On Sexual Sins and the Kingdom

The problem with sexual sin is that it changes your desires for the kingdom. Sexual sins change your appetite. Instead of desiring the good, true, and beautiful, it entangles you in a web of idolatry. Our real need as members of Christ’s body is a restoration of a proper view of the body. Sexuality is a gift given to us in trust because our bodies are given to us in trust. Our bodies are temples of the Spirit and they are the most sacred gift God has given us. Unlike the Gnostics, our bodies are not going to be disposed of in the afterlife. Our bodies are not just shells housing our souls, no, our bodies are the instruments of heaven.
