What is the Meaning of Sex? by Denny Burk
In the Bible, the Song of Soloman is a love story. Yes, it does talk about sex, but it is in the context of a MARRIED couple blessed by God. The Bible gives specific instructions on sex between a man and his wife in 1 Corinthians 7:5.
The NLT (New Living Translation says it this way:"Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency." (KJV)
It goes on to say that if a person can't control their sexual urges, it is better that they marry than for them to 'burn'.Do not deprive each other of sexual relations, unless you both agree to refrain from sexual intimacy for a limited time so you can give yourselves more completely to prayer. Afterward, you should come together again so that Satan won’t be able to tempt you because of your lack of self-control. (NLT)
But I wish everyone were single, just as I am. Yet each person has a special gift from God, of one kind or another. So I say to those who aren’t married and to widows—it’s better to stay unmarried, just as I am. But if they can’t control themselves, they should go ahead and marry. It’s better to marry than to burn with lust.
|This book will not be published until October 31st, 2013 but I am pretty sure it will be on amazon.com when it is published. The only problem I had with this book was that there were several grammatical errors like missing letters, almost as if the keys weren't functioning when it was typed. Hopefully, by the time it is published, those errors will have been fixed.|
