What if There Were a Simple Answer to Our Nation's Sexual Mess?

Everyone is affected somewhere by pornography, abortion, sexual harassment, LGBQT, divorce, adultery, pedophilia, carnal entertainment, seductive advertising and so on. Pictures I don't even want to see seem to pop up and appear everywhere.

Everyone wants to do their own thing, but nobody wants someone else to do his or her thing to them. They say, "I have a right to do whatever I want." They don't ask, "What is the right thing to do?"

Which Way?

It seems to me there is only one way out of this moral confusion and sexual labyrinth: A man marries a woman; they love one another; they stay loyal to one another; they raise their children together; they teach their children to do the same.

It sounds kind of oversimplistic. Yet I've tried to think through all the myriad other possibilities, and none of them seem to work. Every other option causes enormous damage—emotionally, socially, physically, economically and morally:

One Family

God is called our "heavenly Father;" we are His children. Yeshua is called our heavenly bridegroom; we are His bride. We men should be loving fathers to our children and loving husbands to our wives.

Marriage and family only work when they are filled with this kind of gracious, generous, self-sacrificing love. Divine love can heal sexual deviance. Faith, marriage and family all seem to fit together into one picture that is both healthy and natural.

Wouldn't that just seem to make things work out okay?
