Fasting Sex and a View

 

Been a New Year, most churches are under-going fasting. Both the old and New Testament talks about fasting which is abstaining from food and drink in order to focus on prayer and seeking God’s will.

How long to fast for and what to pray about depends on individual needs and strength. Some people fast for day s without food or drink, while some break at noon or evening.2 Sam 1-12.Always consult your physician before embarking on a fast if you have medical issues.

This brings the issue of sexual relationship amongst Christian couple during fasting, upon my inquiry am yet to come upon a bible verse that states that married couple should deprive/abstain from sexual relationship during fasting. 1 Corin 7.5(do not deprive each other excerpt perhaps by mutual consent and for a time, so that you Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control)

Sexual abstinence while fasting, should be determined on individual bases, not as stated by your pastor
