Sign the Purity Pledge

“It’s always interesting to me when people say, ‘I’m not gonna’ have sex until I really love the person.’ To me that’s kinda’ like saying ‘I’m not gonna’ rob the bank until I really need money.'”
-Amber Haskew, Day of Purity coordinator

I hate this time of year for two reasons:
1. I’ve never had a girlfriend.
2. People bombard me with the same question: “Jake, are you really still a virgin?”

That question sucks because I’ve always had to give the same answer: “Yes, I’m really still a virgin.” But this year’s different – I’m no longer giving that answer. From now on when asked that question, my response will be: “Not for long.” Now I say this, not because I’ve decided to “throw in the towel” and do it (sexual intercourse). Rather I say this because I believe it won’t be long before I’m married and am allowed to have sexual intercourse.

Before explaining my reason for believing this, before pointing out how to take a stand for purity, and before describing how we, as unmarried Christians, can prepare ourselves and our future spouse for marriage, before all that I want you to reflect on the following Bible verse:

“But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it’s better to marry than to burn with passion.”
1 Corinthians 7:9 NIV

fire

God selected my wife before I was born. He made her just for me and although He’s eager to bring us together, He’s waiting for the “perfect” time. But when is the “perfect” time? Well, according to 1 Corinthians 7:9 the “perfect” time is any time before a person’s sexual passion begins to burn out. Men and women begin to experience this at a different age. For instance, according to research, male sexual desire spikes at age 30. This means sexual passion begins burning out once a man turns 31. For woman, this happens at a different age but I’m not gonna’ get into that.

On September 1st 2015, I turn 31. This means the “perfect” time for me to get married is anytime between now and then, hopefully sooner than later. If this is true, and I’m reading God right, then before the end of the year I’ll be married and having sexual intercourse with a woman.

I can’t wait to get married. For twenty years my mom and I have been praying for God to provide me with a wife. And not just any plain-Jane wife. We’ve been asking God to give me a really really really beautiful Christian wife. A woman who’s interested in my favorite hobbies, likes to cook and eat my favorite foods, has pretty hair, is friendly, can sing like an angel and is someone who I’ll enjoy having sexual intercourse with all the time.

Marriage is gonna’ be so so fun, but only if she meets all my criteria. This narrows it down to . . . Julie W, a woman from my church, whom I believe God has chosen for me. I’m definitely keeping my fingers crossed and if I’m right then I’m gonna’ owe God big time.

Julie is perfect but there’s one problem – she’s currently dating Jeff, a Christian guy in her High school senior class. They both attend my church youth group so I see them all the time. However, the good news is a girl in her prayer group told me that Julie‘s gonna’ dump Jeff because she keeps finding weird porn on his phone. The rumor is he’s addicted and can’t help himself. Hopefully this is true and Julie dumps Jeff and marries me.

If Julie and I decide to get married I’ll need to prepare us both. To do this, I need to let her know I’m 100% pure and will remain so until we get married, at which time I’ll remain eternally faithful to her. This will let her know I’m available and serious. It’ll also motivate her to breakup with Jeff ASAP, and it’ll provide her with a sense of security, as she’s able to rest in the fact that she’s getting me.  So how and when am I going to do this?

February 14th is Valentine’s Day. At least it was until 2004, when Liberty Counsel replaced the morally bankrupt holiday with “Day of Purity.” Now, February 14th is a day for Christians all over America to take a stand for Purity. We don’t have to buckle under the pressure of our sexually perverse culture. Together, we can lock arms and fight back by letting our voices be heard. To accomplish this, on February 14th, I encourage you to:
1. Wear an abstinence shirt, a purity shirt, or a white shirt to represent purity.
2. Show your commitment to purity by signing the Purity Pledge (below).
3. Make a public declaration by posting online a signed copy of the Purity Pledge.
4. Encourage others by printing copies of your signed Purity Pledge and giving them to family, friends, churches, and future spouses.

Please follow my example. On February 14th I will be doing numbers 1-4 (above) and posting my signed copy of the Purity Pledge on my Facebook page and on Purity Project Facebook page. Also, on that day I will hand deliver a copy of my signed Purity Pledge to Julie, at her parents home. Hopefully, this will inspire her to sign the Purity Pledge which I’ll give her.

Before reading the Purity Pledge, I hope you’ll reflect on the following words of wisdom:

“You don’t need an outlet for sexual expression, you need more of God.”
Danna Gesh, author of Lies Young Women Believe, founder of Pure Freedom and Secret Keeper Girl

Purity Pledge 10

One last thing: The video below shows a young man making an ANTI-abstinence pledge. Please pray for him.

How has your life changed since you signed the Purity Pledge?  How has your relationship with your family, friends, church, and/or future spouse changed since you gave them a signed copy of the Purity Pledge? Did I leave something off the Purity Pledge? If so, send me a message – I don’t wanna’ leave any loopholes.

Happy Valentine’s Day of Purity,
Jake Z

    • I've never had a girlfriend because I've never met a girl I wanted to marry. That was until I met Julie W.

  1. I did sign the pledge, but I crossed off two items - dry humping and rimming. I can't really see that those things impact purity. I don't masturbate, and I have not done a threesome in 36 days. I intend to devote my life to Rick Santorum's 2016 campaign, despite his disgusting name.

  2. Praise, Brother Jake, Praise!

    I applaud your resolve not to give in to the so-called Pleasures of the Flesh, one of Satan's traps into which an old (good Christian) school friend fell. He indulged in unmarried sexual congress just once and has since changed race and has caught homogayness. I last saw him selling root vegetables into the pornography industry.

    Perhaps you could get your Pastor to bless some Holy Chloroform and use this to remove Julie from Jeff. I hear that the Creators Divine Will should come to her within a mere year or so in the Holy Cellar.

    All the best, Jake, and the prayers of both me and my normal same-race wife are with you.

  4. People can choose to have sex whenever they want. I don't care when you have sex at all, but if you tell a teenager that they're too young or whatever, you're messed up.

  5. You pray for bad things to happen to Jeff ? Why would a christian do that ? Regardless of sin we should forgive our brethren just like jesus did and instead try to offer salvation. Also I pray for you be because you have confused God's will with your own personal love. If it's meant to be , it will be by the right of God. It is a sin to be wishing evil upon your own brethren and a very disgusting sin indeed. If your marriage was made through such a sin it is very much tainted and against the will of God. I say you let things be and "let god"

    • Hey Doug,

      Thanks for your feedback. I understand your concerns but let me clear up the confusion.

      God has chosen Julie to be my bride. The problem is Julie is currently dating Jeff, a 17 year-old brat. After a little digging I discovered Jeff is addicted to online pornography. This was confirmed by one of my inside sources from church.

      Because of his addiction, I won't let Jeff manipulate Julie into marrying him. It would be no different than if I saw a drunk man beating up an old lady and I did nothing to stop it. I must step in and protect her.

      However, before taking this into my own hands I want to give God a chance. So I'm praying extra hard that He'll take him out for me. A reason I feel good about doing this is because Jeff is a Christian so if he dies he'll go to Heaven. And according to the apostle Paul, "For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain." (Philippians 1:21 NIV).

      Hopefully, within the year, Jeff will be in Heaven and Julie will be married to me.

      Following God,

      Jake Z

  7. I lost my virginity at 19, 2 years before I got married. My only regret is that I did not loose it when I was 15. I missed out on a lot of good sex.

    To those who follow my lead, just take the needed precautions. Always use a condom, and if you want oral sex, use a dental dam. If you are in a magnanimous relation ship, be sure your partner is on the pill.

    Enjoying a full and enjoyable sex life is natures reward for being alive. Sex is for fun.

    Pregnancy is an undesirable side effect of a full and enjoyable sex life.
