FORNICATION AND SEXUAL DISEASE IN THE LAST DAYS
by Alan Yusko
- Due to the importance of this tract I would encourage people to copy, print and freely distribute it. The only limitation is that it may not be changed in any way.
We are truly living in the last days before the return of the Lord Jesus! The world is in the process of throwing away all forms of discretion, decency, and morality. With "the world's" approval many are living for their lusts in these last days. Marriage is no longer important as the covenant of marriage is breaking down. Why get married if it is OK just to live together? Men are lusting after women. Women are lusting after men. Men are lusting after men and women are lusting after women. As a result many people have hurt themselves physically and spiritually as they pursue their immoral lifestyle. Good has become evil and evil has become good. This is very true in the area of sexual morality.
The spiritual danger of the sexually immoral is rejecting Jesus and perishing in hell as a lost sinner. The physical danger of the sexually immoral is disease, tormet, and a shortened life span. There are all kinds of diseases out there ready to infect those who disdain the monogamous sexual relationship in marriage. In fact there are so many diseases that most people do not even know the extreme danger they place themselves as they fornicate from partner to partner. Yes, everyone has heard of AIDS and this plague is a great killer of the sexually immoral. But besides AIDS there are many diseases that can kill and torment a person.
This tract will give an overview on some of the common sexual diseases. We will look at how a person can contract the disease, the symptoms and cure (if possible). We will also look at what the Bible says about the sexually immoral.
PREVENTION OF SEXUAL DISEASE
There are only two ways to prevent an infection from a terrible sexual disease. The first is abstinence from sexual relations. The second is a faithful marriage relationship. There is really no other way. Condoms certainly are not the answer. The lost sinners claim that by just wearing a condom you are protected and can have 'safe sex' with your many partners. This is a lie. People still get pregnant even though a condom is used. The AIDS virus is much smaller than a sperm cell and can easily pass through the many defects in a condom. Plus it is possible to transmit a sexual disease by close contact and even by kissing. Gonorrhea for example, doesn't always manifest symptoms and it can infect the mouth area. A person can be infected by a good kiss to the lips and mouth area. Never-the-less the lost sinner and sexually immoral goes from partner to partner without understanding the dangers of sexual diseases. Many people must have some kind of invulnerability complex or a "it-wont-happen-to-me' type of attitude. Well, I have to let you know, if you play with fire, you will get burned. It is as simple as that.
There is no great trick to avoiding sexual diseases. Simply do not fornicate (sex outside of marriage) to avoid terrible disease. There is no pill or condom or any other scientific device to protect from a sexual disease.
All sexual sin will one day be judged. Those who fornicate before marriage and those who commit adultery after marriage will face judgment.
4 Marriage [is] honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
1 Corinthians 6
18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
According to God's Word, the Bible, if you fornicate, you are sinning against your own body. As a result there are devestating consequences for such sin. The sexual diseases out there are terrible and should be avoided at all costs! These diseases will slowly destroy your body or torment you with their unpleasant symptoms. Any rational, thinking person would not want to be infected with any of the sexual diseases that can be easily contracted.
Today there are all kinds of disease that afflict those involved in sexual sin. AIDS, herpies and many other sexual disease show God's disapproval to those who reject morality. If you disagree with that statement then here is a question. What sexually transmitted disease would be here today if sexual immorality was not practiced? The answer is none! AIDS, for example, is only a problem because of the sexually immoral. Without sexual immorality AIDS would not have spread at all. The same is true with the other sexually transmitted diseases. However since we live in a sex crazed world that rejects Godly morals, we see terrible sexual diseases everywhere at alarming and increasing proportions. These diseases spread like wild-fire as the fornicators travel from partner to partner with no concern for God or morality.
The first disease we will examine is the very well known plague of AIDS. This disease has gotten lots of publicity in the last 10 years. Unfortunately many people know about AIDS and are blind to all the other diseases besides AIDS. Here is some information on this plague of AIDS.
Description: AIDS is caused by strains of a virus, known as HIV (human immunodeficiency virus). HIV attacks certain white blood cells called T4, or CD4, cells. The virus is spread through the exchange of body fluids (semen, blood, and blood products). Sexual fornication is a great way to spread the disease. Other ways to become HIV positive is by tainted blood and blood transfusions. This type of infection has been very dangerous as the blood supplies that are used by hospitals have been contaminated by the AIDS virus. Drug use using dirty needles or a nurse or doctor accidently stabbing themselves with a infected needle or scaple is another way to get AIDS.
Symptoms: AIDS can develop in the body for a decade or more without any visible symptoms. The disease weakens the body's immune system allowing other diseases to attack the body. As the immune system breaks down the body can be attacked by cancer, pneumonia, skin disorders, rashes and other problems. A test may be performed to see if the person is infected with the HIV virus. Most people who are HIV positive do not know it. As they fornicate they freely expose others to the disease.
Notes: Since AIDS can remain undetected for ten or more years a HIV positive person can freely spread the disease as he fornicates. AIDS is a fatal disease which will eventually kill the person who has it. Death comes by complications and diseases related to the breakdown of the bodies immune system. The person usually does not die directly from AIDS but fron the other complications and sicknesses from a destroyed body immune system. This disease is a killer. If you get it, you are dead. I hope you are ready to stand before God as there is no cure for AIDS. Since the virus easily mutates it will be virtually impossible to cure. As soon as a cure is found the virus will simply mutate to another form to bypass the cure. AIDS is a deadly plague which should be avoided at all costs. The sad thing about AIDS is that it is spreading rapidly. As the number of infected people increase the danger of innocent victims contracting this disease also increases. Innocent victims have already been infected by tainted blood or even from going to a dentist that does not properly clean his instruments. AIDS is truly one of the last days plagues upon the earth. It would never have reached its present level of widespread infections if it had not been for all the immoral fornicators who reject Gods laws and morals.
The next disease we will look at is Herpes. This is a terrible disease that also cannot be cured.
Description: It is a contagious viral infection affecting the genitals and mouth area of men and women. It is caused by the Herpes Simplex-2 virus (HSV-2). Another form of Herpes is caused by the Simplex-1 virus (HSV-1) and affects a person from the waste up with blisters and cold sores. This disease can be transmitted by contact with a infected person's genitals (HSV-2) or by a person's mouth that has sores and blisters (HSV-1).
Symptoms: Painful lesions or sores that keep reappearing. With HSV-2 the sores are below the waist. With HSV-1 the sores are above the waist.
Notes: Herpes is very contagious and currently in North America one person in six have the disease. Since it is a virus based sickness the bodies immune system fights this sickness. As a result the body may be weakened and in danger of other forms of infections and diseases. There is no cure for herpes. Once a person gets this disease they must live with it the rest of their lives. I've heard the term used to describe this disease: 'Herpes are forever!' It is not a fatal disease but it certainly is an infectious and uncomfortable disease to live with. It is best avoided.
The next disease we will look at was a big problem back in the sexual revolution of the 60's. However this disease has not gone away and a person can still be infected with this disease as they fornicate.
Description: caused by the spirochete Treponema pallidum. It is contracted by sexual contact as person fornicates with an infected person.
Symptoms: A chancre or a skin ulcer, eruption of the skin and mucous membranes, inflammation of the eyes, bones, and central nervous system. This disease can damage the heart and aorta. If not treated, there can be central nervous system damage which could lead to blindness and insanity.
Notes: Syphilis is treated with Penicillin. However there are now resistant strains that cannot be cured. This is dangerous as many types of syphilis can be treated but others are incurable. I guess it is the 'luck of the draw' to see which type you will get if you are fornicating. Maybe you will get the type of syphilis that cannot be cured or maybe you will get the type that responds to drugs. If you are a immoral person then prepare to enjoy your time with terrible diseases like syphilis.
The next disease was also quite popular with the sexual revolution of the 60's. However this disease, like syphilis, is still present today.
Description: Gonorrhea is a sexually-transmitted disease (commonly known as "the clap" among the hip) caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhea. Areas of the body that can be infected are the genital areas, the mouth, the throat, and the anus. Sexual contact with any of these areas on an infected person can expose a one to the bacteria.
Symptoms: Vaginal discharge, increased urinary frequency, and urinary discomfort (dysuria), lower abdominal and pelvic pain, fever, sore throat, painful sexual intercourse, generalized symptoms of bacterial infection, and sterility.
Notes: Approximately 50% of women with gonorrhea have no symptoms of the disease. So they freely and unknowingly spread the disease as they fornicate. Gonorrhea is often associated with the presence of other sexually-transmitted diseases. Many times these diseases are a package deal. You get several at a time instead of just one! There are also forms of the disease that cannot be cured. Again it is luck of the draw for the fornicators to see what type of disease you will contract! Ask yourself the question the next time you fornicate: 'Do I feel lucky today?'
The next disease is one many people have not heard about at all. But this disease is out there and ready to infect the fornicators.
Description: Caused by microorganisms that live as parasites within a cell(Chlamydia trachomatis). These microorganisms have properties in common with both viruses and bacteria. Transmitted by sexual contact with an infected person.
Symptoms: The majority of people with chlamydia are without symptoms until complications appear. In men, the symptoms are similar to gonorrhea. Remember several of these diseases come as a package deal. You just don't get one but you get several diseases at a time! Symptoms for men are: burning with urination, discharge from the end of the penis, tenderness or pain in the testicles and lower abdomen and fever and chills. For women, Infection can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). This can cause scarring of the fallopian tubes and sterility. Other symptoms are: urinary burning, increased urinary frequency, and a mild urethral discharge. Sounds like a fun disease doesn't it! Doesn't it make a person just want to go out and fornicate and risk contracting these problems? In addition, there are three strains of chlamydia that are responsible for another sexually-transmitted disease, called lymphogranuloma venereum. This disease is a cause of proctitis and colitis (inflammation of the lower intestine).
Notes: Many times people with gonorrhea are also infected with chlamydia and tests for both should be performed. Treatment is with antibiotics. In women, once PID develops, one out of five will become infertile. Here is some other interesting news about this disease: About 70% of individuals infected with chlamydia do not know they have an infection! Until symptoms appear most do not know they have the disease. Remember that fact if you are a lost sinner and are heading off to a night of fornication.
Next we have a disease that not too many people know about. However it is out there in the world of fornication and immorality for all to freely partake.
Description: Passed by sexual contact as people fornicate from partner to partner.
Symptoms: A family of more than 60 viruses that cause various growths (warts). The warts can be removed but often reoccur. These warts are often associated with cancer of the cervix, vulva, vagina, and penis.
Notes: Not a well known sexually transmitted disease but certainly one to avoid! Re-occurring warts is not a good thing to have. Especially if those warts are on the genital areas of a person's body and can lead to cancer.
Here is another disease that is rarely heard of.
Description: a sexually transmitted disease caused by the parasitic protozoan Trichomonas vaginalis.
Symptoms: In men it can infect the urethra and bladder. For women it can cause urinary tract infection and cause pain in the genital area. There can also be a foamy, irritating discharge.
Notes: This disease can be treated with a drug called metronidazole. Again the best cure is prevention. In fact prevention is the best cure for all these sexual diseases. In this life we have enough problems. There is really no need to go out and look for new ones.
Next we look at scabies. This is another not-well-know sexual problem that the immoral may contract as they fornicate.
Description: Scabies is a skin infestation by small parasites called itch mites. They are transmitted by close body contact with another person during a sex act. In this case, simply touching a person with the mites (handshake) could cause an infection. This is one problem where a person can get infected by touch - sexual or not. The mite lays eggs in the skin of the infected person. As the little bugs hatch from their eggs they are hungry. They feed like crazy on the infected person's tissue causing severe itching and irritation. A new generation of mites is produced about every three weeks.
Symptoms: Intense itching which begins one month after the initial infestation. Heavy scratching can lead to bacterial infections.
Notes: A lotion containing permethrin or lindane spread on the skin easily cures the condition. At any rate who wants little bugs growing, eating, and hatching eggs on your body?
The next disease we will look at is Hepatitis. There are many strains of this virus but some of them can be passed by sexual contact. This puts the sexual fornicators in danger of contracting this disease.
Description: inflammation of the liver caused by viral infection. There are several strains of the hepatitis virus. Hepatitis B & C can be transmitted by sexual contact. Other ways to get Hepatitis is through infected blood (transfusion, sharing drug needles etc).
Symptoms: Symptoms include fever, loss of appetite, muscle pains, tiredness, and jaundice.
Notes: Hepatitis cannot be cured. Over time it will damage the liver and cause premature death. This is one to avoid at all costs.
WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS:
Above is quite a summary of several sexually transmitted diseases that are available for easy infection. It really does not pay to violate God's command and God's laws of moral purity. But unfortunately some people love their pleasure so much that they will not listen to facts or consider changing their lifestyle. Here is what the Bible says about such people:
1 Tim 5:
6 But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth.
17 He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.
The Bible warns of severe consequences of sexual sin and immorality. Below is an account of a young man who got involved in sexual sin with a pretty woman. At the time he fornicated it looked good and was even enjoyable. Little did he realize that he was heading toward death. Notice verse 11 below where the man mourns and is sad as his body is consumed. I believe this is a reference to a sexual disease.
1 My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding:
2 That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.
3 For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:
4 But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a twoedged sword.
5 Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.
6 Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.
7 Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
8 Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house: 9 Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel:
10 Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labours be in the house of a stranger;
11 And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,
12 And say, How have I hated instruction, and my heart despised reproof;
Verse 11 and 12 above shows the young man mourning as he is dying in a disease racked body. He laments the fact that he hated instruction and reproof. He rejected sound teaching and is now dying as a result of his rebelliousness. Do you know anyone like that? Well our current society praises and lifts up on high people like the above young man. Many young men like the above today are considered 'role models' and even star in big hollywood movies as they freely fornicate from partner to partner. However the young man in the above Biblical example died as a result of his sin and that fact is hidden from those who promote sexual sin. The lesson to be learned from the above Scripture is there is a price to pay for sexual sin. You may very well pay that price with your life or you could suffer for the rest of your life with a terrible degenerating disease!
WARNINGS about strange women
The Bible warns men again and again to stay away from immoral women. They are a trap and a snare and will cause pain and death. Although they may be skilled in the art of flattery stay away from sexual sin with a strange woman. Here we will look at some scripture warning about a strange (immoral) woman:
16 To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words;
Notice that the strange woman uses flattery to entice her prey.
17 Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God.
Both parties who get involved in fornication and adultery have forsaken God. Those who love God will stay clear away from multiple sexual partners and fornication.
18 For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead.
Those who get involved in fornicaton are heading to death and hell. We already covered several terrible diseases that will destroy the body. After the body is destroyed the person has a lost eternity to face in hell, the lake of fire. I also believe that as a person fornicates from partner to partner they also develop a hardened heart to the Gospel. They back away from God and the salvation He freely offers as their fornication become more important. The end result of a hardened heard is dying in rejection of the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour.
19 None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the
paths of life.
20 That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous.
What do good men do? What to the righteous do? They stay clear away from sexual fornication and adultery.
21 For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall
remain in it.
22 But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.
God is judging and the Lord Jesus is coming back to earth very soon. The wicked will be cut off and those who belong to God will prosper and flourish. These verses give definite warning to stay away from strange, enticing women. Those who love judgment and death will ignore these warnings.
The next verses ask a question:
20 And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?
Why, why, why would a person want to fornicate with a stranger or someone outside the covenant of marriage? That is a good question to ask considering all the bad consequences (spiritual and physical) of sexual fornication.
21 For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.
Those who fornicate do not think that God can see what is happening. God is very aware of the moral climate in this world.
22 His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall
be holden with the cords of his sins.
23 He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.
For those who reject instruction and sound teaching they will go astray and ultimately die and be lost. They will be bound and addicted to their sin as they fornicate from partner to partner.
More warnings about fornicating and adultery:
24 To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.
25 Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids.
Again we are warned that strange, immoral, and evil women use flattery to entrap their prey.
26 For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.
Judgment and pain is the only thing that can result to those who fornicate.
27 Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?
28 Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?
29 So he that goeth in to his neighbour's wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent.
Can a person stick his hand in open fire and not be burned? The answer is no he cannot! Therefore do not think YOU can fornicate or commit adultery and not pay any consequences for that sin. You can be infected with a tormenting and deadly disease or you may be killed by a jealous spouse.
30 Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when
he is hungry;
31 But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.
32 But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.
33 A wound and dishonour shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away.
Those involved in fornication and adultery are destroying their own soul. These warnings are very clear. Do not do such a thing or else you will suffer the consequences! And I might add the consequences are not pleasant.
34 For jealousy is the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare
in the day of vengeance.
35 He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts.
For those involved in adultery be aware. The other person's spouse may become very jealous and take vengeance out upon YOU. Many people have been murdered by those in a jealous rage. How does a person protect himself from such an attack? Simple, do not fornicate and commit adultery.
More warnings about going after strange a woman!
5 That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words.
This is the third warning that a strange, immoral woman uses flattery to entrap her victim. Next we look a simple young man who goes after a strange woman.
6 For at the window of my house I looked through my casement,
7 And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,
A you man was walking who was young, strong, and lacked understanding. In otherwards he was a fool led around blindly by his desires.
8 Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to
9 In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:
This foolish young man goes walking (purposely) near the home of a strange women.
10 And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot,
and subtil of heart.
11 (She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:
12 Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)
The foolish young man is approached by a strange woman. This woman is rebellious and is not commited to her own family situation. She prefers to have many partners as she commits adultery.
13 So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said
14 I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows.
15 Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.
16 I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt.
17 I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
18 Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.
The strange woman uses flattery and slick speech to attract the young fool.
19 For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey:
20 He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed.
In this case the woman is married and her husband is away on business. Both the woman and the young man are aware of this fact and neither have any problem with adultery.
21 With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.
The foolish man listens and then gives in. She had to twist his arm but I get the impression that it was not very hard to entrap this victim.
22 He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;
The young man goes with the foolish woman. Since he lacks brains he doesn't realize that he is heading for personal disaster.
23 Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life.
At first he moves reluctantly but then his passion kicks in and he rushes off with the woman for some adultery. Little does he know that he is heading toward death.
24 Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth.
For those reading who are not foolish and can respond to sound teaching from God Himself... this warning is for you!
25 Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her
26 For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her.
27 Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.
God says stay away from the strange woman. Do NOT get involved in fornication or adultery at all! Do not be led astray by the flattery speaking strange woman. The consequences are great and will result in pain, sickness, and death. The physical result is death and the spiritual result is hell, the lake of fire.
Will people listen to this warning from God?
12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
For those who do not there is death waiting. Many of the diseases covered in this tract will lead to premature death with all kinds of painful symptoms.
THE SIN OF SODOMY
Another sin that has reached social acceptability is the sin of sodomy. Forty years ago the homosexuals were deep in their little closets doing their perverted acts in secret. However today everything has changed. People have come out of the closet and now practice sodomy openly for all to see. With the full blessings of society and the law makers sodomy is now a valid form of relationship or "sexual preference". Benefits are now paid to same-sex couples. Another interesting point is this trend is worldwide. Sodomy is acceptable at a worldwide level. It is not just the USA or Canada that has openly accepted sodomy and passed laws protecting the rights of the sodomites. Virtually all nations have accepted and legalized this form of immorality and fornication.
The Bible is full of warnings about the sin of sodomy. In this section we will look at several of them. The warning is very clear. God wants people to stay away from sexual sin. Below are several verses that show God's attitude toward the sin of sodomy:
22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is] abomination.
God is aware of the sin of homosexuality. In fact He calls it an abomination. If a man lays with another man like he would with a woman, it is an abomination to God. Society can pass all the laws it wants. God still says DON'T PARTAKE of this sin.
13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood [shall be] upon them.
In the days when God ruled as King of Israel the penalty for sodomy (homosexuality) was death. Again God calls this sin an abomination and in those days that crime was punished by death.
The next series of verses deals with sodomites in the land of Israel. The Bible refers to homosexuals as sodomites because that term also includes the judgment of God on that particular sin.
17 There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel.
God gave warnings that the women of Israel were not to become whores. Also the men were told not to be homosexuals (sodomites).
24 And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.
The term sodomites (homosexuals) is again referred to as an abomination to God. The nations before Israel were judged for these abominations and Israel was warned not to partake of their sins.
12 And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.
The sodomites were removed and cast out of the land of Israel. Also all the idols were removed from the land of Israel. These things were removed from Israel because these abominations brought the judgment of God.
46 And the remnant of the sodomites, which remained in the days of his father Asa, he took out of the land.
Again the sodomites (homosexuals) were removed from the land of Israel.
II Ki 23:7
7 And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove.
The places where the sodomites gathered to do their sin was destroyed. The concept of homosexual bath-houses is not a new one. When Israel cleaned their land they removed these houses of the sodomites.
1 Cor 6:9
9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
Above we see that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God. This means they will perish in the lake of fire. Burning forever in the lake of fire is a huge price to pay for a short time enjoying sin and wickedness. The effeminate and abusers of themselves with mankind describe the sodomite homosexual. Finally in verse 11 we are told that 'such WERE some of you'. The key word here is 'were'. Before a person is saved they are lost sinners. That person could be a drunkard, a thief, or a sodomite. However after salvation that person does not practice that sin any longer.
1 Tim 1:9-10
9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,
10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;
Two of the above describe the sin of sodomy. Both whoremongers and them that defile themselves with mankind describe homosexuality. It is something to be shunned and rejected. Also notice that all those that partake of the above sins are contrary to sound doctrine. If a person tries to defend the sin of sodomy, or the sin of murder, or lying from the Bible then they are contrary to sound doctrine. Do not listen to them as they have rejected sound doctrine and are merely trying to justify their sin.
Next we look at Romans chapter 1 which has lots of information on sodomy:
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
When God gives a person over to sin it is a sad day for that person. This means that he has rejected God and His salvation so God gives that person over to their sin. As a result they are given over to uncleanness and get involved in all kinds of evil lusts. They also dishonor their own bodies between themselves. This can include sodomy, fornication, or adultery.
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped
and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed
for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for EVEN THEIR WOMEN DID CHANGE THE NATURAL USE INTO THAT WHICH IS AGAINST NATURE
Again God is given the wicked person over to their sin and vile affections. Verse 26 describes the abomination of women sodomites ... or lesbians. God says it is against nature for them to do that sin. Because they have reject Him, God gives them up to their sin. It is really sad when a hard hearted person is given over to their sin.
27 AND LIKEWISE ALSO THE MEN LEAVING THE NATURAL USE OFTHE WOMAN BURNED IN THEIR LUST ONE TOWARD ANOTHER, MEN WITH MEN WORKING THAT WHICH IS UNSEEMLY, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Next we have the men whom God has given over to vile affections. Notice the men burn in their lust toward each other. Men with men doing evil forms of fornication as they leave the natural use of the woman. This is a description of sodomy. As a result they receive in themselves recompense of their error. This means they are judged and will reap the fruit of their sin. Today sodomites carry 4-5 sexually transmitted diseases at one time. Most die young and live lonely and unhappy lives. Quite a price to pay for being given over to vile affections.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Since the sodomites choose not to retain God in their knowledge they are given over to reprobate minds. What is a reprobate mind? Well it is a person who can no longer tell good from evil. This person has rejected God and His moral standards and everything becomes relative. That person has no discernment and cannot distinguish good from evil. A reprobate person may have a big mouth and speak glowing words but they still have no Godly discernment.
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication,
wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder,
debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
The reprobate people who God has given over to vile affections just become worse and worse as time goes by. Verse 29 states they are 'filled' with all unrighteousness...etc... Since they chose not to be filled with the things of God instead they are given sin and evil to fill their hearts.
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Deep down the reprobates and sodomites know that God is against their sin. They know that just as God judged Sodom and Gomorrha, He one day will judge them. But they ignore that and continue practicing gross sin. They also take a perverse pleasure in others that do the same sin as do they engage in. Today we see that as hollywood seems to be hell-driven to convert as many to sodomy as possible. There are sodomite characters in sit-coms and movies in an alarming and increasing frequency.
Well the above verses from the Word of God say it all. It doesn't matter how a government rules or makes laws. God still says that sodomy is a sin. Anyone with a problem with that fact has a problem directly with God and His precious Word, the Bible! A person can say what they will but God has already made His position very clear on the subject of homosexuality - sodomy in His Word, the Bible.
Today we have same-sex marriages, same-sex benefits, sexual-orientation, and homophobic people against such things! I would say that the world is heading into sexual sin at full speed. What was considered perversion just a few short years ago is now considered normal behavior. This will surely bring the judgment of God upon all the immoral and all those that encourage such filth. I have heard that there has never been a nation that gave itself over to sexual perversion that lasted more than 50 years. If that is true then North America is headed for trouble! Actually the world is heading toward judgment as it has openly embraced sexual sin. God will certainly judge just as He did with Sodom and Gomorrha. All the available sexual diseases that can easily infect the immoral fornicators shows that judgment has already begun.
WHAT WILL YOU DO?
As you read this tract are you involved in fornication or adultery? Are you a foolish person who lacks understanding? Are you NOT afraid of all the terrible sexual diseases that can be freely contracted by the sexually immoral? Let me go one step further. Those who willingly get involved in sexual fornication are doing what the devil would have them to do. This tract has clearly shown God's warnings about sexual fornication. God says do not do it. If you ignore God's warnings you will reap physical and spiritual consequences. The devil hates God and he hates you too! The devil wants people to fornicate and get involved in all kinds of sexual sin. See below:
44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Some of the lusts the devil wants people to perform are sexual fornication and adulteries. The devil wants to destroy people and harden their hearts so they will never be saved. If he can convince people to give themselves over to sexual sin then they are heading toward death and hell. This is what the devil wants. Who has understanding to see the warnings and the danger and avoid this type of evil?
2 Tim 4:3
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
We are living in days when many people are completely unteachable. Many embrace corrupt and false doctrine and will not listen to the truth. Others love their sin and no matter what the consequences they will never give it up. They may die young or contract a deadly disease but the goal is "having fun NOW!!!". That is really a stupid way to live but many are following foolish ways as they seek to satisfy their lusts at all costs.
IMMORAL PEOPLE - JEWELS IN PIG'S NOSES
If a person is immoral then they are destroying what God created as a beautiful thing. God did not make people to be immoral who fornicate from partner to partner with no concern for right or wrong. God uses an illustration of a pig and a beautiful piece of jewelry to describe the immoral.
22 As a jewel of gold in a swines snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion.
A pig has always been considered a dirty animal. The Jews were even forbidden by God to eat the pig. Swine and pig farmers were always looked down upon in Jewish culture. So taking a beautiful gold jewel and putting it into a pigs nose is like desecrating something clean and good. To apply this to modern times, a person who enjoys imorality and sexual sin is like the gold ring attached to a pigs nose. There is a higher calling in life than wallowing in the mud of sin and immorality. It is dirty sin like the mud which the pig loves to roll in. There are all kinds of terrible sexual diseases in the mud of sin that should be avoided. Pigs love to roll in the mud and don't care about the dirt and grime. People have a higher calling and should not be engaged in the 'mud' of sexual sin with all its disease, pain, and death.
I just want to say a few more things about the concept of 'safe sex'. The simple fact is there is no such thing as 'safe sex' outside of the marriage relationship. The common belief is if a man wears a condom then everyone is protected. Therefore people may freely fornicate becase they are doing 'safe and protected sex'. This is a lie straight from the pit of hell. Condoms may slightly reduce the probability of sexual disease but really not by very much. For example. If a fornication partner has gonorrhea and a condom is used then guess what! You can still get the disease! A person can have gonorrhea and not even know they are infected. Plus they may also have it in their mouth! This also is true for herpes which can infect the mouth area. There are other problems. The first being the fact that condoms do not always work. People have used condoms as birth control and still become pregnant. Also many (most) condoms have defects which allows the disease to still be transferred from person to person. Also what happens if the condom accidently breaks during useage? The bottom line is if you fornicate then be prepared for sickness and an early death. Do not for one minute think you are safe if a condom is used.
JUDGMENT ON THE LOST
For those who are lost and perishing the Bible gives some warnings about their ultimate destination. Remember there are physical and spiritual dangers from engaging in fornication. The physical dangers are pain, sickness/disease, and death. The spiritual dangers involve a hardened heart resulting in the person dying in rejection of God and the salvation so freely offered in the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible gives a short glimpse as the final destination of the wicked. Their place is in hell, the lake of fire. These verses give a discription on what hell is like for the lost.
10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
Hell is torment for all eternity with no rest day or night. That is quite a price to pay for rejecting God and the salvation so freely given in the Lord Jesus Christ.
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is [the book] of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
A great judgment is coming. At the end of it all those who are not saved will be thrown into the lake of fire.
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
The second death is the lake of fire. This involves torment forever separated from God and everything that is good as the person burns in the lake of fire. The first death is physical death where a person on earth dies and goes into eternity. At death a person is either saved or lost. A few years seeking physical lusts does not compare with the eternal dangers of hellfire.
In this tract we have covered several forms of terrible sexual disease which should be avoided at all costs. We also looked at what God says about sexual sin and related warnings found in the Bible. After reading this tract, I would suggest anyone with a teachable heart to stop fornicating. If you reject this advise then you better go out and pick out a good coffin and a plot. Your life will be shortened as eventually you WILL be infected with a terrible sexual disease. If the disease doesn't kill it will certainly give physical torment. We also covered that the only safety from these diseases is abstaining from fornication and adultery in all its forms. The goal should be to wait until a proper marriage relationship. Sex within a marriage is blessed by God but outside the marriage there is pain, sickness, and an early death. Anyone with a rational mind would want to avoid any of the sexual diseases covered in this tract.
I've heard it said that a man's morality will dictate his theology. This relates to the spiritual consequences to sexual sin. Many who reject Biblical warnings about sexual sin will embrace a theology that will allow them to enjoy their immoral lifestyle. Do not be deceived by your own lusts. Fornication is evil and it will hurt you in physical and spiritual ways. It should be avoided at all costs. If you are involved in an immoral lifestyle then repent, turn to the Lord Jesus, and leave that sinful lifestyle. It really is that simple!
We'll close this tract by going through some verses related to the salvation so freely offered through the Lord Jesus Christ.
Before anyone can be saved they have to have a repentant attitude toward sin. This means they must dislike the sin and evil in their lives with a willingness to turn away from sin. The following verses show how God wants people to be sorry and repent (turn from) their sin.
18 For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.
19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
Right now God is calling anyone who will listen to salvation. God doesn't want people to perish and die in their sins. God wants people to come to Him and be forgiven and receive the gift of eternal life.
18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
28 Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Rest to the weary is what the Lord Jesus offers. God does not want people to perish in hell. That is why God became a man (Jesus), died on the cross, and purchased a place in heaven which he offers as a gift to all who will receive. The good news is that people do not have to go to hell! God already paid the price for sin and now offers a love gift of forgiveness and eternal life to all who will receive it.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
God loves the lost sinner and now offers forgiveness and eternal life. Don't be a Christ rejecting person who loves darkness and sin rather than life. There is nothing that sin and darkness has to offer. Yes a person may fornicate for awhile. But soon they will be afflicted by terrible and tormenting diseases. It really is no fun to live in darkness and sin apart from God with an eternity in hell before you. Right now I would encourage you to pray this simple prayer with an attitude of repentance and faith:
Lord Jesus, I confess that I am a sinner. I acknowledge that I am lost in sin and in need of a Saviour. Right now, I ask you to come into my life to forgive and save me. I open the door to my heart and ask You to come into my life. I now receive You as my Saviour (trusting in You ALONE to save me) and my Lord (making You my Master and committing my life to You).
