This question may seem a little crazy but I have had more than one conversation in the past couple of weeks which implies that people think sin is sin but do not tell me that sex is a sin outside of marriage.
If you are reading this statistically you have been guilty of doing this as well. I know so many people that have turned out fine doing this but, as I dig into the conversation, it appears that everyone that has, wishes they would not have done what they have done.
Personally, I have had people sit before me who are happy that they have had recreational sex to people crying with remorse. I have even had people explain to me, based on doing this, they have contracted a sexual transmitted disease.
What I am getting at is that if having sex is something as simple as going to the bathroom, why does it seem to cause damage in so many people? I can tell you why. It is a big deal!!!
Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 1 Corinthians 6:18-19 (NIV)
The interesting thing is that sexual sin seems to be different than other sin but not in a way that you should practice it outside of what God has ordained.
Is it time for you to stop it and go to God and ask for forgiveness? Are you willing to make the act of sex something that you respect and treat as holy? Are you looking at porn and thinking it will not have an impact on your mind? Do you think sex is a spectator sport?
Premarital sex should not take place. Praying that God gives us eye and ears to see and hear His truth!
