Editor’s note: Then this entire contradictory hot mess takes an entirely different turn, away from porn and towards not giving in sexual temptation. Which is way different than avoiding being molested or having your mind sullied by a Victoria’s Secret or International Male catalog. Theme of the next three bits is: ‘wait for your wedding night to have sex and you’ll be blessed’ with the usual high amount of slut shaming thrown.
Trigger warning for purity culture/rape culture tropes.
To the youth: You are the future. I won’t tell you that waiting for your mate isn’t hard. It is. I have wondered a million times why God gave teenagers such powerful, raging hormones. Why couldn’t He have placed that hormonal curse on the old folks that have all the patience and discipline in the world? It’s hard just to keep your thoughts straight sometimes. But if you knew what is waiting for you… if you only knew how good it could be! You would never accept a toy car in the place of a real, shiny red Porsche.
Don’t listen to the disillusioned and bitter couples who talk about how hard marriage is, struggling to get along and trying to make it work. If they talk like that, you can bet they messed up somewhere in the past and have no idea what marriage was intended to be. They think their broken product is the way all marriages are constituted. They are wrong. Out of dozens of marriages (good marriages, but not trouble free), we know of only three that came from pure pasts on both sides, neither of them bringing into the marriage any regrets or moral downfalls. Those three marriages were fantastic from the start.
The Bible says, “Be not deceived, God is not mocked; whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” If you sow trouble with your flesh before marriage, you’ll reap trouble later on. If you sow purity—oh, yes! It can be soooooooooo good! Take it from us: a pure youth makes for a fantastic marriage, without regrets, without heartache, and without fear. Neither one of us has had second thoughts, and we never will. Be assured: waiting is worth it!
