Abstract This article unashamedly argues for the positive value of sexuality and its profound religious dimensions. A stance is taken that goes beyond moralizing and ethicizing. The relationship in the Bible between eros and religion is explored by referring to the sexual image of God in Genesis 1:26-27, the religious dimension of the book of Song of Songs and Jesus’ stance in contrast with that of Paul. Through religion humans’ sexual experience should be enhanced in stead of being suppressed. Society should be sexualized.
