The Gospel of Sex Vs. The Gospel of Christ

jones1Recently read The Gift of Sex by New Testament scholar Peter Jones of Westminster West (CA). In the text, Jones argues provocatively that in this world two options, in essence, vie for the mental and spiritual embrace of humanity. The first is “pagan monism,” which “abhors the Creator, hates his creation and creation’s structures, and promotes anything-goes “liberated” pansexuality.” The second is “biblical theism,” which “loves the Creator, celebrates the creation he has made, and submits to the structure of heterosexual monogamy” (194).

It may not appear at first glance that only two options confront us, but Jones, in the final analysis, is right. After all, either God—and His plan for humanity—is true and best, or He (and it) is not. If He lives and rules over all, then we must obey Him. If He does not exist and therefore does not reign, then we may live any way we please.

Some people seem to not believe in God and thereby pursue sexual gratification as they see fit; others disavow belief in God as a means to unbounded sexual gratification. Both groups make a tragic mistake, and neither tastes the goodness of God and His plan for creation.

    Owen, good comments.

    There are only two worlds.

    And the blessings of walking in God’s world sometimes are not apparent until one has walked there for some time.
