Biblical Principles for Dating Relationships: Principle 4

Principle 4: Recognize that Sexual Intimacy Is Reserved Exclusively for a Marriage Relationship

The Bible makes this clear in the following passages: Genesis 2Open Link in New Window: 24, Exodus 20Open Link in New Window: 14, Leviticus 20Open Link in New Window: 10, Mark 10Open Link in New Window: 6-12, and 1 Corinthians 6Open Link in New Window: 12 – 7: 9.  Sexual intimacy with someone who is not your spouse within the context of a marriage covenant is adultery, which is a violation of the seventh commandment and was punishable under the Levitical Law by death.  This is clearly a sin that had serious physical consequences in the Old Testament times and has serious relational and spiritual consequences today.
