Release Date: November 23, 2015
Addresses the often unhealthy and troublesome relationship between sex and religion, covering such issues as gay rights, reproductive rights, and abortionPeople are constantly judged for their sexual choices, their frequency of sexual activity, their selection of partners, and their decisions regarding birth control, and much of this judgment stems from the element of culture perhaps most preoccupied with sex: religion. Focusing principally on Christianity, Come Lord Jesus examines the arguments religious moralizers and sanctimonious politicians make to condone or condemn certain sexual practices and lifestyles. But do they even get it right? What does scripture really say about the how, when, why, and with whom of sex? Is homosexuality really an abomination? Is abortion murder? Is premarital sex a sin? The answers may surprise you: the Bible does not always make the claims those who cite it say it does. In fact, the Bible often says nothing at all about many of the practices and lifestyles the faithful argue so vociferously for, or against. By setting the record straight with regard to what the Bible does and does not say about what people do behind closed doors, this book offers highly compelling arguments for those who want to keep religion and government off their bodies and out of their bedrooms."
