The Bible states very clearly that any kind of pleasure is a sin. Is it true? Do you agree?

Some of these sinful practices are listed here in 1 Corinthians 6:9,10 it gives an extensive list & those who practice it will not inherit God’s Kingdom.

No, it doesn't. No, it is not. No, I do not.

If the Bible states it very clearly, then why have you not cited it here?
- PaulLv 72 months ago
Of course not. Many pleasures are of God, and many others are just natural things that God has no objection to.

As foretold, many people today are “lovers of pleasures.” (2nd Timothy 3:4) Just as there is nothing wrong with a healthy, reasonable view of self and money, there is nothing wrong with a balanced view of pleasures. God does not want us to practice severe self-denial or to abstain from wholesome activities that bring enjoyment. The Bible encourages faithful ones: “Go, eat your food with rejoicing, and drink your wine with a cheerful heart.”—Ecclesiastes 9:7.
2nd Timothy 3:4 refers to a pursuit of pleasures that excludes God. Notice that the verse does not say that people would love pleasures more than God, implying that they would have some love for him. It says ‘rather than God.’
Jesus displayed a perfectly balanced view of pleasures. He attended “a marriage feast” and “a big reception feast.” (John 2:1-10; Luke 5:29) At the wedding, he miraculously changed water into wine, adding to the supply, which had run short. And on another occasion, he rejected the self-righteous views of those who criticized him for eating and drinking.—Luke 7:33-36.

Now where on earth do you get that strange idea from? Where in the Bible does it say clearly that any kind of pleasure is a sin? That is absolutely NOT TRUE and No, I don't agree with you.

You are wrong.
One example: Eccl. 10:19: " Breadis for the laughter of the workers, and wine itself makes life rejoice, but money is what meets a response in all things.

Pleasure is not a sin but a gift from God. Sinful pleasure is not from God.

Maybe you should show us where the Bible states any kind of pleasure is a sin. I have never heard that one with out making it read the way I want it to.
