Otherwise only you say it does, which means nothing.

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
So G-d changed His mind?...

And I think that one cannot be judged without the other present?

For sure it's a huge problem. I believe the latest stats point to almost 9 out of 10 adults fornicating in American society, which is supposed to be the most "Christian" of nations in the world. Yet unlike homosexuality, people don't usually like to talk about it. Perhaps it is much easier for straight men and women to condemn a sin they don't struggle with, vs. a sin that is far more rampant (statistically) among professed Christians.


The Apostle Paul made no such distinctions. Homosexuality and fornication are equal among sins offensive to God in both the OT and NT. Christians who speak out against homosexuality, and yet ignore heterosexual fornication, are not following the Bible. Both sins are the same kind of abomination toward Him. If we're going to be Biblical Christians, we must guard our hearts and minds against both.

did you all know that the U.S.A started to get into the marriage business by issuing licences for racist reasons?



Racism, eugenics, and the marriage license - Piscataquis Observer

The marriage license is a dark and horrible over-reach from government with its roots in racism and the eugenics movement. Its genesis comes from the anti-miscegenation laws, which were brought over from England. Such laws prevented intermarriage between races in an effort to maintain racial purity.

These types of laws were more often used to target the intermarriage between whites and blacks than any other as blacks were the prime target of eugenic scientists and believers, who were convinced negro blood was inferior and weakened the human race. This horrible belief system fomented in our society until culminating with Supreme Court case of Loving v. Virginia in 1967.

Until the 1920s, the concept of a marriage license was non-existent. Simply put, the marriage license was created to prevent whites from marrying blacks. Government agents were gatekeepers or agents to prevent the intermingling of “dysgenic unions” by which “the superior groups (whites) risks polluting their germ plasms with inferior hereditary traits.”

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.
If you're happily backsliding, are you sure you really ever were saved? Christians desire to glorify God, not glory in sin.
