    My understanding is that Jesus said that if you lust in your heart, you have committed sexual sin. Matthew 5:27. So, yes, I would say it is sin as Jesus calls it such.
  • Building up Self-Control - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 6
    I think this verse will inspire you. The reason being, that when we submit to fantasy and lust, our minds aren't on the Lord.

    Philippians 4:8

    Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

    One way to improve self-control is to remove everything that causes lack of it.

    Read in Proverbs for wisdom. Titus 1:15 and Genesis 38:6-10 for resolve to honor the Lord with your body. Paul taught that if we struggle with singleness, to consider marriage.

    I hope this helps.

    If a person would like to turn up the volume with there relationship/connection with God,Jesus n the Holy

    3 basic easy things one can do,to make it happen.self titled subject.Three steps to walk with the Holy

    (if not currently doin)

    1st is.

    No Cussing or crazy violent thoughts.after a person has not been around it for awhile,its amazing how nasty it sounds.Another reason is Righteousness and Raunchyness,cannot co-exist together.the dark force knows this and That is there main reason/tactic to impose them selves on people. most humans dont know it!...

    Purity cannot abide with nastyness.A lie cannot abide with Truth.Justice cuts off lie's/evl from truth/righteous.(whole nother story)..ha

    2nd step. Give to the Poor. anything..

    the more a person gives the more God will give, unique match of 'I will do what you do.or more. in his wonderous ways

    3rd step

    Do Not Work on Sundays..no lawn maintenance ,construction etc. This means more to God then can put into words... calls it 'Polluting of his Sabbaths' this day is set aside to smell the flowers/chill out,Reflect n do a Recharge.

    perfectly fine to water/feed plants,pets n family,to help in a emergency.Not a day of personal gain,day of Thankyou

    it could be worse.alot of info here was obtained thru supernatural experiences.Great results are 100% Guaranteed.

    For life

    Who ever you are ,thankyou for that ,may God keep you very very close to Him .
  • -I have committed at least half of those sins in verse , and that was after i knew better let me say to all those who are dabbling in alcohol, drugs and being immoral its not worth it, your reputation, your self esteem once gone is hard to so very hard to get back, then lies people will lie to about you and people will believe it because why not you done all kind of other things. But worse of all you might begin to doubt your salvation and that is not a place that you want to be, because you might like i did realize late in life that you wasted time, because only what we do for Christ matters. Stay in the word and if you stray get back into it immediately.
  • Mountain Preacher on 1 Corinthians 6:13
    Spencer : the reason that many older people choose to live together without matrimony is that if they choose to marry they can possibly lose benefits that they are receiving as a surviving spouse. Often they will secretly get married and never file the marriage license with the state for that reason. In the eyes of God they are married since before the government got involved and made marriage a money making racket their was no license needed to get married. That is how I see it.

    In the Old Testament, homosexuality was condemned by God with the punishment of death.

    Lev 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

    This same thought is supported in the New Testament.

    Rom 1:26-27 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: (27) And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    Rom 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

    I agree with your friend. When you say "I'm not sure," are you saying that you're not sure your friend is telling you the truth, or, are you not sure that what you read in the bible about the subject is correct?

    Whenever someone shares something with a believer concerning the bible, the believer has a responsibility to search the scriptures to see for themselves if what they are being told is true. Please know that I'm not trying to be rude. I am simply challenging you to search the scriptures for the truth. I can share scripture with you about what the bible teaches on homosexuality, but unless you search the scriptures for yourself, how are you going to know what I'm telling you is true? How do you even know if what your friend told you is true unless you search the scriptures?

    I don't know if you read the bible or not, or if you do, how much you've read of it, but if you've not read it at all and need help finding specific verses on God's view of sexual immorality, I would be happy to share those with you. I'm sure others would be happy to help also.

    For we are saved by grace through faith ( Ephesians 2:8-9), receive the remission of sins through faith ( Acts 10:43), and became God's children through faith in Jesus Christ ( Gal. 3:26). As saved person, we are to glorify God in whatsoever ye do ( 1 Cor. 10:31) and be filled with the Holy Spirit ( Eph. 5:18). Lastly, God forbids us to continue in sin ( Romans 6:12-15). I am praying for you that you will be convicted that even God promised us about the assurance of salvation but He also forbids us to continue in sin and sin cannot please Him.
  • Ernest - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 6
    A Christian is a follower of the teachings of Christ and Biblical doctrines

    1Peter 1:16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

    Romans 12:1-2

    "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service."

    "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."

    Ask yourself am I being Holy.? Am I being transformed ?

    To be conformed is taking on the shape of an object such as jelly in a bowl. To be transformed is taking on a completely new form such a catapiller being transformed into into a butterfly. Why would someone come to Jesus for salvation from the evils of this world and all that is sinful and still desires that which occupies the sinners world and mind.

    If there is no desire in my heart to want the sincere milk of the word of God with a corresponding desire to follow and obey its teachings I would have to question the reality of my conversion.

    Except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God

    Nor will he ever enter therein.
  • Adam - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 6
    Dear Steve,

    God saves and forgives sin of those who genuinely follow and obey Him. But the fact that you're asking this says to me that you think it's wrong. If you think it's wrong why continue to do it? If you're a Christian why not do everything you can to please God and treat your body as a holy temple? 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

    Matthew 5:30
  • Steve Beeson on 1 Corinthians 6
    Will continuing to smoke cigarettes and pot cause the Lord to blot my name out of the book of life and therefore lose my salvation and end up missimg out on going tto heaven and being with the Lord firever?
  • S Spencer - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 6
    Hi George,

    I have to agree with Chris. My personal opinion is if they going to be together, living together, sharing a bed together, it seems this is a relationship whether intimate or not no matter what age they are. It might not only hurt your witnessing going forward but also puts a stain on your past testimonies. Marriage may be considered.
  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 6
    The scenario you present falls into that 'grey' area of Christian living according to the Word. The Bible doesn't specifically speak about it, yet our consciences & good sense require us to examine that 'platonic' relationship. It could also apply to younger people who determine that no physical act would take place during their residence together in the same house or even the same bed.

    But is it just a situation of clean living before God, or does this apply before others? Or, how do other people (both believers & unbelievers) perceive this life choice? Is it then a case of 'who cares what people think as long as I'm living correctly before God?'

    1 Thessalonians 5:32 tells us to "Abstain from all appearance of evil." Even though within the house, nothing is 'out of order', but can that relationship be misconstrued as inconsistent with godly living? Is our testimony shaken or destroyed because of it? Is it a big issue to have that love that is shared with each other ratified by a simple Registry Wedding, so no one is left in doubt & there be no 'behind the back small talk' against you? Though marrying at that age might bring on other comments of which one should have no concern.

    So this lifestyle really comes down to a personal decision as a Christian, but where all the issues are carefully considered & no opportunity for sin, or the appearance of it, exists before God & man. Others here might have other views to share on this.
  • George Hasten on 1 Corinthians 6
    What would be the differnice of two old people over age 80 who's mate is dead for them to live toughter and shear the same bed there is no sex just kiss good night, Or to wont to be toughter but because of Corinthians 6-15 to 19

  • yes I agree totally, also as Luke writes in Chapter 17

    32 Remember Lot's wife.

    33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.

    To Stan, read what Jesus said in John 3:3-5. Read also Luke 24:47. This was fulfilled in Acts 2:38. It is for everyone in the world. In the book of Acts, they were water baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. From the book of Romans - Jude, these are the saints that came from the book of Acts & were Water baptized & filled w the Holy . Ghost Many chapters are in the New Testament on water baptism. We need water baptism (blood is applied; as well as receiving the Holy Ghost (Spirit). In Matthew 26:28 Jesus said, "For this is my blood of the New testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins". Acts 2:38 is the new testament salvation as we follow Christ in all his ways. Praise his name.
  • Jack C Gutknecht on 1 Corinthians 6:13
    1 Corinthians 6:18 I like this better from the NIV. Compare the King James Version with the NIV:

    KJV -Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

    NIV - Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body,

    but whoever sins sexually,

    sins against their own body.
  • Miles Pride on 1 Corinthians 6:9
    The Adamic Sin contaminated all humans except Christ. Diseases, deformities etc. Are also results of our cursed bodies.

    That brings up another thorny issue. Homosexuality as a "choice" is one thing. However, genetics can confuse sexual identity as well! These persons are the most complex and should NOT be confused with persons who CHOSE the life. Genuine Genetic homosexuals must trust Christ for their Salvation and their sanity. Every ones walk with Christ is personal and God gives GRACE! The most important thing to say to God to keep from GIVING HIM UP is this...LORD, you know my failings. But in spite of MY failings I will Always Declare YOU ARE RIGHT AND HOLY! FOR BETTER OR WORSE I THROW MYSELF ON YOUR MERCY. AMEN.

    This declaration from your heart will help you to cling to God when OTHER CHRISTIANS SAY "YOU" HOMOSEXUALS are Not Worthy. GOD is able and willing to keep you SAVED if you declare HIM to be RIGHT. Christ Died for you, those Christians did not. Satan wants you to abandon God, because Satan wants to drive you insane.

    One day our flesh will no longer be at odds with God's Spirit [in] us. Because as Paul says when this flesh goes back to dust, we will receive our SINLESS GLORIFIED BODIES! ALLELUYAH!!!

  • Chris - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 6
    My understanding: the Sabbath was created as a day of rest for Israel ( Exodus 31:12-17), just as the Lord rested from His creative Work. This fourth commandment was blessed by God & sanctified (made holy) long before He gave it as a direct commandment to the children of Israel. It was a day of complete rest (cessation from the activity that occupied the other six days) & a day devoted to God. The other important sign given to Israel to set them apart from all other nations, was the act of circumcision. Both were for Israel only.

    From the time of Israel's exodus out of Egypt, they learned which day was the actual Sabbath: Exodus 16:25-27, when they found no manna on the ground on that day. Ever since then, the count was on: 6 days work - 1 day rest, right up to the time of Jesus when He observed the same Sabbath, indeed He did 'work' in it, saying that the Sabbath was created for man & not the other way around.

    So the Sabbath was a specific day of rest for the Jews. And it could fall on that day as well, or any other day, for non-Jews. The important point was that man took the day off to cease from his labours for both physical & spiritual recuperation. Where this observance becomes a problem for Christians, is the compulsion by some that we too are bound to a Jewish Saturday Sabbath, & by extension, full obedience to the Law, which none could keep. This Law was not a sign to Christians but to the Jew who was under the Law. Hear what Paul says pertaining to the Law & the Christian: Romans 3:19-22; Galatians 3:21-25; Galatians 4:21-26; Galatians 5:16-18.

    If the Christian then sets aside Sunday, the Lord's Day ( Revelation 1:10) as a day of rest & worship, he fulfils the need for both. If he chooses any other day as a rest day, does it matter to the Lord? Colossians 2:16,17. If one believes that the keeping of the Sabbath does matter to the Lord, then he shows a misunderstanding of the Law engraven in stones & the Law of the Life-giving Spirit ( Romans 8:2).
  • Rodney on 1 Corinthians 6
    Good Morning.

    I have just woken up, and read Those precious inspirational verses and I thank God and His Beloved Son Jesus Christ. I am inspired by your diligence and commitment to the verse of the day. Let me begin with stating I am a welder by trade non the less I read God's word and study as best as I can.i pray for God's Holy Spirit to lead me into all truth.my question is this when the Heavens and the earth were created in 6 days God created the Heavens and the earth and on the 7 the day God rested from His work

    ..can you even try to imagine or fathom how God did creat the Heavens and the earth and specifically put aside one day ."The 7 th day Sabbath try to imagine the awesome event and the Adam and Eve were created and they were commanded to do the same to rest on the Sabbath day.now I cannot even try to explain the importance of the 7th day Sabbath .A simple analogy ,when a person is born can he change his birthdate to another day and if so why would he do so in the first place ? Fact is it can't be done and has never been done. So the same with creation .so why would God authorise the ,7th day to be substituted with the first day of the week as the IST day Sabbath the day of rest.there a verse in the Bible God says not one dot or tittle shall be changed in the Bible. Could you please give me your view point on the Sabbath. ,and may I ask further questions regarding the 7 the day Sabbath.

    Kind Regards

    "Abusers of themselves with mankind" primarily refers to homosexuality & paedophilia. One could also look at the verse as a person abusing their God-appointed gender & its appropriate behaviour by choosing to act in ways contrary to proper manner. You will notice that "effeminate" is also included in that list & probably does not have the same meaning as we know it today, but to "sensuality & corrupt indulgences" which might have inferred crossing the gender boundaries & which was common in the Greek world.
  • Rosalie on 1 Corinthians 6
    1 Corinthians 6 verse 9....nor abusers of themselves with mankind. Can you expand a little what this passage means?
