1st Corinthians 7:26Wrench


So I suggest that to stay a virgin is a good way to get through these distressing times.
I teach that it's good for people to live celibate, šŸ˜‡.


Note: Better to stay celibate if you can.
Sex makes many problems, even in the best of men.
Sex does not make your life better.
Even the most holy sex is like eating ice cream, drinking booze, or snorting cocaine.
It drags you down more than it lifts you up.
