Masturbation is Not A Sin According To The Bible. Here Is The Proof

Masturbation is Not a Sin According to The Bible
Scriptural Exegesis by John Wilder

It is indeed surprising how many main-stream pastors who would eschew “proof texting” have no problem doing exactly that when it comes to masturbation. Sadly the discussion of sex in churches in our country are limited to it is “bad, dirty and wrong and that good girls don’t do it”. They completely miss out on all the sex positive messages from the bible and that sex is a gift from God.

The churches completely ignore a NT mandated ministry in Titus 2 where it says: “that the older women of the church are supposed to teach the younger women of the church how to love their husbands (sexually) so that the Word of God is not blasphemed” As a result there is a lot of lousy sex going on out there because so many women have real ambivalence over their sexuality. Sex is of course on of the big 3 that couples fight about and divorce over.

We live in a very puritanical society, not unlike the middle east who are also puritanical about sex. As a result, we have the highest divorce rate on the planet.

Let us not therefore judge one another any more; but judge this rather, that no man put a stumbling block or occasion to fall in his brother’s way. Romans 14:13

We tell our kids not to masturbate that it is a sin. God made the sex drive one of the most powerful known to man. You lay a huge load of guilt on kids over this.

For the record, there is no place in the bible stating that masturbation is a sin or even referring to it. The Catholic church talks about the sin of Onan in Genesis 38 where he spilled his seed on the ground. This however had nothing at all to do with masturbation but Onan was having sex with his deceased brother’s wife according to Jewish law to raise up an heir to his deceased brother. God performed the death penalty on Onan for his sin of disobedience.

The bible is very explicit and detailed in what God defines as sexual sin; Tokens of virginity were required of the bride (bloody sheets) in Deut 22:15-17.

Daughters were not supposed to be a whore and fathers were not to pimp out their daughters as whores in Leviticus 19:29 and 21:7,9

Priests of the temple could not have any blemish or physical abnormality including having damaged testicles (and they wanted to inspect them) in Leviticus 21:20

Priests were required to marry only a virgin of his tribe according to Leviticus 21:13

Speaking of testicles, if a wife observing her husband in a fight with another man and the other man was beating up her husband, if she grabbed the man’s testicles to be an equalizer to help her husband in the fight, her hand was to be amputated. Deut 25:11-12

Not only was incest forbidden but God gave us every possible family combination considered incest in Leviticus 18:6-18

You were not supposed to have sex with your wife on her period (OT only, Hebrews 13:4 dispenses with the ceremonial laws) in Leviticus 18:19

You were not to commit adultery with your neighbor’s wife in Leviticus 18:20

You were not supposed to have homosexual sex according to Leviticus 18:22

Men and women were forbidden to have sex with animals I n Leviticus 18:23

You were not supposed to have orgy sex to false gods in Leviticus 20:5

If you persuade a virgin to have sex with you then you are required to marry her according to Deut 22:28-29

Cross dressing was forbidden in Deut 22:5 for both men and women.

We are told to flee fornication in the NT in the following chapters: Gal 5:19, Eph 5:3, and Col 3:5. But so many people mis-translate fornication as having sex as singles.. What fornication actually means is not to earn your living as a temple prostitute in the false god worship which consisted of mass orgies in the groves to false gods. Because people were poor, the would be paid prostitutes to help people who did not have a willing partner to have sex with. There was a split in pay between the prostitute and the temple. Fornication in the greek is where we get our word for pornography. The literal greek is porneo and pornea which is a male and female prostitute.

Have you noticed that there is no mention of masturbation here? God created sex as a gift for us and for our pleasure. It is such a strong drive in us that God allowed young teens to get married to have a legal outlet for their sexuality. This is demonstrated in Proverbs 5 where it says:

Let thy fountain be blessed and rejoice always with the wife of your youth (young teens). Let her be as a loving hind and a pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy you at all times and be thou always RAVISHED in her love. Prov 5:18-19

Ravished is a biblical word for having great sex

Because sex is such a strong drive in man, God allowed multiple wives and concubines for men to have legal sex with when the primary wife turned them down for sex.

This of course changed with the Proverbs 31 woman where the wife was tasked with now taking care of all the husband’s sexual needs instead of having multiple wives and concubines where it says that he will have no need of spoil. Spoil is an arcane term where the conquering armies got to take the stuff from dead soldiers houses including the pretty young widows. It says that the husband will praise her and the scholars in The Thompson’s Chain Reference Bible rightly translate this into his appreciation for her sexual submission and conjugal love as a footnote in the margin.

In I Cor 7:3-5 we are told that the husband does not have the right to refuse his wife sex nor does the wife have the right to refuse her husband sex. Pretty sex positive don’t you think?

So considering all of these scriptures you must realize that to define masturbation as a sin, you must posit that God made a mistake that we have to correct because God forgot to mention masturbation as the sin that we all KNOW THAT IT IS.

Well according to the bible we are not supposed to add to the word or take away from it.

You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that You may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you. Deut 4:2

Whatever I command you, you shall be careful to observe it: You shall not add to it or take away from it. Deut 12:32

Every word of God is pure: He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Do not add to His words, lest He rebuke you and you be found a liar. Proverbs 30:6

I know that whatever God does, it shall be forever. Nothing can be addedTo it and nothing can be taken from it. God does it that men should fear Him. That which is already been and what is to be has already been: And God requires an account of what is past. Eccl 3:14-15

For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add unto him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of this book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life from the Holy City and from the things which are written in this book. Rev 22:18

We as Christians are supposed to only teach biblical truths and not make up our rules and man- made doctrines like Catholics do. We are believers in the book but sadly we are seeing legalism creep into our churches to our people’s detriment. This is specifically forbidden by Jesus in the following scripture:

And in vain do they worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments Of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men, the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do. He said to them, All to well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition Mark 7:7-9

We also had a problem with Asceticism cropping up in the NT which is also forbidden in the following scripture:

Therefore, if you died with Christ from the basic principles of the world, why, as though living the world do you subject yourselves to regulation Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle, which all concern things which perish with the using-according to the commandments and doctrines of men. These things indeed have the appearance of wisdom in self-imposed Religion, false humility, and neglect of the body, but are no value against the indulgence of the flesh. Col 2:20-23

The proof texted verse is the only one that people who argue for masturbation is a sin is found in Math 5:28

But I say unto you whoever looks on a woman to lust after her has already committed adultery with her already in his heart.

This is an impossible standard that Jesus set for us but a goal to strive to reach in our our lives. The idea was to avoid sexual sin. The answer is to masturbate to relieve the sexual tension that would cause us to lust after a woman. I can remember that in my twenties I decided to see just how long I could go without sexual relief in masturbation. I lasted for two weeks. During this time I had constant erections and lusted constantly after women. Normally I masturbated every day to contain my lustful thoughts and embarrassing erections.

Paul talked about keeping his body under subjection and we can infer that he was referring to masturbation to do so because of the previously stated sexual arousal when you don’t have sexual relief.

Finally here is the slam dunk verse that proves that masturbation is not a sin:

And if a man’s seed of copulation go out from him, then he shall wash all his flesh in water, and be unclean until the evening. And every garment, and every skin, whereon is the seed of copulation shall be washed with water, and be unclean until the evening. The woman also with whom man shall lie with seed of copulation, they shall both wash themselves in water, and be unclean until the evening. Leviticus 15:16-18

Now the bible does not say how the man’s sperm is discharged whether a nocturnal emission or masturbation, it simply says that if his seed is discharged then he needs to take a bath. Masturbation feels good and gives us sexual relief when we are not married. Even little girls routinely masturbate if left to their own devices unless a scolding parent tells them that it is bad, dirty and wrong. We have no business laying this legalism on our kids or ourselves..


Sex Is Better Than Drugs Or Booze, You Need To Have It More

Sex Is Good For You, Why Are You Not Having More?

Sex is Good For You
________________________________________
Sex is one of those things that can make your life soar, or cause you untold grief and heartache. You have a choice in the matter so why not work to make it fantastic? Sex is one of the big three that couples fight about. Why not stop fighting and just start having sex? Couples fight because someone is not getting their needs taken care of.

When you have an orgasm, your body releases endorphins to the brain. Those endorphins have the ability to lessen pain. Endorphins create an elevated mood. Endorphins help prevent clinical depression. It can also help prevent post-partum depression. Frequent orgasms promotes positive bonding between men and women. Think back early in your relationship when you were having sex frequently. Remember how tightly bonded the two of you were?

Frequent sex helps control weight and is equivalent to a workout in a gym, burning an average of over 200 calories. You say you don’t have time to go to the gym, well you can always make time to have sex with your partner at home and it saves gas going to and from the gym. Frequent sex like frequent exercise actually helps to lessen your appetite for food. So often people substitute food for sex. You are better off substituting sex for food.

Frequent sex helps the body’s immune system to fight off disease. Frequent sex creates strong bonds between a man and a woman and helps to prevent divorce and makes cheating much less likely. Sex helps prevent prostate cancer. Frequent sex has been documented to help prevent heart disease and heart attacks. Sex after a heart attack is not only recommended by cardiologists but helps to strengthen the heart. Frequent sex is commanded and commended in the Bible. Frequent sex helps women avoid osteoporosis. People go to the gym to do workouts. One of the suggested exercises is deep knee squats. If women will have their man lay on the floor, she can do deep knee squats over him as she is having sex with him. This tightens the butt, calves, thighs and tummy

Imagine doing a workout and having sex at the same time. You get a two for one benefit. Having sex with a man and having your legs lifted in the air or draped over his shoulders keeps you flexible

Doing pelvic thrusts is good for the tummy and lower back muscles. Having a man fondle and play with a woman’s boobs could help discover any knots or growths in her breasts and could save your life.

Doing Kegel exercises during sex can prevent incontinence later in life.

Doing Kegel exercises during sex can serve to make you more highly orgasmic and definitely improves the quality of sex for both the man and the woman. Frequent satisfying sex improves work productivity.

Frequent climaxes have served women to help shrink their uterus and abdomen more quickly after childbirth.

Frequent sex helps to promote restful and recuperative sleep.

Sex can comfort a person when they are sad and depressed. Sex is a wonderful way to celebrate a positive life event. It truly is a wonderful cure-all if couples will just stop refusing sex and let go and take care of their mate. There is also nothing more lonely, hurtful and depressing to have to masturbate because your partner refuses you. When you have a choice to do good or be self-centered, choose to do good. You will feel better about yourself. Finally in the chapter on Sex and The Bible, frequent and great sex is commanded and commended by God.


Women Here Is Some Great Sex Advice From the Bible

January 29, 2012

Let her breasts satisfy thee at ALL times and be thou always RAVISHED in her love. Proverbs 5:19

You will never see this biblical passage preached on in a sermon or taught on in a sunday school and that is too bad. Churches are all about telling girls and women that sex is bad, dirty and wrong and that good girls don’t do it. There are many more sex positive messages like these in the bible.

So let me give you a little biblical interpretation from this particular passage. Men love your breasts. Some times we need comfort in them when the world has beat us up. I call this titty nuzzling where I just want to bury my face in my woman’s breasts and seek comfort there and for her to make it all better.

This is sort of the reverse where the woman has had a very bad day and she seeks comfort in a man’s strong arms holding her and making it better for her. Men are strong but sometimes they feel weak and need encouragement and comfort from your breasts. You would do well to wrap your arms around his head and tell him to enjoy your breasts as long as he needs to and that it is okay with you and you want him to seek comfort from your breasts.

Men also love it when you rub your breasts against him in public, like standing close to him and holding his arm and pressing your breasts against the back of it to reassure him that you are his woman and proud to be so. We also love it when you rub your breasts against our naked bodies in bed.

I love it when a woman will give me a nipple massage, rubbing just her nipples up and down my body but especially against my penis. I love it when a woman is riding me on top and she leans forward and every stroke, caresses her breasts against my chest. See you never knew that your breasts were so multi faceted and useful to please your man.

The accented word is at ALL times. Not just when you feel like it. A man does not feel loved or respected when you reject his sexual overtures. He resents it especially if you force him to masturbate alone.

Ravished is a great biblical word meaning GREAT SEX. Don’t just lay there with your legs spread while he pounds away at you. Be active, be involved, let him know that you enjoy him trying to pleasure you. Give him sex willingly and lovingly. It is the greatest relationship insurance that you can have. Your man won’t be tempted to cheat on you if you willingly take care of his sexual needs. And finally don’t always make him approach you for sex. Take the initiative once in a while. Men Love that. And be willing to wear lingerie that pleases him. Men love seeing you in lacy frilly lingerie with some color and lace trim. The relationship that you save could well be your own.

Blessings on you and yours John Wilder

Sex And The Bible, Surprising Sex Positive Messages Contained There

Sex And The Bible, Surprising Sex Positive Messages Contained There

——————————————————————————–
I originally posted this blog back of February last year. I was just starting out and did not have very many readers. Now a lot of people read my blog every day and I commend it to you for the sex positive messages contained in it.

Blessings on you and yours
John Wilder

Most people would be surprised at the amount of biblical commands in the Bible about sex. They would be even more surprised at the number of positive commands regarding our sex lives. God wants us to have a rich full sexual relationship.Unfortunately, most people have the notion that you are not supposed to talk about sex in church. As a former minister of youth, I was castigated by some parents for teaching a high school class on the subject of what the bible defines as sexual sin. I was told: “you are not supposed to talk about sex in church.” I was singularly amazed because the Bible is what sets the standards for our life. It gives us rules for living. It also defines what is and is not sexual sin. These parents were actually mad at me for teaching the Bible in Sunday School to high school students whose hormones were all raging. It was interesting because the pastor’s 16 year old daughter was in on the class with her parent’s knowledge and blessing. I had thought about telling the parents in advance what I was going to teach, but thought better of it for fear that they would yank their kids out of the class that week. I knew enough to be prepared for the attack.

Jesus said in the Bible to: be wise as a serpent and yet harmless as a dove. Mathew 10:16. Following that mandate, I took the precaution of audio taping the class. I did not want there to be unfounded accusations that could not be defended against. Sure enough parents came in “guns blazing” and accusatory. I simply told them before they started castigating me they should take the tape home and listen to it and see what they found that was wrong or inappropriate. Of the three sets of parents who complained, not one of them would take the tape home and listen to it.
These feelings come about from long standing admonitions to little girls who grew up with the words of their parents in their ears, that: “good girls don’t do that”. That is a huge problem among couples today. When girls grow up to be women and it is time to embrace their sexuality, they can’t relax and be uninhibited with their husbands and enjoy their sexuality.

In a previous chapter, I referred to a course taught by a woman named Marabelle Morgan about how to love your husband including sexuality. We had her seminar coming to our church in 1975. Women were to read the book before the seminar took place.
We had some women object to the seminar conference because it contained sexual references as to how a woman is supposed to take care of her husband. This feeling prevails even today in churches. My question is: Do you think that God made a mistake? How about those references in the Bible about sex? Should we tear those out of the Bible? Pastors and Sunday school teachers don’t dare teach or preach on the subject. What happens is invariably you have women going on the attack and using shaming statements if men mention sex, especially in light of the fact that women are not fulfilling their role

Couples fight about the big three: money, sex and kids. The bible is very clear on sexual issues between husband and wife. Because fighting is common over sex, there is a scripturally mandated ministry in Titus 2:4-5 That they (the older women of the church) may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, (how to love including answering sexual questions), to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands that the word of God be not blasphemed. KJV

In essence, the Titus 2 ministry amounts to a school for sex for women in how to love their husbands. It was so imperative that it was explained in the scripture that it was to avoid causing blaspheming the Word of God.
Blasphemed translated from the Greek is blasphemeo. To: insult, slander, curse, speak evil of, reviled, defame, or railed upon.

As mentioned in the chapter on feminists, research shows that fully 60% of women only want sex once a week. Sadly they inflict that schedule on their husbands. This was also common in the biblical times. Now I know that there are exceptions and sometimes it is the wife with a high libido and a husband who does not want it as much. Our purpose is to cover the majority of the people out there. We will consider what the bible says as we are commanded to do in living our lives.

It says in Proverbs5:18-19 Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth. Let her be as a loving hind and a pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee At All Times; and be thou Ravished Always with her love.
Most women feel that they have a perfect right to reject her husband’s sexual overtures any time she feels like it. This is what is taught by the feminists. On the other hand, when is the last time that you ever saw a feminist point anyone to Jesus? Is there any thing in the above passage that you could interpret to get that permission? “ Let her breasts satisfy thee At all times” means when the husband needs it. At all times means just that. It is really not open to interpretation. When the wife disobeys these biblical commands, it sets up a temptation for the husband and it ultimately means that the Word (instruction in the bible) is blasphemed.

The Bible often uses figurative and poetic speech to describe something. “Let thy fountain be blessed” is referring to the man’s penis. It is a wish and an admonition that he be gifted with children and that his wife takes care of him well.

“ Rejoice with the wife of your youth” is an interesting passage. God understood the sexual urge that he put into mankind. He set it out that under Jewish law, a boy was considered a “man” when he hit age 13, or roughly at the onset of puberty. Once puberty hits, he is full of raging hormones and needs sexual relief often sometimes more than once a day. To avoid sexual sin, adolescents were routinely married between the ages of 13 and 15 thus giving them a legal and moral sexual outlet for their relief. The young couple would then stay with one of the sets of parents until they were able to financially make it on their own.We have trampled on God’s plan and tell our children to wait until their twenties to get married. Is it any wonder that we have so much extra marital sex, unwanted pregnancies, and epidemic sexually transmitted diseases.

“ Let her be as a loving hind and a pleasant roe.” Again the bible uses figurative language here to compare a woman to a hind and a roe. The animals referred to here are deer and roebucks. In the animal world, mating is often marked with violence. You have heard cats squalling and hissing. The female goes through a lot of aggression and scratching before she submits to mating. Deer are just the opposite. They willingly mate with their bucks. They are probably the most beautiful and graceful animals in the animal kingdom. This is a supreme compliment to a woman to compare her mating with her husband like a female deer mating with her buck. The Bible goes on to reiterate this in comparing her to the roe or roebuck which is a type of mountain sheep, where mating takes place high on mountain cliffs. If the female roebuck does not mate willingly and cooperatively with the buck, then they could easily fall to their deaths from the high mountain cliffs where mating takes place, protected from predators.

Ravished always is a biblical word for not only giving your husband sex, but giving him GREAT SEX. Not just great sex, but again the always is reiterated. Always means always not just when you feel like it. The bible forbids us to be a “stumbling block” in Romans 14:13, Mathew 18:7. A stumbling block is causing someone by your actions or inactions that would cause that person to be tempted to sin. By denying your husband sex, you are a stumbling block to him.

Let the husband render unto the wife due benevelolence; and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife doth not have power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. Defraud ye not one another, except it be with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, so that Satan tempt you not for your incontinence. I Corinthians 7:3-5

If you read this, there is no way that you can interpret that the wife has a right to say no to her husband. Nevertheless, so many of you do with impunity in defiance of God’s word. The Bible is always equalitarian. Notice too that the husband does not have the right to refuse his wife sexual relations. The only time that sex is supposed to be put on hold is with Mutual Consent by the husband and wife for a brief time of prayer and fasting.

So many women try to relate to their husband’s sexuality through their own. Men’s sexuality is driven by semen build-up. Remember the time when you were pregnant. It is a fact of life that a pregnant woman has to urinate more often because the baby is pressing on your bladder. You can’t help it. Now let us play role reversal here for a minute. Think about your husband feeling the same way as you do, because that is what a man’s sexual drive feels like. He does not have a choice when he needs relief. Let us role play here further. Imagine that you are in a car with him on a long trip and you are pregnant. You say: “honey, can you pull over because I have to go to the bathroom.” Now let us pretend that your husband answers you like so many women answer their husband’s requests for sex: “ What you have to pee again, is that all you can ever think about? Do you have a one track mind? What are you some kind of peeing pervert? I am tired; I don’t feel like pulling over. Leave me alone and quit bugging me. Listen, maybe tomorrow I will pull over and let you pee”. You women would declare war on us if we talked to you that way when you had to pee.

For the most part women want sex once a week. For the most part men want sex 3-5 times a week. Let us compromise and say you give it to him 4 times a week. I can just hear the screams and howls from you women now. ” No Way Am, I Doing It That Often”. The average act takes about 30 minutes start to finish. If you actually gave your husband sex 4 times a week, that would come to two hours. Now out of 168 hours in the week, that represents only slightly more than 1% of your time. I say that if you can’t give your husband 1% of your time to nurture him and love him, your priorities are all wrong. God wants 10% and you can’t give your husband a lousy 1%? This is why most men are not very romantic, they figure, why bother? Most women don’t understand that it is the woman that inspires men to romance by how they treat him. From the time that you were a little girl, you dreamed about Happily Ever After. The problem with that dream is that has always been self-centered. You imagine the prince gazing upon you with rapt attention, but you never understand that the prince has needs that you need to satisfy. I have never heard if a woman thinking about what her responsibilities to fulfilling his happily ever after wants and desires. Because you don’t satisfy them, he stops being romantic.

God in the Old Testament allowed multiple wives and concubines for men to be able to satisfy their generally higher sex drives. God allowed this so that men would not commit adultery. If the first wife turned him down for sex, he had back-up wives and/or concubines to take care of him sexually. In the Old Testament there are 121 references to multiple wives. There are also 39 references to men having concubines to satisfy their sexual desires which God allowed. God even specified laws to protect the wives and the concubines. Then in God’s progressive revelation, He changed it to where there was one man and one woman and it transitioned in Proverbs 31. The heart of the husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. Proverbs 31: 11-12. Now many bible translators of newer modern language bibles incorrectly translate the Hebrew word for spoil here as meaning earthly gain. This is incorrect. The old fashioned term spoil comes from the spoils of war. This is where the invading army got to go in and take things from the homes of the killed opposing soldiers. Now it is true that spoil would be acquisition of goods from the houses, but it was also women that God allowed. In the Proverbs 31 passage, it is referring to concubines.

Spoil is both a noun and a verb. Sadad is a verb and the Hebrew word in the Old Testament meaning to: loot, plunder, or take spoils. Once the soldiers took all that they wanted, then they generally destroyed the houses and stuff that they did not want. This is one of the ways that Armies rewarded soldiers to literally risk death and put their lives on the line. The promise was that if they were victorious, they could go in and take rewards from the homes of the dead soldiers. You may have heard the term rape and pillage. This is what happened when the victorious soldiers came into the conquered cities. They would go through the houses and claim the women that they wanted by raping them and taking them captive. Once that was done then they ransacked the houses, taking any goods of value for their own. This act was called pillaging or spoiling.

Sod is a noun in Hebrew. It means what is left after the violence, rape and destruction. It means: desolation, destruction, spoiled, oppression and wasting. There are actually 11 different words in Hebrew for spoil.
One of the main things that they took were the women who were then destined to become secondary wives called concubines with a status only slightly above a slave. When the primary wife refused her husband’s sexual overtures, then it fell to the concubine to satisfy the man’s needs. Interestingly enough, the word for concubine in Hebrew is literally pilages. So in other words, the word pilages was literally transliterated out of the Hebrew and put into the English language equivalent word pillage.
And the children of Israel took all the women of Midian captives, and their little ones, and took the spoil of all their cattle, and all their flocks, and all their goodsBut all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves. Numbers 31:9,18

But the women and the little ones, and the cattle, and the spoil thereof, shall you take unto yourself, and you shall eat the spoil of your enemies which the Lord your God has given to you. Deuteronomy 20:14

When you go forth to war against your enemies, and the Lord your God has delivered them into your hand and you have taken them captive, And you see among the captives a beautiful woman, and you have a desire for her, that you would have her to be your wife; Then you shall bring her home to your house; and she shall shave her head, and pare her nails; And she shall put the raiment of her captivity from off her, and shall remain in your house, and bewail her father and her mother a full month; and after that you shall go in unto her, and be her husband, and she shall be your wife. Deuteronomy 21:10-13

Have they not divided the prey, to every man a damsel or two? Judges 5:30

Well Proverbs 31 is a transition to a having only one wife and no concubines. Here means that he shall have only one. This wife is now obligated to satisfy all of his sexual needs. She honors his trust in her by taking care of him sexually. It reiterates that she shall do him good and not evil all the days of her life. This was a huge transition time. Because the father was expected to take a more active role in rearing his children, he could not do that with multiple children with multiple wives. Transitioning to only one wife then allowed him fewer children to take care of. It also strengthened the family unit. With that in mind, how can you say that denying your husband sexual relations is doing him good?

Her husband is known in the gates, when he sits among the elders of the land. Proverbs 31:23

When a wife gives her husband sex willingly and lovingly and does not deny him, he becomes centered and balanced. He has a feeling of contentedness. This enables him to focus on his business or job and be quite productive which allows him to excel. This excellence gets him promotions, more money and respect of his peers and superiors.

It is further evidenced in the conclusion of Proverbs 31:28 where it states: Her children arise up, and call her blessed: her husband also, and he praises her. Men complain among themselves when their wives don’t take care of their sexual needs. On the other hand, if she does, he literally sings hers praises and tells people how lucky he is to have her. It is this feeling that causes him to do romantic things for her. Women, like it or not, if you want romance, you have to take care of your husband’s needs in such a way that he literally feels inspired to romance you. If you are not taking care of him, believe me, he has no desire or inspiration to romance you, only to resent you for starving him sexually.

This point is illustrated by the following Biblical passage: He (she) who sows sparingly shall also reap sparingly. II Corinthians 9:6 He wants sex, you want romance. Starve him for sex; you will be starved for romance.

Finally, as parents and our parents have done, we have put so much emphasis on “thou shalt not” to daughters, many can’t relax and enjoy their sexuality as the gift that God made it and intended for it. As a coach, this is a common thing that I work with women on. Freeing them from inhibitions to enjoy their sexuality. The bible addresses this issue in part in Hebrews 13:4 where it says:

Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled;

This means that there is nothing that you and your husband can do in bed that is wrong. This also freed the couple from the Old Testament laws of cleanness. For example in the Old Testament couples were forbidden to have sex during a woman’s period. She could not even go into the temple during her period. Also, if the couple had sex the night before temple, they were required to go through ceremonial washing 7 times before they were allowed to go into the temple. They were also required to wash the bed linens as well before going into the temple. So Hebrews 13:4 negated all of those Old Testament laws of cleanness.

You need to relax, enjoy your sexuality and understand that biblically you don’t have the right to say no. If you give it willingly and lovingly I promise that you will see your husband be much more attentive and actually develop some romantic tendencies. Whether or not the relationship succeeds or fails is largely up to you the wife. I will leave you with one last biblical warning:

“ Every wise woman builds her house, but the foolish one plucks it down with her hands.” Proverbs 14:1

The house being referred to here is her husband as in the house of David. We are not talking about actual construction issues. The Bible here is referring to building up your man with praise and respect. It also builds his self esteem when you give him sex willingly and lovingly

Let me give you some surprising biblical passages from the Song of Solomon:

A bundle of myrrh is my beloved unto me: he shall lie all night between my breasts. 1:13

I have a slang term for this that I call titty nuzzling. Sometimes when men are hurting and needing comfort, they want to get their face between your breasts, nuzzle, suckle and have you wrap your arms around his head and stroke him and comfort him.

I found him whom my soul loves: I held him and would not let him go until I had brought him into my mother’s house. 3:4

You can just imagine this woman wrapping her arm around his arm tightly and pressing her breast against the back of his arm and walking with him.
Your two breasts are like two young does that are twins that feed among the lilies. 4:5 Here her man is admiring her breasts that she has already given to him willingly and lovingly and he is inspired to romance.

Your lips, Oh my spouse, drop as honeycomb; honey and milk are under your tongue;

Here again the man is inspired to romance as he is describing how wonderful it is to kiss her what it feels like to get oral sex from her willingly and lovingly given.

This your stature is like a palm tree, and your breasts are like clusters of grapes. I said, I will go up to the palm tree I will take hold of the boughs thereof; now also your breasts shall be as clusters of the vine7:7-8

Again the man is waxing poetic over the physical love and sex he enjoys from his wife. Clearly this woman is not saying no to sex with he husband. He describes how much he enjoys fondling her breasts.

I am my beloved’s and his desire is unto me. 7:10

The woman is glorying in the fact that her husband is faithful and loving to her because of how well she takes care of his sexual needs and feels good about herself, her husband and her marriage and how romantic he is to her. She feels loved cherished and secure, all because of the fact that she willingly and lovingly takes care of his sexual desires.

Try it God’s way for 30 days and you will be amazed at the difference in your marriage and ultimate happiness. Happily Ever After is possible if you follow God’s plan for marriage.

Finally let me once again reiterate to you women, if you want romance, you need to provide inspiration to your man by giving him sex willingly and lovingly when he needs it. You do not ever put him down for his sexuality. Women inspire men to romance and they are also the one’s who kill romance by their own actions. I ask you directly, what are you doing to romance your husband? Answer the question to yourself honestly. If you need to make improvements, make them and reap the benefits. Romance can’t be all one-sided.

For those of you who are Christians and attend church, go to your pastor and ask him why he has not taught or preached on these issues. He is responsible for teaching the whole Bible, not just selectively ignoring issues. Church is the most appropriate place to learn about sex. All you ever hear in church is negatives about sex. This is wrong. We need to be teaching people what a wonderful gift from God that sex is and can be.


10 Steps Towards Respecting Your Husband (Even when you don’t feel like it)

August 22, 2010

This is a great guest post by a woman who gets it. It always works better when you follow God’s plan for marriage. I am on a goal to expose rampant misandry (reverse sexism by women against men) in our society. I have been called all manner of vile names by women in pursuit of this goal and mission. I suggest that women take care of their husbands needs. First respect is the number one need men have even more than sex. Too many women feel that taking care of a husband’s needs are at the bottom of her priority list and have no compunction about forcing him to do without against his will. I would be the first to agree that no woman should be forced to have sex against her will but women feel that it is perfectly permissable to force the husband to do without sex against his will.

This post was found by punching into my search engine “reasons not to put children’s needs ahead of husbands” I commend it to your understanding of marriage.

I invite comments by both men and women,

With downcast eyes, Kathryn confided, “I have a hard time respecting my husband. I want to be obedient to God’s command, but I don’t want to be dishonest to my feelings.”

God doesn’t command a wife to feel respectful toward her husband. She is to be respectful. Her responsibility is to obey God; not her feelings.

A wise woman once told me, “If you want a truly fine husband, respect him at the level at which you want him to reach. A man will usually not rise above the level at which his wife respects him.” This is a general principle, not a hard and fast rule because God does not put accountability or responsibility for a man’s character on his wife. Nevertheless, strong evidence indicates a woman holds great power to make or break a man. In his book His Needs, Her Needs,

Willard Harley amends the saying “Behind every great man is a great woman” to “Behind every great man is an admiring wife.”

Something in a man needs the respect of his wife. He thrives and grows toward godliness when his need is fulfilled. This explains why God emphatically says, “The wife must see to it that she respects her husband” (Ephesians 5:33 NASB).

10 Steps Towards Respecting Your Husband

1.Pray for him daily and trust God to answer your requests.
◦Pray for his well-being, wisdom, protection, blessings, guidance, knowledge, spiritual maturity, success, purity, strength in temptation, etc.
◦Look for God’s answers to your prayers.
◦Thank God for working in your family.
◦Thank God for your husband.
◦Pray for your attitude.

2.Remember that God has put your husband in a position of leadership, and He will lead you through your husband.

3.Make a list of your husband’s qualities that you appreciate. Review and add to your list regularly.

4.Tell your husband what you appreciate about him. Tell others what you appreciate about him.

5.Don’t criticize your husband to others – especially your children.

6.Look for the positive side of things that you may find irritating. If you find it boring when he spends time telling you about his bad day, remember that at least he is talking to you, spending time with you, sharing his concerns with you, bringing you into his confidence, and giving you the chance to be an encourager and helper.

7.Respond to his loving advances with enthusiasm.

8.If you are concerned about a decision your husband has made, ask him the following:
◦“I’m confused about _________. Can you explain it to me?”
◦“Can we talk about _____? I feel uncomfortable about ______.”
◦Don’t ask: “WHY in the world would you do it that way?” or ask “Why?” in any way that implies you think he is foolish.

9.Respect his likes and dislikes. If he likes a particular food, make a point of serving that regularly. If he hates the color purple, don’t wear purple in his presence. If he likes you to wear perfume, do it.

10.If you find yourself thinking negative thoughts about your husband, stop and choose to think of something else – especially things from your positive quality list.
Remember, God is working on you and your husband. You can both learn from your failures as well as your successes. Give God the freedom to teach your husband through failure. In the same way, give God the freedom to teach you to trust Him through your husband’s failure.


Sex and The Bible

April 15, 2010

 

     Unfortunately, most people have the notion that you are not supposed to talk about sex in church.  As a former minister of youth, I was castigated by some parents for teaching a high school class on the subject of what the bible defines as sexual sin.  I was told:  “you are not supposed to talk about sex in church.”  At a seminar called Total Woman at our church, we had some women object because it contained sexual references and how a woman is supposed to take care of her husband.  This feeling prevails even today in churches.  My question is:  Do you think that God made a mistake?  How about those references in the Bible about sex?  Should we tear those out of the Bible?  Pastors and Sunday school teachers don’t dare teach or preach on the subject.

     Today, we have a 50% divorce rate in the general population and 33% even among Christians.  What is really sad is the research that shows definitively the life-long damage done to children as the result of divorce.  Couples fight about the big three:  money, sex and kids.    The bible is very clear on sexual issues between husband and wife.  Because fighting is common over sex, there is a scripturally mandated ministry in Titus 2:4-5  That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands that the word of God be not blasphemed.  KJV

      Research shows that fully 60% of women only want sex once a week.  Sadly they inflict that schedule on their husbands.  Now I know that there are exceptions and sometimes it is the wife with a high libido and a husband who does not want it as much.  Our purpose is to cover the majority of the people out there.   We will consider what the bible says as we are commanded to do in living our lives.

     It says in Proverbs:  Let thy fountain be blessed:  and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.  Let her be as a loving hind and a pleasant roe;  let her breasts satisfy thee AT ALL TIMES; and be thou ravished ALWAYS with her love.  Most women feel that they have a perfect right to reject her husband’s sexual overtures any time she feels like it.  This is what is taught by the feminists.  On the other hand, when is the last time that you ever saw a feminist point anyone to Jesus?  Is there any thing in the above passage that you could interpret to get that permission?  Ravished is a biblical word for not only giving your husband sex, but giving him GREAT SEX.  When you give him sex willing and lovingly, it is called appropriately MAKING LOVE  because of the feelings that it engenders on his part.  God made it a powerful bonding agent between a man and a woman.  When you refuse your husband’s sexual overtures, the converse is, you are MAKING RESENTMENT.  Every time he is forced to masturbate to relieve his sexual tensions, you create resentment.  Many times he will resort to pornography for arousal.  The bible forbids us to be a “stumbling block” in Romans 14:13, Mathew 18:7.

     Let the husband render unto the wife due benevelolence; and likewise also the wife unto the husband.  The wife doth not have power of her own body, but the husband:  and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.  Defraud ye not one another, except it be with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, so that Satan tempt you not for your incontinence.  I Corinthians 7:3-5

     If you read this, there is no way that you can interpret that the wife has a right to say no to her husband.  Nevertheless, so many of you do with impunity in defiance of God’s word.

     So many women try to relate to their husband’s sexuality through their own.  Men’s sexuality is driven by semen build-up.  Remember the time when you were pregnant.  It is a fact of life that a pregnant woman has to urinate more often because the baby is pressing on your bladder.  You can’t help it.  Now let us play role reversal here for a minute.  Think about your husband feeling the same way as you do, because that is what a man’s sexual drive feels like.  He does not have a choice when he needs relief.  Let us role play here further.  Imagine that you are in a car with him on a long trip and you are pregnant.  You say; “honey, can you pull over because I have to go to the bathroom.”  Now let us pretend that your husband answers you like so many women answer their husband’s requests for sex:  What you want to go to the bathroom again, is that all you can ever think about?  Do you have a one track mind?  What are you some kind of urination addict? I am tired, I don’t feel like pulling over.  Leave me alone and quit bugging me.  Listen, maybe tomorrow I will pull over and let you go the bathroom.  If men talked that way to their wives there would be such a huge outcry across the land.

     For the most part women want sex once a week.  For the most part men want sex 3-5 times a week.  Let us compromise and say you give it to him 4 times a week.  I can just hear the screams and howls from you women now.  “NO WAY AM I DOING IT THAT OFTEN”.  The average act takes about 30 minutes start to finish.  If you actually gave your husband 4 times a week, that would come to two hours.  Now out of 168 hours in the week, that represents only slightly more than one percent of your time.  I say that if you can’t give your husband 1% of your time to nurture him and love him, your priorities are all wrong.  God wants 10% and you can’t give your husband a lousy 1%?  This is why most men are not very romantic, they figure, why bother?  Most women don’t understand that it is the woman that inspires men to romance by how they treat him.  From the time that you were a little girl, you dreamed about Happily Ever After.  The problem with that dream is that has always been self-centered.  You imagine the prince gazing upon you with rapt attention, but you never understand that the prince has needs that you need to satisfy.  Because you don’t satisfy them, he stops being romantic.

     God in the Old Testament allowed multiple wives and concubines for men to be able to satisfy their generally higher sex drives.  God allowed this so that men would not commit adultery.  Then in God’s progressive revelation, He changed it to where there was one man and one woman and it transitioned in Proverbs 31.  The heart of the husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.  She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.  Proverbs 31:  11-12.  Now many bible translators incorrectly translate the Hebrew word for spoil here as meaning earthly gain.  This is incorrect.  The old fashioned term spoil comes from the spoils of war..  This is where the invading army got to go in and take things from the homes of the killed opposing soldiers.  One of the main things that they took were the women who were then destined to become secondary wives called concubines with a status only slightly above a slave.  When the primary wife refused her husband’s sexual overtures, then it fell to the concubine to satisfy the man’s needs.  Well Proverbs 31 here means that he shall have only one wife, but she is now obligated to satisfy all of his sexual needs.  She honors his trust in her by taking care of him sexually.  It reiterates that she shall do him good and not evil all the days of her life.  How is denying your husband doing him good?

     Finally, as parents and our parents have done, we have put so much emphasis on thou shalt not to daughters, many can’t relax and enjoy their sexuality as the gift that God made it and intended for it.  As a coach, this is a common thing that I work with women on.  Freeing them from inhibitions to enjoying their sexuality.  The bible addresses this issue in part in Hebrews 13:4 where it says:  Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled;  This means that there is nothing that you and your husband can do in bed that is wrong.  You need to relax, enjoy your sexuality and understand that biblically you don’t have the right to say no.  If you do, I promise that you will see your husband be much more attentive and actually develop some romantic tendencies.  Whether or not the relationship succeeds or fails is largely up to you the wife.  I will leave you with one last biblical warning:  “Every wise woman builds her house, but the foolish one plucks it down with her hands.” Proverbs 14:1  The house being referred to here is her husband as in the house of David.  We are not talking about actual construction issues.

     Try it God’s way for 30 days and you will be amazed at the difference in your marriage and ultimate happiness.  Happily Ever After is possible if you follow God’s plan for marriage.
