These are scanned images of the actual book by Dr. Jack Schaap. This is the most disgusting blasphemy I have ever heard out of the mouth of a Baptist preacher.

Pastor Steven L Anderson's Comments:

Dr. Schaap's use of the word "intimacy" is not what is blasphemous. What is
blasphemous is his twisting the word of God into a sexual connotation where none

Here is a quotation from his book:

"Psalm 119:30 says, “I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid
before me.” That word laid is a sexual term which literally means the same thing
as a man laying with a woman. God was saying that God’s laws should be as
intimate as a marriage partner in a sexual liaison." Marriage The Divine
Intimacy, Hyles Publications 2005. Page 44 pp2

Do you honestly believe that when David said, "Thy judgments have I laid before
me," that he was referring to sex? Dr. Schaap here is twisting the English
language. The word "lay" (present tense) is never used to refer to sex. The word
"lie" (present tense) is what God uses to refer to sex. While the past perfect
of the word "lie" is "lay" (see 1 Samuel 2:22), they are two completely
different words. The word "lie" is intransitive, and the word "lay" is

The past participle of lie IS NOT LAID! The past participle of lie is LAIN!

Dr Schaap is a very smart man, and I doubt that he does not know this basic
knowledge of English grammar. Therefore he is either intentionally being
misleading as to the English term, or he believes that KJV is wrong in its usage
of the word "laid" as opposed to "lain." (This would be preposterous since the
sentence in Psalm 119:30 is transitive.)

Here is another quotation from his book:

"In the next verse, David gets more graphic. “I have stuck unto thy testimonies:
O LORD, put me not to shame.” that word stuck means “the act of a man entering
his wife”; it is sexual intercourse. God says that the Word of God should be the
Christians lover, and nothing should be closer to him than the Bible. The Words
of God are supposed to be the most intimate lover of his life." Marriage The
Divine Intimacy, Hyles Publications 2005. Page 44 pp3

Do you honestly believe that when David said, "I have stuck unto thy
testimonies," that he was talking about inserting his private parts? If you
don't think that is obscene, then what is obscene? The word "unto" does not
denote "entrance." That would be "into."

Here is another quote from the book:

"When a person takes the bread during the Lord’s Supper, he is not actually
eating Christ’s body. That person is saying, “This element represents
something.” The person who deeply loves Christ understands that when he receives
Christ as Saviour, it is a spiritual intercourse. A person receives the body of
Christ. A Christian is the female gender in the spiritual realm, and God is the
male gender of the spiritual realm. When a person receives Christ as Saviour, he
is receiving Christ as a lover."

Schaap's sentence, "A person receives the body of Christ," in the above quote is
used to prove his point that communion is spiritual intercourse (sexual
intercourse according to his statement about Christ being your "lover"). The
problem with that is that in taking the Lord's supper, we are receiving the
BROKEN body of Christ (By the way, when I was at First Baptist, communion was
served with unbroken little squares. Perhaps this explains the lack of
understanding people have as to what the element represents). How twisted is it
to take an element that represents the BROKEN body of Jesus Christ on the cross
and make it represent something sexual. This is the same as a similar quote by
Madonna in the 1980's that was decried by preachers everywhere.
