Proverbs 7:2 shows us, “Keep my commands and live, and my law as the apple of your eye”. Sex sins anger God so much because it is done against our body which is His place of habitation or living place. Don’t allow Him to vent His anger on you if you continuously carry out acts that inflict injury on His living place.

Read Margaret’s Story
Perhaps, you should listen to Margaret who describes how she had several opportunities to flee fornication but ended up getting involved in it which almost claimed her life:
“Having been involved in Christian works as a Christian since my early years, I must confess that I have had the opportunity of listening to a series of sermons and advice on the evils of fornication. I knew about the consequences. I knew God detests it. I have kept myself from it for many years and I had the resolution to stay a virgin until I get married. However, I broke this resolution and sinned against God and my body”.
