If you feel you have sinned, ask God to forgive you and then move on. Pray that God would lead you to a mate to share your life with.

"By your words you'll be justified and by your words you'll be condemned."

Says nothing about sex or anything else.

Certainly not if they are rational, mutually-agreeing adults.


(And probably ok if they're sensible 16+ teens who've gone steady for at least six months, take birth control/STD protection, and are pretty darn sure they love each other.)

I would read the scriptures yourself. Some on here are giving you bad advice. Sex is supposed to be reserved for marriage. Can you be forgiven ? Of course. But that doesn’t mean to just go sin even more.

There is only one sin.

Not believing.

As Jesus said; "Sin, because they do not believe in me."

The reason you think you sin is you do not BELIEVE.

If you truly believe you cannot sin. You may do things that are considered sin but they are already forgiven because you BELIEVE.

I had always learned, that, any sex before being married was considered a sin, also sexual acts upon oneself (sorry.) That, if not within marriage, were considered a sin in the eyes of the Lord.


Now, if the goal of a Christian life is to not sin, and honor God.. This has ALWAYS created great conflict for me.


I may be in this category because even if I have not had sex, I cannot say I am innocent of.



If I am saved, (and I am, just backsliding. I also accept Christ back in every time I hear Joel Osteen or go to a service.. I have been Water Baptized one time,) then I am not sure if these things even matter.


Can anyone with Christian background help me out? I'm not really interested in the "There is no God" thing because I know that there is, and that his name is Jesus, son of the Father, who sits on the throne. The three in one.
Well, if you believe the Bible, then yes, any sex outside of marriage is sin. This is unpopular, but true.

I would recommend visiting the thread on sexuality in humans and considering the list of pirposes for sex. Consider the idea that profligate sex, besides an element of risk for stds may also blunt sensibilities required for the bonding effect so helpful in relationships.

7. 1 Corinthians 7:8-9

To the unmarried and the widows I say that it is good for them to remain single, as I am. But if they cannot exercise self-control, they should marry. For it is better to marry than to burn with passion.

Paul clearly spells out that for unmarried, single people, God desires abstinence from sex for them. If abstinence is not something they can live with, then they should seek to get married. Its clear that sex within the context of marriage is not a sin, but outside of marriage it is sinful.
