  • God And The LGBT Community


    Who has the answers to tough questions about sexuality?

    Questions about what the Bible says about the LGBT community abound in Christian circles. Pastors and ministry leaders are flooded with inquiries. Parents and loved ones ask how to respond to a son or daughter asking about reassignment surgery or struggling with same-sex attraction. And many individuals question their own LGBT lifestyle choices.

    Does anybody have all the answers to these crucial and timely questions? Yes! Author Janet Boynes says God’s Word has all the answers!

    In God & the LGBT Community, Janet shares out of her own personal experience of redemption and transformational love. Armed with biblical truths, profound insight, and deeply rooted compassion, she tackles tough issues in an easy-to-read, tangible resource…
    *Is sexual orientation determined at birth?
    *Can someone be a Christian and gay?
    *Should pastors be afraid to address these issues from the pulpit?
    *How can parents validate their children but not celebrate the LGBT lifestyle?
    *Real-life testimonies of redemption.

    If you or someone you know struggles with sexuality, this book points the way to compassion without compromise and delivers the freedom that truth brings!

  • Sexless In The City


    Discover a renewed biblical vision for sex, singleness, and relationships, and transform into an empowered woman of faith equipped to navigate today’s dating culture with vision, clarity, and freedom.

    Let’s face it: being single in today’s culture as a woman of faith can be a STRUGGLE FEST. But it doesn’t have to be. With real talk and straight wisdom, speaker, podcaster, and founder of The Refined Woman Kat Harris says it’s time for a new conversation about singleness, sex, and desire.

    Growing up at the height of the purity movement, Kat knew this much: good Christians don’t have sex until marriage. But approaching 30 and thrust into the New York City dating scene, she found a set of rules was not a compelling enough reason to keep her clothes on. Caught between purity culture’s rules and popular culture’s do what feels good, Kat began a multi-year journey searching for answers to the biggest questions about sexuality and faith:

    *What does the Bible really say about sex?
    *Why does almost everyone deal with some sort of sexual shame?
    *But really–what’s a single girl to do with her sexual desire?
    *What if we never get married . . . then what?

    It turns out Kat was asking questions that countless women were dying to ask but didn’t know they had the permission to do so. Hungry for clarity, she researched, wrestled, and discovered a God who wasn’t afraid or ashamed of sex and desire as she thought He might be. In actuality, God created sex and desire within humanity and called it very good. Now she believes God desires to restore a generation disillusioned with purity culture and Christian dating, discouraged about their singleness, ashamed of their sexual desire, and uncertain how to practically walk this season out well.

    Join Kat on her messy, sometimes painful, and always honest journey to discovering God’s heart for sexuality, desire, singleness, and our purpose within it all.

  • Talking With Teens About Sexuality


    When Dr. Robinson asked her freshman psychology students what today’s parents need to know about teens and sex, they said parents do not have a realistic view of the world their children live in. A healthy sexual identity requires more than just a list of what not to do. In today’s culture of sexual identity confusion, ubiquitous pornography, and #MeToo, teenagers need to know how to protect themselves as well as how to treat others.

    Talking with Teens about Sexuality will help you understand your teen’s world and give you effective strategies in the midst of cultural pressures. Drs. Robinson and Scott provide scientifically reliable and biblically based information about gender fluidity, types of intimacy, online dangers, setting boundaries, and much more. Along the way, the book provides useful conversation starters and insightful guidance.

    Don’t let fear keep you from engaging in vital conversations. Learn how to talk to your teen with knowledge and confidence, guiding them toward a sexually healthy future.

  • Gen SeXYZ : Love, Sexuality And Youth


    Corrupt the young. Get them away from religion. Encourage their interest in sex….-Vladimir Lenin, 1921, How to Destroy the West

    Going through each of the prophetic statements made by Lenin in 1921 shows why America is where it is today. Only 4 percent of Gen Z think about life through a biblical lens. To them, sexuality is more important than friends, family, or their faith.

    Jeff Grenell’s goal in Gen SeXYZ: Love, Sexuality & Youth is to reach youth, youth leaders, and the church with a message that kicks the devil to the curb and restores sexuality to its God-given origins.

    When the church failed to respond to the sexual revolution of the 1960s and the present one of the 21st century, its role in society crumbled. The media stopped censoring, the government redefined marriage, schools taught progressive sex education, and the list of genders grew. We’ve experienced generational loss because we’ve gotten further away from the source of our original knowledge of sexuality: the Bible.

    Jeff points out that our understanding of sexuality must be anchored to the fact that God is love and the devil stole sex. He provides direct quotations from teenagers and leaders, practical knowledge, and tools to launch a spiritual revolution of love and truth that will grow the church to reach younger generations and combat the loveless, godless sexuality ethic in our culture that’s misleading them.

  • Beyond Shame : Creating A Healthy Sex Life On Your Own Terms


    We all carry sexual shame. Whether we grew up in the repressive purity culture of American Evangelical Christianity or not, we’ve all been taught in subtle and not-so-subtle ways that sex (outside of very specific contexts) is immoral and taboo. Psychotherapist Matthias Roberts helps readers overcome their shame around sex by overcoming three unhealthy coping mechanisms we use to manage that shame.

    Beyond Shame encourages each of us to determine our own definition of healthy sex, while avoiding the ditches of boundaryless sex positivity on the one hand and strict moralistic boundaries on the other. Define your sexual values on your own terms, overcome your shame, and start having great, healthy sex.

  • Our Bodies Tell Gods Story


    In response to a world awash in sexual chaos and gender confusion, this book offers a bold and thoroughly biblical look at the meaning of the body, sex, gender, and marriage.

    Bestselling author, cultural commentator, and popular theologian Christopher West is one of the world’s most recognized teachers of John Paul II’s Theology of the Body. He specializes in making this teaching accessible to all Christians, with particular attention to evangelicals. As West explains, from beginning to end the Bible tells a story of marriage. It begins with the marriage of man and woman in an earthly paradise and ends with the marriage of Christ and the church in an eternal paradise.

    In our post-sexual-revolution world, we need to remember that our bodies tell a divine story and proclaim the gospel itself. As male and female and in the call to become one flesh, our bodies reveal a great mystery that mirrors Christ’s love for the church (Eph. 5:31-32). This book provides a redemptive rather than repressive approach to sexual purity, explores the true meaning of sex and marriage, and offers a compelling vision of what it means to be created male and female. Foreword by Eric Metaxas.

  • Closing The Floodgates Enhanced Edition


    In Closing the Floodgates, psychotherapist Dr. Ann Gillies has written a blockbuster of a book exposing the biased, unscientific, and corrupt methods used to promote the sexual revolution of the last sixty years. In her powerful and compelling analysis, she shows how the truth of scientific fact has been overturned in the interest of pleasure and personal feelings, and how a determined minority is using social engineering to reconstruct our social and moral worlds by redefining gender, sexuality and the family. She draws an alarming picture of the consequences: identity confusion among the youth; sexual abuse and victimization of children; soaring rates of suicide and sexually transmitted diseases; the embedding of false, unhealthy, and immoral teaching in the school curriculum; and the loss of freedom of speech and parental rights. While a few readers may find the level of detailed academic content challenging at times, Dr. Gillies is able to make professional findings understandable and real for the average person. For all the necessary research and statistical reporting, this is a gut-level book. In a time of culture wars, when the truth about gender and sexuality is under attack, this book sets the record straight. It issues a rallying cry to parents and others concerned for the future of the family and western society to be informed and take action before it is too late.

  • Holy Love : A Biblical Theology For Human Sexuality


    Do conservatives or progressives own the teachings about what the Bible says about human sexuality and marriage? For some–perhaps a vocal minority–the question is no longer up for debate or discussion: conservatives win. For others, the issues are not that simple. A fresh, rigorous, but yet concise, theological examination of the Bible’s teachings is required. There are other ways to interpret scripture faithfully with respect to sexuality other than the conservative interpretation.

    In Holy Love, Steve Harper strives to articulate the truth about the teachings of the Bible and Wesleyan tradition on human sexuality. This very accessible book is intended for church leaders, small groups, and those interested in understanding the Bible’s teaching on this fundamental component of human life, experience and relationships. The book will help church leaders and small groups make the constructive case that biblical, Christian teaching is compatible with faithful, covenantal love and intimacy amidst all sexual orientations.

  • Redeemed Sexuality : A Guide To Sexuality For Christian Singles, Campus Stu


    You are a sexual person. Whether you are single or married, a teenager or an older single adult, God created you as a sexual person. So how do we inhabit our sexuality in a way that brings honor to God? And what exactly is sexuality? Is it just sexual intercourse? Or is it perhaps something much greater?

    God created them male and female. From the moment of our conception, we are born in this act of creation as a sexual being. God’s creation was the work of a master artist. It is vital that we discover both the artwork and the artist. God intended for sex to be a wonderful good. When someone allows God to guide them in how they engage in sex, it can be.

    However, sometimes sexuality has become a source of shame, guilt, pain, confusion, frustration, and sorrow. Sexual challenges can come from the choices we make, from the things that others do against us, and from the ways in which Satan has inundated the world with a tsunami of destructive words and images about sex. Those challenges can also come from the lack of being able to talk openly about sex. Perhaps you want to lead a life of sexual purity but you are finding it hard to find solid, biblical answers to some of the very real questions you have. You may feel like you’ve tried to bring up these things with those involved in your life but that you often receive the same-old trite and empty arguments about purity: Just wait or Just repent or God has a plan. Be patient.

    So how do we reconcile God’s intricate and amazing plan for sex with the devastation, destruction, and frustration that sex outside of His plan can cause? How can we pursue purity and honor sexuality at the same time? What exactly is God’s plan for sexuality for those who are not married?

    Redeeming Sexuality answers many of these and other questions that singles, teens, and parents ask the authors in their conferences and sessions, including:
    *What is God’s plan for sex?
    *How should single, working professionals, college students, teens, and all other unmarried individuals understand their sexuality in light of God’s plan?
    *What is allowed and how far is too far?
    *How can we have healthy, intimate connections with others?
    *What is purity and how do we deal with temptation when it is so hard to escape?
    *How do we work through the damage and pain that is already done?
    *How can parents effectively communicate with their kids about sex? This comprehensive guide strives to bring clarity and understanding to topics

  • Hooked : The Brain Science On How Casual Sex Affects Human Development


    How sex is rewiring your brain-for good and for bad

    What does a three-pound brain have to do with one’s sex life? A lot, actually.

    Hooked is about what’s happening to your brain when you’re having sex. With scientific data put in layman’s terms, this book demonstrates that:
    *Sexual activity releases chemicals in the brain, creating emotional bonds between partners. This is great news for marriages!
    *Once formed, however, breaking these bonds can have damaging effects on the brain such as depression and difficulty bonding with someone else in the future.
    *The continual forming and breaking of these bonds can have permanent effects on a person’s brain.

    PLUS! This updated edition also includes a brand new chapter about the effects of pornography on the brain.

    All this data about bonding, sex, and pornography has important implications in a casual sex culture. Regardless of what we wish were true, the facts tell us safe sex isn’t as safe as it seems. Learn about your brain, the positive effects of sex within permanently committed relationships, and how you can protect yourself (especially your brain) from the dangers of casual sex.

  • Born This Way


    Lady Gaga’s song Born This Way has become an anthem for homosexual rights, asserting in a simplistic fashion that same-sex attraction is a trait much like hair or skin color. In Born This Way?, the author surveys the most common scientific arguments in favor of homosexuality and respond to pro-homosexual arguments. A review of the research will show that, while there are some genetic or biological factors that correlate with a higher incidence of same-sex attraction and homosexual behavior, as of yet there is no proof of genetic or biological causation for homosexuality.

    Sexual brokenness permeates our culture and has found its way into the church. Even though Christians are called to value and celebrate sexuality as sacred and good, it is often a source of fear, shame, or secret sin.

    But it doesn’t have to be that way.

    Healthy sexuality concerns what we pursue, not just what we avoid, so Redeemed Sexuality invites emerging adults to seek sexual maturity and discipleship in the context of community. As we experience love, joy, and intimacy with God and others, sexual shame and sin lose their power.

    Integrating theology, psychology, and spiritual formation, participants engage the process of transformation by

    practicing vulnerability
    embracing their identity in Christ
    learning healthy intimacy

    Incorporating peer-to-peer leadership, this field-tested small group curriculum is suitable for use in both men’s or women’s groups. The process is neither linear nor easy, but change is possible because Christ is able. The only question is, Do you want to be healed?

  • Mere Sexuality : Rediscovering The Christian Vision Of Sexuality


    What do Christians believe about human sexuality?

    In Mere Sexuality, author and pastor Todd Wilson presents the historic Christian consensus about human sexuality, the Great Tradition of the church for centuries as taught in each of its major expressions – Orthodox, Catholic, and Protestant. Wilson highlights the stunning shift of opinion on issues of sexuality in the evangelical church and why this break with the historic church is problematic for the future of Christianity. Along the way he provides ordinary believers with an introduction to the historic Christian vision of sexuality, yet does so in conversation with some of the twenty-first century’s leading challenges to this vision.

    In a culture that is deeply confused about human sexuality, Wilson believes it is time for evangelicals to retrieve the historic Christian tradition and biblical teaching on the question of sexuality. Mere Sexuality seeks to guide readers back to the beauty and coherence of this vision of sexuality in the face of an aggressive and all-consuming pagan and secular worldview.

  • Better Story : God Sex And Human Flourishing


    The architects of the sexual revolution won over the popular imagination because they knew the power of story. They drew together radical new ideologies, often complex and hard to grasp, and melded them into the simpler structure of narrative. Crucially, they cast narratives that appealed to the moral instincts of ordinary, decent people.This moral vision overwhelmed the church and silenced its faltering apologists.The author argues that if Christians still believe they have have good news in the sphere of sexual ethics, then two big tasks lie ahead. Our first priority is to work out what has gone so badly wrong, both in our understanding and application of what the Bible teaches and the way we have presented our case to the non-churched. And then we must offer a better story, one that fires the imagination with such force that people will say, ‘I want that to be true.’This book offers a confident, biblically rooted moral vision which needs to be shared with prayer and courage.

    Humans are sexual creatures.

    Our sexuality can be a beautiful and mysterious expression of what it means to be human. But it can also become distorted and sinful.

    Perhaps no issue is as urgent for the church today, or confronts it with as many questions, as human sexuality: What does it mean to fulfill God’s will through our sexuality? To what extent should our sexuality define who we are? How can we navigate cultural trends around sexuality while being faithful to Scripture?

    The Center for Pastor Theologians (CPT) seeks to assist pastors in the study and production of biblical and theological scholarship for the theological renewal of the church and the ecclesial renewal of theology. Based on the 2016 annual CPT conference, this volume brings together the reflections of church leaders and academic theologians who seek to answer the urgent questions concerning human sexuality. Contributors engage with Scripture, draw on examples from church history, and delve into current issues in contemporary culture, including embodiment, marriage, homosexuality, pornography, transgenderism, and gender dysphoria.

    Beauty, Order, and Mystery tackles difficult questions with discernment in order to offer a theological vision of faithful human sexuality for the church.

    In an age where neither society nor the church knows what to do with gay Christians, Greg Coles tells his own story. Let’s make a deal, you and me. Let’s make promises to each other. I promise to tell you my story. The whole story. I’ll tell you about a boy in love with Jesus who, at the fateful onset of puberty, realized his sexual attractions were persistently and exclusively for other guys. I’ll tell you how I lay on my bed in the middle of the night and whispered to myself the words I’ve whispered a thousand times since: I’m gay. I’ll show you the world through my eyes. I’ll tell you what it’s like to belong nowhere. To know that much of my Christian family will forever consider me unnatural, dangerous, because of something that feels as involuntary as my eye color. And to know that much of the LGBTQ community that shares my experience as a sexual minority will disagree with the way I’ve chosen to interpret the call of Jesus, believing I’ve bought into a tragic, archaic ritual of self-hatred. But I promise my story won’t all be sadness and loneliness and struggle. I’ll tell you good things too, hopeful things, funny things, like the time I accidentally came out to my best friend during his bachelor party. I’ll tell you what it felt like the first time someone looked me in the eyes and said, You are not a mistake. I’ll tell you that joy and sorrow are not opposites, that my life has never been more beautiful than when it was most broken hearted. If you’ll listen, I promise I’ll tell you everything, and you can decide for yourself what you want to believe about me.

  • Thinking About Sex


    Very many people, including not a few Christians, do not find the Christian tradition very helpful for making sense of sex. It is not that people willfully forsake a demanding sexual ethic for a more easygoing worldly one. It is that they often cannot see the point of its ‘demandingness.’

    Thus begins author Adrian Thatcher’s project of laying out an unashamedly and wholeheartedly liberal approach to sex and sexuality. Fully aware that for some the word liberal has taken on negative connotations, Thatcher builds on a liberalism in which individuals are encouraged to make up their minds about what faith is and how they are to apply it to their own lives, recognizing that within the boundaries of faith there is much scope for variety in individual belief and practice.

    Using familiar theological ideas, biblical passages, and Christian doctrines, Thatcher sets out to place them intelligibly in a twenty-first-century context. Subjects covered include desire, bodies, sexual difference, marriage, spirituality, and sexualities.

  • Living In A Gray World


    In today’s world, the topic of homosexuality seems to be part of everyday conversation in the media, in politics, and even inside churches, with pressure to accept one view or the other. And if you’re a Christian teen, there seems to be few easy answers to the issues you regularly encounter, such as: Can you be friends with someone who is gay? What if your sister is a lesbian, or you sometimes wonder if you might be as well? Does the Bible really say homosexuality is wrong? What does God want us to do and say? Preston Sprinkle has encountered these same questions, and as a theologian and a college professor he has dealt with these issues firsthand. Through honest conversation, real-life examples, and biblical research, Sprinkle unpacks what we can know to be true, and how Scripture’s overall message to us today allows us to move forward and find answers that align with God’s intent.

    Additional Info
    Few topics are more contested today than gender identity. In the fog of the culture war, complex issues like gender dysphoria are reduced to slogans and sound bites. And while the war rages over language, institutions and political allegiances, transgender individuals are the ones who end up being the casualties. Mark Yarhouse, an expert in sexual identity and therapy, challenges the church to rise above the political hostilities and listen to people’s stories. In Understanding Gender Dysphoria, Yarhouse offers a Christian perspective on transgender issues that eschews simplistic answers and appreciates the psychological and theological complexity. The result is a book that engages the latest research while remaining pastorally sensitive to the experiences of each person. In the midst of a tense political climate, Yarhouse calls Christians to come alongside those on the margins and stand with them as they resolve their questions and concerns about gender identity. Understanding Gender Dysphoria is the book we need to navigate these stormy cultural waters.

  • Faithful : A Theology Of Sex


    Many believers accept traditional Christian sexual morality but have very little idea why it matters for the Christian life. In Faithful, author Beth Felker Jones sketches a theology of sexuality that demonstrates sex is not about legalistic morals with no basis in reality but rather about the God who is faithful to us. In Hosea 2:19-20 God says to Israel, I will take you for my wife forever; I will take you for my wife in righteousness and in justice, in steadfast love, and in mercy. I will take you for my wife in faithfulness; and you shall know the Lord. This short book explores the goodness of sexuality as created and redeemed, and it suggests ways to navigate the difficulties of living in a world in which sexuality, like everything else, suffers the effects of the fall. As part of Zondervan’s Ordinary Theology series, Faithful takes a deeper look at a subject Christians talk about often but not always thoughtfully. This short, insightful reflection explores the deeper significance of the body and sexuality.

  • No Trespassing : Im Gods Property


    This book contains transforming truths every young woman should know about her sexuality, her worth, and her God-given destiny.

    Let’s talk about sex. We might as well talk about it, because it’s everywhere. Our culture continually bombards us with its way for sex in movies, television shows, music, magazines, and other media. But do you know that God has a way for sex, too? In fact, He created sex-it was His great idea! In No Trespassing: I’m God’s Property, Leah Holder proposes that God’s way is the best way. Leah first explains why we should follow God’s rules for sex. In addition to faith-based reasons, she highlights practical reasons, such as sexually transmitted diseases, unplanned pregnancies, and mental health issues. Then, Leah answers the next big question: How? Is it even possible to follow God’s way for sex when so many people don’t? With clarity, transparency, and humor, Leah presents Biblical truths and personal testimonies regarding how we can be sexually pure within this sex-crazy world. No Trespassing contains three brief sections-mind, body, and heart. Within them, Leah provides practical tips to guide us on our journeys to sexual purity. If we’re already on the sexually-pure path, we’ll be encouraged to remain on it. If we’ve departed from the sexually-pure path, or if we’ve never been on it, we’ll be reminded of God’s love and forgiveness, and we’ll be directed to the way to purity. Out of her love for God, others, and herself, Leah Holder has committed to live sexually pure. Although she falls far short of perfection, the Lord has enabled her to live in consistent victory over sexual sin. The advice she provides in No Trespassing isn’t based on a theory she heard about but on a reality she lives! After reading No Trespassing, Leah hopes you will experience the victory and freedom that she enjoys. Many young women experience the devastating effects of sexual activity outside of marriage. These include guilt, shame, unplanned pregnancies, family problems, and even legal and medical issues. This book addresses the root of these issues and offers encouragement and solutions. It urges young women to protect their minds, bodies, and hearts, and it contains Biblical truths, personal testimonies, and practical tips to help them do so.

  • More Than Just The Talk (Reprinted)


    In a sex-saturated culture where kids are exposed to nearly 14,000 sexual references per year on television, and 70 percent of teenagers have encountered pornography on the Internet, parents can’t rely on the traditional one-time sex talk that their own parents muddled through. Kids need to know that it’s natural to be curious about sex and that their parents are the most reliable source of information. Otherwise, their friends and smartphones will be more than willing to give answers that are likely to lead them down the path to sin and heartache.

    Jonathan McKee shows parents how to move beyond the initial awkwardness of this subject into an ongoing conversation with their kids about God’s amazing gift of sex. He equips them to engage in open conversations about dating, temptation, porn, and purity. Parents will find answers to the tough questions most people avoid and relevant Scripture regarding sexual issues. When parents provide the honest answers their kids are longing for, they can become the ones their kids turn to with their questions about this critical topic.

  • Sex Has A Price Tag

    In her decade in a crisis pregnancy center, counseling both Christian and non – Christian teens, as well as speaking to millions of students through the years and counseling and answering the letters of thousands of teens, Pam Stenzel has heard this statement over and over again.

    Sex Has A Price Tag rejoices that, indeed, sex is glorious. Sex is God-give. But sex outside of God’s boundary is behavior that has far-reaching consequences. Outside a monogamous marriage it has a price tag of incalculable costs. This book contains real testimonies encouragement and advice about:

  • God Loves Sex (Reprinted)


    We live in a sexually mad world where God’s gift of sex has been distorted through pornography, promiscuity, prostitution, abuse, trafficking, and rape. The church’s position on sexual matters has been made clear throughout history: all sexual activity outside the boundaries of Christian marriage is sin. But rarely has the church honestly addressed the true needs of Christians who are struggling with sexual desires they believe to be counter to the Bible. So we hide our struggles and pretend to live above the erotic fray, or else we cozy up to the culture’s redefinition of which sins are acceptable. But what does the Bible really say about sexual desire and sexual intimacy?

    God Loves Sex offers a truly liberating, godly view of holy sensuality by recovering the clear meaning of the Song of Songs as God-sanctioned eroticism. Then it uses that lens to answer questions posed by a fictional new Christian struggling with expectations of sexual purity. It asks provocative questions, such as What does it mean to be both holy and filled with rich sexual desire? and How can our sexual struggles take us deeper into the purposes of God?

    Pairing psychological insight with sound biblical scholarship, Allender and Longman bring it all out into the open, allowing Christians of any age and any marital status to discover sex the way God meant it to be.

  • Gay Emperor Is Naked


    Vista Books Ltd
    98% of all people who try heterosexuality find that is who they are, while 80% of people who try homosexuality go on to conclude that that is not who they are. More people have left homosexuality than have ever remained in it, by far. 2% of the people who are actively homosexual at any point in time experience 80% of all STDs. Statistically, it is healthier to be a chain smoker and a practicing alcoholic than an active homosexual. Statistically, gays are, on average, vastly more promiscuous, vastly less faithful in committed relationships, and account for a vastly greater proportion of the use of under-aged persons in commercial sex, have higher rates of smoking, drug use, and alcohol use. Does This Sound Healthy To You? …The evidence is that the great majority of persons who try homosexuality go on to leave it, while this is not at all the case with heterosexuals, which calls into question the innateness of homosexuality. Put differently, the evidence is that most people leave homosexuality behind at some time. There is also substantial evidence that there are common potential causal factors in the childhood histories of adults who identify themselves as homosexual, which suggests that such factors may well have caused homosexual ideation…. It is not only my belief that much contemporary conventional wisdom is based upon casual assertion and little evidence, but also that the truth can be known and that in the knowing of that truth there may be freedom for many who now suffer, many knowingly, others unknowingly. I do believe that truth can set us free. I ask you to pursue truth with me.

  • Sex Trap


    Sex is one of creation’s best gift to humanity. It is one gift that is uppermost in every human being’s mind, and yet it is the most violated and abused of the gifts.

In this book, the author shows the reader the spiritual side of sex that can destroy our bodies and lives if not attended to. Sex is not only physical excitement. It is also spiritual infusion and has more consequences than most people think. It is this spiritual side of things that Pastor Kilton Moyo reveals to the reader. This book therefore comes to you at a time when there is so much confusion about sex and sexuality and becomes your guide in finding the Creator’s mind about our sexuality.

  • Good Sex : A Christian And A Pagan Discuss Sexual Ethics


    Wipf And Stock Publishing
    Good Sex presents sexual ethics in the light of faith. Speaking on behalf of Christianity, Buss describes love your neighbor as yourself as the only Christian rule; it is a positive rule rather than one that focuses on prohibitions. Since this call is never fulfilled in practice, it is joined by forgiveness for oneself and others. More concrete guidelines need to be aided by wisdom which is not specifically Christian. Detailed biblical support is provided at the end. Stipe, a contemporary Pagan, advocates respect for all living things and doing no harm as a minimal ethical guide, leaving positive prescriptions to individual judgment. Buss and Stipe discuss details of sexual ethics in largely positive terms-what is good to do-but also with a concern for problems that should be avoided. They agree in many practical matters, just as Christians and Pagans did many years ago, before sexual equality became an ideal. They discuss various kinds of sex, including seeing and being seen, touching, masturbation, and penetration; different sexual identities; committed and uncommitted relationships, including the advisability of extended relations; having and raising children; abortion; and sensuous awareness in a spiritual setting.

  • 60 Cosas Que Dios Dijo Sobre S


    In many TV shows, the characters move from partner to partner, making sex the be-all and end-all of the male-female relationship. In many magazines, the advertised topics are centered on sex-good sex, better sex, more sex. The entertainment shows are focused on who’s having sex with who. Sex, sex, sex. It’s everywhere! But the only thing that seems to be a definite is that people are trying to find happiness through sexual relationships. God created sex for a specific purpose–and created it good. Sex is a gift from God. The Bible candidly deals with sex (more so than many modern sex manuals!), and this book is forthright in presenting the biblical view of sex as a gift from God, its intended use, and the spiritual parallel of a husband and wife’s sexual union as a symbol of the sacred consummation of Christ and His bride–the church. In this straightforward explanation of the biblical view of sex, Lester Sumrall will show you that the best way to have sex is God’s way. This book is perfect for couples about to get married, parents who think it’s about time to have that talk with their child, or anyone who finds that the world’s view of sex isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

  • Divine Communion : A Eucharistic Theology Of Sexual Intimacy


    First text to place sexual ethics in a sacramental/liturgical context

    * Designed to meet the General Convention mandate for theological reflection
    around issues of sexuality and marriage

    * Appropriate for study regardless of gender or orientation

    Before Christian communities try to address sexual ethics, the more fundamental
    theological question demands attention: What can sexual intimacy tell us about God?
    This book invites reflection on sexual relationships within a broad theological framework
    marked by creation, fall, and redemption. These classical hallmarks of Christian faith are
    proclaimed and enacted at every liturgical celebration of the Eucharist, which offers a
    compelling way to engage the link between sexual intimacy and the longing for God, or
    the hoped-for promise of divine communion.

  • What Is The Meaning Of Sex


    Sex is a big deal. And in our postmodern, post-Christian culture, Christians are feeling the pressure to ditch their traditional beliefs and conform to society’s evolving views on sexuality and gender. Responding to the pressure with conviction and clarity, this book spells out the Bible’s teaching on sex from a biblical perspective, arguing that the ultimate goal of all human sexuality is the glory of God. After outlining key biblical standards and explaining the true purposes for sex (procreation, pleasure, love, etc.), the latter portion of the book explores controversial issues such as homosexuality, the transgender movement, and polygamy. Firmly rooted in the pages of Scripture, this book sets forth a compelling vision of sexuality that is both soul-satisfying and God-glorifying.

    What happens when the temptation to give in to having sex is stronger than your will to stop? How can you stay pure when overwhelmed by passion? Everyone wants closeness and love, but is joining yourself with someone you’re not married to really giving you the kind of love you long for? This handy mini-book, Sexual Integrity: Balancing Your Passion with Purity, helps you find God’s guidance and strength as you pursue sexual purity.

    Doesn’t he see that, since we live in a different age than when the Bible was written, it’s harder to remain sexually pure? What’s important to remember is that there are several examples of people in the Bible, like David, who suffered greatly because he did not have sexual integrity. Human tendencies are the same, and God is the same now than he was when David had sex with Bathsheba, a woman that was not his wife. It was when David surrendered his plans, his mistakes, and his life to God that he experienced freedom from his sin. Let this Christian mini-book guide your steps to having healthy relationships before marriage. Author June Hunt’s insight and Biblical advice will encourage you to live your life the way God intended so that you can experience sexually intimacy within marriage to the fullest.

    Be equipped with knowledge on:
    *12 Reasons for giving in to sex and how to talk yourself out of it
    *3 subtle seduction hooks to avoid
    *5 Bible verses you should know
    *Where to draw the line: How far is too far?
    *The #1 root cause for not maintaining sexual integrity
    *7 myths about sex
    *Sexually transmitted diseases

    You can have God’s power for purity when you trust that his commands will bring you the most joy and satisfaction. It’s hard to abstain from sexual intimacy, but it is worth it.

    Hope for Those Who
    Are Trapped by Guilt

    Though God wants you to wait to have sex within the covenant of marriage, there is forgiveness if you’ve crossed the line. Sexual Integrity will help you know how and what to pray and what Scripture to memorize to help you have the assurance that God offers grace to all who love him. God can empower you to have victory over the past.

  • Fantasy Fallacy : Exposing The Deeper Meaning Behind Sexual Thoughts


    Sexual and emotional fantasies tend to reveal certain areas of trauma, brokenness, and disillusionment that are yet to be healed.

    Many people, including Christians, look to their sexual and emotional fantasies as a road map to where they can find the fulfillment they long for. However these fantasies aren’t a reliable road map into the future, they are actually a rocky road map from the past.

    Shannon Ethridge, best-selling Christian author, certified life coach, and advocate for healthy sexuality offers fascinating insights into common sexual thoughts such as:
    *dating a much older man or much younger woman
    *connecting with strangers via cyberspace
    *gay and lesbian fantasies
    *fascination with pleasure, pain, and power

    Introduced in Genesis, God’s design for sex, beyond procreation, is to offer connection and pleasure for marriage partners. But also in Genesis is an outline of seven sexual fallacies that bring discord, pain, and brokenness. The Fantasy Fallacy helps explain the basis for these fallacies and offers insights to help expose not only the meaning behind them, but ways to face them, heal from them, and find physical, emotional, and spiritual freedom.

  • Joining Forces : Balancing Masculine And Feminine


    Many of us absorbed the rules for being male or female from our families and the culture in which we grew to adulthood. We formed beliefs about a man’s role and a woman’s role based on what we observed and experienced; mostly, those beliefs had to do with what men and woman did rather than who they were. Our ideas about what constitutes masculine and feminine, by now outdated and inadequate, have led to a precarious imbalance both in our inner lives and in our external lives of relating to men and women. The result? A gender war. In Joining Forces, Jeanie Miley explains that our deeply ingrained gender expectations have created an imbalance in our emotional and spiritual lives and have kept us from becoming our most authentic selves. Joining Forces will help readers discover the masculine and feminine characteristics that connect, unite, and restore us-traits that men and women alike can and do express. By joining our masculine and feminine strengths, we restore our own souls, our creative energies, and our own true, essential natures.
