2 Steps to Sexual Sin

Sexual Sin is a Two Step Process - It's No Accident
People who sin sexually often say they were caught off guard and overwhelmed in a moment of passion.

But that’s never the case. There are at least two steps:

Step 1. Immoral desire:
Extramarital sex begins in the mind with lustful thoughts. Thoughts can be sinful even if they are never acted upon (Matthew 5:28). But thoughts often lead to actions.

“For out of the heart come evil thoughts--murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.” Matthew 15:19

"Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin…” James 1:15

Step 2. Refusing God’s "exit plan":
God promises to give us a way out of any temptation (1 Corinthians 10:13). But we must take it.

Sexual sin isn’t an overpowering passion, an accident, or a mistake. It’s a premeditated, sinful choice. Don't make it!

  1. I was told once to avoid sexual sin, do not touch, or kiss in a way that requires a response. Such as, a light kiss on the cheek, does not require a response. A side hug, not a full frontal hug, locking 2 fingers together rather than arms over shoulders while walking together. See a touch that requires no response. Because one response leads to another and another. Then you've got sexual sin.
