. “The maker of the world said, ‘It is not good for . . . man [or woman] to be alone’ (Genesis 2:18). He made us with this hole in our hearts to be filled. You have a Gentle Shepherd who desires the best for you, who wants you to make the right choices. In the long run, your decision is going to free you to enjoy sex the way it’s supposed to be. You’ll have a life that is free from fear of STDs, unwanted pregnancies, and, most of all, free from the emotional baggage that accompanies sex outside of marriage.”
