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)
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.
