"One Flesh"

"When a man and a woman come together sexually in “one flesh” (Genesis 2:24), they become a more complete expression of the infinite spectrum of God’s characteristics. This is a crucial aspect of the amazing power--the indescribable magnetism--of sex. It is meant to be a response to God’s potent stamp on the core of our beings.

It is this spiritual dimension of the pleasure and pull of sexual expression that sanctifies sex. The result of the male-female union is not some androgynous entity. Men remain spectacularly male and masculine. Women remain wonderfully female and feminine. Unlike paganism’s fascination with androgyny, the Bible affirms fully the magnificent differences of maleness and femaleness."

James L. Garlow and Peter Jones, Cracking Da Vinci’s Code, pg. 22-23
