“The world has an exalted view of individuals who go around sleeping with many people. But what is highly esteemed in the eyes of man is an abomination in the sight of God (Luke 16:15). Satan wants to twist our desires so that things which were intended to bless us and others, become an instrument to destroy us and those around us. –Deacon Cliff, Christian Apologetic
4 Effects of Sexual Promiscuity
- You will lose the ability to fully bond with your spouse later on in marriage. Sex is created to join one individual to another spirit, soul, and body. It is pouring your life into someone else. The person who has no regard for the blessedness and power of sex, wants a little bit of many people, but gets none of any. They are not really bonding with any of them.
- You will lose value for those things which are truly valuable in life. Sin changes our values over time-it doesn’t happen overnight. People have the ability to eventually do things that they would once never dream of doing. The ability to treat people like objects, and an inability to want to love, or actually love someone else.
- You will end up treating people lightly. People who treat sex lightly end up treating people lightly. In addition to losing our ability to bond and losing value for the valuable, we lose our ability to care about people. This is due to selfishness created by a gradual change in values due to sexual sin. As a result little regard is given to a spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend, and even the children who are a product of that relationship.
- You will become more and more an instrument of destruction. Satan wants to twist our desires so that things which were intended to bless us and others, such as the sexual bond between one man and one woman in marriage, become an instrument to destroy us and those around us.
We may have damaged ourselves through sexual sin, but God wants to forgive and restore us. If you profess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you shall be saved Romans 10:9. Ask for the Holy Spirit to lead you into the truth and reality of God’s willingness and desire to forgive you, to cleanse from all unrighteousness, and open up your eyes to His love, His goodness, His ways and to His wisdom, especially in the area of sexuality.
