We are dating now youtube

Solomon’s story shows us that if you are holding out for a human hero, you are bound to be disappointed.Solomon, the wisest man in the whole world, became obsessed with money, sex, and power.

Using sex in a way for which it was not designed leaves us feeling guilty, battling shame and isolation.

It doesn’t help that in our churches we often have a conspiracy of silence, in which sex is never mentioned.

Or if it is, we make it seem as if you are the only person in the room to struggle with your sexuality while everyone else is as pure as the driven snow. We are all captivated by false idols for whom we are busy building temples.

Because our sexuality is such a deep part of our identity, that false worship is going to appear clearly in our sexual brokenness.

On a human level, those reasons seemed wise, designed to give security to the royal house.

But acquiring one thousand lovers is a sign of a heart determined to be self-sufficient and independent of God.

Unlike many contemporary love songs, the Song of Solomon does not pretend that we live in a world untainted by sin and brokenness.

Of course, the Song does celebrate what is good and wholesome in sex.

Human wisdom tells us that our sexuality is just another natural appetite to be fulfilled, like eating or drinking. Human wisdom says, “God is against sex and is trying to restrict you from finding true fulfillment.” God’s word actually tells us that sex is a beautiful and wonderful gift of God within marriage.
