Reader, has anyone reading this article, notice that the latest trend among some of Hollywood's most famous Christians, are "The born-again virgin claim?"I always thought once an act is done, it's done. It is, therefore, not possible to claim physical born-again virginity, just as it is not possible to reverse the consequences of any other sins we commit.
Anyhow, the born-again virginity is the claim that after having sex, a person can be restored to virginity by a spiritual renewal, vowing sexual purity until marriage and asking God for forgiveness. In the last couple of years, we have had Megan Good & Devon Franklin, Ciara & Russell Wilison and now Actor/singer Tyrese and his new wife.
Actor/singer Tyrese recently revealed during a promotional tour for his upcoming film The Fate of the Furious that he and his new wife, Samantha, are Christians, and that they became born again virgins before they got married.
According to reports, some women have taken the idea of born-again virginity so far that they actually have had surgery to physically restore themselves to a "virgin" physical-sexual state.
The pressure upon some Christians to become "born-again virgins" is likely due in large part to the fear of condemnation from Christian brothers and sisters, or perhaps fear that God will not accept them unless they take steps to become "born-again virgins."
Neither of these reasons should be a concern because God offers forgiveness and grace to all who ask with a sincere heart (1 John 1:9). We need not try to restore for ourselves what God has already restored in us spiritually.
