Galatians 5 One

Stand fast in the liberty by which Christ has made us free,
and be not entangled again in a yoke of bondage. Galatians 5:1


Each of the three websites listed on the Home page has some interesting things to say. Things that hopefully will challenge your thinking and affect both your theology and your experience. Here are quotes from each site.

Christians and Solo Sex

If you are going to masturbate you need to do so guilt free. To do this you need to do it “in faith,” believing it is what God intends for you to do. To do that you need to know the truth from the Word of God. -- Homepage

Now if a man has a seminal emission, he shall bathe all his body in water and be unclean until evening. As for any garment or any leather on which there is seminal emission, it shall be washed with water and be unclean until evening. If a man lies with a woman so that there is a seminal emission, they shall both bathe in water and be unclean until evening. Leviticus 15:16-18 NASB

It is especially telling that after he masturbated all a man needed was to take a bath. If this act of private pleasure was sinful he would have had to make a sacrifice. No such thing was required because it was merely a normal pleasurable biological function. It is clear from this verse that a solitary moment of sexual ecstasy was no more a sin than regular sex with his wife. -- Scriptures, Emission of Semen

Christians, Nudity and Erotica

Yes, there are commands that we are to be modest, but there are also many instances of nakedness in Scripture, and not just in Genesis 1 and 2. Would the Holy Spirit ever cause a man to go naked in public, or even in a public worship setting? Would He cause a person to minister to God, or to people nude, or even near nude?

So he went there to Naioth in Ramah. Then the Spirit of God was upon him also, and he went on and prophesied until he came to Naioth in Ramah. And he also stripped off his clothes and prophesied before Samuel in like manner, and lay down naked all that day and all that night. Therefore they say, “Is Saul also among the prophets?” 1 Samuel 19: 23 – 24:

Time after time when the prophets in the Old Testament came under the influence of the Holy Spirit, they took off all their clothes, stood or fell down naked, and prophesied and praised God. For some reason we read this, and miss what it is saying. -- Homepage

Christians Enjoying Nudity and Erotica

The pornographers depict nudity and sex as sordid and stimulating. The religious regard all depictions of nudity and sexuality as sordid and sinful. Both the pornographers and the religious see depictions of nudity and sexuality in ways that do not glorify God or bring help to humanity. It is a two sided coin and each is a flip side of the other.

God made nudity and sexuality as things of beauty that bless and minister life and comfort and pleasure. Pleasure is God’s idea. The pleasure of seeing a beautiful nude is God’s idea. The pleasure of sex and sexuality is God’s idea. Enjoying them is part of God’s plan and the fulfillment of His purpose. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. The pure in heart do not see sin, or evil in the handiwork of God which is the nude human being; the pure in heart see God in the naked body.

To the pure all things are pure, including the naked body of a woman or a man. -- Pornographic Mindset
