SEX

Post  dove on Sat 18 Aug 2007, 3:02 pm

Sex is a gift God gives to married people for their mutual enjoyment. It's in the Bible, Proverbs 5:18-19, TLB. "Let your manhood be a blessing; rejoice in the wife of your youth. Let her charms and tender embrace satisfy you. Let her love alone fill you with delight."

Romance and God's gift of sexuality are highly recommended within the commitment of marriage. It's in the Bible, Hebrews 13:4, NIV. "Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure…" I Corinthians 7:3,4, NIV says, "The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. The wife's body does not belong to her alone but also to her husband. In the same way, the husband's body does not belong to him alone but also to his wife."

God designed sex as part of the unique relationship of marriage. It's in the Bible, I Corinthians 7:5, TLB. "So do not refuse these rights to each other. The only exception to this rule would be the agreement of both husband and wife to refrain from the rights of marriage for a limited time, so that they can give themselves more completely to prayer. Afterwards, they should come together again so that Satan won't be able to tempt them because of their lack of self-control."

To keep from hurting ourselves, sexual desires and activities must be placed under Christ's control. It's in the Bible, I Thessalonians 4:3-5, TLB. "For God wants you to be holy and pure and to keep clear of all sexual sin so that each of you will marry in holiness and honor—not in lustful passion as the heathen do, in their ignorance of God and his ways."

The seventh commandment forbids adultery. It's in the Bible, Exodus 20:14, "You shall not commit adultery."

Sexual sin is destructive, even when the effects are not immediately apparent. It's in the Bible, I Corinthians 6:18, TLB. "That is why I say to run from sex sin. No other sin affects the body as this one does. When you sin this sin it is against your own body."

How does sexual sin begin? It's in the Bible, Matthew 5:28, TLB. "But I say: Anyone who even looks at a woman with lust in his eye has already committed adultery with her in his heart."

The Bible condemns homosexual behavior. It's in the Bible, Romans 1:26-27, NIV. "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion."

The Bible forbids incest. It's in the Bible, Leviticus 18:6, NIV. "No one is to approach any close relative to have sexual relations."

The Bible forbids bestiality. It's in the Bible, Leviticus 18:23, NIV. "Do not have sexual relations with an animal and defile yourself with it."

The Bible forbids sexual relations with a prostitute. It's in the Bible, I Corinthians 6:15-17, TLB. Don't you realize that your bodies are actually parts and members of Christ? So should I take part of Christ and join Him to a prostitute? Never! And don't you know that if a man joins himself to a prostitute she becomes a part of him and he becomes a part of her? For God tells us in the Scripture that in His sight the two become one person."

The verses were all very good, but what is one to do when it's like they're alone anyway?

My sex life has been going south for years and it finally ha gotten to the point of (what I think is) no return.

Thank you for your reply to the post. Even if we are alone or with anyone, it does not mean that we should start sinning. Adultery is the only sin in the Bible that we do it against our bodies. We can remain away from adultery, if we realize the consequences. To every sin there are consequences and to adultery there is a huge consequence and the Bible says that we sin againt our body. There are no detour or short cuts in God's commands.

These laws prevent us from destroying ourselves and other peoples' lives. I give you an example, if I do not commit adultery, I will not be treating a woman as a prostitute and I will not be making any woman a prostitute. This is a part of worshipping Heavenly Father as He made Adam in His image and likeness and woman was made from Adam.

Although in this modern world, we climb the roof tops and cry that we are very humane. Animals have rights, plants have rights, river have rights, seas have right, earth has rights and you can add million to these.

But I see people living without marriage and treating each other as sex toys. Men treat woman as prostitutes and women treat men as sex toys. Where is the so-called humanity here? Don't animals do the same? There is no respect, it is just like buying a woman or a man for some time and then finding another one and going on with the same routine.

When we sin, we deny Heavenly Father as our God Almighty in heavens and Jesus Christ as our LORD and Savior. We reject the sacrifice Jesus made for us and we accept satan as our god. Why? Because we refused to follow God's command and willingly and happily accepted to follow satan.

Always remember, from Heavenly Father comes salvation and everlasting life and from satan comes destruction. So the choice is ours to reach out and get free gift of salvation and everlasting life or to get destroyed by following satan.

Heavenly Father is creator of our bodies so He knows that what is good for us and what is not. I would suggest that if you cannot live without sex, then get married. This is the only way that can save you from this and I would also say that sex is least important. The most important thing is to know Jesus Christ so that you may know who Heavenly Father is.

God bless you

Thank you Dove, I wanted to comment this last night, but I
was to tire and went to bed. I thought the same way Daniel does, he has it
right in everything. If a person is burning with lust, than they should married?
That is in the Bible also. Now a person can become a eunuch for God that is
possible. Isaiah 56:3-5 { Neither let the son of the stranger, that
hath joined himself to the Lord, speak, saying, The Lord hath utterly separated
me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree. For
thus saith the Lord unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the
things that please me, and take hold of my covenant;
Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name
better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name,
that shall not be cut off.
Praise Yahweh your
sacrifice will be held high with the Almighty. Anastasia
