In this series we began an exploration
of the works of the flesh as listed in Galatians 4 with the first work of the
Adultery is sexual relations by
married people with someone other than one’s spouse. We saw that adultery has
become a very common and destructive sin. It contributes yearly to millions
of divorces and to a great number of shattered families.
We saw that Satan tries very hard to
get married Christians to commit adultery and that, on some occasions, he has
We looked at how Satan operates. We
saw that the steps to adultery are gradual and that unless they are dealt
with early enough, resisting the actual adultery will become very hard or
next to impossible.
We also saw that adultery can be
mental; that it can be simply lust; that adultery can be emotional as well,
whereby a married person has an emotional adulterous relationship with
another person which doesn’t necessarily lead to physical adultery. We then covered some principles that can
help us fight adultery.
In this section, we will
deal with the next work of the flesh: “Fornication.”
The Greek word used by Paul for
fornication is “Porneia.” It is the word we get the
word pornographic from. It is a generic term
meaning “sexual immorality” in general. It goes above and beyond adultery. It
refers to various types of sexual immorality, including sexual relations
outside of marriage such as homosexuality, incest, pornography, perverted
forms of sex, etc.
F. Wilbur Gingrich
defines “Porneia” as "unchastity,
prostitution, fornication, of every kind of unlawful sexual
John Groves defines “Porneia” as "fornication, adultery, incest,
whoredom, all kinds of lewdness."[v]
The word “Porneia,” therefore, includes fornication, adultery,
incest, all kinds of lewdness, and every kind of unlawful sexual intercourse.
God forbad sexual
immorality from the start. Unlike the other Gods of the past, who in many
cases were themselves sexually immoral, the true God demanded sexual purity.
He, the maker of the human body and the human mind, knew the tragic
consequences of sexual sins. Thus, in His Holy Law, God specifically
mentioned which sexual sins His Holy people should evade.
As we well know, Adultery was included
in the Ten Commandments. Some people would say, “Why hasn’t God included the
other sexual sins in the Ten Commandments? Was it because they are not as
serious?” The answer is: He has. They are indirectly included in the
last Commandment. “Thou shalt not lust.” Before
sexual sins take place, one must lust. By forbidding lust He forbad all the
other sexual sins as well. Nonetheless, lest there be any misunderstanding,
He specifically mentioned the other sexual sins in the Book of the Law.
Let’s look, first of all, at God’s
attitude towards pre-marital sex, as stated in the book of the law.
If a man takes a wife and, after sleeping with her, dislikes her 14 and slanders her and gives her a bad
name, saying, “I married this woman, but when I approached her, I did not
find proof of her virginity,” 15 then the
young woman’s father and mother shall bring to the town elders at the gate
proof that she was a virgin. 16 Her father
will say to the elders, “I gave my daughter in marriage to this man, but he
dislikes her. 17 Now he has slandered her
and said, ‘I did not find your daughter to be a virgin.’ But here is the
proof of my daughter’s virginity.” Then her parents shall display the cloth
before the elders of the town, 18 and the
elders shall take the man and punish him. 19 They
shall fine him a hundred shekels[a] of silver and give them to the young
woman’s father, because this man has given an Israelite virgin a bad name.
She shall continue to be his wife; he must not divorce her as long as he
If, however, the charge is true and no proof of the young woman’s
virginity can be found, 21 she
shall be brought to the door of her father’s house and there the men of her
town shall stone her to death. She has done an outrageous thing in Israel by
being promiscuous while still in her father’s house. You must purge the evil
from among you.
If a man is found sleeping with another man’s wife, both the man who
slept with her and the woman must die. You must purge the evil from Israel.
If a man happens to meet in a town a virgin pledged to be married and
he sleeps with her, 24 you
shall take both of them to the gate of that town and stone them to death—the
young woman because she was in a town and did not scream for help, and the
man because he violated another man’s wife. You must purge the evil from
among you.(Deuteronomy 22:13-24).
WHY GOD FORBIDS SEXUAL
God forbids pre-marital sex because it
is harmful physically, psychologically, and socially.
Physically, because it is the medium
through which horrendous sexually transmitted diseases find their way into
the human body.
Psychologically, because it is the
sure way to lower one’s self-esteem. It leads to a damaging sense of guilt,
and worse of all, it weakens the person’s character turning the person into
an untrustworthy human being. In fact, the person who is immoral before
marriage, unless converted, has a
great probability of being immoral after marriage as well.
It also leads to diminished respect
from the husband r wife, and from others who might find out. The word usually
spreads quickly that the person is easy and the person rarely knows what
rumors are being spread.
Many years ago a friend bragged to me
about the fact that his girl friend allowed him to commit fornication. Years
later, I saw him again and I asked him what happened to his relationship with
that girl. He told me he had to leave her, because
he found out she was playing behind his back with someone else.
A person who shows character and
resists temptation before marriage will tend to show character and resists
temptation after marriage. A seducer before marriage will tend to be a
seducer after marriage. One who chooses to have fun before marriage will tend
to have a similar attitude after marriage.
Yet, it needs to be pointed out that a
fornicator who realizes the seriousness of the sin and repents before God
deeply and sorrowfully can become an outstanding Christian who will fiercely
evade that kind of sin. The key is simply true, deep-felt repentance.
An example of this was a Christian
woman whom I met about forty years ago, who had been a streetwalker and later
repented and became an outstanding Christian. She had rejected her previous
lifestyle and was committed totally to God and His ways.
Nonetheless, we have seen cases of
people who committed fornication before marriage, who came in the church not
totally repentant and, because they took their conversion lightly, they
reverted to their former behavior. A person who had lax morals before conversion
has to stay close to God, so as to prevent former sinful habits from
I also mentioned that fornication can
also be harmful socially. Unwanted pregnancies tend to lead to one parent
families. One parent families have to be supported by society, which
increases the tax burden of honest hard-working people. One-parent families
have greater difficulty controlling children. Because of low income, such
families tend to live in poor areas where crime abounds. Also, because of
limited parental control, and because of the evil that surrounds them, as the
kids grow up, some will become criminals inflicting great harm on society.
Other problems are the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, increased use
of drugs, with the accompanying evils that follow such behaviors, etc.
The other sexual sin that God
condemned in the Book of the Law is homosexuality:
“There shall be no whore of the
daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel” (Deuteronomy 23:17 KJV).
“You will not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is
abomination.” (Lev. 18:22 KJV).
God from the start said
"No!" to homosexuality, without exception. He did not say,
“No, unless you have psychological problems.” He did not say, “No, unless you
tend to be somewhat effeminate.” He did not say, “No, unless you have same
sex attraction you cannot control.” He simply said “No!”
God said "No!" also to
another abominable act which tends to become common in societies that become
obsessed with sex: “Bestiality”.
shall not lie with any beast and defile yourself with it, neither shall any
woman give herself to a beast to lie with it: it is perversion.
Can bestiality be possible in our
society? Would people among us stoop to this level? There are now web sites
on the Internet dedicated to satisfying the distorted cravings of people who
are into bestiality. Some of you may have already received invitations to
visit such sites; rest assured, it will increase.
In the famed book, The Europeans, by Luigi Barzini, one reads that in one country in Europe
bestiality had become quite common right before World War 2. The consequences
on that nation were devastating.
The next sexual sin that was very
common in ancient societies was incest. The number of incest cases in society
today is scandalous and reeks in God’s nostrils, because it is unnatural, and
because the long-term consequences on children are psychologically
God deals with the variations of this
sin in depth, in Leviticus 20.
“‘If a man has sexual relations with his father’s
wife, he has dishonored his father. Both the man and the woman are to be put
to death; their blood will be on their own heads.
“‘If a man has sexual relations with
his daughter-in-law, both of them are to be put to death. What they have done
is a perversion; their blood will be on their own heads.
“‘If a man has sexual relations
with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is
detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own
“‘If a man marries both a woman
and her mother, it is wicked. Both he and they must be burned in the fire, so
that no wickedness will be among you.
“‘If a man has sexual relations
with an animal, he is to 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
are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.
“‘If a man marries his sister,
the daughter of either his father or his mother, and they have sexual
relations, it is a disgrace. They are to be publicly removed from their
people. He has dishonored his sister and will be held responsible.
“‘If a man has sexual relations
with a woman during her monthly period, he has exposed the source of her
flow, and she has also uncovered it. Both of them are to be cut off from
“‘Do not have sexual relations
with the sister of either your mother or your father, for that would dishonor
a close relative; both of you would be held responsible.
“‘If a man has sexual relations
with his aunt, he has dishonored his uncle. They will be held responsible;
they will die childless.
“‘If a man marries his brother’s wife,
it is an act of impurity; he has dishonored his brother. They will be
childless (Leviticus 20:11-21).
It is sobering to read in Leviticus 20
that God becomes particularly angry, when these sins abound in a
“You shall therefore keep all my statutes and all my
ordinances, and do them; that the land where I am bringing you to dwell may
not vomit you out. 23 And you shall not walk in the customs of the
nation which I am casting out before you; for they did all these things, and
therefore I abhorred them” (Leviticus 20:22-23).
Why did God want the Canaanites wiped
out? In large part because adultery, fornication, homosexuality, bestiality
and incest abounded -- and He finally said “Enough!”
These kinds of perversions abounded in
ancient lands and may have reached a climax in the societies Paul traveled
through; in the Greek world in particular and in the Roman world somewhat
less. Paul described this reality in the book of Romans.
For although they knew God, they neither glorified
him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their
foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they
became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of
the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds
and animals and reptiles.
Therefore God gave them over in
the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of
their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for
a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is
forever praised. Amen.
Because of this, God gave them
over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations
for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural
relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men
committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due
penalty for their error.
Furthermore, just as they did not
think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to
a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become
filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are
full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and
boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although
they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death,
they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who
practice them (Romans
The New Testament reveals God’s views
about sexual immorality clearly and they are perfectly similar to what he had
forbidden in the Old Testament.
“You say, “Food for the stomach and the stomach for
food, and God will destroy them both.” The body, however, is not meant for
sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.” (1 Corinthians
“But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of
any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God’s holy
How can we make sure that we do not
become sexually immoral? What follows are some principles which can be very
effective in escaping the sexual immorality trap.
1. Know that to
God sexual immorality of all kinds and forms is unacceptable and that like
adultery God will severely consequence sexually
immoral people who refuse to repent.
Have you been thinking all along that we have been defending ourselves
to you? We have been speaking in the sight of God as those in Christ; and
everything we do, dear friends, is for your strengthening. 20 For I am afraid that when I come I may
not find you as I want you to be, and you may not
find me as you want me to be. I fear that there may be discord, jealousy,
fits of rage, selfish ambition, slander, gossip, arrogance and disorder.
21 I am afraid that when I come again my God will
humble me before you, and I will be grieved over many who have sinned earlier
and have not repented of the impurity, sexual sin and debauchery in which
they have indulged. (2 Corinthians 12:19-21).
This is II Corinthians. In the first
epistle to the Corinthians, we read about the man who committed incest. In
the second we find that he repented. We also find that there is a strong
probability that sexual immorality in the church was still rampant and that
several were unrepentant, and thus the consequences may have been or would
have been drastic—thus the mourning. That is they might have died or might
have been afflicted by a serious punishment. In the first epistle, Paul
delivered the incestuous man to Satan for the destruction of the flesh. That
may have been the case with the others who were still unrepentant. That can
be the case with any of us today who refuse to repent: being delivered to Satan for the destruction of the flesh is terrifying
We must never forget
that we have been called to holiness not to impurity.
“For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that
ye should abstain from fornication” (I Thessalonians 4:3 KJV).
This is God’s aim for us. This is
God’s goal for us. This is what He
demands. He demands that we be holy even as He is holy. And to do so we must
abstain from all forms of sexual immorality, mental or physical.
3. We must never forget that the Holy Spirit that dwells in
us will not stay forever in an impure and unrepentant fornicator’s mind.
The Holy Spirit will not dwell in a
rebellious, immoral mind. Immoral thoughts, desires and actions cannot dwell
in the same location as the Holiest essence there is: the Holy Spirit.
“It is reported commonly that there is fornication
among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the
Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife. 19What? know ye not
that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which
ye have of God, and ye are not your own? (I Corinthians 6:18-19 KJV).
Of course this does not mean that the
Holy Spirit will leave because a person has been trapped by Satan. God will
try to convict the person and will attempt to bring the person back to
repentance. Yet a stubborn, self-willed mind who embraces sexual
immorality and refuses to repent can commit the unpardonable sin from which
there is no repentance.
4. Know that Satan’s
attempts at getting us to become sexually immoral through his society will
multiply, not diminish.
Society is sliding down very fast.
Homosexuality would have never received any limelight 15-20 years ago. In one
generation it has become not only acceptable, but in style. It is very
difficult to turn TV any day of the week and not see any mention of
homosexuals. Tributes are being paid to homosexuals and homosexuality,
without hesitation or shame. The queen of England has recently made available
her own palaces so that a famous English singer would be publicly united to
his homosexual partner with great pomp and circumstance.
The unthinkable, homosexual marriages, have now become legal in several countries. A
few years ago, the Supreme Court of Canada legalized the existence of
locations where people can publicly get involved in orgies. The rationale
used by the Court is that "it will not hurt society."
In our society, common-law living is
now for many a requirement before marriage, in spite of the fact that
undeniable research shows clearly that common-law relationships tend to be
more violent than married relationships, and that they breakup more
frequently than marriages, and that people who marry after living common law
have a greater probability of breaking up than people who never lived common
Satan will try to influence our
attitudes toward these sins by bringing to us seeming exceptions of
homosexual couples who seem to get along; or common-law couples that appear
to be happy.
These seeming exceptions are not the
rule. There are people who rob banks and don’t get caught and also seem to be
happy. Does that make robbing banks right? There
are people who say that they have been happier in their marriage ever since
they have been having a secret affair. In fact, they say that they have
become more loving toward their mates since their affair. Is,
therefore, having affairs the right thing to do?
The classic rationalization to excuse
sin has always been the exception to the rule. But exceptions do not make the
rule. God not human reasoning and
rationalizations determines right from wrong as he alone knows the true
immediate and long-term consequences to immoral actions.
Common-law living is not marriage. I
have heard a church person who should have known better in the past say that
it is. That is totally false. Man-Woman relationships are not
experimental. They are supposed to be life-long commitments, through good
times and bad times. Common-Law relationships are in most cases simply
selfish experiments to see if the other person will fulfill one’s needs. They
are not statements of love; they are essentially selfish and, thus, sinful.
People who live common law are
considered by God to be living in sin, and if they come among truly converted
Christians, they will be encouraged to marry before God and man, if they want
to stay in the fellowship.
Satan will try to get us desensitized
to sin through TV, our culture, our friends and family. Desensitization,
which works very slowly, can totally transform our attitudes and we won’t
even realize it.
Do we watch programs that have funny
homosexuals in it? Do we understand that that is a psychological technique
Satan uses to desensitize people to homosexuality, or any kind of sinful
behavior? Associate homosexual characters to laughter and you will create a
positive association in a person’s mind towards homosexuality. It is a
well-known psychological fact. It is a well-known psychological law: The Law
of Association. Satan knows that law better than anyone else and he has been
using it ever-more successfully the past few decades.
Satan is marching along in his devious
agenda and this world is welcoming his every move as “progress and
enlightenment.” The results will be tragic.
5. Our attitude toward
the degeneracy in society should be that of Lot.
if he condemned the cities of Sodom
and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is
going to happen to the ungodly; 7 and
if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the depraved
conduct of the lawless 8 (for that righteous
man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul
by the lawless deeds he saw and heard) (II Peter 2:6-7).
Are we tormented when we see heinous
sins bandied about on TV or in front of us? Have we forgotten how detestable
they are in God’s sight?
Do we get entertainment, and do we
think it is funny that men and women do indecent acts publicly?
Do we feel sick to our stomach when we
see lewd acts on TV or at the movies, or has that reaction vanished? If we
are not turned off and angered by these trends, Satan has succeeded in
desensitizing us. Soon the evil that surrounds us will no longer be evil, and
we’ll be in danger of being like the Corinthians who could have heinous sins
among them and be unperturbed.
6. Know that for every
second spent watching sensual images
on TV, magazines, or on the Internet, are adding seeds into our minds that
can grow into full-blown sin
The human mind is like a pot full of
very fertile soil. Whatever we plant in it will grow. If we plant holy seeds,
we will see grow holy thoughts and actions. These seeds can be planted
visually, through images, or the printed word. How many seeds have we been
planting lately? The seeds will grow into thoughts, and thoughts will
transform us: “As a man thinketh so is he” (Proverbs 23:7 KJV).
The thoughts we entertain determine who we are. And, finally, what
What kind of thoughts have we been
Is it possible to be at church looking
saintly and Christian and still be filled with unclean thoughts? Let’s see
what both Peter and Jude have to say about this subject.
But these people blaspheme in matters they do not
understand. They are like unreasoning animals, creatures of instinct, born
only to be caught and destroyed, and like animals they too will perish.
They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have
done. Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots
and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you. 14 With eyes full of adultery,
they never stop sinning; they seduce the unstable; they are experts in
greed—an accursed brood! 15 They have left
the straight way and wandered off to follow the way
of Balaam son of Bezer, who loved the wages of
wickedness. 16 But he was rebuked for his
wrongdoing by a donkey—an animal without speech—who spoke with a human voice
and restrained the prophet’s madness.
These people are springs without water and mists driven by
a storm. Blackest darkness is reserved for them (II Peter 2:12-17).
Jude essentially shares the same concerns.
Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you
about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to
contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people. 4 For certain individuals
whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly
slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our
God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign
Though you already know all this, I want to remind you that
the Lord at one time delivered his people out of Egypt, but later
destroyed those who did not believe. 6 And the angels who did not keep their positions of
authority but abandoned their proper dwelling—these he has kept in darkness,
bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day. 7 In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the
surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion.
They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.
In the very same way, on the strength of their dreams these
ungodly people pollute their own bodies, reject authority and heap abuse on
celestial beings (Jude 1:3-8).
Yes, it is possible for anyone to
appear saintly and yet be filled with lustful thoughts. Yes, we may have such
people in Christian churches.
Run for your life, before sexual immorality!
this point abundantly clear:
“Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits
are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body”
(I Corinthians 6:18).
How many times have ministers warned
our young and old of the dangers of sexual immorality? “Beware!” we warn; but
at times we’ve been ignored. How many times have young people laughed in
their minds at these old foggies preaching from the
pulpit who are out of touch with reality, who are no longer in or cool? How
many have lived to regret it?
One young woman once in a church
decided to experiment with pre-marital sex “once.” She did… and ended up with
incurable herpes. Another one developed AIDS.
Run from sexual immorality, run! Run
for your life! For this world is full
of attractive, seductive, smooth young men and women ready to share their
viruses with you. Some knowingly some unknowingly.
Every time you fall into the trap you
could be going to bed with millions of people, by simply getting involved
with one. The one person may have been involved with another who was involved
with five or six others, who were involved with several others, ad infinitum.
That one time you could be welcoming into your body a virus which may have
been passed along years back by a streetwalker in Brazil or Thailand or
somewhere in Europe or Africa.
You might inherit a virus which
mutated and found its way into someone hundreds or thousands of years ago,
which go back to the beginning of times and which have reproduced
countless times and have reaped havoc
in people’s bodies millions of times.
Run for your life, and don’t stop. And
don’t be fooled by the “safe sex” nonsense. Viruses have a way of finding
ways around barriers; barriers have a way of breaking and betraying, when
one least expects it.
And certainly don’t deceive yourself
into thinking that since it’s your life it should not be anyone else’s
business. This is the rationalization that many have used over the years to
excuse their sinful behavior with horrific consequences.
The following story is about a young
man who had grown up in a Christian home and who decided, once a student in
university, to enjoy a sensual life and have sex with women. This he did
uncaring of consequences and of God’s warning.
The young man finally regained his
senses, went back home, met a lovely church girl, got married and entered
what seemed to be an idyllic life. His life was soon enriched with beautiful
A few years later he started showing
worrisome symptoms. He went for a checkup and was told that he had AIDS. Not
long after he died and left behind his wife and children. But that was not
the end of the story.
Unfortunately, not long after, his
wife tested positive for HIV. She too was infected and was working her way
toward certain death, leaving children as orphans.
How many others had the man infected?
How many have died? How many wives and children has Satan destroyed through
that man and his irresponsibility?
Yes, our sins can affect others. It is
not just our lives that we destroy; we can destroy others as well.
8. Accept the Love of
your Father your Creator. Know that He loves you more than anyone else on
earth and that is why He says, “Flee!”
God knows what’s out there. He knows
what viruses will do to you physically. He knows what sexual immorality will
do to you psychologically. He knows what sexual immorality will do to a
society. He says to me and you, “flee!”
Yet people would rather hear the
warning from the experts, rather than God’s Word. Here is the warning of some
experts; perhaps the two greatest historians of our time: Will and Ariel Durant.
Will and Ariel Durant wrote a large
collection of volumes on the history of humanity. They have studied history
for most of their lives. Toward the end of their life they wrote a short, but
very powerful book titled, Lessons from
In it, they list of 13 fundamental
lessons they learned from their in-depth study of human history. One of the
lessons deals with sexual immorality.
A youth boiling with hormones will wonder why he
should not give full freedom to his sexual desires; and if he is unchecked by
custom, morals, or laws, he may ruin his life before he matures sufficiently
to understand that sex is a river of fire that must be banked and cooled by a
hundred restrains if it is not to consume in chaos both the individual and
God, our Father, knew this before Will
and Ariel Durant did and gave us a gift that will protect us physically and
mentally throughout your life.
Go to Him and seek His strength when
it’s tough to resist. Beg His for wisdom to know when danger is coming, so as
to evade it. Beg for the power of His Spirit when your flesh says “eat,”
though the food is poisonous. Being your Father, He will honor your request
and will give you the help you need.
This is how we can fulfill Paul’s
injunction found in Colossians.
“Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly
nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry” (Colossians 3:5).
Therefore, let’s fight and kill the
self-destructive desires that dwell in our flesh. Let’s fight a valiant
battle and let’s never give in!
fornication is a Work of the Flesh that Satan loves to use
to bring havoc in our and
other people’s lives. It is his diabolical weapon that
he uses to destroy millions of lives
yearly. God warns us to evade sexual
immorality, with all our might.
The benefits for doing so are peace of mind,
horrible and agonizing diseases and harmony with our Creator,and, finally, if we stay faithful to
God’s ways, eternal life.
