New figures reveal a sharp rise in the number of gonorrhoea cases in England last year with a 26% increase on the previous year.
The figures relaesed by Public Health England reveal the shocking conquences of promiscuity in England. The rise of 26% in gonorrhoea cases in just a year is by far the largest growth of any sexually transmitted infection (STI) with a 10% increase in cases of syphilis and chlamydia cases increaing by 5% compared with 2018.
Sharp Rise Overall
The figures are set within a shrap rise of 5% across all sexually transmitted infections. The highest rates of diagnoses are in the 15-24 age group. Gay men and straight women saw the largest increases of gonorrhoea, giving more evidence that straight men are less promisciuous than their female and gay male counterparts. The highest rates of STIs continue to be seen in gay men where it is widely accepted that much of the gay community are highly promiscuous with many men having multiple sexual partners as they seek to find contentment.
Moral Decline Since 1960s
Sexually transmitted infections have risen sharply since the 1960s when promiscuity became widespread and love was recued to lust. Since then, the increasing nature of our hgiuhly sexualised society with sex appearing everywhere has led to a crisis of marriage, broken families and millions of pre born children sacrificed on the altar of convenience. These figures reveal a growing public health emergency. We urgently need to address this by pointing the way to abstinence before marriage, to the importance of sex within the context of love wihtin marriage and an end to the cheapening of pregnancy where one in five pregnancies now end in abortion.
Whilst it is true that higher case numbers are a reuslt of increased and more agressive testing regimes, such tests would not be necessary if people were not sleeping around with multiple casual sexual partners.
Heart Change Needed
Ultimately, a change in attitudes can only come with a change in hearts. People are sleeping around and taking such risks because they are desparate to fill the God shaped gap in their hearts. Humans desire intimacy and need contentment. Ultimately, that can only be found in Jesus Christ and this is what we must teach young people today.
When we pray for God to heal this land, we are praying for more than mere healing from illness and ailment. We are praying for deep spiritual healing, we are praying for hearts to be changed, for minds to be turned to Jesus and for lives to be saved.
The greatrest tragedy in almost all of these cases of sexually transmitted infections is they are totally avoidable. Greater still is the blind eye so many turn to this public and spiritual health emergency.
