I am wondering if you could share your list of biblical proofs for marital sexual chastity. Thank you. (email, Feb. 8, 2011)
John: Regarding chastity and sexual sins, I have a whole chapter (#17) on this in my book, Sex and the Marriage Covenant: A Basis for Morality. Mark 7:21 mentions a list of sins that come from the heart. In some translations, the word “unchastity” is the second in the list; adultery and licentiousness are also mentioned.
The last part of 1 Cor 6 also speaks strongly about chastity. The Council of Jerusalem in Acts spoke against unchastity. I have never gone through the whole New Testament making a list of chastity related passages. Chastity is simply part of Christian discipleship.
In his service,
Sex and the Marriage Covenant
