Azusa Pacific University and sex

Azusa Pacific University is an evangelical christian college in SoCal. In their statements about their belief we learn that their motto is "God First," and that they "believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative word of God."

How they deal with the glaring contradictions in the Bible is not explained, but not to worry, because we get to read about something much better, namely their views on sex, and it comes with a great surprise in the end:
8. In Scripture, several sexual behaviors are expressly forbidden, which include but are not limited to: fornication, adultery, incest, unnatural sexual intercourse, and homosexual acts (Exodus 20:14; Leviticus 18:7-23, 20:10-21; Matthew 5:27-28; Romans 1:20-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9; Galatians 5:19; Ephesians 4:17-19; Colossians 3:5).

Azusa Pacific University pledges to guide the university community toward understanding and embracing their God-given sexuality as reflected in this statement. Any deviation from a biblical standard of sexual behavior is sin and therefore is an opportunity for repentance, grace, and redemption, so that as a community we might honor one another and glorify God.
In other words, it makes sense to explore fornication, incest, homosexuality, etc. because it leads to God. That would be quite an incentive for prospective students who weren't admitted to UCSB.
