Sexual Perversion

Text: Romans 1:25-28    IBCSS    June 24, 2007

Preacher: Pastor Jose B. Cabajar

 

   Messages against "Sexual Perversion" are seldom heard in many Churches today, but we believe that preaching against such abominable sin is a wise move of every caring Pastor. A preacher who really loves the Truth and wants other people to be blessed through Biblical principles must have the courage to preach the Word of God without any reservation.

 

   In II Timothy 4:1-5, the Bible says, I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. (KJV)

 

   The Bible warns us of the danger of the coming apostasy and we are really blest because we have the Word of God as our guide so we may not become victims of spiritual ignorance. The devil is creeping craftily and gradually into Local Churches with a mission to change their Biblical ways into worldly ways. True Christians must be always on guard and be alarmed of the devil's dangerous intrusion in their congregations.

 

   Before we overlook the many deceitful ways the devil uses in destroying the true image of Christianity, we must not fail to consider "sexual perversion" as one of his favorite trap to ensnare believers in a shameful way. We should pray earnestly to God for spiritual perception so we may not be deceived by the tactics of the wicked.                              

 

(I)            The Cause

Romans 1:25

-Changing the truth of God into a lie

 

   It's a great sin and very dangerous act to change the truth of God into a lie. Truth is always truth and falsehood is always falsehood. True Christians are for the truth and should not be associated with perversion.  

 

   In Romans 1:25-27, it is written, Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 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 recompence of their error which was meet. (KJV)   

 

(II)          Kinds Of Sexual Perversion

 

-Adultery and fornication...............Deut. 22:22-29 

 I Corinthians 6:9,10

-Prostitution...................................Deut. 23:17

-Incest............................................Lev. 18:6-18

-Homosexuality.............................Romans 1:26, 27

-Mankind with beast......................Deut. 27:21

 

   A man or a woman who commits sexual perversion is definitely unwise. Such abominable sin brings forth degradation, shame, confusion and curse. A family member who is involved in sex perversion is a home destroyer. 

 

   A professing Christian who secretly involves himself in sexual perversion is a questionable one. True Christians must guard themselves from wicked imagination and questionable lifestyle so they may not be drawn to the deceitfulness of sexual perversion. Don't be a victim! Walk with the Lord and be a victor! 

 

(III)        The Judgment Upon Those Who Commit Sexual Perversion

Leviticus 18:22-28    Leviticus 20:13-16     

 

-Reprobate mind......... Romans 1:28

-Uncleanness...............Romans 1:24

-Curse..........................Deuteronomy 27:20-23

-Destruction..................I Corinthians 5:1-5

-Death..........................Romans 1:32

-Lake of fire.................Revelation 21:8

 

   Sexual perversion is an abominable sin that brings shame and destruction. It could destroy a person, families and even Christian ministries. Christians should discern and avoid the many faces of sexual perversion before they become deeply involved in such shameful sin.

 

   It is high time to seriously warn our children, young people, older people and servants of God not to yield their lives to sexual perversion. In Romans 1:32, it is written, Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. (KJV)

 

   As we see people and ministries being destroyed by the devil, may our well-spoken commitment to live a holy life be not a camouflage to cover secret sins before men, but may it be a genuine and deep commitment for the glory of God.

 

   In I Peter 1:14-16, it is written, As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. (KJV) May others see the Holy One through our lives.
