unmarried people at such our discussion covers all your life before the “Yes I
Do”. We have heard and got so many ideas on the issue of virginity, as a matter
of fact the term virginity is not a new topic in the church but for emphasis
and necessity shall we be considering some few issues on the topic.
virginity is streamlined to the feminine gender with the issue of an
un-ruptured hymen in the sexual organ which i shall not be boring you with.
Although virginity has being streamlined to the female man in the medical line
and in the popular believe we shall be digressing a little from that opinion by

Virginity literally has to do with
absolute abstinence from sexual activities of any sought (mind you it’s before
marriage). And as a man of valour or lady of integrity, it’s necessary to keep
your body and all your parts under perfect control as clearly stated in romans
12; 1 aside from that they are some benefits you may not be able to enjoy from
God when defiled sexually.
Taking David and Ahimelech the priest as a case
study (sacred bread) and a whole lot more like in 1 Thessalonians 4;3 where
Gods will is clearly stated against sexual immorality.Practically they are other
benefits of being a virgin like for instance its being medically proven to be

spiritual act of worship”.

missed it either as a result of ignorance or deliberate mistakes but have
acknowledged their mistakes and are willing to make amends because God is an
ever willing to forgive God and whoever he has forgiven is forgiven indeed.
For those who choose to misuse his mercy be aware that we can’t continue in sin
that grace may abound.
There is judgment!
