Her comment to my celibacy post was:
" k, couple of things: wait until marriage? DUDE, thats like buying a car without test driving (PS it actually doesn't say wait until marriage in the bible... it just tended to be prostitutes who had sex before marriage. BECAUSE, when men realized the role they played in reproduction they developed a patriarchal system bc they don't wanna be involved in raising another man's child... So says Simone de Beauvoir anyway)
Thing number 2: I am Christian, but I've got mad beef with christianity... I mean really, does God care who you have sex with? Who you love etc? I hope not! Love is love. Sex is a part of that, marriage or no. I'm pretty sure God is more chill then most religions give Her credit for! "
Laura, sweetie, have you read the Bible? For if you called yourself a Christian, you are a follower of Jesus Christ who is a MAN. God the FATHER and the Holy Spirit. So, this ubiquitous "Her" is not God.
Secondly, God speaks down on 4 sex sins in the Bible: FORNICATION, Adultery, Homosexuality, and Beastiality.
What is fornication, babes? Having sex outside of marriage.
Instead of believing this Simone person, go to the Source!
Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled: but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.
Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma. But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as it is fitting for saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jetting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idoltar, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
And if sex is apart of love, if you "test-drive" the car and it is not good, what? You won't love the person anymore?
What is the difference between a wife and a girlfriend?
And if sex doesn't mean anything, why does it change everything?
Last verse (and you should read 1 Corinthians Chapters 5-7)
This verse is from 1Cor 7:8-9
But I say to the unmarried and the widows: it is good for them if they remain even as I am; but if they cannot exercise self control, let them marry. For it is better to marry than to burn with passion.
I suggest you don't leave your convictions up to heresay and you search for the answers yourself. Judgment is a sin just as fornication or killing, so I am not judging you, I'm defending my beliefs just as you presented yours. I hope you find peace and truth.
