"Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person commits a sin against his own body." 1 Corinthians chapter 6, verse 18. It looks like impure thoughts and actions damage us, upset God, and lead down all the wrong roads you want but will wreck on. So check yourself before you wreck yourself (yes, I found an actually appropriate use for that quote. Be amazed.) "For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater,) has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God." Ephesians chapter 5, verse 5. It also looks like cheating and sexual impurity (orgies, sex out of marriage, bestiality, sexual role-play, etc.) have no room in the Kingdom. Therefore, we who willing choose/engage in such immoralities will not have the kingdom either. Is temporary pleasure now that pains God worth an eternal loss of God-filled pleasure that comes later? Will you chose your own wants, or will you choose what is actually right and that which leads to good for you and others? Why are we choosing anything else?
Temptation's gonna always hit you right in your weak spots of strong desire. It's gonna flood over you and push you to do as you want. It'll twist everything around you to make it seem okay to do whatever it is-- Heck, it'll make it all even seem right and good for you and maybe others. But temptation is a liar, a destroyer, a thing to rid yourself of. Although I'm not posting it tonight, read 1 Corinthians 10:13. He will always give you a way out if you choose to escape. "Watch and pray so that you do not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak." Matthew chapter 26, verse 24. "Therefore submit yourselves to God. Resist the Devil, and he will flee from you. " James chapter 4, verse 7. Will you resist temptation today? Often, we don't even realise that we're being tempted. But if something's morality is questionable, don't do it.
