hi, i am also still a virgin and i am 29 yrs old. We have the same conviction about purity. It is indeed a way to honor our God. Is this good? Yes it is. The bible is clear about God's stand on fornication. However, do not look to people for approval about your stand on purity. It is God that you wish to honor with this decision and not men right?

For twice I replied to this & wasn't put on. So the staff must be guilty of what I had to say.

This is a good choice.The bible says "Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will."I'm sure God wants you to be pure...

Dear girl, you are one of the people daring to be different in a world filled with a lot of compromise. I was a virgin until i got married and i have never regretted it. It feels good to be able to tell my daughter one day that i did, so she too can stand to honor God with her body. When we honor God , he rewards us and HE can trust us with great things like Joseph in the Bible. I am proud of you. May your life be beautiful.

If you tell people you are, they can think it is weird that you tell them. I suppose a lot of people who fornicate do not tell people. So, if you do otherwise, possibly ones would not expect to be told this, either. But it can be a good testimony, especially if people have been the first to ask. But advertising at the grocery check-out might distract people from reading the tabloid headlines (c: lolololololol
Well, if you have done well with keeping yourself, I would think a man who appreciates you would keep himself, too. But if he fails or has failed, honestly pray to do better. I don't think a Christian guy has a "choice" (c: Between him and God, God wants him to live pure > be your good example!!

While I would suggest that one keep oneself pure always, most women do not but relinguish their virginity to the one they are engaged to.
And what can be said of that? It would depict how satisfying or lacking thereof be of the sexual union.

I think you are entirely right in your choice. Follow the Bible you can never go wrong. God will honor your committment to His word and will. God bless you for your decision.

It is very very good but may I advise you not to be broadcasting this fact. A young lady disclosed such to her group of female students friends in a University. They afterwards revealed this to a group of young men who raped her. Be careful.

Good for you !! I admire you greatly for being so strong in the Lord and your faith and love for him that you will keep yourself pure as Christians are suspose to. I married at 16 and was a virgin but if I had not married until I was older I would have still kept myself pure as a Christian should and for my future husband. I think it shows that a person has a lot of respect for God, themselves,and their bodies,as you said,which are the Temples of God.

There are worse things than being a virgin at 25.
Most of them are being married to the wrong person.
Others are a string of failed marriages.

Makaya, in this sinful, perverted, evil, and wicked we live in, to people it is considered weird to be a virgin at age 25, but to the Lord, it is excellence, and remaining pure, not only for yourself, but also for CHRIST.
When I was your age, I was still a virgin, and I am a man. I am not ashamed, I am proud of it, and have no regrets.
Follow Christ, and do not let the world dictate to you as to what is weird, and what is noble.
Also, you are a good example to those who are younger, which they need to see.
PLEASE KEEP ON DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND BE WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST!

A 25-year old virgin is not rare. You have made an excellent choice as have many like you, both woman and men. People only think you are weird if you tell them you are a virgin. There is no need to bring the subject up in conversation unless it is with someone you plan to marry.
---KarenD on 11/3/11|
When I got married neither I nor my bride were virgins.
I CONSIDER THAT A SIN IN MYSELF - It would be wrong to accuse my bride of anything - that would be me 'casting the first stone', and I love her dearly
Keep yourself pure as long as it takes for God to give you a husband, however long that is.
God will honour that in you!!!
---Peter on 11/3/11|
This is very good and there is nothing "weird" about being a virgin when you marry. It must be tough on you from the view point of pressure from others, but just keep your eyes on Christ and you'll be O.K.
