Broken Moral Frameworks
These are the two most common ethical frameworks in the 21st Century Christian Church.
Neither one provides clear guidance toward what a healthy sexual expression looks like or HOW to cultivate it.
Don't Judge my Choices!
Don't Do it 'til You're Married!
Fear of Judgement for asking questions or sharing experiences - especially when there is uncertainty
Performance mindset and failure to measure up to what we think others expect (or what we expect)
Repression often leads to violence by people who feel powerless to create the experience they desire
Ignorance is the enemy of intimacy creating isolation from the self, from others, and even from God
Know a Tree by its Fruit

About Dr Kevin Jenson
Philosopher of Ethics
I have been through a personal wrestle with everyone of the "cultural issues" affecting my generation. Gender identity, sexual orientation, pornography, purity culture, consent culture, the meaning of marriage.
Walking closely with God in prayer, Bible study, and conversations within the Christian, academic, and sex education communities.
My work builds off a model of education found in the Proverbs and outlined in an unpublished manuscript "Truth and Love".
My educational approach can be seen at www.humancenteredlearning.com
For those interested in my PhD research, it showed the importance of community in shaping identity and enabling personal transformation. [future link to dissertation].

Think of it like confession without penance, and replacing the shame and guilt with freedom!
