Welcome my Friends to the 'end' of the Third Quarter, 2019.
As I am currently in the fiftieth state of the United States - Hawaii, with some time to review my notes - I ran across my notes on 'Wisdom from Mrs. Quarles on the 'topic' of 'chastity in marriage'. While enjoying the 'sea breezes', etc., let me post some posts for you. Now, get ready to 'blush', and then, get ready to do some 'soul-searching' leading you to a more enjoyable, guilt-free and 'satisfying' life, moving forward.
[See also in this 'room's archives' during our May, June, July and August, 2019, posts on 'Sex'.]
Please remember that it is by and through 'biblical faith', which states that we believe in being chaste, but what does that mean?
What is the law of chastity and how does one stay (or become) sexually pure? Let's learn about the law of chastity, what it means to be morally clean, how to repent from sexual sins, and sexuality within marriage.
First a 'definition' to start. Chastity = Moral Cleanliness; being chaste means to be morally clean in:
Satan tempts us to rationalize that when two people 'love' each other it is acceptable to engage in sexual activity before marriage. [God says this is 'fornication'. We 'pretty it up', calling it 'pre-marital sex'. And we fail to remember that 'love' does not harm, does not assist another to sin. [See Genesis 3]
This 'rationalization' is not true but violates God's law to be clean and pure:
"Physical intimacy between husband and wife is beautiful and sacred. It is ordained of God for the creation of children and for the expression of 'love' within marriage". [What is 'love'? See 1 Corinthians Chapter 13] The Apostle Paul spoke on this subject, at 1 Corinthians 7:5; 'Do not deprive each other except perhaps by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.'audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Keeping the law of chastity is most appropriate and should be one of the most important guidelines for 'dating' and continue to be important during the dating and courtship process. Marriage is a 'very serious' matter. By remaining 'sexually pure', the 'focus' is not on 'certain feelings', but - 'long-time character'. Feelings come and go; but, 'true character' 'grows more and more' 'stable' and consistent'.
Do not get blind-sided!!
Chastity = Complete Fidelity During Marriage
A husband and wife should be completely faithful to each other. They should not think, say, or do anything inappropriate with another person. Flirting with another man/woman, in any way, is not harmless but violates the law of chastity. Jesus Christ taught:
"Whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart," ( Matthew 5:28 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html).
Faithfulness in marriage is necessary for developing and maintaining trust and respect.
Continued Blessings in the name of Our Precious Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen. Amen.
