Society is searching for ways to enjoy this life without any regard to eternity. One of the ways they have found to enjoy this life is by committing sexual immorality, such as homosexuality, fornication, and adultery. Everyone wants to be happy but the price of this kind of happiness, if left unchecked, will eventually bring death (Jas. 1:14-15).
Along with uncontrolled lust comes some unpleasant and unwanted side effects. Various diseases (AIDS, Syphilis, Gonorrhea, etc), unwanted pregnancies, and divorces are some of the consequences which follow these inordinate desires. Man’s answer to all of these diseases is to have ‘safe sex” in order that mankind can continue to have pleasure and disobey God.
God has provided for the lawful fulfillment of the desires that exist in men and women. Hebrews 13:4 states, “Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge.” 1 Corinthians 7:23 says, “But because of immoralities, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband. Let the husband fulfill his duty to his wife, and likewise also the wife to her husband.” This is the only form of ‘safe sex’ which has God’s approval. Any sex outside of a legal marriage is not safe because it is sin, and sin left unrepentant will cost you your eternal soul (Gal. 5:19-21).
Children, as well as most adults, needs to hear God’s Word on the subject of ‘safe sex’. Parents need to teach their children the sanctity of marriage, and the need for them to wait until they are married before engaging in a God approved sexual relationship. Everyone needs to be taught that marriage was given by God under the direction of His Law and not man’s law. Homosexual and lesbian marriages and adulterous marriages are not approved by God and never will be. ‘Safe sex’, God’s way is marriage between one man and one woman for life (Gen 2:24). Only God’s law will end the problems that come from sexual immorality. Unwanted pregnancies, abortions, sexually transmitted diseases, divorces, and the such like that accompany these sins will end if we simply obey God’s divine Word.
