    Hello all

    I discuss with a Christian girl, she said it's ok to make sex with any person before marriage .

    Does Bible said it's ok that women make sex with men without marriage ?
    Or encourage sex under marriage contract relationship ?

    Depends on the specific Christian belief system. Most say 'no,' it's not a good idea to have sex outside of marriage.

    Some (a very few) don't have a problem with it. One or two (very small groups) celebrate the idea. Don't take one person's declaration of what "Christianity" says is OK to be binding on all Christianity. That's as dumb as having an atheist tell you that all atheists think that it is important to take bubble baths every day....with floating yellow rubber duckies.

    Unless of course you are a troll, then.................never mind.

    You read it and see what you think. Adultery is certainly frowned upon.

    Tell that girl that Uncle Terry says: "Quit trying to get Godobeyer into bed with you, you're making a fool of yourself and giving Christianity a bad reputation."

    Sounds like she may be coming on to you.:D But seriously, the Bible does not encourage sex outside of marriage.

    1 Corinthians 7:1- 9
    Particularly verse 8, and 9
    8 Now I say to those who are unmarried and to the widows that it is better for them if they remain as I am. 9 But if they do not have self-control, let them marry, for it is better to marry than to be inflamed with passion.

    Also, it might be good to research "fornication", and then examine all the places in the Bible that mentions the word.

    Depends how many men are around that need a dark alleyway to marriage you. It could be there are no men around in the shadows, looking to marriage you, because you may be ugly. So, then you got to be a Nun.

    I just remembered this...
    Proverbs 5:15-20
    15Drink water out of your own cistern, and tricklings out of the midst of your own well. 16Should your springs be scattered out of doors, [your] streams of water in the public squares themselves? 17Let them prove to be for you alone, and not for strangers with you. 18Let your water source prove to be blessed, and rejoice with the wife of your youth, 19 a lovable hind and a charming mountain goat. Let her own breasts intoxicate you at all times. With her love may you be in an ecstasy constantly. 20So why should you, my son, be in an ecstasy with a strange woman or embrace the bosom of a foreign woman?

    Why not, given that a biblical marriage is simply a personal agreement between two people to shack up together and doesn't require a legally signed marriage contract and witnesses or a wedding celebrant?

    And afterall Abraham even shacked up with his sister Sarah, and it wasn't a sin for him to commit adultery with Hagar either. Nor was it a sin for him to kill his son as a blood sacrifice, or for Cain to kill Abel since the ten commandments etc didn't apply to them, given that biblical morality is just man made
