Christian Swingers? Is there such a thing?

The answer is a no, Let's just get that out of the way.

An article written by Carey Lodge of Christian Today reported a bodybuilding couple who engage in the practice of swinging (Not sitting on a park swing and rocking back and forth, but a practice involving the swapping of spouses and partners to have sexual activity for recreation). You can find the original article by Lodge here:

These "Christian Swingers" known as Christy and Dean Parave engage in this practice with their excuse being for the sake of evangelism. Let's review the comments:

"God has put me here to spread his word and our lifestyle community is a great place to do it"

No, the exhortation to repent of our sins is how we are to spread his word. The only thing you'll be spreading are sexually transmitted disease and spiritually dead individuals. Engaging in sin is NOT a for of evangelism at all, it is the opposite of evangelism.

"You can't get closer to someone than having sex with them"

The closest you should get to someone who you are not married to is a friend, not jumping into the sack with them. The way to present the Gospel is what it is, what Christ has done, what you are to do and exhort them to repent. You live the Christian life and provide the expostion at the same time and be a light to the nations. Jesus said in Matthew 5:16:
"16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."

"I'm getting to people that will probably never even visit a church"

The only reason you are getting people into your church like that is because you are appealing to their fleshly nature. You are appealing to the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life (1 John 2:15) to get them into the church, but not actually getting them out of their sin into Christ's church.

The Gospel is not for tickling one's ears, it should disturb the sinner to the core and make them realize what a wretched evil soul they are and that they have offended a holy God and need salvation. The people are not interested in Jesus because you have given the Gospel to them or if you have, it isn't the Gospel they are interested in, it's the satisfaction of the flesh they are interested in,

"If all the swinger are sinners what's the best way to talk to the sinners? To join them, right?"
WRONG!!! You don't join in sin in order to reach out to someone. By this logic presented by the Paraves, This means Christians can engage in witchcraft, homosexuality, murder, drunkeness and other sins, in order to reach out to the groups entangled in those sins.  Doesn't 1 John 2:15 ring a bell with these people?

"I don't think God would be mad at what we're doing. At first I was conflicted but the more we looked at it the more it makes sense to us,"

Christy, The reason you were conflicted was because you KNEW you were doing wrong and your conscience was warning you not to engage in the behaviour. And thanks to the fact you and Dean have ignored your consciences, you both have now seared your consciences and ruined them. There is a warning about searing the conscience:
"4 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. 2 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. 3 They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth. 4 For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 5 because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer."

Although the Paraves are not guilty of the crimes of let's say 119 ministries or Roman Catholicism and others like them, the Paraves ARE guilty of following doctrines of demons and have in effect, destroyed their own conscience.

How does it making sense mean it is right to engage in swinging? That excuse can be used for anything by this twisted logic.

God has given man a conscience, They no God exists deep down and hate him and try to suppress the truth by wickedness (Romans 1:18-32).

Your hearts are decieving you Paraves, think about what you both are saying.

"Dean and I are both in agreement with this lifestyle, so we're not committing adultery. God put people on the earth to breed and enjoy each other – I feel God is always with me and he has put us here for a reason."

It makes no difference whether it is consent or not, adultery is what you are both engaging in and unless you repent, God's wrath is upon you and he will be against you. Again, consent can be twisted into an excuse for immorality.

Read the following:
"Galatians 5:19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God."

"1 Corinthians 6:9 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men[a] 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."

Also the command to be fruitful and multiply and enjoying sexual pleasure is in the confines of BIBLICALLY solid marriages, not in fornication, not in homosexuality or promiscuity or bestiality or any wicked sexual sin in the eyes of God. You cannot truly enjoy sex outside biblical marriage. In fact you are guilty of desecrating marriage and profaning sex if you indulge in sexual sin of this sort.

"If I can go to the next swinger's event and get 10 people to believe in job is done,"

No Dean, What you have done is tickle peoples ears and allow them to continue in their sin, something which Jesus will hold you and Christy accountable for when you stand on the day of judgement and I sincerely hope you both are not pastors or teachers, as you will be held more accountable on the Day of Judgement for what you have been teaching to others. Even if you were not teachers, Jesus will still demand a reason why you have done what you have done.

I exhort all, Do not give Dean and Christy any donation for their "ministry" nor support them, for they have abandoned the faith and have been mislead by their own desires. Pray for their repentance yes, but do not fellowship with them.

Answering Judaism.
