Dear Dr. Smith
18. Dear Dr. Smith,
I am very confused. Every time I do oral sex with my spouse I always wonder if it is OK in God's eyes because if it is not, I surely do not want to do it again. It would help me a lot to know what you think and also if you know if the church or spirit of prophesy allows it.
Oral sex is not discussed in the Bible or the Spirit of Prophecy. As a result I do not have a Biblical or Church Policy answer. However, when the Bible, Spirit of Prophecy or the Church is silent on a particular subject, then that subject should be left to a consecrated conscience to make spiritual application. For example, the Apostle Paul tells us that whatever we do, do all to the honor and glory of God ( I Cor 10:31). Also he says that our bodies are the temple of the living God (I Cor 6:19). Your thoughts and actions will have to be guided by Spiritual principles, knowing fully well that not everything the world does the Church of God can do also.
I wish you God's blessings in your marriage.
