The Virtue of Chastity is Possible


Although it seems that saving one’s sexual purity for marriage is a rare occurrence, it is refreshing to hear an occasional voice telling youth that it is possible to do so.  In the sports world, quarterbackTim Tebow was often ridiculed by non-Christians for his often public profession of his faith in Christ, and was even sometimes made fun of for vowing to maintain sexual purity before marriage, but Mr. Tebow has remained humble and ever so gracious in his servitude to our Lord and Savior, Jesus,  The Original Light.  He often gives of his time and money for others, and uses his platform to glorify God.

Recently, Billy Hallowell, who writes for The Blaze, and in this case Deseret News, published an article about Inside Edition correspondent Megan Alexander.  Mrs. Alexander, like Mr. Tebow, has managed to have a career in the public eye and remain true to her Christian values and faith in Jesus.

Mrs. Alexander has recently published a book titled Faith in the Spotlight:  Thriving in Your Career While Staying True to Your Beliefs, in which she shares her practical advice for achieving excellence in career, faith, and family and gives us an honest look at thriving in a secular industry as a believer.  Her courage in sharing her obedience to God’s call for sexual purity in her youth and young adulthood is to be admired, as so many youth might be empowered to make the same stand in the face of intense peer pressure with the encouragement from someone who is Exhibit A that it can be done, and that God favors those who honor Him.

Bureaucratic Backfire! Students Back Bradlee Dean| Brenner Brief


From TheBrennerBrief.com

 

“The reports that you are getting about the beliefs of students in public schools is not coming from the students, but rather the sick media spin-doctors and their disinformation.” – Bradlee Dean

Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., and Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., have introduced sex-education legislation limiting funding for “ineffective” abstinent-only programs, while expanding the dangerous comprehensive sex-education program. At the same time, a student at Clear Lake Middle School in Florida was punished for wearing an abstinence T-shirt.

As shown in the example above, America has allowed themselves to be deceived by the mainstream media, so much so that they believe that young students across this country are accepting of all forms of immorality, when in fact they are rejecting it. Amidst a generation that suffers the highest suicide rates, drug and alcohol abuse, teen pregnancy, abortion and anti-depressant usage – this is hardly the case.
