There are tons of rules, directions and sins mentioned in the Bible but special attention is given to sexual sin. 1 Corinthians 6:18 explains that when someone sins sexually it is a sin against their body. The reason sexual sin is different from murder, stealing, or lying is because it effects you physically, emotionally and spiritually.
In today’s world we are constantly being tempted to compromise our beliefs and convictions. In todays world it is more unusual to live the principles of the Bible then to follow them. Things like sex outside of marriage, homosexuality and drugs and alcohol are encouraged in today’s world. This makes the life of a Christian a constant battle with temptation.
I am currently studying 1 Corinthians and todays passage was 1 Corinthians 6. This passage decided to settle strongly on the topic of sexual sin. I thought that if this is important enough to God to take the better portion of chapter 6 to talk about this that maybe I should touch on this topic again.
In America.. actually in the world today, sex is a huge emphasis. We are bombarded with it no matter where we go, so I think that we need to really be careful in this area as it is so easy to stumble into in our society.
The Boy and the Girl dated for years and even went to church. Their relationship was growing and they thought they had a good thing going.
The boy had a secret. This secret had not yet surfaced and the girl had no idea what to expect. The boy had an addiction, to women and images that society makes sound so normal. This addiction to pornography started to blur the lines between reality and fantasy and reared its ugly head in their relationship. The problem came to a head and the girl found out. She was shocked, devastated and hurt.
In the last blog Boy meets Girl the boy caught the girls attention. The story did end there. The boy and the girl began dating.
When the boy won the girls heart she was 14 and 15. They both loved Jesus and knew that their dating relationship must be kept pure. Things like sex and fooling around would be a long way in the future. They know there would be many years before they could get married and these things would be allowed.
Its not like pornography is rape or anything so it doesn’t hurt anyone…. Does it??
Pornography does hurt people! Specifically it hurts God, Your Family, and You!
It hurts God because it goes against his command. You find in Mathew 5:28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. When a person is watching porn it is for no reason other than lust, so that person is breaking Gods 7th command!
When you go into schools all across the U.S. you would think that the kids are there for an education; to learn, get challenged, and to reach goals they never thought were attainable. Well think again. Schools these days are full of smart comments about who had sex with who the past night or who their gonna have sex that night.
Ok… stop the train. We are in HIGH SCHOOL! Ages 13-18. We should not be thinking about these things this young of age.
Yes, it is true…
Yes, it is true that being homosexual is a sin, but so is stealing lying, heterosexual sex outside of marriage, and coveting your neighbors things.
