Our Modern Society

Posted in Forum Post

In our modern society, there is a lot of media being promoted that goes against the beliefs of Christians. Beliefs such as abortion and premarital sex. These are touchy subjects for Christians and non-Christians alike. With the availability of social media it becomes easier for people to display their opinions on these topics making them become widely debated topics.

For the belief of abortion many believe that it is okay to abort the child because the fetus is unborn, and that it should be up to the woman if she chooses to keep it or abort it. However, abortion is a form of murder. The fetus is still a human being. The fetus may be unborn, but it is still living, it has a heartbeat. One of the ten commandants says, “Thou shall not kill”. Abortion is ending the life of a still developing human being. Which constitutes murder because you’re stopping the growth and life of a human being.

Society today also promotes premarital sex. A majority of the popular songs on the radio are about sex. Movies and television shows display teenagers having sex. All around us are influences promoting premarital sex. This to me is not okay. The bible says not to have sex unless you are married, and only with your partner. 1 Corinthians 7:1-5 states “Now concerning the matters about which you wrote: “It is good for a man not to have sexual relations with a woman.” But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband. The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband.  For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.”
