Sex from a Christian perspective.

What is sex?
What is sex?

The biblical purpose of sex is multifaceted. God has given sex to us as a means of glorifying Him as we fulfill its design for procreation, intimacy, comfort, and physical pleasure. It is a fulfillment of God's created order in marriage between a husband and wife.

Procreation

Gen. 1:28, "And God blessed them; and God said to them, 'Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.'"

Intimacy

Song of Solomon 1:13, "My beloved is to me a pouch of myrrh which lies all night between my breasts."

Song 2:3, "Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest, so is my beloved among the young men. In his shade I took great delight and sat down, and his fruit was sweet to my taste."

Song 2:6, "Let his left hand be under my head and his right hand embrace me."

Song 4:5, "Your two breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle, which feed among the lilies."

Companionship

Song 3:1, "On my bed night after night I sought him whom my soul loves..."

Physical Pleasure

Song 1:2, "May he kiss me with the kisses of his mouth! For your love is better than wine."

The sexual relation is only properly expressed in marriage between a husband and wife (1 Cor. 7:2-3). Any sexual contact between unmarried people is sinful since it violates God's design.

Sex from a Christian perspective.

Sex isn't an ordinary thing or something just for pleasure. Sex is a soul tie. A soul tie is a spiritual bond that can happen In many ways.. But I'm going to talk about sex. Anytime you hook up, you're joining to that person physically, emotionally and spiritually. When you hook up with someone y'all are 1 not ✌🏾 but 👆🏾 (Mark 10:6-8) and when any of us have sexual intercourse, we have a huge outpouring of dopamine into our brains. It is released when a couple has sex, which makes them want to repeat the sexual act which then allows them to get pregnant and have babies. But for the unmarried kid it makes him want to repeat that sexual act again and again. It is the same hormone that is secreted with addiction to drugs and nicotine.

And when two people have sex, oxytocin is released, which helps bond the relationship

Sex from a Christian perspective.

And when it is released during orgasm, it

begins creating an emotional bond - the more sex, the greater the bond. But if you have sex outside of marriage or you constantly have sex with different people.. That's a problem... because you're giving a piece of yourself to everyone and if you do not find a way to break that soul tie.. You're going to have a problem connecting with your soul mate.

Sex from a Christian perspective.

To summerize this. Sex is a soul tie and is something God created for husband and wife. And once you hook up with someone you are one with him/her. So to keep it short. Wait till marriage guys... Do not be deceived by what society tells you. Sex is a something serious but this generation makes it seem like it's something just for pleasure and unimportant but it's far from that... It's not easy but still, Trust in God's timing and be strong 💪🏾

    Very good.
    Just want to add a one thing, which I hope doesn't detract.

    In marriage,...
    The husband and wife should aim to please the other.

    I Corinthians 7:3-5
    The husband must fulfill his duty to his wife, and likewise also the wife to her husband. 4 The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does; and likewise also the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. 5 Stop depriving one another, except by agreement for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer, and come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
    Is this still revelant?

    The problem is, marriage is an absolute raw deal for men. Men stand to lose everything from divorce. Not to mention, laws such as the duluth model (which is used in all 50 states) pretty much criminalize men that end up in abusive relationships. So if they end up getting married, and the woman abuses them, the man will be treated as the aggressor. And if a divorce happens, the man will lose everything.

    I've heard story after story of men losing everything after marriage.
    • Sweetener_

      In my humble opinion, I believe it all depends on the partner you married and for how long you knew them before you married them.
      For example, there are people who move in with their partner before marriage and according to some research those people are most likely to get a divorce.
      Another reason divorce is very common is because people don't put God in the center of the relationship, or they're unequally yoked.
      People nowadays do not take marriage seriously... It's sad

      Thank you so much for sharing your opinion 💞

    • Hunter7754

      You're welcome, thanks for being receptive.

      But what about situations in which the man marries a woman and she becomes abusive during the marriage? There are a lot of cases where the wife becomes abusive during marriage and very controlling and because of anti-male legislation such as the duluth model, men that are abused will just get treated as the aggressor. And like I said earlier, if a divorce happens, even if he's in the right, she can get his house, his car, everything.

      Putting that into perspective can you see why many men are hesitant to marry?

    Sex from a Christian perspective is still better than all other abrahamic religions. While it is a little restrictive... it's not as bad as other religions.

      I dunno man. That Catholic guilt runs deep. No birth control. No masturbation. Sex is ONLY for procreation.

    • Sweetener_

      @Jpipes Although children are a natural result of sexual intercourse between a husband and wife and are called “a gift of the LORD” (Psalms 127:3)
      the Bible does not prohibit sexual relations within marriage purely for pleasure. Indeed, it encourages such union.
      Genesis 2:24 says, “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh [have sex].” Proverbs 5:15-19 encourages couples to enjoy sexual pleasure together within marriage. Paul says that husbands and wives should render the sexual affection due each other—refraining only during times set aside for prayer and fasting (1 Corinthians 7:3-5).

      No passage in the Bible forbids husbands and wives from having sex for pleasure when not trying to conceive children.

      I mean we can sit here and argue the validity of a book written by white dudes in the 1500s. But most Catholics including the Pope believe birth control is a sin. Catholic missionaries are not permitted to distribute condoms even in countries where a fairly large percentage of the adult population has HIV. They point to the fable of Onan. He spilt his seed on the ground (either through masturbating or using the pull out method). Hell onanism is what doctors called masturbation when they still thought rubbing one out would make you deaf, dumb, and blind.

      I just can NOT place my "faith" in a book that advocates genocide and slavery... especially when it pertains to questions of human sexuality.

  • Nobody cares what the Christian view is. Stop making a big deal out of it. Sex is sex.

      You cared enough to comment, when you should've kept scrolling.
      Sex is not "just sex" but if you want to go around and give a piece of yourself to every lady with a vagina then go ahead, but don't go around shaming people who want to live dignified lives. Thanks for sharing your opinion and have a nice day 💞

    • I didn't read though so don't start with that.

      I don't shame people for their decisions on sex, I shame people who think they're better than everyone else because they refuse it. Get off the high horse.

    What about gay sex? Since I don't feel any connection or pleasure when being with a man (and by the way I'm an adult and I can differentiate between "haven't met the right person yet" and "just gay")
    • Sweetener_

      Concerning homosexuality: This once brought hell out of heaven on Sodom. Homosexuality is a sin 😅 from the beginning it was a male and a female and the Bible says they shall become one. You need a female and a male to reproduce because that was God's purpose for sex...
      1 Corinthians 6:9-10 “Don’t you know that the unrighteous will not inherit God’s kingdom? Do not be deceived: No sexually immoral people, idolaters, adulterers, or anyone practicing homosexuality, no thieves, greedy people, drunkards, verbally abusive people, or swindlers will inherit God’s kingdom.”

      If you are someone who is presently practicing homosexuality or if you are struggling with these desires Jesus says, “Come to me.” He wants you to experience Him. You are greatly loved by Christ and you were made for so much more. God wants you to have a deeper understanding of the sufficiency of His grace. According to John 6:35 with the bread that He offers, you shall never hunger. With the water that He gives you, you will never thirst. Jesus is the Creator of life and He knows how to truly satisfy our soul. It’s a liberating feeling to know that God knows us intimately. In Christ there is satisfaction, forgiveness, and the power to have triumph over this.

      And if you are struggling with same-sex desires know that God’s grace is so profound. In Christ you have ultimate eternal satisfaction. In Christ there is victory over the distortion of worship. If you are someone who is not a Christian and you identify as a homosexual my hope is that you see the marvelous beauty of the gospel of Christ. Jesus in His love for you lived the life that you and I couldn’t. He bore your sins, your burdens, your struggles, and your feelings of inadequacy. He took it upon Himself dying the death that we deserve so that we could be reconciled to the Father and experience such great love and forgiveness. On the cross a great price was paid and because of that we turn from idols and turn to Him in true worship.

      But people are born gay and it has been proven from times to times that sexual orientation (gay/straight/bi/pan...) cannot be changed. and by the way if you believe that God creates mankind, would you say he made a mistake when he creates gay people (because again, it has been proven that sexuality can't be changed and straight is not the default). And plus the world is overpopulated which leads to poverty, low quality of life and hunger, would you say it's his purpose to create more and more babies in countries where poverty is an issue so that babies can die due to lack of healthcare?

    • Sweetener_

      There are many scientific proofs that people aren't born gay. This is a very controversial issue. But God doesn't make mistakes (Psalms 18:30) But I personally don't believe that God brings someone in the world with a sin he finds an "abomination"
      1. Leviticus 18:22-24 “You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination. Also you shall not have intercourse with any animal to be defiled with it, nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it; it is a perversion. Do not defile yourselves by any of these things; for by all these the nations which I am casting out before you have become defiled.”

      But still some may say they were born this way, this is why Jesus says you must be BORN AGAIN.

      John 3:3
      Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

      John 3:3-8 (KJV) Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
      Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
      Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
      That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
      Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
      The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

      1 Peter 1:23 (KJV) Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
