SEX AND BIBLE

Post  Waqar Daniel on Wed 11 Jul 2007, 9:08 pm

Bible speaks greatly on unlawful sex and its consequences. There are two types of attitudes people have towards adultery.

  1. I did not know because I never read the Bible
  2. Jesus will forgive, He is my LORD and Savior

The first excuse has no value because if we look at our constitutional laws, it is clearly stated that ignorance is no blessing. Therefore, we cannot put up this excuse to save ourselves.

The second excuse is again very lame. Although we live under GRACE of God but Grace of God is no license to sin. On the contrary, For the Grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say "NO" to ungodliness and worldly passions and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age... (Titus 2:11-14)


The Mosiac Law
Under the Mosaic Law, twenty-eight (28) offenses called for the death penalty. Of these, 8 were for sexual offenses. Capital offenses relating to human sexuality are listed in the order in which they appear.

  1. Bestiality. A person having sex with an animal was to be executed along with the animal (Ex 22:19 and Lev 20:15,16).
  2. Adultery. A married person having sex with some other person was to be executed with the illegal partner (Lev 20:10 and Deut 22:22).
  3. A son having sex with his father's wife ( his mother or stepmother) was to be executed along with the partner (Lev 20:11).
  4. A man having sex with his daughter-in-law was to be executed with the partner (Lev 20:12).
  5. Male Homosexuality. Both men were to be executed (Lev 20:13 and Lev 18:22)
  6. A woman who has had sex while living in her father's house and then marries (presenting herself as a virgin) was to be executed after due process (Deut 22:13-21)
  7. A man who has sex with a virgin engaged to another, was to be executed (Deut 22:23-27)
  8. If an engaged virgin is inside the city and has sex with another man, that woman was to be executed along with her lover. If the virgin is outside the city, she may have been raped, so only the male is executed (Deut 22:23,24)

The only approved sex is, "heterosexual sex between legitimately married people." Varied cultures have different practices and procedures as to what constitutes a state of marriage. Like some countries make it legal to live as partners and after seven years living as partners, they call themselves as Husband and Wife. What we forget here is;

Do not follow the crowd in doing wrong (Exodus 23:2)

  1. The ideal is for a male and female virgin to marry and be entirely devoted to one another sexually until death parts them. Obviously, their sex is approved (See Pro 5:15-20, and Ro 7:1-3).
  2. If the mate dies, the widow (by assumption, a widower also) is free to remarry. The new sexual union is approved (Ro 7:2,3)
  3. If two non-virgins marry, having never been married in the past, their sexual union is approved (See Ex 22:16 and Deut 22:28,29)
  4. Legitimately divorced people are free to remarry. The Bible only recognizes two grounds for divorce.
    a) Sexual Immorality. If one's partner has sex outside the marriage bond, the violated partner is free to divorce and remarry (Mt 19:3-9). This includes all types of sexual infidelity.
    b) Qualified Desertion. A Christian deserted by a non believing mate, is free to divorce and remarry (I Cor 7:12-15)
  5. If a Christian woman does part from an unbelieving husband for any reason other than sexual unfaithfulness or qualified desertion, she must remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband (I Cor 7:10,11). By assumption, Christian husbands are under the same directive.
  6. The sex act creates a unique union between two people - they become one flesh (Gen 2:24 and I Cor 6:16)
  7. Sex in marriage should be directed toward satisfying each others physical need (I Cor 7:9)
  8. Usually, this union results in the privileges and responsibilities of procreation (Gen 1:28)
  9. A guilty mate who leaves his/her first marriage, by committing sexual immorality or by desertion, cannot engage in approved sex before God. Even if legally remarried in his/her given society, the sexual acts are still illegitimate before God. It is continuous adultery (Mt 19:9)
  10. No adulterer can enter God's approaching, eternal world (I Cor 6:9,10 and Gal 5:19-21)

If we chose to go against the God's word then we die, but if we chose to follow the commands of God we live. God Himself set this rule of life and death.

The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life (John 6:63)
