As we continue to finish Johnta’s debut album “Love, Sex, & Religion”, I have been pondering this subject and how all three words are connected. So let’s take the word “Love”. God is Love. That’s what I believe whole heartedly. And the love between a man and a women is absolutely necessary. For example the bible says in Genesis 2:18 “It is not good for the man to be alone, I will make a helper who is suitable for him”. Now before you take that and make assumptions let’s break the verse down. “Helper”: In the book of Genesis the word “helper” is used 20 times. 15 of those 20 times is in reference to God. Because God is our ULTIMATE help! The other 5 times it’s in reference to the woman. So when I think of the word “helper” I say that it means that women are supposed to bring the best out of us and/or help us meet our full potential as men. Most women I know are afraid of that word SUBMIT because it means “to accept or yield to a superior force or the authority or will of another person”. And most men abuse that word but, in Ephesians 5:21 it clearly states that “we (husband & wife) submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.” Then it outlines our duties to one another. I know I am getting a little deep but this is going to help me with the process of Johnta’s album so follow me a little while longer. So let’s talk about “sex”. Sexuality is the bond that ties us physically to our spouse. Hence the term “becoming one”. So you have to keep that flame burning hot. Once you get into a groove with your spouse, you have to build on that groove. So when Johnta writes & sings lyrics like “My bedroom must be the church, because you keep calling for Jesus!” He is validating the fact that God is definitely involved when you are making love to your spouse. That’s why I sent that birthday sex tweet out last night. I just feel like you and your spouse should have that “birthday sex” all of the time, not just on the holidays, birthdays, or when there’s a full moon! The whole sitting on my face thing might have been a little over the top but it’s true. There should be no bounderies in that department. It only makes your bond stronger. And there’s proof in the pudding, if you talk to a happily married couple who has been married for awhile, a major key to their happiness is the freedom in the bedroom. Trust me. And this blog has been touching on religion as a whole. It all goes hand in hand. God created everything. Love. Sex. Everything. It is ALL a blessing if we use it correctly.
