The bible calls sex before marriage fornication. In the bible sex is ordained for Godly marriages. It was not meant to be a pleasureable thing for unmarried folk. It was meant to populate the earth with children of whom would grow up in Godly homes, and be Godly when they were older. The lust of the flesh is a sin. The bible says that if we look at another person with lust in our eyes, we have already committed adultery with that person, and adultery is a sin also.
What we must realize as Christians is that there are 3 main things with Christ.
You must be saved. You must be saved. You must confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that he died for our sins and has risen from the grave, and is not sitting at the right hand of our father in heaven. This is what gets you in to heaven.
We secondly must be sanctified. God calls Christians to be peculiar people. Romans 12:2 says that we should be not comformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our minds. This means that we can be around worldly people as long as we aren't being influenced to compromise, and as long as we aren't compromiseing our relationship with Christ for them. Whe must sanctify ourselves, or set ourselves apart from worldly things. This gives access to the holy spirit.
Finally we must be baptized in the Holy Spirit. The bible lets us know that after we receive the Holy Spirit we will receive power. We will receive the power to bind Satan and resist him. The bible also says that if we resist the devil he will have no choice but to flee from us.
These three things help us to have an outstanding and radical relationship with Christ. If we follow these principles on Earth, we are sure to be rewarded in Heaven
