The prostate, a sex gland

The prostate, a sex gland found only in men, is located inside

the lower abdomen at the base of the penis, below the bladder, and in front of the rectum. The word prostate comes from

the Greek word protestant, meaning standing in front of. The

prostate gland is a small organ about the size of a chestnut. The

urethra, the channel that carries urine from the bladder and

through the penis, runs through the prostate. The prostate gland is

one of the body parts that most men rarely think about; that is, until they begin to have problems. The prostate gland’s primary function is to secrete fluid and vital nutrients and semen,

the milky ejaculate that nourishes sperm, which is produced by

the testicles. The sperm travels up from the testicles through

long tubes called the vas deferens.

The prostate is located below the bladder and surrounds the

During orgasm, the prostate fluid mixes with fluid from the

seminal vesicles on each side of the prostate. One specific

the function of the prostatic fluid is to regulate the acidity of semen as

it travels through the acidic environment of the female reproductive

tract. Particular muscles squeeze the liquid into the urethra, carrying sperm through the penis during orgasm. To make sure

semen doesn’t move in the wrong direction and back up into the

bladder, a ring of muscle at the neck of the bladder (the internal

sphincter) remains tightened during ejaculation.

The prostate wraps entirely around the urethra, the tube that

empties urine from the bladder through the penis; it is in a position

that leads to difficulties later in life. In newborns, the prostate is about

the size of a pea. It continues to grow until about age twenty, when it

reaches the regular adult size of a walnut. Researchers suggest

that it remains that size until, on average, age forty-five, when

it begins to grow again as testosterone levels start to decline.

The prostate veins drain toward the heart via connections

along the spine. Lymph, a watery fluid found in all tissues, flows

away from the prostate via innovative channels (lymphatic) to lymph

nodes, which filter out bacteria, viruses, and other impurities,

as well as cancer cells, before the lymph flows further upstream

toward veins that eventually empty into the heart. This would

suggest that if there are physical or other problems with the

operation, with the lymphatic system, infection or disease could

be the result. The prostate is part of the urinary and reproductive

system; some health professionals believe it is not a vital organ,

but from my experience, it is. All organs are essential to the

efficient operation of the mind and body; because a person can live

without a specific organ doesn’t mean it should be taken out.

Bible verses for today’s meditation and inspiration: Matthew E. McLaren

Suppose you find fifty righteous people living there in the city—will you still sweep it away and not spare it for their sakes? (Genesis 18:24) And the Lord replied, “If I find fifty righteous people in Sodom, I will spare the entire city for their sake.” (Genesis 18:26)

And be sure to say, ‘Look, your servant Jacob is right behind us.’” Jacob thought, “I will try to appease him by sending gifts ahead of me. When I see him in person, perhaps he will be friendly to me.” (Genesis 32:20)
to say to you: ‘Please forgive your brothers for the great wrong they did to you—for their sin in treating you so cruelly.’ So we, the servants of the God of your father, beg you to forgive our sin.” When Joseph received the message, he broke down and wept. (Genesis 50:17)

“Forgive my sin, just this once, and plead with the Lord your God to take away this death from me.” (Exodus 10:17)

Moses Intercedes for Israel The next day Moses said to the people, “You have committed a terrible sin, but I will go back up to the Lord on the mountain. Perhaps I will be able to obtain forgiveness for your sin.” (Exodus 32:30) So Moses returned to the Lord and said, “Oh, what a terrible sin these people have committed. They have made gods of gold for themselves. (Exodus 32:31) But now, if you will only forgive their sin—but if not, erase my name from the record you have written!” (Exodus 32:32)

The Lord passed in front of Moses, calling out, “Yahweh! The Lord! The God of compassion and mercy! I am slow to anger and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness. (Exodus 34:6) I lavish unfailing love to a thousand generations. I forgive iniquity, rebellion, and sin. But I do not excuse the guilty. I lay the sins of the parents upon their children and grandchildren; the entire family is affected— even children in the third and fourth generations.” (Exodus 34:7)

And he said, “O Lord, if it is true that I have found favor with you, then please travel with us. Yes, this is a stubborn and rebellious people, but please forgive our iniquity and our sins. Claim us as your own special possession.” (Exodus 34:9)
just as he does with the bull offered as a sin offering for the high priest. Through this process, the priest will purify the people, making them right with the Lord, and they will be forgiven. (Leviticus 4:20) Then he must burn all the goat’s fat on the altar, just as he does with the peace offering.

Through this process, the priest will purify the people, making them right with the Lord, and they will be forgiven. (Leviticus 4:31) Then he must remove all the sheep’s fat, just as he does with the fat of a sheep presented as a peace offering. He will burn the fat on the altar on top of the special gifts presented to the Lord. Through this process, the priest will purify the people from their sin, making them right with the Lord, and they will be forgiven. (Leviticus 4:35)

The priest will then prepare the second bird as a burnt offering, following all the procedures that have been prescribed. Through this process the priest will purify you from your sin, making you right with the Lord, and you will be forgiven. (Leviticus 5:10) Through this process, the priest will purify those who are guilty of any of these sins, making them right with the Lord, and they will be forgiven. The rest of the flour will belong to the priest, just as with the grain offering.” (Leviticus 5:13)
