Have you ever heard of a "walk in marriage" (or "walking marriage")?  This type of relationship is practiced by the Mosuo people of China.  Basically, beginning at age 16, young women allow certain men to visit them at night in their private bedrooms.  (For a more detailed description, I encourage you to listen to today's Footsteps.)  These "walk in marriages" should not shock us.  In our U.S. culture, it is becoming more and more common for couples to avoid marriage and simply choose to live together.  Both the Mosuo people of China and the people of America need Jesus.  Not only does He provide the grace to save souls, but He gives his disciples the power to flee from sin.
