I thought I would make a couple points of clarification. First the human correspondence of an atom is represented by a male and female coming together and balancing their energies. As these two become "one flesh" they are looked upon as one human atomic unit or a human Adam.
The higher correspondence of an atomic molecule is represented by specific numbers of male/female units uniting in purpose and linked spiritually to the Kingdom of God.
Sue has a point that past prophets may have had a glimpse of this relationship and thought that the various molecules in the multiple relationships would mean that polygamous and other unusual relationships would be the way to go. But the truth is that male/female entities as individuals form human atoms, not molecules and this requires a one to one relationship, just as there is always one proton for each electron in nature.
But once the male/female relationship is in balance then higher non sexual sharing on a spiritual level can create the next great step in our human evolution.
Incorrect sharing of sexual energy (often in place of the spiritual) is the cause of the downfall of more spiritual groups than any other principle.
As far as what is right and wrong in sex, this is a subject Susan will be covering eventually, but neither the churches nor the free spirits have this down correctly.
Before we proceed it is important to point out that there is room for all in the Kingdom of God, male/female, married/single, gay and straight. No matter what situation we have found ourselves in through birth we all have the same opportunity for progress, but we all must also learn and apply the same spiritual principles to obtain certain results.
