Sex Outside Marriage

Comments on the results of the survey on sex outside marriage.

The 4th and 6th February, we invite our followers through the Social Networks, to participate in a survey about sex outside marriage. We got 197 participants in the survey in English and 94 participants in the survey in Spanish. The numerical results are in the image and you will find the comments below.

  1. The approach that generated more rejection was adultery. In other words, married people having sex outside marriage.

  2. In second place, the concept of teenagers having sex is rejected.

  3. Third place of rejection is for young people who have sex without being married.

  4. Finally the concept that generates less rejection, is adults who have sex without being married.

  5. These order of rejection is the same, among the Spanish respondents and the English respondents.

  6. However, rejection levels are higher in all cases, among the respondents in English than the Spanish respondents.

  7. A large proportion of survey participants are Christians (Catholic + Evangelical), 97% in Spanish and 94% English. This is natural, because since we publish Christian content, the vast majority of our followers are Christians.

  8. The question is: If the Bible condemns fornication and adultery as sin, and between 94% and 97% of survey participants identified themselves as Christians, why it wasn’t achieved over 90% rejection to sex outside marriage, in all questions?

  9. According to the 1-5 rating scale of the survey, 90% rejection would rank 4.6 in all questions (90% at 5 and 10% at 1). However, the only question that obtained this level of rejection was the last question about adultery. All others questions, including the general question about sex outside of marriage, were below that level.

  10. What is the conclusion? That even though the Bible condemns fornication and adultery as sin, Christians do not obey this completely.

  11. The Facts support our survey’s conclusion. According to the American Religious Identification Survey (ARIS) (2008) 76% of the American adult population identified themselves as Christians. However, the National Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) 2007 shows that 47.8% of US high school students reported having had sexual intercourse. The Federal National Survey of Family Growth 2010 reports that 95% of adults by age 44 have had sex before marriage. Sex therapist Peggy Vaughan, author of “The Monogamy Myth” conservatively estimates that about 60 percent of married men and 40 percent of married women will have an affair at some time during their marriage. Since 1971 Bill Mitchell. has documented the activities of those who commit adultery. As an investigator proving thousands of adultery, Mr. Mitchell has compiled these statistics: Within the last decade, incidents of adultery have risen to this alarming rate of 50-70 percent in America.

  12. So, in a country where 76% of the people report to be Christian, half the high school kids have sex, 95% of adults have sex before marriage and more than half of the population commits adultery. I guess it is very similar in other countries. So, there are many Christians that do not follow Christian Principles and Values, regarding sex and marriage. However, they point their Christian fingers very proudly to people committing other sins. Is this honest? Is this Christian?

Please comment. We really need to start talking about this. We should try to bring all Christians closer to Jesus. What made them wander away? What have we done wrong? Why is the world attracting Christians so much, they do not see they are hurting themselves? Why the world has convinced us that sex outside marriage is fun, there is nothing wrong with it and the Bible forbids it only to make our life boring? Why Christians do not understand that God tells us not to do it for our own good, to prevent to hurt ourselves? Why our Christian leaders do not have a strong position on this, and preach, teach and promote, a life following Jesus and following His Principles and Values?
