SONG OF SOLOMON 3:1- By night on my bed I sought him whom my soul loveth: I sought him, but I found him not.
Perhaps not in public-public, because that makes a market out of intimacy and tends to turn true love into pornography. Too much public talk makes sex more the activity of animals and less the activity of gifted human beings living before a God of love. The most intimate of all human encounters should be protected from too much public exposure, lest intimacy be lost and the dynamic of love itself be prostituted.
But in many Christian circles, the opposite problem is the norm. There is not enough discussion about sex as a gift from God. How futile! Christians who think that silence wilt suppress the topic are kidding themselves From the start of sexual feelings in puberty, to the quieting of sexual drives in older age, the topic should be given a lot of talk in the family and in the church. We need to understand this remarkable part of our being, and our understanding needs to be informed by God’s Word and repaired (because often it is broken) by God’s saving love.
