“Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals,nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God” 1 Cor. 6:9-10).
This is the best news humanity could ever want to hear. Fornicators (those who have had sex out of marriage) can be forgiven, and find everlasting life. So can adulterers, thieves, the covetous, and homosexuals. God will give everlasting life to all who repent and trust alone in Jesus. They can go to Heaven and avoid the terrible damnation of Hell. What sort of twisted person would I be, if I removed drunkards from the list, because the world says that drunkards aren’t sinning against God--they are rather “sick”). Who am I to remove adulterers, or thieves, or homosexuals from that list, because I don’t agree with the Bible? If I am to remain faithful as a preacher and Christian, I have to tell people that the offer of eternal life is universal—it’s for is all of humanity. Anything else is a betrayal to those who are still in their sins, the repercussions of which will be seen on Judgment Day.
