The Bible teaches sex before marriage is sin in Galatians 5.

There are other sexual sins listed there too, adultery for example.
But again, I have no right to assume that list in Galatians 5 lists "all sexual sins"
when there is no scripture testifying to such

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.
Even if you don't sin, which is impossible since you will, that doesn't establish a relationship with your heavenly father. Listen to Greg Laurie on youtube. He has great sermons which are entertaining yet based on the truth of scripture.
You will not have this temptation likely....(but nothing is guaranteed) to this degree when you establish a relationship with Christ. You will slowly conform to his image as promised, which lessens the need to sin. Sorta like when you eat healthy and exercise, the temptation for junk food is kept at bay because you are giving your body, naturally, what it needs.

Yes, they were put to death (Leviticus 20:10, Deuteronomy 22:22-24).

If a married man has sex with an unmarried women, is it adultery?
No, she became his wife (Genesis 4:19; 29:23-30; 31:17; 32:22; 36:2,6, Exodus 21:10, Deuteronomy 21:15-17; 25:5-10, Judges 8:30, 1 Samuel 1:2; 25:42-43; 30:18, 2 Samuel 5:13, 1 Kings 11:1-3, 1 Chronicles 4:5; 8:8; 14:3, 2 Chronicles 11:21; 12:7-8; 13:21; 24:3, Daniel 5:2-3).

If an unmarried man has sex with a married woman, is it adultery?
Yes, they were put to death (Leviticus 20:10, Deuteronomy 22:22-24).

If an unmarried man has sex with an unmarried woman, is it adultery?
No, they were commanded to marry each other (Exodus 22:16-17, Deuteronomy 22:28).
this is the old covenant.
Sexual sins are handled differently in the new and old covenants.

We are all the same, according to the spirit of Ama. He said that women should not use the ones to be used when we graduate. When is our graduation? He asked if we have seen someone who was abandoned when they got married. If that happens to married couples, how much easier will it be for single persons to be abandoned by her boyfriend or his girlfriend?

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.

I don't think Paul was forbidding masturbation. I think he meant if you can't refrain from hooking up, then you need to find a partner.

I think it would be pretty safe to say that offering up a list of human practices that IS NOT a 'sin' would make for a very short list. Has anyone ever attempted this?

why is sex a problem? Do some people have difficulty performing sexually?
