  • Washed Away Listen

    Aaron Yoder - June 05, 2016

    Is homosexuality a sin and why does Paul address this topic among other serious sexual issues to the church in Corinth?  We study this difficult subject, and lawsuits among believers, to understand what God was saying then...and how it applies to our culture today.
