If you have taught your children to honor and obey God, be assured that your instruction will be assaulted by education, government, and the entertainment culture. If your children value marriage they will be assaulted by these same institutions. More and more those who believe that sex is to be the exclusive blessing of marriage as defined by Scripture are seen as social misfits who are filled with hate.
You may think this language is a little on the extreme side. To verify these concerns ask your school board or local government if they would encourage young people in your community to believe that sex is designed by God exclusively for marriage. The response will be everything from “well, that’s a nice idea but we can’t go that far” to outrage that anyone could be so intolerant to offer such a suggestion in the 21st century. Both answers are equally offensive to God.
This is what the summer of 2013 holds for your children.
