Skip to comments.Sexual behavior and the absence of common sense

We seem to be losing the ability to determine what is really best for our minds, bodies, and souls. Instead, we focus on the here and now. We seek pleasure at all cost, and we allow immoral behavior to creep into our lives. If this continues, there will only be one natural consequence.
Common sense is not the exclusive domain of any particular group of people, but in our day and age it seems to be about as prehistoric as the Tyrannosaurus Rex especially when it comes to sex.
What is common sense? Webster says it is "the ability to think and behave in a reasonable way and to make good decisions." But what is "good"? Ah! That is the question the pivotal problem that is so hard to answer in this era of moral relativism. Nonetheless, I will take a stab at it.
For any person who wants to live a life pleasing to God, there are some things that are so fundamental that they are hard to ignore. For example, what separates us from the animal kingdom is that, as human beings, we have a soul, a conscience, and the innate ability to instinctively know the difference between right and wrong. It also helps if the man or woman at least agrees that there is, as Alcoholics Anonymous defines it, a "higher power." When such people, who are attempting be good, stumble, they know they can try again.
Clearly, apart from faith itself, there are some actions that are healthy for the mind and body and others that are not. Sure, the cultural icons of the day would have us think that anything goes and nothing is off limits, but let's examine, for example, what one feminist has to say about birth control pills.

“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”
It all goes back to the story in the Bible where the Devil offers "whatever you want, as far as the eye can see" to Jesus. The purpose of the story was to teach us about the difference between 'want' and 'need'. Many listened, few heard. Less hear now.
I fight against the old man in me every damn day. I can’t wait for the day he’s finally killed off.
