whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.”  Matt. 5:28.  We need to be very careful of our thoughts, and where our eyes wander.  Keep the right kind of thoughts.  A mother told her son when he was taking a trip, “Son, never do anything to place your body where your soul would not be the master.”  Petting and kissing among young people will lead to wrong thoughts and lead them into traps.  We need to be careful and watchful about all of these things.  “Keep thyself pure.”  My dear Grandson, we are in a battle in this world against all evil.  The devil wants to destroy our souls and cause us to miss eternal life with Jesus Christ, the Lover of our souls.  The devil has many agents in the world who also help him.  In the schools today your teachers are taught how to change your thinking.  They will slowly but surely work on you day by day to do so.  Beware of this.  Don’t let anyone destroy your faith in God, in the Bible, nor in what it teaches as being the Eternal Word of God.  Guard this faith and live by it.  It means your eternal destiny.  Whether anyone says God’s Word is true or false, it will still be true.  Men’s thoughts and ideas will never change God’s Word.

The next sin is uncleanness.  The dictionary says that uncleanness means “morally impure, foul, filthy, unchaste and obscene.”  The Bible says, “God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.”  I Thess. 4:7.  This means that we are to keep ourselves pure in thought, word, and deed.  Keep a rebuke in your heart against dirty jokes and those things that lead to impurity.  The Bible says, “Unto the pure all things are pure:  but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.”  Titus 1:15.  Homosexuality would come under this sin.  The Bible plainly condemns this sin.  In Romans we read about the corrupt man and it says, “God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:...  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections:  for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:  and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet [fit].  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; being filled with all unrighteousness.”  Romans 1:24-28.  It is very plain that homosexuality is a terrible sin.  God has a purpose for the use of each member of our bodies and it is not to be used in sinful ways.  Sex is for a purpose and that is to bring children into the world and for the purpose of love-making between married couples.  But it is not to be abused and temperance is to be used.  Temperance is one of the fruits of the Spirit. (Gal. 5:23).  Each member is to be used for the purpose that God has intended.  Remember this and the Lord will give you understanding.
