media Stainless
Type: Video Illustration
Shared By: James Grocho (Grochowalski) on September 14, 2016
Summary: Beacon Light shares a spoken word piece about sexual abuse, relationships, sex, porn, and other life struggles from a Christian perspective. This piece was written for an event called Stainless to promote following Christ and living in sexual purity. According to the Bible, God intended for sex to be only for heterosexual couples in a marriage relationship. Anything outside of that is contrary to His design (this includes heterosexual relationships outside of wedlock). We must strive to live in obedience to Him if we call ourselves Christians. Love, grace, and peace to all who call on the name of Jesus. beaconlightmusic.com
