[Bonus Podcast] Reflections on Purity Culture

Purity Culture has been a significant topic of cultural conversation since the announcement that Joshua Harris, author of I Kissed Dating Goodbye, is getting a divorce and leaving “conventional” Christianity. Sean and Scott offer some historical and ethical reflections on how the church has taught sexual purity. They discuss both positive and negative elements of purity culture and offer some thoughts on what a biblical sexual ethic should look like moving forward.
