I wish I had realized this much earlier in my ministry, because I would have based pre-marital counseling around it. It is shockingly graphic. Yet Song of Songs is highly sensual in a sanctified and God-blessed way. Since God invented love, sex, and marriage, He intends His people to enjoy the blessings He invented; and Song of Songs leaves no doubt about that. No generation has more needed a Song-of-Solomon view of love and sex and marriage. Background: Solomon wrote songs 1 Kings , but this is the best—the song of songs.
Bible Verses About Sexual Immorality
Pre-Marital Sex: What the Bible Says | Covenant Eyes
I'm looking for verses that speak of the "evils" of premarital sex. I have seen the parables about if you have sex with a female who is not married then you have to pay the "virgin bride price" and then take her as your bride. But that's all I've found. The Bible promotes abstinence before marriage. Sex before marriage is just as wrong as adultery and other forms of sexual immorality, because they all involve having sex with someone you are not married to. Sex between a husband and his wife is the only form of sexual relations that God approves of Hebrews Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners shall inherit the kingdom of God.
What does the bible say about premarital sex ?
Does the Bible teach that sex before marriage is a sin? This is because we live in a world of tweets and quick soundbites where people rarely have enough time for context. The thinking often goes: If there is no Bible verse that answers my question, then the Bible must not have an answer to my question. I used to get asked this question often when I did college campus ministry, and I still hear it as a pastor.
One of God's purposes in creating sex was for our pleasure. But God also set limits on its enjoyment for our protection. According to the Bible, when we stray outside those protective boundaries, we enter into sexual immorality. This extensive collection of Scriptures is provided as an aid to those who wish to study what the Bible says about sexual sin.
