What is sin ? The word isn’t used much any more. Popular preachers such as Robert Schuller and Joel Osteen refuse to mention sin in their sermons. There probably are not many people, whether they attend church or not, who can define sin,or give practical examples of how sin has separated them from God and their fellow humans. Cornelius Plantinga Jr. wrote a book in 1995,that does a good job of describing sin and its effects. Not the Way It’s Supposed to Be:A Breviary of Sin,is a book that deserves to be read.Professor Plantinga says the following about sin,
The Bible presents sin by way of major concepts,principally lawlessness and faithlessness,expressed in an array of images: sin is the missing of a target,a wandering from the path,a straying from the fold.Sin is a hard heart and a stiff neck. Sin is blindness and deafness. It is both the overstepping of a line and the failure to reach it-both transgression and shortcoming. Sin is a beast crouching at the door. In sin,people attack or evade or neglect their divine calling.These and other images suggest deviance:even when it is familiar,sin is never normal.Sin is disruption of created harmony and then resistance to divine restoration of that harmony. Above all,sin disrupts and resists the vital human relation to God,and it does all this disrupting and resisting in a number of intertwined ways.(pg.5)

Sex Ed Based on Lies Is Child Abuse
by Marcia Segelstein
Despite the fact that the work of Dr. Alfred Kinsey has been debunked and discredited—largely thanks to the efforts of Dr. Judith Reisman—the world hums along seemingly oblivious to the influence his fraudulent research continues to exert.
Dr. Miriam Grossman, in her book, You’re Teaching My Child What? A Physician Exposes the Lies of Sex Education and How They Harm Your Child, makes clear that we are paying a heavy price for our inattention and complacency.
Alfred Kinsey’s academic training was in the classification of insects. But he turned his personal obsession with sex into his field of study. As Judith Reisman and Kinsey’s biographer, James Jones, have concluded, Kinsey was a deeply disturbed man. Speaking as a psychiatrist, Dr. Grossman elaborates: “If Kinsey was alive today, and under my care, he’d be on high doses of medications. I would hospitalize him on a locked psychiatric unit because of the risk to his health from his compulsive sexual masochism.” From an early age, Kinsey was aroused by sexual humiliation and pain. At the end of his life, Grossman writes, “he intentionally inflicted trauma to his genitals, needed to be hospitalized, and required months to recover.”
Among many other things, his “research” included filming sexual encounters with his wife and among his staff. We now know that many of his findings were based on interviews with convicted pedophiles and sex offenders. He conducted his so-called research by “befriending male prostitutes, transvestites, sadists, and masochists,” Grossman writes. He concluded, among other things, that most Americans, including average folks, took part in traditionally forbidden sexual activities, and that heterosexuality is a result of “social pressures.” At the time, the late 1950s and early 1960s, his books were bestsellers, lapped up by a gullible public and the media, which ignored criticism from highly respected sources.

Think about this – Thousands of children have been taught junk sex education information based on the research of a discredited,deviant – Alfred Kinsey.SIECUS,Planned Parenthood,and a host of other groups have been indoctrinating kids for years. The radicals have thrown out God and implemented their relativistic ethics, This has led to terrible emotional and physical consequences. As Miriam Grossman,M.D. points out in her book,You’re Teaching My Children What ?A Physician Exposes the Lies of Sex Education and How They Harm Your Child,”…genital bacteria and viruses infect another young person every 3.5 seconds.” There is an epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases among the young, and too many shattered lives to count.Many sex educators mock the truths of God and revel in their rebellion and sexual “freedom”. They are encompassed by the cords of sin,and are separated from their Maker. Worse than their personal bondage is their role in leading young ones astray.
Mark 9:42 “But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea.”
