This Thing Called Sex (A Biblical Expose On The Purpose, Power And The Problems Of The Sex Act).
Price: $9.00 USD. Words: 60,390. Language: English. Published: July 5, 2014. Categories: Nonfiction » Sex and Relationships  » Sex and religion

As a result of this negligence, the God who doesn’t hide knowledge decided to use folks who aren’t really in the Church to positively educate the world.
