Biblical Sexuality & Freedom

Have been studying biblical sexuality for the Family Matters class on Sunday.

One of the interesting contrasts is the incredible amount of sexual freedom in marriage (read Song of Solomon) - and the total lack of sexual freedom outside of marriage.

God is very clear that He set up sexuality for both procreation and recreation - His descriptions in the Song are quite graphic, even provocative - but when we take sex outside of marriage, we offend Him, hurt others and eventually destroy ourselves.

Much like life! Our freedom operates best within obedience (Galatians 5:13), an interesting paradox.

Well, this should be an interesting class - I'll see you on Sunday morning. I was out of town last week-end so I'm behind again.
