Bible verses sexual immorality:what does the bible say about sexual immorality

Immorality is evil, sinful, or otherwise incorrect behavior. … Since morality refers to things that are right, immorality

has to do with things that are wrong such as stealing, lying, and murdering. This is a tricky word, because people have their own idea of what’s immoral.

1 Corinthians 6:18

“Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually,
sins against their own body.”

What does God mean here. As you will realize as it says we commit all our sins outside the body, be it stealing, murder, assaulting others. But sexual immorality is against your own body as God clearly states that your body is the “Temple of God” Therefore, you are prohibited from joining your body with a prostitute.

1 Corinthians 6:15

” Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never ! “

It is important to realize that whenever one has sex outside marriage, it will be considered sin. It does not have to be only with a prostitute but with any woman or girl.

Unfortunately, you hear of stories of rape daily on TV. This so sad and I do not believe whoever doing these acts realize the gravity of it. In other words, he is sinning against his own body.

One must understand, all Christians are united in one body as illustrated in the Scripture above. We, Christians are united in one body, and Christ is the Head of it.

This is why when one Christian is undergoing hardships, the others feel for him or her and help them. If one is having difficulties others hurt and suffer, emotionally.

Overseas, many extreme groups target innocent Christians, torture them, murder them. This is to be expected. But we Christians are of one body united, we feel the pain.


Today many are addicted to pornography. Pornographic magazines are freely available. And with easy access to children at convenience stores.

There are pornographic outlets where for a few bucks you can watch pornographic movies

Pornography promotes violence against women.This is a fact. Most of sex videos contain material showing bondage, torture and even sodomy.

This is a sad situation.Despite restrictions some of these videos are illegally sold over the internet.

It is freely available on the internet. In smart phones, laptops and tablets.

Many have got addicted to them and waste thousands of dollars which could be used for other useful things. However, even though you have free access to them, it is in your control whether to use them or not.

You need to pray when tempted. God says that you will not be tempted beyond what you can control. Therefore, you have no excuse to keep at it.

1 Corinthians 6:16

” Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.”

Many use prostitutes to fulfill their sexual desires. And some while married. This has resulted in many getting social deceases like Gonorrhea, syphilis and HIV AIDS.

Why knowing very well that you could get a social decease and still go to a prostitute. And take risks. No way.

The answer is marriage. Jesus said while it is good to serve the Lord unmarried, that it is better to marry rather than be “engulfed” with sexual desires that you can not control.

As is required all children, once they grow up, must leave their parents and get married and live separately. This was created by our God since the inception of the creation.

And also, he said, when you unite your bodies, the two will become one flesh. In other words, when the uniting of bodies will result in a child, which is the result of this unity.

The rapist, who sodomize, rapes innocent girls, children will have no mercy from God. Its is a tragedy that all over the world there is so much of child pornography, These people are of warped mind. Innocent toddlers are among the victims. Even animals protect their new born babies and ensure nobody comes near them.

The rapists are created mostly, due to incidents that happened during their childhood. They see something that happened between the parents. Someone in the family getting violently raped. The hatred towards society takes place in his heart. So himself resorts to rape.

Sometimes, parents are being careless about looking after kids. They even sometimes leave kids in cars in he hot sun resulting in tragedies. No, no these things must never happen. Parents need to take responsibility for their kids twenty-four hours a day.

I remember how my parents kept a close watch on us till we grew up. They made sure that they know where we are throughout the day. It is the sacred duty of parents.

There are many kids roaming the big malls today. Most of them are runaways, and no place to live. They end up living with pimps, who use them for prostitution.

Ephesians 5:3

” 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 people.”

God wants us to be hundred percent pure. I know it is difficult, but as the word “Christian” means, which is Christ like, you must try to imitate him. This is your duty. No excuses. It says “not even a hint of sexual immorality”

It shows the seriousness of it. Why, because it is improper.
Unfortunately, in the past some pastors even evangelists were exposed of sexual immorality. This has affected Christianity negatively.

As a Christian one must strive to be pure, ensure that you do not engage in sexually immoral acts. And these include greed as well.

Hebrews 13:4

” Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.”

Today, many married couples are having affairs. At work, Gym, at home wherever. Which, in breakup of many marriages. Main reason being lust of the flesh.

Why give in to the lust of flesh. One must always pray when tempted. It says God will always provide you with a way to get out of it when tempted.

He will not let anybody tempt you so much that you would not be able to bare it. No, no way. This is why there is no excuse for adulterers.

Why are there so many divorces in America, it is because of the same reasons mentioned above.
There is no reason to divorce because of a minor flaw in your spouse. It says “do not separate what God has joined together”

Today, even for a small reason, people divorce and divorce rate in America is at an all time high. One must always seek counseling before arriving at decision to divorce.

Many couples have extra marital affairs. They sin against the body of Christ. knowingly or unwillingly. This happens in the workplace, Gym or even in the workplace.

Some times in the end, these affairs have pretty bad consequences.Assaults and even murder.

It is not healthy for children. They suffer more than anyone. Family unity is of utmost importance. Children of divorced couples are feel the effect of the divorce. They tend to perform poor at school, in sports and most likely to get involved in a fight and could be aggressive.

1 Corinthians 6:9

” do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men “

What a tragedy. If you are sexually immoral, you will not enter the kingdom of God, or Heaven. This is a serious statement for all. The last part of the scripture should be taken seriously by the modern day society,

“nor men who have sex with men” this should be taken seriously. Word of god is flawless. God created Eve for Adam with a purpose. While we must not isolate men and women who has different views, we need to point out the truth.

We as followers of Christ accept them with open arms even if they are wrong. Jesus said love your neighbor as yourself, and love your enemies. On the right of Jesus on the cross was murderer and Jesus told him that he ill be “in paradise”

Here, since this murderer, accepted Jesus as his lord before his death, he received permission to enter Heaven. We must pray for people who disagree with the word of God.

Jesus is love. He forgave prostitutes, but did not approve what they did. He showed compassion and love. These are two basic principles of Christianity, Everything is based on “Love”

1 John 4:16

” And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.”

The reason why there are many laws on sexual immorality is because of God’s love for us. He created these laws as outlined in the bible is for us to lead an exemplary life.

Jesus said “you are the salt of the earth” meaning all Christians. And it is your duty live as a Christian, which means “Christ like”.


There is no place in the Christian world for the sexually immoral person. He will not enter heaven or the kingdom of God. We are members of Christ. And Christians are connected to each other. The head is Christ. So why join your body with a prostitute, and with that you are uniting her and yourself with Christ. This is not acceptable.

  1. God is light, God is love and God is also forgiving knowing of our human nature, God is ever so merciful. I practice a christian faith and I sometimes fall short because I know I am not perfect.

    Reading the word and knowing the message has kept me away from a lot of the world’s temptations and I am so thankful. We do suffer from instant gratification, and craving sex on a daily but t all about what you feed your soul and sadly our media doesn’t help.

    I will continue to keep the faith and pray for others. Keeping spreading the gospel.
