Yes our "sinful " nature is against abstinence, and sex is healthy for two married people who don't have any std's, and remain faithful, but again our sin nature is against anything healthy or pure.
With all due respect, Gtown, how can you post these things when you carried on an extramarital affair that resulted in a child out of wedlock? You speak of the importance of marriage and of remaining faithful yet you, yourself, did not honor the vows you've taken with your wife. Considering the history you've shared about it, it seems that you only had an epiphany about how wrong it was to betray your wife when your mistress became pregnant. If it weren't for that, you've given the impression that if you didn't get caught up, you'd still be carrying on with the affair.<quoted text><snipped>
Maybe others can read this, since you don't care for normal marriage or kids.
Yes, it's great that you found God, yet I find it rather interesting that you don't seem to see the hypocrisy in you preaching about the sanctity of marriage and of sin in general given what you've shared about your past.
