Does God Really Care About Love and Sex?

Posted February 13, 2012 Brad Bell

Love! It is intoxicating, alluring, anticipated, and intensely misunderstood. Yet these passions and desires are clearly seen in all of us. So where is God in all of this? Has God spoken into these deeply rooted desires in us, or has He left us to figure it out on our own? Fortunately, God has indeed spoken truth into these intense emotions and has given us guidelines on how we are to handle such explosive passions.

Tucked within the recesses of the Scriptures lies a gem of a book dedicated to bringing clarity to the mysterious design of a man and a woman. These short chapters provide a framework for those who are willing to reject the cultural view of experimentation and instead allow God to reframe the process. Standing in defiance of society and the obsession with sexuality, the Song of Solomon speaks to the deeper issues of intimacy, sexual discretion, and God's design for marital intimacy as the furnace for the free expression of sexual passion. Come and explore a book that will shame us, guide us, and give us hope for a new way of experiencing the gift of romance and intimacy as it was originally designed by God.

"Eat, friends; Drink and imbibe deeply, O lovers.”
– Song of Solomon 5:1
