Why is sex such a sin?

Is it because it's so much fun? The early Christian church did seem to preach that all forms of enjoyment other than prayer were sinful. It just seems that this, more than most others, is the hangup from those days many cannot let go of. Am I wrong?

  • It's a sin outside of marriage. It's in the 10 commandments.

  • The ten commandments says not to commit adultery. Is it interpretation that says premarital sex is adultery, or is there a verse that says so?

  • I believe that sex within a marriage relationship is not a sin, but a blessing. The bible says (not in the commandments) that all fornicaters will burn in the lake of fire. So for me....no marriage, no sex.

  • Sex isn't a sin unless it anal sex and it has to be within the confines of marriage and dare i say between a man and woman if we are talking about religious beliefs. if not then society i guess dictates what would be good or not

  • Sex drive is another besides hunger one of the strongest drives that a human creature has, and unless it gets out of control, just like eating, hurts us or other person emotionally or physically, the only sin I see as an atheist is giving people guilt trip about it.

  • Yup your worng. The Bible doesnt say sex is wrong, it says that sex when our not married is wrong. Sex is designed to be a special thing between a husband and wife. Its supposed to be sacred and beautiful. Not this cheap act that society has made it. Personally, i dont care what the "early church" (i'm assuming you mean the catholic church which I reject as a whole) taught. I have the Bible, and have the ability to study it. God never meant for sex to be wrong, just for it to be between a married couple. Not random people cuz they feel like it. There's a HUGE difference.
