Why Is Sex A Sin? by Ignatio(m): 9:50pm On Feb 06, 2013
This thought came to mind when I was about to get in the act. Silly it may seem but I've to let it out. Why is it seen as a sin or is it because the bible said so? If animals can have intercourse with one another without any form of marital obligation binding them why can't we humans? I believe intimate urge is part of the human nature so why can't we express it without fear that we're doing something wrong. Must we be married to have sex.

NB- intimate abuse or abuse of sex is wrong.

This is very insightful. NICE!!
Se.x itself is not(and cannot be) sin. The real "sin" is se.x-abuse; meaning se.xual-immorality; meaning fornication. Abuse is either unnatural or illegal(without consent) se.x, including r.ape, bestiality, homo\bi-se.xuality, pedophilia, idolatry, etc

You do not need marriage to enjoy se.x. Marriage as we know it is a invention\tradition of man, not of god. Se.x between consenting adult male and female CANNOT be sin, it is a nature and it is godly expression. This is the freedom that christ has given you: the infinite right to go as you "please", to express your true self without the conscience of the law in the way to condemn you with it's: "Thou shalt not..., thou shalt not...". If god cannot sin, then whatsoever is of god's nature(pleasures of eating, drinking and s.ex) cannot be sin. Enjoy...

BECOS OF PROBLEM IT MAY BRING THAT IS WHY JESUS ASK US TO MARRY ONLY ONE AND STOP WRONG SEX .@ OP, IF U SE ME HAVING SEX WITH YOUR WOMAN WILL U BE HAPPY WITH ME? THAT IS WHAT U ARE ASKING ARE U OK NOW? SEX IS FOR EVERY BODY AT THE TIME U MARRY UR HUSBAND OR WIFE. ANY SEX BEFOR U MARRY IS SIN IF U LIKE CALL IT THE PERSON U WANT TO MARRY.

Sex is never a sin, was never a sin and will never be a sin. Sin is a control statement used by religion for population control.

You also believe that people must be slaves because the bible supports slavery and it is a sin for slaves not to obey their masters. Right?

Back to the topic, humans have a jealous nature. People that share something intimate sure won't love it to leave their circle. I can have a girlfriend whom I share some special things with exclusively. I don't think having sex makes us sinners. I believe it's all about choice.

I still remember David, Solomon and their numerous wives and concubines but, God still favoured them. Even Abraham had intercourse with his slave girl, his wife consenting.

Good question. Meanwhile sex isn't a sin but fornication/adultery is. But if you look at what's happening in d world right now even in the church(pastors themselves), you begin to wonder if there are something we don't know that they know. Just believe and practice what the bible says
Re: Why Is Sex A Sin? by ihedioramma: 8:07am On Feb 07, 2013
@OP THAT IS WHY JESUS CAME AND DIE FOR OUR SIN. TO MARRY 2 AND HAV GIRL FRD U HAV SEX WITH IS A SIN,SOLOMON DID THAT MAY BE HE DID NOT NO, THAT IS WHY HE ASK FOR WISDOM.

Good morning okeyxyz,

The above is an interesting thought and assuming I don't know any better, I would have believed you. Anyways, I know enough to say the above is unchristian.

Thanks!

@ Okeyxyz

What can you say about this scripture

1 Corinthians 7:2
Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
Re: Why Is Sex A Sin? by Goshen360(m): 3:10pm On Feb 07, 2013
Hello everyone,

This is sooooooo hard for me to say but I have to say it anyway with a pure and open heart. In all my Christian life, I've being made to believe that fornication is s.ex between unmarried Christians while Adultery is s.ex between two married people outside their marriage. After talking with our brother okeyxyz via email. Brother okeyxyz said something to me that are hard to believe like the teachings of Apostle Paul. He then made reference that his definition of fornication is NOT his own inventions but as DEFINED IN STRONG'S CONCORDANCE. Since I have Strong's concordance, I wanted to proof our brother wrongs and thinking I will get hold of him, alas, he was right in his definition. I also consulted 7 other bible dictionaries I have in my library, NONE of them defined fornication as s.ex between two unmarried people.

Well, I challenge you to do the same research before you quote me. I hereby challenge everyone to get to the meaning of the word 'fornication' as it appeared EVERY WHERE in scripture and let's have your definition. There's no where (from my research) scriptures say fornication to be s.ex between two unmarried people, it defined fornication as 'illicit or unlawful s.ex related to har.lot, prostitution and s.ex between one married and the other unmarried. It also have figurative meaning of idolatry'. I love to listen to people before I challenge them, then examine what is said if there's any truth therein. That's what I've done in this case with okeyxyz.

I came to this conclusion some months back, but it's difficult to share so I will rather keep it to myself.

However, we need a proper teaching on the matter so as not to run with half truth or give people license to live anyhow.

I'm still studying it, but in summary fornication is s.ex for idolatry purposes, s.ex just for s.ex sake and prostitution.

U didn't say what adultery is BTW.

Good afternoon Goshen,

Let's put this in proper perspective!

Why not start with the definitions you have at hand?

I will suggest that we do not rush into any conclusion just yet as your post suggests but go through this prayerfully and with sincerity. This is a topic, if wrongly addressed, can lead a brother or sister astray.


Thank you!

This same topic (fornication vs sex between unmarried people) was discussed a while back on NL - but 'religious' folk who refused to even listen derailed it by castigating the OP instead of actually considering what she was saying.
