What does the Bible say about impurity?

Sep 3, 2019

From the writings of the Rev. Billy GrahamQ: I am studying biology and learning about impurities in the blood. What does the Bible say about impurity? — I.I.

A: The Bible says that the body has been corrupted by sin and only the shed blood of Jesus Christ can cleanse us. Our minds have also been corrupted. In God’s eyes, impurity is one of the most revolting sins, because it twists and distorts one of God’s most precious gifts: human love. Impurity drags this gift down to the level of the beast.

Yet impurity — surrounding us as it does in the form of filthy stories, suggestive remarks and open vulgarity; in magazines, on television, in the movies and through the internet — has a better press agent than purity. Purity is considered smug, but impurity is considered smart — and the consequences of this vicious sin are played down. Satan fails to speak of the remorse, the futility, the loneliness, and the spiritual devastation that go hand in hand with immorality.

Christ can do only one thing with the sin of impurity — and every other sin — and that is to condemn it. But He also forgives it when we confess and turn from it. He cleanses us and gives us victory over sin. Jesus told the immoral woman to leave her life of sin and sin no more (John 8:11). He says that to us as well — and He never told anyone to do something without giving them power to do it.

The Bible says, “But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you” (Ephesians 5:3, NASB). We must pray and ask the Father in Heaven to give us strength to turn away from sexual immorality and to give us the wisdom and discernment in our interactions with other people, so that we do not fall into temptation.

When we belong to Christ, He will give power over sin if we are obedient to His Word.

Do people know anymore what God really said or meant?

Sep 4, 2019

From the writings of the Rev. Billy Graham

Q: The Bible claims that God’s Word never changes, but hasn’t society changed it so that people really do not know anymore what God really said or meant? — C.T.

A: Just because people misinterpret God’s Word does not mean it has changed. The devil’s a master at making us question God. He’s been doing this from the beginning of time. His command to Adam and Eve had been crystal clear: they could eat of every tree in the garden, except one. If they ate of it, death would come upon them. But now Satan raises the questions: “Did God really say… ?” It’s the first question in the Bible, and it’s significant that it comes from the mouth of the one whose primary goal is to turn us away from God.

But notice: Satan misquoted God. This was not what God had told them — as Eve points out in her reply. Twisting Scripture … taking a verse out of context … deceiving us into thinking God’s mean-spirited — these are some of Satan’s favorite tricks and we see it still played out today in the hearts and minds of people.

Eve’s mistake was in prolonging the conversation — and eventually being deceived by the deceiver. The mistake was that she listened to the devil. His promise — that she would become like God if she ate from the forbidden tree — was a lie. We mustn’t let Satan sow the seeds of doubt in our minds, but always stand firm on the truth of God’s Word that we have access to. Therefore, man is without excuse.

Satan’s tactic is to call into question God’s Word. We cannot be satisfied with clichés or a secondhand knowledge of Scripture. We must pray for God to give us a hunger for His truth and not let any philosophy or person sway us from the very words of Almighty God.
