Sexual Immorality

Sins against your body – the temple of the Holy Spirit

I read this article from John Piper?s ministry – very to the point.

1Ti 5:1 Never speak harshly to an older man, but appeal to him as if he were your father. Treat younger men like brothers,

1Ti 5:2 older women like mothers, and younger women like sisters, with absolute purity.

Believers are to be evenly yoked with fellow believers.

Dating someone within the church means that you are spending time with your brothers and sisters,

A man who meets a women at church and decides to court her, sleeping with her would be then sleeping with his sister,

UNLESS

They were to get married in which case she would not be his sister, but his wife.

Rom 13:13 Let us behave decently, as people who live in the light of day. No wild parties, drunkenness, sexual immorality, promiscuity, rivalry, or jealousy!

1Co 6:18 Keep on running away from sexual immorality. Any other sin that a person commits is outside his body, but the person who sins sexually sins against his own body.

1Co 7:2 But because sexual immorality is so rampant, every man should have his own wife, and every woman should have her own husband.

2Co 12:21 I am afraid that when I come my God may again humble me before you and that I may have to grieve over many who formerly lived in sin and have not repented of their impurity, sexual immorality, and promiscuity that they once practiced.

Eph 4:19 Since they have lost all sense of shame, they have abandoned themselves to sensuality and practice every kind of sexual perversion without restraint.

1Th 4:3 For this is God’s will, your sanctification, for you to abstain from fornication,

1Th 4:4 each one of you to know to possess his vessel in sanctification and honor,

1Th 4:5 not in passion of lust, even as also the nations do, not knowing God;

1Th 4:6 not to go beyond and to overreach his brother in the matter, because the avenger concerning all these is the Lord, even as we told you before, and solemnly testified.

1Th 4:7 For God did not call us to impurity, but in purity.

1Th 4:8 Therefore, the one that despises does not despise man, but God, even He giving His Holy Spirit to us.

1Th 4:9 Now as to brotherly love, you have no need for me to write to you, for you yourselves are taught by God to love one another.

Jud 1:7 Likewise, Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities near them, which like them committed sexual sins and engaged in homosexual activities, serve as an example of the punishment of eternal fire.

Heb 13:4 Let marriage be kept honorable in every way, and the marriage bed undefiled. For God will judge those who commit sexual sins, especially those who commit adultery.

On this day...
