1 Thessalonians 4:3-5,7

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 3 For this is the will of God: that you become holy [sanctified], so that you abstain from sexual immorality;

 4 That every one of you know how to possess [control] his own body in purity and honor,1

 5 Not in the passions of lusts, as the Gentiles do, who are ignorant of God. [Sexual immorality includes fornication and adultery; adultery includes looking at a woman with lust.]

 7 For God has not called us to uncleanness, but to holiness.2

2 For God has not called us to uncleanness, but to holiness. The sects choose to ignore this, thinking they have a license to sin and remain unclean in heart forever with no consequence. Yet: without holiness, no one will see the Lord. Heb 12:14. Paul speaks to believers still sinning: Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame. 1 Cor 15:34.
