“Is it ok to engage in sexual activity if you are not married?”
The answer is NO!!!!!
Engaging in sexual activity outside of a marriage is known as fornication
The Bible refers to fornication as followed:
2. Sexual immorality
5. Sexual vice
7. Sexual sins
So what does the bible tell us about fornication? It tells us in:
1 Corinthians 6:18 (KJV)
Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body, but he that committeth fornication, sinneth against his own body.
1 Corinthians 6:18 (The Holman Bible)
Flee from sexual immorality! “Every sin a person can commit is outside the body; but the person who is sexually immoral, sins against his own body.
So in essence it is not ok to engage in sexual activity if you are not married. The Bible verses above interpret your sexual immoral actions as sins that are committed against your own body. So don’t fool yourself, this sin is personal. You are depreciating or belittling your own body.
Your body is sacred. It does not belong to you. Your body serves as a resting place for the Holy Spirit who dwells inside of you.
1 Corinthians 6:19 (NIV)
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;
Sexual activity was designed to be shared between a husband and his wife. It was not designed to be a casual and consensual activity shared between two unmarried people. It was designed to be a special bond for a husband and his wife to share together once they have tied the knot and committed their lives to each other.
Have a blessed day!
