MacArthur on the Rape of Solomon's Song

John MacArthur takes issue with certain preachers who have used Solomon’s Song as an excuse to shock people with their over-the-top sex language.  (Note the irony of the article’s title.)  I have more to say about this, but for now here’s the best quote:

We’re assured moreover that the shocking hidden meanings of these texts aren’t merely descriptive; they are prescriptive. The secret gnosis of Solomon’s Song portray obligatory acts wives must do if this is what satisfies their husbands, regardless of the wife’s own desire or conscience. I was recently given a recording of one of these messages, where the speaker said, “Ladies, let me assure you of this: if you think you’re being dirty, he’s pretty happy.”
