Absolutely agree. In the last days, people will be lovers of themselves. It will all be about themselves and not those around them. So many people are being "used" sexually, financially, etc. It's costing our country billions but we refuse to look
Very well said!!!
I completely agree - well done.
Intelligent answer, in fact, THE MOST intelligent and logical response to this "question."
I absolutely disagree. Do you realize that fornication outside of marriage whether single or married along with stds and aboritons is costing this country BILLIONS??? Yes, BILLIONS. I absolutely feel that holiness and purity have been pushed aside.
STDs, abortions, unwanted pregnancies, teen pregnancies, etc. are problems of education, not 'purity'. And once again the main advocates of keeping kids stupid regarding sexuality are Christians.
Problems of education, really? You can't be serious. Kids have had plenty of sex ed shoved down their throat and it hasn't helped one bit. Christianity teaches modesty, integrity, purity, holiness. Words the kids shun and mock these days.
You know absolutely nothing about Sex ed if you think it is even remotely adequate. Most programs barely even get basic anatomy right. What has been shoved down our throats is abstinence-only rubbish, which yes, has NOT worked.
IT is not RUBBISH. Abstaining from sex DOES work if you act RESPONSIBLY. If one chooses to touch a hot stove and NOT CARE about the consequences then you'll reap what you sow. How can you blame Christianity for irresponsibility?
Not abstaining from sex also works just fine if you ACT RESPONSIBLY. I don't blame Christianity for irresponsibility. I blame it for teaching that sex is a hot stove. It isn't. It is a deliciously warm bauble of pleasure.
You may view sex that way but for the millions who have had their life permanently altered, changed or shortened, it may not be seen as a deliciously warm bauble of pleasure. It's more like Russian Roulette.
Sex is what it is. What matters is what you do with it. We really aren't saying different things. I advocate using it responsibly the same as you. I just don't find marriage to be an important element of responsibility (or a guaranteed one).

Well said. Jesus teaches us to be humble. Not a loathing humble but a healthy humble. We should love one another and be content with what we have. Humility is the absolute answer.
The reality is since 1973 approximately 50 million abortions have been performed. Sexual diseases cost US $17 billion every year. There are 19 million new cases every year. This is not typical. This is a sad reflection of what is REALLY GOING on!!!
I absolutely agree. We have a culture that increasingly disrespects God and puts spirituality on the shelf with fairy tales. None of those things will bring fulfillment. A review of Ecclesiasties will prove that point.
