The blood

November 30, 2008

There has been a debate by many that God will allow pre-marital sex. I do not think that the Bible teaches that. In fact, Paul makes it quite clear.

(1Co 6:16 CEV)
Don't you know that a man who does that becomes part of her body? The Scriptures say, "The two of them will be like one person."

In the Old Testament we find examples of blood covenant all through the scriptures. The intermingling of blood was a sign of a lasting covenant that could not be broken. In the act of having sex, blood is also shed from both participants. In other words, there is a blood covenant between these two people. By moving from one partner to the next we mix up our minds to the true meaning of the covenant.

If you are thinking of sex outside of marriage, do not, plain and simple.
