Sad state of affairs

In my english class at the college I’m attending, we’re reading literature. Right now we’re reading a story about how it was for women “back in the day.” If a woman was having sexual relations with a man she was not married to, she was viewed as “loose” and “a whore.” Isn’t it sad that it’s just the opposite these “modern, enlightened” days? If a woman wishes to remain a virgin and wait for her future husband, she is scorned and made fun of. My brother is in a new relationship and is trying to get back right with the Lord. The woman he is seeing wants to become involved sexually and he doesn’t. She said he’s living in the dark ages. How sad! It’s not popular to please the Lord, only to please our flesh. How it must sadden the Lord that we’ve moved so far from following His word! I can’t help but wonder how much longer God will put up with this…


  1. Thanks Beverly, that’s awesome.

    One thing I stress to my kids is sexual purity. Not only is sex a gift to married couples, but it is also a major spiritual step, which consumates the marriage. It wasn’t intended for fun amongst college co-eds, or anybody for that matter. It really sucks the way modern American society views such a wonderful gift from God.

  2. Glad to know it’s not just me! 🙂 I don’t know how old your bro is, but he needs to reconsider being with someone who doesn’t respect him trying to live righteously! Wow! hasn’t the world flip-flopped on us!?!? My sisters and I have talked about how it is “so awful” by the world’s standards if someone wishes to remain celibate. Even if they don’t love Jesus, wouldn’t the diseases be enough? Pray without ceasing! I am of a mind that God is giving us warning after warning that he’s had about enough…
    I like your blog, Beverly, and will be back to vist! Gotta see more about your book…KUDOS to you!
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
    In His Love, Odale
