From this month’s issue of Relevant Magazine:
Eighty percent of young, unmarried Christians have had sex. Two-thirds have been sexually active in the last year. Even though, according to a recent Gallup poll, 76 percent of evangelicals believe sex outside of marriage is wrong.
I’m not sure where the first statistic comes from. Does that sound right to you? And if so… how does that affect what the church will look like in the next years? Why is the percentage so high?  Is it higher than it was 10 years ago (really)? What must we do to stop the trend? CAN we stop the trend? via Why more evangelical Christians are having premarital sex   Help me answer these questions!  Give your thoughts below… (Maybe we should just give every teenager a copy of these CD): Todd

A new study of teenagers shows America’s youth are reconsidering the morality of sex and embracing the value of abstinence before marriage. Half of the over 5,000 teens surveyed concluded that sex before marriage was “never” morally acceptable; over 70 percent rejected the practice of “living together” before marriage; and 61 percent confessed they would like to be a virgin on their wedding day. Furthermore, 63 percent agreed, “If I wasn’t a virgin and I could change the past, I would have sex after marriage.” via American teens: We want our virginity back. What do YOU think… do you buy it? From what I’m seeing (and I have three teenagers), I really don’t think 63% of non-virgins would say they would have taking a re-do and saved sex for marriage. As for the other stats… I’m doubtful as well. But… what do you think? Todd
