~~~<quoted text>Kay Marie,
I used to think the same way as you described, but in time, working with abusers I learned that whether they get satisfied at home with their wives or not has nothing to do with their sexual abuse of others.Thuis is a preference and a problem. This is a compulsion that will drive them no matter what the wife presents. do agree that some husbands cheat because of the coldness and lack of affection from their wives.I know this is no excuse and the husbands are part of the problem.Love your posts and love you and your husband.
We Love you and your wife...and am so thankful that God has brought you to this point of your recovery.
Php 1:2 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
Php 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
GOD is a loving father, and it is His attributes TO supply all of you needs.
Php_4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Your Salvation includes...
welfare, health, prosperity, deliverance, and victory...
THE ABOVE... was GOD'S plan for Adam and Eve..
before they sinned and
it is available
for/to all that are restored ( return ) to God's fellowship
when they receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior, by faith.
All the above was God's intention for all upon earth ...Had sin not entered into the spectrum...
When one returns to God by repentance all the benefits that were pre-Adamic are restored to them.
Adam and Eve did not do works... to earn fellowship with God ...before they sinned...Their earthly occupation was to take care of the garden..but they did not do any works to enjoy fellowship with GOD...
He came down in the cool of the day and walked with them.
ALL GOD'S CREATION.. exists for HIS pleasure...and to be the objective
of His UNFAILING LOVE and BENEFITS.
Rev 4:10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
Rev 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power:
for -->thou hast created all things,
and for thy pleasure they are and were created.<--
2Pe_3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward,
-->not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. <--
As for the subject of working with abusers and adulterers...
Rom my observation
I have concluded that...
Many men are addicted to the sexual adrenalin high/trip that they
experience, and the power they feel over their victims..
For some ...It is worse than mainlining drugs.
just my opinion
