Chastity Help from The Bible
For our own good, sexual desires/activities are best under Christ’s control, I Thessalonians 4:3-5, TLB.
“God wants you to keep clear sexual sin so that each of you will marry in holiness -not in lustful passion in ignorance of God and his ways.”
Behaviour to Avoid
Romans 13:13, TLB: “Be decent so that all can approve your behavior. Don’t spend time at wild parties, getting drunk, adultery and lust, fighting, or jealousy.”
Keeping Yourself Pure
I John 3:3, TLB: “everyone who believes this will try to stay pure because Christ is pure.”
Dating should not include a Sexual Relationship
I Corinthians 6:13,18, TLB: “But sexual sin is never right: our bodies were not made for that, but for the Lord. . .That is why I say to run from sex sin. No other sin affects the body as this one does. When you sin this sin it is against your own body.”
The Bible offers a powerful alternative to drinking. Ephesians 5:18, TLB: “Don’t drink too much wine, for many evils lie along that path; be filled instead with the Holy Spirit and controlled by Him.”
