Why Are Kids Sexting?

The leading pundits tell us not to worry, just chill. The pundits are wrong.
Posted Nov 17, 2015
"Tredyffrin-Easttown Middle School and Conestoga High School are not far from my daughter’s school in Rosemont, in the Main Line suburbs west of Philadelphia. Four students from T-E Middle and Conestoga High School were recently arrested and charged with distributing pornography via cell phone (link is external). The photos were of one of their classmates, a girl. The accused are 11 to 15 years of age; the girl is 13. "

"I’m not asking you to accept the Bible as authoritative, but there’s a profound line in the Song of Songs, the world’s first great love poem, which I think provides some insight here. Three separate times in Song of Songs, the female protagonist says: “I command you, daughters of Jerusalem, Do not arouse or awaken love before its time” (Song of Songs 2:7, 3:5, and 8:4). Clearly she understands that it is possible to arouse love before its time; that’s why she commands you not to do so. But for many American kids today, the race is on to arouse love at the earliest possible moment, as soon as the plumbing works."

Christ wrote 66 books on behavior therapy by proxy.
The Bible is the book that contains this template for purpose and values (specifically the Sermon on the Mount with 8 Beatitudes). Empower yourself and choose to allow the philosophical values and principles of Jesus Christ to embrace your mind and change the very essence of your life-forever.

"I am a Surrendered Believer in Jesus Christ with Free Will and I CHOSE Surrender (Intelligent Delegation) in my victory over, “Recreational Chemical Abuse, my weekend, "False Idols."
"I chose DIRECT health assertive Christ Driven Behavior (CDB) instead of DISPLACED behavior in order to regain control over feeling helpless, powerless, trapped and lacking control. I changed my, "Thinking," and God changed my life."

There is no reason why anyone with any hurt, habit, or hang up cannot be helped. The Person-God partnership simply needs to be more powerful than any hurt, habit or hangup.

Behind everything you do is a THOUGHT.

Every BEHAVIOR is motivated by a BELIEF.

Every ACTION is prompted by an ATTITUDE.


With respect to behavior, life is about, emotions, beliefs, thinking and control.

"A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."Proverbs 29:11 (Displaced Behaviors)

"Do not be conformed by this world but instead by the renewing of your mind." Romans 12:2 (Direct Behavior)

When you think and empower yourself and surrender control to God, when you Intelligently Delegate Control to God (2 Corinthians 12:9-10),

God returns that control to you with a, “Helper," the Holy Spirit, (John 14:16) a form of Reciprocal Innervation.

You regain control: "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

No longer are you subject to corrupted displaced thinking but instead are transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2).

This is where science and scripture intertwine, where Christ Driven Behavior brings, values, control, cause, character and purpose driven behavior, the fruits of the spirit Galatians 5:22-23 .

“If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17.


Proverbs 29:11 "A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."

Romans 12:2: Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

2 Corinthians 12-9:“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

John 14:16: "He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—"

Philippians 2:13: "for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure."

Galatians 5:22-23 "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Ephesians 4:22-23 "...put away the old person you used to be. Have nothing to do with your old sinful life. It was sinful because of being fooled into following bad desires. Let your minds and hearts be made new."

Life is about finding Purpose. When you have a, "Global Purpose," in life, healthy direct assertive thinking and behavior follow.

Change your thinking, change your life!
