Chastity: Whoredom in the Churches

Dear concerned Christian,

Thanks for your interest in the topic of my website and God bless your day.

Yes, it's true that God commanded Hosea to marry a "wife of whoredoms." My understanding of the verses concerning Hosea's marriage is that Hosea's act of charity was commanded as a way to provide a real life representation of God's forgiveness of His people.

I am aware that the monogamist "Christian" churches of the world are full of adulterous men. It is the obvious outcome of the monogamist's idolatrous worship of women. When a man realizes his "god" (woman) is not perfect, he searches for another idol. He did indeed bow in worship of her when he proposed and when he finally realizes that she does not provide what she as his "god" was hoped to provide, he turns and searches for other gods. That is what happens daily in the churches of America where monogamy is the cornerstone of the churches instead of the True Cornerstone, Christ.

As for a verse castigating men, there certainly are many such verses. Do a search of any online Bible for adulter* and you will find dozens of verses on that subject, most condemning men. There are two aspects to impurity; one is impurity in general and the other is specifically forbidden impurities such as adultery, incest, beastiality, etc., all of which carry their own penalties. If God's Word were carried out as all Christians should desire, the overwhelming number of death penalty convictions for sexual impurity would fall upon men for the homosexuals of the world would be wiped out not to mention the repeat drunkards responsible for much of the whoredom, etc. The Lord commands in Deuteronomy 21:20 "And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son [is] stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; [he is] a glutton, and a drunkard."

If the law of God which certainly brings peace and quiet in the community were followed by the judges today then we would have no homosexuals and no drunkards and certainly no adulterers but the churches are against following the Bible. Many Christians even forget that we once followed the Bible in the laws of our own country and some were never even taught the laws of the Bible.

If your church has men committing acts with whores*, bringing whoredom upon the land, then they must be punished. Tell your church leaders.

That said, I disagree with your assertion that men in the churches are committing acts of whoredom at a rate of 10 to 1. The fact is, every time that a woman divorces her husband she has committed an act of whoredom because a woman may not unwife herself from her husband. She has put herself under his authority as much as God puts a daughter under the authority of her father when she is born. She cannot undo that. 67 percent of all divorces in America are filed by women who refer to themselves as Christians. Only a third of divorces are filed by men. When entire churches and societies believe that the relationship between a man and his woman is breakable by the woman, that entire society is guilty of whoredom for only a harlot/whore may unloose herself from a man's authority to go with another man.

God bless your studies of God's Word, Pastor Don

*whore - a woman who gives herself sexually to a man without putting herself permanently under his authority and that man is a fornicator. If she is not free to put herself under the authority of the man because she is married to another man (legally or not) then she is a whore AND an adulteress and the man who lays with her is an adulterer.
