Disordered desires are desires that might be healthy, but exercised in a place with no boundaries. That’s why our strongest desires are not always our deepest desires. Our culture today says that freedom means you can do “whatever makes you happy” as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else, but that isn’t freedom at all. Pastor Jacob uses pornography as an example. Sexual desire was designed by God, but when they become disordered, it becomes sexual sin. Some think watching pornography is not hurting anyone else. However, every time someone does watch, it encourages human trafficking, ruins marriages, and destroys souls.
What we do by ourselves still has effects on others.
Living in freedom is placing our God-designed desires into His life-giving boundaries.
