  • Yes it is, but also remember that God is a loving and forgiving God. He still loves you and He still loves your child. Ask for forgiveness of your sin and God has forgotten it.

  • The Bible says in Hebrews 13:4 that marriage is honorable and the bed should not be defiled -- which means that sex should only occur between a husband and wife.

  • It states that adultery is a sin (ten commandments Exodus ch 13). Jesus expounded on this when He stated that if we LOOK at a woman (or in our case man) to lust after them, we've already committed adultery. Also, in several places in the New Testament (one place is 1 Thessalonians 4:3) we are told to flee from fornication. Since a person whose not married had sex in order to get pregnant, then having SEX before marriage is a sin.

  • I agree with both buuterfly2momma's and vicki1130's answers. Fornication is the sin, the precious baby isn't.

  • Well, it does say that pre-marital sex is wrong..and unless your Mary you cannot have a baby without having sex...SO with that said I think it is.. to answer your question!

  • In this day and age a woman does not necessarily have to have sex in order to get pregnant. So I wonder if the OP is basing her question on something such as if a woman conceives via IVF is she committing a "sin"

  • If she gets pregnant due to the act of premarital sex (sex outside of marriage) the sexual act is a sin. If she gets pregnant due to IVF as kristiS11384 stated - no the pregnancy or having a baby is not a sin.
