Earlier in that same book, a letter to the church at Corinth, Paul describes his audience: the sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, men who practice homosexuality, thieves, the greedy, drunkards, revilers, swindlers.He says of them, “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? [these categories of sinners] will not inherit the kingdom of God.” But he doesn’t end there.We exchanged emails and talked via Skype every day and night for two months. I’ve never done such a thing, but he didn’t seem upset by it.We were planning to meet, but before it happened, one day during our Skype conversation, he started to say things that stirred up our emotions. He said this was natural, but later because I could not go on, we prayed together and asked forgiveness from God and each other. By the way, he stopped contacting me after a while. Dear Reader, I’m shocked and saddened by your letter, but I’m not surprised. I’m grieved by your sin because it separates you from God.Just because a matching site has “Christian” in the title is no guarantee that it will only supply Christian leads and only lead to God-honoring relationships. But for anyone who knows what the Bible says about sin, it isn’t surprising.You must be on your guard and measure everything, and everyone, against Scripture. God tells us that “no temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man” (1 Corinthians a).
Because, for all the grunting, hip-swivelling, egotistical posing and shouts of “whoop! You’ve listened to all the songs a billion times; what you’re paying for is time within a confined space with the superhuman cultural behemoth that created it, for them to do with you what they will, like some kind of new-song-fixated Christian Grey.If you wanted a pre-recorded facsimile of the star in question you’d have stayed at home on You Tube swearing violent death on anyone who works at Grammarly every four minutes.You pay the big bucks to be told, personally, to your face, that you’re louder than Manchester and by far the most special municipality written on the bass player’s back of the entire tour.First a few observations: You describe the man you met online as wonderful and godly.His behavior — leading you into sexual sin, defending that sin as natural, then leaving you after getting what he was after — is neither wonderful, nor godly.
