Anyway, we were talking about whether lust between spouses could be a problem in normal Christianity, and I found a text to back up this theory. It is not, I emphasize, from the Bible itself. It's from Saint Augustine, one of the major theologians of Western Christendom. He writes:
"It is, however, one thing for married persons to have intercourse only for the wish to beget children, which is not sinful: it is another thing for them to desire carnal pleasure in cohabitation, but with the spouse only, which involves venial sin."
Rhyme of the day:
Augustine clearly is vexed
That we're so highly sexed.
The quoted text is on this page under the heading: Chap. 17.
