A4P Guest: I have a quick question. So, my girlfriend is an Ethiopian girl. I love her very much and she loves me too. So, my question is this: What’s wrong with having sex before marriage? I don’t think we need to sanctify our flesh here on earth since the Bible says, “flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Corinthians 15:50) and “The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing,” (John 6:63). So, as long as my girlfriend and I keep our soul and spirit holy, sex should be an okay thing since it is done on the flesh. So, can you give me few more verses to go over with my girlfriend since she is struggling to accept this truth?
Thank you Matt Redman for this excellent and uplifting song about heaven!
Have you ever asked yourself why we don’t usually hear so much about heaven today?
Why do we always find ourselves to be attracted to speakers who are telling us that they have all the solutions/answers to all our earthly struggles and problems which the Bible calls “light and momentary troubles”? When they tell us that there is a carefree life, a life that is easy and free from pain and suffering, we believe them. The only thing we demand from them is for them to call the name of “Jesus” and quote the Bible here and there, then we give them all we got, our hearts and minds.
I really don’t know.
Listen what the Bible says: “For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.” (2 Corinthians 2:17)
Eternal glory that far outweighs all our sufferings!
Amazing, isn’t it?
“If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.” (1 Corinthians 15:19)
“We are of all people” – means from all people who don’t believe in Jesus, people who are heading to hell rejecting God and His word, from all these people, we are the most to be pitied if our hope in Christ is only for this life.
God forbids for us to be Christians who are the most to be pitied.
Wow! What irony!
Christians and most to be “pitied.”
No! No! No! These two terms don’t go together! ///
When we read stories, books or biographies of Martin Luther, John Owen, John Bunyan, C. S. Lewis, Augustine, John Edwards and more – we notice something common about them all; that is, all of them have battled against sin and all of them had lost the battle, big time!
