My female friends keep telling me, "It's not that big of a deal, and no girls over 20 are virgins.The fact they've had sex doesn't change much." But not only do I not believe them, there's lots of scientific as well as biblical evidence for it being a big deal! There's a lot bound up in it, so let me see if I can offer some thoughts on a few different fronts.God's Word tells us that sexual sin is very serious, that we are to avoid "sexual immorality" (sometimes translated as "fornication") and that we should all be virgins when we marry.See, among other passages, Matthew ; Mark ; 1 Corinthians 6, 13-20; 1 Timothy 5:2; Galatians -21; Song of Solomon 2:7; Hebrews 13:4.
Every one of us who are now in Christ was once — quite deservedly — an object of God's wrath (Ephesians 2:3).
The old has passed away and the new has come (2 Corinthians ).
And given our perfect Lord's forgiveness of us, we are on very dangerous ground scripturally when we assume a posture of refusing to forgive and holding others' sins against them (see Matthew -35; Luke 11:4).
I've been checking off the various boxes over the years to become a better mate, yet I cannot seem to find any girls of marriage potential.
I have not been able to find any Christian girls who are virgins.
