Jonas Brothers Get Bashed!

September 11, 2008


Maybe you watched British comic Russell Brand bash the Jonas Brothers for wearing promise rings at MTV’s Video Music Awards (VMA) last Sunday night. I didn’t see it happen, but I read about it on Equally as interesting were the celeb comments in support of the Jonas Brother’s promise rings.


Here’s how American Idol winner Jordin Sparks reacted: “I just have one thing to say about promise rings. It’s not bad to wear a promise ring, because not everybody—guy or girl—wants to be a slut.”*


Us Weekly captured this quote from Paris Hilton: “I don’t pick on them. That’s something cool for a kid to keep.”*


How’d the Jonas Brothers take it? Brother Nick, 15, said, “For us, it’s cool to see that he [Russell Brand] recognizes we are gentleman.”*


Promise Rings. Last Monday morning, the day after the VMAs, I logged onto theFlow, and found that Karivyb1 had begun a discussion in the feedback forum titled “Promise Rings?” She wrote: “I really want a promise ring but I’m not sure if the SDA church will allow it. What do you guys think?”


Dwain replied to her question, and then Karivyb1 replied to his comment: “I really wanted to make a statement to my friends, who believe that abstaining until marriage is a bad thing. They think what I’m doing is wrong.”


I admire Karivyb1 for promising to stay pure until she gets married. It’s a tough promise to keep, and one that definitely is right. Ephesians 5:3 says, “Among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy people” (NIV).


Do you need a ring to remind you to stay pure? While I don’t think it’s necessary, you might disagree with me. Do you need to ask God to help you keep a personal promise to stay pure? I do think that’s necessary, because it’s hard to do. Anyway, I think it’s great that the Jonas Brothers have made a purity commitment. I hope their decision will spark many others to make one too—maybe even you.
