Quotes from Russell D. Moore

[some beautiful thoughts from his article, “Like, A Virgin?” on Touchstone Magazine.]

“It is good and necessary for us to teach our children sexual fidelity, the goodness and joy of chastity until marriage. But we must do so in a way that molds the next generation into the image of Christ, not into the image of the merciless Pharisees whom he opposed. Hearing our children pray, “Thank you, Lord, that I am not like that fornicator over there,” is not success. One can go to hell with virginity intact.

Thus, you are not ‘owed’ a virgin because you are one.”

“Those who have been forgiven must know that we stand in grace not because our sins are not there, but because Christ has made propitiation for them on the Cross. And not for our sins only, ‘but for those of the whole world’ (1 John 2:2).”

“The issue isn’t whether fornication is damnable; it is. The issue is whether damnation can be turned back, by Golgotha Hill Blood and Garden Tomb Life.”

“Jesus was a virgin. His Bride wasn’t. He loved us anyway.”
