... Put on the Lord Jesus Christ and make no provision for the desires of the flesh. (Rom. 13:14)Who said this? A Puritan, a Manichean who separates flesh from spirit and who doesn't know that lust can be redeemed, as the Westians insist it can?
No, it was St. Paul.
Is he saying sexual desire is bad? Of course not.
But he is saying "make no provision" for the desire of the flesh.
In other words, don't spend most of your waking hours figuring out how to game the system. Provide for your wife and kids, but don't provide handy excuses for viewing pornography on the internet, telling yourself that when it comes to porn, virtue and mortification are old fashioned and outmoded tools of "moralists". Stop "making provision" by telling yourself that you have "mature purity" and can gaze on naked bodies, that sodomy can be a legitimate way of expressing love, that Hugh Hefner is a hero - all things that Christopher West and his ilk have been telling their followers.
If this isn't "making provision for the desire of the flesh", what is it?
Again, your choice is to listen to the Apostle, a zealous follower of Christ and martyr for the Faith - or listen to a rock star with a gimmick.
