The Perversion of Sex by the World

Sex was meant as God's gift to humanity. God commanded Adam and Eve to be fruitful and multiply (Genesis 9:7).  However, satan has perverted sex and sinful humanity has also denigrated it and twisted it, by yielding to satan's lies.

Sex is that which is sacred to God. It was God's gift for humanity to show love to each other, which can only be done within the confines of marriage. However, it has been used as a tool for self-seeking pleasure or earthly comfort. That is the way the world sees sex.

The world also loves to impose its mantra which purports that as long as there is mutual consent between two adults, there is nothing wrong with it. This is a perversion of the meaning of love, which is not about "consent" but self-sacrifice. The world makes sex to be a tool from which one gains what one wants, and chooses only what it likes about sex with others. 

As such, it disdains the teaching in 1 Corinthians 7:4: "The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife." Yet, the world loves to attack the Bible for being "sexist" and unfair against either sex, (depending on what one's sex is). 

The world worships "choice" in sexual relations. It loves sex only when it is outside of marriage, but hates it within marriage. It sees sex within marriage as an abominable. Jesus said that "for this cause [marriage] shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh" (Ephesians 5:31). 

Sex as an obligation within marriage is seen as degrading and one which turns a person into a 'sex object', which is seen as legitimate elsewhere, is hated by the world because it worships its own flesh.
