Worship in its purest form does not always require extra time from your schedule. It is so permeated into everything that you cannot do anything without worship.

America is very good at worship. Too bad we worship sex.

I just finished watching a movie, Iron Man 2, with a bunch of my buddies. During the movie I was deeply moved by a realization of how things have changed in the very short time that I’ve been alive. People no longer hope for sex or lustful scenes in a film: they expect it.

Iron Man 2 proved to be an altar upon which to worship sex. Not by devoting a specific scene or lengthy amount of time to it, but by allowing it to permeate everything.

Look at the magazines next time your going through checkout. Before you turn them over (I hope) take note of how many promote sex. Or better yet, find one that doesn’t.

Don’t get me wrong. Sex is a good thing. I often get accusations from atheists concerning the Songs of Solomon. That book, along with Proverbs and a few others, are very explicit in their sexual content. Not because they were trying to sell to the general public, but because God said that it is good, and must be kept good.

The devil is incapable of creating pleasure. So He must take something that God has created for us, and find a way to make it sinful. They say that prostitution is the oldest occupation. That’s because The Enemy was quick to learn that sex is both very pleasurable, and very easy to pollute. Sex is like a mousetrap, with many intricate pieces necessary for it to work properly. Let us look at Gods formula:

One Man, One Woman.

What happens when you alter these elements?
—–

One Man, Many Woman.

This is the most popular alteration in America. Sexual “freedom”. Having a sexual partner without any commitment.
—–

Two Men.

Homosexuality. Built upon emotion and fed by Hollywood’s idea of “love”.
—–

One Man.

Lust can consume like a fire fed with gasoline. It has gotten to the point that you no longer need a partner to take advantage of the sex drive. I heard a statistic that %60 of internet usage is for pornography. I really, really want to write about that soon.

Our weapon of defense: 2 Corinthians 10:4-5

“For the weapons of our warfare [are] not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;”

Examine your thoughts, your motives, your desires.

    “For by a means of a harlot a man is reduced to a crust of bread…” Proverbs 6:26
    This is a truly humbling and humiliating truth about man’s sinful sexual desire when it is done outside the design of God’s plan. We are “lovers of pleasure” rather than “lovers of God” (1 or 2 Timothy)

      I love that verse. We’re not even a sandwich when we’re with a girl.

      We often bite off more than we can chew, thinking ourselves somehow strong enough.
