Re: “Letters

Hey jakeredwing: I happen to know that 28 year old virgin. Not sure if you meant "aesthetic" issues (in which case, you're wrong, she's very pretty) or "ascetic" issues, in which case you're also wrong. She's a Christian (but of course that part of her letter was edited out by the Independent) and Christianity has nothing to do with asceticism. As a friend of Danielle's I can tell you she doesn't live under any kind of binding legalism.

I can also name many other attractive, successful young adults in this city who are waiting until marriage. We don't wait because we don't "get" sex or because we don't want sex. We wait because we're followers of Christ, and we trust that He, as God, knows better than we do about how the human body (which He created) works best. Would you ignore your car manufacturer's advice to get an oil change every 3,000 miles just because you want to be "free to do your own thing"? Of course not, that's ridiculous! But that's what we do when we ignore God's Word.

The problem is that people are sinful and want to go against God's commands for life. The sad part is that sin is not freedom, it's bondage, and it harms the sinner in a myriad of ways. I know the Independent is very outspoken and snarky about Christianity (something Jesus predicted would happen to Christians, by the way: check out John 15:18-20) but I also know that Christianity in this country is very hypocritical. You should allow for the fact that the hypocrites you see in the church are not following the God of the Bible. Before you write Him off because of His less than faithful followers, maybe you should open that book for yourself.

The Bible (and the people who truly follow it) are nothing like what the Independent continually implies. Receive Christ as your Lord and Savior. Be free of the bondage of sin, and escape Hell. He'll forgive you and love you as a son - even if you're not a 28-year-old virgin.
