A free floating commentary on culture, politics, economics, and religion based on a passionate commitment to the truth and a desire graciously to refute that which is contrary to it….
"He must hold firm to the sure word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to confute those who contradict it."
--Titus 1:9, Revised Standard Version

YET more links coming soon...! including Non-Anglican links
Seduction and sensuality aren't "bad," just the opposite — they are wonderful things that were meant for marriage. So, our children's response to such things is not something for our kids to feel "guilty" about, but to orient rightly.
What a gift we give our kids when we communicate that to them.
And so, when my children do come across that garbage, I don't want them to just turn away and say, "I can't look; it's wrong." I want to help them to think: "How sad that God's gift of sensuality would be used in such a cheap way."
At the same time, our kids have to understand — we have to tell them — that they are in a culture that pushes them, particularly our girls, to be hyper-sexualized — and it's all part of the same, empty continuum. A dangerous continuum that will never recognize that sensuality outside of marriage is just not, well, good enough for them.
Now, as a mom to four young kids, I'm not naive to think this orientation offers any magical protection for anyone. But I do think we parents have to parent boldly, and in countless ways stand up against the culture and for our kids. This is one of them.
Read it all.
