The Message: Safe Sex?

By Tim Lamb

The subject of "Safe Sex" has become a focus of parenting, schools, government policy, medical practice and insurance coverage, and it is a troubling issue for moral leaders who would rather focus on promoting abstinence. A sign in front of a church shows two wedding bands and suggests "Slip these on for Safe Sex!" With all the debate over the definition of marriage even those are not sure protection. Vows are only as safe as the people making them.

I heard a radio preacher the other day exclaim "Safe Sex? Sex was never meant to be dangerous!"

He's right! Somewhere in our liberal, anything goes, society we took a beautiful, God ordained act and made it dirty and dangerous. Not that it began with my generation; sexual immorality has been around almost as long as the act it's self. But the "Baby Boomers" took what was wrong and tried to make it good. (Isaiah 5:20 "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.") We were warned, and look at what has become of it. We teach our children in school how to protect themselves against what they shouldn't be doing because it can make them sick and may kill them...or worst yet, make them Pregnant?

We have made reproduction something to fear and to be ashamed of. One person said that "Women must have abortion as a back up to contraception failure." Murder as a backup to the consequences of immorality? Psalm 127:3 "Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward."

Planned Parenthood tells children to go to court if they do not want to tell their parents they are pregnant and want an abortion. John MacArthur quotes a Physicians Association of Planned Parenthood as saying :


There it is in a nutshell. Practice "Safe Sex" so as not to catch pregnancy. Even our president said: "I've got two daughters. 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby...."

I would like to know what values and morals he is teaching and where he gets them because last I looked the Bible is pro-abstinence, pro-marriage between one man and one woman, and definitely pro-life. Psalm 139:13 "For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother's womb."

The Bible reports that John the Baptist was filled with the Holy Spirit from the womb and while in the womb jumped for Joy to be in the presence of his Lord when Mary came near as she was pregnant with Jesus. Both Jesus and John stood a good chance of being aborted in today's world. The Bible says fornicators and the sexually immoral are not going to receive the gift of eternal life but we tell the kids "Just be safe". Don't we care about their eternal safety?!

I know; I can hear the bleeding hearts now, "They're going to do it anyway. What's wrong with experimenting and finding themselves sexually?" What's wrong? What's wrong is that kids are dying from it and babies are dying from it and we hand out condoms and morning after pills to children - children who should be obeying their parents - parents who should be telling them to abstain. No matter what you think you're helping with sexual permissiveness and "protection" there was less disease and unwanted pregnancy before we liberated ourselves and our children.

Safe Sex? We teach our children it's good to come out as homosexual without warning them of the extreme dangers of that lifestyle. Gay marriage does not solve the disease problem. Teach your children there are consequences for everything and every decision. Simple things like self control and purity are set aside and our children are taught instead that if there are any unwanted results of their actions they are victims. Children having children is hard on families and expensive on tax payers. No matter what you or your children have already done the crime is in letting the danger continue.

One man, one woman, together for life - it's safe and it's good! Even an unexpected child is a gift. Care for it like life!
