God & Marriage

Marriage: An Institution of God

Understanding Gods heart for marriageThe Pure Bed is a resource for married men and women.  As such, the site is an unapologetic reflection of our faith in God and our understanding of His will for sexual intimacy in the context of marriage.  What follows is a basic description of our beliefs with respect to that will.  

The Pure Bed believes that God instituted marriage as a mechanism to reproduce and nurture life and to afford humanity a higher order of relationship that would be substantially representative of our relationship with Him. Marriage is the intimate union of two into oneness (one man and one woman for one lifetime).  Marriage is the means by which family is created and nurtured.

"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh” (Gen. 2:24) is the understanding Adam has of God’s purpose for this new relationship he’s entered. This union is expressed and experienced uniquely during sexual intercourse when two bodies are joined together. The relationship is based on closeness…intimacy.

Tested by the ages, the family is the cornerstone of any enduring society.  When God's order is replaced, we experience a breakdown of society. God’s order is perfect, tested by time.  How can something perfect be made better? Adultery, divorce, promiscuity, and the breaking up of families all lead to unhappiness and are, often, the result of a discounting of the importance of marriage today.

If we accept the importance of marriage to the family structure, it stands that we must not ignore issues as they arise or lightly abandon marital relationships. We must also acknowledge that marriage IS NOT a primary means of happiness. Fulfillment in marriage is made possible by a realization of why marriage exists, a commitment to building strong relationships within the family, and recognition that personal spiritual, mental, and, even physical development are critical.

God instituted marriage as a mechanism to reproduce and nurture life and to afford humanity a higher order of relationship that would be somewhat representative of our relationship to Jesus Christ.  Is everyone to be married?  No.  However, we believe that everyone who is to experience the blessings and benefits of family MUST be married to satisfy God's will and to afford the family unit the best opportunity for optimal success.  

The Pure Bed believes that marriage is the only appropriate context for sexual intimacy in God's sight.

Some Bible references:

 

Read Gen. 2:18-24, Matthew 19:4-6, Eph 5:31-6:3. How and why God created marriage.

Read I Corinthians 13, and Titus 2:1-8. Nurturing family.

Read Song of Solomon (entire Bible book) and I Corinthians 7:1-9. Intimacy.

 

 

 

 

Sexual Intimacy: A Gift of God

Married CoupleThe legalistic restraint of sexual passion IS NOT Christian.  The fullest designed human expression of it is what God intended for Christian couples desirous to do His will!  If this statement makes you nervous, get help immediately…from the Bible!

Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for his love is better than wine.” So begins “the song of songs”, the 22nd book of the Bible so-named by its writer.  What is this compilation of erotic love poems doing in the sacred writ? 

His left hand should be under my head, and his right hand should embrace me” [8:3]   “He shall lie down all night betwixt my breasts” [1:13])  Such passages betray the cultural acceptance of sensuality among the Hebrew.  It contradicts the artificial restraints placed upon Christian married couples who see sexual yearning as something to be highly regulated rather than uniquely enjoyed and exploited. 

 ”I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste” [2:3], says the passionate Shulamite woman.   Her beloved likens her to a palm tree.   ”I will take hold of the boughs thereof,” and “thy breasts shall be as clusters of the vine” (7:8).   Her beloved has “gone down into his garden, to the beds of spices, to feed in the gardens, and to gather lilies” [6:2].   Clearly, sex was meant to be a full body experience engaging all of the human senses for physical delight.

The Biblical book, so often cast by theologians as being allegoric of God’s relationship to Israel and/or Christ’s to the Church, unapologetically narrates erotic love in most passionate terms.  We need not ‘excuse’ its place in the Bible by assigning some ‘higher’ purpose to it.  It is what it is.   Sex is glorious to God.  God created it! 

Sex is intended to be a joyous celebration of love in wedded union.

The Shulamite bride of this narrative asks the north and south winds to “blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits” [4:16].   “I am come into my garden,” her lover responds, “I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey; I have drunk my wine with my milk” [5:1].   And the woman says, “I went down into the garden of nuts (NRSV ‘the nut orchard’) . . . to see whether the vine flourished (NRSV ‘whether the vines had budded’)”. [6:11]   If only she could take him home, she says later, she would cause him “to drink of spiced wine of the juice of my pomegranate” [8:2].

Being married is a tremendous experience.  Everything about it can be also…including sexual intimacy between a husband and wife.  In marriage, we must enjoy sex as we enjoy eating. 

And apparently, these two enjoy eating during sex!

Often referred to as a Christian sex site, Christian sex shop or store, The Pure Bed's mission is to provide an alternative to husbands and wives who desire to enhance sexual intimacy in their marriages without the pornographic influence of typical adult stores.  Our lingerie are presented WITHOUT live or nude models.  We do not sell, display or link to pornography.
