Eroticism and Jesus. Does this sound like the God of the Bible as depicted in Scripture? Ann Voskamp thinks so. Passages in her book "One Thousand Gifts" are both alarming and shocking when compared to Scripture.
Should women who love Jesus with all of their hearts and minds be thinking of Him the way Ann does, when she says things like "I fly to Paris and discover how to make love to God”? (201)
Or when She states that Jesus is “bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh” (217), using language from Genesis 2:23 where Adam describes his partner, Eve. “I want to be in God and God to be in me, to exchange love and blessings and caresses” (217), she writes, moving on to words like “interchange,” “intercourse (twice),” “disrobed,” and declaring how this intercourse is “the climax of joy” (217-218). Voskamp longs to “burn,” “flush of embarrassment up the face” and tells the reader that we are to “cohabit” with God (218).
Join Pastor Steve as he brings to light the dangerous threshold of mysticism that is being crossed by not only this author, but also by Sarah Young in her best-selling book entitled "Jesus Calling".
