Only the text that does not appear in italics within this post was produced by Pastor Keller.

The “sex spirit.” This is the spirit that is responsible for fornication,
adultery, lust, homosexuality, and every other sexual sin. After all, we
know there has to be some reason so many people commit sexual sin and the
“sex spirit” is the answer. Since sexual sin is something almost everyone
fights at some point in their life, I should actually write a book about the
“sex spirit.” It would sell millions of copies worldwide to people who are
Christians as well as to those who are not. It would actually be a best
seller in the homosexual community and to others who have rejected God’s
plan for sex since it would explain their actions. I could actually take a
few verses here and a few verses there to even make a Biblical case for the
“sex spirit.”

However, there is only one small problem, THERE IS NO SUCH THING!!! I am
sorry to have to tell you this, but there is NO “sex spirit.” It doesn’t
exist. Oh trust me, I know people want it to exist. They want something to
blame their sinful behavior on and blaming it on a “sex spirit” would be
perfect. You see, if there really was a “sex spirit,” then you don’t have to
take responsibility for YOUR CHOICES since it wasn’t you, it was the “sex
spirit” that made you do it.

When you read the Bible cover to cover, one of the things you understand is
that the Bible is a book of personal responsibility. We are personally
responsible for the choices we make in our life. Blaming someone or
something else doesn’t work! Ever since man committed the very first sin in
the Garden of Eden, he has been trying to blame his sin on someone or
something else. Look at Adam. When confronted with his sin by God what did
he do? HE BLAMED GOD AND EVE!!! Like I say so often, we have not changed one
bit since the Garden. But God was not interested in Adam’s excuse and God is
not interested in your excuse either.

I’m not sure if you noticed lately, but God is one smart guy. You see, God
gave us something called “free will.” Free will means we are NOT
pre-programmed robots, but have the ability to make our own choices
throughout our life. The upside to this is that we can choose to do whatever
we want. If you want to be an Adolph Hitler and commit your life to
destroying lives and killing millions of people, you can do it. If you want
to be a Billy Graham and commit your life to preaching the Gospel to the
world and be used by God to bring millions to know Christ as their Savior,
you can do it. Free will means you have the ability to choose to do whatever
you want.

Because God gave man free will, it also means that we are PERSONALLY
RESPONSIBLE for the choices that we make. Now I understand in today’s
society accepting personal responsibility is not popular. We have to always
find a “reason” why people do the things they do. Children that are
hyperactive, have way too much energy, who act like children should are now
told they have ADD or ADHD. While in a percentage of cases there may be a
medical issue that exists, in most cases it is simply an excuse for children
that have not been properly disciplined or are simply just being kids.

No place do we see people making excuses for their choices more than in the
criminal justice system. It is the job of well paid defense lawyers to dream
up excuses to explain away a person’s criminal actions. They have come up
with every reason you can imagine to explain why a person who committed a
crime was not really responsible for their actions. This mentality has
permeated to every part of our society, and finding reasons to explain why
people are not responsible for the choices they make has become an art.

Let me make sure you understand, this may work in the world in which we
live, but it doesn’t work with God. God has given us free will to make our
own choices, but along with that freedom, comes the responsibility for
whatever choices we make. God is not interested in your excuse why you
sinned, only in you taking responsibility for that sin. He has even given us
a wonderful promise in 1 John 1:9 that tells us, if we will confess our
sins, take personal responsibility for our sins, He will not only forgive us
but cleanse us from all unrighteousness. All God wants us to do is to be
honest, not make excuses, and take personal responsibility for the choices
we make.

I love you and care about you so much. I am sorry that there is no “sex
spirit,” or anything else you can blame for sin in that area. God has given
us the choice to either obey Him, or disobey Him. When we choose to disobey
Him, it was not another person, a “spirit,” or anything else we can blame.
It was OUR CHOICE. I will be praying for you today, praying that you will
realize that you have got to be responsible for whatever choices you make in
this life. You, and you alone made those choices, and you, and you alone
have to be responsible for the choices you make.

This is why the moment we die and stand before God, there is only one
question He is going to ask us. It is not what day of the week we went to
church. It is not the name of the building we choose to worship Him in. It
is not how successful you may have been in this life. No my friend, the only
question God is going to ask you is, “Do you have a personal relationship by
faith with my Son Jesus.” You either do, or you don’t. If you do, God will
welcome you into His presence for eternity. If you don’t, you will be
eternally separated from God your Creator. Period.

If you don’t, God is NOT going to be interested in any of your excuses. “Jim
and Tammy had an air conditioned dog house.” The pastor in my church ran off
with the choir director.” “Somebody was mean to me at church.” “Christians
are hypocrites.” “I don’t like Bill Keller.” “All they care about is money.”
” I was a good person.” “The Bible was written by mere men.” “My dog ate my
homework.” No, God is not going to be interested in hearing any of your
excuses for why you rejected Jesus Christ as your Savior. That is a personal
decision each person must make in this life, and each person will be held
responsible by God for eternity for that decision.

If you have not made the decision to accept Christ into your heart and life
by faith, the Bible says that TODAY is the day of salvation. I would invite
you to go to,  http://www.liveprayer.com/bdy_salvatn.cfm  . Pray to ask God
to open your heart, read the words, pray the prayer, and accept today God’s
gift to you of everlasting life through His son Jesus Christ.

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller

    Mr. Bill Keller, let me first say your devotional is well written. However, the content of the matter frankly is only PARTIALLY right. To say that evil spirits do not contribute to ones’ behavior is wrong. Even the bible tell us that we don’t battle with flesh and blood, but against spirits and principalities (Eph. 6:12). Every sin we struggle with has spiritual ramifications. And there is no way a person can overcome any sin without realizing that. Yes we all have free will, but if you don’t know you have it how can you exercise it. The evil spirits keep the truth away from them so they don’t know they have free will over particular sins. This it for now, waiting for your response so I cn help you understand more…

  2. Marcus: Oh, Bill Keller does not participate on this weblog. I post his devotionals, as well as those of several others. However, he is pretty good at answering emails, and generally does so in a quick fashion. So why not drop him a line at bkeller@liveprayer.com? Incidentally, if you have read any of the things that I myself have written on the matter, you would know that I personally agree with you.

    I want to say that your full of it. So sex is only for having babies or is sex only for a man and woman.Or is sex only for husband and wife. I wouldn’t be surprised if some evil christian made aids and passed it off as a cure for homo’s but it got out of hand. Your faith and all your teachings are contrary to the human experience. Adultery is defined in the bible as a man sleeping with another mans wife. According to your great text I can go and sleep with prostitutes and not commit sin. Your messiah is false and made of other pagen religions. You dismiss your on sins and the ones of this great christian country. America killed the natives living here “manifest destiny” brought slaves to the country “it teaches you how to own your slaves in the bible” dropped the most horrific weapon ever know to man (twice) And all these folks were christians or some form of it. As a matter of fact this great christian nation is responsible for most of the worlds misery in the last 400 years. I don
    t believe in your bible because you don’t.

    sleep with prostitutes?not a sin???in the bible jesus stated that those women would find damnation if they have not changed their ways.
    what text are you reading????also christan and catholic are far from pagans. Miserey ws not caused by these religions, it was the choice of man and man alone. blaming terrorists so u can have a war is just as bad as saying religion is to blame for problems on this earth. its all people and their free will. take responisiblity for your actions and quit blaming people who believe in god. non believers are scared to accept the fact that there is a higer power, and chose that they should have control over their life.
    and yes for the hunderth time being a homo or lesbian is a mortal sin!!
