Pastor John Piper: Sex Is For Christians Only

“Sex belongs to Christians. Because sex belongs to God. ‘God created it to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.’ If it is used by those who do not believe and know the truth, it is prostituted. They have exchanged the glory of God for images. They have torn sex from its God-appointed place in the orbit of marriage. But they do not know what they are doing. And the price they will pay in this life and the next is incalculable. The pleasures of sex are meant for believers. They are designed for their greatest expression by the children of God. 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.” – Pastor John Piper, writing for Charisma News.
