Singleness, Marriage and Sex (1 Corinthians 7:1-9, 1 Corinthians 7:32-33)

Ciaran Loughran, May 31, 2015
Part of the 1 Corinthians series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Which is better, to be married or single? What does Scripture tell us about sex in marriage? Is sex something that we really should not discuss as church because its considered "dirty"? Ciaran teaches on what Paul, in his letter to the church in Corinth, instructs us in these matters.

1 Corinthians 7:1-9

1Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. 2Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. 3Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. 4The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. 5Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency. 6But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment. 7For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that. 8I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I. 9But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn. (KJV)

1 Corinthians 7:32-33

32But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord: 33But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife. (KJV)
