Many times I have heard fellow believers utter the words “sex is sacred” and it seems to be delivered under the guise, via body language and the tonality of words, that’s “talking” about sex is taboo and that we are not to talk about sex.
Do you know how many people have been in our facility with something broken about their sex life because they never appropriately talked about it?
ALL OF THEM!!!
We can talk about it and pervert and twist it in our secular lives, but on Sunday we are offended?
No wonder our churches are suffering from sexual cancers beyond comprehension. If we continue to avoid sex as a topic in healthy conversation we are just incubating the devastating potential of broken people, broken homes, and severely damaged legacies for our children.
You know what they say about types of cancer, “Early detection is the best prevention”. So the longer we are quiet, the bigger it gets and the more damage done and that gets passed on.
Take a peek here at the definitions:
Full Definition of SACRED
1 a : dedicated or set apart for the service or worship of a deity <a treesacred to the gods>
b : devoted exclusively to one service or use (as of a person or purpose)<a fund sacred to charity>
2 a : worthy of religious veneration : holy
b : entitled to reverence and respect
3 : of or relating to religion : not secular or profane <sacred music>
4 : archaic : accursed
5 a : unassailable, inviolable
b : highly valued and important <a sacred responsibility>
I could NOT find where it is “not to be spoken about, nor spoken of”, but this bible verse is highlighted by the holy spirit to me as an out of context but parallel message to me:
Titus 2 New International Version (NIV)
2 You, however, must teach what is appropriate to sound doctrine. 2 Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance.
3 Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. 4 Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5 to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
6 Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled. 7 In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness 8 and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us.
9 Teach slaves to be subject to their masters in everything, to try to please them, not to talk back to them, 10 and not to steal from them, but to show that they can be fully trusted, so that in every way they will make the teaching about God our Savior attractive.
11 For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. 12 It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, 13 while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.
15 These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Do not let anyone despise you.
So, yes sex IS sacred, if churches are so eager to preach and teach on tithing (mentioned roughly 36 times in the bible) let’s also create a culture where on a purity platform we can inform couples about good sex, healthy sex, and pure sex. (Sex is mentioned or alluded to so many times in the bible I didn’t bother to count)
Church, teach us that sex is good as it was intended by GOD to bless a marriage
