We really have to be tuned in to what the Word of God says about a thing. Get rid of opinion. Get rid of saying what’s “politically correct” to fit it. At the end of the day none of that stuff matters and all that really matters is what the Word says. Siding with people could mean that you are siding against God. Don’t try to have an opinion about what the Word clearly explains. If anyone presents you with an idea or a theory or a way of thinking, your very first question should be, “what does the Word say about it?” A good example here is this “I’m an ally” or “equality” thing. The question here is what does the Word say about it? After you give them time to answer, go to the Word yourself and ask God to help you understand those verses so you can live those verses out in your life.
Let’s look at some scripture here. I Corinthians 6:9-11 gives clear examples of how to be delivered from any immorality.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
New Living Translation (NLT)
9 Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, 10 or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people—none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God. 11 Some of you were once like that. But you were cleansed; you were made holy; you were made right with God by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
So what is sexual sin? Sex outside of the marriage covenant. Some folks think that marriage is about love. Marriage is not about the world’s kind of love. It is about the God kind of love which is unconditional and it is about COVENANT. That covenant is sealed when the husband and wife have intercourse and become one flesh. Look at Ephesians 5:31 here. The man is supposed to leave his father and mother . . . that let’s you know homosexuality is not God’s plan. But don’t let me get off track here, because this is not a post about homosexuality. This is a post about things that will separate you from God. If you are not married and you are having sex you fit in the scripture listed above in Corinthians. But look at verse 11. It says, YOU WERE ONCE LIKE THAT. This verse means that you don’t have to stay like that! You can be cleansed from all of that in Jesus. So many folks walking around outside of the will of God with their own agendas, not living the abundant life and walking in the fullness that God has for them because they say that they were born a certain way and that’s just how they are. Of course you can be born a certain way, the devil has the free range of the earth. He can cause problems in the womb just like he can cause problems elsewhere. Come out of fornication, back biting, lying ,stealing, homosexuality and perverseness. Begin to live the abundant life today. Send us a reply or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
