Hey Family! It has been over 6 months since the last time I wrote a post. I am proud to say that drought has come to an end. I was recently extended an opportunity to write a guest post for MissAleck.com and I happily accepted. The topic I was asked to write about was Men & Celibacy. I hope that you all enjoy the post and will show me some luv by leaving comments sharing your thoughts on both the topic and my return to writing. Thank you in advance.
Men & Celibacy. Those are two words that are rarely used together. If you let media, women and the world tell it, men are all but incapable of abstaining from sex. They need it, want it and would neva, eva eva eva turn it down. So if that’s the nature of a man, how are things supposed to differ if the man is saved, a Christian or is planted firmly in his religious or spiritual beliefs? That man is held at a higher standard, right? That man is above and beyond the temptations and desires of his flesh, right? WRONG!
Who are we talking about here? Iron man? Batman? Nah, we can’t be. Plus, I’m pretty sure both of those dudes have had their fair share of coo, even if it was in some imaginative comic book world. The truth is I don’t know too many men, saved or not, who have successfully committed to celibacy…myself included. So before we start rebuking men for their inability to commit to a celibate lifestyle, allow me to share with you a glimpse of the struggle men must endure on a DAILY basis.
