Prostitution of the Senses

These pleasures of the senses that God in His goodness has given us here on earth can be easily prostituted and have been.

Here are a few Biblical examples.

“At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another.” Titus 3:3

“He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a short time.” Hebrews 11:25

“They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done. Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.” 2 Peter 2:13

“A fool finds pleasure in evil conduct, but a man of understanding delights in wisdom.” Proverbs 10:23

“Let all who are simple come in here!" she says to those who lack judgment. Stolen water is sweet; food eaten in secret is delicious!” Proverbs 9:16, 17
