Proverbs 22:14 NIV

By February 22, 2023No Comments

“The mouth of an adulterous woman is a deep pit; a man who is under the Lord’s wrath falls into it.” 

Solomon is talking about a prostitute in his reference to an adulteress. She uses clever language to deceive the person already walking in sin. The person living a life of sin takes very little convincing to step deeper into the temptation of the sexual predator. However a very interesting side of this verse is that it is also referring to theology. False doctrine is often introduced into the Hebrew world by deceptive foreigners, often a seductress. We certainly see those living lives in rebellion to God very accepting of false teaching. They are not only open to it but they often embrace it and spread it as well. How many cults do we see engaging in sexual sin, polygamy and other perversions, as a key foundational principle of their deception. Also, how often do we see Christian ministers and leaders taken out of influence by sexual sin. It is a prime area of attract by the evil one. There is a deep pit waiting ‬for the person who lives in sexual sin or who deceived others with false doctrine. Today examine your heart and pursue clean living and sound doctrine. #BeTheEdge

“Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.” Ephesians‬ ‭4‬:‭14‬ ‭NIV‬‬
