    1Pet 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.
    The young man in the text was a simple man, he hadn't any back up (GRACE). The lady in the picture is Satan concealed looking for simple men to wear them his garment of sin. our world today is plagued with mobile prostitute looking for simple souls. 1John 3 vs 8

    Probvers 7 says as God children, when we keep his words and lay up his Commandments with us, we have strength to stand against satan and all his demons that try to seduce us. ( In Jesus name.)!

    This young man failed to consider the consequences of his actions. He acted without reasoning and this led to him making a deadly mistake.

    Proverbs 7:22 He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks Jeremiah 3:9 And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks. 10:8 But they are altogether brutish and foolish: the stock is a doctrine of vanities. Revelation 18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

    John 5:47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?
  • Lucinda Palestrant
    Norm,I am sorry you think I am contentious in these matters.The Word tells us to contend for the faith.I believe what you write when you are copying scripture only. But much of what you write is your own imaginings. Proverbs 7 warns against sexual immorality, but you say otherwise.I do not hate correction. This is the end of the discussion for me.
