How Catholics and LDS / Mormons view Sex

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Catholic View on Sex
– The Catholic Church teaches that sex is a sacred and intimate act that is meant to be shared within the sacrament of marriage.
– Sex is seen as a way for a married couple to express their love for one another and to participate in God’s plan for procreation.
– The Church also teaches that sex should be open to the possibility of procreation and that artificial contraception is not in line with God’s plan for the marital act.
– Abstinence is also encouraged outside of marriage, and the Church teaches that premarital sex and adultery are sinful.

LDS/Mormon View on Sex
– The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), also known as the Mormon Church, teaches that sex is a sacred and essential part of God’s plan for his children.
– Similar to the Catholic Church, Mormon teachings emphasize abstinence outside of marriage and fidelity within marriage.
– The LDS Church promotes the idea of chastity, which includes abstaining from sexual relations before marriage and being faithful to one’s spouse after marriage.
– As with the Catholic Church, LDS teachings emphasize the importance of sex within the context of marriage and as a way to express love and to participate in God’s plan for procreation.

Overall, both the Catholic and LDS/Mormon views on sex emphasize its sacred nature and its importance within the context of marriage. These views promote a deep respect for the physical and emotional intimacy involved in sexual relations, and encourage individuals to uphold moral standards in their sexual behavior.

Bible Verses About Sex


1. 1 Corinthians 6:18-20 – “Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.”

2. Ephesians 5:31-32 – “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church.”

3. Hebrews 13:4 – “Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.”

LDS / Mormon

1. Doctrine and Covenants 42:22 – “Thou shalt love thy wife with all thy heart, and shalt cleave unto her and none else.”

2. Alma 39:3-5 – “And this is not all, my son. Thou didst do that which was grievous unto me; for thou didst forsake the ministry, and did go over into the land of Siron among the borders of the Lamanites, after the harlot Isabel. Yea, she did steal away the hearts of many; but this was no excuse for thee, my son. Thou shouldst have tended to the ministry wherewith thou wast entrusted.”

3. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 – “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
