“I Owe It To Him”

If a girl thinks she owes a boy sex (it is rarely the other way around), it is because he wants her to think that. Otherwise, she would know by his words and actions that he cares for her regardless of how she responds. He either cares for her and acts in a loving and respectful way, or he is concerned about himself and acts in a manipulative way.

It all comes back to the dignity of each person and how our world view influences our actions. To treat people with dignity is to show them God’s love by our actions. The Christian world view is not compatible with manipulation; manipulation indicates people are there to be used, not loved. God’s love longs to give, not get.
