Immature sexual views are rampant among the religious. One of the worst is that sex is only for marriage. That ignores the fact of how important sex ought to be in a relationship. It need not be the most important connection between a couple – and that will vary, I suspect with most preferring a close emotional relation first – but it is plainly silly to claim that it isn’t an important enough aspect for couples to physically explore before making a commitment as legally serious as marriage. It’s fortunate that more and more people are moving from this childish point of view, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t others who hold immature views on sexuality.
As I said, sometimes sex is just sex; it’s what you do when you are married. Just like cleaning the toilet is what you do to keep your house clean…and I bet you don’t have this great desire or huge emotional connection to scrubbing the porcelain! You do it because it needs to be done and that’s the way it is with married sex… it does need to be done! It’s the glue that God gave us to bond us to one another. The bible is very clear that it is your responsibility as a spouse.
Got that? The Bible says that even if sex is like scrubbing a toilet, you ought to do it. Life isn’t about being fulfilled; it’s all about the procreation. Even though the only procreation allowed must occur under specific guidelines.
Totally makes sense.
