The Enemy of Lust

There’s an enemy that lurks within us, an enemy that plagues men from puberty until the day we die. It’s the enemy of lust, a force so powerful that it draws us towards others even when we’re content with our significant other. Lust, the insatiable desire for sexual gratification, gnaws at us, leaving many men questioning why this enemy is so deeply embedded within them.

Welcome to our candid discussion on the enemy of lust and its power over men. Over the years, we’ve noticed a common theme among the men we counsel – the struggle with lust. Regardless of whether they’re getting plenty of sex from their partners or none at all, these men find themselves lusting after others. The question we aim to answer today is, why is this enemy of lust so deeply rooted in us?

The scientific, psychological, and philosophical explanations for lust are vast and varied. However, despite countless studies and opinions, the true origin of lust remains elusive. It’s akin to the mystery of sleep; despite extensive research, we still know very little about it. But, if we trace back to the source of the problem, we find ourselves at the fall of humanity.

Before the fall, everything was good. God said it was good, and so it was. However, the rebellion of man during the fall marked the origin of sin, and with sin came serious problems. Lust, one such problem, has plagued men ever since. This struggle with lust is universal among men; if it’s not a struggle now, it has been in the past, or it will be in the future.

The urge of lust, which runs deep in our blood, began with the fall of man. This primal craving, however, doesn’t have to control us. The first step towards overcoming lust is acknowledging its presence and understanding its origin.

If you find yourself wrestling with lust, consider investigating it. The Warrior Week program provides a platform for such exploration. This program doesn’t merely brush over the surface level answers but delves into the heart of the matter. The investigation is personal and requires your active engagement.

It’s important to remember that personal does not mean private. Nowadays, people often confuse the two. Personal beliefs, like belief in God or faith, shouldn’t be private. They should be shared openly without shame or fear. Taking a stand for your beliefs will inevitably stir up debate and conflict, but that’s a part of the process.

The disease of sin, which includes lust, began with the fall of humanity. For over 2000 years, it has been a part of human existence. However, acknowledging its presence and understanding its origin is the first step to overcoming it. The struggle with lust is real, but it doesn’t have to define us. We have the power to overcome it, one step at a time.
