In the previous video, I gave a message to Yume-chan of the Terrace House. This time, the message is for Toshiyuki Niino.

English translation of the text at the end of the video:
“Men, think about this: how would you feel if you invited a friend over to hang out with you in your home and he broke or damaged something? What if it turned out that your friend wasn’t trustworthy and had no regard for your most prized possessions? What if, after he came in, you realized that he just wanted to use your house for his own agenda? How would you feel? Angry? Betrayed? Self-protective? How many times would that have to happen before you would become leery or jaded about other potential “friends” coming over? Would you begin to distrust people in general if this repetitively happened?
This is how a woman often feels when a man has sex with her outside of the embracing commitment of marriage, and leaves her. She, literally, has trusted someone to come inside of her – into her being, the residence of her life. The man entered her body then left her – he took something from her, broke her heart, and devalued her by not honoring her with a true and lasting love. She not only grieves what has happened inside but is often taunted from outside as the previously trusted man slanders her name. This destructive behaviour feels like he’s ruining her “house”, staining, throwing aside, and destroying the treasure of who she is. This is profoundly violating.” (Purity by Design)
But there is another way, to honor and bless another person.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Starting in high school, Rae-Anna often dated casually and treated her heart casually, not understanding how or why to consistently walk in purity. When she came to know Jesus in a deep, real way in 2010, she came to understand God’s way for sexuality, and now wants to share about His wonderful ways so that everyone can know about it!
