Sexual Purity and Abstinence

Sexual Purity and Abstinence

The following article was written by Jesse Butler, an 18 year old Christian Teen:

Many people feel uncomfortable when the topic of sexual purity or abstinence comes up mainly due to their own temptations, or past sins. As Christians, we are commanded by God to live a sexually pure life. Now I’m sure that all of you have heard all this before: “Save sex for marriage, blah blah blah…”

But the problem is not knowing what is right. The real struggle is doing what is right and saving sex for the right place and time. (which is marriage) Today;s society is screaming at us to engage in sexual activities in any way, and as often as we would like with whoever we want. So how are we as Christians supposed to stay pure and live up to Gods standards.

Sexual Purity Tips

  1. A good thing that we can to avoid sexual sins is to make sure that we don’t put ourselves in situations where there is temptation. If you are in a dating relationship, and things are getting very serious, then it would be a bad idea to be together alone in a house because it may cause temptation which can lead to sexual sin. Instead go out somewhere where it would be difficult to take things too far.
  2. Try not to engage in activities that may tempt you to sin sexually. There many fun and creative dating ideas that you can choose from that will help you get brainstorming.

Overall, staying pure is a day by day commitment. Remember that God already has that special someone for you, and if you have sex before marriage, then you will be cheating yourself and your future soul mate of untold great sex.

    I think that sexual abstinence is very important. Not only is it good not to sin but if you wait until you are married it is so refreshing and you dont have to think about getting yourself checked if you only have one partner. with time you will start to see what real love is if you find that someone special who doesnt tempt you or rush you keep them because that will be the real deal. =)

    Obviously this is a topic many avoid discussing because of fear of been ridiculed especially if they are/have been victims of premarital sex/sexual immorality.Therefore,folks should be encouraged to speak out for others to learn from their mistakes or use ideas from them in finding a solid foot 2 fighting sexual immorality.

    Hi Everyone!
    I am writing an article for my college newspaper about abstinence. I have some questions for anyone willing to answer..

    Why Wait?
    What are the benefits to abstinence?
    Do you look down on people who choose to have sex before marriage?
    How do you resist temptation?
    Are most of your friends waiting to have sex until marriage, or are you unique?
    Do you feel pressured by your friends/society to have sex?
    Should there be sex education at schools? If so, should it be an abstinence-based program?
    Does the abstinence program really work? Do you think teens will have sex regardless, and the lack of birth control options will contribute to higher STD and pregnancy rates?
    Thanks to all those who answer!
