The heart's viriginity

"Everyone is looking out for the "big nasty" and attempting to avoid the act of sex at all costs. You have to realise that purity is not only about external actions; it is not just about heavy petting or a date gone too far. Purity is about the heart. We learn from the life of Samson that it is possible to compromise your purity without so much as touching anothe person. You can pollute your heart in a pretty clean setting or a seemingly sanctified atmosphere. As a pastor, my primary concern is not whether you lift your hands during worship and take notes from the sermon. I'm not going to inspect your hands to see if they are clean. I want to be sure that you have a pure heart."
Guard your heart. (Extract from Dating Delilah Judah Smith pg 136)
