Rethink RSE: promoting a Biblical vision of relationships and sexuality

Oct 25, 2020 by

from Christian Concern: With the new academic year well under way, many are asking what resources are available that underpin Biblical teaching on relationship and sexuality. Because in the midst of the chaos and uncertainty that surrounds us, one thing remains certain: we must protect and promote a Biblical vision of relationships and sexuality in our schools and in our homes.   When it comes to RSE, schools are at risk of becoming places of confusion rather than clarity.

Should the State Teach Sex Education & “Gender Identity” or Are These Issues For Parents Alone?

Oct 11, 2020 by

from The New Culture Forum Channel: Overshadowed by Covid-19 and BLM, another issue has been causing great concern in many quarters for some time: sex education.
