Sex (Part 1 of 2) - the Evil Side - Now Think On This by Steve Martin

Sex

(Part 1 of 2)

- The Evil Side 


Now Think On This
Steve Martin


 “And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper…” (Romans 1:28, NASU)


This Now Think On This message has a simple title: Sex.

Why so simple? Because the basics of life for sex are not complicated. Thus the simple title.  (Please notice though that there will be at least two parts to this message, being this is obviously Part 1.)

As you read, I want you to know that I do not adhere to PC (political correctness). You’ll find none here. Nor will there be any confusion present. There is nothing more clear and direct than what we are to know about sex.

You believe God. He tells it like it is. It is definitely not rocket science. He has no intent to lead us astray or make it hard to understand Him.

You don’t believe God? Then I suggest you go read something else, because you lost it right out of the starting gate.

If you don’t believe something that has been proven over, and over, and over again to be the truth, then you will go on living the deceptive lie that has swallowed men and women to the point where they believe anything about anything. How much more deception can there be? Especially when it comes to sex.

One look at the results where we have finally arrived, in our free societies, and you know that there is not much left at all to be deceived about.

So what are we made to think is ‘normal” sex today? With full exposure in all its forms, we are being taught (notice how the hot water has been rapidly heating up, and yet the frogs inside the soon to be boiling pot on the stove have no clue) – that all is OK. I’m OK. You’re OK.

It is all around us – the late-night, though ever earlier - TV reality and drama programs; movies that used to be rated XXX when I was a teenager, now get an “R” rating, and even some PG-13 shows are pushing the line further across the “don’t go there” marker passed decades ago.

Cute looking books with nice covers are available in almost every book store, family-themed included (except in the few remaining Christian ones that have not shut down yet for lack of support) teaching our kindergartners that it is normal for “Mommy and Mommy to love each other” and “Daddy and Daddy teach us the way to go, to walk there on.” Their new gospel has replaced the most common sense one, given to us by the Creator of sex Himself.

Talk about common sense, or lack of it? Even my Dad knew that I knew, when he handed me the plumbing pipes, as I helped him in my middle school years, that the “male end goes into the female end" of the pipe, when joining together to get a good fit. Or connecting the garden hose to the faucet. Didn't take much of a brain to figure that out. Simple human anatomy science at work.

Don’t dare allow any of the “righteous ones” to speak out against that though, for that would be judgmental. And we each shouldn’t judge one another or how we want to live.

Love that is love” is always right, right? Simply put – “No it is not.”

Out-of-marriage sex – starting as early as possible, with anyone, and then going on even after leaving your wife or husband, after 30 years, to just play around. Now you are free?

Marriage? Millennials don’t know what that word is? “I don’t need to be committed to one person. What happens if we don’t love each other, or even like one another, after a year or more of living together? Then I won’t have to go through a nasty divorce like my parents did when I was eight.”

If unwanted life happens to happen, we can get rid of "it" tomorrow. It's just tissue. We'll go to Planned Parenthood, for they have the way to keep my body my body.



Or Liam will marry William, and Emma will partner with Olivia, and if we all want to live together, no problem. You can even be Bruce tonight and become Katrina tomorrow night! (Or is he/she another name? Can’t keep up with it.)

What fun it will be! Until at least when the inner emotional pain, sexual diseases and other unnatural results, result.

How crazy has it gotten?!

And then there is the astronomically expanding quantity of easily accessible, 24/7 Internet, affecting all levels of society.

Just today I saw this article published by a leading Christian news organization, CHARISMANEWS, where incidentally I get most of my accurate, up-to-date-good news.

“Research has shown that early summer brings a peak in porn searches on the internet. While the reason for this is unclear, with 68 percent of men in the church viewing pornography on a regular basis, it is likely that these men are being exposed to more triggers in the summer months. As the weather warms up, people dress in Summer clothing. 

For someone who struggles with pornography, this can act as a subconscious trigger that leads them into a downward spiral to going online and acting out. Some other possible explanations are that people have more time on their hands or are around family, which could bring up childhood triggers.” (Source: Porn Use Skyrockets with Onset of Summer” 6/6/2017 KINGDOM WORKS  CHARISMANEWS. Full article and further material below.)



Sex trafficking and prostitution has hit all the major (and minor) cities of the USA and throughout the entire world. Young girls, some just barely over the age of 12, with the average age being 13 in America, are lured into giving their bodies even to older, much older perverted men. CBN News had a report on their 700 Club, with Pat Robertson, this week of a woman who described her horrible years trapped in the evil, sinful destruction of young lives. Most “clients” didn’t even care that she was 13 when the horrible abuse in sexual perversion began with her.
Thus in our sex-crazed, unstoppable, uncontrollable access to anything, we have convinced ourselves that this is now OK, that the Bible is totally outdated and obsolete, and we have found the freedom, the better way, for our enlightened cultures.

No more laws. No more commandments. No more legalistic rules to hold us down. Yes, freedom is fully ours! And if we want to change it next week, we’ll just go right ahead. Majority rules! We’ll just get our lawmakers and judges to do it, or we will vote them out (if elected) or have them removed!

No one has been left unaffected, unless you have lived on a deserted, middle-of-the-Pacific island for the past 20 years.
There you have it. Part 1. Come back in a day or so for my next message. 

There is good news.

6/6/2017 KINGDOM WORKS  Charisma News
With pornography use reaching its height during summer months, churches are being called to provide a program to disciple their men on sexual integrity.
Research has shown that early summer brings a peak in porn searches on the internet. While the reason for this is unclear, with 68 percent of men in the church viewing pornography on a regular basis, it is likely that these men are being exposed to more triggers in the summer months. As the weather warms up, people dress in Summer clothing. For someone who struggles with pornography, this can act as a subconscious trigger that leads them into a downward spiral to going online and acting out. Some other possible explanations are that people have more time on their hands or are around family, which could bring up childhood triggers.
We live in a free society where we don't dictate what people wear, but there are thousands of men in desperate need of accountability and discipleship so that they can respond to these triggers in a healthy way.
In 1 Corinthians 10:13, Paul says: "No temptation has taken you except what is common to man. God is faithful, and He will not permit you to be tempted above what you can endure, but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it."
If you've ever struggled in this area, you've probably been looking for that way out and wondering, Why haven't I found it yet?
Over 400,000 men in over 60 countries have started their journey to freedom through the Conquer Series, a six-DVD cinematic study.
