Define human sexuality, marriage and family (a) Human sexuality is the physical or physiological characteristics that make one a male or female. This is determined by roles and cultural factors of an individual society.

(b) Marriage is a covenant or legal union of a man and woman of which the two become husband and wife. From a theological perspective, human sexuality in Scripture is predicated on the pronouncement that the human species is created in the image and likeness of God (Gen ).

Many and bitter have been the arguments over the specific meaning of the term "image of God.". The Biblical Design for Human Sexuality by Rich Deem Introduction. There are many misunderstandings about what Christianity teaches about human sexuality and sexual relationships. During the Victorian era, it was claimed that all sexual acts were sinful, unless they.

The Anglican Church teaches that human sexuality is a gift from a loving God designed to be between a man and a woman in a monogamous lifetime union of marriage.

Use of pornography and other sexual sins are rampant in our culture and in the church. Many have concluded that such behavior or at least the lust that drives them is fundamentally an unsolvable. Use Biblical principles to build a strong Christian marriage that will thrive in a society where nearly half of all marriages end in divorce.

Our marriage resources include books on the challenges of keeping marriages alive and range from romance and sexuality.

Informed by sociology, psychology, and theology, this updated edition of an established textbook investigates how human sexuality originates both biologically and socially.

Laying the groundwork for a normative Christian interpretation of sexuality, this work explores what authentic sexuality looks like as well as forms of "inauthentic sexuality" such as sexual harassment, pornography, and rape.
