Sex and Sexuality are Created by God, Gender Roles are Determined by God, not Humankind.

The modern world, and in indeed the world as always has treated what it thinks to be good as what which it creates, and that which is bad as that which God creates.

The world treats sex and sexuality as that which it creates, and thinks itself entitled to determine how it should deals with sex and sexuality, rather as that which is created by God. This is especially the case with modern western secular society, which perverts literally everything, and in particular, everything relating to sex, sexuality and gender roles. 

In doing so, it thinks itself so "enlightened", but just deludes itself in thinking so. One needs to simply look at all the social and family problems in the modern west, to know there is something wrong with the way modern western society deals with sex, sexuality and gender roles.

Genesis 2:7- 25 tells us that God created Man, and made Woman as Man's help meet, and created sex:

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
11 The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;
12 And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone.
13 And the name of the second river is Gihon: the same is it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.
14 And the name of the third river is Hiddekel: that is it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates.
15 And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
18 And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
19 And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

It is clear that God made Woman as a help meet for Man (Genesis 2:18-23). It is also clear that a man shall leave his parents to meet his wife to become one flesh, not the woman who leaves her parents to meet her husband to become one flesh (Genesis 2:23-25), that is to be in conjugal union, that is, by the act of sex. The order in the wording of verse 24 is inspired, and by no accident. 

These are foundational truths that are neglected and very poorly understood in the modern Church. This has led to much confusion about how Christians should not only handle romantic relationships, but get into such relationships in the first place. It has also led to much confusion about not how to fulfill proper Biblical gender roles, but to understand them.

Many in the modern western Church are very influenced by modern secular culture, in all aspects, but especially in relation to gender roles. This, I believe is the combination of faulty understanding of Biblical gender roles, owing to a lack of a proper understanding by church pastors themselves, and propaganda from the culture, specifically feminist propaganda.

Sexuality is also intrinsically related to gender roles, as God has created male and female sexuality, each of which is to fulfill the roles given to man and woman.


These articles may come as a shock to many Christians, particularly the more conservative, frigid or prudish ones. However, if you really think about it, it is true that not only are husbands and wives obliged to engage in sexual intercourse with one another (1 Corinthians 7:3-5), but that God commands wives to ravish their husbands sexually (Proverbs 5:15-20):

Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well.
16 Let thy fountains be dispersed abroad, and rivers of waters in the streets.
17 Let them be only thine own, and not strangers' with thee.
18 Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.
19 Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe; let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; and be thou ravished always with her love.

This command is part of fulfilling the commandment of submission by wives to husbands:

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

Marriage is not a contract like the world thinks where there are conditions for terminating the contract. It is the union of a man and his wife to become one flesh (Genesis 2:24). That is, marriage in the eyes of God necessarily requires sexual relations between husband and wife, for it is the consummation of the marriage. A 'marriage' without sexual relations is not marriage in His eyes. It is just a 'relationship'.

Marriage and sex must necessarily come together. Not only is sexual relations outside marriage a vile sin, but that the rejection of sexual relations within marriage is a sin. It violates the God-given order to sex and marriage. 

Modern society separates the two, which has led to perverse consequences, in going against God's design. It not only thinks that fornication and adultery is right. It despises sex within marriage which is at least as perverse as sexual immorality. It thinks that sex within marriage is wrong, evil or irrelevant because it is a 'chore'.

It is indeed an obligation, which is why the unsaved hate the idea of sex within marriage itself. They want nothing but self-centred freedom and 'bodily autonomy'. 

Feminism is largely responsible for the rise of sexual immorality. It is a cause of all social and family problems today. However, to be fair, it is not the only cause. There are other causes which facilitate feminism, such as materialism and liberalism, which are distinguishable from feminism.

Being influenced by the world on sex, sexuality and gender roles will lead to Hell. Do not follow the world on such matters, or any matter, for that matter. Instead, listen only to God, not the world. Reject the world's views on sex, sexuality and gender roles. For God is the One created sex and sexuality, and determines gender roles.
