Nowadays, saving yourself for marriage is considered old fashioned and even unrealistic practice. And if you think this opinion is limited to the “unchurched,” think again. An estimated 40 percent of professing Christians engaged in sex outside of marriage. Yet, the Bible is pretty clear on the issue.
It’s no surprise to most that the Bible considers sex outside of marriage a no-no. But if you ask why, most Christians and non-Christians alike would probably share the same answer: “It’s a sin.”
While that’s true, it’s much deeper than that. And Jon Jorgenson has an eye-opening explanation of why God intended sex for husband and wife only.
“Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled.” -Hebrews 13:4
