Red Sky at Morning
- Mar 15, 2017
I think God created pleasure, and that the good pleasures of this life are a foretaste of the eternal joy God intends for us.@Red Sky at Morning like ive said...christianity is about the complete death of the flesh and hence zero passion...so if you're enjoying music, even wholesome music, not to say you're evil or wrong, but it means your carnal nature and the passion that drives it...are very much alive.
Which pretty much means you arent born again and one with Christ in heart and spirit.
There is certainly a history of Christian asceticism but, to use the analogy of food and drink, food is good, flavours are incredible but gluttony and drunkenness are not God’s will.
Some people who can’t handle food require a gastric bypass. Some people who can’t drink without craving drunkenness are best not touching alcohol. Those who can’t look at a pretty girl without lusting after her may do well to avoid temptation.
Try a bit of Paul…
1 Corinthians 6:12-20 KJV
“All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.”
