If you have lust in your heart while you are watching pornographic movies or masturbating, then there is sin there. While the idea of "born-again virgin" may seem a little like "technical virgin," it is not the same thing.Many Christian teens that have already had sex choose to act as if they have never had sex and vow to wait until marriage. God is very forgiving, and He smiles at those who return to Him with a desire to do His will.
If you are in love it does not mean you should have sex. You should never feel like you have to have sex with someone just because you want to show them you love them. However, it is dangerous to think that sex is a minor or equal sin to all others because it can put you in a frame of mind to make bad choices.A lot of people believe that pornography and masturbation are helpful in preventing a person from having sex.However, having sex is not just about the act, but it is about the frame of mind. While the media and people in school may make it seem like everyone is having sex, there are just as many Christian teens (and non-Christians, too) waiting until marriage.When you stand up to peer pressure you are actually saving yourself from committing sin while being a good Christian witness to other teens around you. Ask any Christian teen who struggles with having had sex before.While the temptation for someone who has had sex can be even stronger than the virgin, it can be overcome with God's help.
