God affirms eros.
Healthy eros requires a cocktail of practices on a regular basis, including affirmation, invitation, respecting each other’s boundaries, and a commitment to serving the other.
These ingredients aren’t possible in casual hook-ups, let alone pornographic stimulation via a fabricated fantasy world.
There’s a book in the Bible about sexual love, because God affirms it. There’s only one book in the Bible about sexual love because it is a part of life, but isn’t the whole of it.
This past Sunday’s teaching, “Eros Affirmed” might provide some insight into what I’m talking about. Steep a pot of tea, a carafe of French Press, or a glass of “something”, and have a look and listen – and maybe consider sharing with someone who’d benefit from it. One woman told me on Sunday she’s planning on sharing it with a few folks who’d benefit from it.
