Spirit Empowered Sexual Self-Control
The Wicked Nature of Sexual Sin

It’s the Opposite of Love (masquerading)
Our culture’s definition of love.
It should not be surprising that the misguided quest for that kind of love leads inevitably to immorality and impurity, because that kind of love is selfish and destructive, a deceptive counterfeit of God’s love. It is always conditional and is always self-centered. It is not concerned about commitment but only satisfaction; it is not concerned about giving but only getting.

It lasts until the one loved no longer satisfies or until he or she disappears for someone else.
