Chastity, or lack thereof...

Post  0001 on 3/7/2010, 19:25

This has been something that I hadn't really noticed until a day or so ago, when it really sunk in. There are a heck of a lot of young single parents that I know of right now. I mean even just in my small sphere of existence, there are 4, all about the same age as me. What happned to abstinance? To chastitiy? Why is everyone having kids all of a sudden? Mad

Dude, I know exactly where you are coming from!!!! It is SOOOOOOOOOOOO sad to see the many young single parents.. Sad Its like they dont know the consequences.. Although.. They are a good reminder to other people, like me, that if you have sex you could end up as a single mom at 16. There go your dreams of going to college... Of being a kid for the next 2 years. Yepp.. Just say goodbye to all that.
That is what convinces me (that & the whole wait til after you're married thing) to not have sex as a highschooler. It just seems kinda ridiculous as to how many sex crazed people there are in my school.. Its like all they think about. "/

Sounds like it hasn't changed much since I was there... Yeah, we all crave God, and others try and fill that void with worldly things, such as drugs, sex, etc. Waiting really isn't that hard. (Like I'm one to talk, 20 and have never dated. Laughing ) but you get my point. It is really sad, because kids just so complicate life, and if you arn't prepared for that, and have a stable life, then it's really tough. I think this problem is one that really needs to be addressed. And the only way to do that is abstinence. Because habits are easier to kick, if they never start.

I was going to say that people get pregnant because they are too cheap to buy condoms, but then I noticed that condoms are no more than $10 a box of 12-14. So, I guess people are just bored and lazy. Bored, so they have sex, and lazy because they can't be bothered to stop at their local Safeway beforehand.

Haha. Yes, lazy & stupid. I mean, really, people should learn how to use a condom if they are even going to have sex. Or they could end up like this poor guy....



Hahaha! Very Happy

Well... close... But it's actually because people have an empty feeling inside... they try to fill it with sex, drug, and alcohol... but what really needs to go there is God who is the really comforter.

Not to offend anyone but if they want to have sex use a condom and and birth control even if you don't believe artificial birth control or they could be smarter and just not have sex.

Best kind of birth control is self-control, kids. cheers

Hmm. I wouldn't say people are trying to fill an emotional void with sex, but I guess everyone has their own theories.

Shall we debate the fine points of adultery? The traditional definition is to have sex with a married woman.
Not that I'm condoning extramarital sex, but we need a nice debate in this thread. We can't go on agreeing with each other, or this thread will die.

Hahaha, this is why we love you Egg. Razz

That's true, that is the actual deffiniton, but I'm pretty sure (and I'll look) that in other places it condemns pre-marital intercourse as well.

We all have a void for God, and we seek wordly satisfaction totry and fll that void, because we are too foolish to figure out what really is lacking in our lives is God, not things. Which is part of the sexual issue. I've noticed that none of the die-hard Christians I know (such as yourself) seem to have any problems being chaste, and that is because Giod gives us the strength to control ourselves. Wink

Yet I know many Christians who do stumble and fall to temptation and end up having sex. I wouldn't say they are bad people, or that they have a void in their lives. I would just say that everyone does dumb stuff.

That's true. But you need to ask for forgivness, and then not do it again. You don't get forgiven, just to get up and go do it again. Razz IDK, I just think it really isn't that hard NOT to have sex, it's just self control....

The problem is Egg, we usually end up agreeing at the end, because we bring up points that we both pretty much cannot dispute. Razz
