Mandy … not so much. But, years of friendship became a wonderful marriage.
Purity is way less about not doing something, and way more about doing something. Purity is about your heart. When James and I were dating, instead of merely avoiding something, we chose to pursue Christ first. When you truly seek God with all your heart, He helps you remain pure. Full of emotion, I realized how holy marriage really is.
Choosing purity was so worth it. Purity was a huge challenge. During my teenage years, I developed an unhealthy view of women and a destructive relationship with pornography. After graduating from high school, I gave my life to Christ. I knew I wanted to marry someone who pursued Jesus with everything they had. I also knew winning over a girl like her meant I needed to pursue Jesus with obedience.

What about chemistry in marriage? What happens then? Hi Anon, If there is enough chemistry between two people for them to get married, then I believe that a desire-less marriage is not a possibility.

Is Casual Sex Ever OK for Christians?
You must be careful because you are linked with the first person you lose your virginity to. Abraham got married again but only after Sarah died.
Solomon was promiscuous even though he was married. Mary and Joseph were virgins before they married and stayed that way until after Jesus was conceived. So as you can see there is no perfect example of marriage in the bible because there are no perfect people but if you want to avoid the wrath of God, do not neglect his teachings.
I am the perfect example. I had an awful ordeal. So learner from experience to trust in God, examine myself, consult the word first, do not put your trust in man and seek God first. They are more than teachings. They are a lamp to my feet. And a light to my path. Psalm and keep his commandments if you are his Deutoronomy There are a lot of things in this world that can hurt you and like the article said sex can be one less thing to hurt you because no one is perfect and we all sin either intentionally or unintentionally.
So be wise take heed what you learn from reading the bible and be careful of the things planted in your head by word of mouth unless it matches up with the bible. The devil roams about like a lion seeking whom he wants to destroy and he can jump in people by means of spirits.
Notice you are likely to be a lot like the people you are around. There are good spirits and bad spirits and waiting for sex can actually be a protection against bad ones. Just always, always, always seek God first. Faith in God also includes faith in His timing. Never give up hope.
