Uncovering the Truth: Premarital Sex Is Not Inherently a Sin
Ever since I met Giovanni four years ago, I often wonder if premarital sex is a sin or another man-made concept. A veces pienso que yo escuche Dio e que El mande que yo dé Giovanni mi cuerpo. But this command cannot be from God if premarital sex is a sin because God never tells humans to sin. Yesterday I got my answer from the chapter the verse of the day came from – Romans 1. Premarital sex is not inherently a sin; it is only a sin if people do it to rebel against God and make a sexual partner an idol.
In Romans 1:18-25, God explains that premarital sex came about when humans rejected God’s word. Verses 20-21 say that God made it known to humans the difference between righteousness and unrighteousness through the things He created, but humans rejected His word. Instead, they began to follow other gods, including other humans (Romans 1:23-24).
When they began sleeping with people who worshiped other gods, they began to follow the sins of these people (Romans 1:32). Throughout the Old Testament, God explains how His people often hooked up with other religions and followed the sins of their gods.
The problems premarital sex cause of worshiping other gods who command hatred shows that God only condemns premarital sex because humans worship other humans and their gods. Like all sin, premarital sex is only a sin when we want something contrary to God and rebel against Him because we think that our way is better.
