The Greek term for “fornication” is “porneia”, which means that harlotry (including adultery and incest); figuratively, idolatry: The NKJ renders “fornication” as “sexual immorality.” The NIV renders it as “marital unfaithfulness/infidelity.” As you can observe Christianity has composed its very own meaning of fornication to suggest intercourse before wedding.
