Elevating Chastity

Posted by Adam Graham on April 3, 2007

LaShawn Barber hits the nail on the head:

The reasons for abstaining from sex until marriage are larger than avoiding pregnancy or disease. Abstinence should be elevated above mere self-control and delayed gratification. In order for chastity to be meaningful, one has to believe that he/she is being obedient to God, that the sexual act itself has a spiritual purpose ordained by God and intended for two people united in marriage.

I’ll have to be honest, I never quite thought of it that way.
