Sex screams the existence of Jesus
I wrote a blog similar to this one before, but it still resonates strong within me. I really enjoy reading books on Christian apologetics. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, apologetics is material written or spoken in defense of the Gospel. It is an offensive stance that proudly proclaims the truth of the Bible. Years ago when Christianity was first spreading across the known world, many lies or rumors started circulating about Christians. One of the many things said was that Christians sacrificed their children to God. Obviously, this was completely untrue. There were many others things said against us Christians, even that we were atheists because we didn’t have an idol that we worshiped. So they accused us of being atheists, which was a big no-no in the Roman Empire. So God raised up many wonderful people who stood up and told the truth about Christians and defended our faith against the hate-filled lies and propaganda. Men like Justin Martyr and Augustine stood up and defended the faith with the truth. Apologetics also deals with the general defense of the gospel. Men like Ken Ham and C.S. Lewis show that the Gospel is the most reasonable and logical and true way to live and love. I’ve been devouring the Answers Books compiled by Ken Ham recently, which show through reason, logic and actual science (not fantasy and stupid assumptions) that the Bible is true from cover to cover.
This blog of course is devoted to the Bible and sexuality. I don’t believe that things that are not prohibited in the Bible should be abstained from in the present. Why make up a bunch of rules that God didn’t speak?
Sexuality is very fascinating for many reasons. Lately, I’ve noticed that all human sexuality is screaming in defense of the Bible. We are told some science fiction called evolution (molecules to man) is the reason that we exist. The best lies are those mixed with some facts. Evolution is no different. It takes a few facts such as natural selection and then throws in completely unprovable and just plain stupid assumptions about the origin of man. There are many ways to disprove this lie, in Answers in Genesis ministries and Creation Research we have scores of actual science and logic that shows that only a foolish man would believe in evolution.
But the logic and passion of sex is another screaming in your face reminder that Jesus is, was and always will be. After America turned our backs on our creator in the sixties (outlawed prayer and Bible reading and study in the school system). The free love movement took place. People were encouraged to have sex with whomsoever other person that wanted to have sex with them. Free love. They even gave it a catchy title because we all desperately long for love. This philosophy was inevitable in a culture that denies God. When we threw God out of schools and public places a rush of barbaric practices rushed in to take the place of true love and morality. Free love was one of these barbaric practices. Yet, about fifty years after the supposed “sexual revolution”, people still need something to stand on that separates us from beasts. Even the most sexually deviant common citizens among us have a few “rules” that they live by. Of course there always have been and always will be “monsters” who lay aside every vestige of morality and prey and rape anything they can get their hands on, including children. But the overwhelming majority of people still have to try to create their own morality in the absence of God’s Word that once filled our schools. This is yet simply another logical and reasonable proof of a divinely created world that was framed by the word of God. People who sleep around may have rules such as never to take advantage of an unconscious person or drunken person. People who practice homosexuality, even have certain standards for sexuality. They break one of the most fundamental laws of human sexuality but still they must have some sort of standard that makes them feel moral and just. Most try to be loyal to one person. It’s like the phrase “honor among thieves”. People need some sense of order even when they live outside the perfect order that God shows us in His Word, the Bible. This overwhelming need for order and a form of moral code clearly screams the presence of Jesus. They don’t want to live by God’s Word so they invent their own morality so they can feel justified and somewhat moral. I’ve seen people who rabidly promote homosexuality, but then have a problem with someone doing something that isn’t wrong, like enjoying good pornography or nudity. Why? because they need some semblance to order, because they are created in the image of the God of order and not chaos. The Egyptians had many whacked up beliefs but they did believe the battle in the world was chaos verses order. God’s Word is order because He created us and the world we live in. When we don’t live by God’s Word we must have some sense of order or we feel unsafe and vulnerable. If evolution were true we would all be having sex with each other without the slightest sense of guilt or shame. We would have sex whenever we wanted with whomsoever we wanted and not feel anything tugging at our hearts. If evolution is true, why would any sexual act be wrong? Incest, rape, orgies, homosexual acts, having sex with animals, sex slaves (or slavery in general), prostitution, having sex with a dead body, and so on, should all be perfectly acceptable if evolution is true. But you see something completely different in the world. Even those who practice sexual sins try to create a morality that justifies the sin they are committing but says others actions are bad. Why do they do that? Because God created a beautiful and passionate world, but also an orderly and logical one as well. And the order and logical part of His world give us a safe and perfect place to enjoy the passions He has gloriously given to us. Sex like all other facets of creation scream that there is a God and His name is Jesus.
