|How Does One Attain Sexual Purity? by Maclink288: 5:39am On May 02|
In a world where the sin of the flesh is so common, how does one attain sexual purity and what are the scriptural passages one could reflect on?
|Re: How Does One Attain Sexual Purity? by AlhajiNatty(m): 5:49am On May 02|
OP, the answer to your question is not far-fetched.
I refer you to the part of the Christian Bible in which Jesus gave out same advice to his followers.
OP, any part of you that will hinder you from attaining eternal redemption, Bible si anyi to simply Cut it OFF.
So OP, ajuju has answered itself.

Maclink288:Love, loyalty/faithfulness, dignity, integrity, kindness, morals, a good heart and a good character, are what makes a man/woman and also enable him/her attain sexual purity.
Maclink288:1 Thessalonians 4:3-9
'3For it is God’s will that you should be holy:
You must abstain from sexual immorality;
4each of you must know how to control his own body in holiness and honor,
5not in lustful passion like the Gentiles who do not know God;
6and no one should ever violate or exploit his brother in this regard,
because the Lord will avenge all such acts, as we have already told you and solemnly warned you.
7For God has not called us to impurity, but to holiness.
8Anyone, then, who rejects this command does not reject man but God, the very One who gives you His Holy Spirit.
9Now about brotherly love, you do not need anyone to write to you, because you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another.'
Sexual purity, is to have sexual relations with someone you love and who loves you back. Sexual immorality, is having sex with who is not your marriage partner

By surrounding yourself with the things of the spirit. Listening to gospel musics, teachings, studying the word of God.

First of all you have to desire to be sexually pure, next start making efforts to become what you desire, and also ask God to help you become what you desire to be, and you shall become what you desire with God's help.
Matthew 5:6 (KJV)
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

If you are a Youth, You have to get closer to God and know him more.
Read the word of God, attend midweek services, do your quiet time, meditate on Gods word all times, Pray in the spirit always.
Sexual temptation(Testosterone) is a strong one and you need an equal or greater force to overcome it.
But If you are old enough.
Start plans to get married.
It is not good for a Man to be alone
It is better to get married than to burn
Dont let any "BRO" deceive you

By drinking plenty of water and minding your business.

Sexual purity is not about whether or not you have sex, don’t limit it to physical sex
|Re: How Does One Attain Sexual Purity? by mrnairaland1(m): 9:42am On May 02|
Here’s a strategy: F.L.E.E.
It’s biblical, it’s hard to forget, and it fits on a napkin.
1. First, fill yourself with Christ.
Fill your life with His word and His people: “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another” (Colossians 3:16).
2. Second, lock out the lies.
When and where are you hearing seductive speech? How can you get away? Whatever the cost—your smartphone, home internet, a relationship—if it helps you see God, it’s a net gain. After all, “it is better for you to enter life with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into the hell of fire” (Matthew 18:9).
3. Third, exchange lies for truth.
Are you embracing lies, or exchanging them for the truth? Are you glorifying the body, or are you glorifying God with your body? When seductive speech calls out, remember, “all her slain are a mighty throng” (Proverbs 7:26).
4. Finally, expose yourself to the light.
So, are you hiding? Confess your sins to God. He forgives! But don’t stop there. “Confess your sins to one another and pray for one another” (James 5:16). That’s what Christian friends are for.
It is good news that we are not condemned in Christ, and it is good news that we are no longer slaves to sin. My friends, flee from sexual immorality.

By hanging her on the church gate and fvcking her salvation style then shoot your hot cum in her mouth.

Muslims will never attain sexual purity.
You know why?? A lot of them are pedophiles. They marry a 10 years old girl and brutalize her kpekus at that tender age without pity.
This is enshrined in their doctrines as normal.
|Re: How Does One Attain Sexual Purity? by RuddyFusion(m): 9:44am On May 02|
You can still do these and fall short without the help of the HOLYSPIRIT.
I think one needs to be truly born again and be lead by the spirit and then actively followship in the house of God
With this , one will be ok

Give your self to the study of God's word and remember Phil 4:8.
Thy word have I hid in my heart that I may not sin against thee. Palms 119 vs 11.
|Re: How Does One Attain Sexual Purity? by Raptor2cool: 9:55am On May 02|
What you seek for is no ordinary knowledge, it something great that we men underestimate and never acknowledge.
Believe me bible alone won't help you to achieve this power, you need serious discipline exercises to achieve this great will power.
Ever hard the word " A man who can control his sexual urge has solved %50 of life issue"
That all i have to say.
Don't take advice from here alone, research more on this.
|Re: How Does One Attain Sexual Purity? by jaeyking(m): 9:58am On May 02|
Flee from any temptation that would lead to sexual immorality.
Ask God for the great Comforter to come into your life @Holy Spirit to serve as a guidance to you.
in this modern age sexual immorality is very high.
it takes a strong perseverance and will to overcome it.
even great men in the Bible fell for it.
But we should also look at man like Joseph that overcame it.
|Re: How Does One Attain Sexual Purity? by KemLaughs(f): 10:00am On May 02|
Ask the holy spirit to help you. Look for and keep only like-minded friends. Make a covenant with God to stay holy. Look for stories of those who have done it and encourage yourself with it. Consistently pray, read the bible and listen to kingdom messages.
This is why you must keep running away from sexual immorality. For every other sin a person commits is external to the body, but immorality involves sinning against your own body.1 Cor 6:18
Your body is a serious resource in the realm of the spirit. Treasure it!
|Re: How Does One Attain Sexual Purity? by femi4: 10:02am On May 02|
Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.
(1 Corinthians 9:27). As a child of God, one thing you have to consciously do is to put your body in subjection to the Word.
|Re: How Does One Attain Sexual Purity? by Zinpat: 10:04am On May 02|
In addition 2 above good advises, take d decision n stand by it no matter d pressure or mockery from friends. U can do it!
|Re: How Does One Attain Sexual Purity? by Oracleforce: 10:05am On May 02|
Op we are born in sins and iniquity however, purity comes not by your efforts or ability but by going through the process ....unto perfection.
As a Christian, this is a qualification to the eternal home so, from where you are���
have to determine within yourself how you will live your life in purity and follow the process till perfection...
If you are determined, find the process and align your life with it. Gradually you will get there...

RuddyFusion:Stop contradicting yourself. You cannot do all that if you are not inspired by the holy spirit
“I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh”

1 John 2:15. Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
1 Corinthians 6:18 - Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
Matthew 5:28 - But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
1 Thessalonians 4:3 - For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
1 Corinthians 7:2 - Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
The truth is, only God can help us. Sex is everywhere now
|Re: How Does One Attain Sexual Purity? by VampireeM(f): 11:20am On May 02|
I believe the first step is making up your mind and taking that firm decision on Sexual Purity no matter what(Though its not easy). Also pray for the grace and the Holy spirit to guide you.
Shun immorality and all sexual looseness [flee from impurity in thought, word, or deed]. Any other sin which a man commits is one outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own,
1 Corinthians 6:18-19 AMPC
|Re: How Does One Attain Sexual Purity? by OkCornel(m): 11:24am On May 02|
James 1 v 13-15 holds the key here;
13 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone;
14 but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed.
15 Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.
Actions like this starts with a thought. We are tempted because our mind holds captive certain lustful thoughts and we act out on these.
Purify your mind, replace those thoughts with something positive, passionate and fulfilling. Focus on these positive things consistently (for example, how to use your God given talents to solve people’s problems), you would barely have time to even execute those lustful thoughts.
Deal with the thoughts in the mind, your actions will align, and eventually sexual purity is achieved.
God help us all...
|Re: How Does One Attain Sexual Purity? by sesaan(m): 11:25am On May 02|
well that's simple, have alot of sex until you get bored of it and no longer hunger for it
Everything you quote Bible, many of you acclaimed Christians don't even know the history of the Bible you believe in..
