Part 32 A few weeks ago, I was asked about the appearances evil. It was asked, “Is it wrong for one to live with a member of the opposite sex even if you are not committing fornication?” The Bible warns of fornication and the fact that it is a sin (Heb. 13:4, Matt. 19:9, Gal. 5:19). Unfortunately in our American culture, cohabitation with the opposite sex often manifests in sexual immorality and fornication. According to the survey released in April 2013 by the National Center for Health Statistics, which is part of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly half of American couples between the ages of 15-44 years of age live together before marriage.
