As for Lori calling it sin and teaching younger women that it is a sin, I suggested that you to take it up with her and her husband. If a woman feels inferior or envious, or offended or bad about herself, she needs to deal with those thoughts inside herself by herself and with God. The question now is whether it is still a good thing to do. When you exhorted me to keep it to myself, were you keeping your application of Romans 14 to yourself? By entering this site, you certify that you are 18 years or older and, if required in the locality where you view this site, 21 years or older, that you have voluntarily come to this site in order to view sexually explicit material. In this instance what is commanded is to bury feces outside of the camp.
For health reasons, anal sex ought to be shunned. I am attempting to integrate Romans 14:23 in our thinking But whoever has doubts is condemned if he eats, because the eating is not from faith. But, personally, I recall how I was taught that the Old Testament was in oral tradition for centuries before being written down. As far as this blog is concerned every word of the Bible is the Word of God. Consider how God designed the mouth and tongue as perfect alternative body parts that can be used to give sexual pleasure.
We often get natural law wrong, and that should give us pause. Often these were not just prostitutes but they were in fact male sex slaves. The use of these is a tricky undertaking. But if it is a matter of it being a sin for all then I would say she has a right to refuse. The anus is surrounded with a ring-like muscle, called the anal sphincter, which tightens after we defecate.
Unlike the much tougher linings of the mouth and the vagina the anus has a very thin lining that is easily torn and can bleed and become infected. I say all that to say I agree with you and your husbands application of liberty and submission and trying not to offend your brother while being faithful to what you believe is right. Practicing vaginal sex after anal sex can also lead to vaginal and urinary tract infections. I am no expert, but from my understanding penetration pain can be avoided and the significant number of nerve endings in the anus can be stimulated to pleasure. Now that principle is easy to understand when it comes to spiritual equals, but it is more difficult when it when it comes to relationships like that of a husband and wife. One of the problems in assessing the concern is using the correct data.
For instance, the mouth is used for many functions such as eating speaking, breathing etc. It was a sign of the covenant between God and Abraham and later between God and Israel. The tissue inside the anus is not as well protected as the skin outside the anus. Why should just it be excluded! When a mother gives birth it is certainly painful. Beyond submission — what if the woman wants anal sex? So with all that being said as an introduction to the topic of anal sex let me now show you why I believe the Scripture condemn anal sex as a practice even between a husband and wife within the bounds of marriage.
Wearing nice clothes and makeup — generally caring about how we look when we go out in public, is shaming the moms who choose to wear pajamas and workout clothes as being dressed shabbier than us. Abraham asked for God to spare Lot and his family so the angels went there to get them. I may even find that most of the content of modern movies does not help me to love God more, I err when I condemn all movies as sin not just because I am incorrect, but because I accuse my brother and harm his conscience and perhaps his reputation. In fact I find the logic neither good nor necessary, but that is just my estimation. Even if both partners do not have a sexually-transmitted infection or disease, bacteria normally in the anus can potentially infect the giving partner.
I could shoot some bullets and point out some inconsistencies and arbitrariness in the conclusion, but it is unnecessary because the case is insufficient. It is an honest disagreement. I have talked about this in other posts and I discussed it at length in my post. Is thickness the the only determinate factor? Love toward one another seeks to keep others from harm. The immediate context gives no support to the contention that the use of anus for pleasure is against nature, unnatural or not a natural use.
As small children we may have touched something that was hot only to have it burn our fingers. Even in the case of oral sex — the mouth is very elastic, the skin is tough and saliva acts as a natural lubricant for sexual activity. Is it ok for a Christian couple to engage in anal sex? I am saying the warning is there for a reason and we should not ignore it. When a controversial claim is made, should that claim be unchallenged for the sake of peace and unity? My dad knew how she felt though and, rather than forcing her to ride with him to overcome her fears, sold it and bought a car instead. Either way, thanks for the info, just wanted to satisfy my curiosity. God did not make the vagina primarily for having children with the added bonus of vaginal intercourse the way he designed conception to occur being pleasurable for the man and woman.
Obviously a human child is not going to pass through the anus so it is not necessary for the continuation of the human race to expand for child birth. Lastly you stake its wrongness on the fact that pain and harm are involved. But then we come to things like motor cycle riding and skydiving. They get mad at other women for excelling at various things that men value in women whether it is in having children, caring for and organizing their home, maintaining their beauty, submitting to their husbands and sexually pleasing their husbands. Is thickness the the only determinate factor? So then it would be an issue of whether or not his request would be a sin on his part.
The ancient Egyptians practiced male circumcision. Ironically, the motorcycle example is exactly what happened to my parents back when they were newlyweds. So is anal sex ok for Christian married couples to engage in? To further buttress that, as the New Testament says, the marriage bed is undefiled. V26 is a reference to women who do not have sex with men, but replaced them with other women. If he did not take the car keys could he take away other privileges like her credit cards or even lock her out of the bank until she complies? Demanding that other people be responsible for your sins is spiritual immaturity and denial about your own issues inside.
