The following message, first preached by Billy Graham more than 60 years ago, is so fitting that it could have been written yesterday. Let it change yours. From the very beginning, God has given us moral laws governing the subject of sex that are absolute and unchangeable.
For six weeks, I and about 30 college students got together for 75 minutes twice a week to talk about sex.

Only three out of thirty college students had ever had a serious conversation with their parents about sex.
Does the Bible teach that sex before marriage is a sin? This is because we live in a world of tweets and quick soundbites where people rarely have enough time for context.

Surprising to many, God is quite concerned about our sexuality and wants us to have the best sex possible. And yes, He does know what each of us has been doing.

It tends to be self-centered, greedy, and far more depictive of lust than love in the world.
