Why Young Christians Are Not Waiting Anymore

I am very surprised to find such an honest straight forward article on the subject of fornication and adultery.  

That’s the implication in the upcoming October issue of an evangelical magazine that claims: that young, unmarried Christians are having premarital sex almost as much as their non-Christian peers. (We have tried to raise the alarm over this tidal wave of fornication, adultery, divorce and remarriage among Evangelicals, Fundamentalists, Pentecostals and Charismatics. This is due to the feel good messages that has overthrown the preaching and teaching in meetings.  This is a direct result of having done away with any mention of Sin, Righteousness, The Fear of God, and The Coming Judgment. And also of all the sins of man excepting Blasphemy of the Holy Ghost, God seems to hate fornication and adultery more than any other sin. This means that any believer dabbles in these kinds of sin and corruption does them to their own absolute peril.     

The article in Relevant magazine, entitled “(Almost) Everyone’s Doing It” cited several studies examining the sexual activity of single Christians. One of the biggest surprises was a December 2009 study, conducted by the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy which included information on sexual activity.

While the study’s primary report did not explore religion, some additional analysis focusing on sexual activity and religious identification yielded this result: 80 percent of unmarried evangelical young adults (18 to 29) said that they have had sex - slightly less than 88 percent of non-evangelical unmarried young adults, according to the teen pregnancy prevention organization.

Mark 7:21-23 For from within, out of the heart of man, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye Gr. Opthalmos Poneros -- Poneria Poneros Note this word bears some similarity to Fornication Gr. Pornos. Whereas Pornos is the act of having non-adulterous sex. Poneros here is done with the eyes so it is sexually suggestive looks [A prostitute or a fornicator taking one with their eyes] Poneros can also be looking down in disgust with one’s eyes or facial expression. Or the ever popular rolling of one’s eyes belittling another.) blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these things come from within and defile the man. (These things absolutely defile believers, so that they are rejected by Jesus Christ. In other words these are sins unto death for Bible Believing Christians, that the blood of Jesus Christ does not cleanse wash away or purify.  When people commit these high crimes, they enter into satan’s keep where they are made to pay every last pence for their evil deeds)   

Revelation 2:14 But I have a few things against thee.; because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed idols, and to commit fornication.

It should be shocking to read in the book of Revelation that two churches or two denominations were immersed in acts of Fornication, Adultery – more than likely manifesting themselves in Unrighteous Divorce and Remarriage.

One of these two Churches is said to have had “The doctrine of Balaam” These teachings would have sit forth the notion that being Kingz Kidz nothing is to be withheld from you, and that nothing is sin. So that according to Balaam the greatest defilement before God, and that used upon the children of Israel this one thing would cause Israel to lose favor with God and cause Him to cast Israel aside for another people. 

So in this church Adultery and Fornication were made out to be ok, through some form of eternal security, extreme grace, being kingz kidz, or some other blurb of unscriptural psycho-babble.  While in all actuality, in the bible it is recorded that God destroyed all those who committed the Fornication of Balaam. And for those Old Covenant New Covenant Truthers out there because it is specifically listed in the New Covenant book of Revelation, the relevance of the utter destruction of all believers in Christ who partake of such blatant sexual acts within the frame work of a congregation or one their own, will enter into the like fate of those who committed fornication in Israel as per Balaam’s instructions.     

Incidentally: Balaam was a prophet of God who for a whole room of gold, betrayed his charge of God. Balaam was  bought out for the purpose of discerning how that God would remove His divine protection from the children of Israel. Once that hedge was removed that surrounded Moses and the children of Israel, these enemy nations would swoop down and go in and destroy them all. (We strongly suspect that the means Balaam sold was the means by which the Midianites had utterly defiled themselves with, so that as a people they were rejected of God)

There was also one other cherry that Balaam desired to pluck.  Understand that Balaam was the prophet of God to the Midianites just as Moses father-in-law Jethro was the priest of God for the Midianites (Understand here that under Jethro’s tutelage Moses had his meeting of God in the wilderness,  [We also strongly suspect that Jethro gave Moses the Holy Book of the Midianites: The Book of Job effectively passing the torch of God from the Midianites to the Children of Israel) The second cherry Balaam no doubt desired here was the elimination of Moses and Israel so that Balaam would be the one who was able to restore to the Midianites the title of being: God’s chosen people.

In saying these things see here that the means Balaam used was a quote from the book of Job.

This utter defilement here spelled out that was to be used against Israel turns up in the Book of Revelation. The idea of the lamp of the Midianites going out and Israel’s light being lit before the Lord which happens later in the wilderness with the Holy Candlestick as an eternal witness upon the earth unto the Lord turns up also in the book of Revelation. The removing of the candlesticks of the seven churches was a traumatic, traumatic, event.  This was a blotting out of these churches, and their members being rejected of Jesus Christ. Understand that all seven of these churches’ candlesticks were removed as nothing but a few stones remain of any one of them.

Thus brings us to an absolute understanding of how deadly God’s people defiling themselves, and spotting and defiling their garments is not only to Israel in the Old Testament but to entire churches in the New Covenant. Adultery with another man’s wife, Adultery with an unrighteously divorced believer, fornication for a believer, Unrighteous divorce by a believer are sin’s unto death.

The one night stand, and sex for fun among young Christian people is to open the doors of eternal death. God can not and will not simply wink these things away ascribing them to the sins of youth.  Jesus condemns these specific acts as well so do not deceive yourself to believe he will cover such grievous sin and accept with open arms Christians who have so deeply defiled.

Committing Adultery, Fornication, and Unrighteous Divorce is the Sin of Esau that is the trading your God given birthright for something so weak beggarly that is here a moment and then gone with the blink of an eye.  Israel have I love and Esau have I hated because Esau took the most precious thing he possessed and traded it for a bowl of lentils. For a man his penis, and his sperm is the most precious thing he possesses from God. It is his holy of holies. For a woman her vagina her fluids and eggs are the most precious things God has given to her, it is her holy of holies, 

Therefore it is the commandment of God for a young man and a young woman to protect with everything they have, even unto death that which the Lord has laid in their trust. So that any defilement of a man and woman’s sexually organs, fluids, and seed is deep defilement, defilement which any believer who partakes of such things their garments shall be permanently stained,  these shall not take part in the first resurrection, but shall stand in the final judgment when all the books of their deeds shall be opened and they shall be made to account for all their evil deeds.         

If one were to be so childish to think that God hating and judging harshly those who commit fornication, adultery, and commit unrighteous divorce, think again. Millions upon millions of CINO’s [Christians In Name Only] will be destroyed according to everything that is written in the bible concerning these deeds, consider the rise of these sins as part of our being in the last days.

The devil is making war with the church of this day and hour, just as he made war against Job, against Israel, and against the seven churches of Asia Minor which were all blotted out.   In the US and seemingly all Westernized Nations, we see this war of people’s soul, and their sexual birthright begins in early grade school children, where they are now being taught to sexually defile themselves.

Putting your children in a Christian school, or home schooling does not protect your children as many parents foolishly believe.  In truth ONLY the parents in a Godly Household being in constant contact, being the teacher guide and nurturer of their children can arm and protect their kids against this onslaught.

Revelation 2:20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because though sufferest that woman Jezebel which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. 

Revelation 18:2-4 And he cried mightily with a strong voice. Saying Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen and is become a habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her.  And the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven saying come out from her my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins that you receive not of her plagues.

The article highlights what challenges abstinence movements face. Movements such as “True Love Waits,” encourage teens to wear purity rings, sign virginity pledges and pledge chastity during public ceremonies.

Yet many of these Christian youths eventually abandon their purity pledges, Relevant’s Tyler Charles concludes in the article. Tyler talked to people like “Maria,” an evangelical woman who said she wanted to wait until marriage to have sex.

But she said she started having sex with her college boyfriend when she turned 20 because nearly everyone, even most of  her Christian friends, were having sex.

Maria: It seemed everyone in my life, older and younger, had “done it.” In fact, I waited longer than most people I knew and longer than both of my sisters, even though we were all Christians and came from a good home.

Relevant theorizes about why it’s so hard for so many young Christians to wait, including the saturation of sex in popular culture, the prevalence of pornography and a popular “do what feels good philosophy.”

Yet the article also asks a question that rarely comes up in discussions about abstinence movement. Relevant notes that in biblical times, people married earlier. The average age for marriage has been increasing in the U.S for the last 40 years. Today, it’s not unusual to meet a Christian who is single at 30 - or 40 or 50, for that matter. So what do you tell them? Keep waiting?

Scot McKnight, co-author of “The Jesus Creed,” acknowledges that young, single Christians face temptations that their counterparts in the biblical age didn’t face.

He tells Relevant: Sociologically speaking, the one big difference – and it’s monstrous – between the biblical teaching and our culture is the arranged marriages of very young people. If you get married when you’re 13, you don’t have 15 years of temptation.

So what should a Christian parent or youth pastor do? How do they convince more young Christians to wait until marriage, or should they stop even trying?
