Painting God into an ever smaller corner

Sex in (the NIV version of) the bible is mentioned 77 times.  Leviticus is a sex addict’s shopping list.  The OT biblical guys and gals were more adventurous than we think ourselves.  Sex seems to have been their main pastime with anyone and anything (or why the long list).

 

A couple that caught my eye –

“When a man has sexual relations with a woman and there is an emission of semen, both of them must bathe with water, and they will be unclean till evening.”Leviticus 15:18

Bathing in the afterglow more likely (the best way to catch forty-winks I find).  And I read that semen is a great moisturiser – so don’t waste it.  And “unclean till evening” – just when are we talking about having sex – morning or afternoon – and didn’t these guys have jobs to do during the day?

“‘If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.” Leviticus 20:13 [  ]
