Sex Problem

Ever since the sexual revolution of the 1960's, our country's view on sex is more promiscuous than ever before. Most Americans assume that people have sex. It has nothing to do with whether one is married or not, most Americans now view sex as a normal part of the dating practice.

So, how's this overtly promiscuous attitude been working out for America?

Here are some alarming statistics I came across:
  • The United States leads the industrialized world in teenage pregnancy.
  • One in three girls becomes pregnant before the age of 20, 81% out of wedlock.
  • More than 40% of all births in our county takes place outside of marriage.
  • Pornography makes more money in America than Apple, Microsoft, eBay, Amazon, Yahoo, Google, and Netflix COMBINED
How are Christian young men and women doing? 

According to a study done by the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, 80% of unmarried "born again" Christians 18-29 say they have been sexually active.

We have a sex problem.

Clearly, what is needed is a call and a commitment to live Biblical norms. We will live differently than the people of our age because God said so.

How about that?

What would that be like if the church said, "We don't care what the rest of the world is doing. We will live according to God's ways?"
