At the beginning of time God designed two sexes and the sacred, sanctified means of sexual intimacy by which a man and a woman could be unified as “one flesh” and bear children within the exclusive covenant of marriage.
However, because of our corrupted sin natures, men and women reject the framework of biblical marriage for sex and instead seek to gratify and worship themselves in all manner of sexual perversions and abominations: pre- and extra-marital heterosexual sex, same-sex homosexuality, adult-child sex, bi-sexuality, pornography, transgenderism, and more.
One of the most effective temptations that Satan uses to destroy men and women from honoring God is through sexual immorality. Satan lies, “God is restrictive. Expand your freedom and gratification by experiencing sex outside marriage.” Regret, ruin, slavery, disease, discontent, divorce, and God’s judgment are the consequences of succumbing.
The good news is that sexual temptation is “common to man” and “God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it” (1 Corinthians 10:13).
Join us this weekend on The Christian Worldview as we discuss “how to overcome sexual temptation.” Because you must and you can…with God’s help.
