We have been designed by God for intimacy. Intimacy of all times and differing levels. However, we must be mindful of God’s design for the expression of the deepest intimacy at the human level. The sexual expression of love and devotion is to be lived out fully within the bounds of marriage. The marriage bed is to be pure and holy.
Sexual immorality is specifically condemned throughout the Bible. The New Testament is very pointed in its teaching. Sexual intimacy is lived out in its healthiest form in a marriage between a man and a woman. The choice to participate in immoral behavior comes with great risk.
