Cleaning Up Your Language

Did you know that there's one safe room in your house where you can swear all you like? Apparently so, according to Thomas Weeks III, Juanita Bynum's estranged husband:

What is this guy even talking about? The marriage bed should be undefiled...that has nothing to do with the bedROOM itself...whatever.

I just had to post a link to this. I don't have any idea what this guy is talking about, yet I disagree with everything he says. I don't think I've ever felt quite that way before.

"Ya'll don't hear me right now." Uh, no, I do hear you, but I haven't understood a word you've said. Undefiledness? Make the world a defiled place so the bedroom has no special place? Huh?

Are these people shaking their heads (side to side)because they agree? How terrible. Not sure about that "don't take your salvation into the bedroom" comment. Just goes to show you how many idiots get access to a pulpit.

Evidently you don't know the Word of GOD. The only place that is undefiled is the one place that sex usually takes place and with the only people that God permits to have sex (married individual). This is suppose to be the place where you can get kinky and it's okay. Not outside the bedroom, means not outside your marriage. Get some revelation of the Word before you pass judgement.

You are right, anonymous, we should check the Word of God...

Gal 5:16-24
"But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires."

Hmm.. I'm reading alot about self-control and getting rid of ALL the works of the flesh: passions, impurities, sexual immoraility, desires, etc... nope... I do not see a marriage or bedroom exemption. Are we supposed to live by the Spirit always or by the Spirit in public and in the Flesh in private... hmm... Spirit always. The Flesh is to be crucified!

Score one for marital purity.

Oh... and the "undefiled" verse has nothing to do with the marriage bed being always pure. It is a warning to keep it pure.

Heb 13:4 "Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous."

So the marriage bed is only undefiled if we keep it from being defiled. It is not a blank check, it is an exhortation. Look, there are two warnings at the end of the verse: sexual immorality and adultery.

Are you kidding me! I can't believe you spend your time with such small issues. This will not make or break anyone's salvation.....apparantly you think so? It seems to me that you should spend your time improving yourself and stop trying to improve everyone else.........There is such a thing called, interpretation.
