WHAT IS SEXUALITY AND GODLY SEXUALITY?
Hosanna E.E. David
SEXUALITY according to Merriam Webster Dictionary refers to sexual habits and desires of a person. Sexuality is seen as the quality or state of being sexual.
It can also be defined as the expression of sexual receptivity or interest or the whole way one expresses himself or herself as a sexual being.
HUMAN SEXUALITY is defined as the capacity of humans to have erotic experiences and responses.
From the above definitions we can see clearly that the issue of sexuality involves all humans. It is a major aspect of humanity. This is why God does address this topic with all seriousness right from the very day man was created (Genesis 2:20-25).
GODLY SEXUALITY, in my own view, means the capacity of a person to express himself or herself as a sexual being in a God-fearing and virtuous way which is in accordance with the natural purpose and use of sex. Godly sexuality is all about humans, out of deep reverence and love for God, resolutely choose to express their natural sexual desires only within biblical and natural boundaries; seeing sex as a holy gift from God and therefore not defiling it neither allowing oneself to be defiled by it.
Just as God did create anything without guiding it by laws so also God did not create sex for man without surrounding the act with Holy Laws. We as humans cannot deny our sexuality but many have always deny something – the Laws of God that upholds sex as a holy act. This is because man, from the very beginning has been in the unfruitful business of abusing the good things that God has created for man’s own use and pleasure.
Today, debates on human sexuality has thrown majority of humanity into confusion. As a result of this confusion INIQUITY abound at an ever increasing measure. Shamefully, abominable practices like homosexuality, lesbianism, bestiality, rape, transgenderism, transsexuality, pedophilia, necrophilia and other stunning abominations are becoming more and more widespread and acceptable in our world’s practical system today.
If we must get things right we have to go back to God from Whom all created came. There is no better way to do so than stand on our feet and address this rot. This is my mission at this critical time that we are in. We shouldn’t forget the command of God about human sexuality:
“Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed UNDEFILED: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge” (Hebrews 13:4).
