Satan hates sex. He hates it. Are you having trouble believing that? It smacks you in the face doesn’t it. Sex was a gift given to humanity by God. It is the one act wherein, humankind directly contributes to the ongoing creation in procreation. It also symbolically creates one flesh, thereby best reflecting the Divine nature. We are His image. During marital intercourse, we best express our image and likeness to God. It was sex, and procreation, that ultimately lead to his defeat by Jesus on Calvary.
So, yeah, satan hates it. He hates it. That’s why he has perverted it. In order to undermine the Divine image, and continue his mission of malice and destruction toward creation. He had to make it dirty, to steal the sanctity of the act. He had to make it homosexual to rob one gender of the other, and remove the divine image from the act. He took it out of the safety of the marriage relationship to make it dangerous, to plunder it of the psychological, emotional, and physical virtues. And he had to make it public, cheapening it so it would lose its value. So, that’s why everywhere you look it sex, sex sex, and gay characters on tv, and adultery on the rise and 53 million abortions, and so on.
I grew up in central Ohio, and we had our pick of three great theme parks. Every year we’d pile into the family minivan and drive down to Cincinnati, for an exciting weekend of camping and roller coasters at King’s Island. One year my brother, Joey, begged dad for a big plate of cheese fries. Dad protested, but ultimately Joey got the fries, with the stipulation that he eat them all. About halfway through the plate, he began to complain that his stomach ached. He asked to be allowed to throw away the rest of the cheese fries, but my dad was a stickler.
Joey ate until he was green and eventually barfed up most of what he’d crammed down. I guess he wasn’t fooling about the upset stomach. Needless to say we all felt badly, none more so than Joey. And we all had to put up with his whining for the rest of the day. It was classic. Everybody paid the price that day, my dad, my brother, and me. It as too much grease, and too much starch. Eating like that will make you sick. Garbage in, garbage out.
Is it just me or is anybody else sick of all the gay stuff they expect us to tolerate. I mean, come on! It has invaded every story line. Even S.E. Hinton, author of the The Outsiders, is being shamed by the social justice crowd for saying her characters are not gay. Not content to force current gay based storylines on us, they also want to rewrite history with a gay agenda. I’m telling you this, right now people are starting to feel the belly ache from ingesting what isn’t good for them. Soon will come the retch.
Maybe you don’t mind shows like Game of Thrones, Ellen, Modern Family or Scandal. It’s just TV, right? We all admit it isn’t ideal that these programs have such lurid and debauched content, but “come on, it’s a great show.” I get it. I really do. Missing out on what the culture is talking about is not fun. How do we disengage from these cultural touchstones, but remain relevant and stay clued-in to what’s going on in the world? Being in the world, but not of it, is a real headscratcher.
It feels like you miss out, when you eschew these types of programs. Believe me I know. It kills me not to be able to join in the discussion, when friends are talking about them. I’m left out of a conversation, and that is a huge loss for me. C’est la vie. The christian life is also about sacrifice. Living in a Godly Culture demands we sacrifice some things, godless things. But the scriptures say, “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” (Philippians 4:8, NIV).
