Yes, I said it. Sex. It’s all over the place, in the music, on tv, in video games, all over the internet, on billboards, at the store, it’s all over. As I get older, my concern moves to my kids, my daughters and my boys. They are growing up, they are still young but they are hearing about sex at school from friends. It seems like everyone is talking about sex, are we?
Sure, the church talks about sex, we have Ed and spouse sleeping on the roof, we have Mark Driscoll writing a book that is full on controversy, but are we addressing the issues? I was simply told that sex was bad until I was married, don’t have sex or I would die, probably at the hands of my parents. What message are we sending out, what do my kids hear Christians saying about sex?
Sex is kind of a big deal, but our society doesn’t think so. Sex takes two people, makes them one flesh. We take our temple and attach it to another temple. That’s a big deal. We are united with another person, and it’s some something casual. Are we teaching that? Are we teaching that sex is God’s way of joining two people in a bond together that you can’t just shrug and walk away from?
We have a big problem friends. Sex is on the rampage, perversion is everywhere. Soon clothing will be see through and pornography will be public. We are in a downward tailspin, so I would like to know, how are you fighting it? What are your tools and resources? Is True Love Waits enough, is it working? How do we champion and protect the innocence and purity of our kids?
