  • It is called a sin by the name of fornication. We are told to flee fornication and to abstain from all immorality, into which category fornication falls. The Bible further teaches that sex is a wonderful gift from God but is to be enjoyed only within the confines of marriage. It is one of God's boundaries that is set for our good when it is honored and which causes us great harm when it is dishonored.

  • IhartU, those things happened in the OT, and they are not approved of in the NT. The Old Covenent ended and the New Covenent began with the Christ's death on the cross.

    In answer to the OP's question, sex before marriage is a sin. It is called fornication.

  • Nannyb hit the nail on the head. Sex was meant for the marriage bed, not outside of it.

    As for the concubines, man decided that one was okay, not God. But for whatever reason, it was allowed. We are no longer under Old Testament Law.

  • Don't know about the holy Bible but Indian culture looks down upon such things.It is seen as a stigma on the whole family name if U get pregnant b4 marriage.That's why such incidents are rare.

  • NannyB. ... confines of marriage? What about all that concubine love throughout the Bible that your God had no problem with and even suggested at times as well as the incest? As for what falls under the term fornication- that is up for interpretation and debate.

  • "Shaneagle777... Many characters in the Bible had concubines, had sex with them and produced children. God said nothing about it- so therefore his silence says everything because he was always busting out rules for everyone to follow or be damned and not having concubines was not one of them."

    Actually, that's another mistranslation. The Hebrew word that has been wrongfully translated into "concubine" is pilegesh, which is more accurately a "half-wife". Even Hagar wasn't Abraham's "concubine", Abraham took her as a "wife", but second, of course to his first wife, Sarah. Polygamy wasn't forbidden in the OT, although it was restricted.

  • Purpleducky - I think this refers to "sealing the deal" so to speak. Until the marriage was consummated they were not fully husband and wife, but the act of sex alone did not create a marriage.
