I almost SHUDDER to bring this topic out in an open forum like this but here goes: Proverbs 6:32-33 says v33 But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding:he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul. v32 A wound and dishonour shall he get;and his reproach shall NOT(emphasis mine)be wiped away. I am going through a situation where my "past" keeps coming to the surface.I will only say that it is NOT any physical involvement with anyone and I am NOT,nor do I plan to repeat any past sins or mistakes.BUT...in my past I lived promiscuously.It was part of my family history that I am not proud of and I just seemed to follow right into it.Getting saved definitely changed my attitude towards it but it didn't take away my personal weakness for it as there were several other instances that occurred after I got Saved.It seems that my past keeps coming back to haunt me and now that I am involved in a godly relationship with a wonderful christian woman it is once again causing problems...NOT ACTUAL ACTS OF SIN...but rather,people from my past that keep popping up.The REPROACH of my past sins just keeps nagging at me even in the present...and is a threat to the stability of my current relationship.My fiancee has some definite and obvious "sensitivities" toward this subject and it is causing discord between us.The big problem is that when I removed myself from these past "relationships"(SINS),I didn't leave "enemies" behind me and a few of them have contacted me or I have run into them in public and since I don't treat ANYBODY in an ugly,rude or disrespectful way my lack of animosity has been taken as a desire to maintain contact by them....and my fiancee.I have tried to let all concerned know that I have gotten right with the Lord and am trying to live my life for Christ.I don't know what else to do. However,the CONTENT of this passage of scripture really makes me wonder if I can ever have any PEACE with God...the part about "destroyeth his own soul" and "his reproach shall not be wiped away" just leaves me wondering if I have any hope at all. To those of you who may reply to this post just let me remind you of one thing......"Let he that is without sin cast the first stone.." My heart,soul and mind hurts over this...I need help.I have asked the Lord to forgive me for the sins of the past but I still hurt over this. Greg Sr.
