An article in Boundless Webzine has a great disucssion on what the Bible says about premarital sex.
Which is, um, not very much.
I think it's interesting that the Evangelical Community makes premarital sex such a huge issue, when in fact the Bible really doesn't say that much about it. I mean Jesus thought it was so important that he never mentioned it once during his time on earth.
I'm not here to support premarital sex. But it does seem like another one of those issues where the Church is just intepreting the Bible to support what they believe. Not honestly reading the Bible and examining what it says.
Anyway, read the whole thing. I found it really interesting.
Oh, and it reminds me of something a friend in college told me, when I told him I thought sex before marriage was immoral.
"Justin, it's not pre-marital sex, if you don't plan on getting married."
