Side Effects of the Sexual Revolution

There is no telling what healing would come if we as the Church would actually pray to our Creator God, seek His holy and pure face, and turn from our sexual sin. Can you imagine being forgiven by God for our country’s grievous sins?

If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. – 2 Chronicles 7:14

These sins are generational – meaning they are being past down from your grandfather, to your father and now you have a choice to pass it along to your children. Just think how God would restore this land if we chose to turn from our wicked ways? Wow!

Well, I know those are heavy thoughts, and this podcast or the subject of sex is not general conversation most of you want to engage in. But I believe God does want you to join in this conversation by learning where America has been and where she is heading tomorrow. After all, there are legal decisions that are being made today dealing with sexuality and your faith that will affect you, your children and grandchildren.

In today’s podcast, we’ll discuss three things:

  1. Why we’re numb to the word, “abortion”.
  2. Why homosexuality is no longer classified as a disease or disorder from the American Psychiatric Association.
  3. Why Christian counselors have an ethics target on their back.

How & Why The Birth Pill Controlled Changed America

The Sexual Revolution Continues

We are living in a sexual revolution. We not only have the cultural elite of entertainment, education, big business and government redefining what marriage and gender roles are, but entire denominations of churches have joined this bandwagon as well.

We see daily news reports of people revolting against God and His sacred design for sex. The culture claims that sexuality is confusing, but God’s Word is crystal clear in Genesis 2:24,

Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

Today, we continue our study on the timeline of America’s sexual revolution. Our focus today is the birth control pill. How did the pill change the way American’s live? How did the pill change the way we think about sex? How did it change the way we view God? What do you think?

In today’s podcast, We’ll discuss three things:

  1. Who is and who has the final authority on moral sexuality?
  2. How do you engage in this conversation with someone who doesn’t believe in God?
  3. How are the birth control pill and pornography related?

How Did America Get Here?

Legalizing “Same-Sex” Marriage

In his book, Fathered By God, John Eldredge talks about the six stages of the masculine journey: Boyhood, Cowboy, Warrior, Lover, King and the Sage.

Within today’s podcast you’ll hear some references to this book. By the way, if you have never heard or read this book, I highly recommend it. Especially if you are a father raising sons.

This podcast is part two of a series titled, “The Sexual Revolution”. It’s a series that I taught at Gateway Seminary. The students just finished their lectures on fatherhood and masculinity and now the class is transitioning into the subject of healthy sexuality.

Today we ask the question,

How Did America Get Here? – Legalizing “Same-Sex” Marriage.

We didn’t get to this point in history over night did we? Nope, so to answer this question we must go back in America’s history a bit – back to the the “roaring 20’s” as a matter of fact.

We talk about a lot of different events fairly quickly during this lesson, so you may want to grab a notebook or journal to make some notes for further study.

In today’s podcast, We’ll discuss three things:

  1. How men get stuck between the Cowboy and Warrior stage of masculinity.
  2. A Brief Timeline of Today’s Sexual Revolution.
  3. How the birth control pill changed everything.

The U.S. Department of Defense Transgender Policy

Just over the past couple months we’ve talked about the department store Target and their transgender policy, President Obama’s transgender bathroom mandate and now this discussion is inside the U.S. military.

The Department of Defense transgender policy states that people who want to have surgery to become the opposite sex will be required to receive a medical statement from a military medical professional that says they suffer from what’s called “gender dysphoria”(a person feels like they are the wrong gender). Once that is noted in their files, then all medical resources will be made available to accomplish any surgical alterations.

This means that the U.S. military will be (for the first time in history) using tax dollars to pay for medical procedures that make people unfit for deployment.

My guest is Retired Col, Dr. Ron Crews, executive director of Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty.

Religious Freedom vs. Sexual Freedom

If The Church Doesn't Have Religious Freedom, Who Does?

It looks like we cannot escape the confusion regarding the new sexual revolution’s demand for gender neutral domination.

The confusion started with higher education, has infiltrated the government, is migrating into the business sector, and now it’s a problem for the Church.

Ft. Des Moines Church of Christ in Iowa is suing the state’s civil rights commission, claiming the state is trying to censor the church’s teachings on sexuality and force the church to allow men who identify as women to use the women’s restrooms.

My guest today is Christiana Holcomb who serves as legal counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom and asks the question, “If the Church doesn’t have religious freedom, who does?”

Should Christians Boycott Target?

Target CEO Brian Cornell is speaking out after 1.3 million people signed a petition boycotting the company over its transgender bathroom policy.

Target released their policy last month, stating any transgender individual shopping at Target can use whichever bathroom corresponds with their gender identity.

My guest today is Abraham Hamilton III, Public Policy Analyst for the American Family Association. Abraham is also a pastor and criminal prosecutor. Listen now to hear about his personal experience prosecuting sex offenders and how Target’s new policy puts your family in danger when shopping.

Protecting Your Family From Obama’s Transgender Bathroom Mandate

President Barack Obama is now forcing schools to allow biological men in women’s restrooms and locker rooms (and vice versa).

Have you heard about Obama, the President of the United States of America, our Commander in Chief…one of the most powerful men in the world is now forcing schools to allow biological men in women’s restrooms and locker rooms.

Under the guise of what is called Title IX and “gender fluidity”, the Obama administration is threatening to withhold federal funding to your child’s school unless it participates.

My guest is Kate Anderson who serves as legal counsel with Alliance Defending Freedom, where she is a key member of the Center for Conscience Initiatives. Kate explains in layman’s terms what is happening and how this will affect your family if these laws are passed.

Is Queen Elsa Now a Lesbian in Frozen 2?

Queen Elsa from the movie Frozen is already a lesbian and now only needs a girlfriend?

I have a friend named Troy. He and his wife have a six year old daughter, and she LOVES the movie Frozen. In fact, she loves ALL THINGS Frozen. This movie was released in November of 2013 and she is still singing the song, she is still watching the movie, she is still wanting toys and backpacks and clothes. Basically, Troy’s daughter LOVES Queen Elsa.

Several weeks ago, the LGBT and Hollywood elites stood together demanding Disney create Queen Elsa’s character into a Lesbian on the sequel to Frozen. They claim, based off of their views in Frozen, she is already a lesbian and now only needs a girlfriend.

How would you suggest that Troy and his wife explain to their precious six year old daughter, that Queen Elsa isn’t looking for prince charming, but rather Queen Elsa – their daughter’s hero – is a lesbian? Of course they will need to explain what a lesbian is to a six year old little girl.

My guest today is Gregory Mertz. He is the U.S. Campaigns Director for the CitizenGO Foundation which has created a petition to let Disney know that we do not want Queen Elsa’s character to turn into a lesbian.

Time Magazine Focuses on Pornography

Around the world, people are viewing 12 million hours of porn…per day. And that’s just one major adult website.

Time Magazine has run a feature story on pornography. The first thing to notice is that the cover itself is pornographic, which is the reason why I covered most of the graphic up. While there are some interesting facts in the article, the conclusion (or lack thereof) is extremely frightening.

Men under the age of 30 have literally watched so much porn that they are experiencing a medical condition called “PIED” . You may have heard of E.D. (Erectile Dysfunction), but these men have given themselves PIED – Porn Induced Erectile Dysfunction. Basically, they have watched so much porn that they cannot physically stimulated by a woman. They have given themselves a medical condition in their 20’s when ED is most common for men in their early 70’s.

Listen to the show now and hear my response to this article and find out why their focus is so blurry.

The Porn Phenomenon

Updated Pornography Statistics from Barna

Love is a commitment that seeks the other person’s best and highest good, no matter the cost to me. Pornography on the other hand is the very opposite of love.

If I asked you to give me a definition of love, how would you define it?

Do to others as you would like them to do to you. -Luke 6:31

There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. -John 15:13

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. 1 Corinthians 13

Those are great examples of what love does. But what IS love?

God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. 10 This is real love—not that we loved God, but that God loved us (how) and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. 1 John 4:9-10 

Love is a commitment that seeks the other person’s best and highest good, no matter the cost to me and on this show we talk a lot about love, lust and pornography. I had Josh McDowell on the show a few months ago and he said – and I’m paraphrasing: “pornography is the biggest problem the church has faced in 2,000 years.” That’s a big statement! I couldn’t agree more. That’s why I’m so excited to have Roxanne Stone on the show today.

Roxanne is Editor in Chief at Barna Group and the general editor of the FRAMES series. She has more than a decade of experience in publishing, serving as an editor at Christianity Today, Group Publishing and many others.  She explains their latest findings regarding pornography and how the impact of porn is having on the digital age.
