Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of Godís mercy,
to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God
óthis is your true and proper worship.

About the word porneia mentioned in the Bible, homosexuality and sexual sin.


The word porn comes from the Bible, from the Greek word porneia (Greek transliteration). Porneia roughly means any sexual sin, sexual behavior prohibited by God.
The word porneia has many meanings, such as adultery, fornication, and homosexuality for example.
We are created to worship God. We are not created to sin.
The purpose of us is that we shall worship God, praise God and be completely blessed.

We live in a world who has turned away from God. We must get to the basic teachings of the Bible to learn to know God.
We are created to have a friendship realtion to God. We are created to worship God. That's a really cool and awesome meaning of life! And God is worthy to be worshipped! Heaven is not empty. There is a God. He loves us. He wants our worship. And he wants all your heart, not only half of it. We are not created for sin.
The Bible says that all knees will bow to God. Give your life to Jesus Christ now while you are still under God's mercy.
God wants us to leave our sinful ways and to live holy lives. God's judgement will come over the whole Earth very soon. Turn to God now. Turn to Jesus christ now and repent your sins. Stop doing your sins. Give your heart to God, to Jesus Christ.
There is mercy and forgiveness if you repent your sin and show the fruits of repentence.
Life does not end when we die. Then we will stand before our Creator and give account for our lives.

Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life.
But Jesus is also a way of life. A way of living.



Sexual immorality is a very serious sin
Although homosexual acts is a very serious sin, homosexuality is not the only sin in this world. There are many ways you can commit a sexual sin. Jesus said: But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
Matthew 5:28


But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
Matthew 5:28


My views on sexual moral/immorality and of homosexuality
The statement of Jesus in the bible verse above shows us how important our behavior is to God and how much he dislikes, hates sexual sin. It clearly shows that God cares very much about what we do with our bodies and how we relate to eachother, what we think on.
I have lived openly as homosexual for 20 years but I stopped doing so in October of 2013 because I read the Bible. I read it a little more carefully and I realized that I was very far away from the will of God. So I made a complete u turn. I still have homosexual feelings but Jesus has helped me to focus on other things in life and sexuality does not mean anything to me for the moment.
I'm not yielding to my homosexual feelings and I'm not acting out any of these feelings or desires in any way. Not even masturbation. It's actually quite seldom that I get temptations nowadays. It's almost like it's not there. I appears in dreams sometimes (quite seldom actually.) I pray for spiritual protection over my mind 3 times daily. I pray for protection against sinful thoughts, and I also pray for protection against homosexual feelings and thoughts, temptations. And Jesus protects me. I can also have sexual feelings for women nowadays. Even if it's not very strong, this was totally unthinkable for me some years ago.
I consider that the Bible is very clear about the fact that homosexuality is a sin, an abomination to God. It's something that God strictly forbids. God hates the sin but still loves the person and through Jesus's sacrifice on the cross we can all have our sins forgiven, including homosexual sins.
If you are living actively as a homosexual you are also watching porn, anyway 99% of all gay people I have met see porn as something normal. And so did I before. It comes along with the gay lifestyle. How is it possible that we can fool our selves to accept such an extreme level of sin? Read on this page what the word porn originates from. Understand how much God hates porn, and anything that is included into the meaning of that word. In the word porneia homosexuality is also included, homosexual acts, sex outside marriage and so on.
So if you want to be a Christian, then homosexuality is nothing that you can or should live out. Homosexuality is sin.
The Bible is God's word. It should be our guide in life. Our fundament for how we live our lives.
As we recieve forgiveness and God's love and mercy we must also understand that God wants us to stop sinning. The Bible says that people who actively participate in sinful lifestyles without repentance will not enter into Gods kingdom. It's either heaven or hell when we die, nothing in between.
Read the Bible with a sober mind. Realise that it's God's word, that it is above you, you are below. We shall not instruct and correct God or the Bible, it should be the opposite. The Bible should instruct and correct us.
God does not change. He will not change his word. We must change, bow to Him, the Creator of the universe.
We live in a fallen sinful world that has turned away from God. We have been mislead to think that sexual sin is not so important to God, because "God is love."
Yes God truly is love and compassion, forgiveness, mercy etc. This is true and thank God for that. Thank you Jesus for your precious sacrifice on the cross. But God is also pure, holy righteous and without sin.
And he is mighty and he will be our judge. Think about God's standards, what he likes and what he dislikes. Ok I know it's hard, very hard. There is forgiveness and mercy when we fall. But think of what God really likes. And try to live your life according to that way.
Of course it's up to you if you want to be a christian or not. But please understand that what is being preached/practised in today's churches is not always according to God's word.
Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. But Jesus is also a way of life. A way of living.

There are many ways heterosexuals can sin also. The parable of the ten virgins shows that only half of them were saved. Half of the congregation was left out in the darkness. And the parable speaks only about people who was waiting for the groom. They were all waiting for the Lord, waiting on God.
The parable is talking about the church. This is very serious. The ones that where lost didn't have the holy spirit in their lives. The church today is participating very much in worldly things. For example, I think that there are many things on "regular TV" that we as christians should not watch at all. Sexual sin is everywhere. In commercials, in advertisements, in soap operas, reality shows, action movies, in magazines, music videos, shopping windows.
Surfing the internet means a daily risk of being exposed to sinful content. I have started to put up my hand to cover the screen everytime a sinful advertisement shows up.
Another thing: sex is not the same thing as love. You can have lots of sex without having any love at all.


Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons,
1 Timothy 4:1


For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they gather together teachers for themselves to speak for their itchy ears;
And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall listen to fables.

2 Timothy 4:3-4


Donít you know that wicked people wonít inherit Godís kingdom? Stop deceiving yourselves! People who continue to commit sexual sins, who worship false gods, those who commit adultery, homosexuals, or thieves, those who are greedy or drunk, who use abusive language, or who rob people will not inherit Godís kingdom. Thatís what some of you were! But you have been washed and made holy, and you have received Godís approval in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.

Homosexuality is a sin yes. But people can change and Jesus died for those people also.
http://str.typepad.com/weblog/2012/01/is-homosexuality

God can do anything, if we let him, if we let him into our lives, if we let Him be our Lord. Anything related to porn is something that we as His children, as Christians should avoid at all times. The Bible says that we shall flee from sin.

Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.
And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
2 Timothy 2:22-24


And every man that has this hope in him purifies himself, just as he is pure.
1 John 3:3


And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
Ephesians 4:30

Love the sinner but hate the sin
Love the sinner but hate the sin. This is what I think we should do. If we console a person in his/her sin, we only do the person a disservice. We should be clear about what sin is and not try to please the world. But we also love our neighbor as ourselves.
God wants us to make a stand for him, for his word and also to be ready to pay the price.

He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches.
And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things says the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I wish that you were cold or hot.
So then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue you out of my mouth.
Revelation 3:13-16


For it is written: As I live, says the Lord, every knee will bow to Me, and every tongue will give praise to God.
Romans 14:11


The beauty of God's creation
This is how powerful God is. Bow to Him. He is worthy to be praised. Praise God the allmighty Creator. Don't worship in front of the TV/computer screen.

Being born again
Praise Jesus Christ God's son who gave his life for you. Jesus Christ died to pay the penalty for our sins. He also resurrected from death. He is the son of God. Believe this in your heart. Confess Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior. Make Him your Lord. Bow to him. Confess and repent your sins. Ask for forgiveness for your sins. Leave your sins behind. Be baptized in water. Be born again. Become a child of God.
