A new perspective on how Christians make entertainment choices and engage with the hypersexualized media that pervades our culture.
I was compensated for my time in writing this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
How Christians should engage with culture is not a new topic. Jesus talked about it, Paul wrote about it in his letters in the New Testament, probably every church leader since then has dealt with it. And if you’re a parent, it can consume you.
How do we equip our children to handle the hypersexualized media that pervades our culture?
This has been a topic of discussion in our home since our kids were young, and hasn’t stopped now that our boys are 21 and 19. In fact it’s even more relevant now, as we want to prepare them to lead homes of their own one day.
In all of the years that my husband and I have delved into this issue, the goal of all of the material we’ve seen has been the same: personal purity. And that is a noble and God-pleasing goal.
But it’s not the only goal.
