The Temple of the Holy Spirit

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any
man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple
ye are. 1 Corinthians 3:16-17

What? Know ye not that your body is temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of
God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your
body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. 1 Corinthians 10:31

Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians
10:31

For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godiness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the
life that now is, and of that which is to come. 1 Timothy 4:8

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health even as thy soul
prospereth. 3 John 1:2

Sex Before Marriage

But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and
from things strangled, and from blood. Acts 15:20

That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from
fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well. Acts 15:29

thing, save only that they keep themselves from things offered to idols, and from blood, and
from strangled, and from fornication. Acts 21:25

But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a
fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an
one no to eat. 1 Corinthians 5:11

Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of hrist,
and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. What? Know ye not that he which is
joined to an harlot is one body? For two, saith he, shall be one flesh. 1 Corinthians 6:15-16

Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that commiteth
fornication sinneth against his own body. What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the
Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought
with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. 1 Corinthians
6:18-20

Now concerning the things wherof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.
Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have
her own husband. 1 Corinthians 7:1-2
Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and
twenty thousand.1Corithians 10:8

But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as
becometh saints. Ephesians 5:3

For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: 1
Thessalonians 4:3

1. Sex is Only for Married Couples

Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the
husband. The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the
husband hath no power of his own body, but the wife. Defraud ye not one the other, except it be
with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together
again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency. 1 Corinthians 7:3-5

The Consequences of Fornication

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness,
lasciviousness, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you
before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which du such things shall not inherit the
kingdom of God. Galatians 5:19,21

Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will
judge. Hebrews 13:4

Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over
to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the
vengeance of eternal fire. Jude 1:7

Adultery

Thou shalt not commit adultery. Exodus 20:14

And the man that committeth adultery with another man’s wife, even he that committeth
adultery with his neighbour’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.
Leviticus 20:10

Neither shalt thou commit adultery. Deuteronomy 5:18

Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have
done no wickedness. Proverbs 30:20

But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed
adultery with her already in his heart. Matthew 5:28

The Consequences of Adultery

For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will
hunt for the precious life. Proverbs 6:26
But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth
his own soul. Proverbs 6:32

fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with
mankind. 1 Corinthians 6:9

judge. Hebrews 13:4

Homosexuality and Lesbianism

Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Leviticus 18:22

abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. Leviticus 20:13

Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to
dishonor their own bodies between themselves. Romans 1:24

For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their woman did change the
natural use into that which is against nature: And even as they did not like to retain God in their
knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not
convenient. Romans 1:26-28

Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful.
Romans 1:31

Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate
affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Colossians 3:5

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those
that are good. 2 Timothy 3:3

God hates sin, but He loves the sinner. In order for mankind to enter heaven, God requires three
things: acceptance of Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, true repentance, and obedience to
his Commandments.

Gluttony

When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee: And put a knife to
thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite. Be not desirous of his dainties: for they are
deceitful meat. Proverbs 23:1-3

Bet not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: For the drunkard and the glutton
shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags. Proverbs 23:20-21

vomit it. Proverbs 25:16
He that hath no role over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.

for strength, and not for drunkenness! Ecclesiastes 10:17

earthly things. Philippians 3:19

walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banqueting, and abominable idolatries.
