God's Purpose for Sex
We are in the process of setting forth some basic scriptural principles which emerge from a firsthand study of the revealed Truth of God. And we're looking together in Genesis one and two. And I have shared with you three of these principles. First, we noted from this passage that marriage and sex are of divine origin. He thought of them. They are not the product of a human pervert. They are the product of a divine plan. Like all of God's gifts, they are good. They are perfect. They are sourced in Him. Second, we noted that marriage and sex were gifts given by God before the fall. Therefore, they are not sin. They may be prostituted. They may become sinful in their youth. But they are not sinful as God designed them for man. It is sin that perverts. It is grace alone that can perfect.
