Life on a Small Pecan Farm & the Recognition of God in All of It.
SEXUAL IMMORALITY IN THE CHURCH BY STEVE FINNELLSexual immorality in the church, is it God's will? Some believers in Christ think God looks favorably on congregations that welcome Christians into the fellowship who are actively involved in sexually immoral practices.Is tolerating Christians who are unrepentant homosexuals, heterosexual unmarried couples who are living together, child predators, those who practice bestiality, or other forms of sexual impurity, pleasing to God?1 Corinthians 5:1-2 It is actually reported that there is immorality among you, and immorality of such a kind as does not exist even among the Gentiles, that someone has his father's wife. 2 You have become arrogant and have not mourned instead, so that the one who had done this deed would be removed from your midst.Why are so many churches proud of their tolerance of sexual immorality?1 Corinthians 5:9-12 I wrote you in my letter not to associate with immoral people; 10 I did not mean at all with the immoral people of this world, or with the covetous and swindlers, or with idolaters, for then you would have to go out of the world. 11 But actually, I wrote to you not to associate with any so-called brother if he is an immoral person, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler---not even to eat with such a one. 12 For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Do you not judge those who are within the church?That is correct, Christians are to make certain judgments.1 Corinthians 5:13 But those who are outside, God judges. REMOVE THE WICKED MAN FROM AMONG YOURSELVES.The apostle Paul says remove the immoral man from the church. Christian leaders say just love him until he repents.1 Thessalonians 4:3 For this is the will of God, your sanctification, that is, that you abstain from sexual immorality;In the contemporary church abstain from sexual immorality is interpreted to mean; abstain, if it is convenient and does cause not cause any finical or mental anxiety.1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, not the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.The Scriptures tell us loud and clear that Christians who are unrepentant in their sexual immorality will not inherit the kingdom of God. Yet many congregations say we love you too much to ask you to repent. We would rather see you go to hell than to exercise church discipline.Revelation 21:8 ....immoral person...their part will be in the lake that burns with fir and brimstone, which is the second death.Why churches think that accepting unrepentant sexually immoral Christians into the fellowship of the Lord's church is an act of love is beyond my comprehension.GOD SAYS THAT UNREPENTANT SEXUALLY IMMORAL CHRISTIANS WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD! THE CONTEMPORARY CHURCH TELLS THEM WE CANNOT JUDGE YOU, ALL WE CAN DO IS LOVE YOU! YOU ARE INVITED TO FOLLOW MY BLOG. http://steve-finnell.blogspot.com
