What Does the Bible Say About Extra-marital Sex?

The body is not for immorality, but for the Lord; and the Lord is for the body…Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ?  Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot?  May it never be! Or do you not know that the one who joins himself to a harlot is one body with her?… Flee immorality.  Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body. (1 Corinthians 6:13,15,18).

For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. (Ephesians 5:5).

For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that is, that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in lustful passion, like the Gentiles who do not know God. (1 Thessalonians 4:3-5).

Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge. (Hebrews 13:4).

One thought on “What Does the Bible Say About Extra-marital Sex?

  1. Hi,
    I am really very happy to read that our bodies are for the Lord and not the means of sin. Sin is committed by men and women but things have gone further. I have heard that in U.S all 50 states have agreed to allow gay marriages as legal .This may have been a victory to Democracy but it is a put off to all decent people in these states. It is also an eye opener to the religious organizations that they practically could do nothing in this regard.
    Thanks.
