A4P Guest: Hi Missy, How are you doing? I want to ask you about a recent issue I’ve been dealing with. Long story short, there is this man I know from my church. He recently asked me for a relationship. I told him that I needed time to think before I give him a yes or no answer. Then we started hanging out just for a cup of tea because I thought that would help me to know him better. People from my church (my spiritual fathers) encouraged me to move with it (to accept his request). As far as I have noticed in this few weeks, he’s a good man and he always tries to take care of me. I haven’t seen anything wrong in his personality.

I love reading the Book of Proverbs! I really do!
But in reality, this book of the Bible is actually written to all people but particularly to young men.
Do you know that?
Whether a person steals a penny or one million dollar, his action is called a theft and he will be called a thief. A sin is a sin however you look at. There is no “one-sin” that is worse than the other. A sin is a sin! Period!
However, there is “one sin” that is different from all other sins.
Do you know that?
When we want to replace God, we tend to be nervous and restless all the time.
We go shopping but we don’t seem satisfied with the things we buy. We go out to have fun with others but at the end of the day, when we become alone, we get overwhelmed with this heart-wrenching and bone-crushing kind of loneliness and fear.
If you ask me what the number one enemy of a young man is, I will say, “His pair of eyes!”
What are some of the trivial reasons people get married for?
Are you single? Are you in the process of looking for that “perfect match,” a person who loves you to death, a person who cherishes and cares for you like nobody’s business?
A4P Guest: I am married and have two little kids. My husband and I had sexual problems and we went to church for counseling. I don’t know how I can tell you this, but in short, I am in a relationship with the person who counseled us. I am crying writing this because Missy, I don’t know how I got here. The person I have relationship with sometimes preaches in our church. He doesn’t care about anything. I now missed my period for three weeks. I know, I am pregnant and I don’t think it is from my husband. I feel suffocated. I don’t know what to do, where to go. If this thing comes into the open, many people will get hurt, including my children. Do you think it is a sin for me if I take Plan B now? I am scared. Have you ever heard stories like this before? Or, am I the first one? And do you think there is hope for me and my children?
A4P Guest: I’m 21 years old and I hear some people in my church saying that it is wrong for a girl to ask a man for a date. I don’t agree with that. It might be wrong in the first century because women didn’t even have a right to make their voices heard let alone ask a man for a date; but now, in the 21st century, I think there is nothing wrong with a girl asking a guy for a date. We all are equal, aren’t we? The question shouldn’t be who ask first but whether or not we like each other.
