Right on cue the news stories validate exactly what many biblically minded Christians have been predicting for a while; namely, that when we begin to “redefine” sex, marriage, love, and gender, we had better get ready for a very bumpy ride. Exhibit one is a news story out of The Guardian in the UK. Mr. Dale Bolinger was just your average nurse; except for his fetish for wanting to eat his sexual partners. Yes, you read that right, and I would commission the tolerance crowd to begin their marches, protests, and lobbying to provide equal rights to people like Bolinger. Already people are condemning his actions and we just can’t have such intolerance. I mean, why should society stop him from loving whomever and however he wants to love?
Mr. Bolinger is being tried specifically for grooming a young lady he had interacted with online to meet up with him, have intercourse, and then he was to have her for the main course (after killing her with an axe he purchased just for the occasion). Isn’t that just the sweetest most romantic thing you’ve ever heard? We, as a culture, have been being trained in recent months and years to see homosexuality as cool, hip, sexy, and vogue and to view those in this lifestyle as the pinnacle of sophistication, and the epitome of normal. My question for those advocating for sexual equality for homosexuals is: this too? Where is the line for what sex is and isn’t? Is love and sexual expression a license to do anything? And most of all: why? Why “here but no further”? What is the basis for the arbitrary lines that the homosexual lobby wants to now enforce?
They have been striving to erase the line that is biblical, normal, and healthy sexual behavior and practice, and then when the Mr. Bolingers show up they want to make sure there is a line that keeps him out, but them in. However, the same arguments they have been making for the erasure of the biblical standard is the same argument that the Mr. Bolingers will make! I cannot wait to see what their answer will be.
Their problem is that they have absolutely no basis, other than sensual whim, as to what constitutes a normal, healthy and – what I believe to be the most important factor–biblical standard for sex. What we are seeing is the end of sex. Now, I know that God’s purpose for sex hasn’t ended. However, our society, for all its lust for freedom of sexual expression has inadvertently pushed sex itself off the cliff. Until we, as a generation, return, or rather repent of our wicked ways and blurred lines and selfish indulgence and inordinate affections (to sound rather King Jamesy) we won’t be seeing sex around for awhile.
Exhibit two, is another story out of the UK, in which some expert panel declares that adults having sex with children cannot be proven to be harmful to the children. As such they advise that if the individuals involved are 10 or older and consenting, then there should be nothing illegal about it, and there should be no legal penalties or societal ostracizing. But again, I ask, why stop at 10? What is so special about 10 versus 9, 8, 5, or 1? The homosexual lobby and tolerance crowd have cooked their own goose, because the same arguments they have been making will be made by the Mr. Bolingers of the world and pedaphiles of the world, and every other form of sexual deviancy we have yet to imagine. And sadly, they will discover that the car of “freedom of sexual expression” had its brake lines cut.
However, there is a way to save sex from such a sad demise, and that is to return to the Giver of the gift of sex and ask Him how He intended this gift to be used. If you buy a new iPad, use it as a doormat, cutting board, and a litter box thereby ruining it, and then attempt to return it to the store, the likelihood is you’ll be asked “what in the world were you using this for?” It will be at this point when you’ll have to admit that you used it wrongly. That will be a hard moment for you because in so doing you will have to also acknowledge that there was indeed a right way to use it, and you didn’t use it that way. Our culture has ruined sex, and the only way to get it back is to acknowledge we’ve been using it wrong and ask to be taught how to use it rightly. I suggest we start that walk back as soon as possible.
