Freedom, Sexual Ethics, and the Imago Dei with Jen Oshman

by | Mar 21, 2022 | Equipping You in Grace, Featured

On today’s Equipping You in Grace show, Dave and Jen Oshman discuss freedom, sexual ethics, purity culture, and her new book, Cultural Counterfeits: Confronting 5 Empty Promises of Our Age and How We Were Made for So Much More (Crossway, 2022).

What you’ll hear in this episode

  • How burnout is an age-old problem of idolatry.
  • How the sexual revolution made sex central and morphed it from protecting the Imago Dei to personal pleasure.
  • How Scripture’s teaching on freedom is a better word than our culture’s.
  • The right way to live in a culture obsessed with our bodies.
  • How we don’t value sex enough.
  • Concerns about the current abortion discussion and why.
  • Identity in Christ and sexual ethics.
  • Concerns about the purity movement.
  • Peace and our desire for home.
