Christians made up their stupid “sex rules”

Reading Bible scholars—I was shocked

“Thou shalt not have sex before marriage” — isn’t found in the Bible. But few of the Christian “rules” actually are.

When I looked up Bible scholarship about what they told me as a kid in church, I realized how often it was just made up.
