ORAL AND ANAL SEX (2)
CURIOSITY! GOT THE BIGGEST INDECENCY IN MANY
By Pastor Christopher Ikebuwa
Just as much as it is not decent and hygienic to eat a very good meal in the toilet, due to health hazards (even if the toilet is sparkling clean), so also is it indecent and unhygienic for two persons to be involved in either anal or oral sex. Oral or anal sex is purely out of God’s order for human use for sexual satisfaction. God speaks to us to have things done “decently and in order”; but many, due to their curiosity to experimenting for more carnal pleasure, do otherwise; they gradually find themselves setting aside what God has decently blessed man to be naturally “contented” with.
Note, that due to disobedience, all the problems of this world emanated from the same man whom God had created to be in charge over every other created things. Man’s curiosity in wanting to please himself was his greatest undoing. Man became the problem to himself and to God at the instant he shunned God’s Word (instructions) and started listening to the devil (Genesis 3). The emission of lust and covetousness, are typical results of the fallen man. The moment we are
no more contented with what we have, we unconsciously slip into the danger zone of carnal abuses, thus creating and enthroning our own will which we have erroneously labelled, “permissive will of God”. Permissive will never at anytime become God’s perfect will. God didn’t create any will that is called permissive.
●Carnal abuses can be very sinful in nature.
●Sexual matters are very serious matters, and any abuse therefore will certainly grieve the Holy Spirit.
Oral sex may not be ruled out as sin. Let me buttress my point from scripture. Romans 1:24 has this to say; “Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lust of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves.”
1). The word dishonor, atimazō (at-im-ad’-zo) in Greek, connotes a shameful treatment. And carefully looking at the second and third part of this verse; “in the lust of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves”, hereby explains the shameful treatment (things which are not fitting) done during the acts of sex that is greatly born out of lust (Vs 28).
2). In bid to explain further, the state of man’s depravity as stated within the above scripture (1:24), King James defined it as reprobacy- Romans 1:28 “And even as they did not like to retain God in their
knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.” The NASB states, “…..God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper.”
3). whatever we do to dishonor our bodies is categorized as unrighteousness (Rom. 1:29). And we all know that unrighteousness is sin…
