Purity Rings


Dear Brother Ron

What are purity rings all about? I understand them but what can you not do and say? Is it just about abstinence? Also can you decide you want one or do your parents have to give them to you?

Stacy


Dear Stacy
A purity ring is a daily reminder of the covenant you have with God to stay pure until He provides us with a spouse and at the same time it tells the world that we are waiting on God's plan and that there is no compromising. Basically, it is a visible sign that you have made a commitment to follow the voice of God within you.

Since this commitment must come from within, the decision to wear one should be yours, not the decision of another. Although the ring is mainly about abstaining from premarital sex, you should also keep in mind the words of Matthew 5:16. "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."

I often hear from those who have rejected Christianity because of the hypocrisy of those who claim to follow Christ. If you decide to wear such a symbol of devotion, you should make all of your actions an example of the creed you claim to follow.

You can't just talk the talk. You have to walk the walk.

Best always
Brother Ron
