The Separatists couldn’t make up their minds about sex. Was it good? Or bad? Well, that’s not exactly accurate–they never thought it was good. More like accepting sex as a necessary evil? Or totally opposed. Remember, their goal was to get to heaven–be saved. That’s what made this life on earth palatable. if they sacrificed pleasures now, they’d reap the reward in the next life. A not uncommon belief even today.
However….some of us wouldn’t be here today, would we, if the Separatists had decided to forego sex?
