Would one of you wonderful people explain to me why sex is seen as shameful, even in wedlock? Beyond that, why sex out of wedlock is considered sinful?
This is a curiosity of mine. It is not meant to offend, and I mean absolutely no disrespect, it is simply a question I know that ONE of you will answer satisfactorily for me.
On another note, I am not Christian, but I respect the religion. Looking at it with a critical eye, I have to ask why certain things in the Bible are still considered sins today, while certain other things remain purposefully ignored. (IE, wearing gold, eating shellfish, working on the sabbath are all sins that are ignored by most Christians today).
I just was wondering what your rules are of which sins are "outdated" and which are timeless, so to speak.
Your answers, opinions, and input on this subject is welcome and very much appreciated!
And once again, I seriously mean no disrespect.
