The Results Of Adultery And Fornication

10 Strangers will consume your wealth, and someone else will enjoy the fruit of your labor.
11 In the end you will groan in anguish when disease consumes your body.
Proverbs 5:10-11 (NLT)

Proverbs 5 focused on sexual relationship outside the institution of marriage. I used 2 terms in the title, “adultery” and “fornication”. Adultery is the situation where either one of the partners is married while fornication is where both are not married. If you compare both sins, adultery is comparatively worse because it can destroy families. However, that does not mean fornication is beneficial in any way.

What causes sexual sin in the first place?

Let us start from the basics. God is the one who designed our body system in the first place. We were designed to be sexual beings. God made us men and women. Sexual relationship is ordained by God and is holy. The idea of sexual relationship is evil and holiness means abstaining from it is nothing more than the perversion of religion. God had never made such statement. In the eyes of God, sexual relationship between a man and a woman is holy. However, it is only to be established within the institution of marriage. In other words God’s will, for sexual relationship can only be inside the institution of marriage.

Sexual relationship outside this institution is sin because it causes harm. Proverbs 5:10-11 tells us that this sin can result in people getting poor and sick. This is why it is sin. God wants us to be rich and healthy, sin causes us to be poor and sick. God wants us to avoid sins because sins will take away our health and wealth. How do sexual sins make us poor and sick?

While there are people who look good enough to attract willing partners for their adultery, most people have to pay for it. The term for this trade is prostitution. Policy on the legality of prostitution differs among the nations. Based on my information the United States officially banned prostitution and made it illegal but I don’t think that makes her clean. Prostitution only moved and thrived underground. Why is that so? Answer: The Law Of Demand And Supply. Where there is a demand, there will be people who want to profit from it by supplying it.

In Singapore, we tolerate it. We allow it to exist within strict boundaries. This does not mean we think it is good. We don’t make it illegal because we know prostitution can never be effectively banned. Why? The demand is always there. Making it illegal will only drives it underground. In doing so, we will have trouble containing it and deal with the diseases that come with it. Furthermore, prostitution is a lesser evil compared to rape. It is a lesser evil for people to visit prostitutes than to rape.

Let us get back to the Bible. Proverbs 5:10 tells us this sin can consume our wealth. Whether it is conducted in a commercial or social environment, sexual sin will always drain our wealth. It makes us poorer. The fruits of our labor will be gone. Others will enjoy them instead of us. So, if the devil has planted some temptations in your mind to commit sexual sins, you should ask yourself, “Am I going to give up my prosperity just for a short moment of fun?” You have to remind yourself that prosperity from God is more fun than the adultery you are tempted to commit. Not only that, the prosperity from God does not give you negative side effect. It will not destroy your family, reputation nor give you disease.

Proverbs 5:11 tells us an even worse result for sexual sins. It can result in disease. In today’s term, we call it sexually transmitted disease. It had been there a long time ago even before the discovery of Aids.

There were religious people who said that sexually transmitted disease is God’s way of punishing people for committing sexual sins. That is a lie from the pit of hell. My God does not infect people with disease to punish them for their sins. According to the Bible, Jesus took away all our sickness and diseases at the Cross. How can God gives us disease when he sent Jesus to take away all our sickness and diseases? How can God use disease to punish us for our sins when he sent Jesus to die at the Cross, to pay for the penalty of all our sins? This is why religious doctrines are disease by themselves and the religious preachers are the carriers. If you want to live a life that is pleasing to God, stay away from religious churches.

The truth is, God does not want us to commit sexual sins because he does not want our families to be broken, our wealth to be drained and our health to be destroyed. He does not want us to be infected by any diseases including the sexually transmitted types. He did not cause it. The culprit who caused people to suffer sickness and disease is Satan not God. Religious people may not want to acknowledge this but the Bible has made it clear that Jesus came for our abundant lives.

10The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).
John 10:10 (Amplified)

In conclusion, we do not commit sins like adultery and fornication because we have great and satisfying lives in front of us. We don’t have to succumb to sins because there are beneath us. The moment we accepted Jesus as our Saviour, we were born again in a new species. This is a species of God. We are gods. As gods, our future is a life of abundance, abundant to the full till it overflows. Sin is not worthy of us.

    This rationalisation is fundamentally flawed in many ways:
    – fornication and adultery are detestable because they are ways in which one person takes advantage of and or lies to another person made in the ‘image’ of God, and thus clouds that image.
    -God allows certain things in our lives( illness, etc) in order that we would be compassionate towards the sufferings of others and totally dependent upon the grace of God.
    -yes, God hates divorce, adultery, and fornication. It destroys families and nations. We must never forget the reason Christ came and died, to have victory over sin and death, and to show us the way of forgiveness, NOT to keep us free from illness or poverty. These things will always be with us until He returns. To be able to appropriate Gods gift of forgiveness in our lives is the most powerful path to Gos’s idea of healing and abundance the world will ever know! When you learn to forgive, you learn to live!

    I will pray for God to give you more disease so that you can be more compassionate.

    You have been hurt. You have been betrayed by someone whom you loved and whom you trusted and it’s easy for me or anyone else to say anything… but all that I will say is that I can feel for you. Bad things will happen to us in this world but God will lead us through it all, He will never let us walk alone. Forgive your wife. It can be a hard thing to do but it is possible and it brings healing and restoration in our lives. I once heard a story about a boy who put nails in the fence each time he burst out with anger and then when there was no more room for new nails, he started pulling the old ones out but the fence still had marks that were left from the nails. It’s the same with Jesus. Each time we do something wrong we put another nail in his flesh but He has forgiven us…. still the scars remain. The scars are there to tell a story of love, forgiveness, acceptance and healing. It’s the same with us. We all have our scars but they all can turn into a beautiful story of love and forgiveness. I pray and hope that your marriage will be restored. Snjezana from Bosnia

    23The man said, “This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.” 24For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.
    Genesis 2:23,24

    One man and one woman is one flesh.
