Do You Object to Purity?

What in the World?!

People object to the idea of purity.

Objecting to purity is the main reason people reject the Bible and declare it irrelevant.

Why?

They don’t want to be pure.

They want to do what they want.

And This Matters Because…?

A lack of purity in those around us causes many of our problems.

Failures in the realm of purity cause the following:

  1. STDs and AIDS
  2. Prostitution
  3. Divorce
  4. Rape, often in conjunction with murder
  5. Kidnapping
  6. Child slavery
  7. Pornography
  8. et plus

Look at Ms Smiley and shudder. (Okay, well, don’t…)

Can You Allow God an Opinion?

God wants what is best for us and what will give us the greatest fulfillment in life. Therefore, the Bible provides strong teaching against sex outside marriage, and marriage being between a man and woman.

Where at one time (a brief time as history goes), having sexual relations outside of marriage (impurity) was considered liberating, current studies show that it:

  1. damages one’s ability to trust
  2. wounds future relationships
  3. destroys one’s respect for self
  4. diminishes the ability to make right decisions
  5. lowers one’s respect for health
  6. points to the end of a culture.

So God is Fun?

The Bible is relevant concerning the building of a strong, supportive, fulfilling, family life–building fun.

Fun, good childhood memories, not tragic memories.

The Bible is relevant for entering into the most important human relationship of choice, a lifelong spouse, with the ability to commit fully, and much more deeply than you have ever committed to another person in your life.

Fun, good relationships, not guilt-bound relationships.

Loyalty.

Prosperity.

Health.

Joy.

Purity before and during marriage is now known to be a crucial part of that.

And it’s something many will miss out on because they deemed the Bible irrelevant to themselves.

So, Why Haven’t We Heard of This Research?

    The attack on purity and marriage is satanic from start to finish. I’m afraid the sheeple are largely oblivious to just how insidiously the dark side has moved into even our conservative churches. I just did a post on this very subject, and our readers did not receive it very well because it was so “negative and unpleasant.” Be that as it may, that does not negate the fact that it is reality.

    This is a great post, Katharine.

      Thanks so much for this comment, Sage! Yes, it has crept into the churches, as always. I was just reading in 1 Timothy 1, today, about how already at that point in time, folks were messing things up.
      Still are.

Comment! Because we want to know what you think!
