Book Summary of Why Does God Care Who I Sleep With by Sam Allberry


Today’s culture places an enormous emphasis on sex. From politics to advertising and popular culture, society is increasingly sexualized. In particular, many today place sexual freedom among the keys to a happy and fulfilled life.

Against this backdrop, Christianity’s view of sex and sexuality can seem prudish and very limiting. Why does God care who people sleep with? With all the issues in the world that Christians could focus on, why does so much emphasis fall on sex? 

Everyone instinctively understands the importance of sex. Sleeping with someone involves so much more than a physical act. It is, when understood biblically, a complete union of two people: physically, emotionally, and psychologically. So, ultimately, “God cares who we sleep with because he cares deeply about the people doing the sleeping” (p. 10).

God presents His relationship with His people through the metaphor of marriage. Jesus, the great bridegroom, will come to collect His bride, the church. The sexual union of two people should express this whole-life devotion and union with the other person. 

God cares who we sleep with because He deeply cares about us.
