Counterfeit Sex

Is sex a sin? Absolutely not, when kept in marriage of course. The problem arises when temptations for lust and desire are for those you aren't married to. Sex before or outside of marriage is a counterfeit, porn is a counterfeit, living together without being married is a counterfeit. Only in marriage can sex unite two as one, in the bond of unity created for and by God. A sexless marriage is also sin. Unity in marriage tears down walls, builds intimacy, and exposes one's soul to their spouse and keeps the bond growing richer and deeper throughout a lifetime. Don't mistake a physical connection alone as intimacy or as desireable. The real deal of ultimate union, intimacy, and love is marriage between a husband and wife. Anything else is a deception that will ultimately lead to destruction of something whether that be unity, respect, love, commitment, trust, or true intimacy. Eliminate the counterfeit and find authentic connection in body, soul, mind, and spirit in marriage.

The Power of Words

Words. The power of them is something many people underestimate, do you? Do you remember a time someone made you feel amazing with something they said to you or about you? Now, do you remember a time words hurt you so much you felt like you were hit in the gut? That same power, to build up or to tear down, rests in you each and every day with your own family, your spouse, your children. What are your words saying? Are they building or tearing down?
