Of all the vices, sexual lust is the worst! Pastor Jack Hyles used to wisely say to young men with sexual problems: “You're not over-sexed, you're under-charactered!” I agree with that statement, but it is also true that people vary in sex drive. Some people do a have much stronger sex drive than others! This is true of men and women. That is why I am teaching the truth that masturbation is proper for people who need it. I do not think a married person should masturbate, and you shouldn't need to if your spouse has a godly attitude. 1st Corinthians 7:4, “The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.” This Bible verse simply means that you ought never deny a request for sex from your spouse. Many many and woman have been compelled to commit adultery because of a romantically distant partner. I like the bumper-sticker which reads: The secret to a happy marriage is NOBODY WEARS THE PANTS! Sex is the fire in a marriage.
Carnal knowledge (sex) is a beautiful thing made by God. It was the Lord Himself that designed our human bodies. Psalms 139:14, “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” Sex is a beautiful thing within the proper bounds of a legal marriage. It is tragic when the sacredness of marriage is violated. Americans society today has sunk to the lowest possible moral level, permitting homosexuals to get marriage and even adopt children. Thank God for the traditional marriage and family! I get frustrated when I listen to the Old Testament, when I hear about saints who had dozens of wives. Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines. A concubine didn't have the same rights as a wife. I learned the other day that Solomon's son followed in his father's sex-perverted behavior, having 60 wives and 18 concubines and 88 children! I get frustrated when I hear things like that, and I don't have even one wife, and am all alone.
I am often reminded of a Scripture that says the time will come when SEVEN WOMEN will grab a hold of one man, begging to be his wife. Isaiah 4:1, “And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.” Wow! I want to be that lucky guy! In 2019, men are running away from American women—because they are proud feminists, fat as cows, divorced, having two or more children, and only still in their 20's! And those women all have shopping lists for the type of man they want. Women today want a man to “complete” her, but God made Eve to complete Adam, a “help meet” (Genesis 2:18).
