Purity is God-given

A correct understanding of God and man provides a definite, powerful remedy for compulsive and inordinate appetite.

People have long searched for ways to limit and control sensual appetites. Alcoholism, drug abuse, and sexual misconduct are sometimes called "victimless crimes," but they do harm participating individuals, as well as a wider circle of family, friends, and community. Ancient wisdom teaches the need for self-control. But no broad success appears at hand. In fact, the so-called "modern spirit" all but abandoned this ideal decades ago—although renewed interest in ethics and religion in some circles may signal a tiring in the frantic search for personal fulfillment through material gratification.
