Just by reading this title, one may readily suspect it is of strong subject matter. You can give it whatever rating you would like, for example “X” or other. In reading our Bible, we can learn that God Almighty shows a relationship between adultery and idolatry. Let’s specifically look at Isaiah 57:3-15.   

3 But draw near hither (here), you sons of the sorceress, the seed of the adulterer and the whore. 4 Against whom do ye sport (talking about flattery and showing off) yourselves? Against whom make ye a wide mouth and draw out the tongue? Are ye not children of transgression, (aren’t you also children who transgress) a seed of falsehood (your origin is from lies and the father of lies.   

5 Enflaming yourselves with idols under every green tree, slaying the children in the valleys under the clifts of the rocks? (child sacrifice was a ritualistic practice) 6 Among the smooth stones of the stream is thy portion; they, they are thy lot: even to them hast thou poured a drink offering, thou hast offered a meat offering. Should I receive comfort in these? (The Lord is angry that they offer to idols and do not honor Him)   

7 Upon a lofty and high mountain have you set thy bed: (sexual overtones are in these verses to relate how the Lord sees their behavior as adulterous and idolatrous) you even went there, and you went there to offer sacrifice.

8 Behind the doors (you did in secret thinking I would not know) also and the posts have you set up for your remembrance: (so you could remember) for you have discovered thyself (open up your (nakedness and loyalty) to another than me, and are gone up; you have enlarged your bed (you have increased your adulterous-idolatrous worshipping, and made yourself a covenant with them; you love their bed where thou saw it.  

9 And you went to the king (the idol pagan worshippers had kings, too) with ointment, and did increase thy perfumes, and did send thy messengers far off, and did debase yourself even unto hell (the underworld, the netherworld). You loved these gods so much that you sold yourself out for handmade idols created from your own imaginations at the expense to even go to hell!  

Here is the message, dear readers. Many people have allowed themselves to be deceived by the devil (and his agents), the great deceiver. The masses have fallen into deception from the highest rankings and below – kings, great professions and whoever – bad decisions imperil the people, but will not escape; but can be forgiven, but not go unnoticed.  

The Bible clearly explains the dangerous outcome of committing the “hellish” acts. I am deeply concerned. I have not heard from anyone saying to the young women and the young men to use abstinence. It is extremely disturbing.  

Use the scriptures to tell anyone you know who needs to hear of the dangers they are pursuing and the blanket deception that is put forth. “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.”
