We live in a world which screams to us about our sexuality. It seems our world says to us over and over that to be human we need to be sexual or at least in a relationship.
This raises a whole hep of questions:
What about mother Theresa who died a virgin. Was she somehow not as human because she never had sex?
What if you have a great life without sex does that mean you are missing out on something?
What if you have sex that is socially, emotionally and psychologically destructive? Does the way we use sex affect our humanity?
The Christian story says that we are sexual but we are more than just sexual creatures. It says we have been created in the image of God and to know him defines what it means to be truly human.
There was a man who lived and walked 2000 years ago and Christians believe that he was the epitome of what it means to be human.
And he didn’t have sex
He wasn’t married
His name was Jesus
Maybe we need to rethink what it means to be truly human.
What do you think?
