Sean Lowe, made famous by the reality television shows The Bachelorette and The Bachelor, was known as the Virgin Bachelor. But Lowe makes no apologies for his desire to wait until marriage to have sex with the woman he wanted to marry.
Recently, he spoke at Liberty University’s convocation and talked about how he challenged the lie that you have to sexually test out a partner before marriage in order to know if you have sexual compatibility.
A recent Gallup poll reported:
-80 percent of young unmarried Christians have had sex outside of marriage.
-Two-thirds of unmarried Christians have been sexual active in the last year.
-42 percent of the 18-29 year olds in the 80 percent group are currently in sexual relationships.
Yet, despite these statistics, 76 percent of Christians still believe sex outside of marriage is wrong. Apparently, there is a wide disconnect between what we believe and what we actually do. Why is this and how can live what we believe?
