The Christian life is not, and cannot be, only about sexual purity.
I have been wrestling with this concept ever since I left college. After leaving the bubble known as a Christ-centered, liberal arts university, I began to wonder why the focus of being a good Christian was so often narrowly focused on one thing: our sexuality. Though I value virginity, I think that it is often glorified over more or equally important principles by which we should be living our lives for Christ. That “more or equally important principle” is what I want to focus on in my post today regarding holiness and sexuality.
About a week ago, I wrote an agonizing blog-post. Don’t look so perplexed, thinking that you missed something– I didn’t end up publishing it. In it, I talked about how God has taught me an invaluable lesson about ceaseless, faith-filled praying. But just today, I’m realizing that there is more to the lesson and so I’d like to talk about that instead.
So, cats have a lot to teach us. Up until recently, I would have qualified myself as a “dog person” simply because I do enjoy the company of furry, loyal, funny creatures (typically identified as a dog in our culture). However, I am now identifying myself as a “cat person” and I’ll tell you why: it’s because of the Cook’s cat, Meow.
