"Another reason for sexual behavior: wounds of the soul, or abuse. It's amazing, as the statistics told us last weekend, that 1 in 3 teenage girls will be sexually abused before she hits 18, and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused before 18. Being sexually abused creates all kinds of sexual termoil in a person's life...and you'll be amazed how many people deep in sexual immorality, or even sexual deviance, go back to their childhood. Some innocent little boy or innocent little girl had a would that went soul deep that never got addressed, that never got healed. Talk about hurting people hurting people, and people wounded soul deep often are the ones who try to pacify that wound with the very thing that caused it."

I, along with some of the people I've spoken with, had trouble understanding this enigma. The excerpt above is from a group I attended Sunday. If you're in my boat, I hope it clears things up for you like it did for me.
