The Lust For Sex Generation

There is not one day that goes by when we do not hear or see something that has to do with sex. It seems that anything is being obsessively called sexy; apart from the usual sexy woman and sexy clothing, it is now also sexy car, sexy house, sexy cell phones, sexy cake, sexy cup, sexy food – just to name a few. The media and the movie industry are promoting this so called freedom of sex on a very broad scale, showing sexually explicit scenes. Do it whenever you want with whomever you want, it tells us, and that also includes gay sex.

“Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. And the men, instead of having normal sexual relationships with women, burned with lust for each other.” Romans 1:26-27 NLT

And in doing so, it prematurely awakens, which is before getting married, the lust for sex in especially the young people, causing much emotional and physical harm, including sexually transmitted diseases and porn addiction.

“I want you to promise, O women of Jerusalem, not to awaken love until the time is right.” Song of Solomon 8:4 NLT

The other day, Sophia and I visited one of the famous public amusement places in Hollywood. The facility was very crowded with many young people and children. As we were walking through this place, we felt a strong spirit of lust. The dictionary describes the word “lust” as having an intense or obsessive craving for sex. Sex was craftily being promoted in stores through their advertisements everywhere, and there were many young and middle aged women dressing very inappropriately – sensual and scarcely dressed wearing very short tight mini skirts, see-through dresses and very low cut blouses showing cleavage and drawing attention to themselves. On several occasions, we saw people openly making out. We quickly felt we have to leave this lust infested place.

“For the world offers only the lust for physical pleasure, the lust for everything we see, and pride in our possessions. These are not from the Father. They are from this evil world.” 1. John 2:16 NLT

Jesus put it this way when He said: “.., anyone who even looks at a woman with lust in his eye has already committed adultery with her in his heart. So if your eye — even if it is your good eye — causes you to lust , gouge it out and throw it away.” (Matthew 5:28-29)

“Women were never meant to be looked at as a sex object, and the way to deal with those things that cause us to lust after sex, is to “run away from sexual sin!” (1. Corinthians 6:18)

“So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. Have nothing to do with sexual sin, impurity, lust, and shameful desires.” Colossians 3:5 NLT

“Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.” Romans 13:12-14 NKJV

Contrary to what the world wants to dictate, the Bible teaches women how to really be attractive:

“And I want women to be modest in their appearance. They should wear decent and appropriate clothing and not draw attention to themselves by the way they fix their hair or by wearing gold or pearls or expensive clothes. For women who claim to be devoted to God should make themselves attractive by the good things they do.” 1. Timothy 2:8-10 NLT.

“Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty that depends on fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should be known for the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God. That is the way the holy women of old made themselves beautiful.” 1. Peter 3:3-5 NLT
