This is a public Vow of Purity that I expect myself, and others, to hold me to. I do not know who my wife will be, but I do know that despite not knowing her, I want to give her everything I can. She deserves respect, she deserves a Godly man.  I pray for everyday, I pray that she may be become the person God wants her to be, I pray that God does not give me her until we are both ready. I pray that she will be a blessing and be blessed. I pray she have a heart full of God. I pray that God is with her everyday. I pray that she is surrounded by love. I pray many things for her. I want to give her everything that I can, this includes my purity.

  • I will not see anything that will compromise my purity.
  • I will not hear anything that will compromise my purity.
  • I will not say anything that will compromise my purity.
  • I will not do anything that will compromise my purity.
  • I will not put myself in any situation that will compromise my purity.

This means, that I will put in any and all effort I can to keep myself pure.

  • I will refrain from watching movies with crude humor, nudity, and language. In short, I will remain myself from Rated-R movies.
  • I will refrain from being around those that speak impurity. I will not allow their words, influence my thoughts.
  • I will refrain from watching TV shows with content that will influence my thoughts in an impure way.
  • I will refrain from listening to music that is impure.
  • I will refrain from anything that makes me more acceptable to impure thoughts.
  • I will refrain from anything that will, even in the slightest way, comprise my purity.

Not only will I keep myself from impure thoughts, but I will do my best to keep others from impure thoughts about me.

  • I will refrain, as best as I can, from wearing clothing that will cause impure thoughts from those around me.
  • I will refrain, as best as I can, wear articles of clothing, keeping my body covered.
  • I will refrain, as best as I can, from doing anything that may make it easier for others to cause impure thoughts towards me.

I understand that at times this is going to be tough. I understand that by myself I cannot fulfill this vow, but I will at all costs do my best. I understand that there will be times that I will fall. I understand however, that through Christ’s death I am made pure again. I understand it is only through Christ that this can be accomplished.

  1. WOW…and you weren’t coerced into this either. My respect for you goes higher daily, friend. God bless you–and keep you pure in Him!

  2. All I can say is WOW…and you weren’t coerced into this either. My respect for you goes higher daily, friend. God bless you–and keep you ever pure in Him! And help us all–it is a lifelong process–and did I mention he is 20 years of age and in a secular college setting–AND a Minnesotan??? Christian women line up, this one is a catch…

    1. Thank you very much. I just do not want to become tolerant to the things of todays world, and I want to stay pure. Pure for myself, pure for God, and pure for my future wife.

      haha well I don’t want a line of women, that’s to much of a headache. I just want the right one, and I am willing to wait as long as I need to for her. Good things take time.

      God Bless!

  3. This is so awesome, Joshua! I am so proud of what you’ve done and vowed. In our culture, many people take purity lightly and it doesn’t mean much to them. Thanks for being an example to young Christians everywhere! I join you in this vow!

    1. Thank you Sarah! I take my purity very seriously, but I am often side tracked. In writing this Vow I am much more aware of my actions, and how the actions of others reflects upon me. It is my goal to give the best I can to my future wife, and I believe one of the most beautiful things that I could give is my purity.

      Thanks! God Bess!

  4. Hey Joshua,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. It’s such a blessing to see young people living for the Lord. At age 16 I made a similar pact with God it wasn’t written down as nicely as yours, it was more in my heart (we didn’t blog back then lol) but it worked nonetheless. God blessed me with a husband, we were BOTH virgins when we got married and we continue to see the benefits of purity in our Family 16 years later. Keep pressing. Keep striving to glorify God with your stance and lifestyle. I know it’s not easy but It’s definitely worth it!

    1. Hey,

      Not a problem, and thank you for checking my blog out and commenting!

      Yeah, I feel one of the most powerful ways of stripping our heart from God is by not staying pure. I will continue to do my best to stay pure and living for God.

      Thank you, and have a great day! God Bless!
      Joshua
