Promiscuity - Indiscriminate sexual activity with various partners
"A nation that continues to break God's law will be broken by the God of law." What does this mean?
My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.
- Proverbs 1:10
Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men.
Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away.
- Proverbs 4:14-15
Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love Him.
Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth He any man:
But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
- James I:12-15
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
- I John 2:16
Widespread sexual promiscuity in our society has led to a widespread epidemic of sexually-transmitted diseases. Having sex with different partners is not only dangerous spiritually, emotionally, and mentally, it is also dangerous physically. There are millions of people suffering from gonorrhea, syphilis, genital herpes, and A.I.D.S. (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome), and other sexually-transmitted diseases, who can testify of this truth.
The following story illustrates the sad reality of pornography, masturbation, and promiscuity.
It all started when Ned went to Warren's home when Warren's parents were not home. He had some "neat" things to show Ned, he said.
After Ned arrived, Warren showed him several pornographic magazines he had collected and hid in his room. At first Ned was shocked, but he did not dare to show this to Warren, and he ended up spending nearly an hour looking at the pictures with his friend.
"Here, take a couple with you and hide them at home," Warren said. And again, Ned did not dare say "No."
At home, Ned began to look at his magazines each night. Later he purchased more. Masturbation became a connected problem. Later, he met a nice girl - they dated, were engaged, and married.
