It seems some churches avoid talking about sin. Some have quit talking about it for a couple of generations now. Is it any wonder that some 'Christians' don't even know what is sin and what isn't anymore?

Fornication -- what is it? It's just a fancy word that means two unmarried people having sex together.
This is sometimes confused with adultery -- but adultery is where one or both of the people involved
is married, but not to the person they are having sex with.

It seems that what is of great necessity these days is what the disciples did after learning from Christ in (Mark 6:12).

Keeping / presenting our body holy to the Lord has to be taught from the pulpit. It is not something a working brain can always deduce.

Very important to know how to not get in trouble with God; DENY THE FLESH, the LUST of it and the PRIDE of this life. Amen

Seek Him; He will lead you in the Way of righteousness and HE will teach us ALL things. Amen
