The Right Remedy for
Our sex-saturated culture is reaping a heavy price for
its rebellion to God. Most vows of
“till death do us part” are broken on the rocks of divorce. Since 1970, unwed teen pregnancies have increased
87% and teen abortions have risen 67%.
A third of pregnancies now end in abortion. Fifteen million Americans,
including three million teenagers, will contract an STD this year. A majority of the sexually active women
now have the human papilloma virus, which is responsible for 16,000 new cases of
cervical cancers and 5,000 deaths annually. These statistics, which come from the
Centers for Disease Control, are foreboding. We’ve spurned the laws of nature to our
Porn spam – cybersex in chat

licking each other’s breasts in Columbus’ gay pride parade – intern exploitation

is candy-coated poison? Will it

response to this looming medical and social crisis, our government has spent three billion
dollars to promote contraception and “safe sex” since 1970. It’s been a three billion dollar failure! One large study proved a correlation

shocked to learn what the sex educators are teaching their
kids! Planned Parenthood, the
largest baby-killing organization in America, and the Sexuality Information and
Education Council of the U.S. (SIECUS) are the chief distributors of condoms,
contraceptives, and “morning after” abortifacent pills to public school
teens. According to their “safe
sex” curriculum, which has been adopted by the Ohio Dept. of Health and the
Dept. of Education, oral sex, mutual masturbation, and “outercourse” are “low
risk” behaviors. “Mature teen sex”
is “responsible sex.” Abortion and
homosexuality are presented as valid choices, and youth are encouraged to
explore their sexual orientation.
No reference is made to marriage.
Our nation’s remedy for the crisis has been to prescribe more of the
Brace for my coup de grace, America: “Marriage is honorable in
all, and the bed undefiled, but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge”
(Hebrews 13:4). See also I Corin.
6:9-11, Gal. 5:19-21, and Matt. 5:27-30.
God designed sex between one man and one woman for life, and premarital
sex, extramarital lust, adultery, and homosexuality are violations of the law of
nature and nature’s God. Even if
you luckily escape the diseases rampant among the sexually deviant, you’ll not
escape on Judgment Day. There’s no
such thing as “safe sin.”
Thankfully, God’s a merciful Savior, but His mercy is reserved for the
