I feel in that particular context, the connotation of "sexual immorality" is
most likely the the best solution. Immorality is realy too broad a category
and fornication is usually considered to be sexual relations between an
unmarried man and woman, which is more narrow than the term porneia covers
(it includes adultery, fornication, homosexuality, and bestiality)
