Overcoming Sexual Sins
Sexual sins are so prevalent in our world today, but it is not just a modern day problem. Sexual sins have been a problem since biblical times. The Bible makes it very clear that any sexual activity outside of marriage is considered sin. This includes extra-marital sexual activity, homosexual activity, and sexual activity to any degree with animals. All these are sinful attempts to find sexual and emotional expression in ways God never intended. All sexual sins are rebellion and should be dealt with according to rebellion against God. Sexual sins are rebellion against the actual design, order and creation of God. Sexual sin disrupts the order of creation and the harmony God intended between man and women within the marriage covenant. Sexual sins, to any degree, bring guilt, shame, confusion, and scatteredness. A person can be struggling with all these issues and not be aware that they are a result of sexual sins. At the fall of man (Gen 3), God’s perfect creation was spoiled with sin and spiritual rebellion. Spiritual rebellion affected us physically, emotionally, spiritually and sexually. Jesus declared God’s plan for His creation. But, since the beginning, man has wanted to do whatever he wants to do (rebellion).
“And he answered and said unto them, have ye not read, that He which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?” Matthew 19:4, 5
