Ephesians 5:3 NLT - "Let there be no sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among you. Such sins have no place among God's people."
According to 1 Thessalonians 4:3, living a sanctified life that is free from immorality is part of God's clear will for His followers. Immoral actions destroy a Christian's testimony, spoil their fellowship with their Savior, degrade and belittle the other party by leading them into or encouraging them in degrading behavior, hurt other relationships, and bring shame on the Christian themselves. The temporary "pleasure" of sensual sin is no match for the shame and reproach this kind of sin can bring against a follower of Christ. As Paul says, these kind of sins "have no place among God's people." God wants believers to live holy and wholesome lives maintaining a godly relationship with others. Christians should consider their actions with other people and be sure that what they do will bring a person to Christ or help a believer to walk closer with their Lord.
