1 Corinthians, Chapter 6
I have mixed feelings about Ben’s attempts to “convert” to heterosexuality in the name of God… but I like this take on a verse of the Bible (1 Cor 6):
“There’s more to sex than mere skin on skin. Sex is as much spiritual mystery as physical fact. As written in Scripture, ‘The two become one.’ Since we want to become spiritually one with the Master, we must not pursue the kind of sex that avoids commitment and intimacy, leaving us more lonely than ever–the kind of sex that can never ‘become one.’ There is a sense in which sexual sins are different from all others. In sexual sin we violate the sacredness of our own bodies, these bodies that were made for God-given and God-modeled love, for ‘becoming one’ with another…”
God-given or not, it really summarises my feelings on sexual relationships too.
Two become one.
