Marriage & the Sins of the 6th & 9th CommandmentsJul 18, 2023
If you live according to the flesh you will die but if by the spirit you mortify the works of the body you will have the name of father and son Holy Spirit amen, we have been working on the Ten Commandments and due to mass confusion. In our society we have been trying to build a really solid foundation for understanding the Sixth and Ninth Commandments. Throughout, we have seen a constant theme, the incredible importance God places on great creative power. Let's review when we began, we consider the surprising fact, although God could have continued making men just as he did the first from scratch, fresh out of the slime of the earth and breathing into them the breath of life, although he could have continued making men like that, not He did, instead, God shared some of his incredible creative power by blessing man and woman and making them joint guardians of this incredible holy power by cooperating with him to give birth to immortal baby creatures and precisely because his power to give birth to light new immortal beings is so incredible, so important and so holy, God protected the creative power by enveloping it with purity and modesty and then ordered that it only be used within the limits of a very blessed and special state of life, a state of life which is so blessed that in the case of a baptized man, a woman God has resurrected.
At the level of a sacrament, the sacrament of holy matrimony, we have seen that the main purpose of this blessed state of life is the procreation and education of children since it is God's plan that babies not only come into the world within a family but He was also raised in the world within a family, so the constant theme is that the power to generate new life is a holy power that must be carefully protected with modest and pure behavior. It is a special gift from God intended to be used by married couples and married people.
For couples alone, this point was made very clear by Pope Pius Xi's encyclical on Christian
marriage. Both the main purpose of
marriageis the procreation and education of children, since the duty entrusted to parents is of such high dignity and of such great importance. The God-given power for the procreation of new life is the right and privilege of the marital state alone and must be absolutely limited within the sacred boundaries of that state. close quote The Vicar of Christ the main purpose of marriage is the procreation and education of children, the duty entrusted to parents is of such high dignity and of such great importance that each use of that great creative power is a right and privilege exclusive of married people and must be limited absolutely within the sacred limits of that state of marriage. so that each of us firmly understands that point, that is where the war is right now, our enemies in the culture of death are using television, movies, videos, music, the Internet, magazines, public schools, all their weapons of mass destruction to destroy constantly and this same idea once. we see this clearly it is easy to understand the six the ninth commandment you shall not commit adultery you shall not covet your neighbor's wife on the one hand these two
commandmentsrequire that each man preserve the purity of his mind and body by regulating that great creative power in accordance with the reason and faith, on the other hand, these two Commandments prohibit him from sinning against that power and thought where Rudi let us consider how these Commandments apply to both the married and the single in America, as we have seen, the main purpose of the Marriage is the procreation education of children secondary purpose of marriage mutual help and comfort of the spouses and remedy for can Cuba the sense between the spouses is good to the extent that they conform to these two purposes of marriage the general principle is that Is everything in accordance with these two purposes, procreation? the education of children is and also the mutual consolation and relief of being able to maintain a meaning everything that I can for myself with those two purposes is good and permissible everything that opposes them is bad and forbidden examples of evil and forbidden acts they would include adultery, contraception and direct sterilization. bachelors to preserve modesty and not corrupt innocence we will only consider it a sin once we understand that we will understand all the other premutations well talking about the bachelor Pope Alexander VII downplays the idea that it is only a venial sin for bachelors to kiss for pleasure sensual that arises from the kiss even if there is no danger to consent or go further is condemned to say that it is only a venial sin single to deliberately kiss for the pleasure of kissing that is a condemned moral error what does this mean Channel Five has just explained its quote: this means that every time someone with sufficient reflection in full consent of the will delights in a carnal or sensual pleasure associated with someone to whom he is not married he commits a mortal sin this not only applies to kisses but also regarding to other touches made seeking the same type of pleasure the reason is the delight taking the non-type of pleasure that is to say the delight taken in chaining appetites that surround the creative power is a movement towards a conjugal act closed quote from the doctor in long theology the church universal every time someone with sufficient reflection of the santa volcano delights in carl or sensual pleasure associated with someone to whom he is not married he commits a mortal sin the reason is that the delight takes over and tightens the appetites around the creative power it is a movement towards a conjugal act and that is completely reserved for the happy here is the point because I am married kissing passionately is a mortal sin why because it is passionate so I am married I have no right to deliberately provoke those types of passions whether by thought by word or in fact, those passions, those delights, those particular pleasures are strictly reserved for the married and only for the married, no one else Now, once we understand that we do not need to go through a long list, we explain what particular behaviors are correct and which is it. are wrong for singles, passionate kisses are a mortal sin because singles do not have the right to deliberately provoke that kind of passion in thought, word or action now that this topic arises and people discover that passionate kisses are a privilege of The married and mortal sin for the single are generally a number of people who are quite panicked before continuing there is a small reminder for anyone who may be in that state to be able to commit a mortal sin, you should know that it is a sin Mortal you have to know that it is very wrong so relax, I'm sure you didn't know that before your piece you are safe, but don't do it now, you know, go and don't sin anymore now that we see the problem. with passionate kisses here is the basic moral principle underlying all of this applies to thoughts words and actions all pleasure outside of marriage that is associated with creative power all that type of pleasure that is directly desired or desire intentionally acquired or permitted It is a mortal sin for singles therefore it is a mortal sin for singles to think of saying or doing anything with the intention of arousing even the slightest degree of this type of pleasure.
Previously we have already applied this principle in the case of loving glances. which we will see Go over that quickly, but keep in mind that it applies across the board, to thoughts, words or actions, okay, so we take the case of a kind that arouses lust or as an irritation of a chain of lust that is once again for that type of mirror now that time is not up, suppose this with people are not married if there is no intention in this class, say that it is accidental and there is no consent for the pleasure aroused, there is no sin, there is no intention, there is no consent, there is no superior if there is no intention, but perhaps some slight consent beforehand.
He realized what is happening and rejects this, what morality calls semi-given consent when there is venial sin, if there is no containment and full consent, it is on its way. Well, that is a mortal sin. If there is direct intention, I am going to watch this bad video. it is a mortal sin, okay, then it is easy if you remember this table, even without intention, without consent, without sin, without intention, some consent, venial sin, without intention, total consent, mortal sin, direct intention, mortal sin, so, without intention, without consent, without sin, without intention, some consent, venial sin. without intention full consent mortal sin I intend to commit this mortal sin all pleasure outside of marriage associated with the great creative power all such pleasure is reserved for marriage outside of that whether it is directly desired by the welder intentionally acquired or permitted is morally sinful is okay before We close, let's deal with some typical objections about kissing, but father, everyone does it ooh, now there's a compelling argument, try that on your mom and then go back to the priest and tell me how it works, but what if do we really like each other? another presumably you wouldn't want to passionately kiss someone you don't like but we're already engaged, all the more reason to be careful you're not married yet traditionally the honeymoon comes after marriage are you saying we can't kiss?
Not at all, of course, non-single people can kiss each other, it's not necessarily a great idea, it's certainly not necessary, but they can kiss, yes, kissing is a lot for single people, just like the kisses you would give your great-grandmother or your great-grandfather is a little kiss on the cheek, kind of like a non-passionate kiss and that's exactly what everyone who is not married can do, okay, and that's it father, no one can live like that , naturally speaking. That may be true but God never commands the impossible that is why he gives us a supernatural hell it is called sanctifying grace we avoid close occasions of sin we see our three Hail Marys three mornings and every night we see a rosary every day we go to confession every week or two and make fervent communions and you can leave like this.
Isn't that exactly what Saint Peter says? Paul is telling us in today's epistle if you live according to the flesh you will die but if by the spirit you mortify the works of the body you will live in fact we can live like this let's review today we finally consider six to nine
commandmentsyou will not commit adultery you will not covet the wife of your neighbor we have seen that the power to bring new life is a holy power and God expects us to carefully protect it with modesty pure behavior this power is God's special gift that is to be used Only by married couples and married couples have we seen that point emphasized strongly by Pius Xi who said that the so-called primary purpose of marriage is the procreation and education of children, the duty entrusted to parents is of such high dignity and of such great importance that each The use of the great creative power is a right and privilege only of married persons and must be absolutely limited within the sacred limits of the state of merit.
We have seen it to the extent that we understand and see clearly this idea that all use of that creative power is a right and a privilege only of the night, to that same extent we will be able to see and understand the reasons and ideas underlying the teaching of the church with a 69th commandment, we will be able to defend it against this culture. We have seen that for singles, passive kissing is a mortal sin simply because singles do not have the right to have that type of passion, they do not have the right to shed those passions with thought, word or action, those passions, those delights as pleasures. . are reserved strictly for the married once we understand that we can understand any other type of particular behavior and why they crave, we have seen the fundamental principle that all pleasure outside of marriage that is associated with that creative power that is directly willed or desired intentionally procured or permitted is a mortal sin we have seen if that pleasure has arisen and there was no intention or consent there is no sin there is no intention and some consent is a venial sin no intention of consent is a mortal sin or direct intention is a sin mortal, let's close how high the stakes are in this battle two bodies mortify the works of the flesh by the spirit make points for reflection see how foxes cite
sinsagainst the sixth through ninth commandments are by far the most common issues and confessions Apart from the
sinsthat fill everything with souls, since they are the most frequent and abundant confessional matters and for which the greatest number of souls fall to hell, in fact, I do not hesitate to affirm that all those who are condemned are condemned by the sins. against the six four nine commandments or at least not without them close quote second on July 13, 1917 our lady showed the three little children of Fatima a terrifying vision she opened her hands on the ground she disappeared and they found themselves on the edge of a sea of fire a fire that was filled with a large number of demons looked like black and horrible animals that were filling the air with their screams there were also a large number of damned souls that were spinning in the flames and screaming and terror and agony and they also saw souls it seemed a blizzard of snowflakes there are as many souls falling into hell assnowflakes miss storm blessed before said our lady told him that more souls go to hell because the flesh is sinned and for any other reason more souls go to hell because they sin because of the flesh and for any other reason if you live according to the flesh you will die but if by the spirit you want to destroy the works of the flesh you must
