More ‘Sex Education’ from Christians

I don’t know where Christian Nightmares finds this stuff, but kudos to him/her. He/she is a master. This is old… at least, I hope it is… because all of his pop songs are old… but really… “pussing AIDS dude”?

Ridiculous.

I don’t mind his basic point: Sex sales, and don’t buy into everything. It’s the arrogance, lameness and two microphones I have a problem with. Come on! Come on!

Obviously the “you’ll get AIDS and die” teaching method has been incredibly effective over the years.

I’ve never understood using scare tactics to get kids to not have premarital sex. Wedding rings must have mystical powers that protect you from all STDs and birth control failures…

So again, the message–coming from the church–is not, “This is God’s plan, and we want to honor God because He is good,” but instead it’s, “If you have sex, you’re going to get pregnant and diseased.”

Let’s assume for the moment that premarital sex is, in fact, a sin (which I know is up for debate). There are a lot of sins I could commit that would have no negative consequences other than their being sins. So if you really are concerned about premarital sex because you think it’s a sin, then deal with that honestly–talk about what sin does to our hearts and our relationship with God. And if you’re more worried about kids getting diseases and/or pregnant, then you’ve got to be more honest about that. Stop throwing out fake statistics and fuzzy science, and just tell the truth about the risks and how to avoid them. Just stop trying to mix the two.

    Granted, I think the video is in poor taste, and it’s not how I would present the “save sex for marriage” message, but I have to ask: why do you think that the two approaches are mutually exclusive?

    I don’t want my kids to have sex outside of marriage because I believe that God intended for sex to be reserved for marriage. I also don’t want my kids to have casual sex outside of a committed relationship, because I believe that casual sex is dangerous. Why wouldn’t I present both reasons to my kids to give them multiple reasons to choose to live as I would want to teach them?

      What I mean (and admittedly, this is just from my own experience with TLW, etc.), is that how the church deals with teen sex is to use scare tactics, instead of actually molding young people to be good decision-makers. We have entire ministries devoted to preventing teen sex, and events like this one where we tell kids all the horrible things that will happen to them if they have sex (and we also tell them that once they get married, they’ll have, like, the best sex EVER!). All the while, there is very little real discipleship going on. So we’re not teaching kids to love and honor God–we’re just teaching them to follow a certain set of rules. I guess I didn’t word it well–it’s not so much that mixing the two is the issue I suppose. It’s just that on one hand, we say we’re pro-abstinence because we’re Christians. But our message doesn’t really have much to do with God or holiness. I actually went through a promiscuous phase in my late teens/early twenties (even after taking the TLW pledge!), and none of those bad things happened to me. I never got pregnant, I never got a disease. Does that mean that my promiscuous phase wasn’t a problem, because there were no apparent physical consequences? If it really is sin, then we need to be honest and say that nothing physically bad might happen to you, but you’re still dishonoring God. Really, what I think we need is to get rid of the giant parachurch ministries and conferences, and teach kids to walk with and love God. I don’t need a conference to teach me not to cheat on my husband. I love him, so it’s not gonna happen. Does that make sense?

        Thanks for clarifying. My experience with TLW at my church has not been like that at all. In fact, I feel like I get more “don’t do this, or there will be consequences” from the public schools and secular media. But, instead of telling people not to have sex until marriage, they say “wear a condom”, “practice safe sex”, etc. . . “or else.” With this message so prevalent in mainstream media and education, I think it is fair to point out that, even if condoms do make sex safer, they do not take away all of the risks alongside the message that many of us believe, that sex is intended for marriage.

        But, as the video seems to show (I don’t think it ever does explicitly proclaim Christianity), there are some segments in the church who are guilty of the scare message you talk about. And, I don’t doubt that this was your experience. It just isn’t mine.

          Granted, I haven’t been in a youth group for over 10 years. So hopefully things have changed, and my experience is not the norm. I just still think we’re better off teaching kids to love God than to make as big a deal out of sex as we do. Even Paul says that the law awakened in him the desire to sin. If all sin is the same in God’s eyes (meaning one isn’t worse than another), then why don’t we have huge ministries and conferences devoted to preventing other sins such as gossip? That’s a pretty prevalent sin among young people (though it is certainly not exclusive to young people), and it can really damage relationships and reputations. I think it’s the singling out of this one sin that really bothers me. Most of the people I knew who grew up in a really conservative background like I did were never taught to love and honor God. We were just taught don’t have sex, don’t be gay, and we’ve got to fight to get God back in the public schools. I would just love to see a more holistic faith cultivated in young people than the one this video reminds me of.

      What does God define as marriage though? Current societal expectations would say that marriage means exchanging vows in front of family and friends and signing a piece of paper….Who is to say God doesn’t view two people committing to each other in private, or in front of family and friends and consummating their relationship with sex as ‘marriage’? Just saying…I read a book at work (I work in a Christian bookstore) that said “God only wants babies born in marriage” – BULL – I bet the ‘perfect’ idea is that all children would be born in wedlock, but I bet that God still rejoices at the birth of each and every baby, despite the fact that their parents may or may not be married.

      Personally, I had to laugh at this video, mainly because the guy was saying if you have sex outside of marriage you ARE going to get pregnant and or get AIDs or some other STI, which I can tell you from personal experience is bullcrapizzle. I agree with April L. We have entire groups of pastors devoted scaring teens into not having sex instead of talking about what really happens when you have sex before marriage, how hard it makes things on you and your gf/fiancee/wife, the fact that you then know how good sex can be and constantly worry you’ll marry a bad shag, how many partners you and/or your partner have and the emotional detachment that can come with having multiple partners – especially for women.

This is also the same guy that would use concrete blocks over students groin area as they (voluntarily) lay on the table he’s got set up on stage to explain the concept of trusting condoms effectiveness.
