Ok… I realize I am stepping on some toes asking this question, but a friend and I were talking about this, and I am curious…is it really all that wrong to have sex before you are married if you are in a committed relationship? Also, if you feel it is wrong, how do you explain that to someone who is not Christian? I would prefer to move away from the “parroted” answers (sex is bad, we’ll all get diseases, etc.) and actually have a substantial discussion with truthful answers.
I am asking to best answer this question for myself, and for my friend’s sake. Where is the Scripture to support one’s views on this…for or against the subject matter?
This is my faith hurdle. —Carrie
