Strange as it may be, the Bible is filled with prophets who rant and rave while naked with their penis and balls in motion and in plain view, great stories of war and violent bloodshed, detailed descriptions of conquest and even God ordained genocide, but let there be one little book that talks about sexual lovemaking in open and, if the language be understood, graphic terms – touching, kissing, oral stimulation, penis, vagina, lubrication, erection, intercourse, orgasm – and many are shocked.
Sex is not shameful
and the human body
is designed as God’s
We need to realize that sex is not shameful and the human body is designed as God’s greatest masterpiece and that includes breasts that bounce, vaginas that become wet with arousal, penises that go from flaccid to erect and then ejaculate. All of this is extolled and praised in the wonderful pages of this Holy Book. Hallelujah! So, when and where it is legitimate to do so, we are invited to enjoy our own body, its potential for sexual excitement and pleasure, as well as that of our spouse.
There are all kinds of things in the Song of Solomon you would not expect to find in the Word of God. And they are there in livid detail and graphic description. Yes, as some folks maintain, this poem can be referring to God’s love for Israel, or the love of Christ for the church. But this is first and foremost erotica, the kind of explicit erotica that knocks your socks off! This is a very erotic book!
Now, let us examine the book in more detail, chapter by chapter, and verse by verse. Let us see what it really says. I promise you it will be a very “stimulating” study!
Feedback welcomed and appreciated.
Christians, Nudity and Erotica
And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
