Sex is very satisfying. Participated in within the realm of marriage, God is honored as two people are mutually satisfied. The right kind of drug can be used in a good way to lessen physical pain and bring relief – even a good night’s rest. Social networking can take you to places in the world you’ve never seen and help you reconnect with old friends.

The person you usually lead to Christ is not just your brother or sister now; he or she is your brother or sister forever. Enjoyment that lasts for eternity is immeasurably greater than enjoyment that lasts for an hour, a day, a month, or even years.
