What the Bible does says about Sex in Marriage

1. We are to abstain from immoral sex.
The Bible indicates the following are sin:
  • fornication/unmarried sex (Ga 5:19, 1 Co 7:2 & 36)

    adultery (Ex 20:14, Mt 5:27)

    homosexuality (Le 18:22 , Ro 1:26-27)

    bestiality (Le 18:23 & 20:15-16)

    prostitution (Le 19:29, De 23:17, Pr 23:27, 1 Co 6:15-16)

    incest (Le 18:6)
2. We are to have sex only in marriage; one man with one woman. (Mt 19:4-5, 1 Ti 3:2 & 12)

3. We are to lovingly meet the legitimate sexual needs and wants of our spouse. (1 Co 7:3-5)

The preceding are all direct Biblical commands. In addition there are requirements set out for us as believers, and as husbands and wives, which add the following restrictions:

4. Love for our spouse, and respect for the bodies and minds God created, requires us to avoid anything which can cause serious problems: (Eph 5:29 & 33, 1 Co 6:19)
  • physically

    medically

    emotionally

    mentally

    spiritually

    relationally
5.We should never push our spouse to compromise their beliefs. (Ro 14:1 & 14 & 23)

6.We are not to be controlled by anything. (1 Co 6:12 & 10:23)
