[Romans 12:1]

“and so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God, because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice – the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.


[1 Corinthians 6:18]

“Run from sexual sin!…”


[Ephesians 5:15-17]

So be careful how you live. Don’t live like fools, but like those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days. Don’t act thoughtlessly, but understand what the Lord wants you to do.”


[Ephesians 5:22-25, 31-33]

And further, submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For a husband is the head of his wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of his body, the church. As the church submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your husbands in everything. For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her… As the Scriptures say, “A man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.”  This is a great mystery, but it is an illustration of the way Christ and the church are one. So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.”


[2 Corinthians 6:14]

“Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness?”


[1 Timothy 5:1-2]

“Never speak harshly to an older man, but appeal to him respectfully as you would y to your own father. Talk to younger men as you would to your own brothers. Treat older women as you would your mother, and treat younger women, with all purity, as you would your own sisters.”


[Malachi 2:6]

“For I hate divorce! Says the Lord, the God of Israel. To divorce your wife is to overwhelm her with cruelty, says the Lord of heavens armies. So guard your heart; do not be unfaithful to your wife.”


[Deuteronomy 24:1]

“ suppose a man marries a woman, but she does not please him. Having discovered something wrong with her, he writes a document of divorce, hand it to her, and since you’re away from his house.“



[Matthew 5:31-32]

“You’ve heard the law that says, a man can divorce his wife, by merely giving her a written notice of divorce. But I say that a man who divorces his wife, unless she has been unfaithful, causes her to commit adultery. And anyone who marries a divorce woman also commits adultery.”



[1 Corinthians 7:15]

“ what is the husband or wife, who isn’t a believer insists on leaving, let them go. In such cases, the believing husband or wife is no longer bound to the other, for God has called you to live in peace.”



[1 Corinthians 7:3-7]

“The husband should fulfill his wife’s sexual needs, and the wife should fulfill her husband’s needs. The wife gives authority over her body to her husband, and the husband gives authority over his body to his wife. Do not deprive each other of sexual relations, unless you both agree to refrain from intimacy for a limited time, so you can give yourselves more completely to prayer. Afterward, you should come together again, so that Satan won’t be able to tempt you because of your lack of self-control. I say this, as a concession, not as a command. But I wish everyone were single, just as I am. Yet each person has a special gift from God, and one kind or another.”



[1 Corinthians 7:10-11]

“But for those who are married, I have a command that comes not from me, but from the Lord. A wife must not leave her husband. But if she does leave him, let her remain single or else be reconciled to him. And the husband must not leave his wife.”


[Romans 12:1]

“ and so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God, because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice – the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.
