“Get Naked Christian! …Becoming & Staying Sexually Healthy & Well”
Another Prophetic Prompting
Committing sexual sin, like all others, always has negative consequences. God outlines these curses His chosen people can suffer from sin in Deuteronomy 28:15-68.
Surveys indicate there is a rampant increase among both Christian men and women of the use of pornography and masturbation, plus adultery and fornication. (Josh McDowell Ministry’s site at https://www.josh.org/?s=Masturbation and https://www.josh.org/?s=Pornography).
The reaping of the curses for these sins applies to both the individuals practising these behaviours, as well as the corporate Body of Jesus.
Sexual addiction/sin is an intimacy and relational dysfunction. It is a selfish act and increasingly isolates its practitioners from those they say they love! (Galatians 6:7-9)
We walk in the light when we tell the truth, and confess our sins to God and one another. (1 John 1:6-10) Only when we do, can we be healed and purified. (James 5:14-16)
As true Jesus Followers, “walking in the light” is, metaphorically, being completely naked with others about our sexual purity. (John 3:19-21 & 1 Peter 1:16-17)
We can only obey Holy Spirit’s command to “walk in the light” and be totally free when we are completely truthful, about everything, to God, others we trust, plus our wives, if we are married. (Ephesians 4:22-25)
“We’re as sick as the secrets we keep and the sin we don’t confess to God, plus those we trust. It is easier to obey the seventh Commandment, “no adultery”, when we first obey the ninth, “no lying”!”~ © gfp ’42™
But, it is being dangerously honest with those whom you are the same which will produce the most rapid healing in, and growth, for you!
The core thoughts above are expressed in, and modified from, “Get Naked, A Man’s Guide to Great Sex” by Mark Peterson, p. 15-16. It’s one of the resources used in my “Men’s Sexual Purity Small Group”.
Blessings in Yeshua as you remain obedient to Him! (John 14:21)
