Discussion for Ezekiel 23:8

  • Anonymous on Ezekiel 23:8
    I 've always been curious about these verses. Does it mean that any time a woman 's breast is fondled she is committing a whoredom? Were these women married to someone else and that 's why? And what about actresses. Even in some pg movies there are scenes where a woman lets a man touch her breast. Does this mean the actress is committing a whoredom?
