Let's Explore the Answer
It’s not uncommon for many of us to explore what others have done in their lives and wonder how we might compare. If you’re wondering about your purity score, maybe you’d like to take a purity test.
The concept of a purity test was originally designed for new college students to judge their life experiences as a point of connection with upperclassmen. Whether you have seen your share of risky encounters or you’ve played it safe for most of your life, your life experience is unique and can lead you to a greater purpose.

What Skeptics & Atheists Say
There is a prevalent attitude that we ought to explore what feels good freely. Many think that your life experiences should not necessarily matter, that no matter what you do, all that matters is that you have a good time and enjoy your life.
Some believe that exploration, with drugs, alcohol, sex, crime and other socially unacceptable behaviors, encourages identity, individuality and confidence.
However, what feels good doesn’t always feel right. Some spur-of-the-moment choices can have lifelong consequences, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

What The Bible Says
When God designed heaven and earth and when He breathed life into mankind, He designed our bodies, minds and spirits for a purpose. In the same way, God put certain rules in place that govern the world and that govern our lives.
Whether we know it or not, when we break certain rules, they can have detrimental consequences in our lives, even influencing our physical health, the health of our families and the welfare of our communities.
However, when it comes to purity no one is perfect. In fact, the Bible says that every human who has ever lived has messed up in one way or another. So, if you feel imperfect you should know that you’re not alone. You’re not weird or dirty or damaged; you’re human. Everyone around you may sometimes seem like they’re better off than you, but the truth is- they’re imperfect too.
The truth is that God loves imperfect people. Therefore, if you’re imperfect, then God loves you! He’s not surprised or shocked by anything you have ever done or thought- He loves you. The Bible says that God searches for people who feel far from him with the same fervor as a person would search for a lost diamond wedding ring. If you take the purity test today and find that you’re imperfect, this means that God is searching for you.
What would happen if you embraced the possibility that the God of the Bible really did create the world and really does care for you?

In the seventeenth century, a famous philosopher and mathematician, Blaise Pascal, encouraged people to make a wager when it came to belief in God. If a person chose to believe in God and God did exist, that person would gain everything (eternal life). If a person chose to believe in God and God did not exist, that person would lose nothing. On the other hand, if a person chose not to believe in God and he was right, he would lose nothing. But if that person did not believe in God and he was wrong- he would lose everything (lose eternal life).
This wager can be said another way:
Based on this logic, Pascal suggested the rational person would choose to believe in God as believing offers a person everything (eternal life) while losing nothing. Wherever you are in your faith journey, would you consider taking Pascal’s wager? If the good God of the Bible exists, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by believing in Him today.
