Biblical Sexuality

Promoting Biblical Sexual Morality Through Abstinence Only Education And Programs Such as True Love Waits

Introduction

Sex has become one of the biggest driving forces in today’s society. In January 2006, Save America Ministries released, “Sexual Seduction of the Union: A Sexual Portrait of American Life,” a study on sexual beliefs and activities in America. The results are staggering: “40% of 9th graders have had sexual intercourse… 50% of high schoolers admit having engaged in intercourse… 50% of teens have engaged in oral sex.” Furthermore, “52% of American women have sex before 18, but 75% have sex before marriage… 2/3 of teens are sexually active by the end of high school, despite 89% having attended sex education classes... 60-70% of “Christian” men admit seeking out pornography…”[1] The list goes on, and it only gets worse. We live in a society that has turned its back on God and sought sex in place of Him, mistaking sex, lust, and infatuation for love. Hollywood flaunts a false image of romance with physical attraction at its core. Movies tell us that physical attraction and sex lead to love, but this image of love could not be further from the truth.

Harvey Weinstein: The Left’s Culture Rape Monster

The Left’s culture war protects its own monsters.

Daniel Greenfield | FPM

 In the spring of his final year as a movie mogul, Harvey Weinstein was doing what he always did. Or rather what he always did in public view: as opposed to what he has been accused of doing in hotel rooms and deserted office storage rooms. He was fighting a ratings war over a movie with adult content.

The movie was 3 Generations. It had been made two years earlier to cash in on the transgender boom. Back then it was called About Ray. But the reviews were bad and the movie was pulled a few days before it was supposed to be released. What do you do with a bad politically correct movie that you paid $6 million for? You start a culture war. And that’s exactly what Harvey Weinstein did.

He enlisted GLAAD, the gay rights group, to lobby for a PG-13 rating for the newly renamed movie.

Pushing Back Transanity Sports World

Dr. Michael Brown | Barbwire

Every so often, there is a moment of sanity that pushes back against transgender activism in the sports world, although the reaction to the sane decision is often anything but sane. And so it happened in Australia, where, “A male-female transgender athlete has been blocked from taking part in next year’s Australian Rules Football professional women’s league, according to the BBC.

“Callum Mouncey, who calls himself ‘Hannah’, stands 6ft 2in and weighs 15st 8lb [= 218 lbs.]. And wears size 15 shoes, according to his Twitter account.”

Did you get that? A biological male, who identifies as a female, will not be able to play for the female branch of Australian Rules Football. As the league explained, it took into consideration “transgender strength, stamina, physique, along with the specific nature of the AFLW.”

Transgender Ruling Reversal: Reclaiming the Land as in the Days of Joshua

by Linda Wall

During the reign of King Obama a decree was issued by Attorney General Holder adding gender identity and transgender to protection status under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Prior to that decree, Title VII specifically barred employers from discriminating against employees based on sex, race, color, national origin and religion.

Last week Attorney General Jeff Sessions withdrew the 2014 Obama era policy that made sexual orientation a protective status. Sessions wrote in the Memorandum: “Title VII expressly prohibits discrimination ‘because of…sex’…and several other protected traits, but it does not refer to gender identity. “Sex” is ordinarily defined to mean biologically male or female.

Gender Ideology Harms Children

The American College of Pediatricians urges healthcare professionals, educators and legislators to reject all policies that condition children to accept as normal a life of chemical and surgical impersonation of the opposite sex. Facts – not ideology – determine reality.

1. Human sexuality is an objective biological binary trait: “XY” and “XX” are genetic markers of male and female, respectively – not genetic markers of a disorder. The norm for human design is to be conceived either male or female. Human sexuality is binary by design with the obvious purpose being the reproduction and flourishing of our species. This principle is self-evident. The exceedingly rare disorders of sex development (DSDs), including but not limited to testicular feminization and congenital adrenal hyperplasia, are all medically identifiable deviations from the sexual binary norm, and are rightly recognized as disorders of human design. Individuals with DSDs (also referred to as “intersex”) do not constitute a third sex.1

Pediatrician Smacks Down Leftists Pushing Transgenderism on Kids

The issue of homosexual and transgender is fully addressed in scripture and that is where Christians must rely as their primary defence when confronting the culture of the world.  Looking at wordly studies by "science" is indeed informative, but the Christian is not "of the world" and using the "scientific method" is not applicable since it must be observable and measurable in the present but the Bible is HISTORIC .  The Bible is  a reliable collection of historical documents, written by eyewitnesses during the lifetime of other eyewitnesses. They report supernatural events that took place in fulfillment of specific prophecies, and they claim to be divine rather than human in origin.

First listen to Dr. Voddie Baucham:

This message was preached by Pastor Voddie Baucham on the issue of homosexuality and transgenderism as well as the Christian's attitude and action towards it.

Is the Genderbread Person in Your Child's Classroom?

Genderbread person

 Linda Wall 

Prior to 2014, children who expressed the belief that they were the opposite sex or desired to be the opposite sex were diagnosed with Gender Identity Disorder (GID). However, in order to reduce the stigma associated with this condition, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) renamed the disorder Gender Dysphoria (GD). Gender Identity Disorder no longer appears in the Diagnostic Manual used by mental health professions in the U.S. and many countries.

In three short years, glbt activists have gone wild with the idea that transgenderism is no longer a disorder and are pushing it in the schools. They are threatening schools with the loss of funding by attempting to make up laws that are not on the books. The General Assembly of Virginia has not passed any laws providing special privileges for students suffering from (GID) or (GD).

Join the Back to School Campaign for Porn-Free Schools

From the National Center on Sexual Exploitation

As children head back to school this fall, all of us want to be assured our kids will be in safe environments, right? None of us would want our children introduced to addictive substances like cigarettes or drugs in school, and the same goes for sexually exploitative materials.

Yet, children across the nation, in both public and private schools are susceptible to exposure to sexually exploitive materials.  This is a national outrage! This exposure could damage children’s intellectual development or mislead them to believe sexual violence or lack of consent are acceptable.

We want schools to acknowledge and fix three major problems as children go back to school:

1. Inadequate, or non-existent, computer and Wi-Fi filters;
2. Inadequate, or non-existent, filters to block pornography on school-owned devices like iPads or laptops;
3. Online school databases (like EBSCO) that expose children to pornography and normalize sexually violent and risky acts.

Pastors issue powerful statement against gay ‘marriage,’ liberals are furious

Fr. Mark Hodges | Life Site News

 

NASHVILLE, Tennessee, August 31, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — An Evangelical coalition has released a statement affirming biblical-based sexual morality, calling homosexuality and transgenderism “an essential departure from Christian faithfulness.”

The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (CBMW), a coalition of mostly Southern Baptist and Presbyterian leaders, met to address increasing societal “confusion” about gender and sexuality. The scholars, pastors, authors, radio personalities, and others co-signed a “Nashville Statement” delineating 14 brief, simple affirmations and their contrasting denials regarding natural marriage.

Released Tuesday, the joint statement connects the acceptance of one’s biological gender and fidelity to traditional marriage with God’s intentional plan for all people.

“Western culture … has embarked upon a massive revision of what it means to be a human being,” the statement said. Gender is considered a matter of “an individual’s autonomous preferences.” But this revision leads to “shortsighted alternatives that … ruin human life and dishonor God.”

This Sex Act Symbolizes The Fall of America

 

Warning: Graphic content

When I became a Christian, God’s wondrous design of nature and the human body became a marvel to my “new creation” eyes. 

 

Linda Harvey | WND

As the Lord miraculously opened my heart, I realized that sadly, my former liberal agnosticism had robbed me of simple joy. Jesus, in His mercy, restored it to me.

As I grew in my Christian walk, this passage became meaningful:

“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).”

But American teens are being tutored through media like Teen Vogue to engage in everyday perversion, so it’s critical that we discuss the spiritual implications of such behavior for believers and non-believers alike.

Target launches gay pride products: We ‘proudly stand with the LGBT community’

target donates fifty percent to homo 645 484 55

May 12, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Target stores are promoting a gay pride line of products dubbed "Take Pride" despite facing huge losses from a boycott against the company's transgender bathroom policy.

The retailer is merchandising the gay agenda for the second year in a row, with rainbow-adorned shirts, pants, shorts, swim trunks, iPhone cases, and other items honoring Gay "Pride Month" in June.

The gay-affirming merchandise is accompanied by a promotional flyer with the promise: "For each PRIDE item sold, Target will donate 50 percent of the purchase price to GLSEN (the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network)."

When Target began its "Take Pride" line of merchandise, the company issued a statement:

Transgender Ideology in Public Schools: Parents Fight Back

May 5, 2017 Family Research Council

Fairfax County, VA is ground zero in the efforts to impose transgender ideology on American school children. The Fairfax County school system is one of the largest and richest in the United States, and its close proximity to Washington, DC has made it a target for the efforts to mainstream this radical ideology. Even after the Trump Administration revoked the Obama directive threatening the nation's public schools, the fight rages on at the state and district level.

This panel will present four of the central actors in resisting this imposition: School board member Elizabeth Schultz, who has fought district bureaucrats and the rest of the school board, practically alone, for three years; Meg Kilgannon, a parent of children in the Fairfax County school system who has created a veritable army of parent and taxpayer activists; Josh Hetzler, a legal expert who has traveled the state speaking to school boards and providing draft legal guidance letters, and FRC's own senior legal fellow Cathy Ruse, who has testified several times on the legal and policy implications of these ill-thought policies.

Take part in this pivotal discussion as the panel exposes the tactics used by the transgender lobby and the strategies parents and taxpayers have used to fight back.

Jesus Rose to Save Homosexual Sinners

Linda Harvey | WND

A call came in last week to our organization, Mission America, leaving this message: “I just came across your group and your viewpoint,” the young girl said, “and I just want you to know that I am proudly gay, and I and many others intend to keep fighting for the rights of LGBT people and for the human rights of everyone.”

After listening, the cynic in me immediately thought, “Well, Mission America fights for human rights, too. Would she defend the rights of faithful Christians or Christian business owners?”

But then, the mom in me paused and remembered how young she sounded, recalling my own foolish teen ideas. I took a minute to pray for her, and I urge those of you reading this to do the same. Please pray for all the tragically deceived young people out there. 

They really think they are bravely doing what’s right, since that’s what they are being told. Those who have homosexual attractions and gender confusion are reassured by the culture’s voices of influence that they are “being true to themselves” to pursue this path. Their allies defend these harmful behaviors as well. 

They feel noble, empowered and righteous. The upcoming April 21 “Day of Silence” in schools will milk the “LGBT” victimhood narrative for all it’s worth, even though this movement is hardly silent but screams its demands as a reckless, ruthless bully throughout American culture.
