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.

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.

A Current Overview of Homosexuality in America (2017)

Greene Hollowell 2012 150AGreen Hollowell, Board Member
Virginia Christian Alliance

 Acceptance of homosexuality is now considered a ‘done deal’ by most Americans. Not that they all like it, but like abortion and other immoral actions, they feel that society has moved in a downward spiral and there is no use fighting back for change. 

For those who want to be abreast of the changing attitudes on sodomy, homosexuality, gay, and LGTBQ, here are statements for your consideration. Most statements below would now be denied by the LGTBQ activist.

Same-sex and gender confused people are fundamentally disordered and their sexual acts are immoral.

Social conservatives applaud, LGBTQ lobby condemns SCOTUS rejection of transgender school case

Peter LaBarbera | Life Site News

 Don Blake, chairman and president of the Virginia Christian Alliance, said that while gender-confused students like Grimm deserve care and compassion, “Government should not be in the business of normalizing a mental illness, especially through the schools.”

Echoing the American College of Pediatricians, Blake told LifeSiteNews that from a parent’s perspective, “it is child abuse to enable and encourage a child” like Grimm not to “grow up in her natural gender.”

 WASHINGTON, D.C., March 6, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Reaction was swift and impassioned from both sides after the Supreme Court decision Monday to vacate the case of a gender-confused female student demanding school accommodations to live as a “boy.”

Ben Shapiro Uses Age To Counter Transgender Argument — ‘Why Aren’t You 60?’ [VIDEO]

The Daily Caller

Shapiro — after arguing with a young woman about how “gender is not disconnected from sex” — decided to pick a comparable category to prove his point.

“Let me ask you this. I won’t ask you how old – I will ask you how old you are, because you’re young enough that it’s probably not insulting to ask you,” he posed to the young woman, who responded, “I’m 22, so I’m probably a little bit naive, right?”

“No,” he continued. “Why aren’t you 60? Why aren’t you 60? Why can’t you identify as 60? What is the problem with you identifying as 60?”

“It’s not the same as gender,” the young woman countered.  “You can’t just…”

“You’re right!” Shapiro shot back.

“You can’t magically change your gender. You can’t magically change your sex. You can’t magically change your age.”

You can watch his entire discussion below.

Virginia Faith Leaders Angry Over Failed Controversial Bathroom Bill

wwbt

by Ashley Monfort

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Several Virginia faith leaders are coming forward and are angry that a controversial bathroom bill did not make it very far in the General Assembly. They say they are unfairly being attacked for their views.

The meeting started with prayer then several faith leaders from across the Commonwealth turned their attention to the bathroom bill that failed in the General Assembly.

"Now we want to say it's okay for men to enter our wives' bathrooms and boys and teens to enter our daughters' bathrooms and locker rooms. Are we crazy?" says Pastor Jim Langlois with The Master's House in Ashland.

A Storied Institution Falls to Social Pressure

Boy Scouts No longer straight

Family Research Council

Last Monday, one of the largest youth organizations in the U.S., with a whopping 2 million members, capitulated once again to the demands of a small but vocal minority. The Boys Scouts of America (BSA) announced yesterday that it will allow biologically female children who identify as male to enroll in its male-only programs.

For an organization whose founding dates all the way back to 1910, and whose original purpose was to prepare young men for battle, this is nothing but a victimization mindset run amok.

In a formal statement published on the BSA's website, they indicated, "For more than 100 years, the Boy Scouts of America, along with schools, youth sports and other youth organizations, have ultimately deferred to the information on an individual's birth certificate to determine eligibility for our single-gender programs. However, that approach is no longer sufficient as communities and state laws are interpreting gender identity differently, and these laws vary widely from state to state. Starting today, we will accept and register youth in the Cub and Boy Scout programs based on the gender identity indicated on the application."
