PASSION PART II
I CORINTHIANS 6: 13 - 20
(PAGE 1672 COME ALIVE BIBLE)
JESUS CHRIST, according to Luke 2:52, increased in:
WISDOM = mentally STATUE = physically
IN FAVOR WITH GOD = spirituallyAND WITH MAN = socially.
The writer of Hebrews reminds us He "was in all points tempted
like as we are." Because of this "He being tempted...is able to
aid those who are tempted."
When you are tempted to misuse some gift of God, remember Christ
was also tempted in like manner and resisted. Believe it or not
a lot of other people have also.
Jesus was a total man. He is the only one who can change our
concept from one of sexy to one of sacred. This is needed
20% of our 15 year olds have had sexual relations. Before you
get the impression "everybody is doing it," remember that
indicates 80% haven't.
Of the teenagers who become pregnant, 30% are pregnant again
within a year.
45% of pregnant teens abort.
2 of 5 brides today are teenagers. 1 of 2 is pregnant. IF the
boy is a teenager, 80% of the brides are pregnant.
The divorce rate among those who marry as teens is three times a
great as other ages.
Persons tempted to violate God's Word on this strategic subject
should remember: "People who try to use eggs forbaseballs play
short games." The same is try of people who try to use sex for
what it can't do.
ERIC FROMM: "Current sexual freedoms in no way contribute to a
true sense of aliveness or richness of experience."
CARL JUNG: stated of his patients, "none have been really
healed who did not regain his religious outlook."
