Bachelorette: Haven For Premarital Sex

image.png

According to the Scriptures, fornication is a clear violation of the Word of God.

Equally appalling in this show is when people profess to be believers in Christ and deliberately engage in what Christ and others in the Bible prohibits.

Jesus said in Matthew 15:19 (NKJV Strong’s) “For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.”

In this show, the temptation for sexual immorality is very high.

The seductress and the lust-mongers are prepared to engage in sex before marriage.

This is nothing new.

People engage in premarital sex every day.

But when you see a professed believer on the show make a decision to no longer engage in fornication, and then share that belief with a person prepared to engage in fornication, according to the world, it’s a very unacceptable position.

In fact. You are judging them.

Why?

The rule of the world, when you watch this show and other like it, is to see two people engage in sex before marriage.

To refuse to follow the story line, expecting two persons to engage in premarital sex, is a violation of their progressive sexual liberality.

Fornication is the world’s gauge for marriage. They deceptively believe………good sex equal good marriage.

Sex before marriage is no guarantee that the marriage will be good.

They deceptively believe that love for each other is determined in the bedroom, before vows are exchanged.

It’s punishable by their law of sin and death if you don’t have sex before marriage, and they have a hell to put you in.

But it’s not just sexual immorality with one person.

We’re talking about multiple partners in this show.

I have to admit that I’ve never seen the show (and I won’t), but just the fact that in reading other articles about this show, it’s easy to conclude that multiple sexual partners is the standard.

But look at the harm fornication has caused.

Abortions. Sexually Transmitted Diseases.

We’ll never know the stories of some of these people that may have engaged in fornication. Whether or not a child may have been aborted. Or the sexually transmitted diseases acquired.

It’s quite possible that none of these things took place, but we’ll never know.

To take a stand against premarital sex reminds me of the peer pressure experienced when the question is asked whether you’re a virgin or not.

If you were a virgin, you were ridiculed.

Today, no matter your beliefs, no matter what the settled forever Scriptures declare, sexual immorality is covered by grace.

This is false.

Grace is not permission. 1 John 1:8-9 & 2:1-2 is not a revolving credit line of forgiveness.

Jesus didn’t die for our sins so that we could continue in sin (see Romans 6:1).

God is not demanding perfection. God demands obedience to Him and His Word.

His grace is sufficient and we’re to count in all joy when we fall into various trials and testings (see James 1:3 and 2 Corinthians 12:9).

The power and guilt of sin was removed by the Lord. As long as we walk in the Spirit, and according to the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus, we’re not condemned (see Romans 8:1-2).

Paul also said in Corinthians 11:31-32 (NKJV Strong’s) “If we judge ourselves, we would not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.”

Sin enters our lives by our permission to sin, but before sin enters, we decide to discontinue obeying Him and His Word. That’s why 1 Corinthians 10:13 is there. The Lord gives us a way of escape and will not allow temptation be beyond what you’re able….so that we’re able to bear it.

Grace is God forgiving us even though we deserve His wrath. His mercy prevents what we rightfully deserve. God is swift in mercy, gracious and kind, but when we provoke Him, and falsely assume that He would forgive us, we run the risk of abusing His patience and long-suffering.

It seriously brings into question our repentance and status as adherents of Christ. Are we crucified? Are we saved? Are we true believers? Are we truly delivered and set free? Are we practitioners of righteousness or practitioners of sin? Do we have dual citizenship, a citizen of His kingdom while being a citizen of satan’s kingdom?

Could light fellowship with darkness? (see 2 Corinthians 6:14-18).

Is there sin in heaven? Is there holy people in hell?

And this is where this bachelorette that profess to believe that Jesus doesn’t mind is wrong.

The Scriptures gives us guidance and we have the power of choice to accept or reject the Scriptures. However, professed believers do not have the right to alter the Scriptures to fit their sinning lifestyle. This encourages other young believers that engage in fornication to do the same.

The Scriptures doesn’t give us license to sin and then gives anyone permission to violate the Scriptures.

Proverbs 30:5-6 (NKJV Strong’s) “Every word of God is pure;
He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him.
Do not add to His words,
Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar.”

We don’t get to alter the Word.

The Word when obeyed is given to change us. We don’t change the Word.

So if you’ve seen this episode, if you’re a true believer, you see the self deception. But also you see a twisting of the Scriptures.

When you’re involved in sexual immorality, and the Scriptures are brought to bear on them and others, some of you will say, “No harm, no foul.”

And there are others that agree with them.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10, Hebrews 13:4, and Revelation 21:8 stands against you.

Cracker Barrel Is Cracked Up

Read the facts of this article by clicking the link below.

Well businesses are refusing service to Christians, local Christian assemblies, and groups that express their true Biblical beliefs regarding homosexuals, gays, bisexuals, and transgenders.

If any Christian, local assembly, or Christian group, express “hatred” against the sin of homosexuality, they will be asked not to come to their establishment.

No different than when the Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family were asked to leave because the manager took to heart what Congresswoman Maxine Waters said in her speech to confront Trump administration officials anywhere.

Free speech is under attack and it should be no surprise to any of us.

What you believe is under attack.

The right to express and practice what you believe is under attack.

There’s a difference between hating a person and hating the sin a person is participating in. Now many people will disagree with this by saying that there’s no difference.

In other words, hate the sinner AND the sin they’re in.

Matthew 5:43-44 (NKJV Strong’s) “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you…”

Jesus teaches all real genuine believers to do the opposite.

“Love your enemies.”

This is tough for people with minds that refuse to be renewed.

Paul said in Romans 12:2 “…and be not conformed to this world, but be transformed, by the renewing of your minds…”

Paul also said “…but speaking the truth in love…”

If you have hatred in your heart towards an enemy, the love of God is not in you, and you’re not obeying the teaching of Jesus.

God is not commanding you to change the status of the enemy but to love them.

We all know that homosexuals are militant because they want to remain in the bondage of sin. They’re enemies of the cross of Christ. Most of them, not all of them, have a very direct hatred for anyone that tell them that they’re in sin.

That’s because they don’t believe that what they’re doing in sin is wrong.

Now when it comes to homosexuals that consistently practice homosexuality, they’re not saved. Therefore, they’re not considered “brothers” in the Lord.

So since you’re unwilling to compromise and capitulate to their position, homosexuals will use every available tool to express their hatred of you.

By using fines, job loss, vilification, criminal acts of assault, they do this just to make things miserable for true believers.

But true believers of the Lord would never do these things against homosexuals.

Fase believers will.

Jesus expressed His love for sinners by sacrificing His body on the cross to save every man.

Even to the point of loving those that participated in His crucifixion.

That’s true love.

Now just because you may be a participant in a denomination, it doesn’t make a person a believer in the Body of Christ.

Notice what John said in 1 John 3:4-9 (NKJV Strong’s) “Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him.

Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.”

The Bible is very clear about the conduct of believers and unbelievers.

Jesus said in Matthew 7:21-23 (NKJV Strong’s) “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

So if you practice the sin of homosexuality, you’re lawless.

IF you abide in Jesus, you do not practice what’s lawless (unrighteous). You practice what’s (righteous) lawful.

Having said that, true believers ought not operate in hatred.

This is not to say that this Baptist group operated in hatred. It is the accusers that claim that these Christians hate because of what they believe about the sin of homosexuality.

1 John 4:18-21 (NKJV Strong’s) “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love Him because He first loved us.

If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also.”

For homosexuals to claim that true believers are “homophobic,” perfect love casts out fear. We’re not fearful of homosexuals, or what they’ll use to make us conform to their wishes.

We have no fear of homosexuals or their tools to force conformity and enforce acceptation.

We fear the Lord and His Word.

This Scripture above is speaking to us about our Christian acquaintances.

However, we see the same principle should be applied to those that aren’t believers according to Matthew 5:43-44.

So each establishment could do whatever they want to deny services. And yes, it’s discriminatory. Make no mistake about it.

But true believers have choices too.

Taking your business elsewhere isn’t considered an act of hatred towards a business.

It’s an act of disassociating yourself with a business that exercised discriminatory hatred of you and your beliefs.

They don’t want to associate with you, and you in kind, don’t want to associate yourself with them. No harm no fowl.

There’s no reconciling the hatred of people or establishments.

We can choose to avoid patronizing Cracker Barrel and communicate avoiding this and other places of business that demand we conform to their wishes.

If they refuse service, we will not vilify them.

We just take our business elsewhere.

However, we should also avoid hatred in doing so, walk in love, and pray for them which despitefully use and persecute us.
