Health and Sexuality

God's Plan

For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from unchastity; that each one of you know how to take a wife for himself in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like heathen who do not know God.

1 Thessalonians 4.3-5

The body is not meant for immorality, but for the Lord... Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I therefore take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never! Do you not know that he who joins himself a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, “The two shall become one flesh.” But he who is united to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. Shun immorality. Every other sin which a man commits is outside the body; but the immoral man sins against his own body. Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God? You are not your own; you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

1 Corinthians 6.13-20

Free sex is like a poisonous snake. Its head is like a man’s sexual organ and its open mouth is like a woman’s sexual organ. One bite from this poisonous snake can spread HIV/AIDS. One bite forever cuts down the ideal world... How can people conquer this snake, employing only their conscience? Coming to their aid, the religions of the world have always taught how to subdue the flesh. They have always commanded, “Do not drink, smoke or engage in free sex!”

Moms For Liberty

Britney Bouldin is the youngest of four children. Britney always loved America.  Growing up, her parents and grandparents made sure to teach her about the people who sacrificed everything to give America her freedom.  Britney has a master’s degree in speech pathology and has helped people young and old to improve their communication abilities.  Once she started having children, she switched to part-time so she could stay at home with her three children asmuch as possible.  With the direction that our country is headed, she decided to take action and started a Moms For Liberty chapter in Union County,NC.  This chapter quickly became a force of change giving parents a voice in local and state politics. After two years as chapter chair, Britney accepted a job with the National Moms for Liberty organization as the chapter support specialist.  She is still active in her local chapter and serves as the legislative liaison on the North Carolina Moms For Liberty LegislativeCommittee. Most days you can find Britney, working at her keyboard fighting for parental rights, on the phone with chapter chairs from all across the country, listening to a podcast at 2x speed, sitting in carpool lines, cooking dinner, or volunteering with youth at her church.  She is passionate about challenging Christians to stop retreating from the ills of society and start engaging with it civically.

Amos' approach is a bit different than most. He shares his story and intertwines the importance of writing down your goal, building relationships, overcoming fear, and being persistent. He will make you cry, laugh, and look deep within yourself to begin your own personal journey to success. Whether you want general motivation or have issues with depression/suicide, bullying, drug and alcohol abuse, and many other issues, Amos knows that these are only symptoms of a larger problem and will spend time with you digging into the real problem so that the symptoms disappear. After failing the 7th grade, dealing with ADHD and dyslexia, and being told his entire life he could not read or write, he will share that there is hope for everyone. Amos' story is for all who have any major dream or goal in their life and need the right formula and inspiration to get it.

The Gender Agenda

“The Gender Agenda” is a documentary that has been produced by Family Watch International. It has key messages from individuals who have lived as transgender who were able to resolve their gender dysphoria and embrace their biological sex. It also includes testimony from doctors and psychologists who share the science and medical facts related to gender identity issues, including the physical harms that emanate from failed attempts to “transition” to the opposite sex. They show that this is medically impossible.

Combating Pornography

In this powerful documentary from Family Watch International (, you will learn from experts—as well as the testimonies from individuals whose lives have been negatively impacted by pornography—about the addictive nature of porn, its impact on the brain, and how pornography viewing can lead to family breakdown, prostitution, sex trafficking and other crimes against women and children. While the film exposes pornography as a devastating and debilitating addiction, it concludes with a message of hope as it shares how former addicts and their families find healing through therapy and the support of family members.

Sex Trafficking:

CONTRALAND – Shocking Documentary about Child Sex Traffickers and Ongoing Efforts to Stop Them!

Child sex trafficking is the fastest-growing criminal enterprise on earth. It generates an estimated $38 Billion dollar each year in the U.S. Blackmail involving pedophilia is at the root of much of America’s political corruption. 30,000 victims of sex trafficking die each year from abuse, disease, and neglect, some as young as six years old.  Over 71% of trafficked children show suicidal tendencies. Sex traffickers condition their male and female victims with starvation, rape, gang rape, physical abuse, beating, confinement, forced drug use, and shame. No matter what town you live in, it’s likely this is going on in your community.

Since their founding in 2007, they have raised nearly half-a-billion dollars for the Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) field in the aim of realizing this goal.In addition, they are advocates for parents and communities. They strongly believe that they should have the choice to select Sexual Risk Avoidance for their children.
