Pastors and church members use their hard-earned money to teach that the Bible speaks against premarital sex, for both those who are adults and those who are singles.
Yes children are supposed to obey the mores of their parents and their leaders. When teens become pregnant out of wedlock, parents and pastors are broken over this matter.
But it is not the sole responsibility of the churches, alone. Parents must encourage their children to study the Scriptures through the churches.
Young people should keep themselves from premarital sex. Preserve yourself for that one whom God has chosen for you. Birth control is not the answer to integrity in life.
Sex before marriage robs you of the privilege of obedience to God. Sexual purity prevents the unwanted sexually transmitted diseases.
Sexual purity gives you the joy of knowing you are pleasing yourself, your parents and Almighty God and the joy of knowing that you are preserving your life for the one whom God will give to you “until death do you part.”
