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.

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.”

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."

Virginia Children's Locker Rooms and Showers Open to the Opposite Sex?

“It’s about the Children”

The media, lobbyists, Democrats, and spineless Republicans have already determined the narrative, parameters, and outcome for Bob Marshall’s House Bill 1612, known as the Physical Privacy Act.  They call it the “bathroom bill”, all opposition is “bigoted and hateful”, and “the bill will die in committee”.  As Speaker Bill Howell said, “It’s just Bob being Bob.”  The more you learn about the bill, thank goodness it is “Bob being Bob”.

 What parents, grandparents, and others don’t know is that not passing HB 1612 could eventually open Virginia’s public school locker rooms, showers, and hotel s on overnight stays to members of the opposite sex.  You heard it correctly.

VA Governor Signs Executive Order to Shut Out Businesses not in Favor of Homosexuality

Michael Ware | Sons of Liberty

 It is one thing to say that you want to be fair to all people. If you wish to treat every person the same, then I have to say that I am with you all the way. However, if you say that we are going to include all unless they disagree with you or me, then you have just become the thing that you wish to get rid of in our society.

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe does not have the foresight to see the inconsistency in his latest executive order. If he does, then his intolerance of Christians is harsh to say the least.

Christian News reports:

The Democratic governor of Virginia has signed an executive order requiring the state to only enter into government contracts with businesses and organizations that have policies in favor of homosexuality, effectively banning Christian entities and others from working with the state.

Physical Privacy Act Bill: Protect Your Children in Public Schools

Pat Boone wrote a piece titled: Founding Fathers Legislated Morality and Don Blake of the Virginia Christian Alliance calls upon our Virginia members of House and Senate to read it.   The safety and privacy of our children is at stake.  Inaction on Bob Marshall’s bill 1612, Physical Privacy Act  will only promote the agenda of the radical LGBT special interest groups in our public schools.

But, seems like your legislative leaders are gun shy and do not want to take up the controversy.  The Virginia citizen can change that.  You have heard the mantra “You can’t legislate morality”?  This is a flat out lie when seated in historical context.

“Moral law, whether codified by civil law or not, is absolutely essential to any society’s survival; if history teaches us anything, it reveals that all great governments and states have disintegrated when they became corrupted with immorality — no matter how you define immorality.” Pat Boone
