1.0 out of 5 stars Gagging Jesus, 13 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gagging Jesus: Things Jesus Said We Wish He Hadn't (Paperback)
Gagging Jesus. The author rightly warns about diluting the life and words of Lord Jesus into fake water, as tailoring Jesus according to own taste is a common attitude. Unfortunately, in one of his Chapters, "Jesus on sex", Phil Moore himself is, in my opinion, gagging Jesus into a sensual god by comparing the love in The Trinity with sex in marriage (see pages 52-53). That is to me at best spiritual blindness and at worst blasphemy. Phil Moore ought to tell his church that he has failed in this matter. There are otherwise many good things in his book, but for his failure on the sex topic, I cannot honor this book with many stars.

Sex in marriage is meant to be based on love and friendship and is to be performed in decent manners, and is not meant to compensate Christians for moderation in other areas. Sex can easily be perverted into a counterfeit god, even in marriage (see Timothy Keller "Counterfeit Gods"). To be one body in Christ Jesus has nothing to do with sensuality, but much with agape love. In heaven there are no marriages among the saved ones, and no sex - according to the Bible!

I would say that sex has to do with much more than just sensuality. Surely it too should be a wonderful expression of agape love within marriage.

Absolutely right. In fact it looks like those who make it to heaven will be more like angels than randy little resurrected humans.

Personally I have been married for quite some time and we have enjoyed the sexual/love making side of our relationship, and still do. Having said that, I don't expect the after life to be Earth Part 2, and as a psychologist I don't expect the next world to include all the stresses and pressures that sex helps to get us through.
I fear "Phil" is possibly more interested in being "a bit edgy, man" than in telling it EXACTLY as it is. But I could be wrong and hope I am.
