Yes, but its that initial "lust" that gets you together in the first place; there HAS to be that attraction there before anything else can happen, and eventually love takes over.. And you are right, the body is the Temple, however did not Yeshua cleanse it forever?? I know that is not a license to sin, and there is no way I would jump into bed with a guy without "feelings" being there; but im not going to feal guilty about when "things happen" either...

Sex isn't for bad, but lust is: Too much sugar may be harmful as well, as it is with sex.
As we can observe from animals, they do not lust for sex, they only do it for reproductive purposes.They do not lust for it, but some people do and that can be dangerous.

I think it goes that much deeper for humans.. If you want to be like a dog humping everything in site then go ahead lol, see how far that gets ya... But seriously, sex is ALWAYS better in a loving, commited relationship, and I have enough experience to say that is true.. Stop looking for quantity and look for quality... You will be happier... But a little lust is no bad thing.. Like you said, its the engine that makes toes curl and beds break lol..
Genesis 19:4-5 confirms the verdict as to the sexual sin of Sodom and its end (RSV): "But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; and they called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may know them (NIV: can have sex with them , NJB: can have intercourse with them)."
So you're telling me that it's legitimate to cherry-pick translations and interpretations of the bible? Because...that's exactly what you're doing...
The bible is a whole...accept it as a whole...or deny it as a whole...the ball is in your court...
The Holy Spirit says to me that Sodom and Gomorroh were destroyed because they were in sin...they were apart from God. It says that it doesn't matter WHAT sin...because sin is sin and it all leads down the road of destruction....
Does that clarify?
But let's be honest here.
Was it because of sex? Or something else?

Let me ask you a question. Which one would you follow more: the wrong interpretation of the story of Sodom and Gomorrah or what Jesus said?
But I say to you, Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who despitefully use you and persecute you, so that you may become sons of your Father in Heaven. For He makes His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.
Therefore be merciful, even as your Father is merciful. Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you shall be forgiven.
For what does it matter what sin they were destroyed for? The moral stands....Walk with God..or walk with destruction...

Don't pretend for a moment that there is only love without judgment....for in that moment you will surely lose yourself.
