How far is too far? If you’re a parent or a young person, this is something you have undoubtedly thought about. It’s a very common question asked of pastors and youth pastors.
And it’s good that we ask this question because our actions have consequences. As followers of Christ, our desire should be to honor him in everything we do —including sex and the physical aspects of a romantic relationship.
We live in a world that is overly sexualized, and we are bombarded from every angle with the message that we should do whatever makes us happy. But in rightly rejecting this worldview, the church has often gone to the other extreme, demonizing sex and avoiding the topic altogether rather than deal with it.
So, what are the boundaries of a healthy, God-glorifying relationship? How can we protect ourselves and our children? What do we do if we have already gone too far?
This week, Peter, Aaron, and guest-hosts Davontae Harrington and Melissa Hale discuss these questions and help us think from a biblical standpoint about how we can honor God in our relationships.
“God has hard-wired us to desire sex. He created us to desire intimacy and pursue pleasure. But all of those things find their ultimate fulfillment in the proper design that Christ has constructed for them.” ~ Aaron Currin“God has hard-wired us to desire sex.
