Sexual Sins

Rape, and any sexual abuse is both a sin, and a crime.

Homosexual acts are a sin. 

Adultery is a sin.

So is pre-marital sexual intercourse.

So is pornography.

“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, who 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 6:18-20 NKJ)

It is wrong to focus on a particular sexual sin, such as homosexuality, and ignore other sexual sins such as pornography, or pre-marital sex.  As Christians we should be seeking to maintain purity in our own lives and encouraging it in the lives of other believers.

Please note the “as Christians”.  For people who do not believe in Jesus as the Christ, or the Bible as the Word of God,  their view towards sex will be established by societies’ norms.  Our message to them should begin with hope, love and forgiveness; not pointing out what we perceive as sinful behaviour, but offering the grace of God in Jesus.

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”  (I John 1:9)

This cleansing is an ongoing process.  We should seek to grow in godliness.  This certainly includes the attitude that we have towards sex.  As Christians we should follow Biblical teachings, not the norms of an ever-changing society.

    God’s word does not change. His grace and mercy are new every morning. Latest stats that I heard are 92% of the 5 trillion pages on the internet are porn. Is that accurate? I certainly am not going to personally do the research.
    God calls us to repentance. Repent — change the way we think and act. Praise God He doesn’t expect us to do that on our own but is right there every step of the way.

    Gloria, It is good to know that God helps us to become the people that He wants us to be. It is not in our own strength, but by His Spirit.

    Could not agree more Pastor Curt. To unbelievers it would look less like Christians are picking on homosexual sin if we spoke the truth (and lived it) about all sexual sin.
