"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ;Let me take the speck out of your eye when all the time there is a plank in your own eye?"" Matthew 7: 3,4 (New International Version)
Nearly five years since starting Christian Pro Erotic, after years of struggling with my faith andmy sexual needs, after hearing the stories of many people of faith in the same situation I finally read the article in the July 7thTime Magazine.
Sexuality for Married Couples
And God Said, "Just Do It"is about Christian fellowships and churches tackling sexuality for married couples. It seems a movement is burgeoning where ministers and ministries are focusing on one issue: married couples in the church need more sex!
Finally, after so many years, we are cleaning a stubborn speck in the eye. Instead of putting down those in the world whose marriages do not live up to the snuff of church standards Christians will finally try to take out the plank of high divorce rates andfailed sex livesfrom the eye of the body of Christ.
Christian couples are finding programs such as New Directions Christian Church (Memphis, Tennessee) with their series"40 Nights of Grreat Sex"or Relevant Church (Tampa, Florida) with their"30-Day Sex Challenge"available to them to help their marriages grow and prosper.
I can tell you 20 years ago or so the advice would have been to "just pray about it and God will give you the clues to figure our how it will work out".
A step in the right direction
Now along with the Good Book we are finding couples armed with (gasp)the Joy of Sexin their arsenal to take back their bedrooms from a stale existence.
To me this is a step in the right direction and one which is way overdue; if these materials were available to Christian couples in the past–leadership and members–many marriages could have avoided heartache and tragedy in their lives. To realize they arefailing in the battle in the bedroomis a signal playtime is over. The church is ready to catch up with many other couples who made each night a night to remember.
The church had a flimsy argument to folks outside the church about engaging in spicing up their bedroom life. We kept serving Vanilla when everyone else dove into cartons of Rocky Road and Cookies and Cream (whether you add this to your bedroom play is up to you).
The church balked attoys, oils, massagesand (gasp) alternative venues to make things interesting. The thing I could not understand was how those folks who lasted 40 plus years together keep it together when it came to times of intimacy?
