Sex of the Times
You know for a fact that when an article like this is posted, it’s serious business. Sex has been crushed and burnt in the incinerator of modern times. The perversion of this God-given gift is blasphemy in His sight as we tragically twist it into something else. When God originally created sex it was for a divine purpose.
Genesis 9:7 As for you, be fruitful and increase in number; multiply on the earth and increase upon it.”
However, many other individuals have taken this sacred act and used it for evil.
David had sex because of lust…
2 Samuel 11:2 One evening David got up from his bed and walked around on the roof of the palace. From the roof he saw a woman bathing. The woman was very beautiful,and David sent someone to find out about her. The man said, “She is Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam and the wife of Uriah the Hittite.” Then David sent messengers to get her. She came to him, and he slept with her. (Now she was purifying herself from her monthly uncleanness.)Then she went back home. The woman conceived and sent word to David, saying, “I am pregnant.”
Amnon had sex because of lust… (Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree)
2 Samuel 13:10-14 Then Amnon said to Tamar, “Bring the food here into my bedroom so I may eat from your hand.” And Tamar took the bread she had prepared and brought it to her brother Amnon in his bedroom. But when she took it to him to eat, he grabbedher and said, “Come to bed with me, my sister.”
“No, my brother!” she said to him. “Don’t force me! Such a thing should not be done in Israel! Don’t do this wicked thing. What about me? Where could I get rid of my disgrace? And what about you? You would be like one of the wicked fools in Israel. Please speak to the king; he will not keep me from being married to you.” But he refused to listen to her, and since he was stronger than she, he raped her.
Onan had sex because it was his duty…
Genesis 38: 8-10 Then Judah said to Onan, “Sleep with your brother’s wife and fulfill your duty to her as a brother-in-law to raise up offspring for your brother.” But Onan knew that the child would not be his; so whenever he slept with his brother’s wife, he spilled his semen on the ground to keep from providing offspring for his brother. What he did was wicked in the Lord sight; so the Lord put him to death also. Lot’s daughters wanted to multiply but the way they went about it was sinful incest. Their descendants were eventually wiped out as they became enemies of Israel…
Lot’s daughters had sex to multiply but how they did it was not of God. Their descendants of incest became Israels enemies and were eventually wiped out…
Genesis 19:30-32 Lot and his two daughters left Zoar and settled in the mountains, for he was afraid to stay in Zoar. He and his two daughters lived in a cave. One day the older daughter said to the younger, “Our father is old, and there is no man around here to give us children—as is the custom all over the earth. Let’s get our father to drink wine and then sleep with him and preserve our family line through our father.
Jacob had sex because of the jealousy and competition between his wives, Rachel and Leah…
Genesis 30:1-3 When Rachel saw that she was not bearing Jacob any children, she became jealous of her sister. So she said to Jacob, “Give me children, or I’ll die!” Jacob became angry with her and said, “Am I in the place of God, who has kept you from having children?” Then she said, “Here is Bilhah, my servant. Sleep with her so that she can bear children for me and I too can build a family through her.”
Absalom had sex as a sign of rebellion...
2 Samuel 16:22 So they pitched a tent for Absalom on the roof, and he slept with his father’s concubines in the sight of all Israel.
Judah slept with a prostitute because he was a lonely, bereaved widower…
Genesis 38:15-16 When Judah saw her, he thought she was a prostitute, for she had covered her face. Not realizing that she was his daughter-in-law, he went over to her by the roadside and said, “Come now, let me sleep with you.”
Abraham had sex because of impatience…
Genesis 16:1-4 Now Sarai, Abram’s wife, had borne him no children. But she had an Egyptian slave named Hagar; so she said to Abram, “The Lord has kept me from having children. Go, sleep with my slave; perhaps I can build a family through her.” Abram agreed to what Sarai said. So after Abram had been living in Canaan ten years, Sarai his wife took her Egyptian slave Hagar and gave her to her husband to be his wife. He slept with Hagar, and she conceived. When she knew she was pregnant, she began to despise her mistress.
As you can see, nothing much as changed. People have twisted the concept of sex and love to the point that we have involved ourselves with something entirely different. The question is, in the bedroom, are we having sex or are we enjoying the abuse that we have been taught by society?
But what would a single, 25-year-old virgin like me know? Well, let’s look at the statistics from muscleandfitness.com…
76% of millennials lose their virginity by 18,
45% of them lose it between 16 and 18
31% lose their virginity by 15
Why are young people losing their virginity at such an early age? Teenagers have become involved in sexual activity when they should be planning their futures. Instead, it is obstructed by pregnancies and sexual diseases such as herpes and other infirmities. (Herpes can be transmitted via sex or even kissing.)
The reason why teenagers are involved in sexual activity is because they have been taught this through many types of media. Music, movies, books, and influences such friends who have stumbled upon sexual content over the internet. And because they haven’t been taught at a young age what is right, they will easily accept what is wrong and that impairs their minds view of sex. You cannot allow your children to watch and listen to content that promotes masculinity by how many girls a man sleeps with and feminity by how promiscuous she is. Gentlemen’s character is the thing of the past and so is modesty. But that doesn’t mean we can’t raise a generation that holds onto purity.
Sex should be done after marriage, not before. Sex has never been a problem when it was inside of a marriage, only when it is outside of it…
25% of married people have been with only one sexual partner
Sex with many partners has an effect on relationships, whether it was before or during the relationship. Infidelity has only caused pain and it can be struck up from past relationships.
61% of millennials have had a one night stand, (31% had one or two, 16% had three to five one night stands)
God never designed relationships for one night stands. Relationships were made to be forever, a covenant that only death can destroy. One night stands tend to make machines out of us, desiring sex that never satisfies but denies us the intimacy that we truly inwardly crave.
88% of men and women masturbate, (94% of men masturbate, 83% of women masturbate)
Relationships and sex were made for two people of the opposite gender only. Masturbation is a secret thing and that what captivates many individuals. No one judges them and that’s why it feels acceptable. But masturbation is a sinful fantasy in the mind of lust. It can get addictive and cause problems later on when you engage in real relationships.
26% of millennials include pornography in their sexual activity
Pornography is the number one killer of love. It doesn’t teach it, it diminishes it in your psychology. Pornography reduces the brain’s function to fall in love and that what makes you lose interest in real relationships. You start to fantasize and reality is never satisfying. Bringing pornography into a marriage is the most destructive thing you can do because once everything is done, the lust for more isn’t quenched, the search for a new partner will begin. Someone who can provide more lustful and perverted fantasies. Pornography is the practice of rape and human trafficking.
24% have sex with multiple partners
This increases unfaithfulness and spreads STD’s, causing pain wherever you go. HIV is also the number one killer. You may use protection but even a kiss can spread this sexual disease. The soul ties caused by these interactions can cause adverse effects on your spirituality.
36% are inclined to BDSM
BDSM stands for bondage, discipline, submission and masochism. It is a sexual preference for abuse and torture. Individuals are bound with ropes, leashes, chains, handcuffs, collars, and are assaulted during their sexual activity. It could even go to the point where partners are treated like prisoners or dogs, a series of inhumane actions that people think is pleasurable.
Two people have sex because they love each other. But how do you love someone if they are tied to the bed like a human trafficking victim? How do you love them if you are acting as if you are raping them? How do you love them if you are having a scene of abuse and torture? And we have movies and books like 50 Shades of Grey to make all this seem acceptable. People will follow the trends of the media, participating in acts of abuse and selfish lust. How would you find love in a marriage today?
57% have sexted, 49% have sent naked pictures
Ladies, never send a picture of yourself to a guy. Ever! Don’t send bikini pictures or nude images. If a man asks for that, break off the relationship, and block him. Many guys have asked for this picture and then the girl is blackmailed in the relationship otherwise her pictures will be all over the internet. And once a picture hits social media, it could never be taken off. Your reputation will be ruined for life. If your nude picture is over the internet, there will be a lot of gossip about you and you’ll never find a godly guy because they will stay far from you. If a guy asks you for a picture, ask yourself: why he would want it? Is he going to be lusting after your body when you’re not around? What could he be doing with? Such an ungodly and lustful man should not be in a relationship with you.
Sending lustful text messages and dirty-minded texts will only remove the boundaries of your relationship. Very soon, those expressed thoughts and words will become actions…
51.6% was the increase of orders for sex dolls during the lockdown in February and March.
This is one of the scariest things I’ve heard of. I’m surprised there’s no horror movie based on sex dolls. What could we expect? A demon-possessed sex doll killing people? Reading the article in the YOU Magazine The Future Of Sex page 88-91, the article made me sick to the core. There’s a factory in California that manufactures sex dolls using silicon that feels like skin. You can choose what type of sex doll you want and even get one that could talk to you with AI technology. Slowly, but surely, they are practically replacing the human being and changing the reason why we exist. Why are sex dolls wrong? It’s not love, it’s lust. And it’s the same thing as masturbating. Sex dolls will remove the possibility of love, reduce human interaction, and totally destroy intimacy. Humans have no need for machines when it comes to emotions and desire.
So in conclusion, please define sex by what the Creator called it to be. People have twisted it, mixed it with other profanities in the blender of perversion, and still have the audacity to call it the same thing. The Bible has it’s standard and instruction regarding sex, we need to follow that instead of what the media says, instead of what depraved minds are lusting after and instead of what Satan wants to use to destroy God’s creation. If you have sinned sexually in the past, there is still redemption in Christ Jesus who came to set the captives free. He alone can provide a godly partner and a godly relationship but you will have to trust Him and include Him in your marriage…

We have taken the sacred and done what we do with so many things…made it serve our own needs. Food-gluttony, grateful appraisal-envy, sex-selfish pleasure at the cost of others. Name any blessing and watch it’s flip side destroy lives…by? Because He lets us chose…if serving God is unpleasant for you…you don’t have to…but the manual He gave us works, it’s healthy and peaceful. When we leave his words behind..there will be fall out. Your article nailed in, over and over! Well done!
