セックスについての質問 Questions about SEX

We are continuing with 1 Corinthians series at Tuesday Night Church.

Yesterday, we talked about an important topic.

Questions about SEX

You might be shocked that we do talk about SEX in church!

But the world talks about SEX all the time, sadly sharing the wrong messages about sex.

We believe that the church should speak up and talk about SEX.  God designed sex as a gift to the married couples! 

This is what the bible says about sexual sin.





 1 Corinthians 6:12-20 (TNIV)

“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything. [13] You say, “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, and God will destroy them both.” The body, however, is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. [14] By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also. [15] Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! [16] Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.” [17] But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit. [18] Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins people commit are outside their bodies, but those who sin sexually sin against their own bodies. [19] Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; [20] you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. 

パウロが当時、独身でいるようにと助言したのは当時多くのクリスチャンが殺されていたため。(街が多くの火事になったのは彼らのせいだと考えられてたからかもしれない) パウロは教会で多くの未亡人を見たくなかった。
Back then, Paul recommended people to stay single, largely because Christians were being murdered ( possibly because they were falsely blamed for a fire which burned a lot of the city)  Paul did not want the church to be full of young widows.

But if Paul was here today, I think he would say, “because the world has gone crazy and sex is everywhere, you should get married quick!”  

6:12 私には、何でもする自由があります。って書いてある。
It says in 6.12. “I have the right to do anything”

This would have been a common phrase in the church used to make an excuse for their sexual sin.
Saying things like,  ” It’s not about rules” to use it as an excuse to do whatever you want and be selfish.

“Meat for the stomach” was another common saying to say you can do what ever you want. ” If it feels good- do it” would be a modern day eqivilent.

But the Bible says this!

16. Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.” [17] But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.

私たちは3つの部分で構成されてる。 体、魂(心、考え)そして霊(神様が内側にいる場所)。これらは離れられない。
We are who we are by 3 parts- Body, soul (mind and heart) and spirit (where God lives in us).  These are inseparable. 

Your body is a part of your whole, it’s not separate from your soul.

So you can’t leave your soul and spirit aside and go to prostitute and have sex and pick them back up again. They are all intertwined!

あなたは動物ではない。あなたには価値がある。 私たちはお互いの魂、感情、純潔に価値をおく必要がある。
You are not an animal. You are valuable. We must value each others soul, emotions and her purity.

The Bible says this about marriage.

創世記2:24 離れて結ばれ、「二人が一体となる。」
Genesis 2.24. Leave and be joined. ” two become one flesh”

Sex is a gift for married people! When a husband and his wife enjoy sex in marriage, it makes their marriage stronger, it’s like SUPERGLUE.

God created sex as a mystery of two becoming one in a marriage

コミットメント(ずっと相手一筋でいる決意)は魂からくる。 バンドエイドのようなもの。
Commitment comes out of my soul. Commitment is like a band-aid.

Imagine a new bandaid. It represents you, who haven’t had sex yet. It’s pure.  It can stick well.

And then you have your first boyfriend /girlfriend. You sleep together because you like him/her. The world says sleeping together is normal if you really love each other and since they are so sweet and you think, “I’ve got nothing to lose!”

it’s like sticking a brand new band-aid  to your skin. (as it has a super glue effect).

The problem is that when you break up with that person, you need to rip off the band-aid. It hurts when you take it off. And the band-aid gets slightly dirty.

And then you like someone else,  have sex with them but this time it doesn’t stick as well as before. Then you break up again. But it’s easier to rip it off now.

And as you repeat that cycle, one day you will meet someone you want to marry. And you try to stick the band-aid on. But guess what? It doesn’t stick well at all anymore. You start to feel empty. After marrying that person, you start wondering, “What is wrong?” “I don’t feel intimate  anymore!”

Sex is a life uniting act, when young people have sex break up have sex break up, they wonder why they can’t stick anymore!

It’s like they don’t know how to bond as well with your spouse one day. You can’t commit anymore after marriage

People who break up and go out with other person and break up again are practicing for divorce!!

Other sins affect our outside, but sexual sin will damage our inside, our soul.

People who are in sexual sin are confused! When they read God’s word, they twist it. They start twisting the truth. They can’t make clear judgement!

So many young women cannot cut off their ex boyfriends who they have slept with. They feel like their ex “own” them. Even if those guys were dogs!

That is why Paul says this strongly.

[18] Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins people commit are outside their bodies, but those who sin sexually sin against their own bodies.

” Body”  here represents physical, soul, social body, church body. ( all inclusive)

Sexual sin hurts the body of Christ.

Some of you might be thinking like this as you were reading the previous posts.

What do you do if you already had sex in the past?

バージンがすくないのは知っている。 特に途中からクリスチャンになった人は神様の結婚とセックスのデザインを知らなかったから、とっくにバージンじゃないっていう人はたくさんいると思う。
I know that very few people are virgins. Especially those who became a Christian later, most of them didn’t know God’s design for marriage and sex so they have lost their virginity already.

Many guys would have looked at porn and magazines on a regular basis and thought it was normal.

Perhaps some of you are regretting that you have opened God’s GIFT for marriage.

But it’s okay, I have good news for you!!  

No matter how bad your past is, no matter how fallen you are, God will forgive you regardless of your past and give you a fresh start!

Even if your mistakes have resulted in pregnancy or if you had sex with many people in the past…

God is right there waiting to lift you up again!

(2 コリント 5:17)
(2 Corinthians 5.17)
Therefore there is now no more condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. The old has gone and the new has come.

Only Jesus has the power to restore purity to a person. Only Jesus can give you a new band-aid!

イエスを受け入れてクリスチャンになった時、あなたの今までの罪(間違った言動、考え)がすべて赦される。 イエス、自分の古いやり方を赦してくだ さい!あなたの道に従いたいです。といった瞬間にイエスがあなたの人生に入ってきてくれて、あなたの過去の過ちを全て赦してくれる。彼の目からみてピュア になれる。
When you receive Jesus and become a Christian, you are totally forgiven for every sin and wrong things you have ever done. When you say, ” Jesus forgive my old way, I want to do it your way”,  he comes into your life and forgives everything you have ever done wrong. You are clean in his eyes.

(1ヨハネ 1:9 )

(1 John 1:9)
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

He didn’t just come to forgive you, he came to clean everything that is wrong in you and purify you

ピュアってどういう意味? 汚れがないということ。 もともとの目的を変えるようなものは何も混ざってないってこと。
What does pure mean? Free from contamination. Free from mixture and anything that throws it off its original purpose.

(イザヤ 1:18) 「さあ、来たれ。論じ合おう。」と主は仰せられる。「たとい、あなたがたの罪が緋のように赤くても、雪のように白くなる。たとい、紅のように赤くても、羊の毛のようになる。
(Isaiah 1:18) Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

Jesus can make you pure again, as white as snow

And one day when you walk down that wedding run way you can look at your fiancée in the eyes and say I will be committed to your for the rest of our lives and mean with all of your heart and carry no guilt and shame.

イエスは私達の恥を全て取り去るために十字架にかかって死んでくれて私達を自由にしてくれた。 あなたの過去がどうであろうと関係ない! 違う未来を歩くことができる!
Jesus died on a cross to take away all our shame and set us free. It doesn’t matter what your past was, you can have a different future!

To those who have not received Jesus.

The best step for amazing marriage and sex is to receive Jesus.

信仰が100%でなくてもいい。 聖書を通読していなくてもいい。 (100%の信仰の人はいない!)
It doesn’t need to be 100%! (No one has 100% faith!) You don’t have to make a decision after reading the whole Bible.

イエスから赦しを受け取ろう。 イエスを受け入れるっていうことは、神様に過去にしてきたことに対して赦しを受け取って、自分の方法ではなくてこれから神様の方法に従うって決心すること。 とってもシンプル! 
All you need to do is to receive forgiveness from Jesus. Receiving Jesus means, you are telling God that you’re sorry and you want to follow His ways not your own. It’s that simple!

そして、教会にきて同じようにビジョンをもってピュアを守っている仲間たちと友達になろう^^  ビジョンをもってしっかりたっている若者がライフハウスにはいっぱいいます☆
And come to church and meet like-minded people who are fighting for purity and make friends! We have many great young people in Lifehouse who are holding on to their vision!!!

And to those who are Christian….

Make a commitment to stay pure.

Keep close to God and his words

Wait in expectation for God’s timing.

Waiting might mean that you will be the only one with out boyfriend/girlfriend in your circle.

For guys it will mean that you have to cut off porn sites and magazines even though your friends say that it’s normal.

But God’s best is really the BEST so you can be excited!!!

When you get married, you will realize the true value of what you were protecting.

God will give you the strength to wait!

 1コリント 10:13 あなたがたのあった試練はみな人の知らないようなものではありません。神は真実な方ですから、あなたがたを耐えることのできないような試練に会わせるよう なことはなさいません。むしろ、耐えることのできるように、試練とともに、脱出の道も備えてくださいます。
1 Corinthians 10:13 (New International Version)
No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.

It’s totally worth the wait because when you get married and give yourselves to each other for the first time it’s an amazing experience!

あなたは一人じゃない。 チャーチでは多くの人がビジョン握り締めて、ピュアを守ってる。 だからこそ、教会に根付くことが大事!
You are not alone. In church so many people are holding on to their vision and protecting their purity. So that is why you should be planted in church.

まだチャーチに行った事ない人、根付いていない人は一度教会にきてみてください!あなたの居場所・・・あります^^ 一人でくるのが心細い人は連絡してください☆
If you haven’t been to church before or not planted in church, please come and see our church! You will find your place here… 🙂 If you are worried coming by yourself please feel free to contact me!
