Proverbs 5:5-6 (ESV)

Her feet go down to death;

her steps follow the path to Sheol;

she does not ponder the path of life;

her ways wander, and she does not know it.

The father continues to warn his son about the consequences of going after the woman who attempts to lure him into sexual sin. If he follows after her, he follows her to death. She has left her husband to pursue sexual pleasure outside of her marriage. She lives in a state of moral darkness and in time loses her ability to distinguish between right and wrong. These ancient truths are hotly contested in our current culture. Many will insist that no one has the right to dictate what happens in our bedrooms. But the Scripture teaches that God is concerned about what we do behind closed doors. He cares very much about what goes on in our bedrooms. Though we may be frowned upon or even mocked for holding onto principles of biblical sexuality, let’s stick with God’s design and say “no” to those who would try to persuade us otherwise.
