It’s commonly believed that God and Christianity are anti-sex. It’s actually quite the opposite under the correct confines. Within the marriage covenant, sex is not only permitted but it is celebrated and encouraged! From the foundations of the earth, God ordained the marriage covenant between man and woman to protect us from the negative effects of sexual immorality and giving ourselves to multiple people. It is a beautiful and holy thing that has been tainted by our modern way of thinking, which has been largely fueled by society. God is a good Father that is not trying to withhold our “pleasure” and “fun” from us; He is protecting us from abusing pleasure and fun. Would you feed your child candy or ice cream every night for dinner because they really wanted it? No. Why? Because you know the negative effects and what’s good for them even if they don’t see it yet. Sex is God’s creation. It’s one way that husbands and wives grow in intimacy. Why would He be against what He created to be enjoyed under His boundaries?
“Drink water from your own cistern, flowing water from your own well. Should your springs be scattered abroad, streams of water in the streets? Let them be for yourself alone, and not for strangers with you. Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice in the wife of your youth, a lovely deer, a graceful doe. Let her breasts fill you at all times with delight; be intoxicated always in her love.” (Proverbs 5:15-19)
“Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.” (Hebrews 13:4)
