Southern Baptists (who don’t TRULY support sexual purity) Announce 2014 Sex Summit

Southern Baptists (who don’t TRULY support sexual purity) Announce 2014 Sex Summit

I was watching a Christian TV show that said there is an upcoming Sex Summit planned.

I have found several links about the event (which I have put in the post much farther below).

I assume they mean Christians are going to gather at this thing to talk about how to combat porn and what not.

One wonders if all spokes persons at this shin dig will be married Christians who are having sex, or if they will actually come up with celibate adults who are over 30 to contribute to this thing, in any way?

I, a virgin who is over the age of 40, never married, don’t really appreciate being lectured to about sexual ethics and issues by a married guy who is banging his wife weekly and/or who is probably looking at porn (a lot of married preachers are porn addicts), or having affairs (another problem with a lot of married, Christian men, see this link for examples).

I am over 40 and have stayed a virgin this long without any support from Christians, preachers, churches, or Southern Baptists.

These Baptist jack holes are NOT sources of authority on sex or sexual purity, as they do NOT support Christians who are celibate and single over the age of 25 – 30, and so, they should shut up about these topics.

Until or unless a church or denomination is ready to offer regular and concrete, emotional, spiritual, and financial support to celibate adults who are over 30, they need to shut up about the evils of fornication and all these related topics – S.T.F.U.

Southern Baptists and many other denominations and churches do NOT support sexual purity or virginity, in that they do nothing to support celibate adults, those who are actually living celibate lifestyles.

If anything, we celibate adults get shamed by other Christians for being virgins, for NOT being married and for not procreating.

We older virgins are told by Southern Baptists and other Christians that we are not as mature as married parents, we are suspected of being homosexual, and receive all manner of other put downs and negative assumptions.

Mature celibates get lectured by Christians on their stupid blogs or pod casts that we are “prideful” about being virgins (when we are no such thing).

Southern Baptists, Reformed, Fundamentalists, and Evangelicals ignore adult,celibate adults and at that to support marriage and married couples. They have turned marriage and having children into IDOLS.

You cannot be consistent and say on the one hand you think sex is for marriage only, but then turn around and tell fornicators that their sexual sin is no big deal, and that people who are over 30 and still virgins, are “prideful,” or are “fetishizing virginity.”

You can’t have it both ways, but that is exactly what Southern Baptists and other conservative Christians are doing on topics pertaining to sex.

Baptists and other conservative Christians say from one side of their mouth that you should stay a virgin (until you marry), but when you are still single and still a virgin at age 30 or older, they shame you and insult you for being a virgin.

Married couples, yes, even Christian ones, engage in sexual sin.

Will this Baptist-hosted sex summit be mentioning the staggering numbers of married Christian men who admit to being pornography addicts (see examples)?

Will the summit discuss married preachers who have affairs, fondle children, and who use prostitutes (see examples and see more examples)?

Here’s a link or two about the sex summit:

(Link): Southern Baptist Leaders to Host Sex Summit

I have not yet read that page.

I’m going to guess that either:

1. There will be lip service paid to virginity and sexual purity by the Baptists in these articles (but what goes un-said is that they only support virginity for people under the age of 25; they expect everyone over 25 to fornicate, so they tend to look the other way when adult singles fornicate);

or,

2. Somewhere, their mission statement will say they are trying to downplay the importance of virginity / sexual purity, so as not to cause offense to, or shamed feelings among, fornicators.

What a freaking joke.

Notice that, according to the reports below, the Southern Baptists will only be addressing “Teen sex.” There is no support or mention of adult celibates (i.e., post age 30 celibates / sexuality). None.

This only further proves my point that Christians only believe in virginity and sexual purity for people under the age of 20 / 25.

To any teens reading this, you might as well have sex prior to age 25, since once you get to age 25 and after, Baptists no longer care if you’re having sex, how often, and with whom (as long as it is hetero fornication).

If Baptists do address fornication, they are sure to reassure the adult (past age 25) fornicators that Jesus loves them anyhow, and they are not saved by their virginity (sexual sin is downplayed).

So really, with this Baptist, evangelical, fundamentalist, and Reformed attitude that sexual sin is no biggie past your mid 20s, I don’t see why it’s so problematic for the under mid 20s set, as in teenagers. (Barring the naive nature of teens, which makes them dupes and easy prey for sexual predators.)

Here are excerpts from the page:

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. January 27, 2014 (AP)

    Southern Baptist Convention leaders are hosting a summit in Nashville that will focus on sex.

    The topics will range from pornography, teen sex, homosexuality and how pastors can talk to their congregations about human sexuality.

    Russell Moore, Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission president for the Southern Baptist Convention, says the summit’s theme is a timely one.

    Panel topics include discussions on the gospel and homosexuality and the gospel and ministry in a sex-saturated world.

    The sessions will also focus on how the “gospel shapes a person’s sexual identity, redeems sexual desire and sets free people held captive by sin.”

    The summit will be held from April 21-23. The event’s main sessions will be streamed live on the Web for people who cannot attend.

Russell Moore does NOT support sexual purity or virginity, see this post:

Excerpt:

    Russell Moore, Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission president for the Southern Baptist Convention, said the summit’s theme is a timely one. “So many of the questions that pastors grapple with today deal with situations that would not even have been possible a generation ago,” Moore said in a press statement.

    “As technology advances and the culture changes, the questions that we have to grapple with are often increasingly complex.”
