GOD CONDEMNS ALL FORMS OF NON-MARITAL SEX
I. Premarital and extra-marital sex (including rape and incest)

Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour's wife, to defile thyself with her.

- Leviticus 18:20

And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.

And the man that lieth with his father's wife hath uncovered his father's nakedness: both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

And if a man lie with his daughter-in-law, both of them shall surely be put to death: they have wrought confusion; their blood shall be upon them.

And if a man shall take his sister, his father's daughter, or his mother's daughter, and see her nakedness, and she see his nakedness; it is a wicked thing; and they shall be cut off in the sight of their people: he hath uncovered his sister's nakedness; he shall bear his iniquity.

- Leviticus 20:10-12, 17

If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel.

If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;

Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour's wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you.

But if a man find a betrothed damsel in the field, and the man force her, and lie with her: then the man only that lay with her shall die:

But unto the damsel thou shalt do nothing; there is in the damsel no sin worthy of death: for as when a man riseth against his neighbour, and slayeth him, even so is this matter:

For he found her in the field, and the betrothed damsel cried, and there was none to save her.

- Deuteronomy 22:22-27

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness.

- Galatians 5:19

Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.

Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.

Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

- I Corinthians 6:13, 15, 18

But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.

- Acts 15:20

But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints.

- Ephesians 5:3

II. Homosexuality (both male and female)

Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

- Leviticus 18:22

If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

- Leviticus 20:13



Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

For this cause God gave them up unto affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature,

And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their toward another; men with men that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

- Romans 1:24, 26-27, 32

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor nature:adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of mankind...shall inherit the kingdom of God.

- I Corinthians 6:9; 10b


Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

- Jude: 7

III. Bestiality

Whosoever lieth with a beast shall surely put to death.

- Exodus 22:19

Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.

- Leviticus 18:23

And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast.
And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

- Leviticus 20:15-16
