[Must read] Is having sex with my girlfriend a sin? | See

Run from sin
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these,  Adultery, Fornication, uncleanliness, Lasciviousness, Galatians 5:19.

It is very significant that all the first four works of flesh mentioned in the Bible (Galatians 5:19) are done of sexual immorality. Sexual immorality is so gracious to God that Paul warned, "But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality....." (Ephesians 5:3). We shall discuss on fornication.

Fornication refers to sexual immorality between two persons neither of whom is married, in a more simple way, fornication means having sex before marriage. In the word today Fornication is common to many youths, you will find out that youths who are in a relationship can't do without this immoral act forbidden by God. You May ask, how is it bad having fun with my girl friend? Let's look at 1Corintians 6:15-20, the Bible made it clear that Fornication is a sin,  and also warned us to flee from it.

God really hates Fornication, it was mentioned in the Bible many times almost than any other sin.
 1Corinthians 10:8-9, Neither let's commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand, verse 9: Neither let us tempt Christ,  as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.

Example of Fornication in the Bible was the event between Shechem and Dinah (Genesis 34:1-31), One-day, Dinah went out to interact with other girls in the city of Canaan. Shechem saw her, and committed fornication with her, after which he proposed to marry her. Young people toady do indulge in this act, in the name of courtship, you will see a Male and a female living together, yet they are not married, instead they are committing all sort of immoral acts. God is bringing to our notice that he hates it.

Consequences of Fornication

  1. They bring God's name into disrepute (2Sam. 12:13-14)
  2. They hinder the presence and move of God in one's life and in the church.  (1 Correct.  5:1-5)
  3. Sexually transmitted diseases.
  4. Death
  5. Calamity on oneself,  family, society (Gen. 34:1-31)
  6. Shame and disgrace,  loss of status or position through the scandal (pro. 6:26).
  7. Enternal destruction (Hell fire). 
How to avoid Fornication 
  • Avoid every thought, conversation, Music, books, picture, movie, etc, that can pollute your heart with sexual feelings or emotion.  (Pro. 4:23, Matt. 15:18-20, James 1:13-15)
  • Do not compromise any seductive situation or relationship (1Cor. 15:33, Pro. 5:1-13)
  • Marry a fellow Christian under God's guidance with whom you can share sexual intimacy (1 Cor. 7:1-2) , Heb. 13:4).
So in 1gospel let's amend our ways as we have seen that having sex in a relationship not ordained is a sin, let's flee from it and out life with be straight both physically, spiritually, academically, and otherwise.
