Flashback to my early twenties and the eager Christian girl I was. Eager to be uncompromisable, undaunted, but more than anything, untouchable. I had a list of things I’d never do; a list I adopted from mentors, friends, teachings, and the Word of God. I would never drink. I would never cheat or steal. I would never have sex outside of marriage. The list went on. I put the possibility of ever compromising or giving in to these temptations completely out of my mind. “I would never” and so I rarely thought about those sins on my list. Why do anything to guard against a sin I would obviously (in my mind) never commit? This was my biggest mistake.
