Do Not Defile Yourself with the World

Why did the Lord replace the Canaanites with the Israelites? After listing various sexual perversions that Israel was not to commit, consider what He told them, “Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you” (Leviticus 18:24).
One of the reasons the Lord removed the Canaanites from their land and brought in the Israelites was because of their sexual perversions.
However, the Lord wanted Israel to know that they needed to avoid the same sins, lest He also remove them.
Moreover, no nation or church is exempt today from the same problems.
Let us be pure in sexual matters.
