Sexuality is Only About Consent?

We've seen Miley Cyrus' transformation from a "good" little Hannah Montana girl to a worldly young woman with no morals or values. A recent comment of hers concerning sexuality shows how far from God's ways she has strayed, "I am literally open to every single thing that is consenting and doesn't involve an animal and everyone is of age. Everything that's legal, I'm down with...As long as you're not hurting anyone, your choices are your choices. I don't relate to being boy or girl, and I don't have to have my partner relate to boy or girl." {I didn't link to where I got this comment from since they all showed an indecent picture of her.}

These thoughts of her seem to be the values of today. As long as there is consent, you're free to have sex with whoever you want and whenever you want. There are no moral constraints for we are to do as we please. She states that as long as you're not hurting anyone, it is okay. Has she not researched the harm that sex outside of marriage results in; STDs, HIV, AIDS, infertility, to name a few? I would say all of these not only hurt the people who are having sex but all those who love these people. Sex outside of marriage is the one sin that God says we reap the consequences in our own bodies. {1 Corinthians 6:18} She is ignorant in her words. Our choices impact ourselves and others.

She is longing to fill her emptiness in godless and immoral ways.  One day, however, Miley will figure out that even though she thinks she is free to live as she wants, she still has that emptiness in her soul. She needs Jesus. All those living in sin and practicing sin aren't free at all. They're in bondage to their sin and there is no escape, except through the blood of Christ. They will keep searching for answers in this world, yet they will never find them.

We all long for something to fill our emptiness; as believers, we long for the garden. We long for the Garden of Eden where we could walk with God, where there is no shame, guilt or sin and we would be joyful all the day long. We will NEVER find our satisfaction in things, actions or others here on earth. It all leads to emptiness without God. We weren't made for this earth. We were made for godliness, purity and holiness in complete union with God until sin entered the world.

Please, don't find your morals and values from society but from God's unchanging Word. Stay sexually pure until marriage and consistently teach your children Truth. Don't deprive your husband of intimacy when you are married. Be careful what you watch, read and fill your minds with. Fill it with God's Word and goodness. Sex inside of God's boundaries is beautiful; outside of them, it becomes ugly and destructive.

Drink water from your own cistern, flowing water from your own well. Should your springs be scattered abroad, streams of water in the streets? Let them be for yourself alone, and not for strangers with you. Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice in the wife of your youth, a lovely deer, a graceful doe. Let her breasts fill you at all times with delight; be intoxicated always in her love.
Proverbs 5:15-19
