5 Reasons The Maturity Of Sex Is Becoming Extinct

Sex is a word that is rarely used in The Church of today. But in reality, The Church should be talking about sex more than anyone else on this planet. Why? Because the origination of sex was divinely created by our Creator for a specific and beautiful purpose. If we don’t share that purpose, we can’t expect our culture to know the truth.

If The Church won’t talk about sex, we can’t blame our generation for seeking answers from the world.


1. Sex outside of marriage is glamorized. 

2. Sex is sold and advertised on a daily basis. 

3. Sex is used for the purpose of entertainment.

4. Sex has become more about desire, and less about love.

5. The idea of waiting until marriage is mocked and ridiculed. 

FACT: The porn industry brings in over 14 billion dollars a year.

Sex is purposed to be an intimate experience between a man and a women becoming ONE in eyes of God. And while much of our culture sees sex as nothing but a social activity, I can only imagine the hurt God feels while looking down upon us as we socialize an experience that was meant for the confines of a husband and wife.

  • Genesis 2:24 – Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
  • Hebrew 13:4 – Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.
  • Ephesians 5:5 – For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

This post was written to make you think, to make you evaluate your heart, and to open up your eyes to the truth of what God says about sex. Don’t let the world take something that was intended for beauty, and turn it into trash.

  1. This is so true! the sad part is that even in highschool girls and boys alike are pressured into experimenting something that our bodies are hardly able to understand, and in a totally unbiased debate, i did impure things before i met Christ and i can honestly say it is the biggest regret of my life every time i think of how God, and even my future spouse will feel knowing this. Great post Jarrid! definitely sharing this with friends

  2. As a teenage female, I disagree with the way society portrays sexual behavior! They think it’s a joke and it has become the new “norm” for people all ages. The media wants sex to satisfied sinful pleasure and plus it teaches viewers to conform to peer pressure. I believe that sex should be saved for marriage. Why wouldn’t anyone want to share themselves with someone who they truly love and will spend the rest of their lives with? It’s a special bond between two people, a husband and wife. So I just want to thank you for sharing this! The world needs to know the difference between “good and bad sexual behavior” even if the church barely says anything about.

  3. I totally agree! I’ve grown up in a Christian family, in the Church, and gave my heart to Jesus when I was 9. I’ve always had such strong convictions about relationships, and yet as I’ve gotten older, I’ve faced ridiculous temptation. The crazy thing about that was that I didn’t know who to talk to – because we as the Church tend to be either too conservative or too liberal…. I do think it’s imperative for the Church as a whole to start being a lot more open and honest about sex, purity and relationships. That’s half the reason I recently wrote a blog post about why I choose to wait for sex until marriage and what a struggle that is sometimes.( http://bekksies.blogspot.com.au/2013/11/sex-waiting-open-letter.html). I’d rather say ‘too much’ than see people listening to and buying into the worlds lies about sex.

  4. Well said. Most people at a young age think it is fun, they do not realize how much of your soul is taken when you have sex for recreation. The toughest thing to have is discipline. Society is more about fun and do what you want as long as now one gets hurt means nothing when the hurt is not seen it is felt.

  5. I would argue to say that in my experience, sex is talked about way too much in the church and not in a proper or positive way.

    I am a Christian, and believe in sex being intended for marriage, and think it can be something beautiful. However, the way sex is talked about in society and church is both incorrect.

    Society talks about sex like it’s no big deal.
    Church talks about sex like it’s the biggest of all deals.

    The former is harmful, deceitful, and scary.
    The latter is abashing, also harmful, and just as scary.

    BUT, I appreciate your writing and your intentions, and agree that sex is becoming more and more meaningless. Just my two cents!

    1. I totally agree with you!! I definitely think the Church is either way too conservative, or way too liberal…. I wonder how we as the Church can begin to fix that? Something to ponder….
