Sex is good! I say this with all sense of responsibility. God was deliberate about its creation & design. Everything created by God was for man’s good as necessitated by purpose. However, millions of lives have been adversely affected & put in “reverse mode” because of its abnormal use (I.e, abuse). Good things become dangerous when put into abnormal use. Drugs, for instance become ‘weapons of destruction’ when subject to abnormal use, so it is with sex & every other good/beautiful thing.
A lot of people erroneously believe sex abuse is limited to rape. Myles Monroe once said that “when the purpose of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable”. I would consequently infer that “when the purpose for a thing is ignored, abuse is the result”!
Not everyone who abuse sex is ignorant of its purpose. Once sex is engaged in outside of its purpose, abuse is the result.
We have sexual sins like adultery, fornication, incest and so on because sex is designed exclusively for married folks (i.e, between a mature male & a female who are not restated by blood).
So far, sex has been a most effective tool of the devil to thwarting colorful destinies. I urge you for the sake of Christ and your future to heed this warning and turn to God if you are guilty of one or more of salient points in this article. Permit me to briefly define a number of sex abuses/vices.
Adultery: sexual activities between a married and a single person.
Fornication: sexual activities between two singles.
Incest: sexual activities between relations.
Other shades of sex abuse include but are not limited to the following Homosexuality: sexual activities between same sex or gender. (Gay)
Lesbianism: sexual activities between two females.
Pedophilia: sexual activities between an adult and a child or children.
Bestiality: sexual activities between humans and animals.
Prostitution: sexual activities for material, positional or financial gain.
Sex Trading: selling people into prostitution for material, positional or financial gain.
Rape: Forceful sex. (This is also possible in marriage).
Orgy: sexual activities among a number of people at the same time, usually done to fulfill some kind of ritual to demons/gods.
(Please see Leviticus 18)
When sex is taken out of the context of marriage (where it is solely designed for), abuse is what we have. Fornication, adultery and the other variants of sex are abnormal use of sex just as rape is. The only difference is the aspect of the absence of mutual consent. Nonetheless, they are sexual sins as far as God is concerned.
A car has various parts that make up the car, so it is with sex. Romance, foreplay & every other non-penetrative sexual activity are all a part of the ‘sex package’. Fornication & adultery does not begin with sex, in most cases it ends with it. Using condom does not mat it safer; there is NO SAFE SEX OUTSIDE MARRIAGE!
Condoms may prevent pregnancy, no condom can prevent other consequences; don’t play pranks with God!
Many lives have been turned to objects of ridicule due to incessant involvement in sexual sins; many are carrying acute curses & untold burdens from multiple sex partners. Ungodly books, relationships, upbringing, has succeeded to a large extent in unduly exposing millions of young folks to unimaginable depths of sexuality. As a result, a good number of people (old and young) have had their senses/minds so messes up that they exhibit sexual tendencies that are not consistent with God’s original plan for humans. Some people are sexually attracted to both sexes (bisexual), some females are only attracted to men or vice versa (androsexuals), some are sexually attracted to women (gynesexuals), some others exhibit an insatiable desire for sex (nymphomaniacs). It is shocking to know that a number of sexual anomalies are inherited; this further gives credence to the fact that sex is spiritual and has spiritual results/consequences as the case may be.
If you are by any chance involved in any form of sex abuse or immorality, you are headed for a ‘dead end’ except you genuinely repent & seek God’s mercy & deliverance! There might be a dire need for you to see a trusted Christian counsellor or a pastor for proper guidance.
Anyone you’re not married to is considered by God as your father, mother, brother or sister and it is in your own best interest to agree with God on this ground if you must enjoy His blessings.
Never speak harshly to an older man, but appeal to him respectfully as though he were your own father. Talk to the younger men as you would to your own brothers. Treat the older women as you would your mother, and treat the younger women with all purity as your own sisters. 1 Tim 5:1,2 NLT
His grace is sufficient for you.
2 Cor 12:9 KJV: And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
Be wise, choose your friends wisely & flee from everyone/place or thing that activates or sensitizes your sexual antenna. Choose what you read and watch online and on TV; the eyes and ears are windows of the mind.
Run from anything that stimulates youthful lust. Follow anything that makes you want to do right. Pursue faith and love and peace, and enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts. 2 Timothy 2:22 NLT:
Submit to God & His principle; build your walk with Him via fellowship with genuine Christian friends, invest time in personal word study and prayer thereby building your spiritual defense against sexual temptations and arrows that fly by day and by night.
So humble yourselves before God. Resist the Devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7NLT
God could’ve chosen to dwell in the choicest of edifices but He chose your body as His temple; I think that is a great privilege which can only be appreciated via chastity and sexual purity.
God’s word says “Food is for the stomach, and the stomach is for food.” This is true, though someday God will do away with both of them. But our bodies were not made for sexual immorality. They were made for the Lord, and the Lord cares about our bodies. 1 Cor 6:13 NLT
God will bring ruin upon anyone who ruins this temple. For God’s temple is holy, and you Christians are that temple. 1 Cor 3:17NLT
When God needed someone to be the mother of Christ, He sought for a virgin! The idea of getting married as a virgin is not obsolete; every of God’s principle is relevant for life! If perhaps you lost your virginity due to foolishness, God’s arms are wide open to receive you so long as your repentance is genuine. Be sorry enough to STOP the act and turn a new leaf.
If you’re yet to accept Christ as your Lord and Savior, you are headed for eternal damnation. Please take that bold step and make it right with God now that you still can, life is short and tomorrow might just be too late! There is no repentance in the grave or in hell, and NO ONE is worth going to hell for– NO ONE!.
