Sexual History

You might be surprised what this study of 5000 years and 86 major cultures proves about sexual conduct in successful, productive cultures. #BibleLoveNotes #Bible #Devotions

Our culture claims it’s enlightened, intelligent, and civilized to accept homosexuality, bisexuality, transgenderism, and premarital sex.

History doesn’t agree.

Oxford-educated anthropologist J.D. Unwin studied 5000 years of sexual customs for 86 prominent cultures. 

He found, without exception, that “heterosexual monogamy was the optimal arrangement for planning, building, protecting, and nurturing the family.” When a nation’s sexual morals declined, its productivity and success as a nation also declined. (source)

God explained this truth long ago in the book of Romans:
“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness…their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another…Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.” Romans 1:18-32

God's design is healthy and blessed. When we approve of immorality, we encourage people to damage their hearts, and we promote the decline of families, communities, and nations. 

Genuine love promotes God's healthy commands.
