If I have been defiled by fornication in the past, have I lost my birthright and the ability to be an overcomer?
[#8 Q2] In the Bible, we see the shifting of the birthright on several occasions. In one example, Reuben lost his birthright to Joseph because of his defilement. I am thankful that nothing can change our salvation and that we are cleansed from all our sins through the blood of Jesus. But what if I have been defiled by fornication in the past? Have I lost my birthright? Will I no longer be able to be an overcomer and inherit the millennial kingdom because of the sin of fornication? How do we know if we have lost our birthright?
It is important to point out that these brothers do not presume to have the answers to our questions. Rather, they are willing to provide a response in fellowship, and to encourage us to personally go to the Lord and consider all these things before Him.
