- We often talk about the Bible’s teaching on sex and sexuality in purely negative terms. Let’s talk about the positive: What did God create sex for? What does “wholeness” in this area of life look like?
- Is this passage’s emphasis on the importance of our bodies new or strange to you? How does this relate to what the Bible teaches us about sexual sin?
Woven into the fabric of Christian theology is the insistence that Jesus Christ is the truest, most perfect, most glorious human being who has ever lived—and that those who want to experience true, full, rich humanness must become like him, must pattern their lives after Jesus’ humanity.
The monstrosity of sexual intercourse outside of marriage is that those who indulge in it are trying to isolate one kind of union (the sexual) from all the other kids of union which were intended to go along with it and make up the total union. The Christian attitude does not mean that there is anything wrong about sexual pleasure, any more than about the pleasure of eating. It means that you must not isolate that pleasure and try to get it by itself, any more than you ought to try to get the pleasure of taste without swallowing and digesting, by chewing things and spitting them out again.
I am far more than my sexuality.
