There’s No Such Thing as Premarital Sex by Daniel Harrell
as seen on djchuang's pensive journal

I'm sympathetic to the argument made in this article, that sex == marigage. Pastor Harrell makes some good arguments, and I'd agree with much of what is in the article. There's just one thing that bothers me, and it's what Jesus said to the woman at the well

The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband.
- John 4:18

Jesus seems to make a distinction between having sex with someone (the man you have now) and having a husband (the fist five guys). Doesn't seem to jive with the line taken by Pastor Harrell, tough I'm open to ideas.


PS there's a related thread over at
