18Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
24Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. 25And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
…, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, andthe two shall become one flesh’?
if a man is blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of dissipation or insubordination.
Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.
As a loving deer and a graceful doe, Let her breasts satisfy you at all times; And always be enraptured with her love.
Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.
“The Bible recognizes marriage as an institution between a man and a woman. Beacon Baptist church recognizes homosexual practice as clearly defined in scripture as sinful. Persons struggling with homosexual temptation will be loved, respected, treated with dignity and even granted membership. Those practicing homosexuality or any other open sin are subject to church discipline and will be denied membership and service opportunities within Beacon Baptist church.”
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor £homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.
You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.
If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.
For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
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.
Now before they lay down, the men of the city… called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally.” …13For we will destroy this place, because the outcry against them has grown great before the face of the Lord, and the Lord has sent us to destroy it.”
Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
And lest, when I come again, my God will humble me among you, and that I shall bewail many which have sinned already, and have not repented of the uncleanness and fornication and lasciviousness which they have committed.
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
1. Marriage is between a man and a woman, their bed is not defiled.
2. Sex outside of marriage is fornication.
3. Homosexuality is fornication.
4. Pornography is a serious sin that will likely lead to fornication.
