Churchgoers have joined the ranks of cohabitating couples
One of the first things Mike Mobley did as a new believer in Christ was move in with his girlfriend. After hearing the gospel at his girlfriend’s church, he left behind his pursuit of an acting career in Hollywood, and the couple moved from California to Tennessee. They found a two-bedroom apartment and planned to sleep in separate rooms and save money for marriage.

Mobley and his girlfriend began visiting congregations. They visited one a couple of times and sought membership. But Mobley stormed out of a meeting with church leaders when they denied the couple’s application without explanation: “I didn’t understand why.”

Mobley’s girlfriend said the reason was that they lived together. Over the course of a year—one that included a seven-page letter from Mobley’s stepmom, many conversations with Christian friends, and a growing discomfort he now says “was the Holy Spirit convicting me”—Mobley ...

Nowadays churches seem to be into making people feel " comfortable" and afraid to speak on sin . I agree with you lady virtue and English rose. That name English rose reminds me of a song from when I was a teen . I believe it was by the last resort! Oi!!!

It does seem that preaching against fornication is relatively rare. People act as though it is just inevitable. Solid, hard, Scriptural preaching will force its listeners to make a decision: either repent or stop listening to the preaching.

I recall once visiting a church which a couple who were "shacking up" were allowed to join and be members in good standing. I never went back to that church.

Surely a new believer is forgiven if he repents. We do know everything all at once. We need to grow in grace and the knowledge of GOD.

Maybe Pastors just aren't preaching against fornication anymore. How do these folks sit under preaching and think its ok to shack up and profess Christ? Me tinks something is amiss in most churches.

Even if you are living together without sex (which is unlikely), you are still unduly putting yourself in the way of temptation and it is not a good witness to your neighbour

I'm glad they called them "churchgoers" since that can suggest nominal's and Liberals too. We are all aware from experience that Satan sends all kinds of people into churches both to confuse and pretend. Then of course there are many counterfeit churches.

Mark 10:9 What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
= Which means the institution of marriage as well as individual marriages.

Matt 19:4 Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, 5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
