Brain, World and the Word of God with Christian Sexologist Patricia Weerakoon

Culture, social media and your friends challenge you to live a life of personal self-focussed gratification. Whether it be sex, or any other part of your life: it is your right, you are told. It is your life and your body: You choose what you like to do; even to be. Is this true? Is there no moral or spiritual truth? What about Science? Does it contradict the Bible? Are we just a bundle of hormones?

Patricia explores recent research on sexual desire (eros), attraction (love) and long-term attachment (bonding) and current cultural mores on sex. She provides a Christ focussed Biblical model of healthy sexuality and marriage to help interrogate and challenge both science and culture in the domain of desire, love and relationships.
