Embracing Jesus in a chaste life is a huge step toward gaining happiness and peace, along with challenges to become the best person possible. Since I really believe that, this blog tries to convince people to live a chaste life. There are five groups of people I hope to have dialog with.
Folks considering return to the church, especially if it’s the Catholic Church
I’m just guessing, but I can imagine there are people who would return to Christianity except they aren’t sure about giving up some of the stuff you have to give up (what the church calls repentance). They wonder if they will get back more than they give. I’ll try to convince you that giving up sex outside marriage for the sake of Jesus is a crazy-good investment. You get back way more than you give up. And if that applies to something like sex, well it applies to all the other things, too. God always gives more than he asks. He is that kind of person.
Catholics and other Christians who are part of the church, yet who have sex with people they aren’t married to
The popular term is “cafeteria Catholic”. To be sure, any connection with the church is a blessing, yet the fullness of what God offers his children can only be received by those who have given their whole hearts to him – who do not reserve any part of their life by saying “this is mine, not God’s”. This blog is a call to trust God to know more about love and sex than we do. That’s pretty blunt, but if he doesn’t know more than we do, then he isn’t God.
Christians who want some help talking to family and friends about chastity
Maybe something I write could be useful when talking to somebody you love.
People who want to investigate Christianity as a way of life
If you are considering Christianity as a way of life, Jesus explicitly tells you to “count the cost”. Sex is a significant part of life, so being a Christian includes standards of sexual behavior, including sex outside marriage. Chastity does not mean giving up love. It means using sex as God intends it to be used. In fact, the chaste person (married or single, straight or gay) receives gifts from God that makes life more satisfying than before and receives the direct support from God to stick to such a life. With God’s help, it is possible to live a pure life.
People who think I’m dead wrong
Let’s talk! There’s a reason I use my real name and a real picture of me on this blog. I want to have real encounters and that includes folks who think that I and the church are wrong when it comes to sex outside marriage. So let’s talk. You can be pretty rough if you want to be. The only thing I ask is no profanity.
