More than likely you or someone you know is "messin’ around". Some call it premarital sex; others call it marriage out of wedlock. However, what seems right in the heat of the moment is not worth its cost in the end.When you have sex with anyone other than your spouse, things happen, bad things.If it’s true that you don’t want to look back someday after the romantic feelings subside (and they will), and regret you lost (amongst other blessings) valuable time. Then, ask God for discernment as you listen to others’ advice.
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? -46) “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.” (John ) “Let love be without dissimulation.) “And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.” (Matt.19:9) “And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.” (Mark ) “Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.” (Rev.)Fornication/Sex“For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders.” (Mark ) “But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood” (Acts ) “Flee fornication.Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that commiteth fornication sinneth against his own body.” (1 Cor.It takes one time to lose your virginity, one time to contract an STD, one time to become addicted to sexual immorality, one time for your fiancé’s respect for you to dissipate forever… The Bible states that while sin is pleasurable for a season, the after effects are horrible. Repent and stay pure until you’ve said your wedding vows. If you choose to ignore the unrest in your spirit and continue on with this person you just don’t think you can live without, I’ll tell you what comes next -- excuses!…you doubt the person you are dating is “the one” you are meant to marry and fear keeps you from breaking off the relationship. Draper wrote, “Doubt never means yes and always means no or wait a while: God does not lead through doubt. Don’t go so far as justifying staying in a relationship you’ll wish you had abandoned later.If you can’t get peace, that is an answer.” When God opens the door for marriage in your life, you will know that you know you are with the right person. Here’s why: in the dating world, thoughts like, “I can’t break up because…,” mean that doubt has given the keys to fear which will drive you down a rough road containing potholes of confusion and bumps of anxiety.If you aren’t 100 percent certain that things should progress, you’d better take a time-out from the relationship and pray for God to clearly confirm His will! If that’s not enough, your joy tank will eventually read empty.Anyone ever crossed your path leaving a comment or two that spoke directly to your heart? Are family and/or friends at all iffy about your decision to move forward with the one you are presently dating? Are you dating someone who does not have a personal relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ? There are no guarantees in life, and this includes the salvation of your current date. Rather than take a defensive approach to their input, consider that emotions can hamper your ability to see as clearly as those positioned on the outside-looking-in to your life. Most Christians who hang onto a non-believer actually think they are the best chance that their unsaved date will ever have for knowing Jesus? Someone has already coined a word for this false evangelistic strategy.
