Our culture has bought a lie. That lie is that a sexual relationship is the greatest experience of our lives. If you don’t have a sexual relationship you don’t have a life. This lie has been around ever since the Renaissance as human society broke away from the inhibiting rules of the Medieval Church and its domination and before the Church’s dominance, when sexuality was central to the worship of ancient gods and goddesses. This lie has grown more and more powerful and prevalent with the advent of the modern sexual revolution. This lie is so strong that traditional heterosexual relationships are giving way to a whole rainbow of other kinds sexual relationships.
The truth is that the one relationship we were created for-the greatest experience of our lives is a relationship with God.
What is sad is that in pursuit of sexual relationships many people are committing sexual acts that inhibit a relationship with God.
This lie is not only among people that don’t really pursue a relationship with God, but sadly it is prevalent among those who call themselves Christians. They believe that their purpose in life is to find that perfect Christian mate and then they can live their life.
As this lie has grown and it has gone further and further from the true purpose of sex for procreation and family stability, to gratification of pleasure and coupling at any cost, the shades of perversion have grown.
With the popularity of “Fifty Shades of Grey” the sexual deviation of Bondage, Dominance, Sadism, and Masochism is being mainstreamed as a “normal” sexual behavior. Those who wish to be in a sexual relationship are now buying that these behaviors need to be a part of the repertoire of any sexual relationship.
If we continue to believe this lie we will never find peace, and joy in our lives and we will never have the assurance of eternal life with God when this life is through. It is not too late to seek the truth and build a life on the one foundation that will not fail.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
