Do We Now Have Bishops Who Do Not Consider "shacking" a sin???


Reader, the number of men and women shacking up is on the rise like never before. Accelerating the already progress of evil.  I would like to mention beforehand that if the church ministers had taken the word of God at face value and cried out against sin in and out of season since the bible days men and women would not be living under the same roof unmarried fearing that they would die in the very act of fornication.

In the Black church, we know and speak of it as "shacking". We are taught that when you have a testimony of salvation than for you shacking becomes a sin.    

 



However, there are a steady stream of men and women of all age groups who are choosing to live together first and put marriage on the back burner as if it is ok with God.  Tell me what you think about this. Last night I watched a scope of a bishop who basically said that the Bible is silent and does not address shacking up. And, where the Bible is silent we should also be silent. He asked, where is "shacking up" condemned in the Bible and where does the Bible say that this is the same as the sin of fornication? 

The Bible defines the act of marriage as "becoming one flesh". I'm pretty sure shacked up couples have become one flesh at least once during their cohabitation. What do you think?

  1. Miss Ann,

    Yes, the bible is silent on "shacking", but there is a responsibility that is attached to a man who gets down with a lady, the WORD of God calls it humbling a lady. The man would have to pay restitution to her father and take the lady as his wife and she was never to be put away for the rest of her life (Deuteronomy 22:28-29).

    In Matthew 1:24, Joseph took Mary and she became his wife. Prior to that she was betrothed to him. In other words, Joseph had promised Mary that he would come get her to be with him for life.

    So he shouldn't encourage young people to take relationships for granted. He should instead encourage young people to be responsible for the decisions they take and be committed to the actions they do.

    1. WOW . . . This world is going to hell. If two ppl in relationship are living 2gether, then they are having sex. Fornication is a sin. This is not open two discussion.

  2. Its called Living together ~ shacking up ~ cohabitation ~ living in sin. But sex before marriage definitely falls into the category of fornication—sexual sin. I heard the young man in the video that he was interviewing say that sex outside of marriage was not fornication, what bible is he reading? Anyone living together outside of marriage is a displeasure and judgment of God.
    Hebrews 13:4 “ Marriage [is] honorable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whore mongers and adulterers God will judge." KJV
    1 Corinthians 7:2 - "Nevertheless, [to avoid] fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband." KJV

  3. The Bible is silent on shacking up but I always find it funny how a lot of Christians are so concerned what other people do in their bedroom.

    1. William Thomas, (not trying to insult you) BUT, you are REALLY FUNNY or you love your FLESHLY thinking. If you even think for a minute that God would be OK with "SHACKING UP" then I would tell ALL women to stay away from you. I would keep my daughter FAR AWAY from you...SORRY!! Your comment is the kind that gives the impression that you don't care what the Bible say's.... YOU'RE GOING TO DO IT "YOUR" WAY. So Sad, my friend!

    Shacking up with a man/woman and having sex outside of wedlock is fornication. It doesn't matter if both love one another or plan to get married. A couple shacking up together may function as if they are in a marriage, but there is a BIG difference!!! Marriage carries the GENUINE BLESSING OF THE LORD. Shacking up is an attempt to COUNTERFEIT IT.
    Hebrews 13:4 Amp. "4 Let marriage be held in honor (esteemed worthy, precious, of great price, and especially dear) in all things. And thus let the marriage bed be undefiled (kept undishonored); for God will judge and punish the unchaste [all guilty of sexual vice] and adulterous."
    1 Corinthians 6:18 "18 Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body."

  5. MARRIAGE IS HONORABLE TO GOD AND THE BED IS UNVEILED. SEX ANYKIND OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE IS FORNICATION OR ADULTREY AND THEY ARE SINS. AND IN HELL YOU WILL LIFT YOUR EYES IF YOU ARE PARTICIPATING IN THOSE UNGODLY AND UNHOLY ACTS AGAINST GOD'S COMMANDMENTS. THESE HEATHEN THAT HAVE CALLED THEMSELVES TO PREACH AND GIVEN THEMSELVES THESE TITLES NEEDS TO STOP WITH ALL THIS FALSE INTERPRETATION OF THE BIBLE AND FALSE TEACHING. THEY ARE LEADING FOLKS STRAIGHT TO HELL. IF HE FEELS LIKE SHAKING UP IS OK THEN THAT'S HE PROBABLY BELIEVES IT'S OK FOR SAME SEX MARRIAGE AND THAT TBE LGBTQ FOLKS HAVE ALL THE RIGHTS IN THE WORLD THEY DO. TO GET SAVED AND DELIVERED AND SET FREE FROM ALL SIN AND SHAME. IT'S HOLINESS OR HELL. AND SHACKING UP IS A SIN. IF I HAVE TO BUY LICENSE FOR MY DOG EVERY YEAR. AND GET HIS VACCINATION EVERY YEAR. THEN IF A MAN CARED ANYTHING ABOUT THAT WOMAN HE WOULD GET HER SOME LICENSE. THAT PAPER MEANS SOMETHING. IF HE LOVES YOU LIKE HE SAYS THAT HE DOES THEN HE NEEDS TO PUT A RING ON AND SOME PAPERS . IT TAKES STRENGTH TO BE SINGLE. INSTEAD OF SETTLING. YOU HAVE TO BE WILLING TO LOSE THEM TO KEEP THEM.IF THEY FEEL LIKE YOU'LL STAY NO MATTER WHAT.THEN THEY WILL TREAT YOU LIKE CRAP.BUT IF YOU SHOW THEM THAT YOU WILL LEAVE. BY ACTUALLY LEAVING THEM. THEY WILL RESPECT YOU AND THEY WILL EITHER GET IT TOGETHER OR IF THEY DON'T YOU WILL REALIZE THAT YOU HAVE YOUR SELF RESPECT AND YOU ARE MUCH BETTER OFF WITHOUT THEM. AND THEY DIDN'T DESERVE YOUR LOVE AND YOU MUCH BETTER OFF WITHOUT THEM IN YOUR LIFE. LEARNING TO LOVE YOURSELF IS THE GREATEST LOVE OF ALL. LOVE YOURSELF OR LOSE YOURSELF.

  6. "Fornication", in the King James Bible and not a manmade dictionary, is the act of unnatural and idolatrous sexual intercourse as an attempt to mirror or glorify the rebellious sons of God (Angels) and Nephillim from Noah's era during Genesis, Chapter 6.

    "Fornication" covers homosexuality, beastiality, Pagan temple prostitution and other things against nature. Shacking up is not mentioned at all.
