)-- A controversial new sex book by author Tom Gruber grapples with an age-old question: Is There Sex In Heaven? Muslims and Mormons say yes. Billy Graham said, “If sex is necessary for our happiness and fulfillment, it'll be there.” (Larry King Live Interview, CNN, Dec. 25, 1998) But most Christians dogmatically declare that Heaven is a sex-free zone reserved exclusively for celestial monks and nuns. Why the confusion?
According to Gruber, there are ten common reasons why most Christians reject the notion of sex after death. Although the Bible nowhere answers our query concerning intercourse in the afterlife, Jesus did say there is no marriage in the afterlife. And for many, no marriage is the equivalent of no sex.
Other reasons for rejecting the notion of sex in Heaven: (1) We won’t have physical bodies. (2) We’ll no longer be male or female. (3) The Beatific Vision will be so wonderful that we won’t desire sex. (4) Since we’ll be married to Jesus, sex would be sinful. (5) We won’t be making babies so there will be no need for sex. (6) Sex is too earthly to be heavenly. (7) The question of sex in Heaven is unknowable. (8) The question of sex in Heaven is unimportant.
In response to these objections, Gruber argues that this inquiry is both important and knowable. Gruber responds to each objection thoughtfully and biblically, arguing that most Christians may be wrong and Billy Graham might be right regarding this controversial hot potato.
