‘CHEAP SEX’ IS DESTROYING MARRIAGE

A NEW MORALITY OF SEX?

The words of the pope and the Vatican commissions fall for the most part on deaf ears, as is obvious from polls and other indications that even faithful Catholics no longer conform to Church teachings on sex. Vatican efforts against “artificial” methods of birth control have been in vain, and the Church has suffered such a general loss of credibility that its preachments on sex are ignored if not scorned by the overwhelming majority of Catholics.

Christian fundamentalists see it, of course, as a clear indication of the devil’s power over fallen humanity. But their hellfire-and-brimstone warnings reach only a tiny portion.

The enormous increase in the material standard of living, allows people more freedom to experiment.

There is an increasing corruption of morals and unbridled exaltation of sex. In addition, Christians are confused because of the diversity of opinions contrary to the teaching of the Church.

The Church’s position is enunciated in the basic principle, drawn from natural law, that the sexual function has its true meaning and moral goodness only in marriage, so the document of the Church goes on to rule out premarital sex, homosexual acts and masturbation .

Premarital sex is ruled out by the Church even when the partners are deeply committed to each other and are impeded from marrying only by adverse circumstances.

On the other hand, sex has the potential to bring people to the deepest level of intimacy.

CHEAP SEXCHEAP SEX

In his recently released book “Cheap Sex: The Transformation of Men, Marriage and Monogamy,” Regnerus examines the dramatic changes in American sexual beliefs that have led to an inability among increasing numbers of young men and women to marry, have children and be faithful to one another.

Three technological developments — highly effective contraceptives, high-quality Internet pornography and on-line dating/meeting services — have made sex (or sexual release) as easy to get in the U.S. as  water from a tap. Together, they drive down the cost of real sex, and in turn slow the development of love, make fidelity more challenging and have even taken a toll on men’s marriage ability. No longer playing a supporting role in relationships, sex has emerged as a central priority in relationships.

Everything in this new world is instantaneous……..everything is available and at their finger tips! Cheap sex has become like eating fast food. it is a NOW generation. They younger generation has a hard time looking down the road –planning for the future.

There is an emergence of something called Confluent Love”, which is “not forever” love, but love that asks whether this relationship is satisfying for both parties. When one party answers “no,” the relationship does not continue. Confluent love is the new norm that is shaping our dating and marriage relationships. For good or ill, neither partner will be happy with the final result.

In generations past, women generally made men wait until marriage to have sex. To get a wife (and, therefore, sex), men had to be clean and presentable and have a good job. This, Regnerus reasons, gave men all the motivation they needed to become respectable members of society. Nowadays young men can skip the detour of getting education and career prospects to qualify for sex. Now with porn on demand and greater reproductive freedom, sex is a commodity available at any time.

MEN AND WOMEN DIFFERENCES

Men and women are not the same with regard to sex. In general, men have more desire for sex than women. Women desire sex too, but they also want it with love, attention, care and, if they are smart, permanence. Women are the gatekeepers of sex, and even if they don’t want to give it away cheaply, men now expect it and can go elsewhere if a woman does not put out. In other words, if women want male attention, they have to give sex away cheaply because other women do and men won’t hang around if they don’t. It’s a vicious circle which leads to untold numbers of young people who have failed relationship after failed relationship.

WOMEN DIFFICULTIES

Many women tend to be so hungry for love and touch that a little sex may give it to them, and so they may keep men on a chain. As compared to the past, many women today expect little in return for sex, in terms of time, attention, commitment or fidelity. Men, in turn, do not feel compelled to supply these goods as they once did.

Heterosexual women will have increasing difficulties finding a partner worth committing to. This leads women to settle, entering into doomed or otherwise unsatisfying marriages.

Women are getting married less because they are getting higher paying and higher educational jobs. But because women want to marry up, they only want to date the top 20% of men this presents a unique problem when all of the female population wants the same top 20% of men 

TRUE LOVECHEAP SEX TRUE LOVE

There are those who still believe in the sanctity of marriage or a solid committed relationship with one partner. They believe in romantic LOVE that is for the long haul. They are usually loyal to whoever they fall in LOVE with. They believe in the old school ways of thinking where people stayed in marriages for better or worst. Whoever they fall in LOVE with will always come home to them.

There are many people who are very much in LOVE and who prefer to be together without the signed contract of marriage. Others prefer the one on one kind of committed LOVE celebrated at the altar with God as the third important Partner. These are healthy relationships, where both people should have their own personal space to shine in their own beautiful light. It’s that kind of LOVE that you can see yourself having a life with, creating a family, growing old with and seeing your children become adults and being grandparents together. This is the kind of love that men are losing by not marrying. Whoever you fall in LOVE with will always come home to you.

SOCIAL CHANGECHEAP SEX

Marriage has become less of a priority for both genders simply because it is no longer made out to be the sole purpose of growing up in life… Education, travel, independence have all become valid and attainable choices for many. Both men and women no longer feel pressured to marry young.

These developments steer people away from thinking of sex as having anything to do with love, monogamy, or child-bearing — all traits that most Americans have long equated with marriage. Because sex is so readily available, people have lost the script that led them to marriage, family and permanence.

As women start to become more demanding of men, men turn away from women in pursuit of pleasure that costs little to nothing. We have failing rates of marriage and even greater rates of divorce.

As a consequence, men lose 50% of their property (real estate, cash, investments, etc) after divorce, plus add to this amount up to 18 years child support, including spousal support. So the costs can be staggering.

THE METH SCOURGE

THE METH SCOURGE
THE METH SCOURGE

The scourge of crystal meth, with its exploding labs and ruinous effect on teeth and skin, has been all but forgotten amid national concern over the opioid crisisMeth has returned with a vengeance. In Oregon, meth-related deaths vastly outnumber those from heroin.

Mexican drug cartels stepped in and have inundated the market with so much pure, low-cost meth that dealers have more of it than they know what to do with. Under pressure from traffickers to unload large quantities, dealers are even offering meth to customers on credit. 

Heroin is a depressant. It shuts you down and you’re not capable of doing a whole lot. In contrast, meth is a stimulant: addicts have lowered inhibitions and are awake 24/7, running around at night, so night burglaries abound. Eighty or 90 percent of heroin users are also using meth to temper the effects.

Like opioids, meth is highly addictive and difficult to quit. Meth has been overshadowed by opiates. Unfortunately, there are fewer tools to combat meth than to combat opioids: There is nothing like Naloxone, which can reverse opioid overdoses, or methadone, which can stem opioid cravings.

Meth or methamphetamine use is plausibly responsible for as many if not more drug-related crimes, episodes of violence, and trips to the emergency room than any other substance (discounting all of our daily opiate overdoses)

Meth first overloads and then eventually disables the dopamine system in the brain, which is not good. Meth exacerbates any pre-existing psychosis or induces psychosis altogether. Frequent users often report they hear voices, see “shadow figures,” experience severe paranoia, and endorse full-blown psychotic delusions. When you couple these sorts of psychotic symptoms with frequently hyper-aggressive and/or hyper-sexual behavior while intoxicated, you have a real public health problem. Addicts become semi-aware fragments of themselves, arousing and satisfying their darker impulses.

Meth kills by overloading blood vessels, eventually resulting in aneurysms, heart failure and strokes. As a result, long time older users are likeliest to die—in San Francisco, the average age of those who die of a meth overdose is 49.

The White House Council of Economic Advisers estimates the total social cost of the opioid crisis to the country in 2015 was as high as $504 billion, or 2.8% of GDP. Continue reading THE METH SCOURGE

HOMOSEXUAL ANGER

ANGER

The most significant type of anger influencing the development of homosexual attraction in childhood is anger with oneself. As a result of ongoing rejections by peers, many boys acquire an intense dislike for their bodies and view them as weak, unattractive and unmasculine. This can lead to highly risky and self destructive addictive and sadomasochistic behavior for an intense dislike of them. One can also become obsessed with the bodies of one’s peers who are well-built and muscular. The ultimate expression of self-hatred and aversion to one’s body is seen in those who undergo sex change surgery.

HOMOSEXUAL ANGER

Intense hatred is seen in homosexuals within the media or in the educational, political, ministerial and mental health fields when they attempt to force our culture to change its views on homosexuality. They direct their anger against the Judeo-Christian morality, the nuclear family and the basic differences between men and women.

A homosexual can grow to hate his body as small and weak. In spiritual therapy, his healing can progress by being thankful for his body that God gave him by viewing his soul as much more important as the body and by being thankful for his special male gifts.

HOMOSEXUAL ADDICTIVE DISORDER

The sexually compulsive, highly reckless and life-threatening behavior in a large percentage of homosexuals would indicate the presence of an addictive disorder. While the specific diagnostic category of sexual addiction has not been officially accepted, yet in the mental health field, clinical programs exist for such treatments along with journals of sexual addiction.

HOMOSEXUAL ANGER

In spite of the danger of acquiring AIDS, enormous numbers of males do not protect themselves sexually. One study identified 31% of respondents in sixteen cities had engaged in unprotected sex. One article, “Why Gay Men are having Risky Sex” described the situation as explained and claimed that HIV infections had quadrupled in San Francisco since 1987. In many individuals this behavior is frequently preceded by the use of alcohol and drugs. This situation existed for some because of numerous emotional conflicts.

NARCISSISM

HOMOSEXUAL ANGER

Narcissism or selfishness is another major factor influencing the attraction to the homosexual lifestyle. There is a tendency to not have to make a total commitment to one person. This behavior is almost childlike because it leads to minimal obligations in relationships and few limitations in the pursuit of pleasure. Continue reading HOMOSEXUAL ANGER

DELIVERANCE FROM ADDICTION ASSURED

FREEDOM

Freedom is the corner stone of all great nations. It is an essential human right. Self-discipline is the foundation of freedom.The complete opposite is the feeling good thinking: “If it feels good, do it.”

ADDICTION

Addiction robs us of self-discipline, freedom and our own dignity. Of course, this leads to slavery to alcohol, drugs, food, pornography, gambling, sex, violence and shopping. These addiction attacks take over our bodies, but also our minds, hearts, spirits and check books. Those who are paralyzed by addiction follow sheepishly wherever the flock leads. Addiction clouds our judgment and causes us to lose sight of our essential purpose in life.

Aldous Huxley said, “Addiction is an increasing desire for an act which gives less and less satisfaction.” Quite the opposite is a person who is free: he or she is quietly confident and peaceful with all manner of positive thoughts.

An addict needs a strategy to solve the problem. The Alcoholics Anonymous has 12 steps that have been successful, but there is a missing ingredient: EVIL INFLUENCE.

ADDICTION AND  DELIVERANCE

ADDICTION DELIVERANCE

One can be laden with all sorts of addiction. These include: alcohol, cigarettes, masturbation just to add a few. This addiction must be dealt with on a spiritual level. Casting out demons is the only way to get rid of these demons that drive the person to do these things in the first place. The demons will hook themselves to a person’s flesh and mind. Deliverance WILL be needed.

WHAT IS DELIVERANCE?

deliverance is

Deliverance is defined as “a rescue from bondage or danger.” Deliverance is often sought from evil spirits or the spirit of lust, jealousy, etc. We are told to “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.”                                                                                                                                                  1 Peter 5:8,9

All aspects of deliverance are available only through the person and work of Jesus Christ:” When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, ‘Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!’”                                                                              Luke 10:17

 DO YOU NEED DELIVERANCE?

To determine if you are in need of deliverance, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Are you continually argumentative or contrary–usually on the verge of anger?
  2.  Are you violating, neglecting or causing pain in a relationship?
  3.  Are you practicing sin and can’t seem to stop?
  4. Do you see a pattern of issues in your family, whether disease, poverty, anger, divorce, sexual perversion or other issues?
  5. You are sick all the time and the doctors find nothing wrong. You could be dealing with a spirit of infirmity?
  6. Are you having “spiritual” encounters, including recurring  dreams/nightmares that you leave you fearful?
  7. Do you sometimes sense that the problem isn’t you, but rather something in you?
  8. Are you attracted  to the occult. , e.g. Ouija Boards, Seance, Fortune Telling, Horoscopes, Hypnosis etc, or Witchcraft?
  9. Have you experienced traumatic events that have impacted your life negatively?
  10.  Do you keep hitting the same wall.

One minister of healing had a record of 70% recovery of drug addiction, compared to 5% by the public health system, simply by this form of healing ministry. We are dealing with desperate people who need help right now; they don’t want a sermon about the hereafter. What willpower cannot accomplish, Christ’s healing power can and does.

The Bible talks about the flesh, also known as the “Old Man”: the part of the person that is rebellious and wants to do its own will rather than the will of God and is open to be influenced by the Devil. “Be sober, be watchful: your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walk about, seeking whom he may devour.”                            1 Peter 5:8.

“For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world.”                                                                                                        1 John 2:16

Ask the Lord what caused this addiction. This will help you to solve the mystery of this problem. Addiction often has its origin

The work of demonic powers is often present in cases of addiction. Our struggle is with evil powers. Drugs and alcohol are a demonic doorway to the supernatural world. When you use it, you enter a dark world of destruction, depression, anxiety, confusion, and restlessness.

The demons will hook themselves to a person’s flesh and mind. Deliverance WILL be needed.

OXYCODONE KILLS

Overdoses involving prescription painkillers are at epidemic levels and now kill more Americans than heroin and cocaine combined.

The number of people killed by drug poisoning, driven by large increases of painkiller abuse, surpassed motor vehicle fatalities for the first time.

DRUG OVERDOSE KILLS

Oxycontin, formally known as Percodan, allows the time released capsules to be absorbed all at once!

DRUG OXYCODONE KILLSDRUG ADDICTION

Oxycodone or Oxycontin kills the pain. It also kill the joy, the hope, the body and the brain and finally the SOUL!  Again spiritual deliverance is really the only solution through the Blood of Christ.

DRUG ADDICTION

Cigarette and Drug Bust

Smokers already know that smoking adversely affects virtually every organic system of the human body and bodily function. The smoker opens the door to the spirit of self destruction and commits “slow-suicide”. The heart and blood are affected. The eyes and nasal passages are inflamed and burned. The respiratory system easily falls prey to emphysema and asthma. Tobacco, nicotine and smoking attack and break down immune systems so cancers can develop unrestricted. Common to smokers are lung cancer, throat cancer and lip cancer.

We are responsible to God for the care of our body.  We are held responsible by God, for the care and use of our physical body. states: “What? Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own. “                                                                            1 Corinthians 6:19

We open ourselves to our physical destruction: “If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple.”                1 Corinthians 3:17

ADDICTION DELIVERANCE

A person who has the smoking habit, in honesty, must label themselves an “addict”. Continue reading DELIVERANCE FROM ADDICTION ASSURED
