  • Jeannie for verse 18
    I praise our God in Heaven for his precious word for helping me in the trials of temptation... I constantly stay in His word.. The Joy of the Lord is definitely my strength.....

    I have to agree whole heartily, the bible says a woman Is created for man and is his help mate. And jesus died for the whole world sins that accepts him as thier savior. I'm getting ready to get off track a little. If a man is covered by the blood of jesus and dips back in his old ways, weather it be with the same sex or any other sinful act: it could be just in our hearts or physically touching, but we all that live on earth do sin and will sin until we receive our new bodies. Yet we are covered by his blood. I still don't know exactly how God deals with us on this issue.I know he is the only one that can weigh our sin issues out
  • So many things the world has to offer. Much of which at first glance seems pretty innocent. But whatever distracts us from a total commitment to Christ can eventually lukewarm our soul. My passion was sports which is certainly no sin but it robed me of a passion for God. The things of this world will pass away so why deposit emotion into a worthless treasure. Seek Gods Grace for 20 20 spiritual vision. Let Gods spirit rule.
  • Sinner Saved By Grace for verse 9
    Gods word is truth! When God created man,he said, it is not good that man should be alone. God gave him a help mate, which was a women, not a man.
  • Charliegirl for verse 9
    Be not deceived God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.Galations 6:7 The ACT itself is WICKED and PERVERSE. God never intended for two men or two women to be together sexually. If you are openly or not behaving and conducting yourself in a manner that is not pleasing to God... Better get it right. Tomorrow may be too late for you.
  • Reshma
    Fornication is sinning against our own body. We are bought with a price which was paid by christ. Since we are his we should glorify him with our bodies for our bodies are temples.
