SORT BY Relevancy
It's natural to desire to be in a relationship. And if you beliee in "happily ever after" then that's what you desire. And yet a lot of women, particularly black women, aren't coupled up. But why? Is the so-called shortage of good black men real or a myth? Have many black women given up on finding a good brother? Would they rather be single than date and marry interracially? And is this a viable option for black women? Can a woman be single, celibate and happy?
"Some black women choose to be single rather than settle, but rarely is this discussed as a real explanation for why some black women are unmarried," writes Angela Stanley, a researcher at the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at Ohio State University.

We'll hear Dionne Renae's story as to why she is, at 34, Young, Single & Celibate in the City. That's Thursday, April 30, 6:30pm ET on She Struts Radio. Tune in.
That is the true question. How many of you know a person or people that live life without sex? What would be the reason for that in the society that is weakened by lust. Join us as Brandy Michelle will discuss why she is celibate and how effects her life. Callers, let's get your spin on this. Could you be celibate and if not, why?
How to Live a Life of Celibacy
Whether you are entering the priesthood or doing it for personal reasons, remaining celibate can be a difficult thing to do. With these instructions and support from those around you (and perhaps a guide from above), you can lead a celibate life. Taking a vow to a life of celibacy is very challenging, and it is not an easy choice to make if the ones that are close to you are not supportive. There are benefits to a life of celibacy. If you find interesting things to do you can avoid the temptation to break your vow.
1.Make sure this is something you are very serious about. It can be a great thing if you are doing it for the right reasons.
2.Find a friend or mentor that has gone through this period in life and ask questions about his or her reason for making their choice.
3.Avoid listening to others' feelings about your decision, if they do not agree with yours. It is your choice and yours alone. Instead, talk to friends and people that will not judge you, or this choice you have made.
4.Get involved in different hobbies; better not to be around many people you may be sexually attracted to for a while if this can be avoided. You could become involved with some more spiritual or personal activities instead.
5.Try to find people who you think will understand you and your choices. Doing this alone can be very challenging. Tell them you need some moral support.
6.Avoid temptation, especially at the start of this lifestyle. Do not put yourself in situations that might lead to sexual activity, such as close quarters with someone to whom you are physically attracted. Don't spend time alone and secluded together unless you absolutely know that you can control of yourself in that situation.

It is a blessing to be able to live for God. The peace, wisdom, healing that comes along with the walk is amazing. However, christians go through life trials as anyone else does. This is more challenging when God calls us to a higher standard and guideline to walk in purity and holiness set apart from the world through faith in him.The enemy knows this and he definitely makes it that much harder because if he is an emeny of God, then what are christians considered to him as well?
Therefore, living single can be a major challenge as a christian especially these days. We are called to live celibate until marriage (or until death if we do not marry), but that is not a popular lifestyle these days. Being a christian does not exempt you from having desires to be physically intimate as some might assume. On the other hand, through experience I can tell you that nothing is impossible with the strength of God. Even though I did not follow what I was told growing up in church (for many reasons I have mentioned throughout shows), that does not mean that I am still not expected to walk in celibacy or that I cannot. So I hope that is hope for those who have walked astray in the past.
This show is for virgins and nonvirgins (teens and adults) because if you are single and a christian we are walking in this together. Yes, experiences vary from person person based on past experience with sex or lack there of, level of relationship with God, gender, age, culture, how one was raised, parental guidance and experience, whether never married/married before, whether it is a major struggle or it isn't, and more.
Philippians 2:15 "That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;"

Jesus was Married written by Ogden Kraut.

"Did Jesus ever marry?" This has been a disputable question sometimes arising against the popular opinions of today. Tradition has formulated an opinion, popular with modern Christians, that Jesus never married. Objectors to His marriage contend that He was not subject to the same laws, ordinances, or principles which are otherwise imposed upon the rest of mankind. Some oppose His marriage by purporting that marriage is sinful in its nature—that marriage involves a base, animalistic or sensuous practice, and that the union of the sexes is an evil regardless of the conditions. Thus the popular consensus prohibits Jesus from complying with the ancient law and practice of marriage. Christianity today teaches a celibate Christ. The reasons for believing in the marriage of Jesus, rather than in celibacy, are more logical, and to a great degree more valid, through the light of prophecy, history, and revelation. However, those who make reference to or boldly assert that Jesus was married will usually arouse a cry of "blaspheme" from the modern Christian. Despite the popular opinions and the pious modesty of our society, a careful investigation may prove interesting, if not advantageous, in the quest for an answer to this relevant question.

“Beware of letting your natural desires hinder your walk in love before God. One of the cruelest ways to kill natural love is through the rejection that results from having built the love on natural desires. But the one true desire of a saint is the Lord Jesus. Love for God is not something sentimental or emotional— for a saint to love as God loves is the most practical thing imaginable.” ~ Oswald Chambers
"A.C.E." Abstain? Celibate? Entertain? We all have “been there done that” testimonies. We have all had to face this at one time or another, especially if you are 25+ - 60+++, been married before or hasn’t been “born again.” And if we’re single and were looking to be married, during that 40 year period, this dilemma has followed us into and out of many, if not all of our relationship attempts at pursuing matrimony.
Sometimes we do, sometimes we don’t. Sometimes we will, sometimes we won’t. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t! I have said many times that premarital sex is a no-no. I have to because it is in The Word of God. God will forgive us if we falter; but how do YOU feel after you’ve “given your all”, they ‘took it’, and it didn’t work out? Disappointed? Brokenhearted? Betrayed? Guilty? Abandoned and lonely again? So now what? SMH You do it all over again, expecting a different outcome? #Insanity

sex its everywhere. Ive had so many different letters in about sex so i chose to make this show a viewers choice episode. to me sex is a choice. No one says u have to do it at all! i feel if u choose to be abstinent or celibate thats your own personal reason no one should judge you by that. Eeryone timing is different. Sex doesnt make a person at all!. They could be great sexually but mentally fail!.
