Question by James F: According to the Bible, is it okay to sleep with virgins before marriage, so long as you pay her father for “b
Exodus 22:16 — 22:18
When a man seduces a virgin who is not engaged to be married, and lies with her, he shall give the bride-price for her and make her his wife. But if her father refuses to give her to him, he shall pay an amount equal to the bride-price for virgins.

Ya’all must be so proud of your book of morals.

You do what people have done for centuries: Twist the scriptures to suit your needs. Do you think you can attack God with His own word? You will reap what you sow.

Exodus is old testament

I wonder what the going rate of a virgin is these days…

My dad has a whole herd of goats

Grrr…. I hate that quote.

Sounds fair to me.

You don’t even deserve an answer.


Exodus is in the Old Testament. We live off of the laws in the New Testament because they changed many of the Old Testament ones.

any book that condones with murder like in these verses

31:17-18 “Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.”

Ezekiel 9:6 “Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women . . . ”

Isaiah 13:16 “Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished.”

Deuteronomy 13:15 “Thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly . . . ”

Leviticus 20:9 “For every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death . . . ”

Exodus 32:27 “. . . Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour.”

Deut 21:10-12 “When thou goest forth to war against thine enemies, and the LORD thy God hath delivered them into thine hands, and thou hast taken them captive, And seest among the captives a beautiful woman, and hast a desire unto her, that thou wouldest have her to thy wife; Then thou shalt bring her home to thine house, and she shall shave her head, and pare her nails; ”

Exodus 31:15 ” . . . whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.”

Deut 21:21 “And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die . . . ”

Luke 19:27 Jesus said, “But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.”

is an affront to anything moral

Old testament it was not recommended but God knew man is so wicked and made allowances for his sinful nature.
The oral law forbid such a practice.
Today that is statutory rape and he goes to jail for 10 years.
That is because we are a Christian nation who does not allow pedofiles to molest children.

This is the Old Testament and Christ never preached any of this!!!

I think you need to read the entire Bible and not just the ‘hot pages’!!!

“You see, it was different then. That was Old Testament.”

And they accuse us atheists of moral relativism as if it were a nasty thing? I also see from the responses that they missed a fundamental concept behind the law. What was violated when the virgin was deflowered? A moral sin of sexual indulgence? No, the father’s property rights. A virgin is worth big bucks, and the father’s investment was stolen. The offender must pay up. And now if she has sex again before marriage? No law covering that. It no longer matters.

P.S. – I love how Dove assumes that a virgin must be below the age of consent. Not too confident in that whole abstinence idea, huh?

wats ur question??

If you keep part of the law(THE OLD TESTIMENT) you must keep it all……Christ died for our sins and fulfilled the old law……….I thank God that he set a way for man .think about it………..some people live like animals……..Keep the one you want to marry, a virgin till then…God Bless.

These are civil laws- fool— just like today.. Laws made by men–for a better community… JUST AS WE HAVE TODAY.

WOW! your ignorance is showing…

you need to look where you are reading
need to know who wrote what, why , where and its application..

its like this:

one day a holy man prayed and said jesus i will follow the bilbe, you talk to me…The bible was in his had, he opened the bible and read out what he saw:

“Judas hang himself”

He closed the bible, and tought its not for me and has no meaning for me.
then he prayed and said he will follow what is said in the bible as soon as he opens it.
he opened again
it read ” You also go and do the same”

…. so dont pull out sentences from bible and quote..
its not the way…its what the fools do.

I see the Christians are attacking you for twisting “gods word” and using it against them, but they do the same trying to convert everyone to their sad pathetic religion…it is pretty pathetic….the bible even says you’re better doing a whore than masterbating…what does that tell you???

Oh yes! I’m proud of it – despicable as it might sound! Who would not be proud of a jealous god who drowned the entire world out of “infinite mercy”? Who gave wonderful laws such as the one you’ve quoted? What about laws concerning slavery and how to brand slaves in Exodus 21. All that given by a god who is no respecter of persons! The impartial one who appointed a favourite people and murdered others for their sake! I’m so proud of that “book of morals” that I did the right thing about it here:

It is indeed Old Testament, but Jeebus was not about to allow anyone to ignore any of it. Naturally, new, born again types do, because they are idiots.
