Peter and Beau take a moment to sit down and do a live Facebook Podcast on the term; sexual immorality! Should these words be used today? And what is being defined as sexual immorality today?
How does the current culture define sexual authenticity? What is popular in sexual thought? Is the Biblical idea of monogamy between a male and female popular? Or is it seen as the patriarchal power that must be other thrown?
The culture today reminds me of when I was a teenager fitting into my heavy metal culture. To be cool, was to be different from the ideal, or what we thought was the ideal. For instance, people of good reputation and leadership wore their hair short and clean, we grew it out. Government leaders were Alpha males. We tried to look feminine and have more emotion. You get the picture. Could it be this is what we do with our sexual identity too?
But should we throw out the ideal? And can we really throw out a standard for sexuality that has been in human behavior for thousands of years?
Beau & Peter discuss on this Episode of the B.P. Podcast!
“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith…” (Hebrews 12:1)
Sister in Christ, you are not alone. If you have struggled with porn, sex outside of marriage, or any other sexual sin, you are not alone. The Church doesn’t talk about sex very well- we either avoid talking about it altogether, barely mention it saying, “It’s good in marriage… okay, bye!” Or, we talk about it in shaming ways. Men might be able to admit to a porn issue, but women?? Well, you can here. Here at Running Light Ministries we aim to speak vulnerably and scripturally about sex, lust and love.
I am a woman who loves God and wants to be sold out to following Jesus… and I have struggled with lusts of the flesh for a long time. Women struggle (and fall) to sexual sin too. I have. But, being encouraged that I am surrounded by other brothers and sisters who fight this fight too, I want to consistently get back up, learn to throw off this weight of sin, and run this race toward our beautiful Jesus, keeping my eyes on Him, for He is the author and finisher of my faith. And yours.
We’ve had a Women’s Group going in Tucson, AZ for years and it has ministered to many hearts, praise God! Now, we want to expand and give even more women the chance to connect to a group of other sisters in Christ who want to throw off these sins that ensnare us and help each other run with endurance! It is not easy. The flesh is strong, this body of death is stinky and sin is fun (Romans 7:24)! Or we wouldn’t do it. But it’s all lies. It is only pleasurable for a moment (Romans 11:25) and then regret, shame and death come. Jesus is better!
In our Women’s Purity Group we explore these concepts from a biblical perspective, studying the Word of God together, praying, being vulnerable and seeking to spur one another on toward the upward call of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:14)! Come to our online Zoom meeting ready to be honest and seek the beauty of Jesus together, conquering our sinful desires (and replacing them with holy, rad ones!) one moment of grace and mercy at a time. Can’t wait to meet you and run this race together!
To God be the glory,
