Solomon on Sex

Sex and marriage are a big part of our identity. God made us sexual beings with a burning desire to express ourselves and intimately connect. Unfortunately, for many of us, those desires are burning out of control. Pornography is a $60 billion a year business with $12 billion spent by Americans. That is more than our country spends on pro-baseball, basketball and football… combined. More money is spent by Americans on pornography than the combined revenues of ABC, NBC and CBS. The number one consumer of pornography is teenage boys age 12 to 17. Today 10% of Americans admit to being addicted to online pornography. Wouldn't it be great if God gave us an instruction manual on how to enjoy a rich and fulfilling sex life all to God's glory? It turns out he has. The Song of Solomon, a frequently neglected Old Testament book, speaks with a candor that would make many of us blush, about love, sex and marriage.

Because sex is spinning out of control, many in the church portray our sexuality as an evil to be tamed. On Sunday mornings, you hear more against sex than for it. Rarely has the church viewed sex in a positive light. Contrary to what many of us have learned, a rich, passionate sex life is something God desires us to enjoy. We bring him glory when we enjoy sexuality within marriage.

Wouldn't it be great if God gave us an instruction manual on how to enjoy a rich and fulfilling sex life all to God's glory? It turns out he has. The Song of Solomon, a frequently neglected Old Testament book, speaks with a candor that would make many of us blush, about love, sex and marriage.
