There’s another consequence that God wants to spare us from – it’s the physical consequence of premarital sex. There’s a physical consequence. In fact, I read recently that when God created man and when God created woman, He designed sex for the marriage bed and the act of sex, I’m talking about sexual intercourse, should reflect the image of God. Let me explain. When God made man, He stamped on man His masculine characteristics. When God made woman, He stamped on woman His feminine characteristics. Thus when they come together in the act of marriage, the image of God in its masculine and feminine aspects are blended and two become one. That’s why the math of marriage in the Bible is one plus one equals one. When you have sex outside the marriage bed, you’re making a mockery of the image of God and that’s nothing to play around with. Because we’re making a mockery of the image of God, there’s a physical price that we pay.
Think about sexually transmitted diseases. Forty-three million Americans have incurable, sexually-transmitted disease. Twelve million will contract a disease that’s incurable this year. We practice what our government and the public school education calls “safe” or “safer” sex. Folks, you’re playing genital Russian Roulette when you’re doing that. What if you signed up for a skydiving course and the skydiving instructor said, “Ron Jones, welcome to the skydiving school. Ron, you will have a one in six change of your parachute not opening”. Now, do you think Ron Jones will say, “Hey, I want to sign up for that! Yes, that will be fun!” No. He would turn and sprint away. He would run away. You can only get pregnant a couple of days of the month.
You can catch the HIV virus, for example, any day of the year. The HIV virus is 150 times smaller than one man’s sperm. Physical consequences.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Church
