I know when I was catholic this topic was never brought up. I had to search for the meaning. My new Church the pastors brings it up all the time and spells it out for us. Sex outside of marriage is a sin period. This is one of the biggest sins I see being practiced and accepted in society today. And it scares me for all who practice it because the bible says

Galatians 5:19-21
Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

I am looking for more scripture that spells out sexual immorality in a way that plainly says sex outside of marriage is a sin.

Any help on the subject would be appreciated.

Thanks

Try using the KJV for that reference above.

Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

It separates sexual immorality with adultery and fornication which is ex before marriage if you read further to the other references below.

1 Corinthians 6:15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. 16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. 17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. 18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. 19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

Continuing....

1 Corinthians 7:1Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. 2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. 3 Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. 4 The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. 5 Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.

Only in marriage is how one has rights to a spouse's body as they are one flesh, which is to be done in Christ's love.

Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. 28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. 29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: 30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. 31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. 32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. 33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

You might make me a fan of the KJV after all. Nicely done thank you kind sir.

that version drives home the point much clearer then the esv I used.

The word fornicators below is "pornos" in the Greek. The word pornograpy comes from this word.

1 Cor 6:9; Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals,
Heb 13:4; Marriage is to be held in honor among all, and the marriage bed is to be undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge.

A few more.

Acts 15:20; but that we write to them that they abstain from things contaminated by idols and from fornication and from what is strangled and from blood.
Acts 15:29; that you abstain from things sacrificed to idols and from blood and from things strangled and from fornication; if you keep yourselves free from such things, you will do well. Farewell."
Acts 21:25; "But concerning the Gentiles who have believed, we wrote, having decided that they should abstain from meat sacrificed to idols and from blood and from what is strangled and from fornication."

1 Cor 6:18; Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body.
Eph 5:5; For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

Rev 21:8; "But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."

Why would God care about people doing what comes natural? Why are Christians today so concerned about sex.

Let me ask you a question

Was Jesus married?
Did Jesus ever have sex?

As we discussed in another thread. Lying, cheating, hitting and being selfish comes natural. Toddlers know how to do these things naturally.
Just because something "comes natural", does that make it right?

Lying, stealing, and bullying comes "natural" to many people.
Believing in Jesus comes natural to some people. Why do you find this offensive?

Why are Christian so concerned about sex? I would ask why non-Christians are so concerned about sex?
How many non Christian websites, television shows, radio shows, magazines, and bars do you think talk about sex?

Yes, and they should not sensationalize sex, and Christians should not suppress it.
