Christopher's Inspiration for Respecting Women

Hi, this is Chris. I am here to talk to you about a very important thing to me in my life, which is chastity. Chastity is something I strongly believe in and I make it aware to all my friends and any girls that like me in that sort of way other than friends. I believe that you only get one gift of virginity and that’s it - once it’s gone, it’s gone forever. I want to be able to say to my wife on our wedding night that “I hadn’t even known you, but I loved you so much that I saved this for you,” and I can’t wait to see the reaction on her face when I tell her this. Your body is a temple of God and to follow this up, I have a passage from the Bible, which is a really good one that relates to this!!!

“Husbands love your wives, just as Christ loved the Church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the Church—for we are members of his body. ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.’ This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the Church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.” Ephesians 5:25-32.

Women are very precious and need love and kindness. Men shouldn’t ever disrespect women - they are God’s, not yours. Men, don’t ever pressure women into doing something that they don’t want to. It’s wrong and disrespectful. Women are God’s gift to men.
