Reader Says Like the rest of us, public figures need to keep their act clean

Like the rest of us, public figures need to keep their act clean.
.
Some definitions can help focus the mind.


.
Celibacy=The state of being single (a.k.a., unmarried).
.
Chastity=The state of avoiding committing sexually perverse or impure acts, whether one is married or celibate (single).
.
Continent=Stable in terms of holding
back from “the licit gratifications of marriage”, whether one is married or single (celibate).
.
The word “celibacy” is often mistakenly used to mean “a person that does not have sex”. This is incorrect – celibacy means to NOT BE MARRIED.
.
Chastity means to observe all laws relating to sexual purity given one’s state in life. So, married people are called to chastity within their marriage, even if they are having sex, because sex between married persons is obviously not sinful or against the law.
.
Finally, the word “continence”.
.
Continence means to abstain or “hold back” from “the licit gratifications of marriage”, that is, sex. So, for example, a person can be non-celibate, that is, married, but live in continence with their spouse, that is, abstaining from sex. Or, a person can be celibate (single), and maturely exercise continence by refusing to act out sexually.

  3. Learning to Name Sins Is to Have More Power Over Them

    Over the years we have steadily been losing the vocabulary of sin. Saying “I have sinned” is often replaced by “I made a mistake,” or “I made a poor decision,” or “I’m sorry if my behavior was hurtful in some way.”
    .
    Not only are we slow to say we have sinned, we are also ignorant of the subtleties of sin, in part because our vocabulary about sin is so limited. In this state we lose a certain advantage over sin because to name something is the beginning of isolating it and having increasing authority over it. When I can name something, I can focus on it and work on it. It moves from the realm of the abstract and theoretical to the real world.
    .
    The list below on lying is a work in progress. I am working on similar ones related to pride, sensuality, and the like; perhaps I will post these in the future. However, consider this a starting point of moving from an abstract notion of sin to something more real, more concrete.
    .
    There are not many people who will call themselves liars. Most will say, “I don’t tell lies—at least not big ones.” Lying and deceit come in many subtle forms, so don’t be so certain thatyou are free of the tendency. It’s hard to get far into this list without realizing that lying is alarmingly common to us, even if by other means and words. Don’t be discouraged; pick a few and work on overcoming them. Naming them gives us focus and power; by God’s grace, progress can be made by naming the demons that serve these evils.
