by India Irving with quotes from Jessa, Jinger, Jill and Jana Duggar posted at Hollywood Life – ’19 Kids & Counting’ Girls ‘Avoid Men’ & ‘Censor Thoughts’ To Stay Virgins
However, until they are married, they aren’t even supposed to THINK about anything associated with baby making! “It’s easy to put yourself into physical and moral danger and give into those emotions or sensual thoughts that promise pleasant, but only temporary, fulfillment,” the girls explain in their tell-all book Growing Up Duggar.
But how do they avoid those thoughts when do come? “By censoring our thoughts through the filter of God’s word, we will be able to recant any wrong thoughts or temptations that try to sneak in.”
So basically I’m picturing sex thoughts creeping up and then being battled by Bible verses with swords.
