Q: Run that by me one more time. You think sex outside marriage is not big deal?
A: It's not the big deal you make it out to be. One person for life? Please!

Q: So you're saying we're just animals - a pack of dogs on rage? You're saying saying we can't possibly control our hormones, so we should just do whatever we want?
A: Hey, I'm not saying people should sleep around just for the fun of it.

Q: But you're saying it's OK for people to have ten or twenty partners over the course of a lifetime?
A: Over fifty or more? Sure why not?

Q: But doesn't staying true to one person build character?
A: They say cancer builds character, too. But that doesn't mean I want the disease.

Q: Don't you think it's important to learn self-control?
A: I don't know why?

Q: Because last time I checked, life doesn't always have what we want when we want it. Sometimes we have to curb our desires for the sake of other people.
A: OK, but what's your point?

Q: My point is, I think you have a shallow mindset and perspective of sex. You seem to think it's something people do for recreation. You're talking more about lust - a few minutes physical pleasure. It's like sex has no deep meaning for you. And I think that's sad.
A: Really?

Q: Yeah, because to me, sex is going to be this amazing bond - not just physical, but emotional and spiritual, too. One day my wife and I will join not just our bodies, but our souls. I'm talking about a whole lifetime together versus a bunch of one-night stands, broken hearts and ruined lives.



Genesis 2:24 describes love, sex and marriage as they were originally intended: " A man will leave his father and mother and be untied to his wife, and they will become one flesh." Pretty simple, and straightforward right?

Centuries later, Jesus quoted this verse and added, " So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate" ~Matthew 19:6

Sex is meant to be a symbol of the complete union- physical, spiritual and emotional- of one man and one woman.

According to Jesus, that glorious linking is intended to last a lifetime.

Sex no big deal?
