So what is the real deal with this phrase "Living In Sin"? People who are or who proclaim to be bound in the word and worship faithfully, "Shack Up" every day! Can I get an "Amen"?
First coming from the biblical perspective (King James Version), here are just a couple scriptures people of faith have quoted regarding this subject matter:
For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornication's, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
Now making it plain:
Fornication is defined as: Consensual sexual intercourse between 2 person not married to each other.
As faith abiding individuals it is expected for there to be no fornication, intimate relations, snuggling up or getting buck wild with anyone that is not your husband or wife.
If you're shacking, surly you're doing the above; are you still heaven bound? I mean you are "living in sin" and all.
Isn't it the goal for faith abiding individuals to get married; before living together?
A study suggests couples who live together before marriage are more likely to get divorced. It is believed that some couples who move in together without a clear commitment to marraige may wind up sliding into marraige partly because they are already cohabitating.
Living together is considered to be more stressful than being married and just over 50% of first cohabitating couples ever get married.
With faith being a primary factor of not shacking for christians and muslims and the statistics of how many people who choose the route of living together don't make it to the alter, why still do it?
