For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.

New Age Movement

The Bible, of course, also warns of a coming world government that will be based on evolutionary humanism, when a great king "shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvelous things against the God of gods." Instead of acknowledging responsibility to the Creator, he will "honor the God of forces" (Daniel 11:36, 38). The ultimate source of evolutionary humanism and all its religious representatives, whether in ancient paganism or modern scientism, is none other than Satan himself, the old Dragon, who has been seeking since the beginning to destroy the God of creation and become the cosmic deity himself. For a brief moment Satanism will finally become the world's religion. "And they worshipped the dragon which gave power to the beast: and they worshipped the beast " (Revelation 13:4).

 

New Age Spiritism

Deuteronomy 18:10-14 Let no practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD

 

Pornography

Pornography attacks the dignity of men and women created in the image of God. Pornography also distorts God's gift of sex which should be shared only within the bonds of marriage. See 1 Cor. 7:2-3; Mathew 5:27-30; adultery (Lev. 18:20), bestiality (Lev. 18:23).

 

And it came to pass in an evening, that David arose from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king's house: and from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman [was] very beautiful to look upon. 2 Samuel 11:2.†

 

I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid? Job 31:1†

 

†††† Other NT verses: Matthew 5:27-28; James 1:14-15; 1 John 2:16†

 

Prostitution

Do not prostitute thy daughter, to cause her to be a whore; lest the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness. Leviticus 19:29†

 

†††† Other NT verses: 1 Corinthians 6:15-17; Ephesians 5:5; Hebrews 13:4†

 

Seven deadly sins, The

These six [things] doth the Lord hate: yea, seven [are] an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that devises wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness [that] speaks lies, and he that sows discord among brethren. Proverbs 6:16-19†

 

Sexual sins

You shall not commit adultery. Exodus 20:14†

 

†††† Other NT verses: Matthew 5:28; Acts 15:20; Romans 13:13; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; 1 Corinthians 6:13-19†

 

Sins

The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery, idolatry and witchcraft [which includes the use of drugs]; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. In summary, the Bible teaches us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world. (Titus 2:12).

 

Smoking tobacco

Know you not that you are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwells in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which [temple] you are. 1 Corinthians 3:16-17†

 

†††† Other NT verse: 1 Corinthians 6:19-20†

 

Suicide

Job 1:21 - "the Lord gave and the Lord has taken away"

Teenage pregnancy

If a man find a damsel [that is] a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found; Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty [shekels] of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days. Deuteronomy 22:28-29†

 

†††† Other NT verses: Matthew 1:18-20; Luke 1:34-35†

 

Temptation

Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
