Latest Issue. Past Issues. In a recent summit on human sex at Johns Hopkins University, kidnapping survivor Elizabeth Smart made some surprising remarks about why victims of rape may not try to escape their captors. Her conclusion? They, like she, may have been raised in a culture that says a woman's worth in rooted in purity sexual purity. Recounting an anecdote from a childhood teacher who compared having sex to being chewed like a piece of gum, Smart, a Mormon, tells her audience that she "felt crushed" after being raped: "Who could want me now?

I felt so dirty and so filthy. I understand, so easily, all too well, why someone wouldn't run. Smart might be the most famous figure sex speak out against her conservative religious culture's sexual ethos, but she's not alone. Increasingly in recent weeks, prominent evangelical writers and bloggers have also decried the emphasis placed on sexual purity in conservative Christianity. The central thrust of these evangelical critiques is a rejection of the "damaged goods" metaphor. On her high-profile websiteNew Sdx Times bestselling author Rachel Held Evans calls out the "horrific object lessons," sex the one described by Smart, which aim to convince young people that "premarital sex ruins a person for good.

Prodigal Puriyt, an up-and-coming online publication that caters to twenty-something evangelicals, recently featured a candid piece on abandoning the concept of virginity. While deliberately keeping her own sexual history private, Emily Maynard, the author of the article, proclaims that she is no longer going to think of herself as a virgin or a non-virgin.

I'm done with Christians enforcing oppression in the name of purity. Maynard's piece, as well as Bessey's account of feeling purty targeted and shamed by a "well-intentioned" preacher's sex talk, reveal another purity with the evangelical purity narrative: the assumption that its young Christian audience is a fresh crop of virgins. Research shows otherwise. A study conducted by the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy found that nearly 80 percent of unmarried evangelicals have sex before marriage.

Not only, then, is the purity-focused Christian message sometimes harmful; it also appears to be ineffective. Denunciations of purity culture are sex to emerge from the evangelical ivory tower as well. Richard Beck, Professor and Chair of the Psychology Department at Abilene Christian University, an evangelical school, expounds on purity deeper implications of purity obsession both on his website and in his book Uncleantaking particular issue with sex words and metaphors Christians use to frame sexual sin, especially for women.

Beck argues that using the metaphor of purity imports a "psychology of contamination into our moral and spiritual lives," and this contamination is viewed as a permanent state, one beyond restoration. Sex, while women are subjected purity the language of purity and seen as irreparably contaminated after having sex, the same is not true for men. According to Beck, a sex losing his virginity is seen as a "mistake, a stumbling," a mode of behavior that can be changed and rehabilitated.

This, he argues, exposes a double standard at work in the language of sexual purity: women who have sex are seen as "damaged goods," but men who have sex are not. Beck's analysis reveals how evangelical critiques of purity are increasing in nuance and complexity, but what remains all but absent in these accounts is a fleshed-out alternative.

While these writers clearly sex abandoning the language of purity, they seem reluctant to relinquish the abstinence ideal entirely—which creates an interesting tension. What, exactly, does a post-purity sexual ethic look like for evangelicals? In response to this question, some evangelical writers, such as Anna Broadway and Rachel Held Evans, affirmed the traditional idea of saving sex for marriage.

Broadway, author of Sexless in the Cityhopes to reframe rather than reject se abstinence ideal. In her writing, she advocates a shift from a boundaries-focused sexual ethos to one that promotes and articulates positive practices, such as unmarried individuals living pufity community, rather than alone. When asked to describe a post-purity evangelical perspective, Broadway responded, "It's got to be way more holistic.

We've done a very bad job of connecting single sexuality to married sexuality," despite that fact "both groups of people are called to sexual self-control. For Evans, the problem with purity is not the ideal of abstinence per se purity, but rather how it has been packaged and sold to evangelical youth. Other writers appeared more willing purity redirect this discussion away from marriage and abstinence to more fundamental concerns about emotional and spiritual health.

Richard Beck, for one, asserted that the primary purtiy of a post-purity sexual ethic should be "making sure that sex and love are always united. God's interest in sex, then, is less puritanical than a concern about how we hurt and damage each other, physically and emotionally, in ways that often leave lifelong scars.

Beck also discussed an additional problem with an evangelical narrative that idealizes the marital benefits of abstinence: Evangelical marriages don't always last, and high-profile evangelical figures are not immune to sex scandals or marital infidelity. Dianna Anderson, author of Damaged Goods ,a forthcoming book on evangelicalism and purity, has written about evangelical sexual purity narratives for several years. Anderson, who was raised in a conservative Christian tradition, now considers herself "post-evangelical," and much of her book will explore a faith-based approach purit human sexuality that echoes the cry for a more holistic narrative, while moving even further away from the abstinence ideal.

Sex proposed model purity sed concept of losing one's virginity, but redefines it as a "personal process determined by the individual" rather than an "event"—a move that recalls Maynard's Prodigal article on deciding to turn in her "V Card.

If this collection of voices is any indication, the traditional battle lines of the abstinence culture war are beginning to blur. A revisionist evangelical view of sexuality appears to be emerging, one that doesn't revolve around that ultimate youth-group quandary— how far is too far? Although each of these post-purity perspectives diverges from the purity evangelical narrative to varying degrees, the common thread purit them seems to be a desire for a more putity sexual ethic, one that remains thoroughly Christian while shifting away sex the purity of purity to concepts of purity health and wholeness.

What is still unclear is whether these revisions will gain traction within evangelicalism or remain confined to progressive inlets of the evangelical subculture. We want to hear what you think about this article.

A revisionist evangelical view of sexuality appears to be emerging, one that doesn't revolve around that ultimate youth-group quandary— how far is too far? Although each of these post-purity perspectives diverges from the current evangelical narrative to varying degrees, the common thread among them seems to be a desire for a more holistic sexual ethic, one that remains thoroughly Christian while shifting away from the metaphor of purity to concepts of sexual health and wholeness.

What is still unclear is whether these revisions will gain traction within evangelicalism or remain confined to progressive inlets of the evangelical subculture. Likewise, God designed sex to exist within certain boundaries. Sexual union is intended as an expression of a lifelong commitment , a symbol of the spiritual union that exists only within the unconditional commitment of marriage.

Apart from marriage, the lasting commitment is absent and the sex act becomes a false expression, a lie. Sex does not become permissible through subjective feelings, but through the objective lifelong commitment of marriage. God requires that we be holy and pure instruments to be used by Him 2 Timothy When you came to Christ, when you affirmed Him as Lord of your life, you surrendered your entire self, including your body, to God.

He paid the ultimate price for it: the shed blood of God Almighty! Be careful what you expose your mind to. If you do, your resistance will break down. There is a continuum of physical contact that begins with things like sitting close and hand-holding on the near side and moves to sexual intercourse on the far side.

Once you let your body cross the line, it will neither know nor care about your Christian convictions. No matter how fervently you pray that you will not fall into immorality, you will fall if you continue to make choices that feed your temptation toward immorality. If you have sexual intimacy with someone outside marriage, you are stealing from God and the other person. Do not arouse those emotions in your own body.

Pay attention to the promptings of the Spirit so that you can be clean and virtuous. The Spirit of the Lord will withdraw from one who is in sexual transgression. Avoid situations that invite increased temptation, such as late-night or overnight activities away from home or activities where there is a lack of adult supervision. Do not participate in discussions or any media that arouse sexual feelings. Do not participate in any type of pornography. The Spirit can help you know when you are at risk and give you the strength to remove yourself from the situation.

Have faith in and be obedient to the righteous counsel of your parents and leaders. Homosexual and lesbian behavior is a serious sin. If you find yourself struggling with same-gender attraction or you are being persuaded to participate in inappropriate behavior, seek counsel from your parents and bishop. They will help you.
