Treating symptoms doesn’t cure

It’s a basic fact of medicine that just treating the symptoms seldom leads to a cure. It merely papers over the problem.

So, it’s no surprise that abstinence-only sex education programs in public schools don’t work. Trying to teach teens about abstinence without giving the Christian foundation necessary to understand why abstinence is good was always destined to fail. “Saving yourself till marriage” is pointless unless you believe that marriage is sacred. The health benefits, which are very real, don’t stand much of a chance when weighed against pleasure and peer pressure.
