An Interesting Theory
This is an interesting theory. God created man. I won’t go into debates; you either believe it or you don’t. According to scripture God created man in likeness to Himself. A likeness in all ways one must presume. He is a creator therefore man is potentially a creator. We use the word create when we paint a picture, write a story or build a building but that more correctly is making not creating. Creating is making out of no matèrial. Words are not material but are reached by the physical senses, i.e. hearing.
So God created man in His own image. Then God put the man to sleep and divided him into two parts (not types). Male and female. The female came out of the male. After this the male was deficient of the things taken out of him to make the female; he was missing some things that were in God and that had made him like God because they were now in the female.
Does it make sense that to be like God the two have to come back together again?
Let us say “yes” for arguments sake. If so then the two coming together can create like God does. Guess what, when male and female come together they can create a new man. In the book of Adam and Eve it tells us when Eve conceived and gave birth to Cain she said ” I have made a man.” When a male and a female co-operate in sex they become creators. This is a miracle of God reproduced by man.
Does man’s creative power end there or does it go beyond procreating children?
I think it goes beyond!
What is the special power of male and female co-operating? It was intended according to Jesus that a man should have one wife for life. Is there a special power in married couples that is beyond the natural power of agreement ?( Matt. 18:19 ) I think there may be.
The nèw covenant emphasises the need to die to self. There is no greater challenge to die to self than marriage: at the same time their is no greater motivation than the one you choose to marry and spend your life with. To get the most out of marriage each has to die to self and defer to the other. The extent to which you ignore this law the marriage relationship suffers. Now people are different, the environment is imperfect. Personalities and temperaments differ. Some are takers some are givers and the spectrum in between is all of us. We become fearful of being taken advantage of; for good reason, we have seen it happen in others, so we retreat from the optimal and thus deny ourselves the potential that the optimal offers.
I think that a married couple that both truly desire to achieve the optimal in marriage and therefore prefer to the other, will have Godly power when they truly agree. Even with the greatest desire and diligence on both sides, this takes a lifetime.
So first its commitment. Commitment to the spouse you have chosen. Ask God for His confirming. Naturally you will need to know God first.
Next, whilst preparing for the wedding ceremony try to find agreement in all decisions. This will identify the differences in the way you think and they will manifest fast and numerous unless both are unusually compatible. The more incompatible the greater the work. The greater the work the more the reward.
Sex! Not a nasty word. God set it up that way. It plays a very important part if used correctly. But that is a subject of its own.
