There are neither specific scriptures on drinking too much coffee, watching too much or wrong TV programs, nor on smoking or doing drugs for that matter.
Although these things are NOT good for us. It is also a matter of walking pure and in holiness unto the Lord. 1 Peter 1:15-16…but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in ALL your conduct, because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.” However in this message we are going to be discussing the below topic on the reason and facts about the scriptural condemnation of oral sex in Christian marriage.

DO NOT USE AN EXCUSE FOR UNHOLY LIVING
If you are born-again and filled with the Holy Spirit, He will guide you into ALL truth. He will reveal what you should throw out of the house, or what to burn, what to do and not to do. Walk in the Spirit, not as they that are of this world and you will not lust after the flesh.
1 Thessalonians 5:22, 23… Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” If we start judging after our own understanding, saying this is alright and that isn’t, we most likely are deceiving ourselves. Judge according to God’s word, pay attention to His voice and the prompting of the Holy Spirit.
Let us just reason; our body parts have each a specific purpose; you’re not walking on your hands; you’re not sticking your food in your nose, but lower; you’re using your nails to scratch, not your tongue; your anus is to defecate, not for what homosexuals do; your mouth is to eat with and is part of your digestive system. It is not for oral sex. The Creator has designed our body parts for specific functions.
To OK oral sexual activity on the scriptures in The Song of Solomon is absurd. If you interpret oral sex here it is because you “want” to read it. The Song of Solomon is a colorful poetic writing, which expresses the love for the spouse by elaborating on nature. Do you really think that this inspired Book of Songs, which also refers to Christ’s Love for His Bride, or God’s Love for Israel, should be interpreted on a carnal level? Or contains lustful passions.
The Lord is a Holy God; let these thoughts be far from us. Be not deceived for God is not mocked. Solomon 2 verse 7… (Last part) Do not stir up nor awaken love until it pleases… (Repeated in 3:5 and 8:4) The significance of this refrain seems to be that love must be allowed to grow naturally, in its own time. It is not to be forced or given an artificial stimulus. Christian couples have to practice holiness, self-control, self-discipline in any side of their marriage, even in their sexual relationship.
Because you are married, does not mean you are free to do whatever you like with your spouse. You still have to walk in holiness; you still have to exercise self discipline.
Sexual enjoyment is given to lawful partners but should not escalate to lustful desires, which will bring one to sin. The bed should be kept honorable. In ALL we do, we should give praises unto the Lord, even in our sexual relationship with our spouse. Spouses should stimulate each other to please the Lord in this and to shun fleshly lusts.
Titus 2: 11, 12 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men. Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world.
1 John 2:16, 17 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but who does the will of God abides forever.
James 1: 14, 15 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust has conceived, it brings forth sin: and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.
Romans 13:14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof.
2 Peter 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
Romans 6:12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in the lusts thereof.
1 Peter 2:11 Dearly beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which wars against the soul.
WHAT DOES THE WORD SAY ABOUT SODOMITES
1 Corinthians 6:9… Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites,
1 Timothy 1:10… for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine.
WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF SODOMY
Sodomy \sa-de-me\ n
- 1 : sexual intercourse with a member of the same sex or with an animal.
- 2 : noncoital and esp. anal or oral sexual intercourse with a member of the opposite sex. sodomize \sa-de-mz\ vb (C) 1995 Zane Publishing, Inc. (The Merriam-Webster Dictionary (C) 1994 by Merriam-Webster, Incorporated).
Sodomy = unnatural carnal intercourse between man and woman (New Lexicon Webster’s Encyclopeic Dictionary, and Dictionary of English Synonyms, Checkerbooks).
- 1: anal copulation of one male with another.
- 2: anal or oral copulation with a member of the opposite sex.
- 3: Copulation with an animal. (Reader’s Digest Illustrated Encyclopedic Dictionary)
Sodomy is sodomy! Just because a male and female are married, does not mean that they can practise sodomy! What else does the Word say regarding sex and marriage? I believe that the Word says exactly what is means in the Scripture below, marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled (I interpret this to mean having clean, enjoyable sex with your mate, but not by committing sodomy!).
Is God a respecter of persons? Does He condemn the sodomites who are unsaved, and allow the married Christian couple to commit sodomy and not sin? Never! Paul says: Romans 6:1… What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Hebrew 13:4… Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.
The definition of undefiled is: 283 amiantos (am-ee’-an-tos); from 1 (as a negative particle) and a derivative of 3392; unsoiled, i.e. (figuratively) pure: KJV– undefiled. 283 amiantos= not defiled, unsoiled: free from that by which the nature of a thing is deformed and debased, or its force and vigor impaired.
Proverbs 25:28… Like a city whose walls are broken down is a man who lacks self-control. 1 Corinthians 7: 5… so that satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control..
1 Corinthians 7: 9… but if they cannot exercise self-control, ……
Galatians 6:8… Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
Romans 8 :13-14… For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. Allow the Holy Spirit to do the work in your life, at any cost. Romans 8:18… For I consider that the sufferings of the present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed to us.
Philippians. 1:27… Only let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of your affairs, that you stand fast in the spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel.
1 Timothy 6:11b-12… and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
