So, I just joined this site, and I’ve been looking at different questions from people to try to get a feel for what this site is like. I’m really happy to be here.
I came across one user who had OCD, and he/she asked a question about the meaning of Ephesians 5:3. I thought it was a strange question, so I looked into it more, and… now I’m worried about it myself. Here are some commentaries…
“These sins must be dreaded and detested. Christians are saints and are to live like saints. They are separated unto God, and therefore separated from sin. These sins are not to be mentioned, much less permitted. Such terms taint the imagination, soil the lips, and cultivate sensual lusts. Such conversation is unbecoming saints and incompatible with Christianity.” -KJV Bible Commentary
“Not only were these sins to be avoided in fact, but to be shunned in their very name. Their absence should be so universal, that there should be no occasion to refer to them, or make any mention of them. Indelicate allusion to such sins should not soil Christian lips.” -John Eadie
I know that people gave advice to the person who originally posted the question, but now I’m worried too… Can someone help me with this, please?
