There's no getting around it. This subject is huge and will inevitably inspire a variety of reactions. We all have our ideas and beliefs about this subject. And just like you, I am entitled to mine. My belief comes from the beginning.
Historically, men and women never used to have sex unless their union was authenticated by God. In this day and age (thousands of years later) we call that marriage. Its only over time that the idea and action of sex has been diluted to "anyone and everyone". But lets get real - this is the reality for most things now. We (humans) have taken original things and over time have mixed them up and in with our own desires, beliefs, and ideals. A custom designed reality - good enough for the moment! (because lets be honest, we change our minds, and adopt new ideals as we grow up). Some of you reading this are wondering why this is a problem, after all freedom to choose is your right - right? But if you could take a moment to look past your self-righteousness, surely even you can see that the world used to be a much better place before it got so complicated. On many different levels. That is because the way it was originally, was the way it was always supposed to be.
Picture two pieces of A4 paper. One piece represents you and one piece represents your partner. Now, get your glue out and lather it on to both pieces of paper, after which, stick the two pieces together. This symbolises the ‘two of you’ coming together sexually. After a time, the glue will dry and the two pieces of paper are pretty much stuck for life.
When a man and a woman come together sexually, they are in effect making connections that are very difficult to break. By doing this they are also opening themselves up to give and receive whatever the other possesses.
The two pieces of paper have been stuck together for a time now. It may have been 24 hours – representing a one night stand. Or 5 years – representing a defacto relationship. One or both of the pieces of paper are getting cold feet, (if you can imagine pieces of paper having feet). Have you ever tried to tear apart two pieces of paper stuck firmly together with dry glue? Try to visualize this. What happens when the paper attempts to be torn apart? I’ll tell you what happens, you end up with both pieces of paper sporting rips, holes, tears and/or strips of your ex-partner left behind – still stubbornly sticking to what is supposed to be your body (oops I mean paper)...Read More Here
At what age does the thought of sex dominate our lives? It used to be around the 16 mark, but unfortunately, due to physical and social progression, children can become interested and indeed obsessed with this subject at the point of puberty - which can be as young as 11-12 years old in this day and age. Shocking really, that an 11 year old is potentially consumed by the thought, and maybe even the act, of sex.
We all know how it usually works; Boy reaches puberty and all of a sudden everything and every thought revolves around HOW AND WHEN they are going to accomplish this unequivocal priority. Girl wants to impress boy, (as at this age everything is about the BOY), and sadly, 9 times out of 10 - betrays herself all in the name of Love. Because "If you loved me you would do it". Who hasn't heard that line before!! To this day there are still some of us who are living in a hopelessly romantic dream world, and who will swear black and blue that “this love really did exist” and it wasn't a figment of our imagination ....Read More Here
You must love God more than yourself....anyone else.....or anything else.
If you know the truth but are struggling to live by it, then the only thing that will save you is a deep uncompromising LOVE for God. By this all things can be measured. If you love a man, then you must love God more. Likewise for the men; If you love a woman, your love for God must overshadow it.
But it doesn't stop there. After 27 years of testing every theory and failing spectacularly, I finally got it right. I met a man who wasn't a christian, in fact he worked in the same industry as me so the chances of it working were almost 0-none. It was almost laughable if it wasn't so perfect. Right from the beginning I spelt it out and stuck to my guns. I told him that if he wanted to be with me....if we had any chance of making it past the alter, HE HAD TO LOVE GOD MORE THAN ME. What woman in their right mind would want their man to love someone more than her??? A woman who loved God more, that's who. ....Read More Here
