NOT ENOUGH SEX

“You sure talk about sex a lot on your blog,” my mom said to me recently. I smiled and thought, “That sounds like something a mom would say.” I really don’t think I’ve blogged too much about sex, but neither do I shy away from it.
I personally feel that Hollywood and the media have taken over the topic of sex. It’s their favorite subject because sex sells for them. They preach it loud and often. The problem with the media over-saturating our society with the subject of sex is that they have the message all wrong. THEN what bothers me even more is the church and Christians stand by and remain silent on the subject. Someone needs to be telling the story right when it comes to sex.
The world sells us on things like this new commercial that says: “Life is Short, Have an Affair.” It tells us anything goes and with anybody. The world tells us that sex within marriage is dull, predictable and often absent. But the truth is God tells us that sex is a gift from Him to be enjoyed in marriage. Sex can be everything you’ve dreamed about when you follow God’s guidelines.
God is the creator of sex, and he made it as a gift for married couples. That’s the message the world, our churches and our children need to hear. Sex isn’t dirty, it’s a gift from God. The subject of sex was important enough to God that He devoted an entire book of the bible to the beauty of it (Song of Solomon).
I want the world to see from my blog, my pulpit and my marriage, just how awesome love, sex and marriage can be. I don’t think I over do it on the subject of sex on my blog. In fact, I’m not sure I talk about it enough. :)

    Great Post TREY MORGAN! Someone has to speak up for married sex and God's plan. I am proud of you!

  2. jasonS says:

    absolutely right.

  3. Janice Garrison says:

    I agree, Gods ways are never wrong and sex is a wonderful gift from God. Like anything, it can be abused when it is treated as a commodity one finds on the shelf, and sadly, that is how much of society and Hollywood view it. Sex and Lust are two different things.

    Good Post!

    Great point. I don't talk about sex on my blog, but I sure don't want Hollywood to be the only voice out there talking about sex. Absolutely, we need Christian folks talking about it. I believe Kay Arthur has also started doing women's studies about sex, as well.

  5. Angie says:

    I realize there are those that may not be comfortable with the "Conversations with God" books, however, book 2 has an absolutely awesome description of God's intentions for sex. It is very intense and very spiritual.

  6. NB says:

    That topic kinda cleared the comment box, didn't it! Seventeen comments about doughnuts and well…

    Excellent post. I liked this line – "Someone needs to be telling the story right when it comes to sex." So true!

    Who taught you? I also taught it on Wed. night to my girls classes for several years. I taught it from the Bible and from books – the girls were always attentive. At that time they were still not getting it from parents or from church. I hope someone is teaching it from God's word. gmj

    NB – So true :)

    Angie – I've heard good things about those books. Thanks for the info.

    Sex in it's proper perspective is not emphasized enough.Excellent blog,Trey.

  10. Stoogelover says:

    You've had excellent blogs on the subject and I agree … it's not talked about enough from God's perspective.

  11. Dr. Roger D. Butner says:

    Preach it, brotha!

    I keep waiting for Eddie Parish, of http://www.parishhermitage.org , to start writing a blog. Now there's a Christian brother (for whom I have tremendous respect) who talks about sex A LOT!!! 😀

    By the way, I really love Kevin Lehman's book, "Sheet Music." Great book on sexuality from a Christian perspective, and he actually had me laughing out loud all the way through.

    And finally, I always get a kick out of checking some of my behind the scenes blog stats. It is amazing how many of my visitors "click out" on the sex-related links I have listed. Let's face it – we're all interested. Keep bringing the truth – regarding sexuality, and everything else that matters in life.

  12. Warren Baldwin says:

    Right on.

    Trey,

    Keep preaching (and blogging brother). For those husbands who don't believe these words of yours refer them to 1st Peter 3:7 – and then ask them when is the last time they led their wives by serving them.

    You are right on!

    You can't talk about sex enough, IMHO. Sex education should go beyond "Put the Bible between your legs and don't open them!" As a sex therapist, I am constantly educating couples about sex and undoing common myths. Keep writing!

  15. Mikes Sumondong says:

    Preach it brother!

    The word must be preached including the topic on sex and i mean especially the topic of sex

  16. Michael says:

    I completely agree. The church needs to take a firm stand with this topic. I also believe parents need to take a firm stance with the topic. The message needs be that sex within marriage is a gift from God and not "predictable" as you put it. Abstinence rather than "safe sex" should be the message taught across the United States practiced by unmarried people. This post has inspired me to add this topic to my own blog soon. You hit the nail right on the head.

  17. Eternity_23 says:

    man. you nailed it. <— oops, you know what i meant.

    this is a great post. what is sad is that churches do disregard this topic or if they do bring it up it is only the negative. i wonder why. this isn't teaching a younger generation anything. it's either making their relationships with others feel like a burden or like they are sinful. of course, we agree sex before marriage is a big no-no, but in this day and age it happens. i believe if you are devoted to someone then it's OK. [i could go in depth a little more but i won't] . without sex – we don't make babies! and that's a beautiful part of life! well, that kind of IS life. heh.

    There's a sister in Christ named Patsy Rae Dawson and she and her husband minister together and have a website http://gospelthemes.com/
    where they talk about many subjects. Her best teaching is her book "Marriage: a Taste of Heaven: Vol 1: God's People appreciate Marriage. Vol 2: God's people make the best lovers is good as well. She instructs us on how women ought to view sex as a good and vital thing! She speaks to us about Prov 5:18-19 and she breaks down the entire book of Song of Solomon verse by verse. It's definitely a good and instructive read for God's people! God created us (with our sexual desires and needs) so sexual love definitely is for us and we ought to reclaim it!

    Anna Renee – Thanks for the link and the information. And amen to your last sentence. :) Blessings.
