Having Sex - Is it Sinful?

Sex in itself it not sin. After all Insects, plants and animals all
have sex. Even micro-organisms reproduce sexually. So why
should sex by man be sin? Every organ in the human body has a
purpose. The sexual organ also has its purpose; Excretion and
Procreation, two vital functions necessary for the health,
wellbeing and propagation of the species. 
With the command “Go ye and multiply”, the importance of such
an organ cannot be over emphasized. However, man is not just
any creature. He is the crown of creation; Lord over everything
that exist here on earth.

That is why in order to eat he doesn’t just pounce on a cow for
instance and start tearing away with his canines. Instead he uses
tools all the way; from the point of killing the animal, through
cooking, right up to eating. He even uses tools to introduce food
into his mouth; what most animals would consider a sheer waste
of time. Again he doesn’t just graze on the fields; rather he uses
massive technology to convert grass through a very long and
tedious process to stuff like bread, cornflakes and spaghetti. And
he’s not done yet. He still has to process these further before
finally eating. What patience!

Now take a look at chicken kingdom. A male looks up and spots a
female. He looks around to make sure there is no stronger male,
then takes off in her direction. She makes a run for it but he finally
catches her. Wham bam and its over. He’s through. Any weaker
male would have to wait until the stronger one wanders off. Or
better still he would have to move to a new territory. But this
doesn’t guarantee that he has sole rights over the hens in his new
territory. Any really strong male can wander into any territory at
any time and zoom in on any hen, and the weaker males would
pretend not to notice.

Now we are not animals, No; we are human spirits, built
with the potential to develop into the likeness of the Image of
God; Spirits with wisdom, dignity, compassion, grace, diligence,
humility and skill, from a home much higher than this earth, a
home more proximate to God, a home that is eternal, a home
called Paradise.

We will eventually make it back home to eternal bliss, but only if
we keep on track. The track shown us by the many guides,
teachers and prophets of old, and also by the Son of God, Jesus
and the Son of Man, Emanuel, the Comforter; the Prince of
Peace. Otherwise we are headed in only one direction; eternal 

That is why we must not engage in behaviours that degrade our
status as human spirits; Behaviours that can only lead us to Hell.
As a help, and out of the grace of The Almighty we were given the
Ten Commandments. Two of these touch on sex.

1.    Thou shalt not commit Adultery.
You shall not disturb the Love, Peace and Harmony of any
couple united in Marriage. You are not allowed, for any selfish
reason, through any form of activity, to cause a separation
between such a couple. This precludes acts of seduction or sexual
intimidation of any member of such a pair. If you happen to fall
in love with any of such a couple, prayerfully look elsewhere. You
will surely find another. Marriages of such nature are blessed and
protected by The Almighty and MUST thus be respected. Couples
not yet married but deeply in love with each other and having the
desire to get married are also protected by God, and must also
be hallowed by all including parents.

2.    Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife.
You shall not lust after any woman, married or unmarried. You
may howerver have honourable feeings of love for a woman and
are permitted to woo her. Such feelings are honourable if your
desire is to have her as your wife and not just sex mate, and you
have first of all ascertained that she does not belong to another.
In such a case, and because you genuinely love her, you would
therefore not make unclean demands on her for sex but may
patiently court her and when her love is finally won, may then go
on to solicit for marriage. Untill then you are not permitted to
desire her sexually.

Thus as Human beings and Lords of the Earth; Spirits built in the
likeness of the image of God; having sex is not sinful so long as
two conditions are fulfiled.The first being that there must be love
between the couple concerned. The second, and of  equal
importance being that they are happily married to each other.This
is the Will of God for mankind and separates them from the
animals. Anything outside this drops them below the status of
human beings and places them on the same level as animals,
sometimes even beneath the animals and would thus be a
transgression of the Laws of The Almighty God. Such
transgressions cannot go without grave consequences.

Can there be a Heaven on Earth ?

Yes there can be a heaven on earth, just as there can also be a 

Hell on earth.Everything needed by the earth for its growth and 
development was put into it by God and human beings inhabiting 
it are created or born with the abilities necessary for harnessing 
its abundant resources.

In other words we have been given the power to rule over all that 

exists on earth by God. This is a great responsibility.
It is therefore in the hands of man to shape the conditions in 

which he lives on earth. He can shape these conditions into a 
“Heaven on Earth” or a “Hell on Earth”; it is for him to decide 
and this decision is reflected in his activities. Right now however, 
judging from the activities of the majority, man has chosen to 
create Hell. 

In the Lord’s Prayer, the “Our Father”, a vow is made to God, 

for “His Will to be done on earth as it is done in Heaven”, a 
declaration which is also made by members of some other major 
religions on Earth. If man had honoured this promise to keep the 
Will of God in his daily activities, the World would have been a 
much healthier place; a place where love abounds. All he had to 
do was to live in love, peace and harmony with the people with 
whom he interacts daily. It is not so difficult.

Yet he failed. He became a slave to sin, loving himself only and 

carrying out every request of the tempter. He thus spread Evil 
and eventually created an empire of Darknessa hell on earth.

But it is possible to have a Heaven on Earth; a world free of all 

the earthly vices; free of jealousy, envy, lust, hatred, avarice,
covetousness,  laziness, gossip, suspicion and so many other 
earthly evils.

Man can bring about this. He has the power, but he must use it 

rightly; he must work on himself. There is no other way. When 
in each one there is true love for others and no desire to harm 
them; not in his thoughts, words, or actions, then the vices 
would die naturally and evil would cease. Then the kind of life 
experienced in Heaven would have its semblance here on earth.

But if on the other there exist in each one such desires as can 

only cause harm to others, evil would always abound and rather 
than having a Heaven on earth, we would have a Hell on earth 

Man must bear one thing in mind: If his activity is indicative of 

a contributor to Hell on Earth, then he cannot be headed 
anywhere else after his death but to that region whose life he 
had copied while on Earth…HELL. If he cannot adapt to a life 
Willed by God, a life in harmony with that in Heaven; if he cannot 
adjust his being to a heaven on earth, then all that awaits him is 
Eternal Damnation and not Eternal bliss in Heaven. But he 
cannot cease to exist. He is Immortal and must therefore continue 
to exist somewhere.

Out of the Grace of the Almighty, You have been given the power 

to choose; the "freedom of choice". Heaven beckons on you and 
you are given all the help you need to stride back Home to it. But 
you must decide to stride on the path leading towards it. It is 
your choice.

Make Haste.
The time is shorter than you think.
