I\’m 27 and a virgin. It definitely hasn\’t been easy. But I made an educated and logical decision to remain a virgin with my â€œwholeâ€ person. From a medical standpoint, virginity simply means remaining pureâ€”not just abstaining from sex but also from alcohol, drugs, and cigarettes. A virgin does not have to be some outdated or overly religious person. He or she is simply someone who has chosen to be pure.
Some say, â€˜Anything is O.K., as long as it\’s practiced with moderation.\’ But, a lot of people have learned the hard wayâ€”one time is all you need to become infected.
An article entitled â€œSexual Abstinenceâ€ confirmed, â€œMany young people are saying no to sex before marriage.â€ The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the number one way to avoid STDs is to remain abstinent.
You may be thinking, â€œHow do people actually live like that in 2010?!â€ The answer is: Get back to the basics! The primary way to remain pure with your â€œwhole personâ€ is to â€œflee fromâ€ (avoid) all drinking, drugging, and sexual involvement!
I never thought I would get to the age of 27 and be able to stay â€œpureâ€ in all these areas; but God has kept me, and I have kept me!
I have faced the same â€œpeer pressureâ€ as others, but have chosen to overcome through the Word of God (Psalms 119:9-11). No matter what you\’ve done in your past, the blood of Jesus Christ redeems, and it\’s never too late to make a decision for a new beginning. So, join me and the many others who are making this stand for â€œwhole personâ€ purity…Lot\’s of people are doing it!
