Former Duggar Pastor: Sex Is Only For Christians
If this is the kind of counseling Josh Duggar was getting, maybe he was taking it much too seriously.
In a column titled “Sex Belongs to Christians,” Pastor John Piper opined that Hollywood had turned the “holy pleasure into a cheap spectator sport.”
“Sex belongs to Christians. Because sex belongs to God,” he wrote. “If it is used by those who do not believe and know the truth, it is prostituted.”
“The pleasures of sex are meant for believers. They are designed for their greatest expression by the children of God,” he continued. “He saves His richest gifts for his children. And as we enjoy His gift of sex, we say, by our covenant faithfulness to our spouse, that God is greater than sex. And the pleasures of sex are themselves an overflow of God’s own goodness.”
