Jesus replied, “Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?” Then he looked at those around him and said, “Look, these are my mother and brothers. Anyone who does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.”
Mark 3: 33-35
I believe the most damaging component of sex outside of the commitment of a heterosexual marriage is the vulnerability of an innocent, unborn child, and removal of the emotional and physical shield protecting the man and woman. It opens the door for a host of obstacles and struggles that many find insurmountable and the consequences are far reaching into the lives of many, turning families upside down.
1 Corinthians 6: 12-13 / 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8
Just as a baby within the womb may be in the wrong position, the makings for a painful and difficult birth (posterior/breech), God personally turns the life completely around and delivers through true repentance and faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.
“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, or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people–none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.”
1 Corinthians 6: 9-11
”If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”
1 John 1:9
“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
Jesus said, “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.”
