They are not technical goals to be achieved through goal definition, systematic planning, disciplined management, quality control, time and motion studies, etc. They are not evil temptations, forebodings of disaster, signs of danger or the beginnings of chaotic disintegration. Healthy human sexuality is neither the essence of evil, nor the primary tool of any evil power to occasion personal and communal disintegration. Healthy human sexuality is not a challenge to human ingenuity and desires to to achieve and maintain control in order to enjoy security. Healthy human sexuality is not the testing ground for human dedications to collections of prohibitions, injunctions, commandments, laws, rules, orders, etc. designed by some fearful people in efforts to achieve and maintain control, order, propriety and respectability. Whether human sexuality plays central roles in dysfunctional patterns of human behavior depends greatly in how humans regard human sexuality and how they express their sexuality. The assumptions, beliefs and attitudes which guide our approach to our sexuality play major roles in leading us into disintegrative or integrative sexual activity, and reflexive responses to sexual activity. Condemnatory judgmentalism is a disintegrative response to human sexual activity---as is any unbalanced fixation upon human sexuality and sexual activities. Human sexual desires, visions and activities are not the means to human salvation or damnation; they are gifts from God to be enjoyed with personal and communal integrity in God's presence.
