Christian writer clarifies that there will be no sex in Heaven

If your sex life was less-than-fulfilling here on earth, you’re not going to get a do-over in the afterlife — that is, if believe Greg Morse knows something you don’t.

The Friendly Atheist‘s Hemant Mehta highlighted an op-Ed Morse recently published in the religious website Desiring God, where he argues that the concept of sex and marriage in heaven (which some Christians believe) is a false teaching.

In the piece, Morse recounts an alleged conversation he had with someone who tried to argue that Islam’s version of the afterlife is preferable, and backs up his thesis with two bible verses from the books of Luke and Matthew:

“The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage, but those who are considered worthy to attain to that age and to the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage” (Luke 20:34–35), and “In the resurrection, God’s people will be like the angels in heaven — without spouse or sex (Matthew 22:30).

Unless I’m reading him incorrectly, Morse seems to be ceding that Heaven might not be the party we’d like to see after all, and that’s the whole point.

1. Then is it even Heaven?

Or is your reward for abstaining from naughty sex an eternity of no sex at all, and all you ever get to do is just hang out with Jesus and sing hymns?

4. Maybe he is speaking personally

about his own lack of desirability and that he expects his profound 'Incel' status to continue into the next life.

I have to agree with his self assessment.

5. People will be so blinded by gold brick streets and pearl gates to care

They'll do well to take their harps and find their cloud to play it on.

6. That makes sense. Since sex is strictly for procreation in their eyes

I can see why there is no sex in heaven.

7. Better check your map

Who would want to spend eternity with such up tight, self righteous, people.

Now you tell me the incels are running the place?

I got it. I bet no dogs are allowed either.

That’s not heaven, it’s hell

10. Nobody Don't Need No Viagra In Heaven!

That will be a relief to many, I suspect, and not just men, either...

11. Wouldn't be enough room for all those beds and bedrooms anyway.

Where do they put all those people from over several millennia anyway? Are they stacking them up in bunk beds, or do you even need sleep up there?

12. Well, per one conversation I had many years ago...

those who don't accept Jesus into their hearts will burn in hell, including EVERYONE who was dead before Jesus was born or whom word of Jesus never reached. That'll cut down the numbers significantly.

13. Heaven is like sitting in church for all eternity, Hell is like an eternal BDSM party.

Are you sure the whole punishment/reward thing didn't get mixed up?
