Living in Sin is not a New Thing

December 9, 2009

It is, however, remarkable that a fairly new Britney Spears track (that one hears constantly on the radio if one has not glued one’s radio dial to the classical music frequency) about a particular sexual perversion contains the line: “Livin’ in sin is the new thing” as well as the claim that “What we do is innocent Just for fun and nothin’ meant.” It’s really not. Sexual union is only appropriate within marriage. Living in sin is nothing new, but it’s also nothing good. Far from being innocent, it produces guilt in the participants: not subjective guilt in the form of feelings of guilt (though it may), but objective guilt in the form of being under the wrath and curse of God. At least, however, Ms. Spears recognizes that what she is promoting is sin. Perhaps others will also note that and repent.
