SEXUAL SIN . . . . . Revelation 2:20 Why is sexual immorality serious? Sex outside marriage always hurts someone. It hurts God because it shows that we prefer to follow our own desires instead of God’s Word. It hurts others because it violates the commitment so necessary to a marriage relationship. It hurts us because it often brings disease to our body and harms our personality. Sexual sin has tremendous power to destroy families, communities, and even nations because it destroys the relationships upon which these institutions are built. God wants to protect us from hurting ourselves and others, so we should have no part in sexual immorality, even if our society says it’s all right.
