Vital salvation

Wisdom will save you also from the adulterous woman,
from the wayward woman with her seductive words,
who has left the partner of her youth
and ignored the covenant she made before God.
Proverbs 2:16-17

For man it has always been a mystery what happens in the mind of a woman. Even more mysterious is what happens in the mind of an unfaithful wife. Everything she does to get away with it and give vent to her carnal passions even at risk of the stability of her marriage is beyond comprehension. The typical arguments that are invoked to “justify” an infidelity, namely hormone unbalance, quality of parenting received, examples watched at childhood and peer pressure, are forces that may exert certain influence but are not the fundamental reason for what happened. Underlying everything is the sinful nature of man. Another way to describe it is the weakness of the flesh. In marriage the man demands and deserves respect as a woman requires and deserves love. Obviously. adulterous behavior presents a stark contrast with the respect due to her husband.

Although adultery seems to have become something typical for human beings in all cultures, this does not make it less harmful and abhorrent. He or she who maintains an adulterous relationship can not say that he or she is being controlled by the Holy Spirit. On the contrary, that person is being absolutely controlled by his flesh, the world and Satan, that is, it is totally in the hands of the enemy. The apostle Paul wrote: “Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.” Let us forget, then, the past and let us run towards our heavenly future state, always obeying God’s precepts. Only to God be the glory!

The sex trap

My son, give me your heart
and let your eyes delight in my ways,
for an adulterous woman is a deep pit,
and a wayward wife is a narrow well.
Like a bandit she lies in wait
and multiplies the unfaithful among men.
Proverbs 23:26-28

One of the most destructive messages that the world sends daily to humanity is that sexual licentiousness is acceptable and normal. If by normal they mean widespread and prevalent they are right but fornication and adultery are abominable in the eyes of God and directly undermine the stability of the family and thus of society. With the excuse that they are simply carried away by the love they feel, they give vent to their sexual desires and both women and men fall into a trap from which escape is extremely difficult. Freud and his followers wanted to make the world believe that the vast majority of mental and behavioral disorders have their origin in the repression of sexual instincts. The solution, according to the famous Austrian psychologist is to unleash those instincts to release the tension caused by the opposing forces of the Id and the Superego. This liberation of the instincts resulted in a society dominated by the Playboy philosophy, free love, open marriage, free unions, feminism and homosexuality activism, among others.

The word of God teaches that sexuality is a good thing if it is practiced within the sanctity of marriage. Any other expression of sexuality outside the marriage becomes debauchery and sin and as such can only lead to destruction and death. Anyone who possesses wisdom knows the signs identifying the traps that have been lying on his way to catch and destroy him and so he can avoid them. He who is well grounded in the Word of God will be protected and will not be deceived by the false promises of freedom and well-being offered by the world and the adversary to those who want to live by their animal instincts. Find guidance on the word of God and you will get wisdom and joy to boot. To God alone be the glory!
