The 1960s heralded a sexual revolution, transforming society’s vision for sex and relationships. With an appealing narrative of freedom and authenticity, the revolution won the hearts and minds of many.
The church’s leaders and faltering apologists seem overwhelmed. And biblical Christians tend to react defensively rather than offering a compelling vision of their own. Many young Christians are questioning whether the gospel really is good news in this area
But What if …
We faced up honestly to our sub-Christian culture of shame?
Re-imagined what it means to made sexual in the image of God?
Remembered that we flourish when we live in harmony with God’s design?
And left behind the broken promises of the sexual revolution to tell a better story of our own?
