Christian Quote #124: A Lie About Sexual Integrity Many Christians Believe

The fifth lie I’m going to talk about here is that if someone has saved themselves for marriage, they will fill that need in you for a perfect person.

And that hole, obviously as a Christian, you probably know is a hole for Jesus Christ. We were made for God. We were made to find our satisfaction in him, and when our relationship with Jesus isn’t central in our life, we have this need, this lacking, for that love that we can only get from Jesus. And we misplace that feeling on other people who try to look for that perfect person out there to fill that place in us that we’re looking for.
