Even in a life wrapped in prayers and scriptures reading, many have found themselves enslaved to a behavior that they do not want and even despise. While some Christians may not struggle with sexual temptations, many struggle with controlling sexual desires.
Urging someone to read more, be saved, go to church, and stop sinning are excellent thing to do but believers can still miss how to overcome certain temptations.
Facing sexual temptations is still thought inappropriate to openly address in some churches, but people need teaching on this subject as seen by sexual immorality facing Christians from the first century unto today. The man who can honestly say that he has never been tempted to lust after a woman is rare. Just as rare is the woman who can say that she has not been tempted to romantically fantasize about man.
There is not any particular person or generation to blame. Christians must become accountable for themselves and to each other. Yes, it would have been nice to have avoided any exposure or abuse to such sins. However, faith compels believers to pursue freedom in Christ.
