Sex and the Bible
May 22, 2011
What does the Bible have to say about the sex-related issues that tie many American Christians up in knots and make it nearly impossible for government these day to govern? Enough —and ambiguous enough— to make wide consensus a tough thing to achieve.
In Nicholas Kristof’s NYT column this morning he goes over a few. Take his test to see how savvy you are on Biblical sexuality.
From The Old Testament’s Song of Songs:
Thy two breasts are like two young roes that are twins
which feed upon the lilies
Until the day break and the shadows flee away
I will get me to the mountain of myrrh
and to the hill of frankincence
Having thankfully gotten to the mountain of myrrh and the hill of frankincense a few times myself, that’s a bit of the bible that is refreshingly rich and earthy.
