This is a very interesting article. I have to admit, in the 90’s, I got fully behind the purity/true love waits movement, but I always felt there was something missing in what we were teaching. True love does wait, but it’s more then that. Love doesn’t wait just because we found verses in … More STUDENT MINISTRY AND THE PURITY CULTURE
I had the honor of speaking to my youth group on Sunday night. My topic was “Are you too busy” with Psalm 90 as my Sermon Reference. I think it went well. Here’s the lesson, small group questions are at the bottom.

I can’t say enough “AMEN’S” for this article. I have to be honest and said that I’ve used this argument a few times, and it’s been a very hollow argument/statement.
