Christians reject the notion that Jesus and Mary Magdalene could ever possibly be in a relationship on the grounds that Jesus would not want sexual relations with a worldly woman more so his friendship with her was more one of divine pity.
He was trying to transform her life and save her soul. Jesus would never discriminate, Jesus would not look at people the way some christian do when you come to church on Sunday.
A relative of mine is a Minister of Religion. She posits in a conversation we had that she does not support the argument for sex after marriage because couples need to ascertain sexual compatibility before marriage.
She insist that affairs and divorces are prevalent primarily because of bad sex and Christian’s misguided notions about relationships and sex.
Some Christians paint sex as a sinful act and therefore women are less open to gaining pleasure from their experiences and working on maximizing pleasure in their marital bed. Sex is more of a marriage condition and a means of procreation than a fairly human and normal desire.
I placed this topic on a forum on Facebook to find out what other bloggers thought about it and as I had anticipated it became more about defining and valuating my relatives qualification as a minister of religion than discussing the issue at hand. Other Christians were ready to hurl her into hell for misrepresenting the biblical teachings and altering Christendom views to suit secular lifestyle.
Their responses dripped with contempt and I was forced to wonder what percentage of married Jamaican Women were virgins on their Wedding Nights? I hope those sinners throwing stones did not give up the goodies before the pastor pronounced their relationship as sacred before the eyes of God. I beseech-ed them to tell the truth that Jehovah, God, Almighty loved.
I wanted to nip their self righteousness in the bud. I tell my christian relatives that “churchianity” is the central reason the church is not teeming with young people. The hypocrisy within the church is not concealed from this growing, informed generation. The arrogance among church goers is unnerving, Jesus was such a humble individual to begin with, he did not discriminate.
Some profound perspectives were given by respondents such as what if a man test compatibility and then decides that he is not interested in marrying this young woman, how would that look in the eyes of the church? I would think that any woman with an iota of self worth would not sleep with a man; christian or not- if she is not interested in a long term relationship.
You have no control over how someone will treat you or what they would do after they got what they want from you. You have to find someone that is worth risking everything for.
