Sex Is God’s Gift
By Adrian Rogers
Matthew 19:6 says, ” Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.” Marriage is a romance in which both the hero and the heroine die in the first chapter, and a new person comes into being. And that new person is one flesh.
In marriage, the husband and wife are to be one flesh physically. Sex is neither dirty nor impure; it is a wonderful gift of God. Now, Hollywood has made sex dirty, but that was not God’s intent.
When the Bible says “Thou shalt not commit adultery” (Exodus 20:14), or “flee fornication” (1 Corinthians 6:18), or “Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled: but adulterers and whoremongers God will judge” (Hebrews 13:4), God is not trying to keep us from sex, God is trying to keep sex for us.
God has established some high walls to protect and preserve sex. It is God’s wonderful gift, so that a husband and wife can know one another in the most intimate of relationships.
