Revelation 21:8 - The Sexually Immoral
|"The cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral,
those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars
- their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death."
The definition of immoral is deliberately
violating accepted principles of right and wrong.
The sexually immoral includes: prostitution,
pornography, having sex outside of marriage,
homosexuality, and adultery.
The bible says, "Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside
his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. Do you not know that your
body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?
You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your
body." (1 Corinthians 6:18-20)
You are supposed to honor God with your body. When you are sexually immoral, you sin
against God and yourself. God knows your every thought and action. The bible says living
a homosexual life style is wrong. You need to repent and turn from your wickedness. You
can not hide your sins from God. On Judgement Day, all of your sins will be exposed.
The 7th commandment is: "You shall not commit adultery." (Exodus 20:14)
Jesus said, "You have heard that it was said, 'Do not commit adultery.' But I tell you that
anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his
heart." (Matthew 5:27-28) If you have ever looked at anyone with lust, that makes you an
adulterer at heart.
All pornography is sexually immoral. You are not supposed to even look with lust. God
can help you overcome any type of sin.
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify
us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9)
Do you not know that
the wicked will not
inherit the kingdom of
God? Do not be
deceived: Neither the
sexually immoral nor
adulterers nor male
nor thieves nor the
greedy nor drunkards
nor slanderers nor
swindlers will inherit
the kingdom of God."
(1 Corinthians 6:9-10)
