Defrauding One Another (Who Is At Sin)? (2012)

Let me say in the beginning of the blog that I am in no way excusing the act of adultery….it is a horrible offense to the covenant of marriage, ordained by God. But as many sins, we often look at the substance of the sin and not origin of the sin.  As an example, homosexuality is a sin, can’t excuse it in no way, shape, or form.   But what about the young man who was molested as child by some sick adult, do we deal with the sin of homosexuality in the person life, the same one as one who just decide that I am gay.

The Apostle Paul taught a valuable lesson in the sexuality of marriage.  It can be found in 1st Corinthians 7:5, and though he spoke not of the spirit, but by permission as a Apostle in the Church, it makes good sense.  5)”Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency. 6) But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment.” 

Now let me get in trouble:  Women are known for their famous headaches, and putting a man on hold, or better yet their husband (just in case someone thought this was for those not married.).  Women are famous for using their bodies for a form of punishment to keep the man under control. As it is believed that most men are weaker with their control of not having sex, so if this be true, using their body would be the last thing a woman would want to do. 

Now there might be a man who withholds sex from their wife….I just don’t know any.  Most husbands you can be as mad as you want, you don’t have to move, if you allow him, he is going to get what he can.   But what a man can do is let his career (get mad pastors) or his church, or ministry become so important that the needs of home is not taken care of.    So if the needs are taken care of and if the woman withholds, or whatever the case might be, the husband withholds, and the other is defraud, then we open the doors for temptation that might led your mate into sin. 

So unless you take time off for prayer or fasting and both agree to it, and it should not take month or so, to hear from God, withholding can be dangerous to a marriage.  And that danger can be adultery, an addiction to porn, and many other things, sexual or non sexual that can bring damage to the marriage.   My question or my theory is that though the one who falls to the temptation is at sin, but also is the one who defrauds their mate is at sin also.  Just a thought……….
