Editor’s note: Whoa! Talk about blaming and shaming! Claiming that thinking sexual thoughts before marriage will ruin or defile your future marriage is so wrong. It’s human nature to have feelings and thoughts that don’t always line up the way you want and this is veering too close to thought crimes. Why all the fear of thoughts and projecting sin on to others?
By entertaining lustful thoughts we are giving in to the power of lust which is pleasure at its worst description outside of marriage. It is defiling to your future marriage and spouse even if it is just in your mind. We know that all over the Bible we are given warnings to stay clear of sexual sin. We know that it is wrong to have sex outside of marriage. We know that it is wrong to have sex with someone else besides your spouse once you are married, but what about giving into sexual temptations (aside from actual sex) before you are married?
QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders, cultural enforcers and those that seek to keep women submitted to men and ask our readers: What do you think? Agree? Disagree? This is the place to state your opinion. Please, let’s keep it respectful – but at the same time, we encourage readers to examine the ideas of Quiverfull and Spiritual Abuse honestly and thoughtfully.Read our hate mail at Jerks 4 Jesus
