An Exhortation on Sexual Sin

As a society, we have minimized the horrific nature of sexual perversion and its long-lasting, damaging effects. Our culture sells sex at every mall and billboard; on every big screen and small screen alike. We romanticize evil and inundate vulnerable young minds with false sexual identities, harmful sexual practices, and sexually charged media, then stand aghast when sexual perversion, misconduct, and abuse mark our society.

The Bible is clear that God takes sex seriously, and He takes sexual crimes which defraud our fellow human beings even more seriously (see scripture below). Knowing this, its time to take our battle against the enemy in this arena seriously. Parents, guard the gates of your children’s hearts and appropriately instruct them with God’s word. Men and women, keep your heart with all diligence. Keep your eyes pure, which are the gateway into your mind and soul. Keep your body and its lusts under control by walking in the Spirit. Sexual sin is not just against God and others, but it is also a grievous offense against one’s self. God save us from this perverse generation!

1 Thessalonians 4:3-8 – It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God; and that in this matter no one should wrong or take advantage of a brother or sister. The Lord will punish all those who commit such sins, as we told you and warned you before. For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit.
