Has God changed the standards for human sexual behavior?


Why now is no longer allowed to have sex before marriage and early the man could sleep when he wanted and with whom he wanted?

No, it was not so in the beginning. Chapter 2 of the Book of Genesis tells us about the creation of man and woman and there God established the framework for sexual relations. Here’s what the Scripture says:

So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place. The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. The man said, ”This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed. (Genesis 2:21-25)(NASB)

Please pay attention to the word wife, repeated twice, showing that sex “be joined” was left by God for a married man and woman. That was in the beginning and it remained so until today, because God is the same and the Bible says that with Him there is no variation or shifting shadow. Let us obey Him so that we may be happy on this earth and enjoy with Him in eternity.
