Sex. Historically, it’s a topic the church has struggled to address. And with sexual mores changing like never before, the way we define “sexual purity” is rapidly becoming a highly sensitive and polarizing subject. Zeroing in specifically on the subject of premarital sex, our feature documentary ventures into uncharted territory for the church. Never before have we fully explored the physical, emotional, and spiritual impact of premarital sex, and the societal outcomes for a culture that has fully embraced it. Is “waiting for marriage” simply an outdated ideal, or is it an eternal spiritual principle rooted in God’s design for humanity?
Our curriculum for church leaders and young adults isn’t just your average purity study. Working hand in hand with Moral Revolution to create revolutionary content, we’ll forever change the way the church approaches these topics.
