Theology The goodness of Sex Body is integral to soul and spirit Splitting body & soul: ugly and monstrous God’s intimate love
God gave us sex as a powerful, sacred tool to express exclusive, permanent commitment in a loving dance that mirrors Trinity oneness. God created gender and sex in marriage as a foretaste pointing to the forever love story of the gospel.
God does not pour his intimate love into your heart unless there is commitment. You are not to do so, nor to ask for it.
