In this sermon excerpt, J. D. Greear addresses the ironic undervaluing of sex in our seemingly oversexed culture. Read part of the excerpt below:
But something within us just can’t seem to accept the idea that sex is just physical. After all, if sex is just physical, why is it that rape is reported so much less than other physical abuse? If sex is just physical, why is it that adultery is so devastating to a relationship—moreso than other types of betrayal? If sex is just physical, why is that when someone sits in my office and says, “Pastor, I’ve never told anyone this before,” that 99% of the time, it’s something sexual? Our experience screams that sex can’t just be physical. Something bigger is going on.
