On Monday I told you about the horribly awkward conversation I suddenly found myself in with the teenage boys at church on Sunday. Last night I saw the boys again. You know how they always say you should never feed a stray dog because it will keep coming back for more? THAT.

Note: Boy 1 in this conversation is the most pure and adorable child I have ever seen (and he looks like he's about 10 years old).

Part II of a Conversation with Teenage Boys about Chastity:Boy 1: Brother Eli, I have to tell you what happened on Sunday RIGHT after church.Eli: Yeah? What happened?Boy 2: He broke the chastity all day.Eli: WHAT?!
Boy 1: [nodding] And boy 2 tried to stop me because I'm only barely 14 and the girl is 17. Eli: I . . . uh . . . would you like . . . to talk about it? Boy 1: We went to a girl's house and then everybody is falling asleep but me and her. And that's when we started . . . [raising eyebrows, looking around, and whispering] DOING IT. Eli: OH MY GOSH I AM SO ILL PREPARED FOR THIS! Boy 2: I knew what they were doing so I yelled at her that he is only 14 and what is she doing because she is 17! Boy 1: But we were doing it for a while before anyone tried to stop us. It was my first time in my whole life doing it. And brother Eli? I kind of liked it. Eli: Uh . . . so when you say "doing it," what do you mean? Boy 1: Like, the kissing stuff. We kissed on the lips three times for one second. Eli: OhthankthegoodLord. Boy 1: But my guilt temptated me so I decided we shouldn't kiss anymore. Eli: Ok. It's good to set boundaries for yourself . . . and . . . [a string of other things Bob and Cathie have said]. Boy 1: Then I went back the next day to tell her about chastity like we talked at church and I told her all the words like fornication and whore and the other words I saw when I looked up chastity in the Bible. Eli: Wait. What? What did you tell her? Boy 1: I told her that there's chastity and I don't want to be fornication and whore and intercourse and pornomography. Eli: I honestly can't decide right now whether or not I'm doing a good job here . . . Boy 1: It will be so hard though. Because my soul wants love and the chastity but it can't be both. Eli: Preach, brother. ~It Just Gets Stranger
