1 Corinthians 7:2 is a verse that is commonly used to try and teach that God no longer allows polygamy in the New Testament and that husbands and wives mutually and exclusively own one another. So here is the passage at the heart of our discussion (from the KJV): “Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let everyContinue reading “Does 1 Corinthians 7:2 Make Husbands and Wives Sexual Equals?”
Many commentators over the centuries have tried to say Leviticus 15:16 is only describing a man having a nocturnal emission and not masturbation. But there is a glaring problem with this interpretation as Leviticus 15:16 makes no qualifications about this release of his seed happening at night as it does in Deuteronomy 23:10.

“Is it wrong for me to motivate my wife into having good sex with me using money? Am I treating my wife like a prostitute by doing this?” This was part of an email I received from a Christian husband going by the name of Luke.

I know you might be scratching your head right now asking “Isn’t premarital sex and pre-wedding sex the same thing?” But Biblically speaking the answer is no, they are not the same. These are two separate and distinct things. This topic is crucial for young Christian couples who are dating or engaged to consider inContinue reading “The Difference Between Premarital Sex and Pre-wedding Sex”
