Pre-Marital Sex

My friends tell me it is better to have sexual experience before I get married?

Marriage establishes a covenant relationship, sealed by sexual intercourse. God wants a man and a woman who wants to get married to be virgins for this reason. This is the deceit of satan, Eph.5:3,6-8 says “But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;
Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light.”

In 1Corinthians7:1-5, Apostle Paul writes that those who are dating or contemplating marriage should wait to be married to have sex. So abstain from every appearance of evil, it will only lead you to sin against God.
Proverbs 6:27-28 says:
“Can a man take fire to his bosom and his clothes not be burned? Can one walk on hot coals, and his feet not be seared?” So stop before you get there, draw boundaries and stick to them.
1Thess.4:3 says:
“For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication.”
1Corinthians 6:18 says:
“Flee fornication.”
2Timothy 2:22 says:
“Flee also youthful lusts…” Flee means to run.
1Cor.7:2 says:
“Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own WIFE, and let every woman have her own HUSBAND.”
This applies to both males and females.
