Sexual Sins

God doesn't have a problem (according to the Bible) with two people of the same sex loving eachover, but start having a sexual relationship and he has. The same goes for sex with close family members, sex with children and fornication (sleeping around). Jesus even said "If you look with lust you have already commited adultery with that person" (looking at pornography is easily avaliable and would fall into this category). Gods best for us is loving, committed, lifelong relationships with someone of the opposite sex (not always easy but do-able). Just because we fail to reach a standard doesn't mean we should do away with the standard. Imagine life without any speed restrictions. Just how fast would we go?

A women was caught in adultery and brought before Jesus to be judged. The people who brought her wanted to stone her to death according to Jewish law (back then adultery carried the death penalty). However they didn't bring the man, and the women remained silent. Jesus reminded the blood thirsty, baying crowd of their own sexual sins and asked if there was one perfect, sinless person, among them let him be the first to lift a stone. There wasn't so one by one they walked away. Actually that isn't true because there was one perfect, sinless man...Jesus. He told her to "Go and sin no more." Because Jesus payed the price for our sin upon the cross every individual has an opportunity to "Go and sin no more."  The sexual sins of the UK are grave; God will not be mocked. We all need to repent (have a change of mind about what we are doing and looking at and walk the other way) and be forgiven. (not always easy but do-able).

Hot Scriptures

Many people do not understand just how hot The Bible is. Gods firey passion for humanity burns on every page. From the moment humanity fell, on that monumental day way back in time, God has been at work communicating with a word that at large doesn't want to know Him. Humanities arch enemy has been busy trying to discredit Gods finest communication piece...His Holy Bible. He will highlight the scriptures which speak of judgement and punishment and gloss over the ones which speak of Gods mercy, love and passion. He will try and be-little it by pointing out the obvious "It was written by men." Satan knows salvation knowledge cannot come about apart from Gods holy word. He goes to great lengths to keep us from it. However like a message in a bottle bobbing on the sea, Gods heart cry is... reach out, pick me up, read me and then you will find me.
