Callywood After Dark--Is Sex A Sin?
Many people think the bible says that sex outside of marriage is a sin. But the bible is unclear. In Exodus, chapter 20, in the 10 commandments, we are told you should not commit adultery. Adultery is not defined as having sex outside of marriage. It is defined as having sex with a married person. Nothing is said prohibiting sexual relations between two unmarried people. In fact, in Leviticus we are given a list of every situation in which we should not have sex. We're not to have sex with married people, or with family members, or with animals. We are not prohibited from having sex with an unmarried person who is not in our family. Some places in the bible state that fornication is a sin. Some wrongly interpret that to mean sex outside of marriage. That is not true. The greek translation identifies fornication as being any "illicit (illegal) sexual activity". But in Leviticus, the bible does not mention sex between two unmarried people as being illicit.
