Christians and Sex
I disagree with this psychologist, but if he or she is right, then I am sad that the world view of sex has entered the Christian bedroom.
Hollywood did not invent sex. God did.
Hear what God says: "The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. The wife's body does not belong to her alone but also to her husband. In the same way, the husband's body does not belong to him alone but also to his wife. Do not deprive each other except by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again...." 1 Cor 7:3-6 (NIV)
Here the apostle Paul instructs married couples to pray together after making love. Then after prayer, go back to making love!
Woo Hoo, God! His intent is clear. Intimacy with our spouse is a physical and a spiritual blessing from Him. One that an atheist knows little about.
What are your thoughts?
Portions of this blog were taken from my book, Splashes of Serenity: Bathtime Reflections for Drained Wives. Ten percent of this book deals with sexual intimacy. It's obviously a Hot Topic!
May there be Splashes of Serenity in your marriage today!
