THE IMMORAL IDENTICAL TWINS by Precious C Philip
"Let marriage be held every way in honour, and the bed be undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers will God judge." Hebrews 13:4
Did you know that fornication and adultery, in other words, pre-marital sex and extra-marital sex are immoral identical twins? How are they identical twins? This is what this article seeks to explain, so read till the end.
It is strange how the world thinks adultery is bad, but believes pre-marital sex is okay. It is quite funny because they forget that majority of today's adulterers were yesterday's fornicators. They were having sex before they got married, now that they're married, did they suddenly transform into a different individual? Not at all! What changed is their marital status and the prefix added to their names; the personality/individual never changed. So the habit they developed before marriage to have sex with different persons and be comfortable with it remains with them; the option they have now is to satisfy this habit by having extra-marital sex .
A habit that is developed before marriage cannot be suddenly dropped after marriage.
Pre-marital sex and extra-marital sex are identical in the sense that those who practice them are both having sexual relations with someone they're not married to. Therefore, if you build the habit of comfortably having sex with someone you're not married to before marriage, after marriage, you'll likely continue with the habit; and if you don't continue because you've built some level of self control, when you find yourself under serious pressure or temptation to sleep with someone you're not married to for a gigantic material gain or under a threat that if you don't you'll lose your life or something of great value, you're more likely to give in.
If you tell young people it is okay to have pre-marital sex with protection (sleep with someone they're not married to), why turn around to tell them after they marry that it is wrong for them to have extra-marital sex (sleep with someone they're not married to)? It makes no sense at all. Because pre-marital sex and extra-marital sex are the same thing in the sense that people are sleeping with those they're not married to. When you have pre-marital sex, you sleep with someone who's not your spouse, and when you engage in extra-marital sex, you also engage in sex with someone who's not your spouse.
Therefore, the way to stop or reduce the level of adultery being practiced in our world today is to tell young people to abstain from pre-marital sex and make them know it is wrong. The truth remains that every fornicator is an adulterer trainee. Eight out of ten persons that engage in sex before marriage will engage in extra-marital sex when under pressure, serious temptation or challenge.
If we must end adultery, we must end fornication first.
Fornication is the mother of adultery. Unless fornication is destroyed, it'll conceive and give birth to adultery. Kill the mother and you'll not have to deal with the child. Destroy the root and you will not have the fruit.
Pre-marital sex is having sex with someone you're not married to. Extra-marital sex is also having sex with someone you're not married to. You can't be in favour of pre-marital sex and be against extra-marital sex. If you support pre-marital sex, you honestly have no right before God to condemn extra-marital sex. You have no right at all! So next time you're tempted to speak against adultery, first check your stand on fornication. You cannot support fornication and condemn adultery. MOST adulterers started as fornicators. You can't tell them pre-marital sex is okay and then turn around to tell them extra-marital sex is wrong. To attenuate adultery, begin by attacking fornication.
The lifestyle of fornication doesn't end when you marry; Fornicators are Adulterers in Training.
Are you single and sexually active? Repent today from the immoral lifestyle of fornication if you don't want to end up as an adulterer. Stop engaging in pre-marital sex if you sincerely desire to be faithful to your spouse after marriage.
Are you married but having extra-marital sex? Repent today from the sin of adultery. Give attention to what God's word says in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 "Do ye not know that unrighteous [persons] shall not inherit [the] kingdom of God? Do not err: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor those who make women of themselves, nor who abuse themselves with men,nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor abusive persons, nor [the] rapacious, shall inherit [the] kingdom of God."
Heaven is a real place and it is the kingdom of God. Hell is a real place and it is the abode of Satan. Sexual purity is required to enter heaven. Sexual immorality sends a Christian straight to hell. Choose sexual purity and choose heaven.
