The last article about promiscuity was primarily aimed at adults. This is more for you teenagers out there who just want to have fun. However, it also applies to adult women who are unattached.
Here are some things to consider: 1) Anyone who knows biology knows that sex can result in pregnancy. If you aren’t ready to be a parent, abstinence is the best policy. Yes, I know about condoms and birth control. I also know that they are not foolproof, they can be forgotten or dismissed as too much trouble in the heat of passion.
2)STD’s in this country are rampant. Every time you have sex with more than one person, you are passing on to the next one whatever bacteria may have been mixed in you from the previous person. HIV is one of those.
3)The HPV (human papaloma virus) is only caused by sex. The Bible says, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap; and he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” In other words, if you have a devil-may-care attitude about your body and you sleep around, you can expect your body to pay you back. This is not God getting back at you. This is God telling you how life works. It’s a fact of nature. However, if you put God first in your life and allow Him to take up residence in your heart (this is the Holy Spirit) you are promised eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ our Lord.
4)You may have pleasure in those illicit sinful liaisons you will like yourself less and less and will give more and more of yourself away, whittling away your self-esteem until you feel completely worthless. It will become harder and harder to find a man who will honor and respect you. You have already given the impression that you think you’re just a piece of meat to be used and thrown away.
You are worth more than that. God values you and wants you to do the same. Saving yourself for marriage may be old fashioned and weird in this day and time but don’t you deserve to have something pure and unspoiled to give to the person you’re going to marry? By the way, you also deserve someone who has saved himself for you.
If you have already been promiscuous, it is not too late to start over. Ask God to forgive you (He will) and ask Him to help you change and stop the destructive behavior. You still have value. Don’t give up on yourself. If you have a disease, get medical attention; be honest with the person you intend to marry someday, apologize for your past mistakes, ask that person to forgive you and do your best to change. With God’s help anything is possible. (Philippians 4:13). Best wishes. If you want help, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be happy to help you find medical professionals, counseling, whatever you need. Don’t give up on yourself. I care.
