God is the creator of sex. One of his purposes in creating sex was for our pleasure. But God also set limits on the enjoyment of sex--for our protection. According to the Bible, when we stray outside those protective boundaries, we enter into sexual immorality. This extensive collection of Scriptures is provided as an aid to those who wish to study what the Bible says about sexual sin.
A word that carries many different connotations in our culture today. The sexual revolution has been ever expanding its influence and changing terms and definitions ever since. What does the Bible say about sex? God created sex to be a holy union, a coming together between a husband and wife, to enjoy the pleasure that two bodies were created to experience. The pornographic industry is one the largest entertainment industries out there. Virtually every entertainment and health magazine on the newsstand displays a half-naked woman or man selling, market, and promoting promiscuity and sexuality.
What does the Bible say about? The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband. For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. However, in the Lord, neither is woman independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. The man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him. So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place. You husbands in the same way, live with your wives in an understanding way, as with someone weaker, since she is a woman; and show her honor as a fellow heir of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered.
