For instance, during the lifetime of Jesus, there was a strong social disapproval among Romans of polygamy.

This made its way into Judaism and early Christianity, despite the Old Testament portraying examples of this behaviour among patriarchs and kings.

An historical example is the medieval English monastic, John Baconthorpe.

A more contemporary example is the modern-day theologian Lee Gatiss who argues that premarital sex is immoral based on scripture.

In 1611 King James Version, the first English translation of the Christian Bible Fornicated as an adjective is still used in botany, meaning "arched" or "bending over" (as in a leaf).

Some of the debate arises from the question of which theological approach is being applied.When someone disagreed with Paul's clear rules on immorality or angry disputes, the matters he deals with in Colossians 3.5–10, he is...firm, as we see dramatically in 1 Corinthians 5 and 6.There is no place in the Christian fellowship for such practices and for such a person." The early Church's statements on marital affairs mainly concerned acceptable reasons for divorce and remarriage.Whilst Paul, in his epistles to early believers, emphasised that both celibacy and marriage were good forms of life, after his life the Church felt that celibacy was more virtuous and liberating.

One theory therefore suggests that it is these behaviours, and only these, that are intended by Paul's prohibition in chapter seven.
