What does the Bible say about? Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous. For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God; that no one transgress and wrong his brother in this matter, because the Lord is an avenger in all these things, as we told you beforehand and solemnly warned you. For God has not called us for impurity, but in holiness.
I Kept My Virginity, But Not My Purity: Part One
How reliable was the virginity test mentioned in Deuteronomy 22?
The girl was very beautiful, a virgin, and no man had had relations with her; and she went down to the spring and filled her jar and came up. And she shall remain his wife; he cannot divorce her all his days. For as a young man marries a virgin, So your sons will marry you; And as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, So your God will rejoice over you. For I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy; for I betrothed you to one husband, so that to Christ I might present you as a pure virgin. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.
Truly, that is a miracle worthy of celebration! We live in a hyper-sexual world. Sexual sins are not only accepted in this generation but also are celebrated.
