Sex is Not a "Sin"
Sex is not "sin.
" Humanity is not in "sin.
" If you replaced the world "sin" in a sentence with "ignorance" you would be closer to the benchmark of Truth.
People do the things we term as "sin" out of ignorance and a lack of education.
Sex is a life force energy that must be allowed to move forward but should be done in an atmosphere of love and caring for one's willing partner.
The news media has been filled for years with stories of the results of the sexual repression of Catholic clergy..
By 2009, U.
Catholic dioceses have paid more than 2.
6 billion US dollars in sexual abuse-related costs since 1950.
(Source: Letters: Catholic bishops warned in '50s of abusive priests by Rachel Zoll of Associated Press in USAToday, Daily News (New York) and The Age.
) Thousands of lives have been ruined as a result of the pedophilia and other deviant sexual practices of these men who took vows of celibacy with the thought in mind that sex is sin and the celibate life is a virtue..
Trying to repress sexual energy is like trying to prevent the breaking of an air-filled balloon when sticking a pin in it.
Sexual energy must move forward.
It cannot be repressed and held back.
When the sexual desire is denied as in religious men such as priests the balloon bursts in an uncontrolled and often harmful way.
Sex is not a "sin.
" There is no such thing as sin; only a lack of education and spiritual discernment.
When a soul understands on a spiritual level the correct use of sexual energy, in fact all energy, then and only then will the person change their manner of doing things so that it is for the highest and best of all concerned.
Humanity lacks education in these areas.
For so long the church has encouraged the repression of sexual energy.
Labeling it as "dirty" or "wrong" while avoiding the fact that the miracle of birth is accomplished by it.
Sex is a survival energy.
Trying to stop it, will make it fight even more.
The result finally of course will be energy manifesting in undesirable ways including disease.
Sex even prevents disease.
A man who has a satisfactory sex life twice a weak reduces his chances of having a heart attack by as much as 40 percent.
Women who experience orgasms regularly greatly reduce their risk of cervical cancer.
Orgasms cause the release of powerful neurotransmitters that give can alleviate depression and improve overall mood.
Education is what is needed, lack of education and understanding of energy are what create the problem, not 'sin'.
Sex is no more a sin than atomic energy.
Nuclear power can, indeed, be used to make bombs and blow up hundreds of thousands of people or it can be used to power whole cities with electricity and diagnose disease as with the use of nuclear medicine.
What needs to be taught, in regard to sex, is sexual responsibility not celibacy and abstinence.
Abstinence education has been an abysmal failure.
Despite her testimony to family virtue, Sarah Palin has mothered a daughter who has managed to bear a child out of wedlock from an on again off again fiancé who has now managed to impregnate yet another girlfriend out of wedlock.
How much better would it have been had these young people been taught the responsibilities of sexual conduct and the sacred nature of sexuality..
