Various Varieties of Vacuums

A scientist's wife once confronted him for not helping out more around the house. "Dear, you need to lend me a hand at home, I'm getting overwhelmed. "I would, honey, but by nature I abhor vacuuming." She wasn't amused, and if you don't get that joke it has to do with the old adage from science: nature abhors a vaccuum. In fact it(nature)always rushes in some way to fill that empty place. The philosopher Joseph John Rickaby had his own philosophical version of that law: nature abhors promiscuity (because of the disease, depression and despair that characteristically follow it). The two statements aren't as dissimilar as we might think. Sexual promiscuity typically translates into a kind of emotional and relational emptiness of its own which is often filled desperately with more and more of the same behavior which only deepens that emptiness, making it more difficult to escape the vicious cycle that results. It's not that our Creator begrudges us the pleasure of sexuality. (The Creator, in fact, invented it!) On the contrary, it is intended for our enjoyment and for the sealing of our fellowship, but within the marital bounds wisely set for it.
