Product description

At the beginning of the 20th century, sex outside of marriage was widely considered a sin, and as such, bad for you. Even if it did feel good, it was still wrong and therefore people tried to avoid it. This prudish environment was just not conducive to success for Satan. And so one day, he must have sat down with his most brilliant demonic marketing team and said, "OK, we need a new spin on sex outside of marriage. Our market share on this has been flat-lined for over 1,200 years! Who's got an idea?" One unassuming little demon piped up and said, "Why don't we just redefine sex outside marriage so people don't think it's a sin anymore?" Brilliant! Satan loved the idea and now that little guy is VP of marketing in Hell. The single-most difficult task in the life of a young person trying to live a Christian life today is maintaining purity until marriage. And next to conversation with God, there is nothing more encouraging than the success stories of people who have gone through the challenge. Beyond the obvious advantages of never having to lose a moment's sleep worrying about unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, saving oneself for one awesome sexual experience on the wedding night has the big payoff of permanently bonding a person to his or her spouse. For the couple that uses their first sexual experience correctly, that "one flesh" thing comes effortlessly - just as God intended. It's as easy, enjoyable and immediate as having sex. This is the big payoff. Resisting sex in our sex-driven society is Christ-like nonconformity born of a desire to bring glory to God in every aspect of your life. It's not born of paternalistic oppression - not in our day in Western civilized countries anyway. We have the freedom and access to sex if we want it. Whereas we should be thankful for all our freedoms, we should also use wisdom and discernment in exercising them. We need to look beyond the moment of pleasure and instant gratification to the consequences of exercising those freedoms. Today, as it always has been, purity is being prudent, not being a prude. Regardless of how feminists and traditionalists may want to use purity as a case in some sociological point, for every single person who is trying to live according to God's will for our lives, purity is a very personal issue, a personal challenge, and when accomplished, a personal victory with personal rewards.
