Identity and Relationships
The Catholic Churches Point of View
The Catholic churches view on sexual relations.
The Catholic Church teaches that human life and human sexuality are inseparable.This is because Catholics believe God created human beings in his image and he believed everything he created to be good. The Church teaches that human body and sex must likewise be good. The Church considers the expression of love between husband and wife to be an elevated form of human activity, joining as it does, husband and wife in complete mutual self-giving, and opening their relationship to new life. “The sexual activity, in which husband and wife are intimately and chastely united with one another, through which human life is transmitted, is, as the recent Council recalled, ‘noble and worthy.’ It is in cases in which sexual expression is sought outside sacramental marriage, or in which the procreative function of sexual expression within marriage is deliberately frustrated, that the Catholic Church expresses grave moral concern.
The Catholic Churches View on Contraception.
The Catholic church is against the aim of contraception because it defies the very reason of why they believed humans engaged in sexual relations, to bring new life into the world. Using contraception or birth control such as the pill or condoms goes against everything that the church said.
