Fornication is a sexually intimate relationship between two persons who are not married. This is a sin in the eyes of the Lord. Fornication is the act of a person’s sexual lust manifesting itself. This is a terrible sin because it allows all types of demonic misery and diabolical manipulation to take place in the body.

The Bible says in James that we shouldn’t only be hearers of the word, but we should also be doers of the word. So just knowing what the Bible says about fornication is not enough, you have to do as it says.
These bible verses about fornication will help you know and understand what the bible says about fornication and why it is important for you to stay away from sexual immorality. May the Lord be your strength and help you to stay sexually pure. Amen
