I got lots of comments — and more than a little hate mail — for suggesting that premarital sex might not be that bad for Christians and that maybe we should get over it.
My thoughts were primarily theoretical. Not so for Jamie Wright, the Very Worst Missionary. She’s got teenage sons, and she most definitely does not want them having sex:
I want my kids to be armed with the truth (and maybe with condoms, but mostly with the truth), and the truth is that they should wait to have sex.
There are obvious reasons why:1. You could accidentally create another human being (like I did, oops).2. You could cause yourself or someone else emotional harm by sharing intimate behavior in an irresponsibly casual way.3. Most compelling, you could contract a horrible, painful, itchy, burning, smelly STD, and your penis could fall right off.
But I believe there’s another really good reason to put sex on hold.
