Christian virgin dating non virgin
If you are stuck because of pain of your partner’s sexual past, or perhaps feel trapped by your own past, here are some important things to really consider before you take the next step relationally: 1.Our sexual past is a symptom of who we were, and is not necessarily a reflection of who we are.It seems that the topic of sexual history is one that continues to leave deep scars and painful wounds even within our modern generation where virginity may not always be the norm.There are times that we as humans get so fixated on the details that we fail to take in the big picture.I got an email from a concerned virgin: a young man troubled by the sexual sins of his partner’s past.His voice is just one in the choir of hundreds of young men and women that I meet and counsel who are bogged down by the disappointment in their heart at the un-reciprocated sexual purity they face in light of their partner’s sexual history.I once heard it said that someone who cannot forgive themselves for their past is not struggling with the sin of guilt, but with the sin of pride.Pride is the voice that tells us that what has been done is too great of a sin to be covered by God’s grace.
Though a person’s past may add a lot to the dynamics of who they become, the most important factor to consider is who is standing before you today?
If you find yourself stuck on your partner’s sexual past you must ask yourself if you have really accepted and understood God’s grace in your own life.
Like the story of the unforgiving servant, in the book of Matthew chapter 18, who had an enormous debt wiped out yet still could not manage to forgive the debt of his own servant.
As Christians, one area that our narrow perspective has negatively affected has been the topic of sexual purity.
Sexual purity is unarguably a very important thing.
