I appreciated this response - honest, open and lovingly biblical. Thank you for sharing this.

Thank you so much, Lane. Please do pass it on to anyone who is struggling to make sense of this.

The struggle you must go through first of all is to be willing to submit to what God says—whatever it turns out to be. You need to settle in your own mind whether or not you’re willing to do this before you figure out what God has said.

...

Decide whether or not you trust Him first, and then that will take some of the emotion, uncertainty, and fear out of figuring out what He has said on this topic. If He is trustworthy, then obeying Him is the best thing to do, no matter what it turns out to be, no matter how difficult or how disappointing.

So you've got to pass the bill before you can find out what's in it, so to speak?

Abstinence is a good thing.

One of the hardest pills for me to swallow is that while God forgives, memories do not.

Excellent article, Amy.

That's the crux of the issue. Are we willing to submit to whatever God says? There are so many "Christians" out there who claim to be followers yet say, "But, I don't agree with the Bible's stance on abortion or homosexuality or sex before marriage, etc." The inconsistency is appalling and sad.

I fear a lot of people will be standing at the gates pleadingly crying, "Lord, Lord!"

"I never knew you" are probably the scariest four words ever uttered in response.

God is perfect and His rules are only there to protect us from our depraved selves. Who are we to question God?
