We were just talking about this over here.
It’s not a good idea. In no situation is it wise. The three biggest reasons are:
1) It’s sex with someone who’s not your spouse. That’s adultery, and God says no. Jesus encountered a woman who had just been caught in the very act, and He said, “go and sin no more.”
2) It binds people together. God designed it that way so that married people could easily become one. Sex before marriage leads to people being ripped apart later on. You damage the inward parts of your very self. Marriage makes sex safe.
3) Kids are meant to grow up with an intact family. Sex outside of marriage leads to either kids out of wedlock or the temptation for abortion. No contraception is infallible. Don’t take the risk.
For God, your current partner, future spouse, your kids, and lastly for yourself, don’t do it.
“Jesus loved the outcasts. He loves the ones the world just loves to hate.” Relient K
Yup. And the Bible says that one day every knee will bow, and every tongue will confess it.
But only those who believe in Him before it’s too late will be saved. It’s kind of an urgent matter.
It’s not true. It’s totally a lie.
The truth is that there will always be situations in life where we’re in over our head. Where we don’t have what it takes to overcome. This life is way too much for us to handle on our own.
We need Jesus.
With God all things are possible. Through Him we are more than conquerors.
It’s a huge deception that we “got this.” We were always meant to live leaning on His strength.
Don’t give up! This is just about the least favorite promise that Jesus gave:
"Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows."
Isn’t that just the most comforting thing? Not really.
But He follows it up with one of the most quoted parts of the Bible:
"But take heart, because I have overcome the world."
There’s a bigger picture. God has overcome. Keep believing and don’t doubt. He’ll come through.
You’re a Christian if you trust in Jesus and obey what He commanded. Are you doing that?
His desires come before mine.
His happiness is more important than mine.
My time with Him takes top priority.
I love Him more than I love anyone else.
Everyone who doesn’t trust in Jesus and obey what He says is in danger of eternal destruction. There’s one way out and that’s the Son of God’s sacrifice and victory over death. We’ve got to let people know!!
