Jon Acuff wrote an article for his blog stuffchristianslike.net entitled Sex. Now Cnn has picked up on the article and has put their 2 cents in. Now it’s time for me to put in my 2 cents.  Here is an excerpt:

Acuff, who is married, says Christians shouldn’t just teach abstinence. They should also teach that while sex before marriage is bad, “sex when you’re married is awesome.”

He says Christians damage sex in four ways:

They teach guilt, not abstinence.

They have very few ways to discuss it.

They write 10 books about lust for every one book about the gift of sex.

They’ve “made the crayon box pretty small” (they’re afraid of being creative during sex).

Acuff says it’s time Christian couples realize passionate sex is God’s idea.

As Christians we are apprehensive of talking about subjects such as sex. I take that back. We’re good at speaking about sex when we speak against sex in the sense that we should abstain from it before marriage, outside of a current marriage, or within the same gender. As we should. But I agree with Acuff here. We need to be teaching that sex is a gift from God and should be enjoyed by people who have made a marital commitment to each other. There are so many positives to a healthy sex life with your spouse. Sex is not taboo… within marriage. When it goes beyond what God intended, that is when perverseness and sin take place.

… rejoice in the wife of your youth. Proverbs 5:18

Wives, rejoice in your husbands too!
