Christians and sex…

by Rod Smith

Christians ought to be the most free, most fun loving, joyful people of all, and, when married, ought to be having the very best “wall-socket” (a David Schnarch term) sex on the planet.

Surely, knowing a creative God, being engaged in a dynamic relationship with the very Giver of life, the very source of joy – ought to translate every Christian marriage into a powerhouse of sexual joy and fulfillment?

It seems to me that “sexless” and “Christian marriage” – apart from very unusual circumstances, ought to be next to impossible to find – and an oxymoron if there was ever one. While, as a therapist I know this is not the case (for sexuality has become so very soiled for so very many people) it is not unreasonable to expect that people who claim to know and serve the Living God ought to enjoy and know the best sex and most powerful relationships God and life can offer.

Since equal, mutual, and respectful sex between a husband and wife is one physical representation of the love of God, sex between married Christians is in itself one of many acts of worship – at least with as much importance as reading the Bible or attending church, feeding the poor, or having a “Quiet Time.” Good, mutual, and respectful sex is one way to get closer to God and improve the spiritual dynamic of everyday living.

  1. I’ve heard it said that a good sex life between partners is a “religious” experience of sorts. Now it all makes sense… it IS a religious experience.

    Thanks for the kind words on my blog. I certainly will keep reading. Take care– Stef

  2. I can’t say sex is a “religious” experience. Sex is boring unrewarding, very uninteresting, and lame. Married 40 years and been without sex approx 28 years, I totally enjoy being without sex, my wife disagrees but thats really not my problem.
