Sexual Revolution

February 17, 2008

“But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts.” – Romans 13:14

The 1960’s ushered in the sexual revolution. They called it the new morality, but it wasn’t new; it was very old. The Greeks and Romans embraced it thousands of years ago, and soon afterwards they were history. It was introduced thousands of years before that in the days of Noah. At that time, God got so disgusted with the filth that He gave the earth a good bath.

How is the sexual revolution progressing in the 21st century?

The latter part of the 20th century ushered in an epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases–some of them like AIDS are deadly. The sexual fears began to multiply. To save the revolution, the idea of safe sex was introduced, but it wasn’t safe–it was just as deadly. So much for utopian dreams!

When you think about it, the sexual revolution has been a disaster. Countless lives have been lost and countless others are disillusioned with the emptiness. That’s why God gave a warning when He invented sex. It’s great, but only as an expression of love between a man and woman in marriage. That’s revolutionary! The ultimate safe sex.
