Re: Chaplains Corner
After church one Sunday, a lady's young son asked, "Mom, what's a virgin?"
Oh, no, she thought. The time has come. So with great care, she sat down with her son and calmly explained the facts of life in great detail, as she had already prepared herself to do in the exactly proper manner.
When she finished, he exclaimed, "No, Mom, not that kind of virgin. I was talking about the King James Virgin."
There are many today that do not know what the King James Version is, and they do not care enough to find out. There are many that ACT as though they do not know what a Virgin is either, although they know full what it means. In the past, this was a VERY important matter, and accusation of NOT being a Virgin were taken very seriously indeed:
Deuteronomy 22:13-19 (King James Virgin);
"If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her, And give occasions of speech against her, and bring up an evil name upon her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid: Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel's virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate: And the damsel's father shall say unto the elders, I gave my daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her; And, lo, he hath given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter's virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city. And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise him; And they shall amerce him in an hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father of the damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days."
We need to return to some core values in this country, and in the world. The ‘if it feels good, do it!’ philosophy has done a LOT of damage to our basic moral fiber, and this trend MUST be reversed for the sake of the upcoming generations!
The Ten Commandments is a fine place to start.
Thou shalt not commit adultery.
