Hooking up, “sexting”, friendships with “benefits” – it’s all happening on the college campus. The meaning of both friendship and sex has been lost on the college campus where physical proximity and lack of boundaries affect sexual relationships. Technology makes anytime gratification possible, and virginity pledges and purity rings trade on the fear of unwanted pregnancy and moralism. This elective will explore how a biblical view of sexuality can offer hope to college students who face confusing relationships and choices on campus.
This lecture is from the 2009 CCEF National Conference, “Sex Matters.” Complete audio of this conference is available here.
