Why more evangelical Christians are having premarital sex
Here is a surprising lede from Relevant magazine:
I’m not sure what I find more surprising: that so many evangelicals have had premarital sex or that only 76 percent believe its immoral. Probably the latter.
The entire Relevant article is worth reading here.
That is, no doubt, an important point. The longer one has to wait, the more difficult it is. It’s the reason that one of my college church friends used to say that if a guy at church was single, not married and not unusually weird, then he also wasn’t a virgin.
The question is what are the implications for churches and the U.S. Christian community? How should they respond?
