1-ADULTERY

    It is clearly written, THOU SHALT NOT COMMIT ADULTERY.
    Adultery is a married person having sex with someone other than his wife. God’s penalty in the Old Testament was death by stoning and a destroyed soul. The New Testament allows for repentance, if a person truly will go and sin no more and trust in Jesus Christ as their only hope of forgiveness.
    Putting away a wife, except for FORNICATION, causes her to commit FORNICATION. A man that marries a divorced woman commits FORNICATION. A man that divorces his wife, except for FORNICATION and marries someone else is committing adultery. A woman that puts away her husband and marries another person is committing adultery. Even looking on a woman to lust after her is committing adultery with her already in his heart. There are those whose eyes are full of adultery and that cannot stop sinning. These are cursed children. However, if the unbelieving person departs from a believer, the believer is not under bondage in such cases. The Scripture seems to indicate the one who leaves or divorces the other (except for the cause of FORNICATION) is an unbeliever.

    There is also a form of adultery that one can commit against God. To forsake God or to turn from trusting in God to trusting in something or someone else is adultery against God. For such, God can divorce that person. They can be assured that if they do not repent and are still alive when the Great Tribulation comes, they will enter into it. Click here to go to top of page.

BUT JESUS STOOPED DOWN, AND WITH HIS FINGER WROTE ON THE GROUND, AS THOUGH HE HEARD THEM NOT. SO WHEN THEY CONTINUED ASKING HIM, HE LIFTED UP HIMSELF, AND SAID UNTO THEM, HE THAT IS WITHOUT SIN AMONG YOU, LET HIM FIRST CAST A STONE AT HER. AND AGAIN HE STOOPED DOWN, AND WROTE ON THE GROUND. AND THEY WHICH HEARD IT, BEING CONVICTED BY THEIR OWN CONSCIENCE, WENT OUT ONE BY ONE, BEGINNING AT THE ELDEST, EVEN UNTO THE LAST: AND JESUS WAS LEFT ALONE, AND THE WOMAN STANDING IN THE MIDST. WHEN JESUS HAD LIFTED UP HIMSELF, AND SAW NONE BUT THE WOMAN, HE SAID UNTO HER, WOMAN, WHERE ARE THOSE THINE ACCUSERS? HATH NO MAN CONDEMNED THEE? SHE SAID, NO MAN, LORD.

FOR AT THE WINDOW OF MY HOUSE I LOOKED THROUGH MY CASEMENT, AND BEHELD AMONG THE SIMPLE ONES, I DISCERNED AMONG THE YOUTHS, A YOUNG MAN (WHO LACKED) UNDERSTANDING (or judgment), (He was) PASSING THROUGH THE STREET NEAR HER CORNER; (walking along in the direction of) HER HOUSE, IN THE TWILIGHT, IN THE EVENING, IN THE BLACK AND DARK NIGHT:
    10-AND, BEHOLD, THERE (CAME OUT A WOMAN TO MEET HIM, DRESSED LIKE A PROSTITUTE AND WITH CRAFTY INTENT-NIV). (SHE IS LOUD AND STUBBORN; HER FEET (NEVER STAY AT HOME-NIV): NOW IS SHE WITHOUT, NOW IN THE STREETS, AND LIETH IN WAIT AT EVERY CORNER.) SO SHE CAUGHT HIM, AND KISSED HIM, AND WITH AN IMPUDENT (or brazen) FACE SAID UNTO HIM, I HAVE PEACE (or fellowship) OFFERINGS (AT HOME); THIS DAY HAVE I PAYED MY VOWS.
    15-THEREFORE CAME I FORTH TO MEET THEE, (I HAVE LOOKED FOR YOU AND HAVE FOUND YOU!-NIV). I HAVE (COVERED) MY BED WITH (COLORED LINENS FROM EGYPT-NIV). I HAVE PERFUMED MY BED WITH MYRRH, ALOES, AND CINNAMON. COME, LET US (DRINK OF LOVE) UNTIL THE MORNING: LET US (ENJOY) OURSELVES WITH (LOVE)! FOR (MY HUSBAND) IS NOT AT HOME, HE IS GONE A LONG JOURNEY:
    20-HE HATH TAKEN A BAG OF MONEY WITH HIM, AND WILL COME HOME AT THE DAY APPOINTED. WITH HER MUCH FAIR SPEECH (or persuasive words) SHE CAUSED HIM TO YIELD (or led him astray), WITH THE FLATTERING OF HER LIPS (or smooth talk) SHE FORCED (or seduced) HIM. HE (FOLLOWED) AFTER HER STRAIGHTWAY, AS AN OX GOETH TO THE SLAUGHTER, OR AS A FOOL TO THE CORRECTION OF THE STOCKS; TILL A DART (or arrow) STRIKE THROUGH HIS LIVER; AS A BIRD (DARTING) TO THE SNARE, AND KNOWETH NOT THAT IT IS FOR HIS LIFE (or little knowing it will cost him his life-NIV).

    25-LET NOT THINE HEART DECLINE TO HER WAYS, GO NOT ASTRAY IN HER PATHS. FOR SHE HATH (BROUGHT) DOWN MANY WOUNDED (or victims): YEA, MANY STRONG MEN HAVE BEEN SLAIN BY HER. HER HOUSE IS THE WAY TO HELL, GOING DOWN TO THE CHAMBERS OF DEATH. Click here to go to top of page.

15-HOMOSEXUALS AND LESBIANS

    To practice homosexuality or lesbianism is an abomination to God. It is detestable to Him. In the Old Testament, the judgment for such behavior was death. Their blood was on their own heads. God clearly and unmistakably warns us in His Word not to do this. It is written:
    Lev 18:22-THOU SHALT NOT LIE WITH MANKIND, AS WITH WOMANKIND: IT IS ABOMINATION.
    Lev 18:22-"'DO NOT LIE WITH A MAN AS ONE LIES WITH A WOMAN; THAT IS DETESTABLE ." (NIV)
    Lev 20:13-"'IF A MAN LIES WITH A MAN AS ONE LIES WITH A WOMAN, BOTH OF THEM HAVE DONE WHAT IS DETESTABLE. THEY MUST BE PUT TO DEATH; THEIR BLOOD WILL BE ON THEIR OWN HEADS."  (NIV)

    In Judges, men having sex with men is clearly shown to be wicked and disgraceful.
    Judges 19:22-23-NOW AS THEY WERE MAKING THEIR HEARTS MERRY, BEHOLD, (some of) THE MEN OF THE CITY, CERTAIN SONS OF BELIAL (SURROUNDED THE) HOUSE ROUND, AND BEAT AT THE DOOR, AND (SHOUTED) TO THE MASTER OF THE HOUSE, THE OLD MAN, SAYING, BRING FORTH THE MAN THAT CAME INTO THINE HOUSE, THAT WE MAY KNOW HIM (or so we can have sex with him-NIV). AND THE MAN, THE MASTER OF THE HOUSE, WENT OUT UNTO THEM, AND SAID UNTO THEM, NAY, MY BRETHREN, NAY, I PRAY YOU, DO NOT SO WICKEDLY; SEEING THAT THIS MAN IS COME INTO MINE HOUSE, DO NOT THIS FOLLY (or disgraceful thing).

    God clearly and unmistakably shows in Romans that those who practice homosexuality and lesbianism are worthy of death. They shall surely perish unless they repent. It is written:
    Ro 1:18-32-FOR THE WRATH OF GOD IS REVEALED FROM HEAVEN AGAINST ALL UNGODLINESS AND UNRIGHTEOUSNESS (or wickedness) OF MEN, WHO HOLD (or suppress) THE TRUTH IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS (or by their wickedness); BECAUSE THAT WHICH MAY BE KNOWN (ABOUT) GOD IS MANIFEST IN (or plain to) THEM; FOR GOD HATH SHEWED (or made) IT UNTO THEM. FOR THE INVISIBLE THINGS OF HIM FROM THE CREATION OF THE WORLD ARE CLEARLY SEEN, BEING UNDERSTOOD BY THE THINGS THAT ARE MADE, EVEN HIS ETERNAL POWER AND GODHEAD (or divine nature); SO THAT THEY ARE WITHOUT EXCUSE: BECAUSE THAT, WHEN THEY KNEW GOD, THEY (NEITHER GLORIFIED HIM) AS GOD, NEITHER WERE THANKFUL; BUT BECAME VAIN (or futile) IN THEIR IMAGINATIONS (or thinking), AND THEIR FOOLISH HEART WAS DARKENED. (ALTHOUGH THEY CLAIMED) TO BE WISE, THEY BECAME FOOLS, AND CHANGED THE GLORY OF THE UNCORRUPTIBLE (or immortal) GOD INTO AN IMAGE (to look like) CORRUPTIBLE MAN, AND TO BIRDS, AND (ANIMALS AND REPTILES). WHEREFORE GOD ALSO GAVE THEM (OVER) TO (SINFUL DESIRES) THROUGH THE LUSTS (or sexual impurity) OF THEIR OWN HEARTS, TO DISHONOUR THEIR OWN BODIES BETWEEN THEMSELVES (or for the degrading of their bodies with one another-NIV):
   
25-(THEY) CHANGED THE TRUTH OF GOD INTO A LIE, AND WORSHIPPED AND SERVED THE CREATURE (or created things) (RATHER) THAN THE CREATOR, WHO IS BLESSED FOR EVER. AMEN. FOR THIS CAUSE GOD GAVE THEM UP UNTO VILE AFFECTIONS (or shameful lusts): FOR EVEN THEIR WOMEN DID CHANGE THE NATURAL USE INTO THAT WHICH IS AGAINST NATURE (or their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones-NIV): The women became lesbians. AND (IN THE SAME WAY) THE MEN, LEAVING THE NATURAL USE OF THE WOMAN (or the men also abandoned natural relations with women-NIV), BURNED IN THEIR LUST (or were inflamed with lust) ONE TOWARD ANOTHER; MEN (COMMITTED INDECENT ACTS WITH OTHER MEN-NIV), AND RECEIVING IN THEMSELVES (THE DUE PENALTY FOR THEIR PERVERSION-NIV). AND EVEN AS THEY DID NOT (THINK IT WORTHWHILE) TO RETAIN (THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD), GOD GAVE THEM OVER TO A REPROBATE (or depraved) MIND, TO DO (WHAT OUGHT NOT TO BE DONE-NIV); BEING FILLED WITH ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS (or every kind of wickedness), FORNICATION, WICKEDNESS, COVETOUSNESS, MALICIOUSNESS; FULL OF ENVY, MURDER, DEBATE, DECEIT, MALIGNITY; WHISPERERS (or gossips),
    30-BACKBITERS (or slanderers), HATERS OF GOD, DESPITEFUL, PROUD (or arrogant), BOASTERS, (THEY INVENT WAYS OF DOING EVIL-NIV), (THEY DISOBEY THEIR PARENTS-NIV), WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING (or senseless), COVENANTBREAKERS (or faithless), WITHOUT NATURAL AFFECTION (or homosexual), IMPLACABLE (or heartless), UNMERCIFUL (or ruthless): WHO KNOWING THE JUDGMENT OF GOD (or although they know God’s righteous decree-NIV), THAT THEY WHICH COMMIT SUCH THINGS ARE WORTHY OF (or deserve) DEATH, (THEY NOT ONLY CONTINUE TO DO THESE THINGS BUT ALSO-NIV) HAVE PLEASURE IN THEM (or also approve of those who practice-NIV) THEM.

    God’s Word clearly and unmistakably states in 1 Cor chapter 6-NEITHER…ADULTERERS,…NOR HOMOSEXUAL OFFENDERS…SHALL INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD. It is God’s Word that shall judge people in the last day. It is these very words that shall judge many in the last day. People can twist God’s Word and say it does not mean what it says, but that changes nothing. Unrepentant adulterers and homosexuals will perish.
    1 Cor 6:9,10-KNOW YE NOT THAT THE UNRIGHTEOUS (or wicked) SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD? BE NOT DECEIVED: NEITHER FORNICATORS (or the sexually immoral), NOR IDOLATERS, NOR ADULTERERS, NOR EFFEMINATE (or male prostitutes), NOR (HOMOSEXUAL OFFENDERS -NIV), NOR THIEVES, NOR COVETOUS (or greedy), NOR DRUNKARDS, NOR REVILERS or slanderers), NOR EXTORTIONERS (or swindlers), SHALL INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

    God destroyed Sodom and the cities of the plain for wickedness and homosexuality. The message is clear—don't do it.
    Gen 19:4-17, 24-26-BEFORE THEY HAD GONE TO BED, ALL THE MEN FROM EVERY PART OF THE CITY OF SODOM—BOTH YOUNG AND OLD—SURROUNDED THE HOUSE. THEY CALLED TO LOT, "WHERE ARE THE MEN WHO CAME TO YOU TONIGHT? BRING THEM OUT TO US SO THAT WE CAN HAVE SEX WITH THEM." These were homosexual men. LOT WENT OUTSIDE TO MEET THEM AND SHUT THE DOOR BEHIND HIM AND SAID, "NO, MY FRIENDS. DON'T DO THIS WICKED THING (NIV). Lot clearly shows homosexuality is a wicked thing. BEHOLD NOW, I HAVE TWO DAUGHTERS WHICH HAVE NOT KNOWN MAN; LET ME, I PRAY YOU, BRING THEM OUT UNTO YOU, AND DO YE TO THEM AS IS GOOD IN YOUR EYES: ONLY UNTO THESE MEN DO NOTHING; FOR THEREFORE CAME THEY UNDER THE SHADOW OF MY ROOF. LOOK, I HAVE TWO DAUGHTERS WHO HAVE NEVER SLEPT WITH A MAN. LET ME BRING THEM OUT TO YOU, AND YOU CAN DO WHAT YOU LIKE WITH THEM. BUT DON'T DO ANYTHING TO THESE MEN, FOR THEY HAVE COME UNDER THE PROTECTION OF MY ROOF." "GET OUT OF OUR WAY," THEY REPLIED. AND THEY SAID, "THIS FELLOW CAME HERE AS AN ALIEN, AND NOW HE WANTS TO PLAY THE JUDGE! WE'LL TREAT YOU WORSE THAN THEM." THEY KEPT BRINGING PRESSURE ON LOT AND MOVED FORWARD TO BREAK DOWN THE DOOR. These homosexual men did not want women.
    10-BUT THE MEN INSIDE REACHED OUT AND PULLED LOT BACK INTO THE HOUSE AND SHUT THE DOOR. THEN THEY STRUCK THE MEN WHO WERE AT THE DOOR OF THE HOUSE, YOUNG AND OLD, WITH BLINDNESS SO THAT THEY COULD NOT FIND THE DOOR. THE TWO MEN SAID TO LOT, "DO YOU HAVE ANYONE ELSE HERE—SONS-IN-LAW, SONS OR DAUGHTERS, OR ANYONE ELSE IN THE CITY WHO BELONGS TO YOU? GET THEM OUT OF HERE, BECAUSE WE ARE GOING TO DESTROY THIS PLACE. THE OUTCRY TO THE LORD AGAINST ITS PEOPLE IS SO GREAT THAT HE HAS SENT US TO DESTROY IT." SO LOT WENT OUT AND SPOKE TO HIS SONS-IN-LAW, WHO WERE PLEDGED TO MARRY HIS DAUGHTERS. HE SAID, "HURRY AND GET OUT OF THIS PLACE, BECAUSE THE LORD IS ABOUT TO DESTROY THE CITY!" BUT HIS SONS-IN-LAW THOUGHT HE WAS JOKING.
    15-WITH THE COMING OF DAWN, THE ANGELS URGED LOT, SAYING, "HURRY! TAKE YOUR WIFE AND YOUR TWO DAUGHTERS WHO ARE HERE, OR YOU WILL BE SWEPT AWAY WHEN THE CITY IS PUNISHED." Clearly, homosexuality is such a great sin in the eyes of God that He determined to punish and destroy the entire city. WHEN HE HESITATED, THE MEN GRASPED HIS HAND AND THE HANDS OF HIS WIFE AND OF HIS TWO DAUGHTERS AND LED THEM SAFELY OUT OF THE CITY, FOR THE LORD WAS MERCIFUL TO THEM. AS SOON AS THEY HAD BROUGHT THEM OUT, ONE OF THEM SAID, "FLEE FOR YOUR LIVES! DON'T LOOK BACK, AND DON'T STOP ANYWHERE IN THE PLAIN! FLEE TO THE MOUNTAINS OR YOU WILL BE SWEPT AWAY!"
    24-THEN THE LORD RAINED DOWN BURNING SULFUR ON SODOM AND GOMORRAH—FROM THE LORD OUT OF THE HEAVENS. THUS HE OVERTHREW THOSE CITIES AND THE ENTIRE PLAIN, INCLUDING ALL THOSE LIVING IN THE CITIES—AND ALSO THE VEGETATION IN THE LAND. Such is the judgment of the Lord on wickedness and homosexuality. BUT LOT'S WIFE LOOKED BACK, AND SHE BECAME A PILLAR OF SALT (NIV).

    1 Ki 14:24-AND THERE WERE ALSO SODOMITES IN THE LAND: AND THEY DID ACCORDING TO ALL THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE NATIONS WHICH THE LORD CAST OUT BEFORE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL.

    Note: May the reader be informed that we do not hate homosexuals, neither do we in any way support or advocate violence against them.  The purpose of addressing this issue is to inform the reader that according to the Bible (which is the holy Word of God and the final Authority) homosexuality is sin.  It is not an acceptable, alternative lifestyle as is being promoted in this generation.  In recent years, a number of homosexuals have come to realize this and have turned from their sins, repented of their old ways, having received the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and are now serving God in truth.  Some even have ministries that reach out to homosexuals.  If you are involved in the sin of homosexuality and want out, there is hope for you through Jesus Christ.  However, you must completely forsake this practice and humble yourself before God in truth.

16-SEX WITH ANIMALS: GOD’S SENTENCE IS DEATH

    Lev 20:15-16-"'IF A MAN HAS SEXUAL RELATIONS WITH AN ANIMAL, HE MUST BE PUT TO DEATH, AND YOU MUST KILL THE ANIMAL. "'IF A WOMAN APPROACHES AN ANIMAL TO HAVE SEXUAL RELATIONS WITH IT, KILL BOTH THE WOMAN AND THE ANIMAL. THEY MUST BE PUT TO DEATH; THEIR BLOOD WILL BE ON THEIR OWN HEADS (NIV).  Click here to go to top of page.

17-WHORES OR SODOMITES

    Deut 23:17-THERE SHALL BE NO WHORE OF THE DAUGHTERS OF ISRAEL, NOR A SODOMITE OF THE SONS OF ISRAEL.

18-YOU SHALL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS

    Mt 7:16-YE SHALL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS.
    Mt 7:20-WHEREFORE BY THEIR FRUITS YE SHALL KNOW THEM. Click here to go to top of page.

19-THE NATURAL MAN CANNOT UNDERSTAND THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT

   1 Cor 2:14-BUT THE NATURAL MAN (or man without the Spirit) RECEIVETH NOT THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD: FOR THEY ARE FOOLISHNESS UNTO HIM: (HE CANNOT UNDERSTAND THEM, BECAUSE THEY ARE SPIRITUALLY DISCERNED-NIV).

    1 Jn 2:11-HE…KNOWETH NOT WHITHER HE GOETH, BECAUSE THAT DARKNESS HATH BLINDED HIS EYES.
    Mt 6:23-IF THEREFORE THE LIGHT THAT IS IN THEE BE DARKNESS, HOW GREAT IS THAT DARKNESS! If a person believes he is going to heaven or believes he is saved, yet God’s Word clearly shows that he is not saved—the darkness or deception in that person’s heart is very, very great.

20-WILL THESE INCREASE IN THE FUTURE?

    As birth pangs of a woman, these things will increase during these latter days. During the Tribulation, they will continue to increase until finally the King of kings returns at Armageddon. In that day, this wickedness will end as few will be left alive on planet earth.

21-THE MESSAGE IS CLEAR—FLEE FROM THESE

    The message is clear. Flee from fornication. Flee from adultery. Flee from homosexuality. Flee from harlots. Flee from pornography. These all are pathways to hell. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.  EVERYONE WHO CONFESSES THE NAME OF THE LORD MUST TURN AWAY FROM WICKEDNESS-2 Tim 2:19 NIV.   Because, as it is written, WITHOUT HOLINESS, NO ONE WILL SEE THE LORD-Heb 12:14 NIV. Click here to go to top of page.

22-SEX WITHIN MARRIAGE

     Regarding sex within marriage, the Bible is very clear. Heb 13:4-Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
