Is sex before marriage OK? What is your Opinion?
If you are a Christian, where do you fall in the sex before marriage argument? Statistics state that 80 percent of unmarried evangelical young adults (18 to 29) say they are having sex. The average age for marriage for women in the 90’s used to be 24 now, according to the U.S Census Bureau that same age has climbed up to 27 and for men 29.
While The Bachelorette did open quite the discussion forum for those who fall on various sides of the spectrum in this argument; know that God’s promises can be trusted and there is a reward for honoring Him with our bodies, especially with sex, that can become an idol quickly. Don’t exchange intimacy with God for an idol. On the other hand, if you have had sex outside of marriage God does still love you, He is just calling us to a different way of living, a different loving standard. If you are a believer, take up the challenge and see what God can do through your obedience to Him in this area.
