Pastor John Piper wrote a column this week titled “Sex Belongs to Believers,” where he asserts that sex belongs to God and anyone who doesn’t believe in God is just prostituting it.
“Sex belongs to Christians. Because sex belongs to God,” he wrote. “If it is used by those who do not believe and know the truth, it is prostituted.”
The pastor also reportedly blamed Hollywood for making sex into a cheap spectator sport — interesting, as the married former religious-right hero Josh Duggar, who also molested his little sisters, recently admitted he is addicted to pornography.
His addiction went so far that he has paid at least two adult film stars to have violent sex with him on multiple occasions.
Piper claims that sex has been stolen from believers, as it is rightfully theirs and no one else's.
“The pleasures of sex are meant for believers. They are designed for their greatest expression by the children of God,” he continued. “He saves His richest gifts for his children. And as we enjoy His gift of sex, we say, by our covenant faithfulness to our spouse, that God is greater than sex. And the pleasures of sex are themselves an overflow of God’s own goodness.”
