God is given to boundaries not to harvest help want to talk to you on the subject.
Safe sex, where nothing else I have your attention… Planning sex is to bring a man and a woman in the sanctity of marital love to a sense of oneness where they become one way I want talk to you about the way for happy marriage and for safe sex, welcome to the dynamic teaching messages, master teacher and author Adrian Rogers, sexual immorality completely disintegrates the foundation of the family. A culture that celebrates sexual immorality will result in the following nation, God's plan for sex exists in the bounds of holy matrimony to become one flesh. First Corinthians 7 gives a clear biblical emphasis on safe sex. If you have your Bible turn there now will begin in verse one as Adrian Rogers offers more on the sanctity of safe sex. I want to live with me in first Corinthians chapter 7 verse one now concerning the things where he wrote them to me is good for man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and everyone have her own husband. I called the sanctity of safe sex God has set some definite boundaries at all. The physical act of marriage and without these boundaries nation city of family cannot exist. Can you imagine what it would be like trying to play football game without any rules without any boundaries for baguettes of all only goes up to the stands with lot of folks and get her mouth God has given some boundaries not to harm us but to help us to protect us inside these boundaries.
Sex is a wonderful gift of God not God's plan is sex is to bring a man and a woman in the sanctity of marital love to a sense of oneness where they become one flesh is what we call the sanctity of safe sex.
I want you to notice the selflessness of safe sex look on if you will, in verses three and four. Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence and likewise also the wife unto the husband. But why have not power that were power means authority of her own body, but the husband and likewise also the husband has not power of his own body, but the wife now. What is the selflessness of safe sex is giving oneself the keyword here is the word render let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence and likewise also the wife render to the house last is always marked by getting love, real love is always marked by giving in God uses this word render which literally means to give notice.
It is the husband is mentioned first because the husband is to be the initiator verse three. Let the husband give to the wife her due that time, loving sexual embrace that is due to her and God made the husband to be the initiator he made the wife to be responsible, and if a husband wants his wife to respond in love. He is rendered to her that intimacy now.
Many times we husbands are so hardheaded so stupid.
We don't know how to show that love that benevolence to our wife Mary is a selflessness in safe sex, but I want you to notice not only the sanctity of and the selflessness of it, but I want you to notice the security of notice in verse five defraud you not one the other, except it be with consent for time that she may give yourselves to fasting and prayer, and come together again nice talking about sexually come together again, that Satan tempts you not for your incompetency. That means because of your lack of self-control, Afrin the weight I have a secure home is to see that God has one plan and one plan only for husband and wife for man and a woman to come together sexually. It is in the bonds of holy matrimony.
God says it is to be a selfless laying a giving thing. He calls it benevolence, and God says he will do this W security. But if we don't do this, we leave ourselves. Why do an attack by the debtor on loving home is an insecure home and on loving home.
A home that does not have a proper sexual attitude is a whole that is open to an attack by the enemy how we need to understand different date is the security of safe sass Bible teaches that we should earnestly try to satisfy the need of our partner. Now I want to move on and I want to talk not only about safe sex all the way of happiness for the married life, but I want to talk to you little bit more about the way of helpfulness for the single life very interesting you say pastor I'm not married and you say this is only for those who married what about me.
What about the single life see what God's word is about the single life birth.
All I want to say this about the single life. It is a good life a good life. Look in verse one again now concerning the things whereof you wrote to me, it is good for a man not to touch a woman doesn't say is best says it's good it's okay.
You'll have to be married and you are not losing some super happiness. If you stay single.
There is a bona fide single life and it's time we learned that is good for man not to touch a woman. I think some of us are married need to stop looking down our noses at people who will settle for the single status update a lot of things worse than not being married.
A number one is being married to the wrong person. Now listen is a good life. Verse one but it is a gifted life. Verse six Paul says I speak this by permission and not a commandment.
For I would that all men were even as myself wallet when he wrote this was unmarried.
He had been married. I believe it is now unmarried.
I think he was a widower I speak this by permission. Not of commandment, why would that all men were even as myself.
But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that man, that is, some people are gifted to be single. There are definite advantages to being single now and Paul says I write this by permission. What he's literally saying is I'm writing and wave concession. I'm giving you permission will have to get married. Paul is not beating the drum for the single life easier.
Simply saying if you don't want to get married, that's all right. He is saying that you're not going to be.
However, more spiritual if you stay single.
What Paul is saying is that there are some people who are call and some people who are spiritually gifted to serve God as single people you get married folk you take on a load of obligation, a person, for example, might be called of God in emergency. The serve God as a missionary in a particular mission field where calls for single person, he may want to be an itinerant person to travel a lot. God says for you is best that you stay single by if that is God's plan for you.
God will give you give of celibacy that if God doesn't give you that gift and if God doesn't give you that calling. You should assume they want to marry.
But if God gives you the idea and God gives you that calling then thank God for. But remember, it is a good life is a gifted life, but it must be a guarded life that look if you will, in verses eight and nine of the same chapter he said I say therefore to the unmarried and the widows is good for them if they abide even as I is fine, but I watch verse nine, every single person you listen to this, but if they cannot contain bad is that they cannot control themselves sexually let them marry, for it is better to marry than to burn is not talking about burning in hell here. He's talking about burning with the fires of loss.
The burn with desire that if you find these flames of passion in your heart you find that desire that that your four wife that hunger flight physical relationship must not you come together sexually without being married. God says if you can't control yourself. But there's absolutely no way under God's son that you would be sexually active, and please God without being married. You understand that their friend we need to be so clear about this matter. The single life is a good life is a gifted life it is to be a guarded life and therefore it will be a godly life. Look in chapter 7 and verse 32.
Again, I would have you without carefulness or he that is unmarried care for the things that belong to the Lord how he may please the Lord. Thank God for those who remain single that they can please the Lord. God gives them calls them the special life. Now I want you to think not only there for about the way of happiness for the married person and a way of helpfulness for the single person, but I want to think of the way of holiness for every person married are single LS backup formal chapter 7 and look with me in chapter 6 again and see what the apostle Paul is talking about. Look with me in first Corinthians 6 and verse nine know you not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God that if you are living in sexual immorality.
I want you listen to me right now know you not, don't you know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God be not to see neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate.
That means perverts sodomites effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind nor thieves or covetous drunkards, nor revivalism, nor extortioners shall inherit the kingdom of God. I doesn't mean if you done any of these things that you can go to heaven but notice verse 11 and such were some of you, but your wash your sanctified yard justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the spirit of God. Thank God for that. I don't care how terrible your sexual sin may have been. Thank God for God who can cleanse you wash you justify you and sanctify you and your son but I will take some if immorality is your lifestyle.
If you are practicing premarital promiscuity by post marital infidelity. And God doesn't lay the Rado new I wouldn't give half a hallelujah for your (you are going to hell. Don't say that friend says God says we see how the devil was told this generation. I don't know how we get off with thinking we can just lay my hands on the face of God to God.
I know you said, thou shall not commit adultery but I'm going to commit adultery in a way I'm going to heaven, God, I know you simply fornication, but I'm going to practice fornication, and I'm going to know you know you not see God is not mocked. Who are you, thank you.
To break the laws of God. You might go to. You say you mean brother Rogers find save and I've committed that's and I lost my salvation.
No no different. A Christian can slip and fall into temptation and fall into sin all day.
One thing if you save the Holy Spirit. Tear him up on the inside God. The Bible says that which is born of God does not habitually practice sin afraid I'm telling you there is a way of happiness from the married life. There is a way of helpfulness for the single life, but there must be the way of holiness for every life is what God says we say why did God say that why is God so hung up on us living Chase computer live.
I'll tell you why, because he loves you. When God says now shall not a single purchaser.
When God says now shall the saying help yourself to happiness. Let me give you a reason for keeping yourself morally pure. Number one immorality is psychologically harmful. It is psychologically harmful. Francis J.
Bryson, who is the former president of the American psychiatric Association said premarital sex relations resulting from the so-called numerology have greatly increased the number of young people in mental hospital not smarter than God. It is psychologically harmful. Second reason M around kills true love. When you commit immorality with any person, there is a basic loss of self-respect. The more permissiveness prevails in any society.
More women looked old as objects to be used rather than people to be love and tenderness and real love disappear. Third-graders, immorality, premarital sex always endangers future marital happiness. It follows as night follows day there is a loss of sensitivity bears a loss of the true depth and beauty of love. Surveys have shown that those who were sexually pure when they went to the marriage altar have the highest opportunity and the most likelihood to have a happy marriage. Sex is so bad outside marriage because it's so good inside marriage. Reason number four. The most unstable people are those who practice what is called free love, which is a contradiction in terms, because there is no such thing as free love. Love takes commitment, the less education a person has, the more his tendency to be impure, the more education the less tendency surveys are shown. It is not the stable growing self-reliant personality that dabbles in 40 sex more often. It is a person who is insecure whose anxious and whose fearful number five immorality is one of the greatest dangers to any society.
It was the sand that led to the downfall of Greece and Rome and other subsidence given when he wrote of the fall of the Roman Empire listed that in his first apply reason immorality is the enemy of the home and the enemy of the home is the enemy of the nation. Number six, there's always the danger of conception where people talk about illegitimate babies illegitimate babies illegitimate babies, my friend. There are no illegitimate children, but there plenty of illegitimate parents.
That baby then asked to be born baby has arrived and unborn child has a right to come to birth and maturity, but they also have a right to be born into a whole were husband and wife are committed one to another. Number seven, there is the danger of disease is a very real danger are high-powered drugs or failings is not just AIDS that were facing all kinds of numbing horrible vile jealousy disease is leading away with saying about me not to say God is not more romance those that shall he also reap number eight. There is a clear playing teaching of the word of God and so you don't need the other seven reasons just got God's word. God's word says thou shalt not commit adultery. God's holy inerrant and infallible word says fornication able to not smarter than God get an automobile. It has instruction manuals have put oil in the crankcase you say will I will put molasses in mind will help yourself may have told you in God is more about this then you know except my faith that God lives you friend.
God's laws, and for your welfare but I want to tell you different. Not only are God's laws for your welfare. If you break God's laws, God's going to judge you law without penalties only advising God's not giving advice safe sex get married why whoever be loyal to.
I'm so glad I went to the marriage altar burgeoning married a virgin. I wouldn't take anything for my Christian home. I'm not trying to put anybody under guilt.
Because the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses and God forgives, but I'm telling you it's time that we parents and pastors and people held up a standard for this is right is what God said and it's good there's a way to happen is for the married life is a way of bonus for the single life appears to be the way of holiness where every line that my friend is safe to say, aren't you glad that God has given us the standard for a happy and holy life in community with one another love worth finding whatever great honors is to come alongside you and pray with you and for you.
