Are Sexual Sins the Worst Kind?


Check out Gary Curtis’ related article, “We Must Avoid Sexual Sins and Scandals,” at this link.

Some contend that God sees all sins as the same and that one sin is not more difficult for God to forgive than another. While they may think that sounds reasonable and righteous, it ignores the admonitions of revealed Scripture and how sexual impurity damages us personally, weakens our witness and can be destructive to the family of God.

Pastor Jack Hayford, respected author, songwriter and church leader, once wrote, “I believe that sex sins are worse in that they are more damaging personally and socially than all other sins.” Hayford also observed that sexual sins may be the entry points of many other sinful actions, thoughts and lifestyles. “I don’t believe that any other sin can be said to devastate believers so thoroughly as sexual sin,” he said.

Sexual intercourse is more than a biological experience or experiment. It is more than just another physical act, like drinking water or sneezing. It involves the communion of life itself and is to be shared only under the covering of a covenant of commitment (Eph. 5:30-31).

If a believer, who is “washed … sanctified … justified” and filled with the Spirit of Christ  (1 Cor. 6:11), would be so crass as to commit sexual immorality casually in what some have termed “recreational sex,” he or she would literally be contaminating the body of Christ by involving Him in immorality. It is an unthinkable proposition and one of the primary reasons that, for believers, sexual sins are worse than others (1 Cor. 6:12-17).

“Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body. Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body” (1 Cor. 6:18-20, NLT).

It is due to the constant temptation to sexual immorality that Paul advises, “each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband” (1 Cor. 7:2b). The writer to the scattered Messianic Hebrews warned: “Give honor to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage. God will surely, judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery” (Heb. 13:4).
