The fact that, as we go further and further into the last days, America distances herself further and further from God and embraces false gods; namely, "consequence-free" sex. But, of course, there is no such thing. Still, such is life in a post-feminist, post-sexual revolution, post-hook up culture.
I suspect most abortions are sought because of fornication, which is not only un-Christian, but also unladylike.
I went to college largely under pressure from my mom, who was influenced by the feminists and was convinced it was necessary to succeed in a career. However, it has done absolutely nothing for me. I honestly wish I'd never even gone. I have a job as opposed to a "career" and it doesn't even require a college degree. I can hardly think of anything that wastes both time and money (a lot of it!) more than college. If I had a chance at a do over, I would not go. I actually regret that I did.

The way gonorrhea works, not everyone knows they have it. And with this new strain it's even more important than ever to find out." Godly Counsel: 1Â Corinthians 6:18 - Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
You can never go wrong in hearkening unto God's counsel. I would also refer people to I Corinthians 7:2,9; flee from fornication and to marriage. There is no Biblical justification to fornicate; however, prolonged singleness will prove to be a losing battle for the majority of us.
Rufus wrote: Why wait for a man to decide this? Why not just adhere to the Bible and realize the forbidding to marry is a doctrine of devils and that a head of a new testament church is to be the husband of one wife? 1 Timothy 4:1-3 - 1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. 1Â Timothy 3:2 - A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
Excellent comment. This matter has already been decided by the Scriptures, and they are the final authority, not the RCC.

Not much; they've simply chosen another media device on which to waste time and be indoctrinated in the world's sinful ways.
It's been four years since I've been TV-less; no looking back!
Great Sermon! Cezar, I stand by my original comment. The fact that people are needlessly and unnecessarily delaying marriage and fornicating in the meantime makes this all the more difficult. And being a follower of Christ in a world that hates Him and His people is not--again, NOT--easy. "Christians" who claim that going against the world's grain is easy are not being realistic. Maybe you married early, and in the Lord; I hope so. Not all of us have been so blessed.
Interesting comments; I am a teetotaler by choice as well, but my Christian testimony has certainly influenced that decision. In addition, I am concerned that if I drank, it could cause a "weaker" brother or sister to stumble. I don't want to be the cause of that.
I know of nothing in Scripture that prohibits the intake of alcohol, but am familiar with the verses some have quoted here warning against drunkenness. I avoid it altogether because I don't even want to risk becoming a drunkard. The loss of credibility to my testimony, the risk of the sin of drunkenness, and, most importantly, blaspheming the Lord's name is simply not worth it.
Great Sermon! I could never excuse or condone assault, rape, and so on, obviously, but should women really expect men to behave chivalrously if we females don't act like ladies? The softness, gentleness, tenderness, and nurturing spirit inherent within femininity has been replaced with aggressiveness, competitiveness, loudness, profaneness, etc. I believe females improve our chances of being treated like ladies when we act like ladies, particularly in the Biblical sense.
I don't know that much about Mr. Walesa (i.e., whether or not he professes to be a Christian), but it is always refreshing to see someone refuse to kowtow to the pressure of the sodomites. It continually amazes me that such a minority wields such power and influence in the media and the pop culture. But alas, they ultimately will not prevail. God will not be mocked.
Thank you! Thank you for this broadcast and for particularly pointing out the protective aspects of marriage as detailed in I Corinthians 7. Indeed, Scriptural study reveals that Christianity protects women and does not demean them.
