i'm guessing you must be young.
The bible says tons of stuff about sex. But it is only true if YOU believe it to be true.
Premarital sex is practiced daily by all kinds of people. Whether you believe it to be ok or not is up to YOU.
My suggestion is to get educated on the good and the bad about having sex (any kind of sex) and decide for yourself if it is "OK" or not.
And please, get educated about birth control first and foremost before having sex. There is no need to create a baby unless you REALLY want a baby.
Is premarital sex ok? No.
Why does the Bible say otherwise? Ask God.
According to Islamic theology, a righteous spouse helps a man complete half of his religion. God does not stop you from having sex. He merely decrees that you have sex and raise children with your spouses within wedlock. Why does God recommend sex after marriage? It is to maintain the moral fabric of society.
The bible was written over 2000 years ago. Things have changed drastically. Sex is a physical act between two people. It is not required to be married to have sex. Marriage is a legal family system, not governed by a god or gods except in your head
You're correct Abdus, God does recommend sex after marriage, and at least partly to maintain the fabric of society. God designed us to function this way.
I hope I don't find out that my new wife is transgender after the wedding. That could make for an awkward honeymoon. And would I still have to consummate the marriage? Lord help us!!!
The Bible was written by men, who apparently think God spoke to them. We will never know if that is true. There is a definite bias against women in the Bible. St. Paul decided if people were so disgusting they would not refrain from having sex, then they should marry, and stay together forever, no matter how miserable they became.
This is a decision you have to make on your own, depending how YOU feel about a person, and if you care enough about them to want to have a sexual relationship with that person. I am romantic, and never had sex with anyone I didn't love. And I think if you marry someone without ever having sex with them, there is a big part of that person you don't know anything about. That kind of closeness tells you a lot about somebody. Just be sure to protect yourself, against disease and unwanted pregnancy you both are not ready to deal with. Also,the Bible is 2,000 years old. Times and moral values change.
Is premarital sex okay? That depends on your faith.Many who have already commented have shown you the majority belief. Those following specific faiths would disagree. It is your choice in the end.
Why does the Bible say otherwise? God relates our man and wife relationships to the human and God relationship. If you do not marry then you do not commit yourself permanently to the relationship. Also men and women being virgins represent purity, righteousness. A final note is that God likes to protect us (like the unclean things He told the Jewish people not to eat-all of these are natural garbage disposals/bottom feeders) He knew about diseases spreading more rampantly due to the limited commitment and moving on to other partners. Not to say that modern marriage even remotely resembles His expectations many times. I hope this answers your question.

Why does the Bible threaten us?I read the Bible and it is full of threatening words. If you don't believe in Jesus and accept him as your Savior you will go to hell. If you kill someone in self defense you will go to hell. If you steal a crumb of bread when you are hungry you will go to hell. All...

Why does the bible not speak of Jesus's teenage years?Story goes from him being a baby, nothing in his teenage years, to him in his 30s or 40s. I've always wondered what went on in those missing years. Does anybody know?
