Parenting_for_Purity

Parenting for Purity

Tom Houck

Our culture is in the midst of a divorce epidemic that has lasted for more than three decades. The grievous tragedy is, the Christian community is no different than the world: half of all marriages end in divorce. Parents today must be acutely aware of this danger to their children, and know how to protect their children from that danger.

Why these serious and astonishing percentages? The most common reason there is so much failure in marriage is because of the unbiblical relationships people engage in prior to marriage. Harmful beliefs concerning male/female relationships are being taught to our children at early ages. Children are being programmed to travel down a lifelong road of immorality and, in many cases, divorce. Therefore, parents must begin to counteract these teachings by discipling the truth about these matters at an early age. Parents can use their influence to save save their children from broken hearts, emotional scarring, and divorce that often arises from worldly relationships.

Being_Faithful_to_Future_Spouse

Being Faithful to Your Future Spouse

Tom Houck

Most of the boyfriend/girlfriend relationships we see today do not match the type of relationship needed to translate into a successful marriage. Those relationships are usually not created for the right purpose, nor do they contain the right preparation or practice. In fact, the way that dating is commonly conducted today is divorce practice. A major contradiction found in those relationships is faithfulness.

Faithfulness is the lifetime commitment to remain emotionally and physically devoted to only one person and is one of the requirements of marriage that should be practiced prior to entering into it. A person should be faithful to their future souse both before and after they meet their spouse.

passionate parenting

Passionate Parenting

Cary Schmidt

I am including this book in the purity section because it contains one chapter on guiding our kids through infatuation, emotions, and other flammable things; and another chapter on talking to your teen about sex and purity.  These two chapters are EXCELLENT, and have a wealth of practical, helpful ideas relating to dealing with these topics with your teens.)

Parenting is work.  Parenting is tough.  And, contrary to popular expectations, it gets harder as kids get older.

Passionate Parenting is about pursuing the heart of your teenager (and child) and helping that heart fall in love with the heart of God.  It all begins with examining your own heart as a parent.  It begins with being passionate about your own relationship with Jesus Christ and His will for your life.

Then it overflows into a passionate, heart-focused, parent-teen relationship that is built on authenticity, transparency, laughter, godliness, and growth.

The teen years are the best years of parenting.  But for many families, they are the worst.  (Often because they neglected following many of these ideas when the kids were young!)  For many they are nothing more than years of distance, brokenness, hurt, and regret.  This doesn’t have to be your family!

If you’re up for the challenge of becoming a passionate parent – if you long to enjoy the teen years, and you’re ready for some tough but rewarding work – then dive in!  This book will equip you for the journey.

Seven Bible Truths Violated by Christian Dating

Dr. S. M. Davis

Bible-believing Churches for years have warned about worldly dating because of the danger of moral impurity. But 1 Thess. 4 is clear that it is possible to defraud a brother or sister, not only physically, but emotionally as well! Christian families, to be safe, must erect fences that will protect against defrauding in both areas. Christian dating violates:

The command to be a “one-woman man” or a one-man woman.

The principle of security in relationships.

The command to treat others like brothers or sisters.

The command to “not go beyond and defraud”.

The principle of going to sleep & waiting on God .

The principle of being ready to marry when you begin to seek your bride.

The command to “walk by faith, not by sight”.

brideprice

Timeless Bible Teachings about the Bride Price

Dr. S.M. Davis

The Bride price may be a material gift, but is primarily the self-sacrifice of the young man. The price a man pays to get his bride, like the price Jesus paid, is the most important price he’ll ever pay. Paying this price accomplishes several things for both the young man, his betrothed, and their families. His self-sacrifice, instead of self-indulgence, gives to his bride-to-be a feeling of great worth.

Preparing Your Children for Courtship and Marriage From Toddlers to Teens

Reb Bradley

With so many young people corrupting themselves with sexual impurity, it is obvious that the Church’s present views on sex and dating warrant scrutiny! Pastor Reb Bradley is convinced it is time for God’s people to reexamine what the Bible teaches about dating, courtship and sexual purity. In this series of messages, he exposes how the Church has lost the Biblical view of chastity and courtship and has “Christianized” worldly concepts of dating. If you, as a parent, are ready to take drastic Biblical measures.
