Sex and Scripture

A Biblical Study of Proper Sexual Behavior

by John W. Schoenheit

Book Image Not Available
Overview
It is not an exaggeration to say that there is no single subject that influences people as profoundly as sex. It takes up our thought life, dominates our dream life, and fills our fantasies. It has been the grand subject of literature, past and present, and now is the grand subject of our TV shows and movies as well. Hundreds of monthly magazines and thousands of books seem to cover every angle of sex and sexuality. It has been the subject of countless studies: What do women want? What turns them on? What do men like? How can you keep one? The list of questions goes on and on about women, men, singles, dating, relationships, married couples, and oh so much more.
Description
It is not an exaggeration to say that there is no single subject that influences people as profoundly as sex. It takes up our thought life, dominates our dream life, and fills our fantasies. It has been the grand subject of literature, past and present, and now is the grand subject of our TV shows and movies as well. Hundreds of monthly magazines and thousands of books seem to cover every angle of sex and sexuality. It has been the subject of countless studies: What do women want? What turns them on? What do men like? How can you keep one? The list of questions goes on and on about women, men, singles, dating, relationships, married couples, and oh so much more. Interestingly, in a society where there seems to be so much honest talk and openness about sex (indeed, nothing is concealed anymore), most people’s sexual relationships are less than fulfilling. The statistics indicate that the vast majority of men and women in the United States are doomed to a life of sexual frustration and failed relationships. But does that have to be the case? No, it does not. God created mankind and in His wisdom, He gave us a book with clear commandments and guidelines about how to live our lives as the sexual beings that we are. That book is the Bible. The Bible speaks volumes about proper and improper sexual behavior. God wants people to have wonderful and fulfilling relationships. Few things have the ability to wreck a life as quickly and completely as sexuality and sexual relationships gone awry. No wonder then that the Bible has so much to say about sex and sexual behavior—as always, our loving heavenly Father shows us the right path to walk to be able to live a blessed and fulfilled life. Modern studies are uncovering facts about sexual relationships that the Bible has espoused for millennia. Too bad that the studies often involve real people who are cut and scarred from broken promises, busted relationships and lost love, much of which could have been avoided if the words in the Bible had been known and followed. Sex and Scripture covers, in clear everyday language, what the Bible says about sexual subjects. Topics covered include abstinence, marriage, adultery, prostitution, homosexuality, lust, pornography, masturbation, and boundaries in relationships. The Bible has answers for mankind’s questions and promises God’s blessings for those who seek, find, and obey.
