Having made mankind with complementary sexes, male and female, the Lord then declared that they were to also have a sexual purpose – to reproduce and to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth (Gen. 1:28).

We humans were designed by our Maker, the Lord Jesus Christ, to be sexual. That is, we were created and intended by our Creator to be a sex – male or female – and to be appropriately sexual with a fourfold purpose. After GOD had created all things in heaven and on earth He rested after creating the first man and woman in His image – His crowning act of creation…[CONTINUE]
