Food For Thought Before & After You Say "I DO"

This world in which we live in is saturated with sex! Sex defined in the North America Encarta Dictionary: "is a natural physical act that is carried out for reproduction or pleasure between a man and a woman."

The Sacramento area news has been beleaguered by the recent news of former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger having an affair with a member of his household staff. A child was born out of this relationship. The relationship was kept quiet until recently. But now his wife Maria Shriver their four children, the child from this affair, his mother, relatives and many others are all suffering from this! This will continue to cause much anxiety! A situation like this is difficult whether the parties are famous politicians, actors or private citizens! This is one of the many reason why one should "think before sex outside of marriage!"

Christians as well as unbelievers actively have sex it is a healthy normal natural desire! God our Creator and Maker, created us from the beginning of time as man and woman! He has placed His blessings on the union of marriage. Sex within the confines of marriage between a man and woman is meant for procreation as well as pleasure according to the Word of God!

God has created us with a free will! If this were not the case we would just be mere robots! He gives us the ability to choose. From the beginning of time men & women have continuously chosen to simply not listen! They have elected to just do their own thing! However, there are precipitating consequences when we do not listen to what our Creator has said...

Many have misconstrued what love and marriage are really all about! God is Love and He created marriage! Marriage is about commitment & loyalty! Many have begun to deviate away from His intended purpose... In order to understand what is happening now, we need to better understand how it all got started! A brief history journey if you please!
