Sexual Sin Pt. 1

sinI was just reading a thread on a board that is supposed to be Christian and was amazed at the views on celibacy. Someone was saying they decided to be celibate for a season to clear their head to hear from God??? I’m confused!!

That is the problem with the church today. There really is no such thing as holiness and let me just say right here that I understand the struggle with sexuality. That is why people should get married. It’s God’s only LEGAL way to have sex. But in the world today, even “Christians” don’t believe that fornication is a sin. And some know it is, but they feel there is no way they can live in  holiness, so they don’t.

I think marriage is definitely the problem solver, but it’s a catch 22. If a man or woman are bound by fornication and they get married, will they remain faithful after marriage? Many times the unfaithfulness to God before marriage, seeps over into the marriage. I’ve seen it so many times.

Here is what the Bible says about sexual sin. (The Bible is the Christians instruction manual. GOD’S word, given to men inspired by HIm.

1 Corinthians 6:18

New Living Translation (NLT)

18 Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body.

1 Thessalonians 4:3-5

New Living Translation (NLT)

God’s will is for you to be holy, so stay away from all sexual sin. Then each of you will control his own body[a] and live in holiness and honor— not in lustful passion like the pagans who do not know God and his ways.

Matthew 5:28

New Living Translation (NLT)

28 But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

Ephesians 5:5

New Living Translation (NLT)

You can be sure that no immoral, impure, or greedy person will inherit the Kingdom of Christ and of God. For a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world.

1 Corinthians 7:2

New Living Translation (NLT)

But because there is so much sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman should have her own husband.

I’m going to continue this in the next post. But there is no way you are serving God and right with Him, JUSTIFYING sexual sin. I didn’t say STRUGGLING, but I said doing it with no thought that you are doing wrong.

When God starts addressing things in your life, it means he is coming for it. Get your house in order, because God is going to deal with it. No one is exempt from living Holy if you call yourself a Christian.
