should marriage come before sex?
and if you truely in love with the person...and later on in life become united as one through mariage...does it matter if sex comes first?
what if its not sex and its proving your love and uniting your badies as one for eternity even though you have not yet first been bounded together by mariage?
 will you be forgiven by the lord?




The Bible is very clear on this in both the Old Testament and the New Testament.    The Bible calls sex without marriage "fornication."  Notice what the Bible says about this:


"Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor {the} covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God (1 Cor 6:9-10)."


Fornicators, along with adulterers, homosexuals, thieves, etc. will not go to Heaven.  Sex is for one person and one person only.  Sex is for your spouse whom you are married to.


"Marriage is to be held in honor among all, and the marriage bed is to be undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge (Heb 13:4)."


God will judge both fornicators and adulterers.  So the obvious conclusion is to save it for your spouse when you are married.
