God’s Rules about Sexual Relations

Many people don’t know right from wrong. Here are God’s rules.

God’s Rules about Sexual Relations

Never have sexual intercourse with anyone related to you by blood. I am the Lord. Never have sexual intercourse with your mother. She is your own mother. Never have sexual intercourse with her. Never have sexual intercourse with your stepmother. She is related to you through your father.

Never have sexual intercourse with your stepsister, whether she is your father’s daughter or your mother’s daughter. It makes no difference whether or not she was born in your house. Never have sexual intercourse with your granddaughter, whether she is your son’s daughter or your daughter’s daughter, because she is related to you.

Never have sexual intercourse with a daughter of your father and his wife. She is your own sister. Never have sexual intercourse with your father’s sister. She is your paternal aunt. Never have sexual intercourse with your mother’s sister. She is your maternal aunt. Never have sexual intercourse with the wife of your father’s brother. She, too, is your aunt.

Never have sexual intercourse with your daughter-in-law. She is your son’s wife. Never have sexual intercourse with her. Never have sexual intercourse with your sister-in-law. She is your brother’s wife. Never have sexual intercourse with a woman and her daughter or a woman and her granddaughter. They are related. Doing this is perverted. While your wife is living, never marry her sister as a rival wife and have sexual intercourse with her.

Never have sexual intercourse with a woman while she is unclean during her monthly period. Never have sexual intercourse with your neighbor’s wife and become unclean with her. Never give your children as sacrifices to the god Molech by burning them alive. If you do, you are dishonoring the name of your God. I am the Lord.

Never have sexual intercourse with a man as with a woman. It is disgusting. Never have sexual intercourse with any animal and become unclean with it. A woman must never offer herself to an animal for sexual intercourse. It is unnatural.

–Leviticus 18:6-23
Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body.

~1 Corinthians 6:18 (NLT)
