Read Part 1 of Harrison’s article, “The Philosophy of Sex”, here.
Romans 1 says it well: we suppress the truth because of our desire for pleasure (v. 18). Often kids know what’s true or what they should do, but they (and we) easily lose grip on those convictions because culture tells us we should love pleasure the most. Look no further than Las Vegas and every spin-off movie that portrays that kind of life-style: pleasure is the holy grail. Romans 1:25 says that we tend to worship the created creature rather than the Creator. Sex becomes what we worship – something every boy draws in his school notebook and finds on the internet, and I can’t speak from the girls’ perspective, but I assume it’s on their minds too.
