“you were not created for good sex. no, God created you for great sex.”
So I went to this panel discussion my college was holding last weekend called GPS (Growth.Purpose.Spirit or something) I must also mention that I go to a Christian college.
Anyways, so they had 3 panelist. A young lady. A young man. And an older lady who specializes in relationships (like she’s a doctor or a psychologist or something).
So the topic was “benefriends”. (friends w/ benefits)
The moderator of the discussion started by showing us (the audience was probably like 70+ people) statistics of the # of people having pre-marital sex in “the world” versus in “the church”.
I think one of the slide said it was 80% of Christian young adults vs. 88% of non-Christians are having pre-marital sex (or something like that).
so anyways. the panel answered questions about this topic. whether or not we should expect “better” from Christians. whether of not it’s even realistic to expect that we all still “save it for marriage”. etc. etc.
and the discussion was actually pretty interesting. at the end, they even gave a chance for the audience to ask questions.
anyways. the most riveting part of the discusion was when the young man on the panel said something to the effect of this - this is as close to a direct quote as i can get (i believe he was answering a question):
That statement he made was one of the single most profound statements I’ve ever heard in my life. PERIOD.
Before you continue to read my blog, really think about the above bolded statement.
Now that you’ve paused to reflect, let me continue on.
I’ve also extended it to mean that I wasn’t created for a mediocre relationship. you see, i’ve been complaining to my friend lately that i just want to be one of those girls that dates around.
you know. one of those normal college people.
but the thing is, i really don’t desire that.
i’ve always prayed to God that i didn’t want to just get into any pointless relationship.
so, by my own mental extension of whateverness, i’ve finally settled on this idea.
i was not created for a good relationship.
i was created for a great relationship.
one with purpose
with love as the goal.
