The Satanic Lie of "Free Love" and its Curse to Those who Embrace it

So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
(Ephesians 5:28-32)

Modern western society hates obligations and loves its so-called "freedoms" and "rights". It thinks that people should do whatever they want, and is even arrogant enough to think itself entitled to remove, if not totally eradicate the bad consequences which follow sin. There are a myriad of examples which demonstrate this, not just those relating to sexuality, sex and marriage. This indicates the mentality of the west in relation to anything, not just relation to sex and marriage.

History of Sex, Love and Marriage in the West - a Revolution in the 19th century

Before the 19th century, and even during much of the time during the Enlightenment which was a wicked age, sex outside of marriage was viewed as unacceptable. Of course there were those who practiced fornication, but they had to elope to avoid shame from society. However, by the end of the mid 19th century, the so-called "free love" movement gained traction.

The "free love" movement had its roots in the feminist movement. To be fair, the feminist movement is not solely responsible for this movement and its destruction, although it certainly was largely responsible for it. The feminist, alongside with the new 'sex radical' movement spread their lies about marriage and sex. Their perverted views on marriage, sex, womanhood and manhood are that which dominate 21st century western society today.

These perverted, demonic, and psychopathic men and women behind the "free love" movement had an evil agenda, just like the LGBT activists today who seek to push "transgenderism" and sodomy onto children, even seeking to encourage children as young as eight, usually boys, to become drag queens

These "free lovers", as I will call them, as a derogatory term which they so deserve, campaigned for fornication and adultery. They sought to separate sex and marriage, and in doing so, arguing that there was a "need" on the grounds that sex within marriage restricted a woman's "bodily autonomy". 

This observation is itself very interesting. It is the focus on woman's "bodily autonomy" specifically. This is because woman, in her position as helpmeet is the one who by virtue of her position can break or build up the marriage:

And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
(Genesis 2:18-23)

How? Because man is not complete with her. This is not to say man must be married to be fully human in God's eyes, but rather, that she completes him. That this is the case is not a bad thing. It is a good thing as God made it that way, and all things that God makes is good. That is why Proverbs is filled with Bible verses warning men about the types of wives who are a curse, and for that matter, the children who are a curse to them. It does not talk about the type of husband who is a curse to a wife specifically, or to a child. 

This is because men are the ones who need support for a wife and child in the spiritual sense to be able to lead according to God's way, given the way the family is instituted by God as per Ephesians 5:22-6:4. It is never the reverse. Although he can definitely seek to lead his family despite his opposition, just as Elijah did in facing jezebel, he needs their support, that is, their reverence, obedience and submission to him to satisfy his God-given duty to lead his family. This explains why all family problems start with woman, and her children, in no matter which cultural context or era.

The "Free Love" Movement is an attempt to Undermine Marriage as "One Flesh"

Marriage must necessarily be one flesh (Genesis 2:24; Mark 10:8). It is this idea which these free lovers so hated. The whole purpose of their movement was to attack this doctrine. 

The sex radicals, who are almost all men, if not all men, were liberals who subscribed to the enlightenment philosophy of humanism, secularism and rationalism. They may seem to modern society as 'enlightened' men who loved women, but they were not. They had their own self-seeking agenda in seeking to engage in fornication, adultery and all kinds of sexual immorality. 

The most notorious of the sex radicals is Edward Carpenter, who is known as the first homosexual activist. He had a life-long relationship with George Merrill, his homosexual boyfriend. Carpenter, is arguably, the father of modern sex education in schools, by which he sought to teach that women were oppressed in marriage, because sex could only be within marriage,  in seeking to poison the minds of generations of children. This was a form of "oppression" because women would not have "freedom" to engage in fornication, and adultery, which is itself rebellion against the husband of the adulteress.  

The underlying rationale of this view was that woman had a "right" to rebel. The motive by these sex radicals was to encourage rebellion of women, as they sought to rebel against God, in particular, his order for the family. Owing to her position as helpmeet whereby she is the one who makes or breaks a marriage, the focus must necessarily be on women's autonomy, rather than men's. Men's bodily autonomy follows women's bodily autonomy, rather than that women's bodily autonomy follow men's bodily autonomy, as she is the one under him (no pun intended, if you understand it). The following article is a great article explaining this, which I highly recommend you read, and where the pun was inspired: 

By separating sex and marriage, marriage is no longer practiced as a place where sexual bond united husband and wife can be made, and became seen as only something people chose as 'optional'. Since sexual boundaries drawn by marriage were eradicate, sex became that which could be sought outside of marriage. That is the fundamental reason why marriage had been declining in rates, and seen as less important since the 19th century. It is no longer where a sexual intimate relationship needed to be sought, as it could be sought elsewhere.

While this may be disconcerting to those who honour God-given sexual boundaries of marriage, and its role, be encouraged in knowing that God is not mocked. God has allowed all manner of dyfunction in marriage and family to occur as a result of the west proudly rejecting God's commands to humankind in relation to sex, marriage and family. Galatians 6:7-9 makes it clear that God is not mocked, as sin reaps its evil, and righteousness reaps rewards:

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

If you have ever suffered as a result of another's sin, in relation to sex, marriage or family, know that such persons will reap punishment. You might not be able to see it, but it will happen, because sin will bite back the sinner, like a snake biting those he deceives into seeking him. As the Bible says to the evil "your sin will find you out" (Numbers 32:23).

The bad fruit of the "free love" movement, being single motherhood, abandonment of women by boyfriends, no-fault divorce, the need to divorced women to both work full-time and care for children, abortion, child abuse, and rebellious children who will only turn around to hate their parents who despised the God-given order of family, are all curses. God will indeed not be mocked. Rather, he (or she) who mocks God will be mocked by God himself or herself.


How Woman is the Tempter of Man, and is Woe to Man, and How Children Follow Woman in Undermining Man's Authority as Husband and Father

 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction (Proverbs 1:7).

The western world is totally intoxicated, in a bad way of course, with the idea of freedom, liberty and rights. It thinks everything is a matter of so-called "freedom", "liberty" and "rights". Understanding the evils of such ideas of key to understanding true proper Biblical teaching on marriage, sexuality, sex and gender. 

It thinks itself so wise, but really proves itself to be a fool, with all the social problems in the west, which these people who reject the wisdom of God, and love all kinds of worldly wisdom, are so concerned and angry about.

Why? Because the west has totally prostituted herself to vile liberalism on all matters regarding marriage, sexuality, sex and gender. She thinks that it is man (or woman), not God who determines how these things are to be thought about, and therefore practiced.

A Short History of the West

The west had not always been the way it currently is now. However, this is not to say that history is linear. History is, and always has been cyclic, where although it may not repeat itself exactly, it repeats itself enough to be able to draw parallels between times that are essentially the same, but different in form.

So, the west had in its pagan pre-Christian past been the way it is now - full of sexual immorality, rebellion, idolatry, and barbarism. It supports eugenics, abortion and euthanasia, manifestations of its barbarism, hidden under the guise of 'civility' and 'modernity'. Such evils are all of the spirit of rebellion against God, in rejection the way of Christianity, and therefore loving the ways of darkness.

Christianity fundamentally transformed the west during the Medieval Era from the 5th to 15th centuries. The protestant reformation occurred in the 16th century, following by the "enlightenment era" which originated the mid 16th century, and blossomed by the end of the century.

The Enlightenment Philosophy and its Destruction of the West

The Enlightenment has caused far more destruction that we think. The destruction of the Enlightenment are still felt very strongly in the west today. This manifests itself in literally every single way one can think of, whether it be high crime rates, inability of people to stay married, careerism in women, the hatred of the decent, hardworking husband and father, abortion, euthanasia, religious pluralism, child abuse, and multiculturalism. 

The philosophy underlying these evils is the same philosophy that laid the foundation for the so-called 'free love' movement of the 19th century. Given its militancy and radical changes brought about to the west in relation to marriage and sex, and how often Christians talk about sexuality, sex and marriage, it is surprising not many Christians know much about the free love movement. 

As such, this blog will be examining the free love movement, so that we can see the evil manifestations that result from disobeying God and brazenly rebelling against Him.  The other purpose is to encourage Christians in our walk with God in the midst of a hostile and evil world, which is bent on destroying all things that Christ stands for, by revealing just how foolish the world is, despite it being so convinced it is wiser than God, and even that God is evil, and they are righteous, in its utter blasphemy against God.

Family is the building block of society. This is evident from the teachings of the Bible on family, in its instructions of how to be wise and righteous:

For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth
(Hebrews 12:6)

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it
(Proverbs 22:6)

A foolish son is the calamity of his father: and the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping (Proverbs 19:13)

 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
 (Ephesians 5:22-33)

Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.

Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;
That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

(Ephesians 6:1-4)

These passages indicates the fundamental importance of family, as it is the institution that God has implemented for humankind to learn to walk in His ways, obey Him and serve Him.

As such, this is why satan seeks to attack the family, to cause destruction to millions of souls, by enabling him to totally grip people who were raise with no foundation in the ways of God. That is why. It is that simple.

Satan targets those who are susceptible to following him, more easily tempted by him. Note how he targets women and children. Note how Proverbs says that it is a foolish son or nagging wife who causes the father and husband to suffer. 

It is not the other way round where a father or husband first causes his child or wife to suffer. Why? Because it is the natural disposition of woman to be a curse to man: Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee (Genesis 3:16). 

It is by Eve's actions that sin first came into the world, rather than by Adam's. No doubt, Adam sinned, but he followed his wife into sin, whereas she is the one who lead him to sin: 

And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;
19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. 
(Genesis 3:17-19)

The saying that woman is called 'woman' is because she brings woe to man. It is true is almost all cases, and not the other way round. When a man bring 'woe' to his wife, it is because she herself has caused it by her very desire to control her husband. This includes the desire to have opinions which bind her husband and children, or to be the one who exercises primary discipline over children. 

This is because both woman and children, are easily deceived spiritually, owing to their natural disposition to rebel, and seek sympathy from others, to manipulate them into feeling sympathetic for them, and therefore, unrighteously dismissing their evil, and even justifying it.

Children are easily deceived because they are naive and they are often influenced by their mother more than their father. They follow their mothers, and therefore undermine the authority of a husband and father, by virtue of obeying their mothers who rebel their husbands, and fathers of those children. She effectively uses children to undermine a husband's authority to rightly discipline children and his wife to rebel against him.

Satan has been successful in doing so. When was the last time you saw a woman or child being punished for his or her evil, in the true sense? I bet you never saw such punishment. Because women and children in the west are treated as though all things they do, no matter how evil, are justified, indicating satan has used them to make men fell into sin with women and children, by pandering to their carnal sympathy for them. 

That is why women and children need to be seriously disciplined and punished for their evil. Their evil needs to be seen for what it is, and addressed accordingly with just punishment, and not seen as "vulnerable"  people who are "bullied" by men, and therefore deserving of sympathy for their sins.

Rebellious women and rebellious children need to be treated as a criminal is, that is, shunned by society and suppressed, and who voices need to be ignored. That is the only way society can have righteous God-given order, which will not have the suffer the evils it does now.

For those who thought the feminist experiment was successful, look at what has happen. As the Bible says, "be sure your sin will find you out" (Numbers 32:23).

The Myth of "Sexual Harassment" and its Lie

Modern western culture talks about 'sexual harassment', that is "unwanted sexual advances". There has been much sceptism to sexual harassment laws, and resistance to its definition of 'sexual harassment'. And rightly so.

Much debate has centred around what is an 'unwanted sexual advance' or unwanted sexual contact', understandably out of a concern of false allegations of sexual harassment which can totally destroy an accused' livelihood. Any decent and rational person, in the very least, would be concerned. Anyone who knows of the vagueness of 'sexual harassment', a concept defined at the total mercy of the accuser, usually a woman, would rightly be concerned.

What 'sexual harassment' is refers to 'unwanted' sexual advance or contact. It is as such, a human-made concept. From the Christian perspective, the Bible does not use the term 'harassment' in relation to sexual matters, or any matter. Neither does it talk about sex as 'wanted' or 'unwanted'.

The whole concept of 'sexual harassment' is based on half-truths and lies. It is true that there are lewd people out there, including women, who seek to be lewd. Lewd people ooze in lust at people, full of the desire to sexually possess people they are not married to, and almost always do not want to marry, but only to engage in a 'one-night stand' with. Such lewdness is sin.

However, since the sexual revolution of the 1960's, the concept of lewdness has been gone from the minds of the masses, except only in relation to the most explicit and sexually vulgar lyrics. Apart from that, people do not even know what is sexual morality, owing to the rejection of the Christian sexual ethic. Sexual boundaries which made it clear that sexual intercourse was only for between a husband and wife was almost totally obliterated in society.

As such, sexual boundaries are no longer clear. Anyone can just engage in sexual intercourse with anyone. Such would logically lead to total confusion, to say the least about who one can engage in intercourse with or not. This provided the groundwork for the concept of 'consent', which could now be justified, and thus made to be 'needed', since sex was no longer with a husband and wife who had agreed to, by their marriage vows, give their bodies to each other:

Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.
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.
Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.

(1 Corinthians 7:3-5).

Consent was not really needed, but made to be 'needed' because of the sexual revolution.

This happened as soon as marriage because secularised, where a civil marriage could be sought, instead of a Christian one, where a spouse can divorce just because of anger, hurt, upset or dissatisfaction. In Australia, the first civil celebrant was appointed by the government in 1973. The Family Law Act 1975 (Cth) which legalised no-fault divorce was passed in 1975, only two years after the appointment of the first civil celebrant. 

It is no coincidence that secular marriage and no-fault divorce were legalised around the same time, during the 1970's, the heyday of the 'sexual revolution'. The whole concept of civil celebrancy is full of the spirit of rebellion. To even marry without seeking God as to who to marry is itself a sin, as marriage is God's Creation, and He, not man, is the one who joins people:

Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder (Matthew 19:6).

What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder
(Mark 10:9).

As a result of marriage and sex being separated from each other, and each being perverted, the "need" for 'consent' was needed to protect sexual integrity of persons. The whole "need" for 'consent' is itself a manifestation of sexual immorality, and the perversion of marriage and sex, in particular, the rejection of proper God-given sexual boundaries.

So, it is because of all the perverse 'sexual freedom' in modern western society, which provided the justification for the concept of 'sexual harassment'. It is a concept which is at its heart, based on the idea that the rightness or wrongness is sexual intercourse between persons is determined by whether it is 'wanted' or 'unwanted'. This is totally against the Biblical sexual ethic, which is that the rightness of sexual intercourse is determined by whether it is within marriage, to given generously and lovingly by husband and wife to each other.

Thus, the whole concept of whether sex is wanted or unwanted is sinful in itself. The whole movement behind 'sexual harassment' is really a political agenda seeking to push for "bodily autonomy", in particular, "women's bodily autonomy".

The Concept of "Bodily Autonomy" has Absolutely NO Place in Marriage

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh (Genesis 2:24).

The modern world believes in 'bodily autonomy' as an unquestionable dogma. It screams out that abominable slogan, "my body, my choice", whether it be in relation to abortion, where the body inside the mother's body is not the mother's body, or fornication. 

Such a vile doctrine needs to be challenged. It is a demonic doctrine that leads to Hell.

'One flesh' comes from the Hebrew word 'basar'  which literally means human flesh. So, Genesis 2:24 is referring to the most intimate human relations of all kinds, sexual relations within marriage. It is the physical or conjugal union of a husband and wife which no one is to set apart:

For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;
And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.
What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

(Mark 10:7-9).

Sexual intercourse is the ultimate consummation of marriage.  A sexless "marriage" is not a marriage. It is as much as marriage as homosexual "marriage".

Marriage is that which necessarily requires sacrifice. Sacrifice is the foundation of marriage. Without full sacrifice on part of either the husband or wife, the marriage cannot stand. That is why both husband and wife must be humble and stop be self-serving, to be able to have a successful marriage in the eyes of God.

Unlike what many Christians think, neither husband or wife needs to seek 'consent' for marital sex, because the wife's body is the husband's, and the husband's body is the wife's:
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 (1 Corinthians 7:4). 

Two bodies become one. Each spouse owns the whole the flesh, and neither has her or his own body. 

Consent in 1 Corinthians 7 refers to consent to not be physically united in one flesh, that is, to not be engaging in sexual intercourse. The only time when a husband and wife should agree not to be making love is for prayer and fasting:  

Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency (1 Corinthians 7:5).

Thus, the concept of bodily autonomy itself, is rebellion against God. It is really a means to pervert marriage as one where husband and wife are independent of each other, and sex as one to be enjoyed outside of marriage. Proverbs refers to such fornication as "stolen water" (Proverbs 9:17) which the rebellious world loves so much, not even realising the destruction that it leads to.

Have you noticed how many in modern society love the idea of sex outside marriage, but hate the idea of sex within marriage? They enjoy the good fruits of sexual pleasure, but want to gain it by their own way. This is part of their rebellion against God, as stirred up by satan. The heart of this rebellion is the love of oneself, and the hatred of giving up oneself and submission of one's whole self to God, which is the diametric opposite of marriage, where one is to give up oneself, and submit to God by obeying His assigned roles of man and woman.

Why does satan seek to make people hate the doctrine of submission by the wife, but not sacrifice by the husband?  Because he is seeking to pervert the doctrine of submission itself, and stir up people to feel that others should make sacrifices for them, but that they do not need to make sacrifices themselves. He knows it is the utter perversion of God's order. He is ultimately seeking to pervert God's instituted way which is for the benefit of both men and women, where men lead and women submit, so that they may be sanctified by God.

The concept of 'bodily autonomy' is not only a selfish concept. It is a perverted concept which claims that one's body is one's own, when it really belongs to God (1 Corinthians 6:19-20), rejecting His absolute right to own your body which He created for His pleasure.

The idea of 'bodily autonomy' has absolutely no place in marriage. It is an abomination to God to insist on your 'bodily autonomy', especially in marriage.
