The following blog “Who Really Stays Pure?” on Joe Dallas’s website: “Sexual purity for the Christian is a mandate, goal and achievement. It’s a mandate because it’s expected by God and reasonably so; it’s a goal in that we strive towards it, and an achievement when we both attain and then maintain it. It’s also a way of being and living that runs contrary to so much of what we’re exposed to daily.”

“The fact that we’re sexual creatures with natural responses can be enough of a struggle, but add to that the ongoing stimulation of billboards, immodestly dressed women and men, suggestive content on television ads and countless other stimulants, and the goal of a pure mind and body can seem like Quixote’s Impossible Dream – lofty, but virtually unreachable.”

“So does anyone really reach it? Sure, frequently and in large numbers. So who are these saints who learn to abstain from porn, fornication and adultery, and manage to rein in their lust when it goes into overdrive?”

“Well, they’re nothing special. In fact, they have a lot in common with those who give up and who give in to lust. They struggle; they feel and desire; they experience every frailty and yearning that goes with the title Human. But they do share three traits I’ve seen repeatedly over the years. And when we want to achieve something, who better to emulate than those who’ve achieved it already? With that in mind, let’s look at a trio of qualities found in people who both attain, then maintain, their sexual integrity.”
