Should Christian men preparing for Christian marriage refuse to marry a woman who conceived before marriage?

Yes, those whom God has called for Christian pastorate position should be careful about whom they marry.

God forgives sins, but a Christian pastor married to a woman who bore a child before marriage is not edifying to the church.

Teenagers in the church could say, “See, the pastor’s wife had a child outside of marriage and the pastor married her, so I can get a child before marriage and all will be okay!”

It is important to prevent pre-marital sex because sexual purity is important to God.   What kind of marriage the pastor has impacts the children of the church!

Sexual purity should be important for Christian men who want to become pastors of churches.

They should not date a woman who had a child out of marriage.

Abortion is murder, and it is good that the woman did not commit murder.

But sex before marriage is a heinous sin before God, because God wants sexual purity.

Men who want to be Christan pastors must expect their wife to have a history of sexual purity for the sake of Christ and Christian ministry.

Christian men who are called to Christian ministry do not belong to themselves, but to Christ and to be a servant of Christ for the people of God!
