Sexual Brokenness

ON THIS PAGE


This ever updated page pulls together our most recent (and archival) library of content of Scripture, articles, podcasts, and videos that help bring hope to places of sexual brokenness and sin.

We will share God’s heart for our brokenness, His original design for integrity, along with next steps to help  for the life-long journey toward Sexual Integrity.

Below you will find excerpts that speak directly to our sexual brokenness and the experiences and traumas we hope to turn from. No matter your struggle, Jesus declares that in Him we man have peace, because He has overcome the world (John 16:33 NIV).

At the end of this page, you’ll find a list of books, videos, and other content we have on Sexual Brokenness.

What’s Sexual INtegrity?

When it comes to sex, most Christians have been taught the right actions but few have been taught to align their thoughts and desires with those actions. Even more, the primary lesson of God’s beautiful design for sexuality is almost never included.

This teaching begins during childhood. What was the sex talk like for you? What’s Sexual Integrity?

Were you inspired by the beauty of God, his lavish love of pleasure, his desire to create new life through us? Were you even taught that sex was God’s design and idea in the first place?

Or were you just told how babies are made and to avoid sex until marriage? Perhaps you didn’t even have a sex talk with your parents at all.

The point is that very few are given God’s vision for sex, let alone how to become men and women who think, desire, and act sexually according to God’s design.

Without vision the people perish (Proverbs 29:18).

Discover What’s Broken

All of us are broken sexually. This may be obvious for some readers, but this is true of everyone. Sadly, sin impacts us all, including our sexuality and the other deep aspects of our lives.

We need to embrace this reality rather than fall into the trap of comparing our insides with others’ outsides. Without acknowledgement of our common heritage of sexual brokenness, shame kicks up a gear. 

Shame is a key factor for almost all sexual brokenness, but if we think we are alone, even more. Shame says that the core of our person hood is uniquely bad and unredeemable.

Shame is completely contrary to the reality of who we are in Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:16, Galatians 2:20).

Even more, shame keeps us stuck in our sexual behaviors. With guilt, we can confess and turn from what we’ve done. With shame, on the other hand, we’re at war with ourselves. In fact, shame is the most consistent driver toward sexual sin, period.

Shame and Stones

You would think me bitter if I told you I would gladly trade places with him, the man. Although they’d stormed in on both of us, it was me they took, me they blamed, while he cowered in the corner next to my bed.

But I am not bitter. I pray for him, and his wife, his children, and now his grandchildren, too. He has all and yet, I’m afraid, nothing. I would trade him places that he could have the life I have because of that day.

When the religious leaders took me, they grabbed me by my wrists and hair and pulled me into the alleyway and out into the sunlight. They bent to pick up stones along the way as we wound through the streets. Through dust and tears, I could see mothers covering the eyes of their children, men rushing toward me to yell and spit, and others standing aside, looking away.

When the leaders threw me down at last, I was not outside the city as I’d expected. I was in the temple courtyard. A rabbi sat just a few feet in front of me. I was the guilty one, but the way they questioned him, I couldn’t help feel we were both on trial.
