  • Yes, anyone of us can look it up, but sometimes it is nice to ask other people what they think and what they know. That's why we all are on cafemom is for support and help and getting to know other mom's. We can learn from other people and the Bible too. Sometimes somebody's insight and knowledge is a lot more helpful. :)

  • I'm not sure as to what it says exactly, but I do know friends that have had children out of wedlock that, after being saved, have stayed celibate(spelling?) until they've gotten married. I do know that God forgives anyone who confesses their sins and anyone can start over again... I myself have fornicated to conceive my first child and shortly thereafter got married, but still wasn't saved... Now I am, and am working on my husband (pray for me!) Hope I've answered your question, God Bless!!

  • No disrepect meant here but...if it's that big a deal for you to need to know, why not just read the bible yourself and find what you need?

  • I somewhat agree with the above poster. I used to ask questions all of the time about the Bible, rather than looking it up myself. In the one I have there's an index in the back. You can search things by keyword. Good luck! The Bible has answered so many questions for me :)

  • What kind of answer are you looking for here? Are you trying to prove that it isn't a sin?

  • Most bible's (christian bibles) have a Concord i.e. a list of topic's and where to look them up at.

  • Concordance is the actual term, and there are some online that you can use. Google it if you like.

  • Yes, and it also says that women are considered impure, during that certain time of the month, and must remain in isolation during that time, and until they perform a sacrafical turdle dove for her sins.
