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
sort by best latest
Am I correct in assuming "fornicators" in this instance would be those who have carnal knowledge outside of marriage?
Oooo That is Paul's writing which goes right against that of what Jesus taught. Be care what you read from that man for he is not a Saint by any means. Read further and you will see why women are treated poorly today.
Thanks Lady G - aware its Paul - being gay, Corinth is known well. It was merely as it answered the question best, not that it's what I actually believe.
I know that. The truth should be known though. That was Paul's church not one the Jesus would have approved on. He didn't like church or clergy teachings then and I doubt he would now.
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?!
I can't see how we liken someone enjoying a sexual relationship to being a rapist or a whore... that's terrible :( geez.
Yupper - enough with name calling. SilverFish is entitled to their view - and answer to this question.
I am neither a rapist nor a whore- is this your world you describe?
I am in a stable loving relationship with another and we have children. As god and the bible are meaningless to me so is marriage. I have no need for it.
maybe you better think about it....sexual intercourse is for satisfying a husband...not something to do with just anyone for the sickness of you.
Yuppers - not everyone needs the bible to instruct their personal morals and are still very moral people. What silverfish does in their life is no business of yours. Please stop implying something u do not know for sure.
But premarital sex always has consequences, whether it is STDs (not all stds are preventable by condoms), or getting in trouble with parents, unwanted pregnancies, or emotional trauma.
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
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.
Like Incest? Many were brought on by incest, especially Adam and Eve. Incest does a whole lot of damage to future generations.
Thanks for this - I've actually managed to fit the rape verse into the project I am working on - it is more about a girl being cast out through the actions of another against her, but interpreted as 'premarital sex" so that verse worked!
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.
Irene - thank you, these will be helpful also.
Clover - nevertheless, they are helpful in regards to marriage in general.
Well God Bless your findings...I almost MARRIED an ADULTERER! Do you think there is anything about that?! Thank God I threw back the ring and left him...even though it broke my heart.
Some terms, like Adulterer, are much different than what they are in that Bible. Not everything is in that Bible! LOTS have been taken out or left out.
clover-fornication is another word for premarital sex, so this does have to do with it...
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 am glad you help the poor my request was any efforts made must be oriented for humanitarian cause.Sex is nature and we should obey nature.
Not try to interpret and tune it to different methods.
Many thanks for taking my comment so sportively.
"Christians can divorce any number of times and marry again."
"And it was said, 'Whoever sends his wife away, let him give her a certificate of divorce'; but I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except for the cause of u
I agree with you. But, which of the Ten commandments are you talking about?
Thanks for that ero. And thanks, JT - I was just about to ask that!
I was taught in church that "Thou shalt not commit adultery" referred to all sex outside of marriage, whether pre-marital or extra-marital. I tend not to agree with this because I don't think that's what the word "adultery" means tho...
Thank you for this Prasadjain - interesting to know (and a wonderful name for the text!)
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.
But they could be STOPPED, if say, people suddenly or gradually became, ummm ahhh SMARTER and had SELF CONTROL.
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.
Sounds like a modern day revision of the Bible and not the truer version.
I disagree. Marriage was created by God, as in a husband and wife. Eve was the wife of Adam or else Gen 2:24 makes no sense. The pomp and ceremony of marriages are man's design, but the institution itself is from God.
It is my understanding that a man can take a WHORE anytime. That has nothing to do with a WIFE. My question is can a WOMAN have more than one HUSBAND simultaneously - similar to KING with MANY WIVES.
Gen 2:23 and the man saith, `This [is] the [proper] step! bone of my bone, and flesh of my flesh!' for this it is called Woman, for from a man hath this been taken... Are we ASSUMING this is a FEMALE? Man said it not God.
If it is in the Bible, God said it.
JT, I quoted from that book and that verse said that MAN said it but you be blind and can't read. So be it!!
I will not debate with you Lady. It is a total waste of time. Just pointing out a fact. Adam said this by the way.

JT, Thanks for not debating me. Am I to assume that you will not harrass me with you attacks anymore and you won't follow me to do so?
