Theo Verelst Christianit and Society and Sex(uality)
Title say all, a gathering of thoughts on the combined subjects
of christianity, the society and large and the whole area
of sexual behaviour and sex related utterances.
Some chistianity based links and thoughts
(many of my pages will appear here)
More general thoughts
How do I gather the cast for a film on the Song of Salomon?
Even "worse" how do I do a video version of the movie, and
can this be done in an American Funniest (?) Home Video
I'm sory, I'm pushing things here, gues I'm bored of being kept
outside university, jobs, and seriously contentwise social
connections, and even from knowning what my pages generate.
I don't say it has to be done, and I don't say anybody
would have to watch it, it was just a thought that arises when
you walk into christian bookstores and find all kinds of
materials, some pleasurable, some educational, (some erronous),
includings classical videos such as Ben Hur and those types of
movies, and not a single "adult" movie. I guess learning how to
be gay and how to be atrociously violent is more desirable
than the book of salomon. Or is it learning by counter-example?
Oh incase someone is wondering, I did watch those movies,
had a pretty severe selection criterion (I have to like them,
and they have to contain at least remotely attractive human
beings and scenes making love in a natural way). Do they teach
a person anything? "The joy of sex"? I guess what it showed me is
the (on itself fairly obvious) idea that it is not about which
bodypart goes where (any 12 year old can tell you that), but
about people having at least some amont of care being together.
An at times its nice, as long as it isn't out of control, and
doesn't get in the way of the real thing.
Is that solid, scriptural doctrine, or Verelst babling or
fairy tales? There is ample scriptural material all over to
indicate that relationships are to include sexuality as a main
issue, even as a desirable and essential one (e.g. 1 Cor 7, see
also translation notes), and that at least in some very verifiable
cases this was not limited to obscurity. Is is quite remarkable
that some of the most examplatory periods of free and peaceful
life the history of the promised people in the promised
land shows a lot of activity in these areas. Also remarkable is
that this is not at all hidden, limited to marriage boundaries,
mixed with evil (at least not without rebukal and correction),
or with evil fruits.
Anyway, The last tempation of Christ was almost
banned by Rome, so I guess I must watch my language. Or protest?
