I confess. I am all sexed out. I have had enough. Just TMI.
I am weary of the loud tabloid screams trumpeting what celebrity just came out of the closet or which starlet will pose nude or release a sex tape or who is sleeping with who in Hollywood.
I am sickened by the seemingly monthly teacher-sleeping-with-the-middle-school-kid headline.
I have had enough of the cheerleader-sending-nude-photos-on-the-cell-phone stories.
I never want to see or hear another word about how prostitution helps marriages, is a noble and needed service profession and should be legalized.
And I am tired of the overt sexual intrusion into practically every form of entertainment.
My heart breaks to see more and more- especially Christian folk- gravitate towards this skewed and hollow vision (represented by all of the above) of what our sexual nature is all about.
Satan has succeeded in seducing us. He has aggressively taken God’s beautiful wedding gift of sexual intimacy and re-branded it. He has turned it gutter ugly. His approach is animalistic- substituting lust for love. Sex has become just another bodily function to be fulfilled- another itch to scratch with little more thought put into it than that.
Multiple sex partners- sure. Same-sex partners- of course. Shame- for what? Abstinence- not possible. Intimacy- not really attainable. Monogamy- are you kidding!
Satan’s message is loud, clear and is winning our day. Sex rules and has no rules.
But I am oh-so tired of hearing all these loud voices promoting it!
Where are the other voices? Is it just me or does anyone else see a connection between our sexed-up culture and broken homes, broken lives, and broken people?
God did not give us the gift of sex for us to unwrap and throw in the trash. It is worth much more than that. It is a gift to keep and savor- to only be unwrapped and shared in the celebration of marital love and intimacy. It is only here where we can actually realize just how precious this gift really is.
One man for one woman for life may sound like something from another planet these days, but I will take it any day over the gutter garbage sexual perversion Satan celebrates.
