Dear friends, Whoremongering, in its biblical context, signifies engaging in or promoting sexual relations outside the sacred bond of marriage. This term is a severe warning against a behavior that is morally reprehensible and out of alignment with God’s divine plan for humanity. The Bible teaches us that our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, and as such, they are to be treated with respect, purity, and sanctity.
The ancient scriptures present numerous examples where individuals, swayed by momentary desires, have faced dire consequences for their actions. The consequences often were not just limited to the individual but impacted families, communities, and even entire nations. By understanding the deeper essence of these stories, one learns that God values the sanctity of relationships and has set boundaries for our own well-being.
Brother and sister, it is our moral duty, as followers of Christ, to uphold the divine commandments, ensuring that we lead a life of purity. It is not just about avoiding certain actions, but also about nurturing a pure heart and mind. Temptations abound, and the path to righteousness is narrow, but the reward for those who resist these temptations and walk in the light of the Lord is immeasurable.
Dear friends, now let’s see the Bible scriptures below that talk about Whoremongering.
“Do not prostitute thy daughter, to cause her to be a whore; lest the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness”
“Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge”
1 Corinthians 6:15-16
“Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh”
“For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit. She also lieth in wait as for a prey, and increaseth the transgressors among men”
1 Corinthians 6:9-10
“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God”
“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness”
“But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints”
1 Thessalonians 4:3-5
“For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour; Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God”
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death”
“For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie”
“And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart”
“For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil: But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell”
“To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman. Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids. For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adultress will hunt for the precious life”
“Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire”
“To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words; Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God. For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead. None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life”
“But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery”
1 Corinthians 5:9-11
“I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolator, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat”
“Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father: but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth his substance”
“Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth. Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths. For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her. Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death”
“A foolish woman is clamorous: she is simple, and knoweth nothing. For she sitteth at the door of her house, on a seat in the high places of the city, To call passengers who go right on their ways: Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: and as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him, Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant. But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell”
“The mouth of strange women is a deep pit: he that is abhorred of the Lord shall fall therein”
“And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?”
2 Chronicles 21:11
“Moreover he made high places in the mountains of Judah and caused the inhabitants of Jerusalem to commit fornication, and compelled Judah thereto”
“Thou hast built thy high place at every head of the way, and hast made thy beauty to be abhorred, and hast opened thy feet to every one that passed by, and multiplied thy whoredoms”
“That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words”
“My people ask counsel at their stocks, and their staff declareth unto them: for the spirit of whoredoms hath caused them to err, and they have gone a whoring from under their God. They sacrifice upon the tops of the mountains, and burn incense upon the hills, under oaks and poplars and elms, because the shadow thereof is good: therefore your daughters shall commit whoredom, and your spouses shall commit adultery”
“They say, If a man put away his wife, and she go from him, and become another man’s, shall he return unto her again? shall not that land be greatly polluted? but thou hast played the harlot with many lovers; yet return again to me, saith the Lord . Lift up thine eyes unto the high places, and see where thou hast not been lien with. In the ways hast thou sat for them, as the Arabian in the wilderness; and thou hast polluted the land with thy whoredoms and with thy wickedness. Therefore the showers have been withholden, and there hath been no latter rain; and thou hadst a whore’s forehead, thou refusedst to be ashamed”
“And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab”
1 Kings 3:16
“Then came there two women, that were harlots, unto the king, and stood before him”
