Fleshly Lusts, Which War Against The Soul
By David J. Stewart
1st Peter 2:11, “Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul.”
God knew what He was talking about when He authored the Bible. God has given to us the holy Scriptures “given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works” (2nd Timothy 3:17-17). The Bible warns in 1st Peter 2:11 that fleshly lusts do war against the human soul. That's a powerful teaching in the Scriptures. The Bible calls lust “a war.” A war is not a trifle matter to be lightly taken. Modesty is a very serious matter to God.
How tragic it is then that so many women hardly wear any clothes these days, or wear sensual clothing, and mothers allow their little girls to run around in public in their underwear. The word “underwear” sounds offensive, so people put some colored underwear on their children instead and call it a bathing suit, thinking that's acceptable. It is wrong for any woman, be she young or old, to walk around in public in her underwear, bathing suit or whatever you choose to call it. It's immodesty! It's indecency! It's America today! And that goes for men and boys too!
When we as Christians speak of sexual matters, we need to be very selective in our words, because it is a delicate matter that ought to be approached carefully. Some parents are just plain idiots, allowing their girls to dress and behave promiscuously. A wise parent insists that their child sit properly in public. A parent should continually be observant of where there child is and what they are doing. It is shocking how some parents are so naive of what is going on around them, especially concerning their children. Nudity has become commonplace in American society. It is sinful. Public nakedness is wrong. As America continues its spiritual decline, a thug police state will rise up around us. We are living in unstable times. As America digresses and moves toward third world status, it will be evermore needful to dig-in and die-hard in these perilous (hard to endure) times foretold in 2nd Timothy 3:1-5.
You can't go hardly anywhere in public these days without seeing immodestly dressed women, hearing vulgarity and seeing indecent store displays. Most people aren't shocked by sin anymore, because they don't abide in the Scriptures. Paul said that God's Law made his sins exceedingly sinful. The television does the exact opposite, making sin less offensive and desensitizing the viewer. The daily news features whores with miniskirts up to their neck. That's all the viewer sees is a woman reporter's thighs and two men sitting on each side. Do you think that's a mere coincidence? No, it's deliberate, sinful and God hates it. Judgment day is coming!!!
It is no secret that television is as sexually-perverted as can be. It is no secret that American society is filled with dirty-minded people. No wonder homosexual perverts and pedophiles are becoming an epidemic in the United States. The problem has become so bad that public playgrounds in New York have passed laws prohibiting adults without children under 12-years-old (see law S-1) from being anywhere in a public playground. You can read online about numerous fines, summons to court and arrests that have already been made. Two women were ticketed for eating donuts near a playground. Seven men were fined for playing a game of chess near a playground. Land of the free? And now the latest New York police state antics is a new law banning large soft drinks. No kidding! God forbid you should get caught drinking a 20 ounce Big Gulp near a playground. You'll go to jail for sure!
There was a time in America when people would sit in a park just to enjoy watching the children play. That's not possible anymore, because of the evil influences of television, Hugh Hefner, Hollywood, MTV and all the whorish singers in raunchy music videos these days. God pity this wicked nation! We deserve God's judgment, and it's coming. We're AT WAR!!! There's a war on for your soul! Alex Jones' Infowars.com slogan is that “there's a war on for your mind.” We'll that's true, but there's moreover a war for YOUR SOUL!
American society is getting so bad. I was sitting at a dinner table one day and the guy at the next table had his hand down moving at his wife's private area. They were a young couple in their early twenties. I don't condemn them, for we are all sinners, but this is how bad our American culture has become. People are acting worse than animals in public. Today's youth are shameful and shameless, and they couldn't care less. What do you expect in a culture that bans the Bible from its schools? I hear the most vulgar and sicko music blasting from cars driving alongside me. The music these days has become so wicked and Godless. Where is all this immorality, lewdness and sexual-perversion taking our country? I'll tell you... a Police State! If a people won't be ruled by God, then they will be governed by tyrants.
America is quickly embracing the homosexual agenda. All across America, liberal newspapers are publishing articles showing their support of gay and lesbian rights. God-fearing Christians are being labeled as “homophobic” and are maliciously blamed for contributing to gay teen suicides. You never hear about Christians who commit suicide because of harassment by haters. Infamous tennis player and flaming homosexual, Billie Jean King (born 1943) has been in recent news headlines, on staff at The White House, demonizing God-fearing Christians as “homophobic.”
Gay supporters NEVER tell the truth that the people they call “homophobic” are actually God-fearing people. Do you fear God? If you fear God and the coming judgment in eternity of all mankind (Hebrews 9:27), then you should be concerned (Ecclesiastes 12:14). The Bible is God's inspired Word. The Bible contains God's Laws for humanity. The Bible in numerous places condemns homosexuality as a sin. Jude 1:7 teaches that God destroyed Sodom because they went after STRANGE FLESH. Homosexuality is definitely strange flesh. Romans 1:24-32 calls homosexuality “vile affections” and “against nature.”
On his December 17, 2012 nationally-syndicated radio show Thursday, Rush Limbaugh said that “gay militants” run The New York Times (during a segment on the newspaper's editorial response to President Obama‘s newfound support for same-sex marriage).
Rush Limbaugh: Left will “normalize pedophilia” like it did gay marriage
"There’s a movement to normalize pedophilia," Limbaugh said. "Don’t pooh-pooh it"
By Jillian Rayfield | January 9, 2013
Rush Limbaugh tied the push to legalize same-sex marriages to a “movement to normalize pedophilia,” arguing: “What has happened to gay marriage? It’s become normal.”
“There is a movement on to normalize pedophilia, and I guarantee you your reaction to that is probably much the same as your reaction when you first heard about gay marriage,” Limbaugh said on his show on Monday. “What has happened to gay marriage? It’s become normal — and in fact, with certain people in certain demographics it’s the most important issue in terms of who they vote for.”
He added: “So don’t pooh-pooh. There’s a movement to normalize pedophilia. Don’t pooh-pooh it. The people behind it are serious, and you know the left as well as I do. They glom onto something and they don’t let go.” ...

The American people are to blame for this mess in America. Fathers are responsible for not training their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Ephesians 6:4, “And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” That means getting rid of the TV and spending quality time with the family constructively. Mothers are to blame for not spanking their little girl brats when they dance like whores. Proverbs 29:15, “The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.”
We've got a bratty generation of children left to themselves in America, who are bringing their parents and this country to utter shame!!! If we had a godly government, we'd run the sex-perverts, whores, whoremongers, homos, smutty magazine publishers, Communists, Hollywood, Walt Disney, the liberal newsmedia, Freemasonry, the Mormons, abortionists, the booze cartel, Wall Street, the illegals and 95% of Congress OUT OF THIS NATION FOR GOOD!!!
Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
Psalms 145:9, “The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.”
America's Sex-Sicko Society!
