Answering The Miley Cyrus Generation

Miley Cyrus is an icon of a soul that is a wasteland and she’s taking others down with her. The Dave Ryan Show reports that,

“Miley Cyrus’ controversial performance at the MTV Video Music Awards is now the most-tweeted moment of the year. Twitter announced on Monday that Miley and her provocative dancing with singer Robin Thicke set a record on the social networking site, garnering 306,000 tweets per minute. Four-point-five million tweets about Miley went out during the award show’s two-hour airtime.”

Her immorality and shamefulness seems to know no end perpetuating the idea that empowerment lies in unrestrained license and self destruction. You and I both know people we need to reach out to who are following her lead on the downward spiral. Just this morning I shared the gospel with a young lady who had never heard the message about godly purity, chastity and the sins of Miley Cyrus. She listened. She and seemed to be convicted. While I gave her the Word I also reached for some trusted resources, which I have listed below.

Here they are and a few more if you need to get your bearings and build a foundation. Use them to reach out to others as a doorway to spreading the gospel. We all have to play our part in affecting cultural morality.  Spread the word about modesty, femininity, and purity to a world that knows no shame and may have never heard a message otherwise.

The authors, editors, speakers and filmmakers have spent countless hours  and their own financial resources putting together these trusted tools. Buy them, use them, give them away.

Want to know what these authors, editors and filmmakers have to say about purity, chastity, sobriety, femininity, marriage and the like?

Join LAF on twitter  for a #purity campaign as we treat @mileycyrus followers, adding many wonderful quotes from some of the following books. Retweet to your friends and family who need a vision of godly maidenhood. Add your own favorite quotes that inspire you to Christ-likeness. We want to know what Christ has done for you as a contrast the faulty idea that complete license is liberating. Tweet us your testimony @lafbw. Hope to see you there.

(I probably don’t have to say this but or your soul’s sake, skip visiting Miley’s numerous twitter pages.) Continue reading “Answering The Miley Cyrus Generation”

Modesty Helps Foster Friendship in Women

The article Jennie posted a few days ago, “Modesty Helps Women Be Friends”, makes some very good points, and inspired the following post:

WARNING: Before I begin, I’d like to make it clear that when I use the word “modesty”, I am neither referring to “pants vs. dresses” nor some sort of Christianized burka. The issue isn’t personal opinions regarding styles of dress. The issue is when, if, and how to confront those who are displaying sexually explicit areas of their bodies (either by uncovering them completely or clearly showcasing them). Please do not misunderstand this post as an invitation to become a “man-made rule maker,” policing other Christians based simply on their style of dress.

The premise of this article is love and it is directed only to Christians. It is not in reference to visitors to your church, people you don’t know, or unbelievers.

So, here is a question inspired by the topic in the article above:

When a young Christian in your life dresses immodestly, do you love her enough to say something to her or do you keep silent, fearing her reaction?

Here is what happened to me years ago… Continue reading “Modesty Helps Foster Friendship in Women”

The Beauty of Chastity

Photo taken moments before my second oldest daughter, Tiffany, was married.

Because of my own sinful past, as well as the fact that sexual sin introduced so many sorrows into my life (even before I was born), I learned early in my Christian walk that purity meant more than simply avoiding sex outside of marriage. Sexual purity, like all virtues, begins in the heart. Continue reading “The Beauty of Chastity”
