Seven Lies about Sex

by Alice Fryling
     
 

Why should we wait for sex? How can we wait? And what if it's already too late?

We believe what we want to, whether or not it is true. We buy into cultural lies about what to value and how to spend our time and resources. And when it comes to relationships, intimacy and sexuality, our culture almost always encourages us to choose the easy lie over the hard truth.

Overview

Why should we wait for sex? How can we wait? And what if it's already too late?

We believe what we want to, whether or not it is true. We buy into cultural lies about what to value and how to spend our time and resources. And when it comes to relationships, intimacy and sexuality, our culture almost always encourages us to choose the easy lie over the hard truth. The problem is that building relationships on lies won't work for long.

In this booklet, Alice Fryling confronts these lies:
Sex creates intimacy.Starting sex early in a relationship will help you get to know one another and enhance your relationship later.Sex without long-term commitment is fun and freeing.If you don't express your sexuality freely, you must be repressed, sick or a prude.Sex is freedom.This is the 20th century! How can God say that sex outside of marriage is still wrong? You can't prove waiting is best. Maybe it's best to take what I can while I can.

After exposing these lies for what they are, Fryling offers seven strategies for defeating or escaping sexual temptation. She shows how God's plan for sexuality within marriage is the only way to experience true satisfaction, intimacy and belonging. At the conclusion of the booklet, she also offers advice and hope for those who have not waited—describing how they can experience forgiveness and healing through obedience to God from now on.
