Hi readers and followers,
Don't be fooled by the above title.
I had a discussion with someone today. The lady said the below:
God cares about our spirit not our body. The body dies after one has given his or her life to Christ, therefore it is irrelevant what you do with your body.
It is about what you feed your spirit with.
She said, fornication and adultery are inevitable as it is not realistic for one to be faithful as a single or married person.
She emphasised on the physical body not being of a concern.
She also stated that, if the spirit is not fully mature, once she dies, her spirit will come back to life to live on earth until it has fully matured.
I was gob-smacked after her discussions.
Do you share similar views like her? She was so convinced in her views, and she was even quoting scriptures.
I did not even get the chance to respond to everything that she said. Nonetheless, I will pray for her and also share the below scriptures with her.
My respond to her view. The position of God:
1 Thessalonians 5:23- May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 6:20 - You were bought at a price. Therefore honour God with your bodies.
Galatians 5:19-21- The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.
1 Corinthians 3:16-17: Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him. For God's temple is holy, and you are that temple.
1 Corinthians 6:18- Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.
Romans 12: 1- I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.
Leviticus 19:28- You shall not make any cuts on your body for the dead or tattoo yourselves: I am the Lord.
God's Word about life after death:
1 Corinthians 15:51-57- Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.
For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.
For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?”
Final notes: Let us be careful of the messages that we listen to. Someone that is not sound in the Word of God could be easily deceived. Even the Bible says that the very elect can be deceived with people that misinterpret the Word of God.
