Fornication and Adultery

Sex is for marriage and marriage alone. It is a marital right. God in His intruction manual made it clear that it is to be implemented and enjoyed in marriage and not outside marriage. Why? Because He created you, and He knows how you can effectively, efficiently and gracefully function without regrets, heartache, dejection, rejection, and tears. In essence, the manufacturer knows His product.

1 Corinthians 7:5
Do not refuse and deprive and defraud each other [of your due marital rights], except perhaps by mutual consent for a time, so that you may devoteyourselves unhindered to prayer. But afterwards resume marital relations, lest Satan tempt you [to sin] through your lack of restraint of sexual desire.
Read: 1 Corinthians 7:4-6 , 1 Corinthians 7 (Whole Chapter)

Yes, there will be few who will read this and push out some profane words from their lips, but I am also fully aware that such outbursts are drawn from either a feeling of ‘Guilt’ , ‘Self-love’, or ignorance about what the Bible (life’s manual) says.

Why would you buy a new device or gadget and read its manual to get the information on how to operate it! So the question is…. what manual are you reading for your life’s journey?

Sex in itself is a very powerful instrument that’ll either bring pain, regrets, happiness or fulfilment to your life. It is an instrument! And it has its purpose. Outside wedlock, it is an instrument outside of God’s will; in wedlock, but outside the marital union, it is also an instrument outside God’s will. Deal with this wisely, because just as you never created yourself, you do not know your tomorrow!
