Sex: Adultery

The next few posts will deal with questions about sex, sin management, and smoking marijuana.

Question
Is it okay to have a Christian, who is living with his fiancée, to partake as a church decision-board member? The knowledge about his living condition was found out after he was selected to be a board member.

Answer
If you mean “living with his fiancée” as a euphemism for sexual immorality then there is some clear teaching in 1 Corinthians 5 about such. If “living with his fiancée” means “renting a room” then that is something else but probably not a good idea. I am not trying to be coy, but the meaning of words is important. The sexual standard in Scripture is the same for everyone, clergy, leader, or laity. There is not one standard for one group and another standard for another group. These problems arise in church because we are all fallen creatures. There really is not enough information provided for me to give you a precise answer.
