Stop Fornicating!

Stop Fornicating!

By:  Johnny O. Trail

            People tend to deal with the consequences and ignore the causes.  This is true in many situations that people face.  If we would avoid sin, there would be no adverse, life-changing decisions involved.  Husbands would not be contemplating divorce if they remained faithful to their wives.  The majority of women would not be seeking an abortion if the refrained from sexual activity until marriage.  People in our nation would not be spending millions of dollars in tax payer’s money to find a cure for AIDS.  Families would not be ripped apart by the consequences of rampant promiscuous behaviors.  What is the answer to all of these problems? Stop Fornicating!

            I recently watched a video produced by the Center for Reproductive Rights.  This is a pro-choice group that wants to “celebrate” brave women who have chosen to have an abortion.  The video was narrated by an actress named Elizabeth Banks.  In the video, Elizabeth talked about the “bravery” of a woman named “Rebecca” who decided to abort her unborn child who was in fact fathered by and abusive boyfriend.  This, of course, happened when her “birth control failed.”  Suffice it to say that the abortion, like the vast majority of abortions, was done as a means of “birth control.”  Several thoughts came to mind upon watching this video.

            If people were sexually pure, there would be virtually no need for abortions when there is an “unwanted pregnancy.”  Instead of worrying about the reaction of an “abusive boyfriend” in a relationship that is potentially harmful to an unborn child, there would be a simple breaking of the relationship.  In regards to the aforementioned vignette, there were two casualties—a woman dealing with the consequences of aborting an unborn child and the death of an innocent human being.

            Instead of remembering the near 58 million children who have been murdered in the name of “reproductive rights,” we would potentially be celebrating an additional 58 million birthdays.  These births could have produced productive and even brilliant individuals—something that this world will never know. 

These 58 million abortions have contributed heavily to questions regarding the live birth of children deemed a “burden” on the society.  The reasoning is inescapable.  If a child can be aborted before birth because of the “burden” it might cause upon its mother, why can one not abort the child after birth for the same cause?  Matthew 2.18 says, “In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.”  God forgive us for our wickedness!

            If people were sexually pure, there would be no co-habitation statistics in our nation.  There would be no single parent homes overseen by mothers who struggle to feed themselves and their families.  Most women who are abandoned by their “boyfriends” after having children are impoverished statistically speaking.  There would be no need for social programs to provide for people who do not have enough money to take care of themselves.  The tax coffers would have more funds to expend for other programs instead of “entitlement” benefits. 

            People who get pregnant before marriage often worry about the impression that others might have of them; especially if they come from a Christian background.  Instead of worrying about the reaction of parents, friends, and other family members about an “unwanted pregnancy,” there would only be questions about why the relationship did not work out.  Sex before marriage complicates relationships, and it causes unforeseen difficulties.

            Individuals who worry about sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s) would not have those sorts of concerns if they remained sexually pure throughout their lives.  That is, they abstain from sexual activity until married and marry some person who had done the same.  Hebrew 13.4 says, “Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.”  In contradistinction to married intimacy, those who engage in sexual activities with people other than their spouse are called “whoremongers and adulterers.”  By way of clarification, a “whoremonger” is one who is likened unto a prostitute or a person who practices debauchery.

            What is the remedy for all of these things?  Stop fornicating!  I Corinthians 7.1-2 says, “Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.  Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.”  Abstinence before marriage and fidelity while married would solve many of the problems that plague our society.
