70AD or 2009 - Same Principle Applies
Heb 13:4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
Marriage, the union of one man and one woman for a lifetime, is God's plan for the propagation of the race, for sexual and relational fulfillment and to model the nuclear family.
The world's lie, however is that we are not to be bound by such antique notions of marital fidelity and sexual purity.
Let society argue what it may, the promise of the verse is that God will judge whoremongers, adulterers and those who defile the marriage bed.
Perversion, in its several forms, is so rampant that it has become the norm and chastity so rare that it is called freakish. The 2000 plus years that have transpired since this verse was penned changes nothing. Sin, in any context, is harmful to individuals, communities and societies.
God did not merely suggest, but commanded moral purity for our own good, not to withhold pleasure and suppress natural desires. Indeed, the greatest fulfillment comes only within God's plan of marriage, monogamy and fidelity. Anything else is harmful psychologically, emotionally, physically and societal. As always, God's way is the best way.
