Danger of a Reprobate Mind: Sexual Sin and YHWH

by John and Ruth Greene

“And as they did not determine within themselves to know Elohim, YAHWEH has given them over to a vain [reprobate, worthless] mind; that they might do what they ought not, having been filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, iniquity, covetousness, malice, being full of envy, murder, quarrels, deceit, evil habits, becoming whisperers, slanderers, haters of YAHWEH, insolent, proud, braggarts, inventors of evil things, weak minded, disobedient to parents, without discernment, covenant breakers, without natural affection, unforgiving, unmerciful, who knowing the righteous judgment of YAHWEH, that those practicing such things He condemns to death, not only do they do them, but they also associate with those who practice them.” – Romans 1:28-32, HRB

porneia-on-the-streetYou can see that there is quite a list of qualities of the world that your Heavenly Father will give you up to when you persist with sin. In the eyes of mankind, these sins are not measured the same. Perhaps the specter of sexual sin is considered by some to be so destructive because that sin involves more than one person and is so damaging. The bottom line is that in the eyes of man, these sins are not measured the same. In the eyes of your Heavenly Father, these sins are on the same list. Is this strange? Could it be argued that all these sins affect the lives of others? (“Understanding Sin“; “Being Set Apart Makes You Aware of Sin“; “Scriptures – Qodesh, Being Set Apart“)

Among the greatest problems that mankind has is sexual sin or “porneia” in Greek. “Porneia” applies to any sexual act whether incest, homosexuality, premarital sex or adultery…if it involves a sex act outside of marriage, that is “porneia”, exactly what the Messiah [Yahshua, Jesus]  and the Bible writers refer to time and time again in scripture. Why is sexual sin such a problem? Let’s face it, sex feels good to lots of people and people love to do what feels good or comes naturally to them. Sexual sin twists the mind in often unexpected ways for all involved. Sexual sin shatters the commitment of marriage, whether real or intended. Sexual sin destroys the sanctity of the family. Sexual sin spreads disease and works against the physical well-being of all involved. (“Thinking of Love“; “Real Love“; “Porneia: Conduct of Disciples in the Sexual Realm“; “Homosexuality: Sex and Personal Identity Crisis“; “Sex is Marriage“)

considering-Gods-WordYet, what do you find? Sexual activity outside of marriage is widely available and fully approved by many. This approval of sexual lifestyle as a life base is easy and may be considered as lots of fun in a world full of pain. To the world, this kind of sin is generally quite attractive and even represents the idea of freedom itself. The truth reveals something else entirely. The evidence shows that any sexual lifestyle outside of marriage in reality hides deep tragedy and hurt behind the scenes. With the glitzy outer appearance and the promise of a good time with no harm done, it can be easy to overlook the dark underbelly of sexual sin. (“Romantic Attachments: Sin & Righteousness“; “Deception: The Plague of Love Detachment“; “Secession of the Heart“)

The city of Las Vegas has been running a television commercial lately showing the devil and an angel carousing with women and winking at each other while having a good time partying. “What happens here stays here.” The message is clear. “Do all that you want because it won’t leave Las Vegas”. Is that really true? I think you know better. This marketing ad shows the times that you and I are living in.


Why would YHWH warn against a sexual lifestyle from outright prostitution to premarital sex to incest to homosexuality? Is your Heavenly Father simply a cosmic killjoy? (“Pursue Righteousness“; “YHWH: The Choice to Stay Loyal“)

“Professing to be wise, they became foolish and changed the glory of the incorruptible Elohim into a likeness of an image of a corruptible man, and of birds, and four-footed animals, and creeping things. Because of this, YAHWEH gave them up to filthy lusts of their hearts, and their bodies to be dishonored among themselves, who changed the truth of YAHWEH into the lie, and worshiped and served the created thing more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

Because of this, YAHWEH gave them up to dishonorable passions, for even their females changed the natural use of their sex to that contrary to nature. And so also their males forsook the use of females, which is natural, and burned with lust toward one another, male with male, they did what is shameful, and received in themselves the just recompense of their error.” – Romans 1:22-27, HRB

By taking into account everything that scripture has to say, it is simple to see that Elohim has good reasons. He wants the best for his kids. He wants his kids to be pure of heart. He wants his kids to be disease free. He wants his kids to free of the tragedy that a sexual lifestyle brings. In short, YHWH wants His people to stay clear from building a nation of sex goddesses and temples to sexual sin. (“The Modern Life Culture Crisis“; “Understanding Sin“; “The Importance of Practical Repentance“)

“For YHWH so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, RNKJV
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your glory. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. Amen.
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.

    I believe illicit sex and lust of money are two greatest sins in the world that causes multitudes to fall and backslide. May the good Lord deliver us from all temptations


  2. Juantia Boldman says:

    ouch i didnt know that was what all that meant and i feel sorry for any one that reads that and dose not start doing what is right.

  3. Katherine Russell says:

    Our society is always looking for love/sex outside of what God intended for us. When this society/world is finished using you (and believe me, they will be finished with you and on to the next, latest, greatest, piece of flesh), you will find yourself, bankrupt, diseased, and abandoned.
    This life is not all there is, and you were created for so much more. No matter the history of your birth, you were called of God into this world and He had no illusions about you. He knows the very deepest secrets and He knew the paths you would take. He still called you. Repent, turn from all your sin and say, “yes” to Jesus. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it. Shalom.

  4. Steve says:

    The devil appears as an angel of light, as does the reward for satisfying the flesh. The reward? Destruction. You will reap what you sow. Repent and all is forgiven, though often the damage that resulted in this life cannot be undone, only forgiven. I learned from mistakes of sexual immorality in life and can testify that marriage is the place where sex is not only condoned, but is holy and undefiled before God. The satisfaction therein is spiritual. I can only hope young Christians who are fooled into thinking it is “ok” to have sex out of marriage can hear this and repent.

  5. Vincent Wlson says:

    My life has been destoryed by sexual sins. I have been married two times and the woman I now leave with I marrie according to the custom of her cultre. She remain legally married to her pervios husbnd. I don’t like that bu she claims that it’s just a paper. This really bothers me, yet I love her. Today I am struggling to make change but at times when confusion grips my heart I tur to sexual sins. I am all messed up. My chilren are all scattered. Now she wants to start a sex business. That hasn’t worke out yet. This is what sex has done to me. I think back on my childhood to find answers. I remember during my school age years when I was in kindergaren,I was taking advantage of by a family member. I sometimes wonder if I took some pleasure from that or not. And again I remember being taking advantage of by a friend of the family. Did I ask for this to happen to me, do you think it had a affect on me, o am I using this thing that accured to me as a excuse for my lack of sexual control. Anyway I try to fight my way through it but its a rea battle. I once had a dfream when I was in my early twenties. In my dream I was being chas by a dark shadow with firey eyes. I came to a edge and there was a huge gulf from where I stood at the edge to the other side. At the bottom there w a pool and in it was a orgey of people all having sex. Men with men, women with women, men with women,and other pleasing themselves. As the dark figure got closer as if to throw me into this pool, I was carried by a invisble force that safe brought me to the other side. Could that have been gthe hand of God. THat dream was years ago and I still struggle wih sexual sins. I hate it but yet get pleasure out of it whe it happens and sadness along with shame and guilt. pray all the time and have gone from church to church never getting better. I fee like i c an not keep playing with God but whos to say I am playing. Whats going tlo become of me. Will I ever be saved from this awful curse. My father was the same and his father was the same. And just last week my pervious wife of my second marriage called me to tell me my 8 year old son hav been caught wastching porno movies. That hurts. He is way to young. This has to stop but how. Please pray for my anmy family
