Is a sexual relationship between two close single people - a needed process -
a natural function of our bodies - an expression of love - a drawing together of two into one -
part of God's plan for us?

 

First of all, what does the bible call sex between two single people?

for-ni-ca-tion\,for-ne-ka-shen\ n 1: human sexual intercourse other than between a man and his wife: sexual intercouse between a spouse and an unmarried person: sexual intercourse between unmarried people 2: sexual intercourse on the part
of an unmarried person accomplished with consent and
not deemed adultery.
(Merriam-Webster Dictionary)

Now, what does the Bible say about this? In First Corinthians chapter six it says:

9 Do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals...

13 Food is for the stomach and the stomach for food; but God will do away with them, Yet the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord. 18 Flee fornication. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body; but he that commits fornication sins against his own body. 19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? 20 For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.

First Corinthians chapter seven says:

2 But because of fornications, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband. 9 But if they do not have self-control, let them marry; for it is better to marry than to burn.

In Galatians chapter five it says:

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these, Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

There are many more scriptures in the Bible besides these. If you have been having a problem with sex outside of marriage, God can help you gain control of this.

First, you must know that you have the Holy Spirit dwelling within you. Surrender your life to Jesus and His works on the cross. Tell Him so in prayer.

Second, you might need deliverance. See a pastor who believes in deliverance.

Third, you will need to renew your mind. Reading the scriptures, thereby learning who you are as a Christian and respecting yourself, who others are and respecting them, and who God is and that you can depend on Him for all things will give you the mental clarity to keep your mind on the right things.
