Re: Intimacy is about truth...

I think….it’s the truth. :)

Intimacy is vulnerability without fear.

Re: Marriage Heat Account Deletion -- My feedback

The absolute travesty (and one that I think MH is claiming to try to overcome, albeit incorrectly IMO) is that 99.9% of the time the word sex is spoken from the pulpit or the teaching lectern in church, it is attached some form of sin. After continuously hearing it this way, it becomes naturally ass...

Re: Least Common Denominator

I call it “the tyranny of the low desire”. Schnarch had a more academic description. But yes, it is a definite true dynamic in most every relationship. But it doesn’t have to be tyrannical. It only gets that way if it is allowed to.

Re: A Time Traveller's Sexual Ethics

Perhaps it would be better said that “God exists outside of our human conceptualization of time.” The scripture makes the statement that “a day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as a day” to God. I don’t doubt that God has some concept of time as we experience it, but He also transcends th...

Re: The Sexually Obedient Wife

Eventually she learned to trust that I loved her more than sex, but I had to put my own desires down for a while because she and our marriage were more important. A husband's ability to understand this statement, embrace it, feel how it feels to his wife, is imperative if he ever wants her to embra...

Re: A Time Traveller's Sexual Ethics

Consider: Heb 13:2  Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. I have wondered if angels could traverse time? Good question! Angels are immaterial beings and hence are not impacted by gravity. Gravity and time are related (the passage of time...

Re: The Sexually Obedient Wife

Sacrifice and submission…neither one works on it’s on. Neither one is easy. I see it kinda like a two-part epoxy. The two parts separate won’t bond anything. And, if you mix the parts in the wrong proportions, you get a weak bond, if any. But if you mix it in the right ratio correctly, thenreally st...

Re: Porn use / healing

I appreciate everyone’s input on my questions. It is interesting to see how varied the opinions are. This is something recent not in the past. I’m trying to figure out how to deal with my end of it. I appreciate your time. What is your current mindset on it? Is trust of him the issue? Is it self-do...
