Sex in God’s Temple: 15 Easy Ways to Understand, Identify and Overcome Sexual Immorality and Emotional Traps in Your Life was written as a practical “how to” book to help you end sexual and emotional entanglement forever.
What is my motivation for writing this book, why would you want to listen to it and apply it to your life?
The motivation: The incidence of believers becoming trapped in destructive entanglements seems to have increased and continues to be a source of pain and heartache for singles and families alike. Sexual immorality knows no boundaries. Its insidious influence has spread into institutions and homes of well-intended people who seek to live moral, Christian lives.
The internet with all its goodies does not help matters at all. The internet has made the private consumption of illicit material possible through one’s home computer or mobile device (phone). Young and old alike can not only access pornography but also engage in virtual emotional relationships with complete strangers on the other side of the world. Even if physical contact never occurs, the damage to a marriage can be devastating when the online relationship becomes enticingly important to one of the spouses.
Children young and old, missionaries, pastors, or lay members are not immune to the invasion of pornographic content on devices that leaves images which usually linger to the point of getting entrapped. I have been called to advise on types of software that could help prevent these invaders from taking in more casualties.
The television and movies continue to expose viewers to ever more tantalizing images and content that can draw us further into compromising lifestyles.
We have engaged Christian authors that have proven scriptural, practical solutions to avoid the pitfalls of sexual immorality. There are also real life stories that we can learn from in charting our own course.
I have also realized from my own experiences after over 25 years of my Christian journey that rarely do we teach about sexual matters from our pulpit. Yet our homes, which are the bedrock of society, have suffered untold consequences as a result of the issue of sexual and emotional entrapment and entanglement either in marriages, outside marriages, in schools, in our offices or our marketplaces, and in the environment giving birth to Me Too movements, gender inequality struggles, sex for marks in our universities, sex for promotions in the workplace, sex for transfer, sex for privileges, sex for contracts, etc. These developments come as a shock to many believers who are ill-prepared to handle such enormous temptations they have to endure, which has led them to become victims of workplace pressures. There is a need for mentorship on this subject matter.
I also hope and pray that church leaders will equip their members with more of these types of topic that has become so prevalent in our day and age, especially with the advent of the digital world.
The book Sex in God’s Temple came from four month long articles via our blog on Otakada.org, which are now combined in one piece for your use.
Why you would want to listen to it: It is written to help anyone, especially Christians struggling secretly or publicly with any form of sexual immorality and emotional traps. None of us are immune from the temptations surrounding us. But all of us are able, with God’s help, to make positive changes in our lives that bring fulfillment far beyond the temporarily satisfaction that sexual immorality offers. You would want to listen to this because it provides practical true story scenarios of people who are going through exactly what you are going through and have been able to overcome and get out of the trap.
