Misstep 8 - 'Celibacy is bad for you' (The Plausibility Problem #8)

The Living Out Team
Podcasts 34 mins

Today we unpick some of the cultural assumptions about sex being a need which underpin the idea that celibacy is bad for you. We discuss the problems with the view that sex is the only form of intimacy, sex is just about pleasure and sexual expression is core to our identity.

We examine some faulty interpretations of significant Bible passages on sexual desire and show that the Holy Spirit enables us to live fulfilled lives as celibate people who enjoy God, his people and his creation.
