Life Choices: Parental Guidance Necessary -Biblical sex education in a culture gone mad
Does it seem to you that everywhere we look today, parents seem to be losing influence and control over the information our children receive? From online apps, gaming systems, and social media it appears that parental guidance is being bypassed. Back in the day, our parents could look at a movie rating with the PG image and know whether or not it was appropriate for us. This generation of youth are paying a very high price for the bypassing of parents in the area of sex, gender, relationships and God’s design of His creation. The confusion and acceptance of ideas contrary to the plan God has for sex, marriage, relationships and life is ridiculed and destroyed in the minds of our youth. This session will equip you with tools and resources to instill biblical sexuality into the hearts, minds and lives of the youth in your family and community. Our desire is to see adults fully engaged in providing guidance and nurture to this generation in desperate need of spiritual wholeness, physical health and sexual integrity.
