    book excerpt

    Few have traveled this path or charted a course that one could follow. After 27 years of celibacy, allow me to guide you into the disciplines of a celibate lifestyle, a season of abstinence or a quest for purity at any age. Aside from long-term goals of celibacy, these Ten Keys can guide the average person, living an everyday life, into abstinence and sexual purity.

    But striving for abstinence or celibacy does not mean you loose the capacity to sin. “We all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God”. But wrong thoughts will hasten temptation into your life. Thoughts can quickly become actions. “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” So your thought life is your first shield of defense. The word of God is your weapon to war against a wrong mindset. Although sexual immorality is not the only sin; it is possible curbing that desire may cause you to be more disciplined or less vulnerable in other areas.

    Avoid thoughts of condemnation. Be quick to forgive, particularly yourself. “Hast thou faith, have unto thy self before God. Happy is he who condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth.” And instead of brooding over those who sin against you, turn that bitter pill around and simply bless them every time those thoughts of anger emerge. Believe me its like pouring water on a match instead of fueling it. Just say, “Bless them!” Ironically it rather feels like a sneeze releasing impurities.

    You may be wondering while most of the world is preoccupied with the things you should avoid thinking on, what exactly should you think on? (KJV) Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
