On this week’s episode of indoubt, we’re joined by Preston Sprinkle and we’re diving into a discussion on sex. You’ll hear Daniel and Preston talk through the meaning and what it means in a biblical and cultural context. The two also look at some big issues in our culture that relate to the conversation: polyamory – what is it and how do we respond to it as Christians; and the relationship between sex and technology. Ultimately, Preston and Daniel talk through more than just the question of what is sex, but also: how are humans to relate to each other sexually so that we can honor God in how we’re expressing ourselves?
