The OP implied personal choice and action. Molestation and rape are not the subject of this thread. That is a diversion.

Or are you talking about a wild, drunken or licentious festivity; an unbridled indulgence of passion while dancing?

No doubt, neither could be hidden from the Spirit.
LOL you know what the Bible says.

Why the attack? The Bible is clear on the subject, you might try reading it some time.

An argument doesn't end with a question mark; it begins with one.

"Not having a wedding" lets me off the hook. Respecting institutions may take work; may take play. But in any case it makes a person's day.

If you want a direct scriptural answer to this, it is Yes.

Scripture indicates fornication is wrong. (Eph. 5:5, Col. 3:5, etc.)

Fornication:{Dictionary Online}

1. voluntary sexual intercourse outside marriage 2. law voluntary sexual intercourse between two persons of the opposite sex, where one is or both are unmarried 3. Bible sexual immorality in general, esp adultery

Sin is defined as, "Fault, or missing the mark, divine transgression." So if one believes that the bible represents God's standards, then this is how morality is judged. If one doesn't accept scripture, then it doesn't matter; they set their own morality or allow others to do it for them.

This does not mean it is unforgivable. King David committed some grave sins, yet found favor with God. I'm sure most of us have transgressed parental law, but were still able to maintain a loving relationship with them and even be forgiven.
Totally agree.... it is a sin !

Forgive me if I'm wrong but what if a person that has lost their virginity just does not keep sleeping around with different people and have sex wisely?

It makes no difference how many sins or how bad you might think they are, it's the disobedience to the law and commandments of God that causes you to die during this age. The penalty of sin is death but a few saints and Jesus were made sinless and came alive in the spirit of God. Even though their flesh dies, they remain as the Holy Spirit who will live in new bodies in paradise to rule over the rest of God's living creation in their new bodies.

Sinners can't stop sinning so if you sleep with a hundred people before you're married, your flesh will die as a penalty for those sins.

Not if you accept Jesus as your savior
