Taking The Lead in Developing New Sexual Ethics

Posted on by Jeremy Daggett

Dianna Anderson talks about her new book, Damaged Goods: New Perspectives on Christian Purity, in a guest post on Rachel Held Evans’s blog:

We, as the church, must take the lead in correcting our mistakes. We must teach consent, communication, grace, love, and healthy boundaries in talking about sex. Simply saying “no” until the wedding day isn’t enough to equip people with the tools to live out their sexuality in a healthy, God-honoring way. We need to learn how to be sexually mature adults before we can talk about what it means [to] say yes or no.
