Progressively Regressive Sexuality…

September 9, 2016

Yes, surely the West has flipped on sexuality and mores!  First, yes we are all sexual beings that’s quite normal, but according to God and Judeo-Christianity we as true Christians, are NOT our own, but belong first to God, and then if we are married to our spouses!  And St. Paul is quite clear on sexual ethics in 1 Corinthians 6 and chapter 7. And of course we should note Paul from Romans 1: 18-32! And we should note too God’s Old Testament sexual ethics for Israel, Lev. 18: 21- 22, ; 27-30 etc. And of course Saul/Paul was a Jew and Judeo on sexual ethics, as was Jesus also!

We can be sure that sexual sin can lose our relationship with God, or show that we don’t really have a true relationship with God In Christ!  Not that we don’t sin sometimes in this area as true Christians, sexual lust is real, but we know the lines that are drawn by God!

“Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins people commit are outside their bodies, but those who sin sexually sin against their own bodies. Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own, you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” (St. Paul, 1 Cor. 7: 18-20)

  1. Btw, at 66, 67 next month I have quite noted the sexual regression in my adult lifetime, especially in the West! And since I still do some hospital chaplain work, sexual issues and questions are always on top of the list, especially one on one pastorally. And I even have a niece who is gay, so I know this road well! But the Christian is to stand fast, but with God’s grace certainly, for we again are all sexual beings. Let us walk circumspectly, carefully, but always with great humility!

    • Of course God is the Judge, but however you read it biblically, homosexuality is a sin! Does this mean that everyone or anyone that has engaged in this is doomed? Of course not! Read 1 Cor. 6: 11, yes the old Corinthians were like so many today, but as Paul said, “practicing” sexually immoral’s and homosexuals will not inherit the kingdom of God! Thankfully God In Christ forgives sexual sin, heterosexual & homosexual, but NOT the practice and lifestyle of either! As Paul writes to the Corinthians, “And this is what some of you used to be. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of God.” (Verse 11) Of course both sanctification & justification are the essence of Regeneration and the New Birth ‘In Christ’! (John 3: 3, “born from above”, by God) And yes, Baptism is a “sign & seal” here!

      • So the bottom line here is that true Christians DON’T “practice” sexual sins! But if they fall here, they repent and again seek to walk the straight and narrow way of God’s forgiveness and the power of the New Birth, in the New Man or Person! (Col. 3: 5-10, etc.)

        *I like this old saying, the enemies for the Christian are ‘the world, the flesh and the devil!’ But ‘In Christ’ we have the victory! Read Romans 7: 13-25 with Romans chapter 8: 1-13, etc.
