Controversial media personality, Daddy Freeze has claimed that the scripture is not against couple who are engaged to be married having sexual intercourse.
He stated this while reacting to claims that Nollywood actor, Alex Ekubo, refused to be intimate with his estranged fiance, Fancy Acholonu, for the 5 years of their relationship because of religious reasons.
Freeze wondered how a couple in a committed relationship for five years will not be sexually intimate on grounds of religion.
He added that it’s not a sin because the scripture doesn’t consider “concubinage, polygamy, or an engaged or betrothed couple having intercourse” as sexual immorality.
According to him, the word “fornication” was born of the ignorance of those who transcribed the original Greek word for prostitution to English.
The controversial OAP wrote,
“How can you be in a committed relationship for 5 years and not have intercourse? The scriptural punishment for a man having intercourse with a v!rgin is that he must marry her.
The church concept of fornication was based on a mistranslation by King James, of the Greek word
‘Tropveig’ which meant s3xual immorality. An engaged or betrothed couple having sez was not considered immorality.
“The word fornication was created by the authors of the King James Bible, borne out ignorance of the linguistic expression of the original Koine Greek word ‘topveia’; which, in a more linear perspective meant prostitution, while in a broader scope s3xual immorality.
Never in history of scripture, has concubinage, polygamy or an engaged or betrothed couple having intercourse been referred to as s3xual immorality.
The scriptural penalty, according to the law of Moses, for having intercourse, is paying the bride price and marrying the VIrgin. There is nowhere in scripture, where Christ adjusted this particular law. So if your intentions are pure and you are going to marry the person you are doing it with, then I struggle to see what the problem is.
Exodus 22:16 –
New International Version
“If a man seduces a virgin who is not pledged to be married and sleeps with her, he must pay the bride-price, and she shall be his wife.”
