Sexual Sin is a sin which we take pretty lightly in modern day. So often members of church congregations set their own standards and opinions about sexual sin. So many pretend they do harm by sleeping with someone outside of marriage . Thinking it is just a natural desire they gave into and no harm will be done. Gods ways are higher than our ways and he is a loving God. I think the majority of humanity sexually sin. Because the world is not of the same yoke as us. We cannot live as the world. When we sin we sin against ourselves and against our own heart and spirit as well as the Living God. Our hearts must be clean and without carnal lusts that seduce our hearts from the life of our Lord Jesus Christ. We have to be faithfull to he who can save our soul and conform to his image. Because he is also he who can throw us in hell for not fellowshipping with all our hearts and loving his ways instead of our own ways.
1 Corinthians 5:11 >>

But actually, I wrote to you not to associate with any so-called brother if he is an immoral person, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler-- not even to eat with such a one.
So often there is someone at work or someone in someones family who is young and single or even divorced and single who claims to be a brother or sister in the faith and sexually sins associating with people who have never been born into the kingdom of God. These people often make it clear that they believe they are the Lords children and they are our brothers. I have met several young jocks and hip hoppers who believe this way. Also it seems common amongst pop culture followers to believe it right to live in sin and party and play in the same manner as the world. Its not that God doesnt forgive people. Its that we have to really believe in marriage and live in accordance with the instructions of The Lord and not make our own image of Christ according to our ego and lusts of the flesh. I believe if someone just tells people who are swingin single that they believe Gods way is to believe in marriage and to live more carefully so that life has more to do with the heart than just getting laid. Something to that effect and choosing not to go out to dinner with someone who says they are a christian and really is going to the club on a regular basis sleeping with multiple sex partners. People shouldnt be decieved by these people I have dealt with several. Many people in the military are this way . They are harder to deal with because they are fellowshipping by law to protect our nation making it their nation . They believe the military is God and that might makes right. God is mightier dont let them destroy the life God gave you. They dont experience the happiness and peace Christs communion blesses us with. So be carefull if you sin playing around and dating someone . Dont try and make it seem ok. Seek the Lord for the truth about the way it really is that you did sin. If you feel pressured in a relationship don't give into temptation. If you are sure youre heart is in the right place and its not just a fling. Expect the other to honor marriage dont be afraid of marriage be afraid of God. God is Love greater than we Understand..
"But sexual immorality and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. For this you know, that no sexually immoral or unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God."
"Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God. ...Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's."
I Corinthians 6:9-11,18-20
"Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God."
"Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: sexual immorality, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience..."
"Marriage is honorable among you all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge."
"Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, sexual immorality, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God."
