Top Bible Verses about Sexual Immorality

Leviticus 18:24–25

“ ‘You must not make yourself unclean in any of these things, because the nations whom I am driving out from your presence were made unclean by all of these.

Matthew 15:19–20

For from the heart come evil plans, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, abusive speech. These are the things that defile a person. But eating with unwashed hands does not defile a person!” Read Matthew 15:19–20
1 Corinthians 6:19–20

1 Corinthians 6:18–20

Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a person commits is outside his body, but the one who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.

For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God with your body. Read 1 Corinthians 6:18–20

Ephesians 5:3–5

But sexual immorality, and all uncleanness, or greediness, must not even be named among you (as is fitting for saints), and obscenity, and foolish talk, or coarse jesting (which are not proper), but rather thanksgiving. For this you know for certain, that every sexually immoral person, or unclean person, or greedy person (who is an idolater), does not have an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Read Ephesians 5:3–5
1 Thessalonians 4:3

1 Thessalonians 4:3–7

For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in lustful passion, just as also the Gentiles who do not know God; not to transgress and to exploit his brother in the matter, because the Lord is the one who avenges concerning all these things, just as also we told you beforehand and testified solemnly. For God did not call us to impurity, but in holiness. Read 1 Thessalonians 4:3–7

Hebrews 13:4

Marriage must be held in honor by all, and the marriage bed be undefiled, because God will judge sexually immoral people and adulterers. Read Hebrews 13:4

Famous Christian Quotes About Sexual Immorality, Fornication, Incest, Prostitution

The Change Brought About in Christians

We who formerly delighted in fornication, now embrace chastity alone; we who formerly used magical arts, dedicate ourselves to the good and unbegotten God; we who valued above all things the acquisition of wealth and possessions, now bring what we have into a common stock, and communicate to everyone in need; we who hated and destroyed one another, and on account of their different manners would not live with men of a different tribe, now, since the coming of Christ, live familiarly with them, and pray for our enemies, and endeavor to persuade those who hate us unjustly to live in conformity with the good precepts of Christ, to the end that they may become partakers with us of the same joyful hope of a reward from God the ruler of all.

Justin Martyr

To Expose Children Is the Part of Wicked Men

We have been taught that to expose newly born children is the part of wicked men; and this we have been taught lest we should do any one an injury, and lest we should sin against God, first, because we see that almost all so exposed (not only the girls, but also the males) are brought up to prostitution.… And again [we fear to expose children], lest some of them be not picked up, but die, and we become murderers.

Justin Martyr

“Grant Me Chastity and Continence, but Not Yet”

I, miserable young man, supremely miserable even in the very outset of my youth, had entreated chastity of you, and said, “Grant me chastity and continence, but not yet.”
