THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW
Part 14: Let's Talk About Sex
Jesus knew that sexual pleasure was a weakness of the
human race. He knew that erotic activity started in the mind of a
man when he saw a woman and lusted after her. Thus, He enhanced the
seventh commandment, affirming it was not enough to simply refrain
from promiscuity, but lusting after a woman made you just as guilty.
Jesus was about thirty years old when He taught the sermon on the
mountain. The God-man was a healthy male virgin and He was tempted
just like everyone else. He said it was better to pluck out your eye
or cut off your hand if you’re addicted to pornography and
masturbation because it leads to affliction by evil spirits.
Furthermore, the commercialization of sexual gratification has been
exploited and Americans spend billions of dollars every year on
paraphernalia. There is an epidemic of sex addiction in the churches
and pastors aren’t even talking about it.
