Isaiah 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
Isaiah 55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Turns out God is right! You all knew that, right? God’s word says Adultery and Fornication is wrong. Just in case there are young minds out there I am not going to get graphic in word or images and make it simple. Fornication is sex before marriage. It is about touching people in a way that only a married couple should touch each other. Even kissing and making out is not for people who are not married. Even lusting after others is wrong too. Adultery is flirting with anyone or having sexual relations with anyone who is not your spouse. Even if the other person is separated or divorced, you are still committing adultery. It seems harsh if you haven’t been taught anything on the matter and live like the world does. It’s everywhere, on TV, in the movies, on the streets, in school, in college and everywhere you go. This culture of fornicating and committing adultery is wrong because God’s word says it is wrong. If God’s word says it is wrong, that is God telling you and warning you and teaching you. Don’t get angry and offensive and shove the truth saying, everyone is doing it, I will get married to this person, we love each other and what is wrong with love? Or maybe you are saying, there is nothing wrong with it because it is quite normal and even people at church do it. You know that is not a good enough reason to live like the world and do what everyone else is doing.
The number of Sexually Transmitted Diseases is very high. I will give you some facts that might surprise you. The information is from http://www.std-gov.org/
- 65 million of people living in the US with STD
- 15 million of new STD cases each year
- 2/3 of all STD’s occurs in people 25 yrs of age or younger
- one in four new STD cases occur in teenagers
- cervical cancer in women is linked to HPV
- doctors are required to report newly diagnosed STD cases of gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia andhepatitis B to state health departments and the CDC
- one in four Americans have genital herpes, 80% of those with herpes are unaware they have it
- at least one in four Americans will contract an STD at some point in their lives
- 15% of all infertile American women are infertile because of tubal damage caused by untreated STD
- 12% of all infertile American men are infertile because of inflammation of the testicles and sterility caused by untreated STD
Do you think that if a Christian man and woman who are virgins who get married and do not commit adultery, get a divorce and get involved with others and do not live like the world will have statistics like this? No way. They will have zero unless something happens like if one were to get raped or the Red Cross gives them tainted blood from a homosexual with AIDs through a blood transfusion. Maybe something like this may happen that is out of their control. Even so the statistics above would be considerably lower if people would listen to God.
Young people, mature people, please be a good example if you are Christians and do what is right even if other people are doing something else and you desire to remarry. Be different. You are to be separated to God and be different.

If you are messing up and shacking up with a boyfriend or girlfriend or have already sinned. Stop now and make a decision to stop and follow Jesus and do what is right. Ask for forgiveness and walk in a new way even if you are the only one you know who is doing it God’s way. Get out of the cycle of living like people on TV or the movies and everyone in town and say no to fornication and adultery. In reality there are people all around the world making the decision to do things God’s ways . God bless you.
