Daddy Dobson-approved plan to curb sexual urges in teens

At Daddy Dobson’s site, author Joe White has some must-read advice for parents of horny Christian teenagers. Joe he runs the Kanakuk-Kanakomo Kamps (KKK, eh?) in Missouri — “Character development with Christian focus” — and is an expert on how to stay chaste.

Before you laugh, I would think that a guy running a Christian sleepaway camp stays quite busy prying hormone-charged young people off of one another. There are plenty of humping opportunities. How successful he is at preventing fornication is another matter altogether.

This article, to say the least, is entertaining.

Guys, God has designed your bod and brain with intense care. He knows your sex life is the most intricately connected mental, physical and spiritual part of your entire being—that it has incredible potential for intimacy and fulfillment, but equal potential for absolute disaster (for example, AIDS or abortion).

Since sex is so powerful, the Bible gives clear directions and limits for its use. In essence, follow God’s architectural blueprint for your sex life and you’ll build a lifetime of happiness with your future bride.

In the passage above, notice God clearly called it “the marriage bed”—not the motel one-night stand, the fraternity formal after-party, the we’re-in-love-now Saturday night, or even the engagement party. No, this is way too special for anything less than a bonded by holy marriage for life relationship.

Check out another passage: “Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body” (1 Corinthians 6:18).

When God says that sexual sin is not only sin against Him, but also against your bod, He couldn’t give a more descriptive warning. But our blatant selfishness in this area continues to create the same painful scenario day after day. Most of the pain mail I receive involves another gutted victim of sexual sin. As one pregnant and abandoned 15-year-old girl said, “I feel like I had 200 knives go through me.”

When God says “flee,” He means “run for your lives,” as my friend Josh McDowell puts it. If the movie gets lusty, walk out. If the “how are you” hug borders on sensual, quickly exit. If the kiss leads your thoughts further, it’s time to go home. If a lonely apartment is available, stay a million miles away. If she continues to proposition you, break up. When you think of this great Bible verse, just say a little phrase to yourself: “Run, baby, run.”
