If there was no safeguard against this, families would break down, and so would the moral fabric of society.
Perhaps you yourself have already been a victim of some of this. It hurts the children Children love to see that their parents love each other.
To be honest with you though, the power of the Holy Spirit available to a Christian is more powerful than sex. Some may never believe or understand that – but it doesn’t change the facts. He is more powerful than anything He created, including sex. The lack of this sometimes leads people to search for fulfilment in sexual activity outside of God’s guidelines.
This kind of search will prove to be frustrating and ultimately destructive.
You can get sexually transmitted diseases through fornication. There will be a stronger barrier between you and God which you will find it difficult to overcome.
A lot of people who claim to have “intellectual problems” with the gospel actually have a problem with sexual immorality.
There are always going to be times when the thought comes that things could be better with someone else. We all want to be loved, appreciated and have pleasure and fulfilment in our lives. Lots of people have now died of sexually transmitted diseases.God gave us all the capacity to love and be loved, to have special friendships with others. But if fire gets out of control it can burn your house down. Modern man may mock, but the best way to avoid diseases like AIDS, syphillus and others is to limit your sex life to just one lifelong partner who has not gotten infected with these diseases through promiscuity.He also gave us a sexual nature, and sexual desires. But it is a powerful gift, and it can be abused or perverted. And until you find that person, abstinence won’t kill you.This was not just so that we would keep the human race going, but also because God wanted us to enjoy oneness with a life partner. In fact, it will release a lot of creative energy which you can apply to achieving in many areas of life. My wife Marilena has written something as advice to girls who would like to find the right partner!
I waited until I was 28 before I got married, and God has given me a wonderful wife.
