The local church does the opposite.   Instead of knowing  Christians for their love,  they know us by a list anti-nudity and anti-sexual rules,  and by who they hate,  

They hate sexual freedom based on their wrong, Tradition of Men, sexual definitions.

If you try hard to apply there, Tradition of Men, sexual definition to all the verse in the Bible they do not fit. The , Tradition of Men,  wrong sexual definition create many contradictions and Change the Plan of Salvation.


they change the plan of salvation


Because of there wrong Definition for fornication,  they change the plan of salvation,

 to say,  you have to accept Christ as personal Savior PLUS be anti sexual freedom. 


Fornicators do not go to heaven per the Bible. So if you use the Church's wrong  definition for fornication,  you end up sending everyone who has sex out side the one man, one female marriage to hell. (maybe over 80%++ population, including 80% so called,  Christians.  

All because they have the wrong definition for fornication. There definition for fornication is clearly 100% wrong.  Common sense tells you that something is wrong here.


They also want to tell you that there are 10 different meanings for the word fornication, which is totally wrong. Again common sense tells you something is wrong with this.


I discovered the one and only correct definition for fornication by correctly studying the Whole Bible in correct context. By letting the Bible definite the word,  you end up with the correct definition,  that will fit all verses and creates no contradiction and does not change the plan of salvation in any way. Also has one definition only,  not 10 different meaning.


I discovered the correct definition for fornication from 1 Cor 10:8 Where Paul tell the Corinth Christians  that they are doing fornication just like the Jewish people in the past did and 23,000 died. 

Then when you go back and read Nu 25:1-9 you discover what the meaning of fornication is. In Nu 25: 1-9 in context,  describes the definition for Fornication per St. Paul. 


The correct definition is Nu 25: 1-9 describes the people both single and married joining in with the worship of a fertility pagan god which part of the worship was a sex orgy to worship the pagan fertility god. For given the promise of good farm crops, more reproductive animals, and more human productivity. All which will get lot more income.


The major issues here is the worship of this pagan fertility god was a major violation of the first commandment of God. This makes God very angry. God told them to never worship any God but him because HE is the only true GOD, there are none others.

The church greatly minimize even ignores it, the worship of a fertility pagan Baal god and they put all there major focus on the sex orgy. To GOD it is the opposite.  If you study the Bible you clearly see the major problem to God is the major violation of the  first commandment to worship only Creator God himself. Sex was only the bait to get them to worship the pagan fertility god.

The correct definition of the word fornicationu, Bible defined, is found in Number 25.  Paul in 1 Cor 10:8 used the word, "fornication" and defines the word fornicationu by referring back to Number 25, which describes the meaning of "fornication" correctly. 


Fornication defined As using your, God given sexual freedom, (God gave all creation sexual freedom at creation),  to  the joining in with sex orgy to worship the pagan fertility god, one of Baal's many pagan gods of that day, in hope of getting better farm crops and more fertile animals and personal fertile to have lots of Children,  hoping to earn a lot of money as a results.

1 Corinthians 10:8


Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.

 
Numbers 25:1   


And Israel abode in s h i t t i m     , and the people began to commit whoredom ()  with the daughters of Moab.     #### = s h i t t i m 
25:2
And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods: and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods. 
25:3
And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel. 
 25:9And those that died in the plague were twenty and four thousand. 


The man made Bible dictionaries only reflex how people use or misuse a word and has a wrong and misleading definition.


The Bible, itself, clearly defines this word correctly for us. (not the corrupt  man made dictionary.)


At creation God gave all creation sexual freedom to have many sex partners over a life time  to all creation at creation include humans. King David  2 Sam 12:8, King Solomon SOS 6:8     unlimited sex partner    given at creation to all creation by God.
 
 Men sexual freedom was limited only by Adultery and   Fornication   by not using sexual freedom to have sex as part of worship to a pagan fertility god as we see  fornication in Both the OT and NT  in Numbers 25:1-9 and 1 Cor 10:8.


Fornication was in the whole Bible time both OT and NT times a major problem in a major religion of the Bible times.


 They were surrounded by Baal fertility pagan god worshipers in both OT and NT. 

Fornication Described in both OT Numbers 25: 1-9 and in NT  2 Cor 10:8. 


Nu 31:17  shows God is very pro-polygamy even with young pagan girls is OK,  BUT NOT OLD pagan women which joined in with the pagan fertility pagan god worship sex orgy and are set in their pagan fertility god thinking and pagan fertility god worshiping  ways.


In Nu 31:17 God gave 32,000 pagan young girls from the pagan families,  as concubines to Israelite' s  that they did NOT join in the pagan fertility god sex orgy worship of the fertility pagan god, part of the many gods of Baal worship.

 
Nu 31:17 
31:17 "Now kill all the boys . And kill every woman who has slept with a man, (join in worship pagan fertility god sex orgies to worship pagan god as in Nu 25: 1-9) but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man."
(virgins that proven that they did not join in worship pagan fertility god sex orgy part of Baal worship to pagan fertility god) (From the NIV Bible, Numbers 31:17)"

Baal worship had many pagan gods: sun god, moon god, many other gods, one of them was a Fertility pagan god where in worship by having  a sex orgy to worship the fertility god to get promise of good farm crop and lots of fertility in crops, animals, and themselves be fertile. More fertility means lot more money.


If wives join in sex with others without the husband's permission ahead of time, would be adultery. Wife swapping is ok, if  with permission from husband or father by mutual agreement mutual permission honoring his authority over his owned women (wives or daughters or concubines).


At creation God gave all creation sexual freedom to have many sex partners over a life time  to all creation at creation include humans. King David  2 Sam 12:8, King Solomon SOS 6:8 unlimited sex partner given at creation to all creation by God.


Two limitations to the  sexual freedom: No fornication (defined above) and no adultery (honor the man authority over his owned women) but wife swapping is ok that is not adultery, but done by mutual agreement.  Or loaning your wife to another man is ok and not adultery. Adultery is without any mutual agreement or mutual permission.


Women sexual freedom is limited by male authority over her. Husbands or fathers can give her as much sexual freedom as they want to. Like wife swapping, or open marriage, or letting her have sex with a friend with permission.  If no male authority over her then she also would have unlimited sexual freedom as the all other were given at creation.


1 Corinthians 10:8


Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.

 
Numbers 25:1


And Israel abode in s h i t t i m , and the people began to commit whoredom ()  with the daughters of Moab.   (#### = s h i t t i m )
25:2
And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods: and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods. 
25:3
And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel. 
 25:9And those that died in the plague were twenty and four thousand. 

Fornication


Fornication was the using of your body to have sex with a cultist pagan temple prostitute join in pagan sex orgy worship another pagan fertility god, deity. Giving your mind and body to worship another pagan deity. To worship a pagan  fertility god so they could have the promise to get good farm crops.


God designed sexuality and said it was very good. What is bad is using your body sexuality to worship a pagan fertility god and having sex with women who are worshiping pagan fertility idols and other pagan deities. This make God very angry.


Compare, 1 Cor 10:8 to Numbers 25:1-9 This is what Paul was referring to.
1 Cor. 10:8  Neither let us commit fornication, (Fornication or porneia or sexual immoral) as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.


Fornication is clearly described in Nu 25. Which is where Paul is referring to Fornication.


Numbers 25:9  And those that died in the plague were twenty and four thousand
NU 25:1  And Israel abode in s h i t t i m  and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab.   (#### = s h i t t i m )

Wrong Definitions create MANY MANY Divorces



Wrong Definitions create MANY MANY Divorces. So Church's false teaching create MANY MANY Divorces. 

 Matt 5:32  (Remember the gospels were still under  the Age of The Law. The law states they had to go to the priest to get divorced . Many were not going to the priest, because they did not go to the priest for divorce they were still married and if the remarry that is adultery.)
But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery : and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery .


Matt 19:9  (Remember the gospels were still under  the Age of The Law. The law states they had to go to the priest to get divorced . Many were not going to the priest, because they did not go to the priest for divorce they were still married and if the remarry that is adultery.)
And I say unto you , Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery : and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery .

By having the wrong definition for fornication it create MANY Divorces which shall not be a divorce at all.

In Ex 21: 10-11

If the master married many wives he must meet all the wives sexual needs or they may go free. Ex 21:10  (other men can help him do that)

Ex 21:10  " If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. 11 If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment. "

Another verse that proves they have thewrong definition for adultery and fornication.

Today if a married man has sex with another women they call that adultery. But Ex 21: 10 does not call that adultery. Shall not result in divorse at all, per the Bible. But today church's wrong definition result in divorce.

 

So wrong definitions great increases the Divorce rate.

 

This may be a reason in Ex 21: 4 master would sexually LOAN some of his wives to a servant so he would not lose his wives,  because he personally,  could not meet all his many wives sexual needs.

Swingers in the Bible Swinging NOT a Sin

 

 

Sharing wife with another is ok and is not adultery or sin of any kind Per Exodus 21:4 in the Bible.

 

Bible Exodus 21:4 --"If his master gave him (servant) a wife (loans him one of his wives) while he was a slave, and they had sons or daughters, then the man (servant) will be free in the seventh year, but his (master's loaner wife) wife and children will still belong to his master.”

 

Also look at Exodus 21:10 --- WHY a master may share many of his wives with other men. -- To avoid losing them.

you who inflame yourselves among the oaks, under every green tree; who kill the children in the valleys, under the clefts of the rocks?

 

 

 

 

 

·                     Nahum 3:4 NIV

all because of the wanton lust of a harlot, alluring, the mistress of sorceries, who enslaved nations by her prostitution and peoples by her witchcraft.

 

 

·                     1 Peter 4:3 NIV

For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to do--living in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry.

 

 

 

·                     1 John 2:16 NKJ

For all that is in the world--the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life--is not of the Father but is of the world.

And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

 

1 John 2:16

1 John 2:16

New Century Version 

These are the ways of the world: wanting to please our sinful selves, wanting the sinful things we see, and being too proud of what we have. None of these come from the Father, but all of them come from the world.
