Chastity is a very important virtue of the Christian moral life. The disciple is obligated to confine genital sexual activity to marriage. But chastity is not the central virtue in the Christian moral life. Our central call is to love the Lord our God with all our heart and to love our neighbor as ourselves. Many times, our discussions in the life of the church suggest that chastity has a singularly powerful role in determining our moral character or our relationship with God.
It does not. Within marriage, sexual intimacy is a source of unity, joy and new life. At the same time, Scripture is clear about the destructive nature of promiscuity in any form. Of course, but not really. Bishop McElroy is correct that a whole range of virtues are required of the disciple of Jesus Christ, but does he really not understand that they are all interconnected and that chastity or the lack of it affects the spiritual and moral development of the whole person?
I may, of course, be misreading the Bishop. It is easy to do in this day when so many Bishops in the church issue statements that are ambiguous and mis leading. If I am misreading the bishop, I am happy to be corrected and clarification would be welcomed. I do wonder sometimes, do any Catholics read the Bible at all?
Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men,nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. Romans But excuse me for quoting the Bible. If I have erred in my questions here I hope others who know more will forgive me.
Source: Patheos This week we have an American bishop and Archbishop writing articles touching on the question of chastity. Chaput notes: On August 29, a group of prominent Evangelical scholars and pastors — including respected public voices like Russell Moore — issued the Nashville Statement, a public text dealing mainly with issues related to sexuality.
