Not only was Rahab the harlot was forgiven, but we find later God gave her a family and her name appears in the family line of our Lord as we read in Matthew 1:5.

Her name is found in Hebrews 11:31 as an example of the woman of faith.

Not only this, but her name is again found in the book of James at 2:25 as a woman who had living and active faith.

No matter how great a sinner he/she is, once we trust Christ we are saved. Our past, present, and future sins are forgiven because while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, as read in Romans 5:8.

God not only forgives prostitutes, but restores them and includes them in His plan of Kingdom building as we saw in case Rahab. But if we continue in that sin, then it is sexual immorality and the lake of fire which the second death awaits him/her as we read in Revelation 21:8.

The church in Corinth had many that were going to prostitutes. Paul told them they were joining Jesus to prostitutes. Then went on to say that every other sin is outside the body but sexual sin. 

The believers in Corinth were living in all kinds of sin. They came to communion to get drunk, and many were living in fornication. But, Paul still called them saints. Because they had trusted Jesus to save them. They were just baby Christians or believers. 

We have the same today in many churches where the baby Christians never grow. They stay living in immorality. But they will reap what they sow. And they many just lose their life if they do not change their ways. 

But as Paul said, their spirit will be saved in the day of the lord, because our works have nothing to do with salvation by grace. Jesus paid for the sin of prostitution and going to one. 

Many sow there wild oats and then pray for a crop failure. We do reap what we sow. We should abstain from all ungodliness, and live lives pleasing to the Lord. Not for salvation, but because we are saved. Keeping from doing these things saves no one. We do not do these things because we are saved, not to save us, that was done at the cross.
