I'm only 13, I'm not going to. I'm just curious since me and my friend were arguing about it not too long ago. If your a christian and have pre-marital sex, would you go to hell? And where in the bible does it say that you will or won't?
Hailybre...You misread my answer... Please, read it again... and consider it.
I did not say you would go to Hell... what I did say, was that God does not take away the consequences... of sin.
By that I did not mean that he would not forgive... he does, when we realize that we are wrong... and our heart attitude is right.
But, the consequences will remain.
Meaning... Once you do sin, it will remain in your memory, and God can help you with that, but, it can never be truly erased... you will... occasionally think about things that you did, that were not right, in times past. I know that the bible says that this is the work of the enemy, but, why subject yourself to it? That is spiritual warfare, that you would not have to experience if you abstain from doing wrong, to begin with.
You have weapons to deal with the accusations of the enemy, but, if you do not enter into sin... you will be spared this effort.
Think also about other consequences, of sin.
Others know, and will remember. They are not as forgiving as God is.
You will know... and remember... and once you realize the gravity of sin, you will forever wish you had not done that thing...whatever it is.
The whole bible backs the thought that it is far better to not sin, than to sin, and live with the consequences.
Pregnancy, is also a consequence that follows...
A baby is a precious gift of God, not to be taken lightly.
Multitudes are currently being sacrificed on the alter of convenience.
God is not, nor never will be pleased with this kind of behavior.
He loves life, and children, and it is not his will that their lives should be cut short.
Also, think about submitting your body to the consequences of disease. Sexual disease... the last time I checked.. it was running rampant.
Once you have a sexually transmitted disease, it is not reversible.
You have to live with the consequences.. for the rest of your life.
You will have to try to convince the love of your life... why... or how.. you acquired this to begin with.
Is that really what you want to do?
If you truly have the Holy Spirit living within... you will not want to sin.
Jesus did not die, that we should live as we normally live.
He died to bring radical change to our lives.
To bring us to the point where his will is more important to us, than our own.
He is coming back for a bride.. without spot or blemish.
He said," If you love me, obey my commands."
If you had a child, and you told that child what was expected of him, and he continually did the exact opposite, over and over, and kept coming back and saying.."I'm sorry... mommie..." How long would it take you to realize that he really did not mean that at all... he was just taking advantage of your generosity?
Do you really want to do this to our Lord?
Your question has several levels involved in it, and I will try to answer as many of them as I can.
First, is pre-marital sex a sin, and where does the bible say one way or another. Yes, the scriptures do condemn sex outside of marriage, as an extension of the 6th commandment (or 7th depending on your denomination). The Greek word for "fornication" (pre-marital sex) is translated as "immortality" or "impurity" in many bibles. Christ refers to adultery and marriage only briefly in the Gospels (Mt. 5:27-32; 19:1-14). St. Paul is the one that specifically condemns fornication (Gal 5:19-21; Rom 1:28-32; 1 Cor 6:9-10; Eph 5:3-5; Col 3:5-9; 1 Tim 1:9-10; 2 Tim 3:2-5).
Next, will you go to hell for having pre-marital sex? In order for a Christian to go to hell he/she has to commit a mortal sin. Mortal sin has 3 parts, all of which have to be present. 1st, the action itself has to violate a commandment; St. Paul points out that pre-marital sex does that. 2nd, you have to knowledge. 3rd, you have to have full consent of the will.
In response to some: faith saves us, and good works come from sincere faith. "faith by itself if it has no works, is dead." (James 2:17) Someone who accepts Christ will follow his teachings: "If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love... This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you... You are my friends if you do what I command you." (John 15:10-14) Saying that you believe is not enough; "Not every one who says to me, 'Lord Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father." (Mt. 7:21 ff)
This does not mean that our works "earn" our way to heaven, because our faith and its response are a gift from God. However, it does mean that if you hear the word of God, it has to take root in your heart and “bear good fruit” as the parable of the sower says. Jesus points out that each branch that does not bear fruit will be cut off (John 15). If we don’t make an effort to feed the hungry, clothe the naked etc., we will be dismissed from the kingdom (Matthew 25). If we don’t have good works than our faith is dead.
We can’t judge each other, but each person will have to answer to God. The merciful will receive mercy, but not so for the unmerciful (see Matthew 18:21-35). We’re not trying to earn salvation by our good works, but rather passing on the blessings that God has given to us.
Hey sk8rangel4life , To me youre alitte too young to be asking such a serious question. Honestly, I think you should talk to your parents about things like this because if they too are so-called "christians" then they will lead you in the right direction. You shouldnt have to come to some forum to get your questions answered. The one thing everyone has failed to do is go to the Bible, the only place to get the right answer. I cant tell you a definite "yes" or "no" answer only God can or at least until we met him. Read the Bible I promise it will answer every question you have. So for your question the Bible says: Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body. (1 Corinthians 6:18-20) Basically, sexual sins like pre-marital sex is a sin we should run from. We cant trust ourselves, we fell every time when it comes to this aspect of life. We some how always feel the urge to sin sexually.
But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people. (Ephesians 5:3) Not even a HINT of sexual immorality!
Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-10) According to the Bible the answer is yes, you will go to hell, but the Bible also says that if you repent of your sins and turn away from them you are redeemed. This is why Jesus died on the cross. So if you choice to live in this sine you will go to hell, according to the Bible, but if you turn away and flee then you'll go to heaven. Easy as pie.
So here are versus that say what saves us Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Ro 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Ac 15:11 But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.
2Ti 1:9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
Eph 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
Sin is sin no matter what sin it is God does not see sin on levels if more evil or less evil the way man does...evil is evil no matter what... we are human we sin...but Christ died for that..so that we would be able to go to heaven and all you have to do is believe in you Heart what he has done and ask him to forgive you. Col 2:13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
1Jo 2:12 I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name's sake.
Romans 6:6 says how we are dead to sin and alive to God...he compleatly forgives us and we can lose that our salvation can never be taken away...even if we sin ( sex before marriage is a sin) I am saved if Igo have sex right now I am not married I would be committing a sin against God and my own Body...but yeah I would be saved still and I would still go to heaven...I think youy should read the bbile you will find many stories where people are forgiven and still saved who did wrong...that is not a reason to sin...God loves you no matter what but right is right and wrong is wrong...wait till marriage...and at the least till you are older. But No you will not go to HELL and you CAn NOT lose your salvation
There's a lot of spin-off theology here.
First, don't forget that the reason the New Covenant was created was because the Law doesn't work. In fact, the Law was written to /show/ it doesn't work - and it took only as long as it took Moses to come down from the mountain for that to be apparant. The Old Testament talks about rules, the New Testament talks about relationships. As long as your relationships are loving, not abusive, and you both enter into a sexual relationship in full awareness of your mutual obligations, surely that satisfies the principles of the Pauline teachings. We are negligent if we rely solely on scripture for guidance in our modern lives.
I would say, in caution, that if a couple become pregnant outside marriage, they do have a loving responsibility to that child, to nurture it. To my mind, abortion is not an option. God alone knows what I would do if my wife became pregnant after being raped.
Remember also the principle "No-one who loves me carries on sinning". If we are genuine in our love of God, how can we offend him by hurting our fellow man? I don't believe that once-for-all forgiveness is the whole picture. We need to be responsive to the will of the Holy Spirit in each of our individual lives; our own conscience, and God's will for each of us, may be different when it comes to sex and love, just as Paul says it is in the case of eating food sacrificed to idols.
Finally, I'd like to suggest that the modern position of freely negotiable sexuality is perhaps better than the mediaeval position, where a woman might be commanded to marry a man, and to love him by act of will alone.
Good question. A quick thought for you though. Have you ever wondered what the phrase, "and the two shall become one flesh?", means. A couple of things. It means the physical oneness a husband and wife share, but, it also refers to the spiritual aspect as well. When a person has a physical relationship outside the bonds of marriage it takes a bit of you away spiritually. You may find the love of your life later on but it won't have that unique special bond if you were to wait until marriage. And people being people it won't necessarily work out that way because of our selfish and sinful nature, but it does hold a lot of credibility. When you find the mate God has reserved for you and you alone, get married and share the wonderful physical side of the love relationship it means so much more and there is a spiritual bonding that occurs. To answer the chapter and verse part of the question. I'd look up fornication in the concordance of the bible. Many verses deal with sexual immorality. Remember, sin is sin, is sin, is sin. The sin seperates us from God. He loves you too much and has given you and your friend an alternative to hell. It's called life and it's only found through Jesus. Hope it helps.
If I said having pre-marital sex means I am going to hell,I might as well say if I lie I'll go to hell.COme to think of it,if I swear I am going to hell.Yes a sin is a sin.Why should it be any different.Why is pre-marital sex more important than the other sins? I never could understand why people pay attentions to only issues like premarital sex,murder,and adultery,when I think issues like lying,disrespecting one another,corruption is just as bad.But we never seem to worry if we will end up in hell for that. Well a sin is a sin.ANd if you sin you go to hell.Unless you ask for forgiveness and repent.and repent means seriously changing your mind and attitude towards something so there is no way in hell you can fake repenting.Unless you do that then the bible says that you will go to hell and, so will I if I don't stop swearing.
YOU WILL ABSOLUTELY GO TO HELL if you have premartial sex because God (Krsna) has said so. There are two conditions you must follow in order to have sex without going to Hell. First you can only have sex with a person you are married to. And Second you can only have sex for procreation of God Conscious children and nothing else. If you break any of these two simple rules you will suffer miserably in Hell because, it is Krsna's Law! PS: I am tired of hearing all this bullshit of Christians who think that they can sin all they want and Jesus will forgive them. Christianity is just a sinful religion where people commit all kinds of sins because they believe that sinners don't go to Hell!
Wake UP to reality!
obviously it is a sin to have sex before marriage, so why do it if you know it is wrong? God will forgive you however remember God knows everything even before we do it. however if you do slip up and do it no you will not go to hell, you need to repent of your sins and try extramly hard not do do it again. Besides God knew what he was doing when he made that "rule" he did it to protect us. imagin being a mother and not having a husban to help take care of the child...it would be hard...or getting a std you now have to explain to your husban down the road how you got it and he is most-likly not want to share that with you...just pray about it the lord will answer your prayer and he will grant you strength.
God is a forgiving and merciful God, but, even if and when you ask for forgiveness... that does not cancel out the consequences... all though I believe in a literal hell, I like Sues answer... please think very long and hard before you consider this, because once its done it can never be undone... and put some thought into every consequence you can think of, then make a post stating those reasons... for the benefit of others... however, be prepared for the cheerleaders that will cheer you on... Consider your future, and how that decision will affect it, and read the posts of the girls that already did... the ones that are Christian, since you are... May God be with you, as you try to make wise choices...
God can and does forgive ANY sin, if we want him to. That's the gift Jesus died to give us. But we have to want him to forgive us, so that means being sorry. However, better not to have to say sorry in the first place! I first had sex when I was 15 and now, looking back, it wasn't grown-up and it wasn't clever and it wasn't even very good! So I've become a Christian and God has forgiven me but it's a bit of baggage I have to carry with me, and it wasn't a good thing to have to tell the man I married, so.. yes, God can forgive, but better not to do it in the first place. You have probably have years and years of a good married sex life ahead of you, so don't panic that you're missing out!
I used to consider myself a Christian and now I consider myself a wiccan, simply because I understand more now, however you need to step out of these guilt shame traps that the organized church lays upon your mind, you are too young to have sex that is a fact. Premarital sex is not a sin, which means missing the mark or the purpose of the moment. Sex should take place between two consenting adults who are conscious and aware of eachothers spirits, who are becoming one with the other person, not just to get their jollies off but to connect. If you don't understand then don't do it untill you do.
there is forgiveness in all things. you will not go to hell if you repent of the sin. but if you do not and continue to do it, then it's just as much of a sin as any other. there are no different levels, no in betweens. you're either obeying God or you're not. dont get me wrong, God's grace is sufficient. He understands that we're going to make mistakes, but that's the thing, you have to recognize that what you did was wrong, that it is a sin. but God is a forgiving and gracious God. But if you're just doing it and not attempting to obey God, then yea pretty much, you probably can.
Fearing God is having reverence to Him. The only way we can be holy, even in our sin is to let God see us as holy. The only way that is possible is by the blood of Jesus. When we accept Jesus as our Savior, and repent from our sins and ask for forgiveness, God looks upon us and sees Christ covering our sin. It has nothing to do with us, only His Glory. Stay pure until marriage, you will be blessed beyond your dreams. Praying that you will seek His face and that your reach for Him will always exceed your grasp!
In response to funadvice on Jan. 12, 2008---suicide is not forgivable even though it is a sin because you never had time to repent for it. God forgives when you repent, when you commit suicide you can't repent afterwards because you're dead! No sin is bigger than any other sin! sin is sin but suicide can't be repented for...but only God judeges whether you go to hell or heaven. Jesus please have mercy on those who are talking in ignorance and lead them to the right path of your salvation. Amen.
You don't go to hell because of a certain thing you've done wrong. You go to hell because you've never have asked Jesus Christ to live in you. In His lfe you have God's forgiveness. If He chooses to live in you, you will always be forgiven. God doen't look at what you do or don't do but only looks at what His Son did for you. As you come to appreciate this fact, you come to love Him more and want to do His will out of love instead of fear.
if you have pre-marital sex and don't repent for it you will. but Jesus died for our since so if you have sinned at all just ask for forgiveness the bible says that we have an advocate with the father who is Jesus. but don't do it if you haven't. continue to be pure and holy. it's really a good thing to abstain from sex till marriage for physical spiritual and emotional reasons especially since you are so young.
no such thing as hell so its kind of a mute point. if you believe in hell youre so deluded you may aswell have loads of sex to forget your twisted view of reality. apart from the fact that youre simple in the head, youre also young so I have to level with you- everyone has sex everywhere and soon enough you will too. religion is a lie and life is complicated enough without talk of BS "sins"
Dear sk8rangel4life, Some of us believe you create your own hell on earth and this is how we interpret going to hell... you have sex at a young age unmarried and get pregnant, unable to attend college or finish school, never achieve the life you desired, feel cheated from your future you thought you were going to have because you had sex and had a baby, well then perhaps. Sue...good luck
Everyone believes something different. Personally, I believe that you should know it is wrong. I have been taught that a sin is a sin. Which means a person who lied is just as much of a sinner as a person who murdered someone. I believe if you believe in God, and are baptized he will forgive you. "Repent and be baptized" Like I said everyone is different and has their own beliefs
there is no hell, people just made that up to have something to fear.. my theory.. in the wild most animals(including our ancestors) have to fear being attacked.. we don't nearly have to worry as much if we were still in the "wild" but our brain still release that chemical, so we can be on gard. sort of vestigialy. and they called this feeling the "devil" or "evil"
You only go to Hell for one sin- and that is the sin of rejecting Jesus Christ ,as many on this website have done. If you've accepted Jesus into your life he has already forgiven your past, present, and future sins. That doesn't give you a free pass to sin all you want- but if your saved you won't go to hell for premartial sex or anything else you do.
I was raised in a Christian family. The Bible does say the sex before marriage is a sin, but what does God do? He FORGIVES. As long as you believe in him, things will work out fine after you die.
I am not a virgin. I don't connect virginity and believing in God whatsoever. That is my opinion on the matter.
Gods real and yes premartial sex is a sin unless you repent you wont be forgiven but God wants to forgive you and wants you to go to heaven, He believes in us that we can somehow be holy through his grace, He just wants us to believe in him and accept him with our whole heart.
I agree with healingfullcircle. Sex isn't something wrong. It's something you do to become one with someone you love, but not just for pleasure. Sex should be saved for someone truly special to you, but not necessarily after marriage. If you ever want to talk about it, message me.
yes you WILL go to hell unless you repent. and turn from your sin. one of the ten commandments is, do not commit adultery. basically, dont run off with someone who aint your spouse, dont lust, dont have sex before marraige. the bible says to STAY PURE until your marraige.
I give in to sin sometimes. I talk about sex and I pretend to have it with celebritie in mind when I'm having real sex with my life partner. it's all very healthy sexual behavior and exploration. it only gives you a one way ticket to hell when animals are involved.
Sorry, forgot to put in the references, there are many: Romans 14:13-14, Galatians 5:16-23, 1 Corinthians 7:36-38 and then the whole book of Ephesians is a love letter from God through His servant Paul to us on the way we ought to live.
silver wings! if you repent. God not only forgives. but also forgets.
so you're wrong...
and if you've asked Jesus Christ to be your lord and savior... then that's your free ticket to heaven.
you won't go to hell for having pre-marital sex.
If you're a Christian then you really shouldn't be having premarital sex. But you won't go to hell for it. Yes, it's a sin, but if your saved God forgives you for those sins. That doesn't mean keep doing it. It's just better if you wait, in so many ways.
captainassassin you said suicide isnt forgivable. but it is a sin isnt it? and jesus can forgive all sins but not if you reject him. so if your a born again christian and you commit suicide maybe you wont go to hell.. or are you calling jesus a liar
if sex before marriage is an automatic admission to Hell... we're all going to Hell then... =DDD think about it?
That is just Christian fanatic b.s.
Don't take life so serious, or you won't survive - Simple. As. That.
only GOD knows where we're all going so dont be so quick to say "im not going to Hell". ok ima Christian..& I honestly believe you wont (im a virgin :D) GOD forgives sins you go to hell if you dont believe in him...
no you wont as long as you give your life to GOD wich that would b gettin saved and that is great!:) but you r suppose to wait until you r married to have sex bcause thats wrong if you have sex bfor you r married.
no you wont as long as you give your life to GOD wich that would b gettin saved and that is great!:) but you r suppose to wait until you r married to have sex bcause thats wrong if you have sex bfor you r married.
You wont nesscessarily go to hell, see if you repent and accept Jesus as your personal savior, then you will be saved. Jesus always will forgive your sins if you just ask him to for give you through prayer.
no, sin itslef isn what sends man to hell, man sends man to hell, its man's choice to choose who he wants to follow and where he wants to spend eternity at. sin is just the outcome of bein lost.
Committing a sin doesn't mean an automatic admission to hell.
A Christian who thinks premarital/non-marital sex INBD, though, may want to find a different religion. That's all.
I personally don't believe premarital sex is a sin (except of course for promiscuity), but if it is then about 99% of the world's population will be going to hell.
there is noone to say who gets sent where as long as you accept jesus as your personal savior then you are garenteed a spot in heaven :)
well, if you are Christian, no.
God forgives all sins, if one accepts God into his life.
that's according to the Bible
Grow up shtel... no you will not go to hell for having pre-marital sex. I had sex when I was 16 and I'm not going anywhere.
If you can go to Hell for having pre-marital sex, then there will be a lot people of people in Hell just for this one sin.
no..even if u go you will get half the earth population with you and most of them pretty good people...so dont worry
God doesn't exsist, so don't worry there is no heaven or hell. Not even an in-between on earth as they call it!!
The only 'sin' that will automatically send you to Hell... is suicide... I think... all others are forgivable...
well if you ask God to forgive you then ask Him to come into your life then no you wont go to hell
its actually prohibited but as long as you repent your sins sincerely, the god will forgive u..
A sin is a sin.. man can't judge mn bu without repentance I think ypou are going to helll
There is no HELL...or SANTA...sorry if I spoiled anything for you there.
right on!!! HEAR HEAR TO THAT!!! head bangs randomly to some Metal
lol, if its true...then I cant wait for that fine heat!
Yes you can unless you go to confession.
only god can determin that
