“Sex sells and the whole world is buying.” These words come from the song “Signs” by the band Creed. So if the whole world is buying, what are they receiving?
Last Sunday, my church began a sermon series on Gospel sexuality. It is an 8-week series diving into several facets of human sexuality as they relate to God and the Bible and sin and culture. It is no small topic.
Within the topic of sex seem to be a spiderweb of related topics. Some will be drawn to the more emotional and unseen aspects of it. Others will focus on the physical, considering how to increase physical sensation and pleasure. Still others will consider the spiritual aspect of sex and how it connects with God and his designs for it.
There has been no shortage of conversations about sex on this blog. To name a few:
The pressing concern today is, what is the point of sex? How would you respond to this question? What do you believe is the point, or are the main pointS, of sex?
Additionally, how did you come to believe this is the purpose of sex? In other words, what were/are your primary influences in developing your sexual ethic? Examples could include parents, a mentor, the Bible, a Sex Ed. Teacher, books, movies, television, etc.
QUESTION: So, what do you believe is the point of sex?
