We live in a sex-saturated society. Remaining morally pure is a battle for men and women. Elisabeth Elliot wrote, in the preface of her classic book Passion and Purity: “The love life of a Christian is a crucial battleground. There, if nowhere else, it will be determined as to who is Lord: the world, the self and the devil, or the Lord Christ.”1
We want to help you win that battle, with the right weapons and armour at your disposal. Our resources on purity will serve as an encouragement to anyone who wants to pursue a morally pure life. And for those who have regrets, you'll also find grace, forgiveness, and some suggested tools to help you maintain purity in an impure world.

And when this stunningly gorgeous gal takes your arm and pulls you down the aisle, the minister talks but you don't hear him. You're too busy staring daggers at the boy you've been trying to keep on curfew for months.
