Scriptures: Proverbs 5:15-23, 7:6-8, 7:13-18, 2:16, 5:3-5, 6:24, 7:5, 7:21-23, 5:14

Parents can discuss many subjects without difficulty. Cars, sports, fashion, friendships, God and faith. But when it comes to talking with our children about sex, many parents whither under the challenge. And because parents are not talking honestly, biblically and early, we continue to see tremendous challenges with young people who engage in sex before marriage, too early and with tremendously negative consequences. Believing that God's Law was somehow written in pencil, we have given over sex education to a culture that is passing out erasers. In this message, Dr. Merritt gets up front and honest about sex education for children from a frank and biblical perspective.

"For too long, both pastors and fathers have had their heads in the sand hoping this topic would just go away. But the subject cannot be avoided. The sad fact is, our children are getting their sex education in schools, social media, the television, magazines, billboards, and among their friends, but not at home. Solomon wisely observed about the person who goes wrong in the area of sex. 'He shall die for lack of instruction, and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.' (Proverbs 5:23) Our children are dying physically from venereal disease, emotionally from guilt, and spiritually from sexual sin, because of the lack of proper instruction." --Dr. Merritt
