The Battle with Sin

Tim Conway:

Over the last 4 years or so we have seen a number of young people, same age as you folks that are visiting with us tonight. A lot of people say, „God has been doing things among the young people 18 – 30 year olds across the country, it seems. It’s been no different here, in San Antonio. We have seen the Lord working and one of the things that has become apparent to me, that some of these new converts, some of these new Christians, they are all of a sudden coming into a measure of spiritual warfare, that I think when they were first saved, they never anticipated.And I’ve heard veteran Christians that they talked about when they came into the kingdom and they just thought that it was going to be, you know, eternal fillings of the Spirit and joy, and flowery beds of ease.

The Christian life is a battle. And the text, the springboard text that we’ve been dealing with, probably the last two months or so comes out of 1 Peter 2:11 and I wanna hit that text just as  we get started this evening, „Beloved I urge you as sojourners and exiles  to abstain from the passions of the flesh which wage war against your soul „.(reading from the ESV) .

There are passions of the flesh that wage war. That means there are passions that would seek to wage war and destroy your soul. We have dealt with pride, we have dealt with worldliness and this, tonight we are gonna start, probably three messages (this being the first) on sexual sin. I’ll tell you this. The very nature of this subject that I wanna start dealing with tonight; I don’t know the background of the visitors tonight. I know what you folks are accustomed to hearing, that are part of the church. I don’t have any intention tonight to try and awe you with provocative language. But I wanna just tell you this: I wanna be dead honest with you and to do that, I don’t know what kind of churches you go to, what kind of pastors you have, but, sexual sin is a real deal.

Sexual immorality, sexual temptation; it is huge in our day! And it’s not a subject we wanna stay quiet about. It wages war. In fact,  among young people, this one takes people down. These passions wage war against your soul and they mean to undo you. I know I’m personifying them, I’m making them out like an enemy that actually has arms and legs and thinks. But, that’s the way the Bible speaks about them.

The Battle in Your Mind to Abstain from Sexual Sin – Tim Conway

Randy Alcorn – The Purity Principle (Esssential Reading)

This is a very helpful article with the Biblical perspective on sexual purity from Randy Alcorn. You will find all his links at the bottom of this page.

Chapter 5 and 6 from the Purity Principle

Posted in: Excerpts from Randy’s Books, Sexual Purity Articles
By Randy Alcorn

The Purity Principle is this: Purity is always smart; impurity is always stupid.

Does God really argue for sexual purity on the basis that it’s the smart choice, while impurity is stupid? Judge for yourself:

Why be captivated, my son, by an adulteress? Why embrace the bosom of another man’s wife? For a man’s ways are in full view of the LORD, and he examines all his paths. The evil deeds of a wicked man ensnare him; the cords of his sin hold him fast. He will die for lack of discipline, led astray by his own great folly. (Proverbs 5:20-23)

Why avoid adultery? Because God will see it and He will bring judgment. But even before judgment day „the cords of his sin hold him fast.” The adulterer will be ensnared; he will die. He’s the primary victim of his foolishness. In contrast, the man who remains pure can „rejoice” and „be captivated” by his wife’s love, enjoying their sexual union (Proverbs 5:18-19).

In the next chapter God asks, „Can a man scoop fire into his lap without his clothes being burned? Can a man walk on hot coals without his feet being scorched? So is he who sleeps with another man’s wife; no one who touches her will go unpunished. (Proverbs 6:27-29)

Haunting words: no one who touches her will go unpunished.

Proverbs also depicts the man who is seduced into adultery as „an ox going to the slaughter,” and like a deer or bird being killed by a hunter (Proverbs 7:21-27).

A believer recovering from sexual addiction (which requires repentance from sexual sin) told me, „Addicts always think they can get away with it. You won’t change until you realize you can’t.”

I can never get away with sexual immorality. God wants me to remember that…for my sake.

Modesty 100 years ago

Romans 12:1; Ephesians 4:17-19; I Peter 3:1-5; 1 Peter 4:3 – For the time that is past suffices for doing what the Gentiles want to do, living in sensuality, passions, drunkenness, orgies, drinking parties, and lawless idolatry.

A beach on the New Jersey shore in 1908 (via 22 words):

Because it is very relevant to the topic in this post, I am adding this article by Kevin DeYoung titled:

Glory of God: The Price of Purity  Posted: 08 Jul 2011 here on his blog

1 Corinthians 6:12-20

…for you were bought with a price.  So glorify God in your body. (v. 20)

Christians are not dualists. Dualism teaches that physical stuff is bad and spiritual stuff is good, but as Christians we believe in the resurrection of the body and the creation of a good physical world. The body is good. Food is good. Even sex is good.

But sex must be in the right context–marriage between one man and one woman. Sexual sin is serious because our bodies are not our own. We belong to Christ, have been redeemed by Christ, and have Christ dwelling in us by the Holy Spirit. Paul’s logic is graphic and compelling. (1) Sex is an act of bodily oneness. (2) Our bodies are members of Christ. (3) Therefore, how can we think of joining Christ’s body with a prostitute? (vs. 16-17)

As Christians we are not opposed to sexual immorality because we are self-righteous prudes, but because we believe our bodies belong to Jesus. Would Jesus’ body commit adultery? Would his body look at pornography? Would his body dress suggestively to attract attention? Would his body live in promiscuity? Would his body enter a same-sex relationship? Jesus is not pleased when his body, the church, acts in ways his body, his flesh, would never act. Conversely, God gets great glory when we flee from sexual immorality.
