Morality uplifting sexuality

The value of morality is to lift human experience out of depraved physicality and into closer accord with spiritual reality—man's natural state. Nowhere is morality more needed than in the area of human sexuality. There are few who have not shed sexually related tears. These may be caused by failure to fill a stereotyped sex role, discrimination encountered because of gender, grief over sexual activity engendering guilt, remorse for failure to fulfill a legitimate marital role, or the torment of perversion.

Only spirituality can wipe away all such tears, and spirituality is the basis of morality. The commandment "Thou shalt not commit adultery" springs from "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." Ex. 20:14, 3. The desire to worship God, Spirit, and to serve Him urges one to strive to express moral qualities. This Christ-impelled desire finds expression in all areas of human life.
