Sexual Health

Embryo

Despite the fact that the International Planned Parenthood Federation has its headquarters in the UK, the sexual health of Britain is the worst in Europe.  We have the highest rates of teenage pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases.  One in four of all conceptions results in abortion.  The sex educators wish to inform children as young as five or even younger where possible, on all aspects of their 'so-called' sexual rights.  The innocence of our children is being completely destroyed.  Sexually explicit words and pictures are constantly bombarding them from the internet, TV, radio, comics and magazines.  Even the clothes in the shops are advertised to sell 'sex'.

Children have been taught that 'pressure power' (constant nagging of "I want") pays off.  Parents have been told that they must not tell their children what to think or how to behave.  Boundaries of discipline, good manners, good behaviour and respect for others seems to have been so eroded that they are almost non-existent.  Children know their human 'rights' and if they don't then there are enough adults about who will guide them, even if it is against the wishes of their parents.

To be 'sexually healthy' is seen to be a good ideal for all children.  It is equivilent to being sexually active with an 'anything goes' mentalility.  Boy(s) with girl(s), girl(s) with boy(s), boy(s) with boy(s), girl(s) with girl(s).  Age doesn't come into it.  So an adult being sexually active with a child is quite acceptable if the child agrees to such activity, even if they don't understand what they are agreeing to.

In previous generations marriage between one man and one woman was the norm.  People who lived together before marriage were 'living in sin'.  But in the 1960s with the advent of the Pill and easier divorce, that all changed.  Free love without the fear of pregnancy was seen as the ultimate in liberation.  Originally the Pill was intended for married women, then the rules relaxed to include engaged women.  Over time the rules were relaxed again so that women or girls in a 'steady relationship' that might lead to marriage were allowed the Pill.  Then any woman or girl over the age of consent (16 in the UK) were allowed to have access to the Pill.  And now we have the shameful situation where not only school girls can obtain the Pill free of charge, then can get it via a school nurse.  Their parents nor their GP need know if the girl does not wish to tell them.

So if a young girl has adverse side effects from the Pill neither her parents nor her GP will know what the cause could be.  The child could die because she is too embarressed to tell her parents she is on the Pill, because to admit to that would be admitting she is sexually active, or intends to be.  Her (sexual) health is compromised because of the secrecy surrounding her taking the Pill.  Her sexual health is also compromised as the more partners she has sexual realations with, the more likely she is to contract sexually transmitted diseases or infections.  STIs can be treated with antibiotics, but once a STD is contracted this is normally a lifelong disease that can destroy a life over time.  The rate of these STIs and STDs have risen dramatically over the last few years to ever younger girls and boys who through the 'sexual health' classes in schools have believed the lies that say that so long as they practice 'safer sex' (using a condom) then it is okay to experiment with as many partners as they like as often as they like.

 But should we be allowing our children to be led down the road to destruction?  What is the 'hidden agenda' behind the sex educators?  Is it really our nation's health they are concerned about, or could it possibly be the nation's wealth?  The production of contraceptives and medicines to try and combat sexually transmitted diseases or infections, plus the costs of killing babies by abortion when the contraceptives fail is a multi-million pound or dollars industry.  The big pharmaceutical companies do not want their profits to diminish so the sex educators are encouraged to continue to promote sexual health and safer sex to more and more youngsters.

Do you care enough to stand against those who are seeking to destroy the sexual health of our children and ultimately, our nation?

Ten Essential Differences Between the Teachings of
Sex Education and The Bible
Sex Education The Bible
1. Demoralises Sexual Conduct
The message of sex education is fundamentally amoral.  It does not recognise the concept of sexual immorality, and no form of sexual behaviour is condemned as wrong.  As sex education is non-judgemental all types of sexual behaviour are acceptable.  Sex education literature, therefore, does not condemn promiscuity and homosexuality.  And so children are taught about sex without being warned that any type of behaviour is wrong, perverted or depraved.
1. Bases Sexual Conduct on God's Law
The Bible teaches that sexual conduct is subject to God's moral law.  According to God's will for mankind, created in His image, sexual activity should be reserved for marriage.  The acts of the sinful nature include sexual immorality and impurity.1  'This is the will of God... you must abstain from fornication; each one of you must learn to gain mastery over his own body, to hallow and honour it, not giving way to lust like the pagans who know nothing of God...'2
2. Condemns Moralising and Preaching
According to the Government's Social Exclusion Unit it is a mistake to drift into moralising when teaching children about sex.  'Preaching is rarely effective.  Whether the Government likes it or not, young people decide what they're going to do about sex and contraception.  Keeping them in the dark or preaching at them makes it less likely they'll make the right decision.'3
2. Teaches Morality, Preaches the Gospel
Preaching the Word of God is central to biblical faith.  The Bible askes, 'And how shall they hear without a preacher?'  How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the Gospel of peace.4  Jesus decalres that the Gospel 'will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations.'5  If it is the power of God for the salvation of all who believe,6 it has the power to change young lives.
3. Promotes 'Informed' Choice
Sex education provides children with information about sex and invites them to make an 'informed' choice whether to have sex or not.  'It can be hard to decide if you should have sex or not.  But in the end it's what's right for you, and only you can answer that.'7  Children are invited to make up their own mind, to go their own way, to do whatever they feel to be right in their own eyes.
3. Demands Obedience to God's Law
The Bible teaches that the choice is between obeying or disobeying God's law.  Jesus illustrated this truth: 'Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.  Because narrow is the gate and difficult the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.'8  Jesus invites young people to deny themselves and follow Him.
4. Regards Promiscuity as the Norm
Sex education promotes the idea that the norm is for children to be sexually active.  'Seventeen and the only virgin in my class - I thought I was the last person in the world who'd never had it.'9  The message is, everybody's doing 'it', so you should be doing 'it' too.  Children are being persuaded to follow the crowd and have sex.  The pamphlet advises a young virgin that 'being prepared (with condoms) doesn't mean taking the fun out of sex.  And it doesn't mean you are planning to sleep around.  It just makes sense.'10  Teenagers are led to believe that it is acceptable for them to 'have sex'.
4. Teaches Self-control
The Bible teaches that is is wrong to indulge our sexual appetities.  The grace of God is 'training us to renounce impiety and worldy passions, and in the present age to live lives that are self-controlled, upright, and godly.'11  Young women should be self-controlled, chaste'; young men should be taught self-control.12  The man who lacks self-conrtol is like a city with broken down walls,13 defencelsess against the ravages of sexual immorality.  Most young people, because they're created in the image of God, know in their conscience that promiscuity is wrong.  Most are not sexually active.
5. Blames Teenage Pregnancy on Ignorance
Sex education claims that ignorance is a major cause of unintended teenage pregnancies.  It is important, therefore, to provide children with the facts about contraception.  'Knowledge of the different types of contraception, and of access to, and availability of contraception is a major part of the government's strategy to reduce teenage pregnancy.'  Trained staff in secondary schools should be able to give full information about different types of contraception, including emergency contraception.14  The lie is that condoms protect children from the consequences of sexual immorality.
5. Warns of Consequences of Immorality
The truth is that sexual sin has consequences, that we reap what we sow.  'The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body...  Flee from sexual immorality.  Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.'15  Sexual sins can have serious physical consequences, such as pregnancy, abortion and STDs.  Parents and the Church have a responsibility to teach children the difference between right and wrong, warning them of the appalling consequences of sexual immorality.
6. Promotes 'Safer Sex'
Sex education explains how to make teenage sex 'safer'.  Young perople are told: 'Fact: only condoms provide "all-in-one" protection against pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV.16  And so it's important for young people to know all about safer sex.17  'If you're having sex, you'll want to protect yourself and your partner from sexual infection and unplanned pregnancy.  Used correctly condoms are the only form of contraception which can do both.'18  Sex education advises children to 'make sure you've got condoms with you.  It is better to be prepared than risk unsafe sex.  After all, you can easily hide condoms in your pocket or purse.'19  Children are advised to practise using condoms so that they are 'prepared for sex'.  And sex education teaches young people the skills they need to enable them to negotiate safer sex with a partner.20
6. Teaches Modesty, Chivalry, Chastity and Fidelity
The Bible teaches the four virtues - modesty, chivalry, chastity and fidelity.  While each virtue applies to an aspect of sexual behaviour, together they form a coherent inner belief system that sets a standard for sexual conduct that gives meaning to marriage and the family.  Modesty is the virtue that enhances the inner beauty of women.  It teaches women to behave with reserve, not to make an outward display of their sexuality.  Chivalry is the virtue that teaches men to relate to women with honour and respect.  It gives men the inner motivation to practise self-control, honesty and decency in relationships.  Chastity is based in the desire for sexual purity, both before and after marriage.  Fidelity safeguards marriage and the family.  In His great wisdom, God has instituted moral laws around human sexual conduct that preserve marriage, secure the family and protect children.
7. Uses Explicit Language and Images
Sex education literature uses language and images to deliver its message.  Children are coerced into using words and looking at images from which they would naturally recoil in shame.  For example, the technique of the sex word brainstorm invites children to write down as many sex words as they've heard, and to shout them out to the group.  Many sex education booklets contain explicit drawings of the sexual organs.  The condom demonstrator, shaped like an erect penis is used to teach children how to use condoms.  The effect is to desensitise children against their natural sense of shame and embarrassment.
7. Demands Purity of Speech, Eyes, Mind
The bible teaches that 'God has not called us for impurity, but in holiness.'21  Sexual purity is at the heart of Christian behaviour.  'How can a young man keep his way pure?  By guarding it according to your Word.'22  An essential mark of Christian conduct is purity of language.  Unwholesome talk should not come out of our mouths; we should rid ourselves of filthy language.23  Jesus said that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery.  Therefore, 'if your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away'.24  An attitude of mind that seeks after sexual purity is at the heart of biblical teaching.
8. Focuses on Talking About Physical Sex
Sex education advises that 'it is essential that schools can help children and young people develop confidence in talking, listening and thinking about sex and relationships'.25  Teenagers are encouraged to 'talk condoms before it's too late.  If you discuss protection with your partner early on it will be easier to agree on safer sex...'26  The Department of Health has commissioned a national campaign to help parents talk to their sons and daughers about sex.  A Government pamphlet suggests that parents may say to their child; 'Have sex with someone you really care about and who will share responsibility for contraception and safer sex.'27  The message is that parents should teach their children that responsible behaviour means using contraception, although failure rates (around 15% per year) are not mentioned.
8. Instructs Parents to Teach God's Law
Parents are responsible for teaching their children the moral laws of God.  'And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.  You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.28  According to Proverbs, parents are responsible for warning their children about the dangers of sexual immorality.  And children should not forsake the commands of their parents.  'When you walk they will lead you; when you lie down, they will watch over you...  For the commandment is a lamp, and the teaching a light, and the reproofs of dicipline are the way of life, to presrve you from the evil woman...'29  Christians are encouraged to think about whatever is true, noble and pure.30
9. Ignores or is Hostile to Marriage
Sex education teaches children that marriage and cohabitation are morally equivalent relationships.  'The Government recognises that there are stong and mutually supportive relationships outside marriage.  Therefore, children should learn the significance of marriage and stable relationships as key building blocks of community and society.'31  While sex education ideology is profoundly hostile to marriage, its usual approach is simply to ignore marriage.  One teacher explained, 'We don't, as a matter of policy, mention marriage or use the terms "husband" or "wife".'32
9.Teaches Marriage is Ordained by God
The Bible teaches that God ordained marriage as the most fundamental human relationship.  'Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.'33  Marriage has two main purposes.  The first is to create a lifelong, secure, personal, intimate relationship between a man and woman.  The second is to produce children.  Jesus endorsed marriage as a divine ordinance with the words, 'So they are no longer two but one flesh.  What therefore God has joined together, let man not separate.'34  Marriage is the foundation of a good society.
10. Approves of Homosexuality
Sex education condones and even encourages homosexual relations.  According to Lovelife, 'sexuality can be confusing at the best of times and if you're not sure which sex you're attracted to, you're not alone.  Discovering your sexuality may take time, and you're the only one who can decide where your true feelings lie.  If you want a private chat with people who undrstand what you're going through, there are organisations such as the London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard who you can call...'35  Another sex education pamphlet explains, 'But you may be sexually interested in other men - or even men AND women.  It's not a problem; your body is yours to share with whomever you choose.'36
10. Condemns Homosexuality
The Bible teaches that homosexuality is wrong.  God created male and female, and the purpose of human sexuality is fulfilled in the marriage of one man and one woman.  Sexual relations between people of the same sex are described as unnatural.  'The men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shamleless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.'37  'Do not be deceived!  Fornicators, idolaters, adulterers, male prostitutes, sodomites, thieves, the greedy, drunkards, revilers, robbers - none of these will inherit the kingdom of God.  And this is what some of you used to be.  But you were washed...'38

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray
and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways,
then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
