 Biblical Sexual Attraction

The Bible makes a distinction between admiration of beauty and sexual attraction. The beauty of Job’s daughters was recognized throughout the land. That is not the same as saying that people throughout the land desired them sexually. On the other hand, Proverbs 5:19 speaks of being captivated (NIV) or intoxicated (ESV) by love for one’s wife. Admiration of beauty is public and appropriate when there is no intimacy or desire involved. Sexual attraction is restricted for marriage.

Christ warns against lust leading to adultery of the heart. Paul insists that Christians are not to live life as the world does, becoming dominated by sensuality. Sensuality is what passes for sexual attraction in this culture–but sensuality is actually the opposite of biblical sexual attraction.

 Re: Biblical Sexual Attraction


This is so so deep and right on. If more people would see that we the Sons and Daughters of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords are to walk a walk of holiness unto him..

Lev 20:7
7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD your God.

David learned a hard lesson as the word teaches us..
There are many consequences of a heart that is not fully the LORDs.

Psa 24

3 ¶ Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?

4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. { 5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
