Scriptures: Genesis 2:24-25, 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8
God has a plan for sex, a purpose for sex and God demands purity with sex. If you have ever heard a message on sex in church, you can probably sum it up in one word, "No". It is both a tragedy and a joke that you hear about sex everywhere except in church. What does God's Word say? Through this message, Dr. Merritt shares that God has an ideal for His idea of sex that is best for everyone.
"God basically has two purposes for sex. First of all, sex is for pleasure. Sex is not something that was meant to be endured, but enjoyed. There is not a romantic novel you can buy at Wal-Mart that is more sensual and erotic and exciting than the Song of Solomon." --Dr. Merritt
