I am a male in my 50's, I have been a student of the bible since I was a child, been reading 3 to 4 chapters a week since the age of 10 (that means I have read the bible 6 to 8 times).
Learned early on how important it is to consider the context of the verse, chapter and subject under consideration.
It is also important to consider what the words meant at the time they were written as the meaing of words change over time, and some words may mean different things at the same time, as word meaning can be different from country to country...
Examples: 1. flat here in the usa we think of a flat tire, but in UK it is a word that is used to refer to ones apartment. 2. gay a few decades ago it meant happy joyful, but today it means you are homosexual.
I have been married to and faithful to my sexual opposite more than 20 years (thus far never been with anyone else, I credit my relationship with God for this), and have been searching the scriptures for God's view of sex in marrage, and will share my findings with all.
