This is my warning–and I’m not excluded. If parents won’t teach their children about God’s design for sex, they will get it from the wrong people at the wrong places.
A recent stir alarmed non-religious parents and disgusted the Christian community. Teen Vogue, a magazine with a niche audience of 11 to 17 years of age are teaching anal sex. It even provided a graphic guide, glorifying anal sex without telling its dangers.
1. Wake Up, Parents!
If you’re a responsible, especially a Christian, parent, you’ve got to wake up. We are now living in the last days where sexual perversity escalates and even glorified amorality.
There is nowhere in time where immorality and so-called sexual freedom is celebrated and admired without inhibition.
When the nihilistic Playboy philosophy prevailed in winning the culture war, all hell broke lose. The media worshiped it, politics legalized it, and business profited unaccounted billions from it. Sex sells, indeed.
Even many churches are plagued with sexual scandals. Schools are intentionally targeted for sexual reorientation and experimentation that are blatantly dismissing the intention of God for sex.
Sex education at schools are humanistic without moral foundation and compass. Condoms are openly given for teens to explore their sexuality and not wait for marriage. If it feels good, do it–without thinking of the ramifications.
Wake up! “The body, however, is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.”
2. Watch Out Or Be Swallowed.
The progressive social engineering in education is often based on humanistic philosophies, bad science, and biased medical studies. It is often designed to abhor the idea of God as a moral giver and steer away the person from His divine purpose.
As Paul aptly–and prophetically–described, “Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools…Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie.”
Parents, are you aware about this? If not, you will be swallowed by the furious tide of times. Of course, the Christian world cannot expect anything good from this intentional perversion and destruction of young lives. It will even get uglier.
Understand what Apostle Paul further emphasized. “Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.”
Take a close look around. Are these realities alive and more blatant today?
3. Warn Yourselves.
I’ve seen young people who worked in call centers and became “liberated” toward sexual freedom and left churches. Interestingly, it is evident that STDs and AIDS are on the rise on those workplaces. In my resident city, data shows teenage pregnancy is all time high.
Have you observed that atheistic media and secularized education hate the idea of God? It’s because it inhibits the perverted ideas of human lust even if it is committed to young lives like children and teens. Such acts of sodomy will soon be forgotten as merely a conservative norm.
Even if there are medical consequences to such sexual deviant practice, it is simply covered up and denied. But God’s point of view stands.
As such, parents should be warned. Teaching our children about the biblical truth on sex and other related topics is part of our sacred parental duties.
If parents fail to educate their children about the biblical sex, they’ll be able to get pornographic materials on magazine stands, department stores, and the ever-available Internet.
The Rev. Franklin Graham cautioned parents regardless of religious affiliations, “Warn them against what the socialist progressives want to push on the innocents. This issue of Teen Vogue tells them the lie that, ‘There is no wrong way to experience sexuality and no way is better than any other.’ Schools will not teach the truth, the media will not teach the truth—it’s up to you to raise your children in truth and knowledge.”
“Do not be deceived,” the Apostle Paul warned about those deliberate practitioners, “Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men…will inherit the kingdom of God.”
The truth is this. No one who is truly a believer of Jesus Christ will continue to live in sin.
If you care for your family–and I’m pretty sure you do–teach your children on the biblical truth of sex and spirituality, empower your young people to love with purity, and commit to prepare for their marriage with sanctity. Read the book of Proverbs and you’ll soon find out the sacred duty of parents in teaching their kids about sex.
Moreover, teach them to be compassionate to those who are struggling with any forms of immorality and not be judgmental. Instead, as opportunities arise, be like Christ who encouraged the adulterous woman to “leave your life of sin.”
