  2. 2 Cor 4:4 The sin of fornication is like all sexual sins, when a person is in the sin, they are blinded to whats right and wrong, can become defensive, and will justify the sin.
    1. Prov 28:13 This in reality is a cover up, an attempt to ignore the conviction of the Holy Spirit when he is trying to speak to us.
