Favorite Duggar pastor John Piper: Sex is only for Christians and everyone else is a prostitute

Published

on

A Minnesota pastor whose teachings have been promoted by members of the Duggar family argued this week that only Christians were meant to have sex.

In a column titled “Sex Belongs to Christians,” Pastor John Piper opined that Hollywood had turned the “holy pleasure into a cheap spectator sport.”

“Sex belongs to Christians. Because sex belongs to God,” he wrote. “If it is used by those who do not believe and know the truth, it is prostituted.”

“The pleasures of sex are meant for believers. They are designed for their greatest expression by the children of God,” he continued. “He saves His richest gifts for his children. And as we enjoy His gift of sex, we say, by our covenant faithfulness to our spouse, that God is greater than sex. And the pleasures of sex are themselves an overflow of God’s own goodness.”

According to the pastor, God made sex “for the Christ-exalting glory of covenant-keeping faithfulness in marriage, and for the glory of Christ-exalting chastity in singleness.”

Following revelations that Josh Duggar had paid an adult film star for violent sex, sister Jill Duggar shared one of Piper’s sermons about adultery on Facebook.

“The gospel convinces us of something irresistibly true, and then transforms our desires for something new,” Piper says in the sermon. “That conviction and passion keeps us out of bed with someone who’s not our spouse and rejects a thousand other temptations.”

The response was some of the harshest since she wore an "I Don't Care" jacked to visit the border.

Donald Trump on the US-Mexico Border

On Sunday, Austin Savage and five of his friends huddled into an SUV and went to an El Paso Target, loading up on diapers, wipes, soaps and toys.

About $340 later, the group headed to a Border Patrol facility holding migrant children in nearby Clint with the goal of donating their goods. Savage said he and his friends had read an article from The New York Times detailing chaos, sickness and filth in the overcrowded facility, and they wanted to help.

But when they arrived, they found that the lobby was closed. The few Border Patrol agents — Savage said there were between eight and 10 of them — moving in and out of a parking facility ignored them.
