Nine Reasons Not To Fornicate 1 Cor. 6:9-20

1.) Those who practice sin will not inherit the kingdom of God. “Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.” (vss. 9,10)   

2.) You were washed, sanctified and justified from such sin. And such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God.” (vs. 11) 

3.) Don’t under the control of anything outside Christ. All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything.” (vs. 12)

4.) The body is for the Lord, not fornication. Food is for the stomach, and the stomach is for food; but God will do away with both of them. Yet the body is not for immorality, but for the Lord; and the Lord is for the body.” (vss. 13,14)   

5) You are joined to the body of Christ. “Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? May it never be!” (vs. 15) 

6.) We are commanded to flee from it. “Flee immorality.” (vs. 18)   

7.) It is sin against the body. “Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body.” (vs. 18)   

8.) You are the Temple of the Holy Spirit. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?” (vs. 19)  

9.)  “You have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.” (vs. 20)
