We observe how easy it is for many people to come to a point where the moralistic sexual ethic from church youth group isn’t sufficient and respond by abandoning all our sexual boundaries. So, how do we build a sexual ethic that has a Scriptural basis and is consistent with our religious values? The response doesn’t have to be chaos, it can be human flourishing.
