Should People Engaged In Premarital Sex Be Allowed To Lead Ministries In A Church?

Reader, this is a great article and goes right along with my morning devotion. Does the Bible condone premarital sex? Should people engaged in premarital sex be allowed to lead ministries in a church.  "If there was nothing wrong with premarital sex, then why was Joseph determined to divorce Mary when he discovered she was expecting a child prior to marriage? If there is nothing wrong with premarital sex, then one could conclude there is nothing wrong with having children out of wedlock." Very controversial in today's society, but a solid reminder of where Satan wants to take us to weaken the Church.

  1. If everyone that leads some form of ministryy duties was asked to step down from their positions......
    the church would have next to non to teach or preach.

    1. i disagree. It might be hard for CELEBRITY preachers to live a sexually pure lifestyle, but there are clergymen and women who do NOT conform to the world's standards. Like in Elijah's day where 400 men had NOT bowed to Baal.

      Clarence McClendon, Israel Houghton & Wes Morgan (both gospel singers) Noel Jones, Deitrick Haddon, Deion Sanders, and many more who have divorced their still living spouses.. Divorce is as common in the Church as it is in the world!

      But MANY men and women in the Church live according to the standards of the Bible! They are the ones you don't hear about because they aren't in the church Hollywood and you don't hear about them because they don't pastor megachurches.

    2. Thank you tooprotected for that truth. I had premarital sex enough to have had 4 boys. I didn't know the bible then like I do now. But once I learned and understood the order of how God designed to be, my life changed.

  2. Miss Ann,

    Joseph was simply obeying God's commandment (as handed down by Moses) without embarrassing Mary. So the bottom line is that we have to live in accordance with the precepts of God. His commandments are the gold standard i.e. for life, preservation, wisdom, knowledge, and understanding (Psalm 119).

    So there is no controversy. It is only when people decide that they should be given a pass since they are elders and deacons in church and, therefore, don't want to be judged according to God's WORD that they make it to be a controversial issue.

    The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall NOT want...

    1. It's sickening, pathetic and shameful that a question like this needs to be asked of those who profess to be "like Christ" in that we share His divine nature. This is why the sinner and unbelievers laugh at the joke Christianity has become.

    2. Christianity is NEVER a JOKE! It is the most TRUTHFUL matter ever known to ALL mankind, throughout ALL of History.

      What is a joke (and causes people to laugh with sadness) is YOU claiming to be married to Sapp, a man who never introduced YOU as his wife, and goes as far even to denounce you publically. This is the kind of stuff people are laughing at.

      See...They can never really laugh as "Christianity". God will judge all who in their flesh ad foolishness, would even attempt to RIDICULE HIM. "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting".

      It's never Christianity, rather moreso, those who profess it. GET OUTTA HERE!!!

  3. Delivered from myselfFriday, 23 December, 2016

    If you practice any sin as a lifestyle, you shouldn't be allowed to lead anything in ministry.
    Everyone will fall short in some way but if you're just out there screwing because you can, you're not helping yourself or the ministry by leading or even participating in ministry activists. You need to just sit there and be fed until you get delivered.

  4. Ahhh yes as the saying goes the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak, and not only for the mega's but for a lot of unknowns too. Yes there are a great many that are able to remain celibate.

  5. Apostle Paul said,“It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God; and that in this matter no one should wrong or take advantage of a brother or sister. The Lord will punish all those who commit such sins, as we told you and warned you before.” (I Thessalonians 4:3-6)

    1. COGIC Bishop...Great reply on the verses quoted per this topic discussed.
      Hey, Are you one of them who are giving Blake $15,000 for your entitlement? What are your thoughts on all the "allegations" surrounding BLAKE, and how all these seems to cast questions on him being "blameless", as a bishop should possess this trait, as described in 1 Timothy 3:2 "A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;"? GET OUTTA HERE!!!

    2. Anonymous yes once upon a time long ago I was apart of the COGIC organization but not any more. And no to your other question.....I never gave Bishop Blake $15.000.00 to be apart of anything. As a person in leadership, I think that Bishop Blake is a great leader and man of God.

    4. COGIC Bishop,
      Please change your name. If you're not CURRENTLY a COGIC Bishop, then you're a liar.

  6. Whoever initiated this article...ARE YOU FOR REAL??? If Joseph would have had sexual relations with Mary She WOULD NOT have been chosen by God to bring forth JESUS. SMH, SMH, SMH!! Mary "WAS" A VIRGIN....PERIOD! Read the scripture's. YES, this is one of the reasons the devil has advantage over us is because a lot of us (Christians) don't know THE WORD. I tell you WHAT, (even though I know I'm FORGIVEN) I wish I could TURN BACK THE HANDS OF TIME, LOL, because I would have given myself unto God for HIS glory. Having sex before marriage is sin and it is called FORNICATING and the devil uses it to make your life miserable. God knows that WE want it to feel good to OUR flesh, BUT, it puts us in a direction for the devil's attacks. I KNOW IT FROM EXPERIENCE! That is why I THANK God he saved my wife and I before we got married AND had kids. I give HIM praise. Because my mind was in bondage. So, AGAIN, FLEE FORNICATION as we are commanded to do. In Christ Alone, RLR.

  7. If you are willfully SINING you shouldn't be in No Position in church except sitting down. Nobody is perfect. But to continue to SIN and want to be in a position in the church is being ARROGANT. But it happens every day in the church. Pastors let there sons that have out of wedlock children serve as minister's of music, elders,ushers, deacon's etc. The daughters that's a lesbian director of finance, choir director, head usher,missionary board president ,Evangelist, State Youth Director etc. Why cause they have the authority to do so. Folks as long as they have a Gift,or a Talent, or Money and are Family Members they can do anything they want to in the CHURCH. But there is a GOD that sits High and looks Low HE see's everything. And HE will hold these folks accountable for there ACTIONS.
