How serious is the sin of immorality. Listen to Adrian Rogers numerology was the sin that led to the downfall of Greece, Rome, Egypt, about and it will be the right of the American Empire to take a stand for that which is right, which is just America goodbye because God will give up this nation. Wilkins worth finding featuring profound truth. Simply stated by Adrian Rogers as we just heard, despite its dangerous sexual immorality is socially acceptable in our nation. Despite the clear instruction in God's word to remain pure, Adrian Rogers said our nation is in a crisis.

And unless we have a moral rebirth. We will join the graveyard of nations.

If you have your Bible turnout Romans chapter 1 verse 24 is Adrian Rogers delivers part two of the last step on the way down. I want to say why I haven't messed his last step on the way down. Let me tell you why adult is not a proper source of humor, late-night television show. Let me tell you why. Adultery is even more important and more damning than perjury. What is a bill for. Why is adultery such a such a such a such a such a give some reasons. Number one.

Adultery is a sin against one's self, S, E, L putting a margin for Sprint is chapter 6 and verse 18.

The Bible says fornication is get out of there. Every sin that a man is without the body, but he that committed fornication center against his own body he sends against his own body. There is no other sin that will do you more damage spiritually, psychologically and physically ban this sin is a how can it hurt me physically what we know today that Americans are being killed literally by sexual disease. When a man commits the Sandy sins against his own body where a lot today about safe sex grandma sex that God made is not supposed to be dangerous. Lord Byron was with a charming, handsome, fetid, and praised.

He was a man with a silver top, but he thought he was smarter than God, any dissent against his own body consorted with immature women, England's greatest poet and Playboy said happy in my days are in the yellow leaf flower and fruit of life are gone. The worm tanker. The grief on my alone is just proving what God's word says when a man sins against his own self. But secondly, not only is adulterous and it is one's own self. Adultery is a sin against the home. The sad thing about it is the lives of innocent children are torn apart every year by adultery is anything that pains me and hurts me is to hear those who are living an ungodly MRO lifestyle play about family values Romans to verse 22 bow that says the man should not commit adultery just now commit adultery.

The whole second chapter of the book of Romans is about hypocrites also carried a big, black Bibles and pray about family values, the same against the home can't do says this and I want to listen. The man who commits adultery, tells his child.

Your mother is not worth much, and your father is a liar and a cheat. Furthermore, honor is not nearly as important as pleasure. In fact my child my own satisfaction is more important than you are. That's what the man who commits the Santos which I would like to hear that again. The man who commits adultery tells us child your mother is not worth much, and your father is a liar and a cheat. Furthermore, honor is not nearly as important as pleasure. In fact my child my own satisfaction is more important than you are to see God establish monogamous marriage to meet the deepest emotional, physical, psychological and spiritual needs of the child because you see a child needs the context of a home and that holds the home together is sexual faithfulness by adultery is a sin against oneself by adultery is a sin against the home and the home is the foundation of society, Birdland, adultery is a sin against the church you a member of this church in your living an impure life.

You have sinned against the rest of us because we're in this together.

First Corinthians chapter 3 in verse 16 know you not that ye are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you.

Paul says in first grade. This 12 that we are members one of another.

We're in it together and what affects you affects me, and you cannot say what I do is nobody else's business. Not in the covenant relationship of the church when one member suffers, every member suffers adultery is a sin against the charge. It is an infection in the body and adultery. Ladies and gentlemen is a sin against the nation. Adultery is an act of treason in the Old Testament, not the New Testament in the Old Testament.

Adultery was a crime worthy of death. Deuteronomy chapter 22 verse 22. If a man be found lying with a woman married to a husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman and the woman I listen to this.

So shout that I'll put away evil from Israel put this sin not only away from the people of God, but from the nation itself waste evil from Israel back to something foolish is foolish to say that character and leadership are not synonymous.

No man is morally fit for leadership who is sexually impure. Proverbs 14 verse 34 says righteousness exalts a nation, but Sam is a reproach to any people character counts.

Here's the rubric we're listening to debate what people say today essay has nothing to do with it, is what matters. If you own airplane and the pilot is a good pilot and he can fly the airplane if he can take you all safely if you can keep your there safely. If he can land you safely. What difference does his character make it makes absolutely no difference unless you will the blessing of God Almighty airplane when you say that character doesn't Do what you say you're saying God doesn't say we can provide sound we see God.

We know how to do it. We don't want the blessing of God. Yes character doesn't count library. If there is no God but there is a God and we want his blessing are skilled ungodly leaders dangerous. That would be like a skill search costs are generally skilled to do brain surgery, but he does not scrub before he does he will in fact everything he touches. I want them to be clean. If he's going to do surgery on me. Proverbs 16 verse 12 says it is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness for the throne. Listen, the throne is established by righteousness is that we all have kings we have leaders see leadership the stewardship the leader whomever he maybe the city Council anybody else. They are acting for God. The Bible says in Romans 13 is the minister of God's acting for God. The man who commits adultery is a liar is lighting just as marriage vows and liars and leaders are not the say the Bible says in Proverbs 20 verse 28 Mercy and preserve the king Abraham Lincoln recalling moms they Abraham Lincoln said you can fool all of the people some of the time as you can fool some of the people all of the time but you can't fool all the people all the time and I would add Mr. Lincoln you can fool God. Any of the time. God knows and God sees there was a king in the Old Testament. His name was Lemuel. He had a mother who gave him some good advice.

Proverbs 31 verse three she said give not thy strength on the women, nor thy ways to that which destroys kings.

No man is fit to lead.

Was Marley impure immorality was the sand that led to the downfall of Greece, Rome, Egypt and Babylon, and it will be the right of the American Empire.

If we were to take a stand for that which is right and that which is just America goodbye because God will give up on this nation. Josiah Gilbert Holland was born in 1819, wrote these words, but there were never more needful. God did was man a time like this.

Demand strong minds great hearts through faith and ready hands man, the lust of office does not to man whom the spoils of office, by man possess opinions and will man who have honor man who will not lie man who can stand before demagogue and dam his treacherous flattery without winking tall man some crown live above the fall in public duty and in private thinking while the rabble with some warm creeds there large professions and their little beads mingling, selfish, drive low freedom. We wrong rules the land and waiting justice sleeps. This God gives man adultery is a sin against the nation about the what else it's a sin against not only against oneself, not only against the family not only of same against the nation, but adultery. My friend is a sin against Almighty God. There is a God in the glory and what people say. What difference does it make you may as well ask, what difference does God make Exodus 20 verse 14 says thou shalt not commit adultery to see this. Sam is against God because God says it is wrong when King David recognize what he had done. King David wrote a penitential Psalm he did not try to cover it up because what we try to cover God uncovers and what we uncover God will cover but David said in Psalm 51 verse four praying to God against DNV only, have I sinned, and done this evil in my sight. David realized that he broke both God's law and God's heart and Sam was against Almighty God. Adultery friend is a sin that God will judge if you're making notes.these following Scriptures. Hebrews 13 verse four marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled but warm mongers and adulterers God will judge. I did say that God said God will judge. Proverbs chapter 6 verses 27 through 29. Can a man take fire in his bosom and his clothes be not burned up on hot coals of his feet not be burned, so he that goeth into his neighbor's wife. Whosoever touches her shall not be innocent. Proverbs chapter 6 verse 32 but whoso commits adultery with the woman lack of understanding he would do if it destroys his own soul, Proverbs chapter 7 verse 27. Speaking of the adulterous woman. Her house is the way to hell going down to the chambers of death. First Corinthians chapter 6 verse 9 million out that the righteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God be not deceived me the fornicators that sex before marriage, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, that's illicit sex, when married, nor effeminate, that is, sexual perversion, nor abusers of themselves with mankind. God says don't be to see.

Then I'm going to heaven unless they change by God goes on to say, and such were some of you doesn't say there's no need of the site is no forgiveness. He saying if this is your lifestyle. Your choice of practice, you need to get say Ephesians 5 verse five. For this you know that no warmonger or unclean person or covetous man was my daughter at any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

When the last book in the holy Bible, Revelation chapter 21 verse eight there is a rollcall of the dam, but the fear and unbelieving and abominable, and murderers and warmongers and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars shall have the part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death is a God is a holy God.

God is given his commandments's laws law without penalties. Only advice God is not giving advice.

No matter how immorality is laugh that glamorize, rationalize, legitimatize by the social engineers and the pundits God brought me here to tell you I prayed about this message. This is assuming God will judge you know the reason that some people think that God's not going to judge the sin looking chapter 2 verse five, Romans two, verse five, but after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasures onto thyself against the day of wrath, wrath against the day of wrath and the revelation of the righteous judgment of God. We see people are just treasuring up wrath everyday. They put a new deposit in the bank and the sun comes up in the sun goes down and they say well after my hardness and impenitent heart treasures against the name one more deposit is put in the bank will what must we do, we cannot change the hearts and minds of others I live. I was not going to come to this nation from the White House, the statehouse or the schoolhouse is going to come from the church is going to began with the people of God, one by one. We need to take our nation back and let me tell you, young people are here. Listen to God's word. Don't sacrifice, they ultimately eternal on the altar of the immediate don't be so foolish verse will make a decision. Heart Almighty God because he is the only one who is able to guide you have to make that decision depend upon him looked at him, he will deliver you from sexual immorality for trusting number three after decision and dependence devotion love God with all your heart and live your own life, love, your roommate, your own husband with a supernatural love. The Bible says. Husbands, love your wives is not a request. It is a command anything God commands you to do. You can do number four development look decision dependence devotion and development. Feed your love life the growth is not like a diamond something that you find hard and brittle and beautiful and you keep it to say that love is like a flower is gotta become located at 104 Richard if you love your wife more today than you did when you married, you probably love her less continue to feed that love from day-to-day work with another woman and never fail to flirt with your wife just develop that love ham and discipline God your company give attention to what you really want to see this either certain things are not going to watch discipline your life you wouldn't put garbage in your mouth, don't put garbage in your mind God. Your company but companion flows. We destroy last of all determination determine. Joshua said I don't know what course others will take, but as for me and my house we will serve the Lord. I love what the psalmist said what he said my is if you make up your mind about one big decision you will have to keep making up your mind about love little decision you will have to determine every time you go to the Holiday Inn while you watch a filter movie about because your heart is fixed at terminal God, my God, I will serve you as a pastor you made me feel bad today because very frankly, my life is been touched by morality, but want to use something that's what this book is all about good news, good news uses the bad news that makes the good news for the Bible says the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ is the power of God and the salvation of God is a God of grace and God is a God of forgiveness. God is a God of another chance.

God is a God. This is all your sins be as scarlet, they should be white as snow. Though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool, hallelujah for such a gospel. Thank God for that of any man be in Christ Jesus is a new creature, old things are passed away behold all things are become new.
