"Slut shaming

According to the national news, young girls increasingly call others sluts. Of course the editor of Cosmopolitan magazine wants to reclaim the word, and to make it legitimate, as homosexuals did for the word gay. To her it just means a term for someone who is having more sex than you are. The man at the table said that when a man calls another man a stud, it is a compliment, implying slut should be seen in the same light.

As a boy I remember riding my tricycle and singing a catchy song called "Tennessee stud," about a horse " the color of the sun and his eyes were green." My dad heard me and said he never wanted to hear me sing that song again. Only after I was grown did I understand that sex outside of marriage is fornication according to the Bible, and forbidden for makes as well as for females. That is the Christian world view, which all Christians embrace. We may embrace it reluctantly because it goes against our personal preferences, but if we just follow our personal preferences then we set ourselves up as God.
In the west the teaching of the Bible on sex is increasingly rejected, yet even non Christians at least give lip service to the teachings of the Bible on forgiveness. In the Middle East the Biblical teachings on sex are for the most part followed, but the teachings of Jesus on forgiveness are routinely ignored. So God is above all cultures and his word, the Bible, calls sluts and chaste to both repent and to give our lives to Jesus Christ. This is the only time I have used the word slut, as far as I can recall, for it is not a good idea to insult anyone for any reason. I use the slut word again because it is necessary to use slut to get 5 references. Hopefully the slut in the tittle counts as one, otherwise this does, and I apologize to the reader for even using it once.
I am a bit sad that the Christian world view is rarely presented in the national news. This is no new phase in our history at all. The glorification of the self as the arbiter of all that is good has a long stale record in our country. Do whatever you do with passion and determination, writes a national company that I admire, by the way. But that slogan could be used just as well by Hitler. Of course it is terrible that girls call other girls sluts, or boys either for that matter. All people have worth and value and should be treated with respect. Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins, we are that valuable to him. He calls us to live for him. May each reader be supernaturally drawn to him, otherwise we cannot come to him at all and Christianity will remain a foreign entity.
