The main reason people indulge, avoid, and pervert intimacy is because man’s nature approaches life through a hedonistic lens. What is hedonism? Hedonism is the pursuit of pleasure; sensual self-indulgence; the ethical theory that pleasure (in the sense of the satisfaction of desires) is the highest good and proper aim of human life. God sent Jesus to become the Christian’s hedonistic pursuit of pleasure. This feeds man’s hedonistic nature with sacrifice, grace, peace, truth, and love.
