    The first book of the Bible reveals that it was God who created humans as both “male and female.” Genesis 1:27, 31

    Later, God inspired a Bible writer to give these instructions to husbands: “Rejoice with the wife of your youth Let her breasts intoxicate you at all times.” Proverbs 5:18, 19

    Do those statements sound as if the Bible prohibits sexual pleasure?

    The facts show that in addition to making reproduction possible, God created the sexual organs in a way that allows a married couple to express their love and affection for each other in a mutually pleasurable way.

    Such relations can fill the physical and emotional needs of a man and woman who are in a warm and intimate relationship.

    The bible is useless fiction. People have sex. Always have and always will.

    And where exactly does it say that? As toddlers are socialized they learn they can't act on every impulse. And you can't have every woman you want. Our sexual desires are meant to be directed to our spouses.

    God designed the body of all creatures to desire sex, but with mankind our sexual desires should only be for our spouse.

    Sinners sin. So if you want to look at yourself as thought you don't sin as bad as the next person, you fall into a legalistic camp. Legalists HAVE to prove they are good enough to be saved. But they aren't.
