Today’s singles are facing a sexually saturated and sexually chaotic culture filled with sexual fluidity, multiple partners, gender confusion, social app hook-ups and no boundaries.
One of the greatest threats for the modern church and Christian girls is the distortion of God’s purpose of our sexual design with the increase of porn use (among men and women), sexual exploitation on college campuses, cohabitation, and sexual experimentation.
In order for Christian girls to be confident in their godly decisions regarding sex and sexuality, they need to be equipped with a bold biblical perspective and have the confidence to talk openly about it.
In her book Sex and the Single Girl (Moody Publishers), clinical psychologist Dr. Juli Slattery discusses how single girls can honor God with their sexuality, discover sexual healing and redemption, and stand firm on godly principles that go against the culture of sexual freedom. Other topics include:
Sexuality and Your Character: Your sexual choices are spiritual choices because they reveal your character and define who has authority over your sexuality. (1 Cor. 6: 18-20)
Sexual Boundaries: God’s desire is for you to make wise choices to protect you from emotional pain and spiritual harm. (1 Thess. 4:3-5, Matt. 5:28)
Battling Temptation: Satan takes your desire to express your sexuality and present counterfeit intimacy that end up in hurt, rejection, and shame. (Matt. 26:41, 1 Cor. 10:13, James 1:13-15)
Restoring Intimacy with God: God understands shame and fear and has offered freedom from the bondage of sin and secrets. God covers you with freedom not shame. (John 1:8-9)
Sex and the Single Girl is designed to challenge women to examine the assumptions underlying their sexual behaviors and beliefs and strengthen women in an intimate relationship with God who cares about every aspect of her life. Additional information is available at www.authenticintimacy.com.
