THE GLORIFICATION OF SLUTS
Lasciviousness-- inclined to lustfulness; wanton; lewd, arousing sexual desire: indicating sexual interest or expressive of lust or lewdness
Galations 5:19-21 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
There was a day would Anna Nicole Smith would have been written off as the harlot that she was. Instead, details of her whoredom elicit around-the-clock coverage of her sex-capades all over cable news. Watching Greta Van Susteren glory in the details of a decadent life gives me the willies. We have become a nation of window-peepers
What father in his right mind would want his daughter to turn out like Anna Nicole? And have you noticed, in all of the voyeurism, her dad has never been mentioned?
It may seem cruel to speak so harshly about the death of an icon, but the truth is, Anna Nicole and her sisters-in-sex have led an entire generation of young girls away from the value of inner beauty to the exploitation of the flesh.
We get the heroes we deserve. Anna Nicole was a slut, and thanks to her, sluttiness is now cool. The sluttier the better? �Hey teenage girls? Want to make a name for yourself? Show as much of your body as you can, sleep with as many guys as you can find, drink, drug, and get on your knees before the president. America loves sluts. Women are free to express themselves. No more religious restrictions. Girls gone wild.�
So, the fruits of women�s liberation and the sexual revolution lie naked for all of us to see. Women are truly equal with men. Locker-room talk is now on TV.
When I was growing up in the 60�s, promiscuity was something that only the boys engaged in. The locker room buzzed with the news of the latest guy who had �done it� and who he had �done it� with. Most of us had never �done it� and we couldn�t wait to hear the name of the girl he had �done it� with to see if maybe we could get her to �do it� with us. Why? Because most girls wouldn�t �do it.� Parents trained their daughters to say �no.� Old-fashioned upbringing, I guess.
But soon, along came the Pill, Playboy, the burning of bras, and divorce. I remember in my graduating class of 1971, my friend Eric was the only guy I knew whose parents were divorced. Parents stayed together �for the kids.� Today, 50% of divorces are in the church.
The 60�s ushered-in an America with a new gospel, and a new trinity. The god of Me, Myself, and I -- with a new doctrine -- began to overwhelm the values of our fathers. �If it feels good, do it. Tune in, turn on, and drop out. Grab all the gusto you can. Hey, hey, ho ho, sexual morals have to go!� echoed the hymns of the new America.
We must never forget that you reap what you sow.
Last Sunday, as I do most Sunday�s, I was speaking in a church. At the beginning of the service the pastor asked for prayer requests. As I stood there mutely listening to the broken-hearted appeal for prayer, I was struck by how much of America�s heartache is self-inflicted. It is popular to blame the Devil for our ills, but sadly most of what we suffer from is nothing more than the consequences of sin. Although all sin is personal, the collateral damage is devastating.
�Pray for my daughter who is going through a painful divorce.�
�Please pray for my grand-daughter. She hasn�t seen her dad in 3 years.�
�Pastor, please pray for my 14 year-old niece. We just found out she is pregnant.�
�Pray for my neighbor. She is trying to raise three teenage boys on her own.�
On and on, sin-sick hearts cried out.
Yep, American women now have rights. But who is better off?
We have reached the place in America where we are actually planning on vaccinating our young daughters against HPV, a sexually-transmitted disease directly related to promiscuity. HPV leads to cancer. Cancer leads to death. Read this startling statement from Wikipedia,
�The fact that prostitutes have much higher rates of cervical cancer than nuns was a key early observation leading researchers to speculate about a causal link between sexually transmitted HPVs and cervical cancer (zur Hausen 1994). It remains clear that people with greater numbers of sexual partners are at increased risk of developing genital HPV-related diseases. Co-infection with other sexually transmitted pathogens, such as HIV, may also increase the risk of developing HPV-related diseases.�
It is not unusual to be watching TV in the privacy of one�s home and view commercials touting medicines for genital warts, herpes, and other sex-related diseases. My buddies worried about �the clap�, the only STD there was in my day. Meanwhile, it is a fight to have abstinence-only taught in our schools. Have Americans lost their minds?
At what point did we decide it was ok to stop protecting our daughters?
Today a fifth man surfaced as the possible father to Anna Nicole�s baby. And still, the anti-god, morally-vacuous press continues to shove this story down our throats. What are our daughters supposed to think? My 70�s classmates would have called her a whore. Today her death is mourned. She was so pretty. She seemed to have it all, money, fame, big boobs, and attention. But the wages of sin is still death. What a price to pay for fame. Is anyone pointing that out to our children?
Paris Hilton�s sex video made her famous. Nicole Richie has ridden shotgun on Hilton�s train wreck of a life. Britney Spears, Kelly Osbourne, and even middle-aged Madonna are held up as icons to adoring teenagers everywhere.
And can we ever forget what Monica Lewinsky is famous for? She got her own show, and perfume, and line of clothing. It looks to our kids like sin pays.
Where will the madness end? When will daddies once again begin to defend their daughters? When will decent God-fearing people once again demand that traditional Christian values be taught to America�s children?
My wife and I have two lovely daughters. I guess it is the blessing of the Lord, but we did play a hand in the way they turned out. From a young age we taught them to value their integrity, to guard their purity, to demand respect from a young boy, and cherish inner worth above belly-button beauty. At least if they give it away, they know it is wrong.
They used to blush when I asked to meet any boy before they went on a date with him. �Listen,� I would tell them. �I wouldn�t let some teenage boy borrow my car without asking permission, and you are far more valuable that my car.�
They valued themselves because my wife and I valued them and we taught them that they had great value in the eyes of God. What we fail to esteem, we lose.
The gospel of sex, drugs, and rock and roll are preached openly in the Synagogues of Satan masquerading as educational institutions. Colleges are no longer institutions of higher learning but institutions of lower living where our best and brightest are encouraged to practice their sin, with the full blessing of mom and dad and supported by Christian�s tax-dollars. Let�s face it, for the most part, the church has given up.
So, Anna Nicole and �Girls Gone Wild� are the standard of the day, because FOX NEWS says so. Tragically, I think they are right. Modesty is out, sluttiness is in.
Where are the Dads? Where are those who will defend the heart and soul of young girls? We are raising a generation of prosti-tots.
Yep, American women are now equal with men. They got what they wanted, life without restraint. My question is, are we really better off?
tired of the sluts.
you think like a Christian or a humanist? Did the Founders really
separate Church and State? Is Judicial tyranny ruining America? Check
