Yesterday, August 4, 2012, we were at EDSA Shrine. We joined the Prayer Power Rally to fight against the RH Bill. We were there. We made a stand. As young people, we are not indifferent. Instead, we believe that we can make a difference. We are fighting for life, for the Filipino family and the Filipino people. We are not losing hope on morality which is what will lead us to the best life ever. You’d say, what is morality? It is listening to the goodness within you and standing up for it. It is believing that it’s possible to be the best persons that we can be in our lifetime. It is doing what is right at the right time and in the right place. IT IS GOING FOR SAVED SEX. IT IS GOING FOR CHASTITY – the sure way to happiness (Blessed Pope John Paul II).
So what really is SAVED SEX?
We in the Live Pure Movement believe in the original design of sex, even before the sexual revolution began in the Western countries. Sex is not for mere pleasure. Sex has its proper time and place – that is within the context of marriage. People may not actually realize it, but when one engages in sex, he or she gives a part of himself/herself to the other person. There is intimacy happening, may it be mere physical or even emotional.
And so we go for SAVED SEX. It’s not having sex for us to be saved, but IT IS SAVING SEX FOR THE RIGHT TIME – when a man and woman is finally married. It is recognizing that as human beings, we have intellect and free will and that we can use these faculties to achieve SELF-CONTROL. SAVED SEX then is having sexual self-control in thoughts, words and deeds. SAVED SEX is going for CHASTITY. Yes, CHASTITY. It is not for the religious and the clergy only. Young people can go for CHASTITY. It boils down to one’s CHOICE to be CHASTE. This option may be unfamiliar or even obsolete for some, but IT STILL EXISTS. A human being is meant to live for so much more. He/she can choose CHASTITY. He/she can control his/her passions and desires, because when one he/she thinks otherwise, then it’s not far that these passions and desires will control him/her.
CHASTITY is the way to go. Old school, yes. But why not address the effects of sexual revolution with chastity revolution? When we save sex for the right time, we practice self-control and earn self-respect. We believe that we’re made for so much more than being slaves to our desires, than being promiscuous and being “cool” just because everybody is doing it.
And when we go for SAVED SEX, SAFE SEX is not an option anymore. Why risk having STD’s, HIV and AIDS when you actually can avoid it by not giving in to sex?Why go for what they say is “safe” when you know the real deal how to be really safe from diseases? That is only when you SAVE sex for the right time.
Insane? Difficult? Maybe. BUT IT DOESN’T MEAN THAT IT IS NOT POSSIBLE.
This is our stand: YES TO SAVED SEX. NO TO SAFE SEX. LIVE PURE.
