14. If two engaged persons have sex before marriage, are they married in the sight of God or the true marriage is the one contracted in the church?
engaged persons have sex before marriage, they are not yet married in the
sight of God, and their conscience bears them witness in the Holy Spirit that
they are not yet married (and obviously the same conscience will bear them
witness that they have sinned). Why? Because man and woman are not joined
together in marriage by sexual intercourse, but by God as it is written:
“What God has joined together, let not man separate” (Matthew 19:6 – NKJV),
and this is what God does through the authority appointed by Him. In
To conclude, I would like to say that in order to get married believers don’t need to be married by a pastor who is licensed to marry, because the marriage contracted before the major or another civil authority licensed to marry is a marriage which has the full approval of God, it lacks nothing, I say it again, it lacks nothing.
