06 Sep Darrel Ray: Sex and God – How Religion Distorts Sexuality | The Flipside Podcast #006

Darrel Ray thumbnail

 

 

What is the impact of religion on human sexuality?

 

You see, growing up in the church, I was told all the dos and don’ts of sexuality for “Bible-believing” Christians. Yet, ironically, some of the preachers I’d listen to would contradict one another when it came to “how far” one can go sexually, both before and after marriage. And some would even commit the very “sins” they’d passionately condemn at the pulpit.

 

Why was there so much hypocrisy going on in the church?

And why were so many of my [natural] sexual desires considered “sinful” in the eyes of God?

 

In this episode, I have an honest chat with psychologist and author, Dr. Darrel Ray. And let me tell ya, we don’t shy away from any topics here.

 

So put your kids to sleep (if you have any) … and let’s talk about sex, baby.

 

IN THIS EPISODE, DARREL ANSWERED THE FOLLOWING:

 

• Why are so many people afraid to talk about sex?
• How has religion shaped our culture and sexual development?
• How is religion often an excuse for bad behavior?
• What’s the difference between guilt and shame?
• Why do even non-religious people struggle with guilt and shame when it comes to sexuality?
• Talk about masturbation for a bit. Are there any benefits to it?
• What are some ways parents can address the topic of sex to their kids?
• What have you discovered in your research about porn and porn addiction?
• What would you tell someone who’s struggling with shame right now?

Hey folks,
 
Are you excited for 2015?
 
Over the past two years I was able to write (and self-publish) 2 books, create over 100 videos and podcasts combined, travel and speak around the country, be interviewed on several shows, make time for my family, strengthen and enjoy my marriage, and much, much more!
 
I’m living out my dreams. And thankfully, there’s still more to come!
 
Now let me ask you a few questions:
 
Were you able to achieve your goals in 2014?
 
What are your dreams for 2015?
 
Do you wake up every day inspired to make your dreams happen?
 
For those with a religious background, are you at a place in your journey where you’re learning to let go of fear-based religion and need some “spiritual” direction?

 
Well, whatever your answers are, I wanna let you know that I’m finally making available my personal, one-on-one coaching/spiritual guidance program for 2015 in these areas:
 
• Personal
• Ministry
• Relationships
• Shedding Religion
• Achieving Your goals
• Finding Purpose
• Writing Your First Book
• Self-Publishing

 
If you’re interested in working with me, you can find out how at this link:

2015 is gonna be awesome!

Many “Christian” teachings concerning romantic relationships are usually driven by fear and a list of “do nots”. But is this they way God intended it?
