Someone asked, “Are only virgin marriages legitimate? I was told by a group that I am in adultery because I was not a virgin when I got married… according to this group sex is marriage.” In this study, Tim goes to the Scriptures to show that this lady is being wrongly condemned by this false teaching.
I have a question for Pastor Tim Conway. My question is, are only virgin marriages legitimate? I was told by a group that I am in adultery because I was not a virgin when I got married. I backslid, had a promiscuous past and had a sex with more than one boyfriend. They also state that Gomer was a virgin when God told Hosea to marry her and back up their claims. They seem believable and now I’m worried I’m sinning all the time. They imply that Matthew 19:9 means you MUST put away a wife for a fornication. They also state that my marriage is actually fornication because it is unlawful. So according to this group sex is marriage. I’m extremely, to say the least, worried. I don’t want to lose my soul over this. This could be a good sermon topic. How do I know which view is right?
