I actually found the article

I actually found the article quite disingenuous and insulting. According to the author, "God created us with sexual drive, but he also gave us a steering wheel and a brake to direct and control our drives."

Naturally, a married man could direct his sexual drive toward his wife.

But what about those who have no wife? Clearly finding 'outlets' ranging from prostitution to one-night stands are not acceptable. Yet, according to the author, "If you isolate yourself in a room and indulge in pornography, you are not sick; you are evil." So essentially, if you have no wife to steer toward and have not fully stopped your sex drive, you are evil. Lust on a computer screen and lust in your mind are equally evil. Thus, according to the author, you must shut down that God-given sex drive until you have a wife to satisfy those desires, otherwise you sin against God.

Another gem from the author: "You are not oversexed. You are not even sexed. You are alone." Thanks for the reminder that I am alone, author. I wonder if being alone has anything to do with why I might be watching porn.

One would think the author, who claims to preach often, would be smart enough to realize that there are no longer arranged marriages and the like as was commonplace in the year of our Lord. Single people are a reality, as much as I wish it weren't. There are likely hundreds of millions of people without the 'submissive spouse' we find in 1 Corinthians 7:3-5, 10-14. There is no release to 'direct' that God-given sex drive to.

I guess single people with sex drives are hell bound.
