The @BethMooreLPM tweet in the preceding post inspired some pushback because it is, you know … crazy.
Shirley Taylor recalled some similarly crazy stuff she had heard from a different “spiritual leader.”
I don't get it either, but Mary Kassian said "“If I cherish the true meaning of sex, I will be eager to engage in it in a God-honoring way. I will long to unite with my husband physically to symbolically honor my spiritual longing for Christ."

To her credit, Shirley renounced that teaching.
She said if her husband dies, God would be her spouse? What?
I'm a never married lady who wanted to be married but still find myself single.
I don't consider God "my husband," and I'd rather have an ACTUAL human husband than someone I cannot see / feel / talk face to face with.

But others, just as I said, are made to feel inadequate by the tweet.
I do understand. I yearn to grow to that place, Beth.

I repeat: The 1st-Century Jewish sect that became Christianity was a cult, and the New Testament is the literature of a cult — and the Jesus-first teaching, and the flat-out bizarre Jesus-is-my-sex-partner schtick, are the teachings of a cult. No less than Charles Manson or Warren Jeffs or Bhagwan Rajneesh, the Jesus-cult is threatened by healthy marriages and families — and so its teachings connive against them.
Do your spouse and your children and the dog a favor Sunday morning and go to the park instead.
