READ THIS FIRST:
I have a new post up on my Song of Solomon Bible Study blog.
It was written a few days ago and since then it has been brought to my attention how weird it might be that I concern myself even somewhat with the sexuality of married couples. The thought process is: you’re single. Therefore, you have no business telling couples how the Bible says to have good sex. It’s inappropriate and “shameful”.
My favorite metaphor for my relationship with Christ is the Bride/Bridegroom metaphor and the subsequent parallels between the sexuality and spirituality. I love it. But is it weird for me to think this way before I’m married? I’ve thought and talked like this for several years now and no one has ever told me it’s awkward or inappropriate, but now a couple of people have, so I’m wondering:
Is it inappropriate, awkward, or weird for me to write the kind of post I just did on the Song of Solomon Bible Study site?
I’d really like feedback from everyone. WARNING: the post is potentially sort of sexually graphic. No more than Song of Solomon itself, but still – Jewish boys weren’t allowed to read the book until they were twelve for a reason. So if you are drawn into temptation particularly through text and words, you probably shouldn’t read.
But for everyone else, please read and let me know. I really am ready to change my perspective on this if I need to, I just need some feedback from my brothers and sisters. So, here it is. Read and let me know what you’re thinking.
I hope everyone has a good weekend. I’ll be back on Monday with some posts I’m pretty excited about including posts on Christian cursing and the Southern Baptist Convention.
