Our goal is to offer young people advice on questions about gender, the body, emotions, sex, marriage and relationships from a biblical Christian viewpoint.
We offer parents, teachers and youth leaders expertise and resources to assist them as they advise young people.
We have a positive, value-based view of sex and relationships. No question is inappropriate, and no topic is taboo.
We have a basic trust in the Bible as God’s Word, and in the truth in the Bible’s holistic account of creation, the fall of man, salvation and redemption.
Our advice is based on classical Christian sexual ethics, Christian values and a biblical view of mankind. With this in mind, we believe that lifelong marriage between one man and one woman is the only framework for a sexual relationship, and that God has created mankind as male and female.
We believe that this view of mankind protects every individual’s sexual integrity and needs in the best way.
boyandgirl.info builds on the Cape Town Commitment of the Lausanne Movement, which states the following on this topic:
God’s design in creation is that marriage is constituted by the committed, faithful relationship between one man and one woman, in which they become one flesh in a new social unity that is distinct from their birth families, and that sexual intercourse as the expression of that ‘one flesh’ is to be enjoyed exclusively within the bond of marriage. This loving sexual union within marriage, in which ‘two become one’, reflects both Christ’s relationship with the Church and also the unity of Jew and Gentile in the new humanity.
This is a website which has been in development in Norway since 2013. The questions are sent to us by Norwegian teenagers and young adults and are influenced by Norwegian culture and the realities of life in Norway.
