Sexual Desire: Purity and Porn

Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” Pornography and erotica saturates our culture of today. From the sexualised Bratz dolls our little girls play with to the faux dominatrix gyrations of pop stars in the latest music video and free amateur porn videos posted on YouTube; there is no getting away from the Pornification of society and the porn aesthetic of culture.

The power & passion of sexual desire

Sexual desire is powerful…. We need to understand it so we came take charge of it and direct it to Gods Glory.

Posted by on Apr 12, 2013 in Blog: Doing sex God’s way

Eve and Adam didn’t accept God’s rule. They wanted to be in charge of their life, do their own thing. God was a killjoy, a spoilsport. Tempted by Satan and believing his lie (Genesis 3:4b-5) “Surely you will not die, for God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will open and you will be like divine beings who know good and evil.”; Eve rejects God’s rule on her life.

Naked and ashamed: The first consequence of disobedience to God’s design is (Genesis 3:7) is that “…...

Posted by on Apr 10, 2013 in Blog: Doing sex God’s way

Created for a purpose: In Genesis, we learn that mankind (man and woman) were created to rule over the earth and subdue it (Genesis 1:26). As image bearers of God, man and woman were created to rule and not be ruled by creation. By this means they were to keep the good order that God had created. This is God – man – and the rest of creation. They were to do this as a couple. God brought them together in the first marriage. Man, created first and given the role of leader and woman as the perfect and suitable helper and companion for the task of ruling the world and procreating for the future....
