Parenthood (2010 TV series) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
We cannot guarantee the salvation of our children by our own godly advice, but we can ensure that our responsibilities of parenthood are fully discharged. With the greater integration of family life which has come through the Christian development of marriage into one man and one wife, there are ample opportunities, especially where both partners are in the one faith, of obeying the ancient and still valid command of Moses:
“These words which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: and thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up” (Deut. 6:7).
– Harry Tennant, The Man David, pages 96-97
In this article is looked at man having his desires expressed in physical actions. It looks at what man does with his body.
The article also warns us that our lives as Christians should be a living witness to others and that we cannot break the laws of God without hindering others from coming to Christ.
We must live our lives in purity before a sinful and wicked world. We should not be living according to their standards but according to God’s standard in the Bible. No couple should live together outside the bonds of marriage.
It reminds us that
As Christians, the goal of any relationship should be to cause the people in our lives to love and know the Lord better.
Today we may find lots of people just living together to have sexual pleasure, living to please their own lust and selfish desires.
This type of life style is destructive and especially so for children whose parents are living a bad example before them. No wonder our children are confused about right and wrong when parents degrade the sanctity of marriage by living together out of wedlock. How can living together cause children to love and honor God when their parents break the laws of God before them because they are lustful?
The dictionary meaning of the word “fornication” means any unlawful sexual intercourse including adultery.
In the Bible the Greek definition of the word “fornication” means to commit illicit sexual intercourse.
The Bible also lists whore-mongers as fornicators.
What constitutes unlawful sex? Whose laws do we live by? Worldly standards or laws many times do not always line up with the Word of God. The founding fathers of various nations established many laws that were originally based on Christian standards and the laws of the Bible. However, through time they have drifted far from these standards and at the present our moral standards are shocking. Immorality is a world-wide epidemic. Societies throughout history and around the globe have embraced sexual standards that are called sins in the Bible.
The Bible must be our standard of what is right and wrong. We must change our standards if we do not want the wrath of God to fall on us.

1 Corinthians 6:18-20 & 1 Corinthians 7:1-2
“Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.”
