Why is the Bible Against Sex?

Of all those in church, 80 to 90 percent, young and old, think the Bible has a negative view of sex.

The Bible is not against sex. There’s not a single verse in the Bible that calls sex sin. There’s not one verse in the Bible against sex or that says sex is wrong or dirty.

Now, don’t misunderstand, there are many passages in the Bible that speak against the misuse of sex, of sexual expression outside of the loving commitment of marriage. It is not sex but rather the misuse of sex that the Bible calls fornication, adultery, etc.
