sanctity of marriage
God blessed them, saying to them, “Be fertile and multiply; fill
the Earth and subdue it. Have dominion over the fish of the
sea, the birds of the air, and all the living things that move on
the Earth.” Genesis 1:28

[meaning that she should not deny him sexual
access when he desires it-Trans.]” (Ruthven

two persons not married to each other

marriage is prohibited
• Male homosexuality is a grave sin
-Female homosexuality also forbidden,
but less serious (because no penetration)
• Biblical and rabbinic law condemn
homosexual practices
• Unjust fornicators won’t inherit the
Kingdom of God
- First Corinthians 6:9-11
• If one can’t exercise self control then one
should marry
• Women betrothed to one husband are to
be presented to Christ as a chaste virgin
Surah 4:15-16
Women guilty of lewdness

Guilty men must be punished but if they repent they can be left alone
Punishment for men and women
- severely beaten with a whip or rod 100 times
- they should not be showed compassion
Those guilty of fornication can only marry one who’s also guilty of it or an
unbeliever; forbidden to believers
Those who wrongfully accuse and can’t produce 4 witnesses to support
allegations will be whipped 80 times
– if accuse spouse w/ only own evidence, must bear witness 4 times with an oath
by Allah that it’s truth, and if it’s a lie then they invoke the curse of Allah on
If a woman bears witness 4 times w/ oath by Allah that her husband is lying
then no punishment for her; but she invokes the wrath of Allah upon herself
if her accuser is telling the truth
Abstention from sexual intercourse

enter the world, get married, have children
and be spiritual
• Practice celibacy before marriage
• Celibacy can lead one closer to God if one
removes oneself from the physical aspects
of life
• Because sex is viewed only as a means of
reproduction, celibacy is required before

no reason to have sex

• Traditionally, according to the Torah a man may have
more than one wife, while a woman has one husband. (a
woman builds a home; a woman cannot build 2 homes)
- Double standard
• Jewish law does not forgive
• Children (innocent victims) pay for their parent’s
God will judge the immoral and the adulterous
No fornicator has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God

- Number 7 of the Ten Commandments
Adultery can be an act, a thought, or a divorce & remarriage
Three types:
-(the act) A married woman is bound by the law to her husband as

-(the thought) One is told not to commit adultery but anyone who looks
at a woman and wants to possess her is guilty of it within his own heart
-(divorce and remarriage) If a man divorces his wife, for any cause
