measuring his time that he thinks about sex and the time that he thinks about Christ, His Word, and/or fulfilling Christ’s Great Commission? It may be possible.
Different studies have told us different things about a man’s sex drive. Some more accurate than others and some not accurate at all. In any case, for example:
The Kinsey Institute at Indiana University suggests that 54 per cent of men think about sex at least every day, 43 per cent think about it a few times a week or month, and 4 per cent once a month or less. All men are different, though; some, Waterman says, will think about sex many times daily
I have to ponder, what would it mean for the spiritual life of a man, his family, his spiritual family (church), and his community if he were to think about Christ and his command to fulfill the Great Commission in all of his spheres of life as much as he did about sexual fulfillment? What would it mean if a man were as consumed for the goal of making disciples as he was about sexual fulfillment (although creating children would indeed be one way to raise up disciples)?

If our drive for Christ, his word, and the Great Commission was near or equal or even above our sexual drives it seems like we would have a guage to go by.

Or at least our goal is for it to be in balance to other desires that we have.
Regardless of if it can be "scientifically measured" I can not help but to think that if 54% of men thought about Christ, his Word, and a way to fulfill the Great Commission once every day, and 43% thought about Christ, his Word, and a way to fulfill it a few times a week that we might alter the life of our family, church, and community for the good. Surely it could not hurt and c…
