<089> Thesis: God stands perpetually ready to overpower our bondage to our bodies' appetites if we are willing to depend upon Him to do it. Introduction: We saw in our study of the previous verses that the true knowledge of God leads to men and women taking ownership of their own bodies so that those bodies become "vessels of demonstration" of the Truth. We also saw that God has a dual purpose in addressing our sexuality: to preserve us from the disasters that come upon those in bondage to their lusts by being our power; and to preserve our "brethren" from being subjected to such lusts run amuck by being their avenger. This evening we are going to look into the last concepts in this paragraph on keeping a lid on sexual lust: the intention of God in "salvation" and the clarification of what is really happening in those who do not yield to that "call".
