The comments were interesting to say the least.
I was then thinking, for those who are religious, in both the Quran and the Bible, sex before marriage is a no-no. It has always been that way except those that did their thing on the down low...
Now, everything is about sex. It's everywhere. It's on tv, internet, magazines, on the train, bus, walking. It's literally IN YOUR FACE.
A lot of people don't believe sex is restricted to marriage anymore. It's an old-fashioned thing that has faded out/fading out and God understands that in the 21st century, He can't hold us down to laws of the Bible days. Others say you have to try it out first before marriage so you both know if you're sexually compatible because sex is a biggie in marriage. If the sex ain't right, then it will mess up the marriage or something along that line.
Also, people are waiting till they're older i.e. 30s and 40s to get married unlike in previous years when people got married in their late teens/early twenties. How many people are going to wait till they're 30 to have sex?
Does the standard of the Bible/Quran change for different generations? Maybe I missed the memo when it did.
1 Corinthians 7:2 clearly states,
'Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.'
In the Quran, Allah says in the Quran 17:32,
'Do not even go near zina (fornication) for it is a very indecent thing and a very evil way.'
I grew up in the Church knowing that sex is wonderful and great and for everyone. It was created by God for our pleasure BUT only withing the boundaries of marriage. It's supposed to be between a man and his wife pere. No more no less. Now, it's like everyone does it, kids at 10, 11, 12 have been going at it for years, it's nothing serious or sacred.
I was watching a medical reality show on TV last month. It was about a sexual clinic in North England and some of its patients.
One of the teenagers in the show had slept with about 80 other guys within 3 months. I kid you not. I actually had to rewind and record o.
The reason why we knew about how many partners he had slept with was because dude had contracted a couple of STDs and what nots. He had to remember or try to remember how many people he had slept with and then give in their contact details so that they would be given the opportunity to come in for tests and medication.
I can't judge anyone, but that's plain NASTY.
One of the sexual health nurses made a comment that sex today for young people is now a form of entertainment that they indulge in.
I think the state of moral decline in the world is very sad and disheartening. I personally believe sex is reserved for marriage. It should be a relationship builder. God said it's a sin in the Bible/Quran. Sin leads to hell. I am not condemning anyone o, but there are no buts or whatifs with God. It's not easy, I'll be honest. It gets really difficult especially if you're dating a FINE BOY and there's so much chemistry zapping around between you too and you just want to say 'sod it' lets get this thing done...
A couple of people I have spoken to that have been honest have said that they know what they're doing is wrong, and it's a sin, but oh well! It is what it is. I would rather someone is honest and says that rather than as my mum says give me dirty excuses to cover up.
Then again, who am I to say that their excuses are dirty? Am I God? I should sort out my anger and unforgiveness before telling people they are going to hell for having sex before marriage.
If they're going to hell, they might as well enjoy the walk to hell. *I CAN'T BELIEVE I SAID THAT o-:*
For all the holier than thous out there, just because you don't commit fornication and or adultery doesn't mean that that white lie you told or that 50 pence you 'borrowed' isn't less than a sin. Sin is sin be it murder or lust or hatred... All sin!
PS: Will telling a lie to protect the feelings of others or stopping a huge catastrophe like murder still be a sin? I wish God will be clear cut in those kinda issues.
This is hilarious
Let me know what you honestly think about sex before marriage...
PS: There's a poll at the top of the page. Be honest! :-)
