It is not loving to engage in any activity that displeases God. If you’re bored go to the cinema or play a computer game or go for a run – don’t misuse something as important as sex just for a bit of mindless fun.That would be like hiring a Rolls Royce car just to pick up some shopping – a waste, a misuse of something precious, something that is far more important if used properly.As with all theology and ethics, the case is not built upon one single verse or argument.We will spend most time on the Biblical arguments, since these are most often neglected in favour of the pragmatic and cultural ones in contemporary debate. These are the six main lines of argument: Given that there is no single text explicitly banning this activity, how do we know what the Bible says?The verb translated "prostituted herself" is (see below).Third, pre-marital sex, even if it is between two consenting adults, is considered wrong (verses 23-24) Notice that in this case the "engaged-married" distinction is almost non-existent.
There is a tendency for Christians to assume that the world is much more sex-crazed than it actually is.Or, we might say, it is God’s wedding present to husband and wife.A Christian asks an older friend, "Does the Bible say I can’t have sex before I’m married? Their conclusion is that there isn’t a verse in the Bible which says, "Thou shalt not have sex before marriage." So it’s OK?Fourthly, sex before marriage must lead to marriage (v.28-29).1 Corinthians 6-7 In -20 Paul combats a sharp dualism between body (which apparently doesn’t matter) and spirit (which is supposedly unaffected by physical things).There is no longer any stigma attached to pre-marital sex in our society.
