Some of you know that I collect Country and Western song titles. I like Country and Western song titles. I'm not the biggest country music fan, but I like to see these titles. Some of them are so depressing they are hilarious. I happen to have some with me today. Here's one that you'll like. If you don't leave me, I'll find someone who will. That gets right to it. Here's one. I'm so miserable without you it's almost like having you here. And a classic - If the phone don't ring, you'll know it's me. You have to think about that one a little bit. This one gets right to the point. You're the reason our kids are so ugly. I wonder what the chorus is like on that one. You were only a splinter as I slid down the banister of live. Ouch. This one gets worse. You're the hangnail in my life and I can't bite you off. My favorite of all time - My wife ran off with my best friend and I sure do miss him. Now, aren't those heartwarming and touching love songs?
For the next four weekends we are going to look at the greatest love song ever written. It's a book in the Bible called the Song of Solomon. It's really a love song written by King Solomon to the woman he falls in love with and marries. It's eight chapters that are God inspired and it's really God's help for dating, love, marriage, sex, conflict, romance. It's all covered in this book - the Song of Solomon. Now, most pastors in churches never really talk about this book much. I guess because it talks a lot about love and sex. Therefore most Christians have no idea what it says or what it means. In fact, most people don't even know, they don't have a clue that it's in the Bible. I sent Pastor Stan out this week to ask the question - Do you know what the Song of Solomon is? And also he asked -- Did you know that sex is in the Bible? Watch this.
You never know what you will get with Pastor Stan. Great job.
The world today talks a lot about love and sex. We are constantly bombarded with the wrong messages about this subject. So, I think it is so important that we talk about it because the two places that it should be talked about, our homes and our churches, they are pretty much silent on the subject.
