Just Because Early Christian Martyrs Had No Time For Sex Doesn't Mean We Can't
It has been observed that there were no Christian martyrs killed for believing Christianity will give you a more satisfying sex life.
While that may be historically accurate, it does not follow that the sum total of the Christian's interest need to be circumscribed by the concerns of those living during that era of history.
Granted, the last thing the church needs is a pastor making love to his wife on a webcam as was to have been attempted at one particular megachurch a few years back.
However, it is constantly pounded into our heads that either Christ is Lord of all or that He is not Lord at all.
Was He not the one that decreed that reproduction and certain emotions to be shared between husband and wife were to be expressed in a manner the parties involved found pleasurable to a certain extent?
