BIBLICAL FORNICATION BIBLE VERSES LESSON
WHAT IS FORNICATION IN THE BIBLE
Great to have you here again to share another slice of Daily Bread. Our
study today is about a very controversial topic ... Fornication.
Judging anyone about this matter is out of the question since every adult
that ever lived is guilty of it according to these words:
But I say unto you, That
whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery
with her already in his heart.
And respecting everyone's right not to be
judged, we as Christians are still obligated to warn our fellow Christians
when something puts their soul in danger. Double check with your heart
and ask yourself, What do I really believe? Is fornication right or is it wrong?
Is the act really worth my integrity in my Lord's eyes?
BIBLICAL FORNICATION BIBLE VERSES TRUTH
FORNICATION IN THE BIBLE MEANING
Okay, now let's
get that letter from Paul back out, and unroll the parchment out to Chapter
5 of 1 Corinthians and see what he has to tell us about this. Apparently
there was fornication going on in Corinth. Not only was it fornication, but
incest. It was known about publicly and
the circumstances were very shameful. This kind of thing wasn't known to
be a common occurrence among the Gentiles.
In his concern and bewilderment, Paul
can't believe that the Corinthians were "puffed up," about the incident
instead of mourning about it because in such circumstances, the punishment
would be excommunication.
What does this
mean, "puffed up?" Well, it could mean that they're boasting about it
(similar to today's world where adultery is promoted in all kinds of media),
or advertising it like scandals are usually gossiped about, or, it could
mean they're angry about it. In any case, they weren't mourning about it,
which was the response which Paul thought would be the proper one.
Before you read
the next verse, recall that Paul said in Chapter 2, Verse 15, He that is
spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
BIBLICAL FORNICATION BIBLE VERSES FACTS
FORNICATION IN THE BIBLE CONCERN
Though I wasn't there in the flesh, I am there in spirit
and I've made up my mind of how this matter should be handled ...
When you gather together, to deliver this person to Satan
for the destruction of the flesh
(this is another way of saying to excommunicate the person),
so that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
Your acceptance of this is not good.
Does this sound extreme to you? Look at it this way. As long as this
person is within the congregation, and the congregation is accepting his
behavior by not taking any action against him, the entire congregation is
brought down by it, because remember, we are one body. If the hand gets a
cut and has an infection the whole body suffers from it.
So would you have
God punish the whole lot? Of course not, so Paul is saying, separate the
offender, cast him out and then God can deal with him separately.
Incidentally, what happens when you're thrown out? You're away from God.
You're alone with the enemy.
BIBLICAL FORNICATION BIBLE VERSES RESEARCH
FORNICATION IN THE BIBLE WARNING
How much more efficiently can you show a person
that they need to get back on the right path? One bad apple spoils the whole
bunch. Paul relates this same thing using leaven as a good analogy for the
fornicator, or ... we may even use it for as an analogy for Sin.
Purge (cleanse) out therefore the old leaven (sin),
that you may be a new lump (pure), as you are unleavened.
For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed (put to death) for us:
Therefore let us celebrate the feast, not with old leaven,
neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness;
but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and TRUTH.
Paul then explains that in a
previous letter, he told them not to company with fornicators, or several
other kinds of evil doers of the world, but then explains, that one cannot
totally and completely avoid any kind of contact with them, since the world
is so full of them that one would have to leave the world. But now, Paul
says, I'm telling you not to associate with those who profess to be
Christians and practice these things.
BIBLICAL FORNICATION BIBLE VERSES CONCLUSION
FORNICATION IN THE BIBLE SUMMARY
Those who are
outside the Faith are not in our jurisdiction to judge. But aren't we
responsible for those within the church?
But them that are without (outside the Faith) God judges. So separate
yourselves from anyone who gives Christianity a bad name.
Paul has more to say about matters of immorality in the coming up
chapters so hurry back and join in for some eye opening study of this
important letter from Paul, right here at Daily Bread.
