The Price of Purity

This morning, I read a story on Fox News about a 22 year old who is selling her virginity online. According to the story, the young woman's offer has netted a 3.7 million dollar offer and has had over 10,000 bids.

The Moonlite Bunny Ranch, the brothel that is arranging and hosting the deal, sounded especially gung-ho about Dylan.

"Natalie is a virgin and would like to sell this priceless and rare commodity in a very exclusive and private setting," says the Bunny Ranch Web site.

While the commodity's rarity may be debatable, more than 10,000 bidders have come forth to put a price tag on Dylan's purity. And if the Bunny Ranch's owner is to be believed, someone has offered $3.7 million, a price far above rubies.

In a reference to Proverbs 31:10, the author claims that the price of $3.7 million is far above that of rubies. The Bible says, "Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies" (KJV).

This woman is not virtuous. She may be a virgin, but she is not virtuous. Virtuous women do not sell their bodies for money. A virtuous woman would be appalled at the idea.

So I started thinking -- if the virginity of one non-virtuous woman is worth that much to over 10,000 men who don't even know her, how much more is the purity of a woman worth to a man who loves her?
