6 Reasons Why It’s Still Smart to Wait Until Marriage
The Message Version of I Corinthians 6:16-20 brings up some points about sex outside of marriage that are strong enough to challenge anything that pop culture has to say about it. Aside from the fact that the Scripture opens up with “Sex is as much of a spiritual mystery as it is a physical fact”, it also states this as well: “Since we want to become spiritually one with the Master, we must not pursue the kind of sex that avoids commitment and intimacy, leaving us more lonely than ever - the kind of sex that can never ‘become one.’”
Although we’re living at a time when the “hook-up culture” is ever so popular (Luke 6:26-Message) and waiting until marriage may seem antiquated at best, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a lot to be said for maintaining not only old-fashion values about sex, but biblical standards too. Here are six reasons why, even now, it’s still smart to wait until marriage to have sex.
