Really? Sensuality is a sin?
With my interest in studying world religions, I tend to listen to a lot of sermons. I recently heard one on the radio which suggested that sensuality is a sin.
The context was, pray to God for forgiveness of your sins. Admit that you’ve been prideful, boastful, deceitful, sensual…
I said wha? Has this guy never heard of the Song of Solomon?
A few highlights:
“Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine.”
“I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.”
“A bundle of myrrh is my well-beloved unto me; he shall lie all night betwixt my breasts.”
“His left hand is under my head, and his right hand doth embrace me.”
“Thy two breasts are like two young roes that are twins, which feed among the lilies.”
“His legs are as pillars of marble, set upon sockets of fine gold: his countenance is as Lebanon, excellent as the cedars.”
How is it that many (not all), but many Christians feel that anything to do with sex must be a sin by default?
