[quote=Bobby Jim] … I’m really sick of hearing all of this from different commentators… do they really expect the Church to say “Don’t have sex outside of marriage… but if you do, it’s ok to use a condom.” The church says we’re called to be holy, to be perfect. …
I think the problem is that people don’t really understand the fullness of the truth regarding the Church’s position on no marital relations outside Marriage.
We have not been strong enough in defending the teaching that the Body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit. I believe our culture has an extremely difficult time with this because the Protestants have for the most part given up the thought of Mary being Forever a Virgin.
If you can’t understand that absolute requirement that the Tabernacle which held the actual Body of Christ is sacred and CANNOT be desecrated by relations, then how can you be expected to recognize the holiness of a simple fallible human being who is also the temple of the Holy Spirit, although not necessarily consecrated to God in the same way Mary was?
Our bodies are sacred and we need to return to the day when it was understood and accepted that relations were a sacred act whereby we join God as he has given us the opportunity to co-create life, to bring new souls into the world.
Seperating out a single act as merely a sport is the worst desecration our society has imposed upon the innocent youth.
Shame on Planned Parenthood for their unwillingness to truly protect the young, the innocent, the women and the babies.
