The Average {Teen Girl}

TPG_AverageGirl

So today I used the good ole handy-dandy Google Search and typed in “Number one question asked by teen girls”.  The feedback absolutely sickened me.  Website by website, I found that all of the questions had one thing in common.  I was startled, even though I shouldn’t be, considering the high rate of teen pregnancies.  Here is the top question asked by teen girls:

How do I know when I’m ready for sex? 

READY?!  WHAT?!  I was shocked!  So now, instead of wanting to know what color eyes guys prefer, the average teen girl is wanting to know something such as that.  Let’s get something straight here, girls: We will never be ready until there is a wedding ring on our finger.  Not a promise ring, not an engagement ring– a WEDDING ring.  I am honestly embarrassed for the teen girl population.  Can’t we just be patient?  Why are we having to even put this into thought?  God clearly says in His Word that it is not good for a man to touch a woman {read 1 Corinthians 7 KJV}.  “But the Bible never says that a woman can’t touch a man!”  Away with your ignorance– We can’t touch a man without him touching us back.  In 1 Corinthians 7:2, it says that the reason for this was “to avoid fornication”.  Fornication: Sexual intercourse between two people that are unmarried.  God has said countless times in the Bible that fornication is a sin. 

A few days ago, I was on the internet and saw something that provoked me to really think about this subject.  You see, we are always going on and on about how ridiculous Adam and Eve were for eating of that ONE tree that God asked them not to eat of.  Why couldn’t they have just eaten of any other tree?  Why couldn’t they have just waited, and obeyed God?  God is wondering why we aren’t willing to do the same.  God gives us so many blessings in life– and all we want to focus on is what we either can’t have, or shouldn’t have.  Why can’t we just wait, and obey God?  Why can’t we focus on something else?  Premarital sex is a sin against God, just like eating the fruit of that tree in the Garden of Eden was.

In today’s world, there are so many things perverting our minds.  I think that it is safe to say that most movies that are released today aren’t appropriate for a Christian to watch.  The world’s music is filled with language, and sexual statements.  Things are not getting out of hand, things are out of hand– teenage pregnancies are getting more common every day.  Teen pregnancy is the number one reason why teen girls drop out of school in America.  25% of American teen moms will end up pregnant again before the end of 24 months.  “Safe sex” is not the use of birth control methods, it’s having a wedding ring on your finger.  It is ridiculous to see these TV shows glamorize teenage pregnancies like it is a walk in the park– and to think that Christians would watch such a thing.  It is the Devil’s tool to persuade us into thinking that teen pregnancy should be normal.

My challenge to you, and to myself, is to not be a statistic.  Instead of asking a question for wanting fleshly desires, ask a question for wanting spiritual growth.  The negativity in America today is a discouragement to people everywhere.  We as Christian girls should do whatever it takes to change the tides, and change average into something positive.

Don’t be the average teen girl. 

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” 

~ Romans 12:2
