Is Sex Outside Marriage Really A Sin?
Please contact us if you have questions or comments or want encouragement.
The Bible tells us that sex is a beautiful thing that God has ordained for marriage. Many people have had sex outside of marriage. Unfortunately and transparent, I am one of those people. Sex outside of marriage is, without a doubt, a sin. It is against God’s will. Many have babies without getting married, having abortions, or the fortunate ones adopting their children to eager couples, which makes good out of something potentially tragic.
A few moments of pleasure can cause years of pain and regret. That is probably one of the most significant points against having sex outside marriage. It has caused me many heartaches. Thank God, I have been saved by faith in Jesus Christ and what He has done on the cross to forgive me of my sin. Only if we listened to what God taught us could we avoid so many problems! ~ Bill Greguska
1 Corinthians 7:2 But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband.

Sex Outside Marriage Has Always Been Against God’s Will!
If You Have Sex On Your Mind, Wait Until Marriage!
God created marriage and His guidelines for a marriage. He did it for our safety and protection because He loves us so much to do so. Sex is an intimate act between a husband anis pure under God’s guidelines. Sex is pure under God’s guidelines, but sex outside marriage sex is a sin. There is no doubt that sex is for marriage. It is not meant out of wedlock for many apparent reasons.
- God’s word says it for our good.
- Single mothers are raising their babies.
- Sexually transmitted diseases.
- Broken families, suffering children.
When people take things into their hands to do what pleases them, God’s commanded us to do. Sex outside marriage, according to God’s word a sin. Sex is for marriage, which is not negotiable. The way God intended, sex is for marriage only, yet our media has tried to change that fact! That is why sex is for marriage, and that is the way God intended it to be. When God says don’t, He says that because He doesn’t want you to hurt yourself! ~ Bill Greguska
God’s Way, Or Satan’s Way?
God intended sex to be a beautiful thing between one man and one woman for keeping the world populated. Our sinful world has attempted to change what God meant for good. Here are a couple of definitions of how sex has gotten distorted and sinful.
Definition of debauchery = extreme indulgence in bodily pleasures, especially sexual pleasures: behavior involving sex, drugs, alcohol, etc. That is often considered immoral.
Definition of lewd = crude and offensive in a sexual way. “she began to gyrate to the music and sing a lewd song.”
Definition of lascivious = filled with or showing sexual desire: lewd, lustful, lascivious acts/thoughts
Sex Is For Marriage, No Sex Outside Marriage!
I strongly encourage you not to have sex outside of marriage. Yes, the experience of sex is very pleasurable, yet the consequences of sin are not worth the momentary ecstasy one experiences. The problem is that when it is so prevalent in our society with all the media.
Taking the Bible out of the schools, teens and others have lost the moral compass that God’s word offers. Combined with peer pressure, hormones, and the lust of the flesh, it can be challenging to withstand the temptation to give in to the immediate gratification of sex. Sex is a beautiful thing that many in our society have made into such a dirty and lustful thing!
