What potential for blessing there is in this wonderful gift of God and yet what havoc has been wrought by its abuse.
In every man and woman there exist sex instincts and wants.
And yet what ignorance prevails about the real purpose of these gifts of God to mankind.
But the God Who created these desires has also ordained the means for their legitimate satisfaction. This is evident from the fact that it was created before man fell into sin and existed in a world which God Himself considered "Very Good".
But ever since the Fall of man, his view of sex has been perverted and he himself has become a slave to sexual desire.
I have used these words in a generic way to refer to mankind in general - and so women are included too.
The places where this is so will be obvious to the reader.
As a result, sex which was meant to be a blessing to man has become a burden instead.
The word "sex" itself has an impure connotation in the minds of most people today because of man's repeated abuse of this God-given function.There are some matters on which one cannot be dogmatic. But there are other matters on which one cannot but be firm. Most evangelical Christians in India, I fear, have soft-pedaled these issues for too long.On such matters I have expressed myself unequivocally. Many a young life might have been saved from ruin if Christian leaders had spoken with a firmer voice on these matters.There is nothing inherently sinful in dynamite, it all depends on how and for what purpose it is used: so with sex.If accepted as God's gift and used wisely under God's control, it can be the means of man's highest fulfilment.Chapter Six, "", has been very kindly contributed by my wife.
