Zero out of Six

I shared a picture on Facebook. This one. 317806956_508534574584912_2745246140430129741_n I shared it because such clichés may sound good to the people of this time but they are foolish and dangerous. 

1 Listen to your heart. 
Absolutely not! 


3 Trust your gut.
Are you kidding?!

Proverbs 3:5  “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.”  King James Version (KJV)

4 feel good about who you are. 
Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

5 Happiness is what matters
Really?  Let’s see what GOD says.

Leviticus 20:7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the LORD your God.

1 Peter 1:15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;

1 Peter 1:16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

Romans 3:10 “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:” King James Version (KJV)

Psalms 53:3 “Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.” King James Version (KJV)

As you can see those clichés are powerless to transform a single soul. BUT GOD!

HE can make YOU new. HE can make YOU clean. HE can make YOU holy and by the way, the way to be HAPPY (as everyone wants) only happens when we are HOLY in position with GOD and learning by practice to live HOLY.  It’s a life-long process.  Yet more than a process, it’s an adventure — like none other!

Acts of sexual immorality

Honestly, I’d like to skip over this one, but — well, that will not do.

So what is sexual immorality? Sexual immorality per se is not given in Webster’s 1828 edition. However, immorality is defined:

IMMORAL’ITY, noun Any act or practice which contravenes the divine commands (emphasis mine) or the social duties. Injustice, dishonesty, fraud, slander, profaneness, gaming, intemperance, lewdness, are immoralities. All crimes are immoralities; but crime expresses more than immorality  source

Like it or not sexual intimacy beyond what is prescribed in the Holy Scriptures is sexual immorality.

1 Corinthians 7:2 (KJV) Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. source

And for those married folks:

Hebrews 13:4  (KJV)4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge. source   This just might be better than we have yet believed.

Answering further is Leviticus 18 If you are not familiar with this chapter of Holy Writ, I hope you will use the link provided; there you will find three translations to choose from and there you will read that GOD has covered it all.

The boundaries of sexual morality are narrow, extremely narrow, for the purpose of broadening the pleasure of GOD’s Children beyond mere human delight and satisfaction.

Mark 7: 20 And He said, “Whatever comes from [the heart of] a man, that is what defiles and dishonors him. 21 For from within, [that is] out the heart of men, come base and malevolent thoughts and schemes, acts of sexual immorality, thefts, murders, adulteries, 22 acts of greed and covetousness, wickedness, deceit, unrestrained conduct, envy and jealousy, slander and profanity, arrogance and self-righteousness and foolishness (poor judgment). 23 All these evil things [schemes and desires] come from within and defile and dishonor the man. source
