Drugs, Alcohol, and Immorality?
People, because of their inherent sin, readily follow the tendencies and passions that Satan has designed. In this state the flesh seeks unrestricted fulfillment. Sexual immorality does not quench the fire of lust-it fuels it. Illicit sexual activity is no more a cure for lust than whiskey is a treatment for alcoholism. The truth is that weneed to deal with our lust. The soul-that part that lives on in eternity, when reaching out for God’s salvation-seeks to respect His laws.
Fornication, adultery, homosexuality, and sexual contact with animals is forbidden by the Word of God (Leviticus 18:23; Galatians 5:19-21). Immorality brings pain, heartbreak, wretchedness, guilt, and sexually transmitted diseases. Purity brings a sense of self-worth and dignity. It is a gross distortion to envision the highly principled individual as living in misery while the person of low morals has a life of bliss and fulfillment.
What about Drugs, Alcohol, and Immorality?
Amid this morass of immorality and spiritual blindness, of sin and shameless ungodliness, the Holy Bible sets the standard for moral behavior. It is the unquestionable and eternal authority on the matter of right and wrong.
God created man with the sex urge for the propagation of the human race and the enhancement of the marriage bond between husband and wife. He sanctions fulfillment of this desire only within rightful marriage. Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: But whoremongers and adulterers God will judge (Hebrews 13:4).
In the book of Romans, the apostle Paul writes on God’s judgment on homosexuality. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. And even as they did not 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). This was the abominable sin of Sodom and Gomorrah, and brought God’s Judgment upon them (Genesis 19). According to the scriptures it is impossible to retain the Holy Spirit in our hearts and live a Christian life if we live and practice these sins.
If you want to be really happy in life and be at peace with yourself and God, you must come into fellowship with Him. Recognize and confess that you are a sinner and believe that Jesus died on the cross bearing your guilt. Victory is awaiting you!
As you open your heart to God and confess your sins, He will forgive you. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).
Willingly commit your whole life to Jesus, your Savior, and follow in true obedience to His Word and Holy Spirit. The blessings of the changed life are pure thoughts, which bring about a wonderful change in our actions and activities. Christ will give you courage to face the problems of life and strength to overcome the temptations that may assail you. Come to Jesus now while He is calling. Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near (Isaiah 55:6).
