Many never married “women” choose to be sexually active and risk pregnancy. Others deliberately become pregnant to either have a child or “hold on” to a relationship. Many “men” are only happy to oblige. Thus our culture accepts the following mores as truth:
–It’s ok to be sexually active to please yourself or to have a child
–Single adults must be sexually active.
–Single men cannot be held responsible for their actions and are reduced to a bilogical sperm donor who is unnecessary in a child’s life.
As a Christian, I REJECT this lack of reasoning! Christians must take a stand for what is right. We must communicate that pre-marital sex is wrong. The singles ministers (ok, so you don’t have one…) and yourn ministers must teach abstinence! If sexual intercoarse has started, it has to stop to walk the Christian walk. We must create a safe environment where accountability can be established. We can teach right and wrong and emphasize God’s standard for purity. Although we can be forgiven, we must CHOOSE not to sin.
If already a single parent, you can expect your church to spiritually and emotional support you and your children. We, the church, are obligated to assist you to reconcile with God (Gal. 6:1)
Tell me what you think. Get involved in your local church! Expect the love of the church.
