Hot Topics... Chastity
Everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
Matthew 5:28 (NASB)
Abstain from sexual immorality.
1 Thessalonians 4:3 (NASB)
Flee immorality.
1 Corinthians 6:18 (NASB)
Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity...
Colossians 3:5 (NASB)
Chastity doesn't sound very modern, and not many people talk about it. So how can it be called a hot topic? Maybe because it's so unthinkable.

Judging by today's media and stars, chastity is yesterday's prudishness. They imply it's rulish and repressive: the opposite of passionate freedom--like a yoke to be cut and thrown away.

But casual sex brings harder yokes, and not one of them is the yoke of Christ.

What a sad con the enemy has played. He has killed our faith in fidelity. He has robbed our children of their childhood. He has destroyed our unwanted babies.

Please consider: Many Christians believe chastity is an Old Testament Rule. Not true. Christ and His disciples warned us about sexual immorality throughout the Gospels and the Epistles.

Another note: In studying the lives of those who think sex is a dating game, you will find suffering, regret and scars.

We don't judge, because that's God dominion, but we can know and example better.

"I labored, yet not I. By the grace of God, I am what I am, and do what I do' (paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 15:10). I love God's Word. As a late-in-life committed Christian with no Bible training prior to age 51, some people wonder how I'm qualified to write devotions. I wonder that, too. But God loves children and fools for Him. I am both. Ghost Writer? God.
