“If you remain pure, God will bring you the perfect man for you.”
We’ve made purity into a math equation: If I uphold purity, God will give me what I want.
We first hear this message at fourteen. It’s harmless; just the hopeful anticipation of a purity pledge. But at twenty-five – when we’ve followed the check list, obeyed the rules, done the courtship thing – and the ‘promise’ remains unfulfilled? This is when good girls rebel.
Because for the past thirty years, purity has largely been taught with flawed theology.
