Black christian dating guide sexuality single
Whether you’re never married, divorced, or widowed, if you want to have sex with someone, you must marry them.If they’re not the right one for you to marry, they’re for sure not the right one for sex!So did God really say a divorced person should not have sex? Sin is sin, but God bumps sexual sin up a degree because it’s a sin against your body that He created, His temple in you.Satan would challenge you, “Can you actually find those words in the Bible? Sex with anyone besides your husband or your wife is immoral, period, whether you’ve been married before or never married.I have to admit I was surprised to get a request from a women’s ministry director asking me what verses in the Bible she could give to a Christian woman she was mentoring who was divorced and now dating, but struggling with not having sex with her boyfriend.
So may I suggest you read a blog I wrote previously on What the Divorced Christian Wants You to Know.
But don’t rely on my word for it, look at what God’s Word says.
Every Scripture that addresses sexual immorality, lust, and adultery—sex outside of marriage or with someone who isn’t your spouse—is condemned by God, no exceptions whether you’re single, divorced, or widowed:“There’s more to sex than mere skin on skin. As written in Scripture, ‘The two become one.’ Since we want to become spiritually one with the Master, we must not pursue the kind of sex that avoids commitment and intimacy, leaving us more lonely than ever—the kind of sex that can never ‘become one.’ There is a sense in which sexual sins are different from all others.
But each has his own gift from God, one of one kind and one of another.
To the unmarried and the widows I say that it is good for them to remain single as I am.
