Do not let anyone fool you. There is a whole world out there that wants you to believe that you are driven by forces beyond your control. You are destined, they say, to act as you do because of your DNA and your upbringing. How convenient. That means that none of us really have any responsibility for our actions. But we do.
Like all lies, this one will not pass the test of universal application. Murderers are slaughtering innocent people all over the world. They are chopping the hands off children, raping young girls, beheading innocents. Do they have a choice? Of course they do. Only crazy people would say otherwise.
You have the power to choose too. For instance, you can choose to say no to sex before marriage and outside of marriage. You can. Your choice will make you part of a minority, true. You’ll never hear a pop song about how great it is to wait. But you will live with the quiet dignity of those who live in truth, not in a lie.
