Sexual drama pervades our culture. Sex sells clothes, cosmetics, boats, books, cars, movies, and music. Sexual expression is a highly coveted and hotly contested freedom. In our permissive society, God's good purposes for sex are distorted and misunderstood in myriad ways.
So how are we to live in such a society? Should we burrow ourselves away, leaving the world to its wicked ways? Or do we head the other way, wanting so much to reach the world that we ignore and even accept its sexual standards? Is there a way to live righteously and spread the redemptive love and truth of God to those we live among? This study addresses these questions, using an article by Mark Buchanan from LEADERSHIP JOURNAL.
