Episode 36: My teenager has crossed some sexual boundaries with a boyfriend/girlfriend – what should I do?

Episode highlights:

  • Observe the biblical principle of radical amputation and end the relationship. Matt 5:27-30; 2 Tim 2:22
  • Shepherd them through why ending the relationship is necessary.
  • Put the gospel in front of them. Assure them that because of the cross, God forgives sin.  However, as a loving Father, God still allows us to feel the temporal consequences of our sin. Heb 12:3-11
  • Explain that ending the relationship is not primarily about punishing them but about protecting them from further sin and from making shipwreck of their faith. 1 Tim 1:18-19
