Jefferson Bethke – Sexual Healing


You pyonged “Jefferson Bethke – Sexual Healing”

Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

So let's look at this subject, and I'll tell you why I'm disgusted
So tonight looks like sex will be the topic of discussion
Now sex isn’t evil, for marriage is why God made it
But I know you like come on Jeff, that’s too outdated.
This is 2011 bro, we do it for recreation
Hey this is even college, so we do it while you’re wasted
But I want to look that logic lets pop off the seal
And lets question something we thought is already a done deal
For example take a rape victim and once its revealed
When her bruises go away is she totally healed?
No, the damage is lasting, you can see it in her eyes
If it was just abused recreation, why did it ruin her life?
I mean if sex is just for fun then why on us does it take such a toll?
Maybe its because You don’t have sex with a body, you have sex with a soul.

That means for me there ain't no premarital lovin'
And it ain't just because I don’t want a baby in the oven
Its because I’m staying pure until the day that I’m a husband
But see this wasn’t always me that’s guarantee
So lets go back and see who I used to be
Growing up, I never learned how to treat a lady
If I learned anything from my dad, it was leave the mom, ditch the baby
I don’t say that to get sympathy, I say that to be real
Because according to stats, about 40% of you know how that feels
So I let the tv show me, what the music already told me
No dad at home, so I let mtv mold me
And they sold me, so my life revolved around what girl I could get next
My whole life revolved around this girl name sex
Shoot I gotta confess Id get at her on text
But it seems the longer we dated, the bigger the mess
But see ive been there, where my girlfriend was late on that time of the month
If you’ve been there too, you know what I mean when I say my heart sunk
I started to justify abortion, I would butter it up
But they don’t have condoms for sin, you can't just cover it up
I didn’t have a baby, thankfully
Its funny how I was pro-life, until it happened to me
So dudes think twice before you desire her just cuz she’s hot
Because your body makes a promise whether you do or not

Sorry I digress, lets get back to the topic
How there are guys in here who pressure her even when she says stop it
Youre not a man, youre just a boy who can shave and you put on a good cover
Cuz if you don’t respect her when she says no, you certainly don’t love her
So start studying her heart, and stop studying her booty
Or maybe invest the same amount of time in her, that you do in call of duty
I mean whats make you think you have the right to get a girl and get naughty?
You should have to touch her heart and her mind first before you ever touch her body
Because she longs to be accepted, she longs to be loved
So she gives herself up to another guys lust
It feels good at first, and then she gets bitter
Cuz the promises of satisfaction it never delivers
See shes like man I don’t want to, its just too tempting
So she keeps opening up the present, just to find its empty
And then she starts to get confused
Because she keeps getting rejected by all these dudes
They tell her on scale of 10 shes a two
But that ain't true, if she only knew
That Jesus, he loves and accepts us
Even when we don’t deserve it, he never rejects us
He heals us from that sin totally infects us
He does what condoms can't, he emotionally protect us
I know some of you like “this guys wack” and you gunna wanna indict me
But we gotta think rightly, so ill ask politely
Can we really say this isn’t true even slightly?
Touch the forbidden fruit, just to realize its poison ivy
Now we’re numb and we’re itching, and jacked up our psyche
You don’t think you just do it, like your name was nike
Not realizing the consequences of sin, is oh so pricey

So this last story is for those who think they’re too dirty
This last story, its for those who think they’re unworthy
Read John chapter 8, the woman caught in adultery
Religious leaders throw her naked in the temple, while she yells “Don’t murder me”
“Jesus! The law commands us to stone this woman!” you hear the hate in their tone
Jesus pauses and then says, “whoever is without sin, you can cast the first stone”
Can you imagine the sound? Silence all around
You hear footsteps walk away, you hear stones hit the ground
Jesus kneels down, the woman thought it was her demise
He lifts up her face, you see the grace in his eyes
I don’t condemn you, go and sin no more
I love and accept you, mercy is yours
If you’re anything like me you’re like no it can't be, no I can't see
Why would he die for me?
Then I saw the scene, where I was redeemed
He reached out and touched me, and said Jeff you’re free
Instantly I was wearing the brightest robe id ever seen
Perfectly spotless, perfectly clean!
So bright in fact, I thought id go blind
I said who’s is this? He said “actually its mine”
So stop and think before you eat what society feeds us
Come follow the King, his name is Jesus
