What surprises me even more is the comments I read from other Christian friends who are complimenting these images and calling them “beautiful.” So what’s up with this? I know the answer to these questions because I used to be one of those girls.I used to be the girl behind the flip-phone snapping those seductive poses.I was the girl on the roof doing a photo shoot so I could show off the results to my friends.
Sadly, we live in a culture that “trains” our minds to view seductiveness as the norm from a very young age.
Just take a quick walk through the mall and you’ll see poster after poster featuring models striking a sexual pose.
Since the invention of Pinterest, Instagram, and other apps sexualized images are in our faces more than ever before.
As Christian girls, we’re being bombarded by our culture’s message that seductive and sexual poses are cool, hip, and normal.
Taking seductive selfies isn’t raunchy anymore…it’s acceptable and praised.
Since we live in a fallen world it makes sense that our culture praises and encourages girls to act this way.
The question I have for you is this: Why in the world are Christian girls posting seductive selfies??
I’m shocked sometimes when I get on my Instagram and see some of the sensual poses a few of my Christian friends are posting.
When I was in high school Bethany and I decided we wanted to do a really cool photo shoot of ourselves.
