Ten People Who Will Not Go to Heaven

I Corinthians 6:9-11

September 2010

Tonight, I want to look at an extremely important passage. It is found in I Corinthians 6:9-11. It answers the question, Who will NOT be in heaven? Jesus explained who will inherit the kingdom (Matthew 5:3, 10; Mark 10:14). Paul tells us who will not inherit the kingdom.

Paul gives us in this passage a list of people who will EXCLUDED from the kingdom. They won’t go to heaven. If you want to know who is NOT going to Heaven, all you have to do is to look at this list that Paul gives us. A. T. Robertson calls this “a roll call of the damned.”

Some of these groups of people may be found on some church membership rolls but they will not be found in Heaven’s rolls. Their names will be absent from the Book of Life. There are ten groups of people that will not be in heaven.

What are the sins that made Paul’s list of top ten in I Corinthians 6? Are you on the list? I want to look at these ten sins and make some general observations about them. I am going to list the ten classes of sinners. Every Bible translates these words slightly different.

I Corinthians 6:9-10 says, “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God” (NKJV).

Ten Sinners Not in Heaven

1) Sexually Immoral

2) Idolaters

3) Adulterers

4) Effiminate

5) Homosexuals

6) Thieves or Robbers

7) Greedy or Covetous

8) Drunkards (substance abusers)

9) Slanderers (verbal abusers)

10) Swindlers or Extortioners

General Observations about this List

1) Many of these sins are perfectly LEGAL

Most of the sins on this list are legal. Greed is legal. Idolatry is legal. Stealing and slander are not legal. The lesson here is that what is legal is not necessarily moral. What you are allowed to do is not necessarily what you should do.

2) Many of these sins are COMMON in our day

Paul’s list is up-to-date, even though it was written two thousand years ago. These sins were common in Paul’s day and they are still common to this day. The lesson here is that what many are doing, what most people are doing (in some cases) is not what you should do. That is undemocratic. The majority is not always right. What is popular is not necessarily right. That is why Paul says in Romans that we are not to be conformed to the world (Romans 12).

3) Many of these sins are SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE

They are not considered wrong (e.g., fornication, homosexuality, greed). Homosexuality was accepted and tolerated in Paul’s and our day is no different. The Bible looks on it as a sin, not an alternative lifestyle. It is a sin that keeps people out of heaven.  Paul’s statement is completely counter-cultural.

Many of the things on his list are not regarded as wrong today.  Homosexuality is socially acceptable.  Gay marriage is legal in the US.  Drunkenness is regarded as a sickness or a disease by the medical community. It is just an addiction that people have. You may have an addiction to coffee, while someone else has an addiction to alcohol and alcoholics can’t control their drinking. Is this a valid argument?

The Bible does not look on drunkenness as a sickness but as a sin. Interesting, none of the other things mentioned in Paul’s list are diseases. Adultery is NOT a disease. Idolatry is NOT a disease. Greed is NOT a disease. Theft is NOT a disease.

All of the other nine things mentioned are MORAL CHOICES. Why would God keep people out of heaven because of a disease? We can call drunkenness what the world calls it or what God calls it. The Bible calls drunkenness as a work of the flesh. It is a work of the sin nature. The Bible does NOT say that drinking keeps you out of the kingdom of heaven. The Bible does NOT say, “Don’t drink wine” but it does say “Don’t be DRUNK with wine” (Ephesians 5:18).

Jesus drank wine. Paul drank wine. They were Jews. It was part of their culture. The Corinthians drank wine. They were getting drunk at the communion table. What the Bible condemns is not the use but the abuse of alcohol. In the same way it does not condemn sex. God was the one who created it. There is nothing wrong with it (Hebrews 13:4). The Bible only condemns the abuse of sex.

3) Some sins in the list are REPEATED

Paul gives two different words for stealing (robbers and extortioners or swindlers). Thieves will not be in heaven. The Greek word that Paul for thieves is κλέπτης (from which we get the word “kleptomaniac”). The Bible says that Judas was a thief (John 12:4-6). He was the treasurer for Jesus and the Apostles. Apparently, he did not just do it once, he did it continually.

Last week, we saw some in the Corinthian Church who were stealing from other people in the church. They were ripping them off. Paul reminds us that robbers will not be in heaven. When we think of a swindler, we think of someone like Bernie Maydoff who defrauded people of billions of dollars.

Paul gives two different words for homosexuality (effeminate, homosexuals), The first word (μαλακοί) is a little broader than just homosexuality but would include the passive homosexual partner.

4) Many of these sins fall into different CATEGORIES

What are some of the categories mentioned in this list? Most of them (seven in particular) are either sex sins or money sins. You might call it sexual immorality or financial immorality.

One is a RELIGIOUS sin

Idolaters are people who worship a false god, people who have a false religion. They may actually be moral but they worship a false god. Their fate will be the lake of fire (Revelation 21:8).

One is a VERBAL sin

“Revilers” refers to people who say all kinds of hateful things out of their mouth and are verbally abusive. That made the top ten list. There are many people who wouldn’t think of committing some gross sexual sin but do this all the time. They insult and ridicule people. Some political commentators and people in the media are guilty of this. It is the Greek word for a slanderer (λοίδορος). Are you a reviler? Do you slander people? When Jesus was reviled and insulted, he did not revile people back (I Peter 2:23). We are not even supposed to associate with professing Christians who are revilers (I Corinthians 5:11).

One is a FOOD sin

Paul mentions drunkards. John Calvin thought this applies to over eating (gluttony) as well. I usually agree with John Calvin but I think he is wrong here. Getting drunk, getting completely stoned and wasted is not like eating one too many French Fries at MacDonald’s. Alcohol is not only a beverage, it is a drug.

Four are SEXUAL sins

Almost half of the sins on the list are sexual (two of the sins deal with heterosexuals and two deal with homosexuals).  Paul mentions fornicators, adulterers, homosexuals, and sodomites. In fact, adulterers and homosexuals sound very similar in the Greek text. One is μοίχοί and one is μαλακοί. There is no getting around that fact the passage here condemns homosexuality.  On the other hand, it is not the only sexual sin on the list.  The passage also condemns many heterosexuals.

One sin is a GENDER sin

It mentions feminized men, men who act like women or try to become women.

Three are FINANCIAL sin

They have to do with money.  Paul mentions thieves, greedy, and swindlers.

5) This list of vices is NOT exhaustive

Are these the only people who will not be in heaven? No. How do we know this? This is not a complete list. It doesn’t even mention murderers. They are mentioned in Revelation 21:8. Paul says this three times in the NT and each time his list is slightly different (cf. Galatians 5:19-21; Ephesians 5:3-7).

Four Lessons from I Corinthians 6:9-11

1) Many people think they are saved when they are not.

There is a serious warning in this passage and it is addressed to professing Christians. It is addressed to the Church at Corinth and the warning is this: “Do not be deceived”. Many think that they are going to heaven but they are actually going to hell. Many people in the Corinthians Church thought they were saved. They thought they were going to heaven. Many church members today have the same problem (cf. Matthew 7:21-23).

Many people think that they are carnal Christians when they are not Christians at all. If you go to church on Sunday but live like the devil the rest of the week, you are probably not saved. Some have even been taught the lie that if you are saved, you have eternal security and if you have eternal security, then it doesn’t matter how you live, because you are going to go to heaven anyway.

You might was well live like the devil. Paul would say that you are just deceiving yourself. The wicked will not inherit the kingdom. Just going to church, even regularly, and getting baptized will not save you. You can’t live any way you want and go to heaven. That is not eternal security. It is antinomianism.

2) When you get saved, there is a change in your life.

After giving this long list of sins, Paul says “and such were some of you”. Some of the Corinthians lived like this before they became Christians. That is what some of them WERE (past tense) but they are no longer that. There are different because at salvation three things happened. They were washed (which you need because sin makes you dirty and salvation makes you clean), sanctified (set apart to God positionally) and justified.

Note the three buts in the text. And such were some of you: BUT ye are washed, BUT ye are sanctified, BUT  ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God (I Corinthians 6:11 KJV).  The KJV follows the Greek text here. You can’t separate religion from morality. As James says, faith without works is DEAD. If you are genuinely saved, there is going to be a change in your life. If you are different on the inside and you have been genuinely saved, you will be different on the outside.

3) Not everyone will inherit the kingdom.

The Bible teaches that some will enter the kingdom and SOME WILL NOT. Some will possess the kingdom and some will be EXCLUDED. Some will inherit the kingdom and some will not. That refutes the doctrine of universalism. Universalism teaches that EVERYONE will one day be saved.

The Bible teaches that God loves everyone. God loves the world (John 3:16). The Bible also says that God does not want anyone to perish (I Timothy 2:3-4). It also teaches that many will perish. In fact, it says that MOST will perish (cf. Matthew 7:13-14). Paul says that many people will get in. Not all will enter the kingdom of God.

4) Even the worst sinners can be saved.

Paul said “such were some of you.” Some of the members of the Corinthians Church were former homosexuals. Some were adulterers. Some worshiped idols but then they got saved. Paul doesn’t say that all of the Corinthians lived like this before they were saved. He doesn’t even say that most of them did. He said that some of them used to live like that.

The lesson here is that God can save anyone – murderers, crack heads, prostitutes, and drunkards. This shows the power of the gospel. Real change is possible but it has nothing to do with Barack Obama or any other politician. This refutes the idea that “once gay always gay” or “once an alcoholic always an alcoholic”.

John Calvin pointed out over 500 years ago that even though Paul says that the wicked will NOT inherit the kingdom of God, technically the wicked CAN inherit the kingdom. People who do not know the Bible very well sometimes ask questions like, Can God saved murderers? Can God save homosexuals? Can God save prostitutes? The answer is that God can save everyone WHO REPENTS. Everyone one of the ten sins listed in I Corinthians 6:9 can be forgiven and has been forgiven.

Jesus said that all manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven (Matthew 12:31). Even the darkest sins that we can commit can be forgiven. The sin of sodomy can be forgiven.

That was a sin so wicked that God wiped out the entire city but even the wicked sodomites could have their sins forgiven by God if they repented and turned from their sins. The worst sin on the planet was crucifying Christ and the people who did this were told that if they repented, they would be saved.

Interesting Questions

1) Do you have to be sinless to go to heaven?

Paul does NOT say that you have to be sinless to go to heaven. Sinless perfection is not possible. You do have to have all of your sins forgiven to go to heaven but you do not have to live a sinless life to go to heaven. That is not even possible. Paul is not teaching a works salvation. The kingdom is not earned, it is inherited.

An inheritance is something that you get when you die as a gift. It is not something that you work for to receive. It is something that you get because you are part of the family. The Bible teaches that all believers are heirs (Ephesians 1: 14, 18; Colossians 1:12; 1 Peter 1:4; Acts 20:32); Romans 8:17 Titus 3:7)

2) Can a Christian commit any one of these sins?

He does NOT say that a Christian cannot commit one of these sins. Who is there who has never had a covetous thought? A true believer could commit any one of these sins.

There are examples in the Bible of believers committing some of these sins. David committed adultery. Solomon committed idolatry. He married all of those pagan wives and started building temples to pagan gods because he loved his wives so much.

Noah got drunk after the Flood. Samson committed sexual immorality. He was visiting prostitutes and he is the one who is listed in the great faith hall of fame in Hebrews 11. Ananias and Sapphira were guilty of greed. A Christian can commit any sin and still go to heaven but a Christian cannot habitually live like any of these sinful lifestyles and still go to heaven.

3) Does this teach that you can lose your salvation?

Some have used this passage to teach that you can lose your salvation. Does Paul teach that? He does NOT say that you will lose your salvation. He doesn’t say that if you commit these sins you will lose your inheritance and be disinherited.

He just says that if you commit these sins, you will not get an inheritance. An inheritance is only for members of the family. The implication is that you were never saved. He doesn’t say anything about losing an inheritance.

4) Can you be gay and be a Christian?

Entire books written on a topic on both sides.  Some say you can be gay and be a christian.  We talk about gay evangelicals today.  We have not only GAY CHRISTIANS today, we have GAY CHURCHES.  We have GAY DENOMINATIONS.  We have GAY MINISTERS.  Others say you cannot be gay and be a Christian.  The question is not, what do people think about this question but what does the Bible say?  What does God say about this question?

What the Bible says is completely counter-cultural.  It is different from what society says.  It is different from what modern psychology says.  It is different from what the news media and entertainment industry says.  God’s thoughts are NOT our thoughts (Isaiah 55:8-9).  Jesus says, “What is HIGHLY ESTEEMED among men is DETESTABLE in God’s sight” (Luke 16:15-16).

Paul says in this passage that homosexuals will NOT enter the kingdom. These are not my words.  I did not write them.  The Bible says that they will NOT go to heaven.  Paul does not say if people do these things, they will not get any rewards in heaven.  He says that they will not be there.  He also says that a lot of heterosexuals will NOT be there either.  Scripture does not single out only homosexuals.

That is not to say that Christians can fall into all types of sins, including sexual sins and even homosexual sins.  Christians can fall into adultery and even murder.  King David committed adultery and murder but he repented.  He was not a serial adulterer.

This passage is not talking about people who struggle with and fall into a particular sin but continue in that sin and even justify it  and claim it is not even a sin and reinterpret the Bible to justify their sin.  They say that God made them that way and make the Bible to say what they want it to say.

It is one thing to reject the Bible and its clear teaching on a variety of topics.  It is quite another matter to claim to be a Christian and accept the Bible as the inspired, authoritative Word of God but to live completely contrary to what it teaches and justify that behavior.  The latter claim to believe the Bible but revise and reinterpret it, making it say something that it does not say.  A gay christian is biblically an oxymoron.

    I dont want to ask this but I have to. What about those who never are taught who Jesus is? For instance in forign lands where lets say budism is the religion, if they are never told or taught who Christ is, what will happen to there soul when they die? Does the Bible say what will happen to these people.

    Or would your answer be that if they were born in that situation then they must not be part of the elect? Cuz I know some people who would believe that, and while I lean more twords Arminiaism I gotta say its a preaty good answer if your calvanist.

      Gladys:

      There are two important points here to keep in mind.

      Point one, those who have never heard are lost and that is why we need to preach the gospel to all the world and have been given the Great Commission. If they were already saved, it would be better not to preach to them, because then they might reject the message. I have a brief comment on this in one of my other posts. See http://www.elonsmallgroup.com/objections-to-hell/ It is easy to find if you scroll down the post.

      Point two, if someone is open I believe God will send a missionary or a neighbor to speak to that person about Jesus. There is a biblical precedent for that in Acts 10-11. See http://www.elonsmallgroup.com/conversion-of-a-religious-man/ as well when you have time. It is worth looking at.

  2. Gladys says:

    If I may ask I know that we have forgive to be forgiven, at least I think that is the correct quote, but do we have to forgive ourselves? I mean I know I have had things I have repented of but I still feel unforgiven I know part of it could be beacause I dont really know i am forgiven but a big part of it is guilt for doing, saying, or thinking something in the first place, and while I do listen to religious radeo shows on the way to work. and I do not shy away a topic about the lord I even like talking about it and scripture I willingly start the conversation, and defend my faith when someone says something about it (when talking to people I know that is), but when I see people like the Duggards on 19 kids and counting, or when I see the 700 club I just feel horriabely about myself and turn the channel, Or when I think I believe I am saved I get this sick sinking feeling in my gut telling me I am not. wouldnt that be a sign of feeling guilty?

    • admin says:

      I am not sure how to answer all of this. Lets start with this question. You say, “when I see people like the Duggards on 19 kids and counting, or when I see the 700 club I just feel horriabely about myself and turn the channel”. Why do you do this? I wasn’t sure from your post? Do you feel convicted by watching these shows? If so, what convicts you? Or is something else going on?

  3. Gladys says:

    Well I guess I feel less deserving of salvation when I watch them. I dont know exactly what about them makes me feel that way, but yet I listen to religious radeo and I dont feel that way and I dont know why. I even sometimes have that same undersiving feeling when I listen to religious music, I feel as if I have done something that has put me past the point of forgiveness and I dont know why, I mean even when I strugled with the unforgivable sin, I had a sign I was forgiven even if I sometimes doubted the sign, so I dont think its that anymore, I mean it could be that I guess but I am wondering if I am so use to feeling that way that I just naturally do it now.

    • admin says:

      Sorry but I have more questions. You said that you listen to religious radio. What religious radio progframs do you listen to? Is it just music or sermons as well? I know you have given me your testimony before but I forgot it. Did you ever have a time in your life when you accepted Christ as Savior? What exactly did you do on that occasion (e.g., get bapotized, walk in the front of a church, say a prayer)? If so, what brought you to that point? Did you ever have any assurace of salvation afterwards? People who are unsaved feel uncomfortable in the presence of a group of Spirit-filled believers. They do not want to have anything to do with church. I do not know if this describes you or not. Again, I do not have all of the facts.

  4. Gladys says:

    sermons on the way to work though I dont know what station I am usually channel surffing when I find it, I do listen to religious music but sometimes I get that bad feeling like that music wasnt meant for me or something, but I dont have a bad feelings when I hear the radeo sermos I even like them. I think I have accepted christ I mean I believe in him and know him, but I dont know if believing is the same a being saved, I do like samll groups of people or even one on one conversations about the lord, I even am usually the one to start the conversation. But as for being in a large group I dont know if I would like it or not, I would like to go to church but I am still working that out with my mother though.

    I sometimes think people carry religion to far, and when I think that I feel bad about myself I wonder if its not that they are carrying it to far but that maby I am to worldly or not really a christian or something.

    • admin says:

      This sounds good. Keep doing what you are doing (listening to sermons, music and having contact with other believers). You are on the right track.

  5. Gladys says:

    Sorry I skipped over your what exactly did you do on that ocastion question, Well I dont remember how I came to be saved if I am saved that is , I remember telling my mom someone died for me and not long after that I started with the Abeka homeschooling program, it was a christian program.

    • admin says:

      That is good. The only thing I would add is this. You have to not only KNOW that Jesus died for your sins and rose from the dead but you have to ASK him to save you like the tax collector did in Luke 18:13 when he said “God have mercy on me a sinner”. The Bible says that “whosoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:13). Put another way, you not only have to believe in Christ, you have to RECEIVE him (John 1:12). Knowing about medicine will not help you unless you take it. You may have done these things. I just wanted to mention them.

  6. Gladys says:

    Sorry for the 3rd reply but I realized that I had skipped over one of your other questions. Did I ever have assurance of salvation after. Well I dont know exactly what you mean when you say assurance. If you mean like a sign or something then I dont recall anything like that. I mean I know I have prayed for something and it dosent happen right away but a month or even a year later It does though in a different way than I entended.
    Like when I was worrying over blasphamy of the holy spirit, I asked for a sign and when I went to arbys about a year and a half or two years after my worrying about it started I saw a little card on the table across from us. Thinkin it was a cupon I went to pick it up it was a picture of Jesus holding a man up and on the back was a quote about forgiveness.

    Or like a couple of weeks ago when I was worried about it again because I said the words out loud in explaining blasphamy of the holy spirit to my mom, about a week later I got this little token from a customer about jesus.
    I guess these could be signs but besides that I really couldnt say I have had any signs. At least none I noticed.

    Once again sorry for 3 answers, I would wait till you responded again but I know I would forget to even go back to the questio by then,. I have a horrid memmory.

    • admin says:

      What I meant by assurance of salvation is this. Do you know for sure you are saved or do you just hope you are saved? Have you ever had an assurance of salvation? The reason I ask is that the Bible teaches that we can know this. Unfortunately, not all Christians have an assurance of salvation.

  7. Gladys says:

    Wow took me so long to respnd,sorry well I have asked him to save my soul, and I have never had assurance of salvation, though as you said there are christans never have.

    • admin says:

      If you asked and genuinely meant it, you can have assurance based on God’s promise. God does not lie and cannot lie. It is impossible for Him to lie. Jesus said, “All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will NEVER cast out” (John 6:37). “EVERYONE who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:13).

  8. Gladys says:

    Wow I am sorry I just relized I drifted off of my original topic. I had completly forgot like the goober I am, so do you believe that you have to forgive yourself in order to be saved?

    • admin says:

      No. Not to be saved. Forgiving yourself is not a condition of salvation but if God has forgiven you, you should forgive yourself.

  9. Gladys says:

    Thank you :)

  10. Duncan says:

    I struggle with sin alot, as I’m sure most Christians do. I’ve accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior, and tried to follow the Bible. Here’s my problem though. I keep repenting for sins, and then find myself doing them over and over. I know that Paul says in Romans that he too struggled with sin, and he even admitted that he sinned even though he knew it was wrong.

    I have tried to have more self control, and move on from the guilt of sin. It just bothers me that I keep committing the same phyical sins, when I know in my heart that I want to change and overcome my weakness. I feel as though I may never enter the kingdom of heaven because of my mistakes. I pray for forgiveness from God, but then a day or week later. I’m right back where I started.

    • admin says:

      Good question, Duncan but it is hard to answer without more facts. Does your sin involve one of the ten mentioned in I Corinthians 6 or is this just a general question? Do you have an assurance of salvation but are just asking how to have victory over sin or are you unsure if you are saved?

      If you are a genuine believer but just struggle with victory over sin, it is a complicated topic. One suggestion for victory is not just avoid the sin but the source of the sin. Whatever causes us to sin should be removed (any person, place or thing). Jesus said, “If your right hand offend you, cut it off,” although he did not mean literally. It was a figure of speech.

      I knew a man once who was tempted every time he went by a certain video store on the way home from work, so he had to take a different route home to avoid the source of temptation. If the Internet becomes a source of temptation, it may need to have a filter with someone else who knows the password.

      You may also need to find a group of men in a local church to confide in. The Bible says to “confess your sins one to another”. It involves becoming vulnerable to someone what you can trust who is also willing to become vulnerable to you. That is easier to women to do but much harder for men to do. An accountability partner might help. Another option is to see a biblical counselor. Not sure if this is any help. Let me know if you have any other questions.

  11. Gladys says:

    Howdy again, I know we talked about people how never have a change to know Christ not being saved even if that isn’t there fault, still not sure how to feel about that but this question is just a tad different, I was watching CSI:Miami, and a thought occurred to me, what about babies? I mean there are babies that are aborted, miscarried, or just don’t survive after birth for some reason, and babies and toddlers that die in accidents like a car crash or house fire or something, what about there souls. I mean I guess its kind of the same as people who have never herd of Jesus, but different in the fact that babies and toddlers or even children of a young age don’t even have the mental capability to accept him as there savior, so would there souls be lost?

    • admin says:

      The Bible does not deal with this question directly but I happen to believe that all of those babies are saved. The Bible says, “Shall not the judge of all the earth do right?” Babies are incapable of exercising faith. II Samuel 12:22-23 is one passage used to support this idea. David lost a baby and believed that he would see that baby in the next life. Sorry. Do not know if this is much help.

  12. Gladys says:

    It was helpful I had done some research on the topic since posting my question, and I don’t remember the passage, but something about children coming of age when they know good and evil or something like that. Plus David stating he would be with his son again and know he went to heaven was mentioned many times as well. Thank you for you’re response.

  13. Beba says:

    HI, nice to meet you and thanks for your article. I have a question, I’m engaged to a guy and we are living together, I got pregnant from him last June and now our baby is about 6 months.

    Our relationship started to be troubled since I discovered he lied/lies on so many things, cos the things he did has been very painful to me. He ask for forgiveness and that he will not do anymore.

    Even if he does, I always give the hope that he will change, and accept Gesùs TRULY in his life (he is a “Christian”. For me I accepted God as my only God and Gesùs as my saviour at the beginning of this year. The person that introduced me to this is a friend and a “prophet”(but I dunno how much he is)and he always had a big influence on my mind with his speech. He was animist before.

    Anyway, when I met my actual boyfriend he said everything would have been fine. After I got pregnant he continued saying the same(my boyfriend asked to marry him,even if for burocracy for now we are not). He started to say everything will be fine only if accept Gesus then, and that he would have done. Eventually he did not do the way this my friend was saying.

    There has even been a quarrel between them, where my boyfriend decided not to talk to him anymore. Anyway, now what he started to say that the will of God is that me and this guy do not stay together. And that if I continue stay with him I’m against the will of God. Since he said this I’m living in a constant sense of sin and started to doubt about my salvation.

    Me and my boyfriend are working on our behavior and defects, we have a beautiful daughter, and we love each other anyway,and we would like to marry anyway. Is 3 months we stopped any sexual contact. I cannot understand how what this my friend says can be true. I’m very confused on everything, I feel I’m only a sinner.

    Thanks

    • admin says:

      Thanks for the letter and sharing your situation. I understand why your friend would say that the two of you should not live together if you are not married. That is what the Bible clearly teaches but, if the two of you would like to get married, you should. Marriage is part of God’s plan. Did I answer your question or am I missing something?
