“For this is the will of God, [even] your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication”- 1 Thessalonians 4:3 KJV
Once upon a time, there was this young boy called Alex who got a call from a friend.
Alex: Hello. Who am I speaking to?
Alex’s friend: What kind of question is that? It’s me Abednego.
Alex: Haha. How are you doing my brother?
Alex’s friend: I am doing great. What about you?
Alex: I am doing great by God’s grace.
Alex’s friend: That’s nice. I went to Esi’s place yesterday.
Alex: Oh okay. That’s nice.
Alex’s friend: Charlie the girl is very good.
Alex: Wait. Don’t tell me you had sex with her.
Alex’s friend: Of course we had sex. Why?
Alex: Eii. You had sex with her.
Alex’s friend: Yes. Is there any problem?
Alex: I told you not to involve yourself in sexual immorality. Alex’s friend: We are in the 21st century. Everything has changed.

WHAT’S THE MEANING OF FORNICATION?
“If you are still fornicating, you are not saved”- Unknown
Once upon a time, there was this young man called Daniel who went to visit his friend.
Daniel’s friend: Just a minute. Oh, Daniel. It’s been a while. Please come inside.
Daniel’s friend: Please have a sit.
Daniel: Thank you, my brother.
Daniel’s friend: So what brings you here?
Daniel: It’s been a while and I just thought of passing by.
Daniel’s friend Thank you, soo much. Esther was here yesterday.
Daniel: Oh okay.
Daniel’s friend: Something happened.
Daniel: What happened?
Daniel’s friend: We had sex.
Daniel: Wow. You should have left her presence when she was tempting you.
Daniel’s friend: I couldn’t resist her.
What does the Holy Bible say about fornication? “Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body”- 1 Corinthians 6:18 KJV. Let me repeat it again. The Holy Bible says that “Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body, but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body”. Daniel sinneth against his own body because he wasn’t able to resist Eunice. In the next chapter, we are going to look at the causes of fornication.
THE MOST IMPORTANT CAUSES OF FORNICATION
We are going to look at the most important causes of fornication which are:
1. Irresponsible parenting.
2. Lack of knowledge.
3. Pressure from peers.
4. Lack of self-control.
5. Generational Curse.
“Train up your child the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it”- Proverbs 22:6 NKJ
Once upon a time, there was this married man called William who saw her daughter vomiting in the bathroom.
William: Are you okay?
William’s daughter: Yes daddy.
William: Are you very sure.
William’s daughter: Yes daddy.
William’s wife: Why. What’s the problem?
William: I saw her vomiting.
William’s wife: Are you okay?
William’s daughter: Yes mummy.
William’s wife: Are you very sure.
William’s daughter: Yes mummy.
William’s wife: Alright.
2 hours later…
William: You are still vomiting. I think we need to take you to the hospital.
William’s daughter: No daddy. I would be fine.
William’s wife: Yes I am coming. Is she still vomiting?
William: Yes. We need to take her to the hospital.
William’s wife: Alright. Let me go and get her hospital card.
20 minutes later…
William’s wife: Let’s go to the hospital.
William’s daughter: There is no need to go the hospital. I would be fine.
William: Come on. Let’s go.
And they sat in a car and went to the hospital.
2 hours later…
Arrives at the hospital…
William: Good morning nurse.
Nurse: Good morning. How may I help you?
William: We are here to see the doctor.
Nurse: Oh okay. Please have a sit.
William: Do you have her hospital card?
William: Yes, please.
Nurse: Alright. Let me have it.
10 minutes later…
Nurse: Please pay this money at the cashier’s office.
William: Alright thanks.
And William went to pay the money at the cashiers’ office.
William: Am back.
Nurse: That’s cool. Can I please have the receipt?
Nurse: Please sit down. I would be with you very soon.
5 minutes later…
Nurse: Please join that queue.
William: Alright thanks.
Nurse: Enjoy the rest of your day.
William: You too.
And William immediately went to join the queue.
An hours later…
William knocks on the door…
Doctor: Yes. Please come inside.
William: Good morning doc.
Doctor: Good morning. Please sit down.
Doctor: How may I help you?
William: My daughter all of a sudden started vomiting today.
Doctor: Oh okay. Does your headache?
William’s daughter: Yes, please.
Doctor: Do you feel dizzy?
William’s daughter: I felt dizzy a while ago.
Doctor: Any mood swings?
William’s daughter: Yes, please.
Doctor: I think your daughter is pregnant.
William: What. It can’t be.
Doctor: But I need to run a test first. Can you please take her to the laboratory to run a pregnancy test?
William: Alright doc.
Doctor: Please take this slip along. Her urine would be needed to run the test.
And they left the Doctor’s office.
Arrives at the laboratory…
William: Good morning.
Laboratory technician: Good morning. How may I help you?
William: We are here to run a pregnancy test.
Laboratory technician: Oh okay. I would need a sample of the person’s urine.
Laboratory Technician: There is a urinal on your right.
William: Alright thanks.
20 minutes later…
William: Here is a sample of my daughters’ urine.
Laboratory technician: Alright. Please have a sit. The test would be ready in an hours’ time.
William: Alright thanks.
Laboratory technician: You are welcome.
An hours later…
Laboratory technician: Doris Wellington.
Laboratory technician: Here is the test results. Enjoy the rest of your day.
William: Thanks. You too.
30 minutes later…
William knocks on the door…
Doctor: Please come inside. I guess that’s the test result.
William: Yes, please.
Doctor: Let me have it.
2 minutes later…
William: What’s the problem doc?
Doctor: Your daughter is pregnant.
William: What. It can’t be.
William’s wife: Hmmm.
William’s daughter: I am very sorry daddy.
William: Shut up. It’s your mum’s fault. All she knows is to gossip around.
William’s wife: Please I don’t want to quarrel in front of the doctor.
One of the most important causes of fornication is irresponsible parenting. Let’s define the two keywords which are irresponsible and parenting. What’s the meaning of irresponsible? Irresponsible simply means not showing a proper sense of responsibility. What’s the meaning of parenting? According to the
Merriam- Webster’s dictionary, parenting simply means the raising of a child by its parent. The Holy Bible says we should “Train up a child the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it”. A lot of the youth don’t know the dangers associated with fornication because of the lack of training by their parents. It’s the duty of a parent to train up his or her child with the word of God (The Holy Bible will help your daughter or son know the dangers associated with fornication). It’s also the duty of a parent to provide for his or her children.
LACK OF KNOWLEDGE
“My people are destroyed for the lack of knowledge”- Hosea 4:6KJV
One of the most important causes of fornication is the lack of knowledge. Let’s define the two most important keywords which are lack and knowledge. What’s the meaning of lack? According to the Webster’s new world dictionary, lack can be defined as the fact or condition of not having any. What’s the meaning of knowledge? According to the Webster’s new world dictionary, knowledge can be defined as acquaintance with facts; range of information, awareness or understanding. Let’s look at a story in the Holy Bible that talks about how Judah had sex with his daughter-in-law. Genesis chapter 38 verse 12 to 26 says “After sometime Judah’s wife died. When he had finished the time of mourning, he and his friend Hirah of Adullam went to Timnah, when his sheep were being sheared. Someone told Tamar that her father-in-law was going to Timnah, to shear his sheep. So, she changed from the widows’ clothes she had been wearing, covered her face with a veil, and sat down at the entrance of Enaim, a town on the road to Timnah. As she well knew, Judah’s youngest son Shelah had now grown up, and yet she had not been given to him in marriage. When Judah saw her he thought she was a prostitute, because she had her face covered. He went over to her at the side of the road and said,
“All right, how much do you charge?”(He did not know that she was his daughter-in-law). She said, “What will you give me?” He answered, “I will send you a young goat from my flock”. She said, “All right if you will give me something to keep a pledge until you send the goat”. “What shall I give you as a pledge?” he asked. She answered, “Your seal with its cord and the stick you are carrying”. He gave them to her. Then they had intercourse, and she became pregnant. Tamar went home, took off her veil and put her widows’ clothes back on. Judah sent his friend Hirah to take the goat and get back the articles he had pledged, but Hirah could not find her. He asked some men Enaim, “Where is the prostitute who was here by the road?” “There has not been a prostitute here,” they answered. He returned to Judah and said, “I couldn’t find her. The men of the place said that there had never been a prostitute there”. Judah said, “Let her keep the things. We don’t want people to laugh at us. I did try to pay her, but you couldn’t find her”. About three months later someone said to Judah, “Your daughter-in-law Tamar has been acting like a whore, and now she is pregnant”. Judah ordered, “Take her out and burn her to death”. As she was being taken out, she sent word to her father-in-law: “I am pregnant by the man who owns these things. Look at them and see’ whose they are- this seal with its cord and this stick”. Judah recognized them and said, “She is right. I have failed in my obligation to her. I should have given her my son Shelah in marriage.” Judah had sex with his daughter-in-law because he didn’t recognize her (Tamar
covered her face with a veil). Judah’s absence of awareness caused him dearly.
PRESSURE FROM PEERS
“Do not be fooled. Bad companions ruin a good character”- Corinthians 15:33GNB
Once upon a time, there was this young man called Nathan who was having a discussion with his friends.
Iyke: How has studies being so far?
Nathan: It’s been okay. I can’t complain.
Addo: I know right.
Kofi: Stella came to visit me yesterday.
Iyke: Mission accomplished.
Nathan: I have told you guys to stop fornicating. Iyke: We are in the 21st century. It’s normal to fornicate these days.
Addo: I just don’t understand you, Nathan. The era of being a virgin is no more.
Iyke: You need to try it.
Nathan: Try what. Sex? No, I won’t.
Kofi: Whatever. It’s normal to fornicate these days.
One of the most important causes of fornication is pressure from peers. A lot of the youth ended up fornicating because of the bad advice of their friends. Let’s look at how Amnon had sexual intercourse with Tamar due to the advice of his friend named Jonadab. 2 Samuel chapter 13 verse 14gnb says “David’s son Absalom had a beautiful unmarried sister named Tamar. Amnon, another of David’s son, fell in love with her. He was so much in love with her that he became ill, because it seemed impossible for him to have her; as a virgin, she was kept from meeting men. But he had a friend, a very shrewd man named Jonadab, the son of David’s brother Shammah. Jonadab said to Amnon, “You are the king’s son, yet day after day I see you looking sad. What’s the matter?” I’m in love with Tamar, the sister of my half-brother Absalom,” he answered. Jonadab said to him, “Pretend that you are ill and go to bed. When your father comes to see you, say to him, ‘Please ask my sister Tamar to come and feed me. I want her to prepare food here where I can see her, and then serve it to me herself.’” So Amnon pretended that he was ill and went to bed. King David went to see him, and Amnon said to him, ‘Please let Tamar come and make a few cakes here where I can see her, and then serve them to me herself”. So David sent word to Tamar in the palace: “Go to Amnon’s house and prepare some food for him.” She went there and found him in bed. She took some dough, prepared it, and made some cakes there where he could see her. Then she baked the cakes and emptied them out of the pan for him to eat, but he wouldn’t. He said “Send everyone away
”- and they all left. Then he said to her, “Bring the cakes here to my bed and serve them to me yourself”. She took the cakes and went over to him. As she offered them to him, he grabbed her and said, “Come to bed with me!” “No,” she said. Don’t force me to do such a degrading thing! That’s awful! How could I ever hold up my head in public again? And you- you would be completely disgraced in Israel. Please speak to the King, and I’m sure that he would give me to you”. But he would not listen to her, and since he was stronger than she was, he overpowered her and raped her”. Amnon committed a sin due to the advice of his friend.
“It’s better to walk alone than with a crowd going in the wrong direction. Do what you feel is right”- Unknown
LACK OF SELF-CONTROL
”If you learn self-control, you can master anything”-Unknown
One of the most important causes of fornication is the lack of self-control. What’s the meaning of self-control? Self-control can be defined as the ability to control oneself, in particular, one’s emotions and desires especially in difficult situations. Let’s look at how David controlled himself by not killing King Saul when he had the chance to do so. 1 Samuel chapter 1 verse 7gnb says “When Saul came back from fighting the Philistines, he was told that David was in the wilderness near Engedi. Saul took 3,000 of the best soldiers in Israel and went looking for David and his men east of wild Goat Rocks. He came to a cave close to some sheep pens by the road and went in to relieve himself. It happened to be the very cave which David and his men were hiding far back in the cave. They said to him, “This is your chance! The Lord has told you that he would put your enemy in your power and you could do to him whatever you wanted to”. David crept over and cut off a piece of Saul’s robe without Saul’s knowing it. But then David’s conscience began to trouble him, and he said to his men, “May the Lord keep me from doing any harm to my master, whom the Lord chose as King! I must not harm him in the least because he is the King chosen by the Lord!” So David convinced his men that they should not attack Saul”. David’s men advised David to kill Saul
but he chose not to. At some point, his conscience began to trouble him. A lot of the youth ended up fornicating due to the lack of self-control (They allowed their desires to rule their decisions). Let me end with a quote which says that “Self-control is knowing you can, but deciding you won’t”. Let me repeat it again. “Self-control is knowing you can, but deciding you won’t”.
“Our ancestors sinned, but now they are gone, and we are suffering for their sins”- Lamentations 5:7GNB
Once upon a time, there was this young guy called Praise who couldn’t stop fornicating so he called his friend to help him put a stop to it.
Praise: Hello bro. Are you at home?
Praise’s friend: No. Why. What’s the problem?
Praise: I have tried as much as possible to stop fornicating but I can’t. I need your help.
Praise’s friend: Hmmm. You have to stop fornicating.
Praise: But I can’t stop it. My mum broke her virginity at a very tender age.
Praise’s friend: I am sure it’s a generational curse.
One of the most important causes of fornication is a generational curse. What’s the meaning of generational curse? A generational curse is a defilement that was or has been passed down from one generation to another. For example, if your parents fornicated at their youthful age, you are also likely to fornicate at your youthful age due to a curse that has been passed down from your parents’ generation to your generation. God cursed David because he had sexual intercourse with Bathsheba and
had her husband killed in battle. “Now in every generation, some of your descendants will die a violent death because you have disobeyed me and taken Uriah’s wife. I swear to you that I will cause someone from your own family to bring trouble on you. You will see it when I take your wives from you and give them to another man, and he will have intercourse with them in broad daylight. You sinned in secret, but I will make this happen in broad daylight for all Israel to see”- 2 Samuel chapter 12 verse 10gnb. Fornication can be transferred from one generation to the other due to a curse that has been imposed on a generation. In the next chapter, we are going to look at the consequences of fornication.
“We break and destroy every generational curse that has been imposed on your family. If you believe say Amen”.
THE MOST IMPORTANT CONSEQUENCES OF FORNICATION
“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful”- Psalm 1:1 KJV
There was this little boy called Ivan who was about to use the gas stove when his mum approached him.
Ivan’s mum: What are you doing in the kitchen.
Ivan: I want to use the gas stove.
Ivan’s mum: No.
Ivan: But mum.
Ivan’s mum: You don’t know how to use it and besides do you know the consequences it might bring if something bad happens.
Someone might ask “so what are the most important consequences of fornication? They are as follows:
1. You defile your own body when you fornicate.
2. An evil spirit (devil) gets legal permission into the life of a fornicator.
3. It exposes you to sexually transmitted diseases/infections.
4. It leads to sexual dysfunction later in marriage.
5. It leads to eternal death.
YOU DEFILE YOUR OWN BODY WHEN YOU FORNICATE
“Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body, but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body”- 1 Corinthians 6:18 KJV
Once upon a time, there was this young guy called Eze who arrived home very late.
Eze’s brother: Why are you now coming home at this time?
Eze: I was studying at school.
Eze’s brother: Alright. Come closer. What’s that red thing on your shirt?
Eze: It’s nothing.
Eze’s brother: You slept with your girlfriend today. How many times have I told you to desist from sex?
Eze: It’s my life.
Eze’s brother: You have defiled your body.
Eze: Why? Do you see any dirt on my body?
The first most important consequences of fornication are that you defile your own body when you fornicate. What’s the meaning of defile? Defile simply means to make something or someone unclean or impure or to corrupt the purity or perfection of something or someone. Whenever you fornicate, you become an unclean being in the sight of God.
AN EVIL SPIRIT (DEMON) GETS LEGAL PERMISSION INTO THE LIFE OF A FORNICATOR
One day Kofi was watching the kids playing football outside when his elder brother approached him.
Kofi: Hey. How was work today?
Kofi’s brother: Hmmm.
Kofi: What’s the problem?
Kofi’s brother: There is something fighting me and my business.
Kofi: It’s because you keep on fornicating. Evil spirits are working against you.
The second most important consequence of fornication is that an evil spirit (demon) gets legal permission into the life of a fornicator. Who is an evil spirit or what’s the meaning of evil spirit? The Holy Bible asserts evil spirit as the angels of Satan. Whenever you fornicate, demons or evil spirit gets legal permission into your life (They have the ability to destroy the life of an individual).
IT EXPOSES YOU TO SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES/INFECTIONS
There was this young man called Harold who saw his younger sister crying profusely.
Harold: Why are you crying?
Harold’s sister: I want to kill myself.
Harold: Don’t say that. What’s the problem?
Harold’s sister: I am HIV positive.
Harold: What do you mean you are HIV positive? I don’t get it.
Harold’s sister: My boyfriend infected me with the disease.
Harold: What. Are you trying to say that you had pre-marital sex with your boyfriend?
The third most important consequence of fornication is that it exposes you to sexually transmitted disease/infection. Let’s look at what the World Health Organization had to say about sexually transmitted infection/diseases.
1. More than 1 million sexually transmitted infections are acquired every day worldwide.
2. Each year, there are an estimated 357 million new infections with 1 to 4 STI’s: chlamydia, gonorrhoea, syphilis and trichomoniasis.
3. More than 500 million people are estimated to have genital infection with herpes simplex virus (HSV).
4. More than 290 million women have a human papillomavirus (HPV) infection.
5. The majority of STI’s have no symptoms or only mild symptoms that may not be recognized as an STI.
6. STI’s such as HSV type 2 and syphilis can increase the risk of HIV acquisition.
7. Over 900,000 pregnant women were infected with syphilis resulting in approximately 350,000 adverse birth outcomes including stillbirth in 2012.
8. In some cases, STI’s can have serious reproductive health consequences beyond the immediate impact of the infection itself (eg: infertility or mother-to-child transmission).
9. Drug resistance, especially for gonorrhoea is a major threat to reducing the impact of STI’s worldwide.

IT LEADS TO SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION LATER IN MARRIAGE
Mansa: Hello Ama.
Ama: Hello Mansa. How are you doing today?
Mansa: I am doing great. What about you?
Ama: Same here.
Mansa: Where are you now?
Ama: I am at home.
Mansa: Alright. I have a very big problem. Can I share it with you?
Ama: Of course yes.
Mansa: I don’t feel like having sexual activity with my husband anymore.
Ama: Why are you saying this?
Mansa: He is soo weak in bed.
Ama: Wait. Did you involve yourself in illicit sex before marriage?
The fourth most important consequences of fornication is that it leads to sexual dysfunction later in marriage. What’s the meaning of sexual dysfunction? According to Wikipedia, sexual dysfunction is difficulty experienced by an individual or couple during any stage of normal sexual activity. Most people who fornicated in their youthful age or earlier in life find it difficult having sexual activity with their spouse. A married woman once told his husband “You are too weak in bed. I wish Kofi was here”.
IT LEADS TO ETERNAL DEATH
“Eternal death is the fate that awaits all people who ultimately reject God, reject the gospel of his son Jesus Christ and remain in their sin and disobedience. It’s death that continues through eternity (a spiritual death that is experienced on a continual basis)”
One day a young man was having sexual activity with his girlfriend when he had a heart attack which resulted in his death.
Angel: What are you doing here?
Young man: I had a heart attack.
Angel: Too bad. You don’t belong here.
Young man: Wait. What are you saying?
Angel: Fornication is a sin. Hell is where you belong.
Young man: Please forgive me.
Angel: It’s too late.
The fifth most important consequence of fornication is that it leads to eternal death. Let’s first define the two most important keywords which are eternal and death. What’s the meaning of eternal? According to the Webster’s new world dictionary, eternal simply means everlasting. What’s the meaning of death? According to the Webster’s new world dictionary, death is the permanent ending of all life in a person. Fornication is a sin against God so those who fornicate will perish in hell if they don’t ask for forgiveness before their death.
HOW TO OVERCOME FORNICATION
One day Kofi was reading the Holy Bible when his son approached him.
Kofi’s son: Dad.
Kofi: Yes my son.
Kofi’s son: Can I please discuss something with you?
Kofi’s son: I want to stop fornicating. How am I supposed to overcome it?
REPENT, ASK GOD TO FORGIVE YOU AND ACCEPT HIM AS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness”- 1 John 1:9
The first thing that you need to do to be able to overcome fornication is to repent and ask God to forgive you. Someone might ask “so what’s repent? Repent simply means to feel or overcome sincere regret or remorse for one’s wrongdoings or sin. Let me share a story with you. There was this young man called Timmons who went to steal an item but was caught as he was about to run. This is what ensued between Timmons and the owner of the item he stole.
Owner of the item: You know the item you are holding isn’t yours. Don’t you?
Timmons: Yes. I know it isn’t mine. I am very sorry. My son is in the hospital receiving treatment and I don’t have money to pay the bills that’s why I came to steal your item, sell it and use the money to pay the bills. I sincerely regret what I have just done.
Owner of the item: Alright. You can go.
Timmons: What about the item that I stole.
Owner of the item: Sell it and use it to pay the hospital bills.
Timmons: Thank you.
Timmons was set free because he sincerely regretted his actions. Someone might ask “since I have sincerely regretted my actions, how am I supposed to ask God for forgiveness and accept him as my Lord and personal saviour? Please say this prayer after me.
“Lord Jesus, I believe you died for me and rose again so that I can have a new life. I give myself to you in response. I open the door of my life to you and receive you as my Lord and saviour. Thank you for forgiving my sin and giving me eternal life. Take control of my life and make my life be lived to your praise and glory. Amen”
LEARN TO CONTROL YOURSELF
“You have power over your mind-not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength”- Marcus Aurelius
Once upon a time, there was this young lady called Victoria who approached his father.
Victoria’s father: Oh it’s you. Come and sit beside me.
Victoria sits beside his dad…
Victoria’s father: Do you know that Kwame’s daughter is pregnant? I know you wouldn’t disappoint us like Kwame’s daughter.
Victoria’s father: Why. What’s the problem?
Victoria: I am very sorry Dad.
Victoria’s father: Why are you saying that?
Victoria: I am also pregnant.
Victoria’s father: Eii. What did you just say?
Victoria: I wasn’t able to control myself.
One of the most important skills in life is self-control. What’s the meaning of self-control? According to the Webster’s new world dictionary, self-control is the control of oneself or one’s own emotions, desires, actions etc. God cursed David because he wasn’t able to control his sexual desires. “Now in every generation, some of your descendants will die a violent death because you have disobeyed me and have taken Uriah’s wife. I swear to you that I will cause someone from your own family to bring trouble on you”- 2 Samuel chapter 12 verse 11gnb. Someone might ask “so how am I supposed to control myself?” Very simple. By casting out negative thoughts that influence your actions, desires etc from your mind. Satan feeds our minds with negative thoughts and it’s up to you to cast them out.
“The desire or urge to have sex would always be there. It’s up to you to control yourself”.
We have finally come to the end of this book and I hope the Fiifi Foundation has been able to teach you how to overcome fornication. The only way you can benefit from this book is by acting on whatever that has been written. To those who haven’t fornicated before, know that God is really proud of you. Fornication would bring numerous curses and punishment into your life. Don’t do it!!!
