SEXUAL SINS



Scripture addresses five sexual sins; adultery, fornication, homosexuality, incest and beastiality. Adultery violates the seventh commandment while the latter four are violations of the law of Moses. When Moses was given the law the words inscribed on the tables of stone were those spoken to Israel on the day of assembly, Exodus 20:1-17 , Deuteronomy 5:22 . The second set of tables contained the exact same words, Exodus 34:1 , Deuteronomy 10:2 . The Ten Commandments were not know to humanity before God gave them to Moses. Deuteronomy 5:3 Now the Ten Commandments were placed inside the ark of the covenant, Exodus 25:16 but the law of Moses was outside of and beside the ark. Deuteronomy 31:26 . In this law of Moses were the judgments or penalty for violating the Ten Commandments, additional laws concerning the festivals, unclean laws, and sexual laws as well as other laws totaling 603 Mosaic commandments with the Ten Commandments making the total number of laws 613. Now, fornication is sex between unmarried people, incest is forbidden in Leviticus 18:6-18 & Leviticus 20:11-21 shows death was the penalty for theses sins .
The sin of homosexuality, Leviticus 18:22 and beastiality, Leviticus 18:23 . The Ten Commandments were the statutes and the law of Moses contained the judgments. All sin is worthy of death without mercy under this system of laws. Hebrews 10:28 , Deuteronomy 17:6 . Sexual sins are no worse than other sins but all sins earn the wages of death , Romans 6:23. All of these sins, all 613, can be forgiven under the new covenant and all of these laws are combined under the law of Christ, love God and love neighbor, Mark 12:30-31 , Matthew 22:40 . Some of you have seen posts here on Simply Christian about Liberal Christianity that believes the scriptures must be viewed through the lens of modern society and must change to include homosexuality and other sins that the prophets, Jesus and Apostles plainly state are sins. Sin has never changed and is the same today as in biblical times. Liberal Christianity provides a way for the sinner to not feel they are sinners and welcomes the sinner with their unrepentant sins as fellow Christians. There is a lesson for all of us here; do not carelessly read any post and do not be impressed with great swelling words of emptiness. Check out what these posts are really saying before you give a thumbs up.

It is a very difficult endeavor to attempt to itemize all those O.T. laws and determine which ones are still against those 613 laws of the Pentateuch. Some were rules about diet, grooming, etc. I am very grateful that Jesus and His Apostles made clear which ones we need to adhere to, today.

Ro 7:1–6 Or do you not know, brothers—for I am speaking to those who know the law—that the law is binding on a person only as long as he lives? For a married woman is bound by law to her husband while he lives, but if her husband dies she is released from the law of marriage. Accordingly, she will be called an adulteress if she lives with another man while her husband is alive. But if her husband dies, she is free from that law, and if she marries another man she is not an adulteress.

Likewise, my brothers, you also have died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to him who has been raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit for God. For while we were living in the flesh, our sinful passions, aroused by the law, were at work in our members to bear fruit for death. But now we are released from the law, having died to that which held us captive, so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit and not in the old way of the written code.

Sin has never changed and is the same today as in biblical times.
This is a very deep statement in that discernment must be given by God, because man will make amendments - just as you stated by our liberal version of Christianity (which should not be capitalized here) because it doesn't really exist.

If we truly agape we will fulfill any law that exists. Agape is the fulfillment of the law. This is why I now define sin as whatever is not of Yahwehs agape.
