Let’s Be Real

Have you ever heard someone say, “What two people do behind closed doors is their business,” or, “If you love each other, that’s all that matters”? People seem so confident as they say those words, as if they are defending a basic human right.

But is it right to come together sexually outside of the lifetime covenant of marriage? What is the fruit of exercising this supposed freedom? Ultimately, it produces mistrust, damaged souls, and children who don’t have a mommy and daddy who love each other enough to be married. Can such disorder possibly come from the God who made all of nature in its intricately entwined order and beauty?

It is the right of every human being to be able to look into the eyes of at least one other person and totally trust him, to know that he is your true friend who will never forsake you. These days virginity is often considered an embarrassment — something you want to get rid of as soon as possible. Yet it is intended to be the foundation of trust between you and the one to whom you give your whole life in the covenant of marriage. Outside of this covenant, no matter what words you use to deceive yourself or others, what your actions say is, “I don’t love you enough to want to be faithful to you for the rest of my life. But for now I would like to use you until I get tired of you or until someone better comes along.”

What motivates someone who is trying to save the earth, the whales, or the rain forests, yet is destroying human beings, God’s highest creation, by ravaging their souls and crippling their ability to trust and form deep, lasting relationships? It is a tragic irony that human beings are so passionate about preserving the wonders of Creation and so passionless about the desires of its Creator. For it is God’s passionate desire that His Creation would be the peaceful dwelling place of a human society based on love and trust, built upon generations of faithful marriages and secure children, all in communion with Him through His Son, Yahshua.

Let’s be real. The consequences of casual sex are devastating. Your soul is irreparably scarred by every sexual encounter that ended in less than a lifetime bond of love. But there is good news for those who are suffering the guilt and pain of broken relationships. Yahshua has already paid the price of your forgiveness with his own blood, and has established a healing environment where you can find true love and lifelong friendships. If you are ready to turn your back on your old life, then he is ready to give you a new one — a fresh, clean start. Please let us show you how.

The Twelve Tribes is a confederation of twelve self-governing tribes, composed of self-governing communities. We are disciples of the Son of God whose name in Hebrew is Yahshua. We follow the pattern of the early church in Acts 2:44 and 4:32, truly believing everything that is written in the Old and New Covenants of the Bible, and sharing all things in common.
