Is it ok for a person to do whatever they want to do? Are there any things you can do which are wrong? You might get the impression from the growing list of things which were previously considered wrong but which by today’s standards seem perfectly fine that “doing wrong” will soon become a meaningless concept. It is starting to seem like the only thing a person can do which is wrong is to hold an opinion that something is indeed wrong. Then that person will likely be labeled insensitive, intolerant, hopelessly conservative, or a hated bigot. Following is a link to an article by one of my favorite apologetic authors, Ms. Amy Orr-Ewing. In the article she addresses just one issue , pre-marital sex, which was formerly considered wrong but is now so commonplace that not having sex prior to marriage is considered unusual.
Amy Orr-Ewing is Training Director of RZIM Zacharias Trust. She gained a first class degree in Theology at Christ Church, Oxford University, before receiving a Masters degree in Theology at King’s College, London. As well as overseeing the Trust’s apologetics training programme, Amy lectures at the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics and is also invited to speak at many universities, churches and conferences.

Her new book ‘Why Trust the Bible?’ (published under the title ‘Is the Bible Intolerant?’ in North America) was shortlisted for the 2006 UK Christian Book Awards.
