Life Library — Sexuality
It seems to be the young women who are teaching the young men to look beyond the moment to the lifetime commitment called marriage where learning to make love replaces “having sex.” This trend, fed by the grace of God, may blossom into more than my generation ever dreamed possible.
The Christian’s Struggle with Sexual Temptation

Wages for Sin
Marriage benefits are starting to go to those who are “shacking up.”
Way Out of the Closet
Do gays feel accepted enough to depict their dark interests on TV?
