Society and Sexuality

By  |  0 Comments

Sexuality has gotten blurred and misdirected. Society has removed the framework God intended. How so you ask? By redefining who you should love and when you should intimately express that love. God intended sex to be an expression of love that forms a bond between a married couple. Something that only they could share together, something intimate, personal, and private that only they have the privilege and pleasure of experiencing with each other.

Today, marriage is being attacked. Some want to change the definition from consisting of a man and a woman to anyone in love. Some even want to question the need for marriage at all. Many people have dwindled marriage into a mere valueless piece of paper; therefore, marriage is not required, only “love.”  And commitment now means only as long as you are committed to me and we are each individually happy and satisfied. When the problems occur, and they will, or I am no longer happy and satisfied, the success of the “marriage” is in jeopardy.

In addition, most people do not wait for marriage to become intimate with one another. Society says we do not need to wait. Why should we deny ourselves the pleasure? There is no big deal with sharing our bodies with others, and love is not required, only the desire to fulfill my “need.”

The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 7: 2 “But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband.”  This is a reminder that as we struggle with the thoughts of and desires for sex, we should refocus our minds to the thoughts of sex within the confines of marriage. You will find satisfaction in following God’s will.
