While the backlash might be true for some subsets of evangelicals, according to the NAE poll, most Christians attributed their sexual activity to culture, followed by lacking a strong biblical foundation and "living in the moment."The Church is following secular culture opposed to leading by example Lisa Anderson, who is the director of Boundless, Focus on the Family's singles and young adults ministries, said that she was not surprised at Christians' high tolerance for premarital sex."Generally, if you look at the dating landscape in the church today, it looks very similar to that of the world.There's not a lot of distinction in the way people date [or] in the attitude toward dating and marriage," Anderson told CP.He also brought Gaga to his close friend Tommy Hilfiger's fashion show in Venice, California, on Wednesday, February 8.The “Million Reasons” songstress blushed and played coy when she was asked if she has any new men in her life during an interview with Ryan Seacrest on Thursday, February 9. News can confirm the "Born This Way" singer and talent agent Christian Carino are dating.
A majority of single Christians are rejecting biblical doctrine by choosing to have sex before they are married.When Heather Lindsey moved to New York City in 2004 at the age of 22, the Michigan native both attended church regularly and considered herself a Christian.While Lindsey grew up in the church, she said it rarely emphasized reading the Bible or one's relationship with God.Several years ago she got married and moved to Atlanta, where, now 31, she is the founder and CEO of Pinky Promise, an organization that encourages single and married women to "rise above cultural pressures and to "stay determined to live for Christ regardless of their circumstances."Only 11 percent of Christians are waiting until marriage before having sex While Christians may see Lindsey's premarital sexual behavior as typical for that outside their faith, a new Christian Mingle study suggests that it is increasingly commonplace for Christians to sleep together outside of a marital context.In a survey of 716 Christians released in January, only 11 percent said they save sex exclusively for marriage.
