I have to agree with the author that some of the theories made by people don’t really seem to be very good interpretations of the text. Simply because most of those less popular theories only seem to look at certain parts of the scripture and miss the whole idea of the greater picture. I have to disagree with his straight analysis of the text in that the interpretations seemed to take most of the scripture for face value and sought no other insight in to the text. In my own view, I think that there would be a deeper level to the text than simply an admonition against sex before marriage or even just a tribute to passionate love. That aspect didn’t really seem to get touched on in this article, but it did give some good examples of possible interpretations that I may not have seen before. Source 4: Hollis, Harry N.

This article focuses on scripture with an emphasis on God’s interaction with people and God’s potential view on sexuality. It goes into a lot of detail starting with the beginnings of Man according to God’s will and continues throughout the Bible using relevant scriptures that can be interpreted accordingly. Some basic, key elements brought to light in this text are the themes of creation by God, judgment of God, and redemption in God. There are several subcategories within these basic themes, but the main point that the author comes to conclusion with is that God as “Creator, Judge, and Redeemer” will form a theology that brings “dignity, pleasure, and meaning to sexual behavior.” I like how the author divides a lot of the themes into smaller categories that are very basic but to the point. It is very successfully portrays the possible themes of sexuality and deeper

meanings in the scripture. The idea of sexuality with dignity, pleasure, and meaning are very interesting ideas to me and I plan to look into this more as I continue my research and pose an answer to my question.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
