Is sexual promiscuity an illness or a sin?


God says sexual promiscuity is a sin, the devil says it is not really the fault of a person but caused by the person’s situation, upbringing, or genetic makeup. That is a trick the devil has been using since the garden of Eden when he told Eve that to disobey God’s commands would not really lead to judgment but if it feels right go ahead and do it.

Sin is a sickness that only God can cure. Someday it will be the person committing the sin standing in front of God and they will have to account for their behavior and whether or not they accepted the gift of Salvation through the precious blood of Christ and repentance of their sins. By the way, repentance literally means to “turn from” so as part of accepting Christ’s eternal gift the person needs to demonstrate their acceptance by turning from this lifestyle.

Victory can be won, but it requires this:
James 4:7-10  Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
