So, What Does the Bible Teach About Sex?


So, What Does the Bible Teach About Sex?

The historic Christian view according to accurate biblical interpretation is that sex outside of the sacred bonds of male-female marriage is wrong. One practical reason the Bible forbids it is because of how powerful sex is. God created sex to be a strong adhesive, bonding two fragile souls together. This is why feelings of "heartbreak" often happen when people who've engaged in sexual intercourse then go their separate ways. In God's good design, sex is reserved for a man and a woman who have entered into a legally binding marriage covenant. This kind of life-long commitment forms the basis for a garden-like relationship in which true intimacy can grow into a loving family. Multiply that same model many times over and a healthy society blossoms and thrives.
You may not agree with this view of human sexuality, but it's what the Bible teaches. If the point of this conversation is to foster better understanding, let's agree to accurately represent each other. To be a Christian, then, is to be a reasonable person who promotes wholeness, joy, and genuine love. We aren't judgmental prudes who are dead-set against anyone enjoying life. We are for human flourishing. We aren't bigots or homophobes. Such name-calling is weak, counterproductive, and it ultimately distracts from a fair consideration of the issue.
