There’s a great deal of discussion about “casual sex” on college campuses today but should anyone really be aiming for “casual” in our relations with anyone?

When we meet others, we are faced with the option of using them for our own purposes or encountering that person as someone whom God loves and is created for a special purpose. The modern “hookup culture” which dominates many college campuses seems to me to be a corollary of the “it’s just business” mantra that so many adults have used, as if personal behavior should be excused in some particular area that exists outside of morality like a God-free zone. But “it’s just business” has essentially morphed into “it’s just pleasure” as an excuse for many to act on behalf of one’s own interests.
