What’s Sexaul Integrity?
When it comes to sex, most Christians have been taught the right actions but few have been taught to align their thoughts and desires with those actions. Even more, the primary lesson of God’s beautiful design for sexuality is almost never included.
This teaching begins during childhood. What was the sex talk like for you? What’s Sexual Integrity?
Were you inspired by the beauty of God, his lavish love of pleasure, his desire to create new life through us? Were you even taught that sex was God’s design and idea in the first place?
Or were you just told how babies are made and to avoid sex until marriage? Perhaps you didn’t even have a sex talk with your parents at all.
The point is that very few are given God’s vision for sex, let alone how to become men and women who think, desire, and act sexually according to God’s design.
Without vision the people perish (Proverbs 29:18).
SEXUAL INTEGRITY IS SEXED INTEGRITY
When was the last time you thought of your biological sex—your manhood or womanhood—as a gift?
When I was in college, in the throes of my habitual unwanted sexual behaviors, I remember hearing a pastor teach that integrity means acting like the same person wherever you are, whether at church on a Sunday morning, at work on Monday, or alone in front of your computer on a Saturday night. I get what he was saying, but today I think he missed the real essence of Christian integrity.
Integrity is not first and foremost about behaving like the same person, rather, it’s simply being one.
Sin dis-integrates humanity—it breaks us apart from ourselves, from each other, and from God—and so, results in death. Jesus came to re-integrate us—to restore our union with God, each other, and ourselves.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been writing about sexual integrity through the lens of human integrity itself. Meaning, what does it mean to be re-integrated?
