Written by: Arlene Sanchez Walsh Pentecostals, like most other conservative Christians, have very traditional views on both gender and sexuality, taking their cues from particular views of certain biblical passages.
Regarding gender, Pentecostals try to mirror what they view as traditional family values.
Besides that obvious obstacle, they are believed to have a very strict view of Christianity which requires them to dress and act a certain way.
Anyone have advice on approaching this subject with her that could possibly open her eyes to what the church is really about?
I have a co-worker who is pentecostal and he is 20 years old, he believes that you should wait for sex until marriage but he is kind of fuzzy as to what you CAN do before marriage, thats when he just gives a big grin and won't elaborate.
According to some of the members of the Pentecostal Church, this is not true.
It is believed that there are half a billion Pentecostals around the world.
