Minutes after I got born-again, the first thing God wanted me to repent from was fornication. But why does God hate fornication?
Here are the reasons:
1. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body (1 Corinthians 6:18). Of course fornication exposes a person to all kinds of diseases. Whenever I mention that somebody tells me of condoms. But my experience and observations tells me that people only use condoms during planned sexual activities. I used to work at a company that had condoms in the toilets, and I was not surprised whenever I hear sexual stories happening in the office. Reality is people only use condoms with their girlfriends, or with ugly girls they have no intentions of engaging in a relationship with.
So why would God want to expose people to diseases like Aids? Regardless of what you may have heard, God does feel the pain of each and every one of His children.
2. Children suffer from fornication.
I have friends who have children out of wedlock, and I always feel guilty whenever I have to mention my kids to them. Some of them haven’t even seen their children for years, and they don’t even know how they look. One of them has other men raising his kids, and it kills him inside but he can’t say anything about it to his current baby-mama because she hates his ex and their baby. For those children, they’ll have to live without a father and be raised by a stepfather who wants nothing to do with them, but just tolerate them because he loves their mother. Other stepfathers would go a step further and abuse some of these children, sexually and physically.
So why would a loving God expose children to this trauma? And why would a loving God separate a child from their parent? Why would a loving God allow the world to be full of single mothers, who are some of the most bitter and broken hearted people in the world?
3. Marriages suffer because of fornication.
Past experiences with other men and women are barely mentioned as causes of breakdown in marriages, but I’m certain those experiences account for more than half of divorces. Men having images of other women in their minds during sex with their wives is what’s destroying our marriages today. Wives comparing penis sizes and endurance of their husbands, against their former boyfriends, is what’s wrong with our marriages. A marriage bed that other women used to sleep in is what’s wrong with our marriages. Me and my wife just bought a new bed on Saturday, because she was tired of sleeping in a bed that other women used to sleep in. She says she can see and feel the evil spirits that are in that bed. I hope you and your wife don’t share a bed that you used to share with other women. Now that I think about it, it’s disgusting, considering I used to have a prostitute in that bed. Thank God for a wise wife, she has given away the curtains and everything my ex bought. However she has her own ex though, and I hope I never meet him otherwise I’ll feel like killing him because he used to beat her up (and other reasons I can’t mention).
4. Fornication embarrasses a person later-on.
One day I was in church holding my son, when I saw this ex of mine all smiling and hoping to have a chat. And there was my wife, seating there and having no clue of what’s happening. It was embarrassing for both me and the ex, she was about to give her life to Christ, and there I was reminding her of her past. She gave her life to Christ, although I think she backslided because I haven’t seen her since. I want to help her on her walk with Christ, but it’s improper for me to approach a sister without my wife especially one who happens to be my ex. I had to tell my wife about her last week, because she wanted to go buy make-up where this ex works.
What’s even more embarrassing; is the fact that my other ex just came for an interview where I work. And if she gets the job, then she’ll be working very closely with me. I have just heard they are not going to hire her, and as embarrassing as it is I’m actually happy about it. Imagine that, a Christian is happy that a good person hasn’t got the job she applied for.
That’s fornication, and why God hates it!
