The De-SEX-itization of this Culture

DeSEXitization is my version of "desensitization".

Plainly the title should get you in the 'mood', or what have you, for my say here.

First please read these for me. They are five goals from the 1958 book "The Naked Communist" (five of 45 communists goals that is):
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
18. Gain control of all student newspapers. 

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."

(Score is public domain here).
 
Now what do you think of these five?  Have they come to be?  I can say that 17 and 18 are not completely  done, but pretty close, at least they've nearly got all colleges.   25 is effectively complete, sadly.  But I will say that 27 is close behind to completion and 26 is just being introduced...

I am proud of America but when I see today I am no longer proud of what we've become and what we are becoming.  I see the creature being glorified and man, rather then the creator, Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 1:25).  It is harder for righteous, Christian Godly men to remain righteous.  The strange women lurk about every corner, and grocery store.  And their 'honeycomb' lips are poisoning souls (Prov. 5:3).   But not only strange women but strange men too... and it is very hard to wait, as a single woman (the one NOT hunting for a spouse) and see and hear the culture screaming at us to 'get a boyfriend' and 'have fun'.

As it says in Proverbs 5:8-10 and 20 "8 Remove thy way far from her (the strange woman, or the man), and come not nigh the door of her (his) house: 9 Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel: 10 Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours be in the house of a stranger; 20 ...Why wilt thou... be ravished with a strange woman (or man), and embrace the bosom of a stranger?"

I've seen countless friends, and even some relatives embracing the bosom of strangers, due in part to this desensitization to sin and sex, and nearly everything else except Christ and what he stands for.  They will not hear about morals, purity, righteousness or justness.  They have been successfully de-SEX-itized.  No longer are they sensitive to the sacredness of sex and the glorious fruit it can bring forth.  You see babies are no longer sacred either, they're the 'by product' of 'fun' (sex) and a nuisance and bother!   But if ONLY life and the sex life (especially) were done the Lord's way what blessings they would receive, what treasures Christ will give and peace and health.  They will not heed warning.  But in the end (verse 11 and 12) they will realize their whole life is gone, their beauty, their money, their heart scared, their strength gone, their emotions 'raped' and they will wonder why they didn't listen to the Lord.  They will see their labors were given freely to strangers, their whole life, for a stranger (whom they never married, who can or has walked out on them for younger beauty, love and sex), and the money they worked for, for years was given to that or multiple strangers (boyfriends/girlfriends live-in partners). (Verse 9 and 10).

I pray for this world, that the Christian men marry and beget children and find joy in the wife of their youth, that they won't burn and eventually burn out!  And I pray they won't fall at the hands of her who's feet go down to hell.  Likewise that we women continue to seek the Lord's face and let earthly things fade in his light, and that we only focus on him, and trust him COMPLETELY with our futures (Matt.6:20-21)!  He did clothe the skys with stars and the fields with lilies, oh if we'd only trust the Lord and he said he will take care of us (Matt. 6:25-33)!  And he tells us NOT to worry about tomorrow, as today has enough evil to worry about (verse 34).  He's also promised us the desires of our hearts, and he shall bring them to past, if we only delight our self in him, trust and commit our ways (life) to him (Psalms 37:4-5)!

So folks, if you are in any attraction, relationship or friendship I urge you to read the Proverbs concerning this!  And I'll warn you that if you forced this relationship happen or start (in any tiny way), or that you know is not of God you'd better look out for some heartaches and lessons.  If you're a child of God's he wants to give you the BEST relationship, but if you're forcing it, it may NOT be his will for you.  His will is best for you, let go and let HIM work, when he works out the details everything ALWAYS fall perfectly into place!

For Gentlemen:
Read Proverbs 5, 7 and 31.  Line that girlfriend up with these chapters.  Is she a person you can safely trust (for years, for the rest of your life)?  Or has she cheated on another guy to be with you?  She'll do it again.  And don't obey Hollywood a thin waistline and big bust ISN'T a beautiful woman!  That will fade, you'll be left with her heart and soul in the long haul, is it that beautiful or is she a selfish ugly woman underneath?  Ask her family and friends how she is.  Is she just leading you on?  Is she pushy?  Jumping to the next step?  She's anxious and doesn't trust you, if she is.  Don't idolize her into a goddess, Jesus is REALLY jealous! Does she tell you her stolen waters are sweet, does she offer you sex?  FLEE her dude!!!  I've met several virtuous women- they're out there!  Girls who will value your opinion and leadership.  The sea is full of fish... both good and bad.  In this culture it just seems the bad are outnumbering the good!

For Ladies:
Also read Proverbs 5 and 7, but put man in the place of the strange woman.  A strange man is the same.  Does he line up?  Is he giving you temporary gifts (expensive dinners, romantic dates) in exchange for your body later?  How much is he sacrificing for you, is he REALLY putting in his 'long term' treasures or not?  Are you idolizing him?  Be very careful of that God is REALLY jealous and he WILL take men out of your life if he must, to teach you to NOT turn them into gods.  And don't get carried away by looks.  And read Proverbs 20: 6 and 7, is he a faithful man, who doesn't boast about himself and what he can do?  All of Proverbs is a guide of what a righteous man should be.   And DON'T be hopeless, girls I've met lots of AWESOME dudes around the country who are all in search of good, Godly virtuous women to marry. :) 


So men, women.  The Lord only gave us a guide of what a just person and a fool are.  Examine everyone, even those you call friends, your church friends, your classmates, but especially your 'spouse applicant'.  And lean on GOD's understanding NOT YOUR OWN (Proverbs 3:5)!   Our hearts are desperately wicked (Jeremiah 17:9)!  DO NOT follow your heart... did you know God says you're a fool if you do? (Proverbs 28:26)  And feelings can lead you astray.


Take care and do your fear the Lord?  He won't allow you to continue in sin, in wrong, or in a bad relationship you forced.  You're his kids, fear him, for he'll teach you a big lesson out of it if you continue in it, and those aren't fun.   Though communists (and other satan followers) have put his goals into action beware that the Lord will ultimately win and judge everyone for every tiny action (and thought) they've made in their entire life, that includes me.  So I want to do as many things as I can that will make him a proud father of me his gal, instead of a shameful Dad.   He's taught me he's my God and he wants my full attention. Not half.

And even if we find pleasure in others sinning we are partakers (Romans 1:32)!  So that's any movie with sex before marriage, or sex outside of marriage, you yourself are participating in fornication and adultery!

Bring every thought into captivity (2 Cor. 10:5)!  ('Every' includes 'what's for dinner', God cares.  And satan can even use that thought to cause wrong thoughts to occur.)

Jesus will bless your obedience and faithfulness to him!
Do NOT let the Lord down.  He died on Calvary for you.  If you haven't accepted his truth ask him and he will answer your sincere questions.  He knows your heart.

Forever his forgiven child,
Faith

Colorado

Here's a tiny update. :)   So we finally got home from Colorado!  It was all fun and busy, but it is good to be back. 


We had a very blessed trip.  I am learning that we are just tiny tools in God's big picture!  Its amazing how God can use us.  And I am amazed how we can just help others with our talents.  And we were able to relax too!  God really let me see many different walks of life, and I was able to learn more about the blessings God has given others.

So here are a few photos for you all.  :)


This is our friend's store where we spent most of our time.

This was lunch after one of the many churches we sang at.

The view from our new friend's home, up on the mountain!

Hiking on the 4th!!! So fun! And it was cool weather... C:
