    Fornication or sexual immorality in general
    Blue Letter Bible is a great resource for this type of inquiry. I would commend to you the concordance/lexicon if you want a clear understanding of particular words and/or phrases.

    Any form of sex outside of marriage is fornication. There is no specific punishment...{The wages of ANY sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life} This does not mean it is a death sentence...

    Better described as: sin will take you where you don't want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay, cost you more than you want to pay and hurt those around you more than you realize.

    I think I got it.

    Fornicators and the sexually immoral when you're not married, adulterer if you are married and have sex with another married person and harlot is a prostitute.

    I did find that fornicating were to be banished.

    interesting.

    A thread about the Bible and not one post in reference of what is actually in the Bible, let alone the cultural or historical references. It's mere speculation without that context. For instances, would anyone know the cultural significance of the story of "The woman at the well" and how and why that enraged the ruling Jewish class of the day?

    Can anyone here tell the difference between the cultural customs of the day, the civil laws and the actual religious laws?

    What I find most interesting is that students of the Bible become less and less absolute about such determinations the more they study, while those who seldom read it are certain of what it says. That a letter written to followers by an apostle becomes and absolute law about women having to always wear a head covering, when it was more likely a caution of being too liberal for the day, since the people of that region, pagans, were strict about such things.

    There is a great mistake mistake to adopting a position and then using a serious of quotes to substantiate that position and understanding the Bible well enough to form an opinion from what it says.

    But then there is scant evidence that anyone here actually knows the contents, but is merely talking about them in a kind of abstract; not even Cole's notes reductivism.

    what you found was the Levitical law which was removed.

    The woman at the well is a very significant story, because Samaritans (and especially in this case as this was a woman living with a man not her husband) were considered by the Jews to be lower than low. After the tribes split, (North and South) Jeroboam no longer required the Jews in the North to travel to Jerusalem for worship. Jeroboam set up Idols for the northern Jews to worship. The religion of the Samaritans evolved to the point that they held only the Pentateuch (Genesis-Deuteronomy) as being the law of God, rejecting all the books of poetry and prophecy. Furthermore, they claimed their copy of the Pentateuch was the only original copy (a claim still made today by what few Samaritans still survive). Obviously, this was/is a claim rejected by the Jews.

    That Jesus even spoke directly to her was quite astounding (way outside the customs) at the time. That she finally recognized that Jesus was the Christ brought her to bring others (her Oikos) to Christ as well.

    Meanwhile, sin is still sin and the wages are still death.
