Sex Before Marriage: Does God Approve?

We live in a new day. One in which the very definition of morality is being rewritten. With that in mind, do you believe the traditional Christian view concerning premarital sex is old-fashioned and outdated?

I hear many educators and social physicians say that sex before marriage is a natural function of adolescence. Popular culture views premarital sex favorably. In fact, there is an EXPECTATION that kids will have sex before they're married.

What do you think? Do you believe premarital sex is okay? Is there any reason teens or unmarried adults should abstain?

Re: Sex Before Marriage: Does God Approve?

If one is a Christian the Bible is very clear on these matters. Adultery and fornication are dealt with.

I am guessing probably only DAII, Mr. Smith, and Walks In Islam may have a possibly different view than everybody else on AFF. Should be interesting to see the responses to your question!

"We did not wear uniforms. The lady workers dressed in the current fashions of the day, ...silks...satins...jewels or whatever they happened to possess. They were very smartly turned out, so that they made an impressive appearance on the streets where a large part of our work was conducted in the early years.

"It was not until long after, when former Holiness preachers had become part of us, that strict plainness of dress began to be taught.

"Although Entire Sanctification was preached at the beginning of the Movement, it was from a Wesleyan viewpoint, and had in it very little of the later Holiness Movement characteristics. Nothing was ever said about apparel, for everyone was so taken up with the Lord that mode of dress seemingly never occurred to any of us."

The last time I checked it was called fornication.

Re: Sex Before Marriage: Does God Approve?

Why is it wrong? Is there Bible against it? If there is, does it still apply to us?

Re: Sex Before Marriage: Does God Approve?

What if your pastor gives you permission ... or better yet ... he tells you to ...

Shall we not submit to our pastors?

Re: Sex Before Marriage: Does God Approve?

I think Charnock is doing an "AFF Test" to see how terrible we all are because we have no morals, hate pastors, God, each other and don't want to be told no.

(tic and from his own accusations)
