Sexual Confusion #5

Thinking clearly, acting gracefully.

Genesis 1:27; 2:24 “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” “For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.”

Today our society is sexually overactive, hyper stimulated as a result of the past generation’s so-called sexual revolutions and its exploitation by the media for profit. That which was once deemed holy, privately restrained in the marriage bed, has now become a wide open arena for self-satisfaction and abuse.
The carnal man is like an 800lb gorilla that demands its way. The weak willed restraint of today’s encouraged self-gratification is like a miniature cartoon character trying to stand up to the monsters desires. But sex is not a tool for self-gratification! When pursued for this purpose it is like a drug that demands more and more. God’s design for the sexual relationship between a husband and wife is an expression of intimacy, of physical and spiritual oneness, of self-giving love required in a lifelong marital relationship.

The abused, selfish, sexual activities of the modern era are a perversion of God’s original design. This has resulted in a driving dissatisfaction that is expressed and pursued in many various perversions of the original. Like a drug that ravages the body and mind, never satisfied, so the self-serving sexual gratification also devalues and destroys the mind and the body.

God’s wonderful promise is grace for those desiring help to control the beast. If you will pursue His will He will help you, but if you do not He will allow you to go your way as defined by the Apostle Paul in Romans 1:24 “Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them.”
