This means that married men and women should be learning mysteries of God as they experience sex together.
I believe singles can also understand something deeper about God through their sexuality.
As ridiculous as it sounds, many Christians grow up thinking that they will magically become sexual when they get married.
Before marriage, their sexuality should lie dormant.
Tweet This Many of our spiritual battles are represented by the clash of truth and lies.
Satan was called "the father of lies." Jesus said of Satan that he has never spoken the truth because lying is his native language.
Exposing yourself to porn, erotica, sexual chat rooms and the like is as though you're feeding your mind and heart spiritual poison. What happens when you have sexual thoughts and desires? Typically, it will venture into one of two unhealthy directions: 1) Nurturing the desire or 2) Nurturing shame and condemnation. First Corinthians is perhaps the most practical teaching on temptation: "No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind.
Here I would like to present five lies that you may believe — lies that make the battle for sexual purity far more difficult.
Lie #1 – Single Christians aren't sexual (or at least they aren't supposed to be).
Our sexuality prompts longings and desires that point to an intimacy beyond what even the best marriage can sustain. I've met with many young men and women who think that their struggle to stay pure would end with a wedding ceremony. However, the battle will not end in marriage; it just changes.
It is possible for both single and married Christians to operate under what Kenny Luck, a pastor at Saddleback Church and founder of Every Man Ministries, called "sexual atheism." In other words, you follow Christ in most areas but excuse yourself from His teachings on sex.
