This is a post from Connie Jakab about a complex subject. Sex before marriage.
The topic of sex before marriage is a topic that many in the Christian church take and have taken seriously. Many for various reasons will tell you the importance of why they wait. Some will concede specifically because of Scripture. Others will take it a step further and tell you other reasons.
And while the church have mentioned this in message after message, the fact is there are Christians who have had or will have sex before marriage. The other fact is, some will never publicly admit it. The reason is many know they will feel condemned, shamed and judged.
Now many in society, or those that used to be part of the Christian church, think this is an unreasonable expectation. Some might think that this idea is actually archaic. Sex is a natural part of life they might say. But others actually take the concept of waiting seriously . Maybe they may not wait until marriage, but they will take it seriously.
So, I’ll encourage you to read Connie’s post. Then ask what you think about the concept of sex before marriage? Does the church or society have it right?
