Overview

Sex Is Sacred is an exposé on the biblical stories of Genesis by Rev. Dr. Jones, which provides a groundbreaking perspective on the ideology of sex as depicted in the Bible. The purpose of this study is to give freethinking adults an opportunity to reconnect with the Church where they have become increasingly uncomfortable, or simply find a new spirituality. To quote the author, “Young adults are tired of the same old doctrine of Hell, sin, and abstinence.”

God commanded, “Be fruitful and multiply.” As evidenced by the Ten Commandments, while he had a problem with married persons straying outside marriage, he did not speak to the sex lives of consenting single adults. After all, sex is the source of our existence; therefore, why should it be considered sinful, vile, or dirty?

Reverend Jones encourages the Church to move forward into the twenty-first century, and not profess religious beliefs that are not in line with the real biblical stories. God did not see sex as a sin against him, then why should the Church?
