Sex Is Burning Down America

A fire in a fireplace brings warmth and comfort. Sex inside of marriage brings warmth and comfort. However, when a fire escapes the fireplace, it begins burning the furniture, the walls and finally, the roof. The fire will burn down the entire home once it escapes the confines of the fireplace. When sex is outside of marriages, it burns down individuals, families, and finally, nations. We are on our way to being burned down.

If you don't believe this, think about Sodom and Gomorrah. They were burned to the ground, literally, because of sexual immorality. Most great nations are not destroyed from without, but from within. 

Sex is a powerful force. God created it and when God is in sex, it is good, very, very good. When God is taken out of sex, it becomes bad, very, very bad. Fornication runs rampant destroying the youth. Pornography runs rampant destroying men. Adultery runs rampant destroying families. Abortion is slaughtering the lives of millions of precious babies.

How do we save our children from this destruction? Even Christians are committing sexual immorality and suffering its devastating consequences. 

First of all, you must be vigilant in protecting your children. Mothers are to be keepers at home so they will not blaspheme the Word of God. What does this mean? When mothers leave their children with others, they are exposing their children to harm. No one watches over and protects their children like their own mother. God wants mothers guarding their children.

You must watch carefully what their little eyes see, what their little ears hear, who they spend time with, etc. I would never send my children to public school in this day and age, even Christian school is getting more and more questionable. Many Christian families are not that vigilant about what their children watch. Too many have free access to television and the computer and share this information with other children.

This is war, mothers, for the hearts and souls of your children. Don't let the enemy have them. Make sure you know what they are doing all the time. God gave mothers to children to protect them from evil and from harm. Sexual immorality is every bit as evil, in fact, it is much more evil than germs, viruses, colds, the flu, and even cancer.

Make sure God's Word is hidden deeply in their hearts. Talk about Jesus to them all the time. Read the Bible to them at a very young age. Sing to them songs about Jesus. Read them books about missionaries and autobiographies of great Christian people. {My son, Steven, said that reading books like this is what impacted him the most. I home schooled them through junior high and they would read wonderful Christian literature for two hours every day.}

Fight for your children. Remember, greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. Don't be afraid because God is always with you and He tells us not to be afraid, but always be vigilant.

Be sober, be vigilant; 
because your adversary the devil, 
as a roaring lion, walketh about, 
seeking whom he may devour.
I Peter 5:8
