Theology of the Body

Dec 2, 2012 ()

Bible Text: TOBSL pp85-95  |  ,


Biblical Christianity may be the most body positive religion in the world. It teaches that God made matter and physical bodies and saw that it was all good. It says that in Jesus Christ, God Himself actually took on a human body (which he still has in glorified form), and that someday he is going to give us all perfect, resurrected bodies. It says that God created sexuality and gave a woman and man to each other in the beginning. The Bible contains great love poetry that celebrates sexual passion and pleasure. If anyone says that sex is bad or dirty in itself, we have the whole Bible to contradict him.
