Pre marital sex - help with a verse, or what does your Holy Book say?


I'm looking for the verse/s that speak of sex outside of marriage - I am aware of the verses in Leviticus on sexual practices, but I was wonder if there is a New Testament one or two about this. I'm not looking to debate them, I'm actually in the middle of a project where I need to discuss them specifically (eg NAME verses) so would appreciate your help. I'm also interested in what other religions may say about pre-marital sex - and verses in their Holy Book. This will be helpful also!. Thanks in advance

    Am I correct in assuming "fornicators" in this instance would be those who have carnal knowledge outside of marriage?

    Yes, and we ought to remember along with these statements that sex outside marriage during biblical times had the potential consequence of bringing death on the family and was regarded as a crime for the disease it would potentially cause.

    are you a rapist or a whore? Have you no constitution of what is right and wrong? You may not need a BOOK per se, but others do...GUILD FREE?! Is NOTHING sacred?!

    Yupperclub - thank you for your answer. I will see what the LDS have to say also. Perhaps it is in the Book of Joseph (I hope thats right), rather than the Bible

    Thew Book was made to control the masses and their money, lives ect... Anything written by St. Paul is a fraud because he was an impostor and many of his teachings to HIS churches were opposite of what Jesus taught. Jesus was never in those church

    These verses have nothing about pre-marital sex.

    skgrao - it is not a physical project, it is a written one (not for HP - but possibly). I do help out the homeless and poor when I can.

    I agree with you. But, which of the Ten commandments are you talking about?

    I respect your choice to forego premarital sex. I just want to point out unwanted pregnancies; abortion; children out of wedlock; unfaithfulness; disrespect; sexual diseases; adultery, etc. has been part of human life for millenia.

    Genesis 2:24 God made Eve for Adam; he didn't make Eve, Jenny, Sally and Sue for Adam, etc. Man and wife are to be paired together to become one flesh; two people who are dedicated to each other. Solomon had many wives and it led to trouble.
