Ephesians 5:5-6

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 5 For of this you can be sure, that no sexually immoral, or impure, or covetous person, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. [The peoples of the earth have ignored these perfectly clear behaviors, (sexual immorality, impurity, covetousness), that exclude any and all from the kingdom. From the Word of the Lord within: "Ephesians 5:5-6: This the void of the earth, made perfectly clear. Those who are immoral have no inheritance in God's kingdom." Paul just told us that covetousness is idolatry. So whatever we value or want without genuine need, we worship; and how one spends their free time defines their devotion. From the Word of the Lord within: "you must learn to hate everything you worship."]

 6 Let no man deceive you with vain words. For because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient.1 [Paul warns you not to be deceived by anyone who tells you differently, (e.g., that your sexual immorality, impurity, and covetousness is excused by believing in Jesus), which is what the preachers of Christianity do; but even the demons believe in Jesus. It is only by waiting on the Lord to hear and obey his commands that one can become pure, free of sexual immorality, and free of covetousness. From the Word of the Lord within: "The way is clear: listen and obey."]

Acts 15:29

 29 That you abstain from foods sacrificed to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from sexual immorality.3 For if you keep yourselves free from these things, you will do well. Farewell." [Only sexual immorality still applies to most modern cultures. The Word of the Lord within spoke to sexual immorality being the one surviving rule that applies to today's Christians just starting the journey out of darkness to a sinless state.So you could say, avoiding sexual immorality is the one big rule you must follow in the beginning. And yet, most who name themselves Christians are watching television shows, movies, and DVD's, which promote sexual immorality; reading books and magazines that celebrate sexual immorality; visiting porno web sites, and much worse.]
