Hooking Up

April 25, 2008

“…the body is not for immorality, but for the Lord;” – 1 Corinthians 6:13

In Tom Wolfe’s book, Hooking Up, he writes, “Sexual revolution was a rather prim term for the lurid carnival actually taking place in the mightiest country on earth…an estimated 50% of all (Web) hits were at sites purveying what was known as ‘adult material.'”

In the year 2000, “hooking up” was a term known to almost every American child over the age of nine, but to only a relatively small percentage of their parents, who thought it was used in the old sense of meeting someone. Children knew hooking up meant having a sexual experience.

No doubt, America’s sexual standards are not what God had in mind when He invented sex. Sex is His idea, but for only one setting–in the context of marriage between a man and a woman. It’s difficult to live by, and is radically counter-cultural, but God loves you and wants the best for you. Do you have the courage to trust Him in this and every area of your life? You won’t be disappointed.
