What Does Sexuality Mean To You?
Please contact us if you have any questions or comments or want some encouragement.
God created us to be sexual creatures for His purpose, which has been distorted because of our fallen, sinful nature. I believe that sexuality is about your sexual feelings, thoughts, attractions, and behaviors towards those of the other sex. God has created men and women to be attracted to one another for the ultimate purpose of having children. God’s purpose for sex is beautiful, but sinful men and women have made it filthy and dishonorable to God, who created it in the first place. God has designed both the man and woman to find a man or woman of the opposite sex physically, sexually, or emotionally attractive. All those things are a part of sexuality. Sexuality is an integral part of who we are. ~ Bill Greguska
Sexuality For Married Couples!
Is Living Together Before Marriage Acceptable?
Men or women who are sexually active outside marriage, living together or not, are practicing a biblically immoral lifestyle dishonoring God and destroying their spiritual health and future marital life.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
1 Corinthians 13:20
1 Corinthians 10:8
2 Corinthians 12:21
1 Thessalonians 4:1-7
1 Timothy 1:8-11
Because of these Biblical imperatives, we expect unmarried couples to live apart and be sexually abstinent until marriage.
Sexuality Within The Marriage Only?
What About Same-Sex Relationships?
Though experiencing attraction to a person of one’s gender is not a sin, those who experience same-sex attraction are never free biblically to become sexually active with someone of the same sex. (Leviticus 18:22; Leviticus 20:13; Romans 1:24-28); Rather, they must seek God’s help and the support of trusted friends within the church to remain sexually abstinent. They may or may not reach a point where they no longer feel attracted to members of their gender. Notwithstanding, God’s calling for them, as for all believers regardless of gender, interest, or singleness, is to be obedient to the moral standards of Scripture either in abstinence outside marriage or sexual union within heterosexual marriage. ~ Neighborhoodac.org
God’s Way, Or Satan’s Way?
God intended sex to be a beautiful thing between one man and one woman for keeping the world populated. Our sinful world has attempted to change what God meant for good. Here are a couple of definitions of how sex has gotten distorted and sinful.
Definition of debauchery = extreme indulgence in bodily pleasures and especially sexual pleasures : behavior involving sex, drugs, alcohol, etc. that is often considered immoral
Definition of lewd = crude and offensive in a sexual way. “she began to gyrate to the music and sing a lewd song.”
Definition of lascivious = filled with or showing sexual desire: lewd, lustful, lascivious acts/thoughts
