Recently, I was very pleased to see a news item on television about a singing group that had pledged to keep their virginity until they were married. That in itself was amazing in today's world of immorality, especially among youth, but even more amazing is the fact that the singers were all young men. Not surprisingly, they were ridiculed and called ugly names by a popular comedian. But it was also gratifying to hear other young entertainers praise the group for their courageous, moral stand.
The world needs more young people like these, who would stand up for godly principles and not follow the crowd. The Bible states: :"Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, ye should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world" (Titus 2:12). And again, "Know ye not that ye are the tremple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are" (1 Corinthians 3:16-17).
Young people, protect your body. Keep it holy. Take a stand for righteousness, and God will protect you and honor you.
