Sexual Behavior – Forbidden - And The Word Of God:
Exodus 20:14 NLT
“You must not commit adultery.
Leviticus 18:22-24 NLT (Verses 1-30)
22 “Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin.
23 “A man must not defile himself by having sex with an animal. And a woman must not offer herself to a male animal to have intercourse with it. This is a perverse act.
24 “Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, for the people I am driving out before you have defiled themselves in all these ways.
Leviticus 20:13 NLT
“If a man practices homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman, both men have committed a detestable act..."
Proverbs 5:20-23 NLT
20 Why be captivated, my son, by an immoral woman, or fondle the breasts of a promiscuous woman?
21 For The Lord sees clearly what a man does, examining every path he takes.
22 An evil man is held captive by his own sins; they are ropes that catch and hold him.
23 He will die for lack of self-control; he will be lost because of his great foolishness.
Proverbs 6:20-29,32,33 NLT
20 My son, obey your father’s commands, and don’t neglect your mother’s instruction.
21 Keep their words always in your heart. Tie them around your neck.
22 When you walk, their counsel will lead you. When you sleep, they will protect you When you wake up, they will advise you.
23 For their command is a lamp and their instruction a light; their corrective discipline is the way to Life.
24 It will keep you from the immoral woman, from the smooth tongue of a promiscuous woman.
25 Don’t lust for her beauty. Don’t let her coy glances seduce you.
26 For a prostitute will bring you to poverty, but sleeping with another man’s wife will cost you your life.
27 Can a man scoop a flame into his lap and not have his clothes catch on fire?
28 Can he walk on hot coals and not blister his feet?
29 So it is with the man who sleeps with another man’s wife. He who embraces her will not go unpunished.
32 But the man who commits adultery is an utter fool, for he destroys himself.
33 He will be wounded and disgraced. His shame will never be erased.
Jeremiah 17:9,10 NLT
9 “The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is?
10 But I, The Lord, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve.”
Malachi 2:15,16 NLT
15 Didn’t The Lord make you one with your wife? In body and spirit you are His. And what does He want? Godly children from your union. So guard your heart; remain loyal to the wife of your youth.
16 “For I hate divorce!” says The Lord, The God Of Israel. “To divorce your wife is to overwhelm her with cruelty,” says The Lord Of Heaven’s Armies. “So guard your heart; do not be unfaithful to your wife.”
Matthew 5:27,28 NLT
27 “You have heard the commandment that says, ‘You must not commit adultery.’
28 But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
Matthew 19:9 NLT
And I tell you this, whoever divorces his wife and marries someone else commits adultery—unless his wife has been unfaithful.”
Romans 1:18,21,26-28 NLT
18 But God shows His anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress The Truth by their wickedness.
21 Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship Him as God or even give Him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused.
26 That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other.
27 And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.
28 Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, He abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done.
I Corinthians 6:9-13,18,19 NLT
9 Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality,
10 or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people—none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God.
11 Some of you were once like that. But you were cleansed; you were made holy; you were made right with God by calling on the name of The Lord Jesus Christ and by
The Spirit of our God.
12 You say, “I am allowed to do anything”—but not everything is good for you. And even though “I am allowed to do anything,” I must not become a slave to anything.
13 You say, “Food was made for the stomach, and the stomach for food.” (This is true, though someday God will do away with both of them.) But you can’t say that our bodies were made for sexual immorality. They were made for The Lord, and The Lord cares about our bodies.
18 Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body.
19 Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of The Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself,
Ephesians 5:3 NLT
Let there be no sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among you. Such sins have no place among God’s people.
Colossians 3:5 NLT
So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. Don’t be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world.
I Thessalonians 4:1-5,7 NLT
1 Finally, dear brothers and sisters, we urge you in the name of The Lord Jesus to live in a way that pleases God, as we have taught you. You live this way already, and we encourage you to do so even more.
2 For you remember what we taught you by the authority of The Lord Jesus.
3 God’s will is for you to be holy, so stay away from all sexual sin.
4 Then each of you will control his own body and live in holiness and honor—
5 not in lustful passion like the pagans who do not know God and His ways.
7 God has called us to live holy lives, not impure lives.
I Timothy 1:9-11 NLT
9 For the law was not intended for people who do what is right. It is for people who are lawless and rebellious, who are ungodly and sinful, who consider nothing sacred and defile what is holy, who kill their father or mother or commit other murders.
10 The law is for people who are sexually immoral, or who practice homosexuality, or are slave traders, liars, promise breakers, or who do anything else that contradicts the wholesome teaching
11 that comes from the glorious Good News entrusted to me by our blessed God.
Hebrew 13:4 NLT
Give honor to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage. God will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery.
James 1:14,15 NLT
14 Temptation comes from our own desires, which entice us and drag us away.
15 These desires give birth to sinful actions. And when sin is allowed to grow, it gives birth to death.
I Peter 2:11 NLT
Dear friends, I warn you as “temporary residents and foreigners” to keep away from worldly desires that wage war against your very souls.
II Peter 2:9,10,14 NLT
9 So you see, The Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their trials, even while keeping the wicked under punishment until the day of final judgment.
10 He is especially hard on those who follow their own twisted sexual desire, and who despise authority.
14 They commit adultery with their eyes, and their desire for sin is never satisfied. They lure unstable people into sin, and they are well trained in greed. They live under God’s curse.
Jude 1:7 NLT
And don’t forget Sodom and Gomorrah and their neighboring towns, which were filled with immorality and every kind of sexual perversion. Those cities were destroyed by fire and serve as a warning of the eternal fire of God’s judgment.
Salvation, Through Repentance, And Confession:
I John 1:9 NLT
But if we confess our sins to Him, He is Faithful and Just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.
II Corinthians 5:21 NLT
For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.
Galatians 5:16 NLT
So I say, let The Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves.
II Timothy 2:22 NLT
Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on The Lord with pure hearts.
Psalm 37:4,5 NLT
4 Take delight in The Lord, and He will give you your heart’s desires.
5 Commit everything you do to The Lord. Trust Him, and He will help you.
Psalm 91:1-3 NLT
1 Those who live in the shelter of The Most High will find rest in the shadow of
2 This I declare about The Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I trust Him.
3 For He will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease.
