Al Mohler on a Challenge to Heterosexual Men

"No man, not even the most committed heterosexual husband, will be able to say on the Day of Judgement, "My sexual affections, my sexual arousal, was always from the very beginning, only directly towards that which was holy - the covenant of marriage and the wife that I was given". EVERY man struggles with a corrupted affection, and that corrupted affection, given the reality of the male sex drive is often directed towards a desire for fulfillment entirely at odds with the glory of God. Every man bears a different struggle, but every man is engaged in a sexual struggle, and this should give us an attitude of sympathy as we address homosexuals with the truth".

Al Mohler - "Homosexual Marriage as a Challenge to the Church: Biblical and Cultural Reflections" in "Sex and the Supremacy of Christ" - Justin Taylor and John Piper (editors) - Crossway Books, Illinois (2005) - (p122).
