In the Black community anyway?
If you ask 1 in 3 AA women, they would profess to being "saved". But if you also inquired, most would also have had a baby without being married. some would admit to not ever having being "in love" the child's father.Rather that the conception was a result of "recreational sex".
of course a moral line was drawn in not ever even having considered an abortion..
But is morality no longer on the shelf?
In the "old days" when a woman said she was "saved" it was reflected in her lifestyle, dress and the type of relationship she had with the oppostie sex.
Now, it seems the opposite is true.
Is it really such that "whatever I do.."God" knows my heart and thus..no body else had better say anything to me?
The community no expectations?
Are morals no longer preached from the pulpit?
Why don't we proclaim our innate dignity by our behavior?
Instead we seem to think all we have to do is holler; "I'm SAVED!!!"
