Prostitutes

 

Someones’s daughter                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Prostitutes are in no danger of finding their present life so satisfactory that they cannot turn to God: the proud, the avaricious, the self-righteous, are in that danger.”                                                                                                                                                                                -C.S. Lewis

Pride is the motivating force behind Satan’s attacks on Christians. Pride is what makes Lucifer behave the way he does, it is what makes him evil.

Is it any wonder that God hates it so? Rather than growing in the image of God, we grow in the image of Satan. This is no small matter. Evil transforms us into something both sad and hideous.

Just in case you think you’re getting off scot-free we discover that there are companion sins to pride: greed and self-righteousness. (We can tack on others that are just as corrosive to the human soul.)

Do you feel you’re better than others? Does your ”gift’ tmake you special? Pride is what turns men into devils. Often we become the thing we hate. Especially when we aew “walking in the flesh.” Read Galatians 5:19-21.

I believe that a prostitute is closer to God and God’s Kingdom than the proud and the self-absorbed. Typically, a prostitute has no problem in seeing their sin.  They allow themself to be degraded and used every night. They are surrounded by the evilness of man.

“My people ask wooden idols for advice;
    they ask those sticks of wood to advise them!
Like prostitutes, they have chased after other gods
    and have left their own God.”

Hosea 4:12

  1. You are so correct, those in the sex trade have no problem seeing their sin. Those in real trouble are those who prostitute God and want to call it worship.
