Sex is Not Just Physical

“There’s more to sex than mere skin on skin. Sex is as much spiritual mystery as physical fact.” – 1 Cor 6:16 (The Message)

This took me a while to figure out. In my youth I treated sex as if it was exactly that – just physical. And at the time I thought no one was getting hurt. Now I know I was the one getting hurt.

Our culture says, “As long as you don’t get an STD and no one gets pregnant – then just have fun! No harm done, right? When it’s over , its over. But I think deep down we know this simply isn’t true. In our hearts, in our gut, and in our experiences eventually we come crashing into the reality the sex is not just physical. And to treat it like it is – is to hurt ourselves. Even if that hurt is a kind of numbness.

This is my story. This is many of our stories.

But things can change. There is hope. There is a different way to view sex. And there is always grace.

Disclaimer: This is an extremely controversial and sensitive subject – one that cannot be adequately written about or spoken about in a blog, or a 30min video. But, if you have the time, check out the message I gave a few weeks ago around the topic of sexuality. I will be receiving all hate mail at 😉
