Sexuality and Singles - Part 1

Dr. James Dobson
Elisabeth Elliot
On today’s edition of Family Talk, the late Elisabeth Elliot, author of Passion and Purity, claims that too many self-professing Christian singles are having premarital sex. While they profess Jesus to be their Savior, they have rejected the authority of His Lordship. Despite the fact that First Corinthians 6:18 says, "Flee sexual immorality," some Christian singles feel it's optional whether they obey or not. Elliot insists that if you want to be Christ's disciple, then you must give up your rights, take up your cross, and follow Him.

Elisabeth Elliot

Elisabeth Elliot (1926-2015) was the wife of Jim Elliot, a missionary who was martyred while ministering to an unreached group of people in the Amazonian jungle of Ecuador. After her husband’s death, Elisabeth felt God calling her to minister to the very tribe who had killed him. She went on to become a well-known speaker and author of over 20 books, including Passion and Purity, Let Me Be a Woman, and Shadow of the Almighty. For 13 years, she hosted her own radio program called "Gateway to Joy." Elisabeth passed away at the age of 88 and is survived by her third husband, Lars Gren, her daughter, Valarie Elliot Shephard, and many grandchildren.
