Christians understand that Sex is a gift from God, and an excellent way of keeping a married couple interested in one another. Sex is mentioned quite a bit in the Old Testament, and spoken of highly. A man and woman in a marriage own one another's body's, so one can never deny the other. A Christian husband and wife are only allowed to say "no" for sickness or prayer.
Don't fall into the trap of thinking Christianity is boring or stiffing. God isn't some big prudish bully, out to spoil everyone's fun. People who tell you otherwise either don't know God at all, or have an agenda that precludes responsibility to an authority greater than themselves.
Jesus Himself said God wanted man to live more abundantly. Can't do that if you're not having "fun."
YOU married him. Do you believe your own ability to judge a man you want to marry is so inept that you would marry a fool who didn't know you had things to do? I personally, having read a few of your hubs, have much greater faith in your intellect than that, Wry.
I love this assumption that men are the root of all evil, or that women have no sex drive.
The question was if Christians have sex for fun. Damned Skippy we do.
In Catholics we believe the man is the head of the family but the woman is just as important as the heart It just makes things easier and as far as having it 5-6 times a day, I think using reason would be of help,,and that certainly could not and should not be because of each working w/ jobs and babies etc etc
Poet> I am indeed ALL about Masculine Dominance. That doesn't necessarily make me a Bad Man. You, evidently, feel the world would be a better place if Evil Whitey the Christian would just shut-up, lay down, and geld himself. Feel free to lead by example on that one.
And don't you dare lump Christianity in with Islam. Here in America, Christians were behind Lincoln and freeing the slaves. Christians were behind the suffrage movement, and gave women the vote. Christians built Hospitals and Collages all across America, promoting scientific inquiry and societal progress. Christians abolished child labor.
The Bible promotes family and charity and personal fulfillment and liberty and Peace and Love and Joy. Protection of the weak. Respect and honor, both of the parent and the child. It does not condone abuse or neglect, nor does it promote infidelity.
Islam nor Atheism has done nothing to rival any of that.
absolutely not. Christians and Catholic both marry to procreate AND have fun. Sometimes they marry so as not to fornicate but many say they really enjoy sex and some married say it's even more special than "one night stands" and such that it intensifies the pleasure and specialness of it.........................................
Gen 18:11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women. Gen 18:12 Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?
Sex between a husband and wife is always permissible. If you look at the passages above, Sarah talks about having pleasure when God told them they would have a son. She was already an old woman.
God has ordained the union of a man and a woman. Sex is to be a time of intimacy. This kind of intimacy is not to be shared with others other than your husband or wife.
The marriage bed is undefiled. Heb 13:4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
And it is nice to see you more active here lately, the newcomers are mostly drive-by flashy evangelical types with no substance at all. It is satisfying at least to see some substance in the post -- however much we will always disagree
A man who calls a horse's rear-end the source for the Bible gets to claim others have no substance? Said with a smiley, to be sure. It's been my experience that repeated use of the smiley is the mark of a... Less than dominant personality, one might say.
Poet, all you've offered here is insult and ill willed innuendo. Not a shred of truth or substance in a word you've said. Did somebody spit in your bean curd everyday, this week?
Sex is a beautiful thing. God did not attend sex just for us to have babies. If you think about it, When God created man and woman he said that we are to become one flesh. Now when we have sex we are one and the feeling that one recieves during this time is remarkable. If you know your science you would know that there are two kinds of mammals that have sex for fun. one is of course humans and the other is dolphins. So bottom line is this Sex is an awesome gift God gave us.
It has been a gray area for a long time that in the UK, sex below the age of 16 is illegal and many frown on it. I'll be honest, I lost my virginity at 15, however I am not a criminal, I have lead a community driven...
Why is it that Christians believe that Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, Native Americans, etc. are all wrong in their beliefs and that they'll all go somewhere horrible when they die? Why can't we just accept that other...

Atheism only means the lack of a belief in God. Why is it so hard for Christians to realize that we dismiss their religion for the same reasons that they dismiss all other religions? It doesn't make us horrible people,...
