Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled.

Sunday, December 15, 2019 

Someone posited that all anal sex is bad, even when practiced between husband and wife.


Anal sex with women would be a reasonable cause of the disease as well; it would further add to the point.

Anal sex between man and woman isn't sodomy and isn't inherently wrong.


It actually is sodomy, and is inherently wrong.

Can you prove that with Scripture?


You don't stick half of the equation to produce into a place where feces comes out of.

That's not Scripture.


Let me go get the scripture from Romans. i

I don't see sodomy mentioned in there.


"For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet." This is pretty much sodomy on a whole.

"Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly." It says likewise and goes on to describe homosexuality. Not anal sex. Romans 1:26-27 means women lying with women, which is "like"wise to men with men.


Why is oral sex not changing the natural use into that which is against nature, but anal is? ii It's not procreative; the mouth is used for speaking and eating.

Because he's making this up based on his own understanding. iii


Why don't you ask God if anal sex is appropriate in a marriage bed.

Okay I will. Oh hey, I have my answer! "Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge." iv God has spoken, anal sex does not defile the marriage bed.


That verse doesn't approve of sodomy. v Song of Solomon is the book of sex. And quite frankly, it's obvious how God designed the human body.

In Sodom, it was homosexual sex. Or would have been anyway. vi Scripture says marriage is "honorable in all" and all includes anal sex. vii Whoremongering is prostitution viii and adultery is sex with someone else's wife.


The context isn't being what goes on in bed; it's about what goes on in life. The preceding verses are about what goes on in life. The subject and context isn't going to talk about what goes on in a marriage bedroom. Nor does it mean it approves of sodomy.

It says the marriage bed is undefiled.


Yeah, being separate from "honorable in all." The context of honorable in all is about everything in life. And yeah, the marriage bed is undefiled until you defile it. There are things you can do to defile a marriage bed. Like swinging.

That's adultery, which is specifically named as an evil thing. Also, sex during menstruation is called an abomination. That is the one exception I can think of.


Seems like this boils down to whether or not straight anal sex is sodomy. If menstruation gets to be an exception due to explicit mention, then anything else explicitly mentioned would as well.

That is my point. Sodomy is never specifically described as anal sex in general. In Sodom, all the men came to have sex with the visiting men.

  1. citing (KJV) Romans 1:

    24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

    25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

    27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

    30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

    31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

    32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

    3 Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.

    4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
