Where does the bible say that you shouldn’t have sex BEFORE marriage?

Matthew 5:28 But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

If even looking is a sin, how much more is doing?

God wants you to wait in part because He made you and knows what is best for you, even if waiting is very difficult.
Physically
1. No STD’s or AIDS. Dying is more difficult than waiting.
2. No unwanted pregnancies. Being a parent is harder than waiting too.

Emotionally
1. No being used for sex.
2. If the relationship doesn’t work out, you’ll be less hurt, carry less baggage, and be better prepared for when the right one comes along.

Marriage
1. People who have sex and/or live together divorce more often than those you don’t. (www.marriagebuilders.com/graphic/mbi502…
2. The same people who’s marriages last are less happy in marriage.

Spiritually
1. Sin separates us from God. This alone should be enough if you love God.

John 14: 15 “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.

Be careful of trampling on the grace of God.
Matthew 7:21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.

I Corinthians 6:18 Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. 19 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, 20 for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

Is referring to God as a parent degrading?

No offense to your beliefs, but as an almighty being above all mankind the maker and creator of all that is good, is the role of a father not a degradation of God’s entity and existence? Is it not contradictory in some way that we see Him as our creator and yet some call him a father and believe Jesus is his son? Where is the logic in such a disparaging title? How is he able to conceive? In my religion Islam, we believe Mary was a virgin, and Jesus was conceived by a miracle from God, just like Noah’s Arc just like all other miracles by God. So how is it that one would call Him Jesus’ father? Does that make Mary his wife? That seems absurd to me, is it simply a title given out of respect?
Please clarify further for I’d like to understand where the logic is behind this, without any “we have to be blindly following faith” because that answer simply does not suffice
Thank you

I don’t know why and you have not explained why it would.

How is he able to conceive? In my religion Islam, we believe Mary was a virgin, and Jesus was conceived by a miracle from God,

It’s the same in Christianity.  God miraculously provided the fertilized egg in Mary’s womb.
