"Sex and violence" is a hot-button phrase that if often used without thinking. But what do sex and violence really have to do with one another? Christians should be untangling the connection between them, but instead we seem to be contributing to the confusion.
Some Christians throw around the word "sin" fairly unthinkingly, while others have become rather embarrassed by it. To talk about "sin" clearly and justly, we need to address the confusion of both society and churches around two major issues - sex and violence.
If children are traumatised by media images of violence, the answer is not censorship says Colin Morris, but deeper questions about the networks of wrong doing we are part of and the question of whether and how redemption is possible.
