Sex Before Marriage: Why Netflix and Chill Would TOTALLY Be In the Bible

4. 7 Myths Christians Believe About Sex

People will believe just about anything. So it’s no wonder that the more sex before marriage prospers as a cultural norm, the more rules and regulations we tend to believe about it.

But it doesn’t take a genius to tell you that not everything you hear is true. Frank Powell’s piece, “7 Myths Christians Believe About Sex,” is the perfect addition to this list for exactly that reason. Whether we justify sex “because everyone else is doing it,” or believe that obedience in purity leads to better sex, even the purest of believers sometimes need some cold hard truth.

5. What Does the Bible Say About Sex Before Marriage?

Well, to be honest…not a whole lot. The bible talks A LOT about sex and what not to do, (commit adultery, lay with your brother’s wife, etc.), but people in the Bible apparently liked cheating on their spouse more than having sex before marriage.

At least, that’s what God speaks to the most. Still, there’s enough in the Bible that talks about the sanctity of marriage and the two becoming one that we can look to those Truths and learn the truth about sex before marriage.

John Mark Comber shares a powerful illustration of a chair with only three legs. When we give a piece of our soul to someone by having sex before marriage, it’s like a chair losing one of its legs.

Sex is truly a beautiful and wonderful gift from God.

Historically, as God’s people, we haven’t done the best job of respecting our bodies and using sex for what it was created for — to honor and serve the Lord.

May these five articles help you in your pursuit of purity and clear up any gray areas about sex before marriage.
