Get It On

     Excuse me for the sensationalistic header!    It's attention grabbing is it not?   Well,  let me acquit myself of any notion that I mean to glorify such a crude and common sentiment.     Every time I watch TV,  movies,  or simply listen to radio stations I hear and see examples of this mindset.     The other day I was unfortunately exposed(I was a guest at someone else's home)  to the crude dialogue and perversion that the show Two and a Half Men promotes.    Charlie Sheen's  character is at a restaurant with his lady friend  who's college room mate has joined them for dinner.  All the while that the two women are chatting and catching up I was subjected to all the thoughts running through Charlie's mind.   It was all about threesomes, cheating,  staring at the room mates assets.    Vulgar is such a mild word for this internal soliloquy that I actually felt embarrassed to be in the room listening to it with others present.

     Consider the words of Marvin Gaye's hit song:

I've been really tryin', baby
Tryin' to hold back this feeling for so long
And if you feel like I feel, baby
Then, c'mon, oh, c'mon
Let's get it on
Ah, baby, let's get it on
Let's love, baby
Let's get it on, sugar
Let's get it on
We're all sensitive people
With so much to give
Understand me, sugar
Since we've to be here
Let's live
I love you
There's nothing wrong with me
Loving you, baby no no
And giving yourself to me can never be wrong
If the love is true
Don't you know how sweet and wonderful life can be
I'm asking you baby to get it on with me
I ain't gonna worry
I ain't gonna push, won't push you baby
So c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, baby
Stop beatin' 'round the bush
Let's get it on
Let's get it on
You know what I'm talkin' 'bout
C'mon, baby
Let your love come out
If you believe in love
Let's get it on
Let's get it on, baby
This minute, oh yeah
Let's get it on
Please, let's get it on
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, baby
Stop beatin' 'round the bush
Oh, gonna get it on
Threaten' you, baby
I wanna get it on
You don't have to worry that it's wrong
If the spirit moves ya
Let me groove ya good
Let your come down
Oh, get it on
C'mon, baby
Do you know the meaning?
I've been sanctified
Girl, you give me good feeling

      Reading these lyrics clues us in to how crude and debased God's beautiful gift to human kind has become.   Mind you,  these words are for sissies if compared to  the modern diet of a rap music fan.    The funny thing about the song above is that he croons about not being pushy but says "Let's Get It On"  about 30 times!    Let's be real,   if we abuse something that literally has the power of life and death involved,  then we can expect to see the sad corpses of failed relationships,  disease,  abused women and children,  men who've made a tragic gamble,  and a lost civilization.    Generations of kids are being raised in a smut factory.     Controlling your kids viewing choices,  music library, and friend picks is not overkill.   It's smart!    While you are at it,   censor the trash you put in as well.   I don't recommend anyone actually watch Two and a Half Men.    You could fall into the same thought patterns as the show's most vile character.   I doubt Ashton Kutcher's introduction will make it any better.
Sensuality is actually best enjoyed within the right bounds.    It's not a popular thing to say and you could be called a prude or worse.     Well,  laugh away cruel world.    Laugh while you cry at the memory of all the lovers that finally rejected you,  children you may have had if that pushy boyfriend had not insisted you get "it" taken care of,   or  who you might have married if you had not branded yourself as "used."     Marriage is a statement to the world and your choice of a partner that this person is so important that you will "promise."     Also,  more importantly,  God will bless the act of marrying.   God never intended for this gift to be turned on it's head,  turned into a curse.    In the world's motto of "Let's Get it On"  we see sex being used as a weapon that destroys people in too many categories to be named.      This is my humble take on the matter.    I may be called judgmental,   but it's imperative that we(Christians)  expose the sensual lies of the destroyer.   He truly is roaming around,  seeking who he can devour.
