Today’s films show a different meaning of sex, though. The movies “Fifty Shades of Grey” and its sequel “50 Shades Darker” are just some of the many movies that twist the real meaning of sex. And though the “Fifty Shades” series isn’t a pornographic movie, it still shows a dark meaning of sex, thus making it incomparable to what is written in the book of Song Song of Solomon. Here are three points on sex from the book of Song of Solomon:
Sex is Good
Christian churches have always been labeled as the “anti-sex” but in reality, Christianity has always celebrated the joy of the union of two human bodies. The book is unashamed about physical passion and shows sex as a blessing.
Sex is not Violent
The most unbiblical part in the “Fifty Shades” is that cruelty and abuse in sex are normal and desirable. But in the Song of Solomon, the pleasure of sex is simply pleasure without needing to hurt or tie up someone.
It honors Love
When we truly love someone, it is about selfless giving. Love isn’t self-seeking. The Song of Solomon is surely written by someone who experienced the greatest joy of human love. Sex is all about love and not about lust.
Sex in the Song of Solomon is surely a kind of love’s expression of two lover’s unity. It is far from the definition of love this world has been displaying to us.
