Christian Abstinence Rings
The idea of Christian abstinence rings is something that I personally don’t quite understand. If you are truly living as a Christian then
you know that you are to refrain from sin. You know that there will be certain things that you will have to give up.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God,
which is your reasonable service.
So if you are truly living according to the doctrine of Jesus Christ, then your conduct, character, and commitment will automatically
cause you to practice abstinence if you are not married.
1 Thessalonians 4:3
King James Version (KJV)
For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
So if you are truly sanctified then you should not need to wear a Christian abstinence ring, it should already just be part of you are as a
single Christian. If your mate is also truly sanctified then it should just be understood. When and if you decide to get married then you
will give each other the gift of a wedding ring, which is the only ring that you need.
If you want a Christian abstinence ring then it doesn’t necessarily mean that you are not a true Christian but just know that being
Christian goes much deeper than what you wear on the outside. It is the same as wearing a cross in the sense that just because someone
is wearing a cross doesn’t mean that they are a true Christian. It is about how you live your life and how you apply the word of Jesus
Christ to your life.
As I said before I personally think it is a silly idea, but if you want to wear a Christian abstinence ring as a symbol of your abstaining
from fornication then go for it.
