A controversial auction to sell off a Brazilian woman’s virginity has come to an end Wednesday with six bidders confirmed as competing. The auction ended with a Japanese man winning with a final bid of $780,000.
This is tragic. Many young people these days fail to recognise the damage that they inflict on themselves and others as they plunder God’s gift. God is a Restorer and a Healer, but we must realise that all sin has consequences.
Suppose you had committed murder before you became a Christian and you repented. Do you believe that God would forgive you and cleanse you with the blood of Jesus? Of course He would. But does it bring that dead man back to life? No. Similarly, there is a physical price to pay for sexual sin – a price that society has scorned and lied about for years, and still does when it mocks young people who choose to remain virgins until marriage.
The whole of society, those trendy, sophisticated, artistic elitists, pour condemnation and ridicule upon any young person wanting to live a pure life. But I want to tell you, there’s time to draw a line in the sand and say: “Let’s help our young people understand and preserve the precious gift of virginity.”
