I read a very interesting post on which I am going to reserve judgment for the sake of some discussion. Really, I want to know what you think.
The author makes the argument that there is very little spoken about sex in the Bible. Well, very little compared to the amount of “counter” sex education that evangelicals are used to. He says, “We live in a sex-obsessed culture, to be sure. But the evangelical culture I grew up in was equally obsessed. The way I grew up, you’d think that at least 30 percent of the Bible is about sex. Turns out it’s more like 0.3 percent. And what it does say hardly gives us a one-two-three model for relationships.”
He wants to demystify sex so that it is not that big of a deal. His proposal seems to suggest that we lighten up on the idea that premarital sex is wrong. While it may be wrong, he argues, it is not as wrong we make it seem. He believes that this coming out of the closet with regard to sex will put it in its proper place and maybe kids won’t be so intrigued by it.
I will let you read it yourself here.
Oh, one thing I will be proactive about right now by strongly objecting to . . . I would not choose the ice cream cone! Sorry brother, you lost me there. (You will have to read to understand.)
Let me know what you think.
