Even grandma had premarital sex

Even grandma had premarital sex, survey finds

This sad news. Most people in America have sex before they are married. With these stats so high, it would be hard to imagine that these numbers do not include people who consider themselves Christian. This is sad news indeed.

God is seriously concerned about holiness. Sexual purity is one of the most important aspects in our call to holiness:

I Thessalonians 4:1-5 – “Finally then, brethren, we request and exhort you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received from us instruction as to how you ought to walk and please God (just as you actually do walk), that you excel still more. For you know what commandments we gave you by the authority of the Lord Jesus. For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that is, that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in lustful passion, like the Gentiles who do not know God.”

It is God’s desire for His people to be holy. In fact, those who are holy, are His people. He is serious about holiness and His people being set apart, separate from the world and it’s ways.

For those of you who have had sex before marriage, there is forgiveness through Christ through repentance and faith. For those unmarried who have not had sex, hold fast to your faith and God will help you escape temptation. If you are currently caught in this sin, God can provide a way for you to escape these temptations. Seek the LORD’s help on this matter. Also, you might consider confessing your faults to another, for guidance and support.

For people who are not convinced that sex before and outside of marriage is acceptable, they are not sharing God’s opinion.

I Thessalonians 4:7-8 – “For God has not called us for the purpose of impurity, but in sanctification. So, he who rejects this is not rejecting man but the God who gives His Holy Spirit to you.”

America is full of immorality and fornication. Lust permeates our culture and is the driving force behind marketing, entertainment, and fashion. The world will put more and more pressure on the church, especially youth, to partake in its lusts. It will be disguised as something that “everyone is doing” or an action that there is “nothing wrong with doing that.” In light of this, the church must fight hard against the schemes of the god of this age by drawing near to the LORD and holding fast to the words of Christ. As the people of God and Christ, we must take our direction from our leader and Lord.

After reading these stats, I was saddened at the state of the world. This is very sad news.

How do you think God feels? Why is sexual purity important to God? Are these views too “narrow-minded?”

    “narrow-minded”???
    Matthew 7:12-14
    13″Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it.
    14″For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.
    Great points!!!
