Seeking to “free” sexual love from old restraints, we’ve “freed” it from its meaning, responsibility, and exaltation.

  1. I think if I was advising a young believer about say promiscuous sex, I would want to use other language. Exaltation – he will have no problem seeing that in such sex. Responsibility – that will sound too killjoy (it may be true but it will not be effective as advice). Meaning – that is more promising if we can spell it out.

    I think I would take him (yes even a man) straight to the Song of Songs
