“Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.” Titus 2:12; Galatians 5:24-25.
When society uses the word “love” in this generation, we need to say, “Well, what do you mean by love? Can you spell that out for me? Because I think we’re using the same word, but we might mean different things, and so we’re talking past each other,” and I think in large part that’s why we’ve lost some of this spiritual-cultural value-conversation.
In this present Month, I’ve seen many forgo virtue for viagra, forgo sense for sex, forgo love for lust. Married or not, less do many know that “it loving to oppose adultery and fornication” Yes. It is also loving to oppose pornography and many more. Yes, it is. All because “It’s not glorifying to God”. It’s not loving to either Christain or unbeliever adult, youth or teenagers, women or the person doing it. Yes, we oppose negative love and support possitive love for the same reason. Not because it’s some special category, but because God has spoken about what God-honoring yet actually-loving sexual expression looks like. Therefore, everything outside of getting to satisfy God in our acts but our selfish self must be excluded/minus. Oh! That will equal to positive love! Peace be unto You!
