Whether married or single — every one of us is plagued by temptations arising from the world, the flesh and the devil — to give into sin and sexual immorality. I want to specifically address why and how you as singles can and should commit whole-heartedly to live a life of purity and specifically a life of sexual purity. Protect your purpose in life by every proper means.
There's nothing more soul destroying than continuing to commit and try and fail when your heart and relationship with Christ pleads with you to walk well in the area of sex and relationships. When it comes to purity, too many have given up in pursuing the kind of life God invites us to, and that for our own good. The big problem is that giving up is the only solution when you don't feel progress in your life.

West explains how the devil takes what is most sacred and good and makes it profane through creating a distorted picture and offering it to the culture. This is why Satan particularly attacks woman: because in her bearing of new life she reveals the very mystery of God. Beginning with a study of the two Adams, West explains why the first Adam failed to love his bride rightly and turn to God for hope and healing, while the second Adam Jesus Christ loved his bride the Church rightly by giving up his life for her. West explains how the mission of every man is to lay down his life for woman, which will bring meaning and purpose to his life and give woman her due glory.
