While most sexuality information and education focuses on “sex” or sexual expression as a physical act, both scripture and science paint a much bigger picture of sexuality. Our primary focus at The Legacy Institute is to create educational materials and messaging that portray the powerful truth about sexuality with broader brush strokes, to encourage people of all ages to live in agreement with their male or female design. This means:
- From a scriptural perspective, we reveal the essential picture of our sexuality: our creator’s gift of life to us, in our “maleness” and “femaleness,” is the intentional mechanism by which we are to be fruitful, loving, life-giving beings who reflect God’s image in our wholeness.
- From a scientific perspective, we uncover the essential truth of our sexuality: empirical data from both hard and soft sciences in fields as diverse as biology, neurology, psychology, reproductive health, sociology and anthropology provide “material” support for the theory behind the scriptural model for sexual relationships.
- From a practical perspective, we bring to light the essential purpose for our sexuality: when we live with sexual integrity, the fruit of everyday relationships is evident in the formation of strong marriages, healthy families and truly progressive communities, all of which help to re-adjust the culture in a positive way.
Presented together, these perspectives offer a more inspiring vision of sexuality and included in all our materials and messaging is the truth delivered with grace that God forgives each of us for choices we have made, and offers healing for wounds we may have experienced. It is never too late to be whole, and choose to live in agreement with our divine design!
