Until that time, remember that your bodies are created with the same dignity as the Master’s body. You wouldn’t take the Master’s body off to a whorehouse, would you? I should hope not. 1 CORINTHIANS 6:15, MSG There is a sense in which sexual sins are different from all others. In sexual sin we violate the sacredness of our own bodies, these bodies that were made for God-given and God-modeled love, for “becoming one” with another. Or didn’t you realize that your body is a sacred place, the place of the Holy Spirit?

Can you walk barefoot on hot coals and not get blisters? It’s the same when you have sex … Touch her and you’ll pay for it. No excuses. PROVERBS 6:26–29, MSG The LORD hates people with twisted hearts, but he delights in those who have integrity. You can be sure that evil people will be punished, but the children of the godly will go free. PROVERBS 11:20–21, NLT Don’t you know that those who do wrong will have no share in the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, who are idol worshipers, adulterers, male prostitutes … none of these will have a share in the Kingdom of God.

You wouldn’t take the Master’s body off to a whorehouse, would you? I should hope not. 1 CORINTHIANS 6:15, MSG There is a sense in which sexual sins are different from all others.
