Not only discouraged, but fobidden. Why? God calls it sin. The are numerous reference to sexual immorality, or in some versions "fornication." In most instances this relates to sexual activity outside of marriage. The Bible uses other terms for other sexual sins.

for·ni·ca·tion ( fôr”n¹-k³“sh…n) n. 1. Sexual intercourse between partners who are not married to each other. (The american Heritage Dictionary)

1CO 6:18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. 19 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; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.

1CO 7:1 Now for the matters you wrote about: It is good for a man not to marry. 2 But since there is so much immorality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman her own husband. 3 The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. 4 The wife's body does not belong to her alone but also to her husband. In the same way, the husband's body does not belong to him alone but also to his wife. 5 Do not deprive each other except by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

I hope this helps.
It should be discouraged. I wasn't Christian before I got married to my high school sweetheart. We didn't wait for marriage, but now that we are both Christians it is something we both regret. A relationship should be developed and be commited to one another by marriage before sex.

I have a mother-in-law who it dating, if she marries it will be her third marriage. She hasn't waited, and can't stand up for what she believes. She is afraid that if she doesn't give in to sex, that he will leave her. She is suffering internally because of it. That is a very unstable relationship, because it is not founded on God's plan.

I just see to much damage that comes along with sex before marriage. My marriage almost ended, because it was a contributing factor, to an unstable marriage. Besides being a sin. God lays out his plan for marriage in 1 Cor. 7, he wants us to be guided by him, so that we may live happy lives. Thank God for the blessing of marriage!
Hi Ruth,
I agree with all them! Sex outside of marriage should be discouraged and it IS a sin! God designed sex for 2 people who committed themselves for a lifetime commitment before Him. It's His beautiful gift for them and only husband and wife can experience the true purpose of it, as it said in Genesis 2:24 "...and they will become one flesh". But sadly, many people/teenagers see sex only for pleasure, they define love is equal to sex, which we know is wrong...cos Satan deceived the world that sex is good for all. Its all in the billboards, movies, tv programs, and even in music.. they are all inviting and encouraging that anybody can do it and its no big deal, that's why people are all into it cos they believe that it's ok..but later on in their lives they will have the consequences of their actions.

But what God wants us to do is this:
1 Thessalonians 4:3-5
It is God's will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control his own body in a way that is HOLY and HONORABLE, not in passionate lust like the heathen, who do not know God"


and in verse 7 "For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life"

God bless you!!!
Dear Ruth
We are all humans and when we love, we love with all our hearts! But when we read in the Old Testament the word says it so beautiful:Song of Solomon 8:4 - I adjure you O daugthers of Jerusalem that you never stir up or awaken love until it pleases.
Everything under the sun has its time and it is so much better to, no rather, wait for marriage. You will experience so much more blessings in your marriage if you do!
Given into such a experience will only make you feel guilty for we all know that it is a sin, and then you had to deal with all the issues coming along with such an experience.
Keep yourself pure for that special life with your spouse and you will never regret it.
Blessings friend

i total disagree, by right we as christians should wait before our time, theres a video that i watched now recently called Keep ur underwear on by Pastor Frezen Fraklin, and he said that when we come into the lords presence we need to come holy and acceptable to him, thats why our bodies are respectable and we need to be holy before the lord thats why God created sex, to be beautiful between 2 married people, Rember when we were in high school there was these people called True love waits. of course not, The bible says that Never fall into sexual sin, cause the devil will use that against u. Always flee from sexual sin, Read the book of Samuel whereby David fled from portiphars wife, i hope u will take this very serious Ruth, i believe in my spirit that God will give u a perfect husband, always get involved in Gods work, Sex before marriage is a sin, the bible makes it clear. I hope u will absorb all this information and let the holy spirit reveal things like this topic to u. God bless
But fornication, and all uncleannes,or covetousness,let it not be once named among you,as becometh saints(Eph 5.3). This is a command and must be strictly adhered to.We are living in an adulterous generation where many do not see sex before marriage as sin. Rom 12.2-And be not conform to this world... Please, no matter the pressure do not do it. It will be your testimony.
inibehe.
God isn't being mean by making us wait until marraige. When a couple before marraige starts having sex, the building of the relationship, will stop because it just becomes a physical relationship.

The Bible says something happens in your heart that makes you one with that person.

Also there is no commitment and what if your guy friend just gets up and leaves you?

God created sex and it can be a wonderful expearence in marraige.

But build your relationship first spiritually, make sure you both know the Lord and have been born again, then spend a lot of time getting to know one another through social activities.

You see it is like opening your presents before Christmas day if you do not wait.

No my sister it should not be encourged.The Bible says to present yourselves Holy unto God,(Romans 12:1).1Cor.7:7-9gives you advice about the unmarried.Lok at it this way Adam &Eve were full grown adults. not teenagers,preteens.they were married by God and they hadlawful sex.Not fornication.that is what you are doing or telling someone to do before marriage...
The world, (society), the flesh, (your own desires & hormonal erges) & the devil, (Satan), would tell you that it should be encouraged. People were telling me this over 30 years ago, before my wedding! I was angry about the comments, because we both wanted to please the Lord and do things His way!
I'm so glad that I, (we) waited. Life is full of ups & downs, misunderstandings & disagreements. Married life is not always a bed of roses. When the tests come, it's good to have established TRUST in one another! If a young man can treat his Beloved with respect & show self-control before marriage, it is a good foundation for the times when that trust will be needed later on in a marriage. This is what the Lord showed us & we have been happily married for 34 years. I'm not giving you a lot of scriptures, because i see a lot of people already have. Obeying God's Word always brings blessings & peace! In Christ, Deborah
