Love & Marriage

Biblical views of sex
In the last fifty years, our culture has shunned Biblical commands on sexual behavior and the the statistics are staggering:

83% of young unmarried people identifying themselves as Christians have had sex.

This 83% don't understand that God's commands are motivated by His deep love for them. 

Adultery statistics are difficult to track, but it's estimated that 30-60% of all married people have had an affair.

Sexual sin damages us, no matter how many people approve it. And our loving Heavenly Father wants to spare us that damage.

God gave His commands for our blessing and protection.

If you or someone you love is confused about God's sexual standards, pray for them and encourage them to study the only trustworthy guide to healthy human behavior -- the Bible. 

"...this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world." 1 John 5:3,4

  2. Gail-This post is so eye opening ... this world is in such need of God! It really encourages me to work at my marriage for the sack of my sons and the generations that follow... to give them an example of marriage and teaching the importance of saving themselves for marriage!

  4. I work as a marriage and family counselor, and sadly I see many marriages suffering because of adultery. The good news is that God can heal these marriages. Praise the Lord.

    Thanks,
