Godliness leads to love for other Christians, and finally you will grow to have genuine love for everyone. Whether you are single, dating, engaged or married, these verses are good to write down in a journal, or even on sticky notes!
Proverbs 22:6 - Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. John - If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do [it].
"Those parts of the Bible aren't relevant to today," he told Cindy. After all, if they're not true because people can't control their desires, why not completely eliminate them? Crazy or not, Cindy had made her point—there are holes in Rob's it's-not-true-because-people-can't-control-their-desires theology. Because, if his beliefs were based on truth, they would stand up in every circumstance, but they don't.
"After all, when the Scriptures were written, the people during that time got married when they were teens; so they didn't have to struggle with sexual temptation like we do now." In response to Rob's argument, Cindy found Scriptures about sexual purity and showed them to him. After all, we can just pick and choose the parts of Scripture that we want to believe on sexual purity, right? For example, if sex before marriage is okay because people supposedly can't control themselves, then it must be okay to engage in pornography, too, right?
Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 1 Peter 1:9 - Receiving the end of your faith, [even] the salvation of [your] souls.
Titus 2:4 - That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, Ecclesiastes 12:1 - Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them; Ephesians 6:4 - And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
1 Timothy - Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
