i'm reading scot mcknight's latest book - the blue parakeet - and it's amazing. i'm a fan of scot's, and love his ability to make the academic ordinary.
he's a dude.
anyway - in a section talking about the sanctity of the marriage covenant he makes this bold claim: there is no such thing as premarital sex in the bible...all sex constitutes the entry into the covenant of marriage.
now, be honest, how many of you would have lived differently in high school if you knew that you were marrying every one of those ridiculous women in the backseat of your daddy's cadillac?
i guarantee they'd have felt differently about being stuck with you.
