Freedom From Restraint

The “politically-correct” crowd who embrace pluralism, atheism, agnosticism, and humanism, generally reject the God of the Bible, and the principles of morality contained therein. They define “liberty” as the right to believe in and practice whatever they choose. Freedom to them means “freedom from restraint!” They wish to be left free to indulge their fleshly appetites fully. Thus, we see the rise of free-love, co-ed dormitories, and living together in a sexual relationship without being married. Many insist on being unhampered in their engagement in illicit sexual activity, i.e. pre-marital, extra-marital, and homosexual sex.

 

This sexual anarchy has naturally resulted in cultural catastrophes and a trilogy of social terror. We are witnessing (1) widespread divorce for any reason, and the breakdown of the home and family; (2) legalized abortion; and (3) the legal sanction and growing social acceptance of homosexuality, same-sex marriage, and transgenderism as moral, and normal behavior. But God says such is neither normal or moral! 

The widespread acceptance of these three factors undoubtedly shows that illicit sexual activity inevitably destroys marriage, and leads to the destruction of children-either by killing them in the womb, abusing them, or neglecting to rear them properly. Many of the ills of society, and the corruption of our culture, is traceable to this fundamental lack of sexual restraint. How badly we need the Bible’s advice: “flee fornication” (1 Cor. 6: 18), and “flee also youthful lusts” (2 Tim.2: 22), and “Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled, but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.” (Heb. 13: 4). Think on these things.
