Jesus said, 'And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.' This applies to all areas of life not just sex, but if you
are on this newsgroup to 'be set free' then for your sake and for God's sake' do the reading and studying and fill your mind and
heart with the truths about the real History of the Bible and the real History of why the Christian church became anti-sexual.
Don't just go by feelings and some nice experiences and a few verses and few interpretations of others, know the whole truth
from studying the true History. Don't be lazy, as so much of it has already been set out before you. So much has already been
written, already been researched, so that all we have to do is read it, test it, believe it, do it, live it and pass on these truths to
others for their liberation.
Let's not be shallow like the weak kneed, gutless whimpy church people which leads to shallow temporal faith, but let's have real
faith, real hard-on faith that can pentetrate and endure and make fruitful. Let's have balls and ovaries, and fight for these truths
by doing our part, by using our minds before we engage our bodies. For in this way we can put all our heart, soul, body and
MIND behind our lovemaking, and make real sparks and create real heat and passion .... the PASSION OF CHRIST FOR HIS
So do read or print out this 31 page 'Christianity and Sex' research document. And do take the time to study it, so that thse
sayings and truths 'sink down in your ears' into your brain and heart. If you want real freedom, then liberate your mind first
and then your body will follow without doubts and without a split in a unified body and spirit. For we have to unite our spirits
with our bodies so that they are ONE. This so we aren't under the false doctrine that the flesh is evil but that flesh and spirit
together are divine. Pleasure is not intrinsically wrong, the Lord created sex to be beautiful and
pleasureable. So let's understand it, so we can enjoy it, without numbing our senses with hang-ups from false Church doctrines.

For as you do this... you should get mad as heaven against the church perverts that changed the beauty and joy of sex into a
supposed filthy degrading act. This probably because in their patriacrhial society, showing a need for a woman, would debase
their pride and would be extremely humbling for them in their position. IE. They wrote against sex because they were against the
equality and equal status of women. So get upset, sisters, and stand up for your rights as equals and understand where so many
of the Church fathers went wrong.
"""Many contemporaries of Saint Augustine were equally cool towards human coitus, and therefore cold towards women in
general. Some early monastics became so anti-sex that they all but declared God an unfit Creator, who obviously should have
invented a better way of dealing with the problem of procreation. Arnobius (d. c. A.D. 317) called intercourse filthy and
degrading, and stated that it would be blasphemous even to imagine that Jesus was "born of vile coitus and came into the light
as a result of the spewing forth of senseless semen, a product of obscene gropings"(13) (Brundage, 1987: 64).
Methodius thought sex was "unseemly," and Ambrose, a "defilement." Saint John Chrysostom, the "golden-mouthed" orator of
the fourth century, had little golden to say about the fair sex in general: "Among all savage beasts, none is found as harmful as
Tertullian was so repulsed by sex he publicly renounced his own sexual relationship with his wife and taught that sexual
intercourse drives out the Holy Spirit. Women, he declared, are "the devil's door: through them Satan creeps into men's hearts
and minds and works his wiles for their spiritual destruction."(14) Saint Thomas Aquinas in the thirteenth century showed little
improvement in attitude, saying that "Woman is defective and accidental . . . a male gone awry . . . the result of some weakness
in the father's generative power" (cited in Rice, 1990: 138). A teaching common during that time taught that women and the
lower half of men were created by the Devil. (15)"""
And as you can see, all the quotes are references and listed at the END, so you can go further and deeper into these truths,
descerning them for yourself. Will you do this, will you even read this historical review, or will you stagnate and do nothing and
For by this time you should have established a rock hard basis for your sexual activity and should be building upon it, if you are
to have a sexual house that can stand against the wiles of the evil church and their insane worldly doctrines. You should already
be so fluent in Biblical references and verses that you can pass on these truths to those that ask you why you are so liberated.
And so more historical references and quotes and details should make you even stronger in having the FAITH to ENTER IN.
But if all you want is a few pics, a mere chat, a little inspiration, a once in a while roll in the hay, a little indulgence in a shady
area with another Christian or heathen, THEN go ahead and do nothing, and just relax, sit back. Don't engage your mind or
heart, or make any effort to progress mentally or spiritually. Go ahead or should I say, Stay Behind. For Real Christians study
to show themselves approved unto God, They search out truths so they can live them out in the real world. for the Truth only
can make us Free, ONLY if we take the time and make the effort to find them and study the Lord's Truths.
