What the Bible says about Sensual Stimulation
(From Forerunner Commentary)

Numbers 11:18

How quickly they forgot! They were slaves in Egypt. They may have had a variety of food, but they were slaves. Was that a good trade-off? Would we rather be free or have good food? If we take the food, we fall into the same category as Esau. What do we want—the sensual stimulation that the world can provide or eternal life? It comes down to questions like that. What do we want? Are we going to crave it, or are we going to follow God?

Passover and I Corinthians 10

Numbers 11:20

To govern these people was a tremendous burden for Moses because they were not free of their slave mentality. They still thought like slaves. They kept rebelling to the extent that they yearned to go back to the bondage that they had yearned to come out of just a short time before.

Interestingly, the problem on the surface had to do with their diet, but it was not the real problem. As God presents it, the conflict was over what to them was a plain and bland diet as compared to the rich and stimulating diet to which they were accustomed in Egypt. They wanted to be stimulated, but they did not realize—because they were still thinking like slaves—that their tastes were entirely perverted, even their tastes in food. In despising the Lord, they were actually accusing Him—the One who made them—of not knowing what they needed to face the rigors of life in the wilderness.
