Sexuality. It’s hard to talk about.

Posted on 5/21/2016 by Greg Yoder

Today, we’re looking at the fourth reason why three in five young people fifteen and older are leaving the church (according to Barna research).1 Number four is “young Christians’ church experiences related to sexuality are often simplistic, judgmental.” With sexuality lived out on TV, movies, and the internet, “teen and twentysomething Christians are struggling with how to live meaningful lives in terms of sex and sexuality. One of the significant tensions for many young believers is how to live up to the church’s expectations of chastity and sexual purity. . . .Research indicates that most young Christians are as sexually active as their non-Christian peers.” As parents, clear teaching of sexuality and what the Bible says is important. But, doing it out of love and lovingly explaining it is the best way.
