Well, it has become apparent to me that sex in fact is much more than physical actions. As was mentioned, yes sometimes sex can be just pure meaningless sex. Even sometimes when people recognize the true meaning behind sex and understand the deepness it represents but chose to ignore it to engage in just physical actions it becomes meaningless sex. However, it is for those times of strong spiritual connection between couples that makes sex important. In some cases sex is just pure sex.
The couple in the Garden of Eden was a man and a woman, not two men or two women. If God intended two men or two women to be together he would have put two men or women in the Garden of Eden, giving them both the ability to have children or to reproduce with the same sex, but that didn't happen. God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve, for the procreation of life. God wanted man and woman to reproduce with one another in order for the human race to continue. In the bible days, Jesus Christ did a lot of teaching about marriages and the sacred bond involved between a man and a woman.
Marriage is part of the created natural order, we were meant to be together. God intended for us to be united with the opposite sex since the beginning of time. The book of Genesis tells us: "God created man in his image, He created him in the image of God, man and woman, He created them. God saw what he had done and said, "This is good, it is not good that man should be alone. "(McLachlan 5).
Marriage under Fire We must remember what marriage is for and why God has given it the design he did. Marriage is to be between a man and a woman. This goes back to the beginning of time and why God created woman in the first place; “to provide a helpful mate for Adam; it was not good that man should be alone” (Genesis 1:18, 20-23). So we see that marriage was God's idea, not men. Knowing this, why in the world would we as Americans give that right to homosexual couples?
Discrimination of women in religion is alive as ever, and booming in today’s religion based world. Adam and Eve, Marriage rules and over all treatment of women all favor men with in the bible, It is clear that a man is destined to rule over a woman, and with Gods word as a backing how could a christan lady escape. It starts with the creation of man according to the New Testament which was interrupted from the Old Testament predating the coming of Jesus. And so on the sixth day god created man, “from that man God made a woman. He gave them only one rule that you may not eat from the forbidden tree.
Homosexuals are not only discriminated and treated badly but they are also denied the rights that should lawfully be theirs. Many Americans see no reason why Gays should be granted the right to marry. They base their argument on the bible and quote certain scriptures. The most reiterated bible passage is that "God created a man and a woman" however it is completely taken out of context. When a person states this they are indicating that the union of a man and a woman was intended strictly for the purpose of procreation.
By looking at religion and its views, one can see just how hard it would be to argue in the pro-choice position of this debate. First of all, I must start with the truth…the Bible does not directly say anything about abortion. The actual word is not mentioned at all. During biblical times, abortion was an unthinkable act and “there was no need to mention it in the criminal code” (Anderson 1). “Children were viewed as a gift or heritage from the Lord… the Scriptures state…that God opens and closes the womb and is sovereign over conception” (Anderson 1).
The creation myths of the Old Testament demonstrate discrepancies in the first and second chapter of Genesis. The myth of Lilith is a rejected myth of the Christian tradition. Yet, the Bible gives evidence to support the existence of Lilith as the first woman and Eve as her replacement. The creation myths will be analyzed to show that Lilith’s existence is supported in the Bible and that her legend is compatible with Jewish and Christian views. In Genesis chapter one, man and woman are created simultaneously.
Responsible use paper The bible has been the center of many debates and has been used correctly and incorrectly. My objective in this paper is to illuminate the many flaws in the century-old yet ever present interpretation of the bible that suggests women are lesser than men. I will also commend and explain the use of the bible during the civil rights movement. Some people believe that women were created for the sole purpose of assisting men. They justify their position by citing Genesis chapter two, in which God takes a rib from Adam and creates Eve.
Mormons believed that when a couple or family is sealed in the temple of the Lord by one holding God’s priesthood keys of sealing, that the bond is not "until death do us part," but rather for all eternity. If this is true, then when a man is widowed and he marries a second wife, he then has two wives. The Mormons believe that if a man can have multiple wives in heaven, then the same should be true on Earth. "According to the Lord’s law of marriage, it is lawful that a man have only one wife at a time unless by revelation the Lord commands plurality of wives in the new and everlasting covenant" (McConkie5770). If a woman who is sealed in the temple is widowed, she not allowed to be resealed: only a man is allowed a plurality of spouses.
