Again About Sex And Sexuality

I have been contemplating on this subject of sex and sexuality broadly and I want to address this message from a point of seeking the true face of God.

Human beings were created by God to be in companionship, that is why God created all things and gave man authority over the lands, He then created woman from a man’s rib that they may be joined as one and fill the earth.

The subject of sex and sexuality has become a discussion of controversy and a lot has been said about it. People with different sexual orientation have the need to be accepted and understood just like everybody else, others just want to be left alone and love who they love in peace.

This year, more than ever, it seems that there’s been this explosion of identity: people are, not so nonchalantly, making known their individual sexuality. “LGBTQ” is no longer adequate nomenclature. In 2019, it has expanded to: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transsexual, 2/Two-Spirit, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, Ally, Pansexual, Agender, Gender Queer, Graysexual, Demisexual, Polysexual, Cisgender, Bigender, Gender Variant, Gender Non Conforming, Demiboy, Demigirl, Genderfluid, Onmigender, Non-binary, Nonmonosexual, and Pangender. Among others.” — Beautybeyondbones

But what is love?

God is love

We look for love in the wrong places which lead us into depths of inner unsettledness.

Sex and sexuality is sacred and should be used to glorify God. We are ignoring God’s teachings and ways and conforming more and more to the ways of the world. We can no longer afford to stay silent as the society dictates the way of life. Staying silent while we embrace practices that are ungodly only makes us accomplices to sin and propagates issues arising from sexual sin.

The enemy is at work and we are aiding him by not speaking and dealing with the issues in our societies, not condeming the iniquitous behaviors and acts that are done around us.

Sex and sexuality has become a topic that most communities are shying away from and because no one is addressing them, we are creating a space for people unaware of how to express their sexuality to fill the void for themselves.

Let us interrogate why we have people who feel the need to embrace the idea of having different sexual preferences in the society. Let us not shut the doors and ignore, let us embrace one another and love each other as Christ loved us, not judging but teaching others of God’s perfect love.

Let us not throw out the scriptures and discredit its wisdom, we have allowed the word of God to fade away into the background and that is why we have high level of evils sipping into our society and families.

Why do we have increased cases of disunity, disagreements, murders, disobedience, revelings, pornography addictions, gay and lesbianism, high divorce rates, pagan worship, worship of celebrities and politicians, adoration of our parents and pampering of our children, suicides and the like?


We no longer value God’s Word


God does not call us to judge, yes even the murderers, rapists and child abusers. That is not our cross to carry , however, we have been called by Him to be co-workers. Many of us talk to God about the problems but do not do anything about them.


James 2:14 What does it profit a man, my brethren if someone says they have faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?

James 2:17 Thus also faith itself, if it does not have works, is dead (NKJV)


We have sinned against our Lord, as individuals, as societies, as a nation and as a global community. Let us rise up and speak out because being silent because the topic of sex and sexuality does not affect us does not mean that it will not affect our children and children’s children. We must keep in mind that we can never control who influences our children, therefore we cannot afford to ignore what is happening in the world today.

God has called us to be the lights of the world.

We cannot afford to be conformed to the world. Do we not see that we are in the midst of a battle between good and evil? The darkness and the light? I love how A. W. Tozer put it…

Change starts with me.

Let us bring people closer to Christ, not for our own benefit, but that they may experience His perfect love which is beyond any man can give.
