The Joy of Sex According to Paul.

Now Paul starts to address some of the things the Corinthians wrote to him about. Apparently, they had a lot of questions about sex. Paul tells them that if people can't stop themselves from getting it on with each other, then they might as well get married. Once you're married, men and women shouldn't withhold sex from each other.  Of course, Paul isn't thrilled to have to give this advice. He's a bachelor and thinks everyone should be shrugging off sex like him. But he realizes that not everyone is going be able to live up to his level of awesomeness. Paul's advice is to stay that way. But if you can't keep it in your pants then, by all means, put a ring on it. Rules for Marriage. Christians who are married to unbelievers shouldn't divorce their spouses. As long as the non-believer of the pair is fine living with a Christian, they should be cool with it. Yes, in the last chapter, having sex with a prostitute made you a prostitute, but, don't worry: a Christian spouse actually makes their non-believing spouse holy. Paul thinks that Christians should just let it be. More advice,  this time for virgins! Thinking about getting married? Think again. Married people have all kinds of problems.  But unmarried people can just keep their eyes on the prize—life with God. That is, when they're not thinking about sex. The end of the world is coming soon, Paul explains. So soon, none of this stuff is going to matter. God is going to swoop in and wipe it all away, and give faithful Christians their reward. That's why it's better to keep your focus on the Big Guy instead of trying to snag Mr. Right. Remember, if you're just some sex fiend who can't control himself, go ahead and get married. You're more blessed when you stay single, Paul says. (Typical man. Won't commit.)
