Sex is more than just a physical act. There is also a deep spiritual aspect to sex. But you probably knew that already, didn't you? Or at least you may have had an inkling of it in your soul.
Whenever two bodies engage in sex, their souls are also united. Why would that be? Well....simply put, God made sex. You and I didn't create it. If you were only a body and not also a soul, then sex would only be physical. Memo to you: "Your soul is immortal and will never cease to exist, no matter what you do with your body." So....we don't get to dictate to God where the boundaries for sex are to be set. That's His call, and His alone.
You have probably heard the saying, "He who has the gold makes the rules." That may often be the way it plays out on earth, but I have another one for you. "He who created man's body and soul gets to establish the sexual boundaries of right and wrong." I am talking about a universal code of conduct that is not based on your strongest sexual desires, but rather, upon God's authoritative Word.
What makes one sexual relationship right and the other wrong has nothing to do with personal preferences. It has everything to do with how the Creator defines it and where He set the bar when He made sex. When man in essence attempts to lower God's bar and ignore God's commands, his soul suffers even more than his body. That is a fact, not because I say it or you say it....but because God has clearly addressed the issue of sexual conduct in the Scriptures.
Sex is occurring right now among many people all over the world. When two people engage in sex, their physical bodies are obviously in one specific geographic location. It is a location which is visible to the human eye. On the other hand, their two souls are in a "place" that is invisible to the human eye.
So where is that place that souls go during sex? Actually, there are three places souls can go....and only three. While their bodies are united in a visible geographic location, their souls are united in an invisible place....but a place that is, nevertheless, just as real.
