Love and sex? Shhh! Christians don't talk or write about such things. Well God certainly did!
Hollywood has us believing that sex is a dirty topic.
Let's remember that the sexual relationship between husband and wife was the first blessing in the Bible. In Genesis 1:28 ". . . God blessed them [Adam and Eve] and said, 'Be fruitful and multiply." Woo hoo, God! Thank you for this blessing.
God instructs further in 1 Corinthians 7:3-5 "Husbands and wives should satisfy each other's sexual needs . . . Don't withhold yourselves from each other unless you agree to do so for a set time to devote yourselves to prayer. Then you should get back together. . . " What can I say?
What God meant as sacred, the world has made sleezy. What God meant as pure, the world has putrified. Linda Dillow and Lorraine Pintus said it well in their powerful book, Intimate Issues.
I think it's time for Christians to take back their bedrooms!
Dan and I teach marriage retreats. "Please teach us about sex" is the number one request received from Christian couples. Wow! That's an eye opener not to be ignored.
I fear Christians are believing the Hollywood lie and bringing that distorted and disgusting influence to their marriage bed.
