EIGHT THINGS FORBIDDEN BY GOD

Christians, meaning those people who have truly made a conscious decision to accept Jesus as God in human flesh and the One who died and rose for our salvation by grace through faith, are called to maintain certain moral standards, and refrain from doing what Scripture forbids. Here is a list, though not comprehensive, of just eight things that God forbids. There are more, but these are eight of the most common in our culture today. I am not going to quote these passages, but simply cite the reference. You are encouraged to get your Bible and read these passages for yourself.

Here are eight forbidden areas that Christians could do well to heed:

1. Astrology, signs of the zodiac, and horoscopes. (Exodus 20:3; Deut. 4:19 and 17:1-5)

2. Having sex before marriage. (Hebrews 13:4; I Thess. 4:3)

3. The occult and witchcraft. (Deut. 18:10-12; I Samuel 28:3, Leviticus 19:31)

4. Abortion. (Psalm 139:13-16)

5. Homosexuality. (Romans 1:24-27; Leviticus 18:22)

6. Drunkeness. (Ephesians 5:18; Prov. 20:1, and 23:20)

7. Gambling. (Matthew 6:19-21; I Tim. 6:6-10)

8. Tattoos. (Leviticus 19:28)

If you are a true, regenerated Christian who has called upon the name of the Lord for your salvation but are involved in any of these practices, God's forgiveness is extended to anyone, but in the words of Jesus, "Go and sin no more." In other words, do not call yourself a Christian if you are content with continuing in ways contrary to God's teaching.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

In reference to the first comment about anything being acceptable if it doesn't detract from your walk with Christ? Not true in all cases. As concerns body art, it wasn't my comment. It's what the Bible says. Concerning the second comment, a true regenerate believer who has made Christ Lord of his life, won't have a desire to do these things.

Hello, I couldn't help but think of things such as gossip and anger, malice...Colossians 3:5-7 I heard an interesting sermon by Ravi Zacharias this morning. He said something to the effect of anything done for pleasure and enjoyment, if it doesn't detract in our forward motion with our walk with Christ is acceptable. The reason I am going there is your comment on tattoo body art. Is decorating our body with scriptural references necessarily a bad thing? Just wondering...

Hmmmmm.... back to "do not taste, do not touch, do this, do that, don't do this, don't do that"? I lose my Christianity if I go into this forbidden zone then?
