I just believe that every sin under the eyes of God will have it's consequences. Any sin, it does not line up with God's word. This is the reason our churches are in the chaos as it is tody. We are not crucifying those fleshly, demonic spirits, but allowing them to grow;as well as with incestral marriages that seem to be uprising on the spiritual battlefield today. it is a curse to the God;s people according to scripture.
