Fornication, Adultery, Sexual Immorality, 苟合,姦淫

Fornication, Adultery, Sexual Immorality, 苟合,姦淫

經常看聖經會犯上的另一毛病,就是把一連串列出的事輕描淡寫的略過了事,就如苟合,姦淫 (fornication, adultery, sexual immorality) 等看為一種事,沒有深研兩者是有分別的。

根據牛津字典的解釋︰

fornication – 是泛指沒有婚姻下的性行為。

immorality – 不道德,邪惡。Sexual Immorality – 不道德或邪惡的性關係。

adultery – 指已婚的人與不是他的配偶發生性行為。

 

耶穌基督對門徒的教導︰

Mark 7:20-23

NIV

20 He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them.

21 For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder,

22 adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly.

23 All these evils come from inside and defile a person.”

 

NASB

20 And He was saying, “That which proceeds out of the man, that is what defiles the man.

21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries,

22 deeds of coveting and wickedness, as well as deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride and foolishness.

23 All these evil things proceed from within and defile the man.”

 

和合本

20 又說、從人裡面出來的、那纔能污穢人.

21 因為從裡面、就是從人心裡、發出惡念、苟合

22 偷盜、兇殺、姦淫、貪婪、邪惡、詭詐、淫蕩、嫉妒、謗讟、驕傲、狂妄.

21 這一切的惡、都是從裡面出來、且能污穢人。

 

從主耶穌以上的教訓可知祂勸誡人不要犯上以上種種行為,可是有些人試圖曲解聖潔的神對罪的看法,去掩飾自己的罪。

儘管這些人能欺騙到某些人,但神是信實的是公義的,人若不悔改,斷不能進入祂的救恩,最終要面對終極的審判。
