Even before I got married, I've always wondered at this. If a person lacks self-control while single, will marriage automatically cure them of it?
Will temptation respect your ring and disappear forever?
Yes, fornication is a sin. But so is adultery. If you have a wrong view of who owns your body, you'll fall into sexual sin, married or not. God owns it - 1Cor 6:19-20.
If you can't handle waiting till marriage, can you handle sticking with one sexual partner (your spouse) for the rest of your life?
What happens when you can't have sex in marriage for many reasons including travel, sickness, postpartum recovery, life hardships, etc?
It is natural for an adult to want to have sex, married or not. Purity is not just about a purity ring, or a marriage vow. Some people have these things and are hard core pornographers.
While early marriage has its advantages and disadvantages, it will not solve the problem of sexual sin. Satan is totally committed to abusing sexual desire and will fuel anything that leads to sin. If you're struggling with this, please know that your battle is against the devil but the Good news 🎊 is that Jesus came to destroy all the works of the devil. In Him, you have victory, forgiveness and peace
May the Word of God uncover our hearts so we can deal with the real issues, instead of exchanging one sin for another..
May we be strengthened with might in our inner man to fight the good fight..
May God give us the strength of character to let down convenience and comfort so God can be glorified in our bodies..
May God help us depend on Him, not our limited willpower. Amen
