Why Fornication is Defrauding One Another

Heaven Ministries

Fornication is considered fraud because God says so!! When a person has sex with another, who they are not married to or intend on marrying it is fraudóitís a scam and a ruse and sincere Christian men and women should not be partaking in it.

For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel (body) in sanctification and honour; Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the gentiles which know not God: That no man should go beyond (arouse lust and sexual desire) and defraud his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified. (1 Thessalonians 4:3-6)

Sincere Christian young men should not be chasing after the things of this world because they will get caught up in its lustfulness and desires that take him away from the love of God, truth and light.

Noah Webster 1828 Dictionary

Defraud Definition:

1. To deprive of right; either by obtaining something by deception or artifice, or by taking something wrongfully without the knowledge or consent of the owner; to cheat; to defraud a man of his right.

Noah Webster 1828 Dictionary

Fornicator Definition:

1. An unmarried person, make or female, who has criminal conversation with the other sex; also a married man who has sexual commerce with an unmarried women.

Fornication is a sin in the eyes of God just as adultery is for married couples. This is why dating is not scriptural. Dating is just a nice word for fraud. Unmarried single people go out on a date and most of the time they end up defrauding one another. But in Godís eyes, everyone is sinning who is fornicating.

Is This a Way to Raise Godly Sons?

Why are people, Christians too, so nonchalant about having sex without commitment and before marriage? It is the way they are raised to believe. They actually have been taught that having sex before marriage prepares them for manhood but it actually degrades their manhood! They are nonchalant because their relationship with Jesus Christ is nonchalant.

The relationship most people have with God is felt through the eyes of someone else. Some churchgoers have a relationship with God thru the pastor and sons and daughters through the eyes of their parents, peers and pastors. But this is the problem. Christ Ones must have their own growing, learning, spiritual relationship with Christ. If they did they would be more apt to follow Godís instruction for their Christian lives.

Sex without commitment and love means nothing. Its just sex. The bible clearly lets us know that fornicators will not inherit the kingdom of heaven. Fornication hurts people physically, emotionally and spiritually. 

Treat younger men as brothers, older women as mothers, and younger women as sisters, with absolute purity! (1 Timothy 5:1-2)
