This webtract dissertation will deal with addicts, predators, and offenders - and there are many.
Some will adamently assert that a majority of men are addicted to being held down by gravity, to desiring the presence of sunlight, breathing air, and starting their vehicles to go to work each day. Others would claim that human males are addicted to certain bodily cravings, such as relentlessly urinating and defecating.
To be fair, however, one would wonder not merely how many female humans are similarly and also addicted (if such is the case) to not simply incessantly urinating and defecating as bodily cravings, but also being held down by gravity, desiring the presence of sunlight, breathing air, and doing household duties each day.
It behoooves both the author of this piece, and the readers, to define the term "addict," and such involves an abnormal preoccupation with habitually doing some bodily action repeatedly, such as being held down by gravity, desiring the presence of sunlight, breathing air, etc. Moreover, the words "abnormal" and "preoccupation" associated with "habitually" and "repeatedly" must be analyzed and elaborated upon.
Was not Tamar a sexual addict, predator, and sex offender according to the following (for the reasonable cause stated)?
Genesis 38:11 Then Judah said to Tamar his daughter-in-law, "Remain a widow in your father's house, till Shelah my son grows up" --for he feared that he would die, like his brothers. So Tamar went and dwelt in her father's house.
12 In course of time the wife of Judah, Shua's daughter, died; and when Judah was comforted, he went up to Timnah to his sheepshearers, he and his friend Hirah the Adullamite.
13 And when Tamar was told, "Your father-in-law is going up to Timnah to shear his sheep,"
14 she put off her widow's garments, and put on a veil, wrapping herself up, and sat at the entrance to Enaim, which is on the road to Timnah; for she saw that Shelah was grown up, and she had not been given to him in marriage.
15 When Judah saw her, he thought her to be a harlot, for she had covered her face.
16 He went over to her at the road side, and said, "Come, let me come in to you," for he did not know that she was his daughter-in-law. She said, "What will you give me, that you may come in to me?"
17 He answered, "I will send you a kid from the flock." And she said, "Will you give me a pledge, till you send it?"
18 He said, "What pledge shall I give you?" She replied, "Your signet and your cord, and your staff that is in your hand." So he gave them to her, and went in to her, and she conceived by him.
19 Then she arose and went away, and taking off her veil she put on the garments of her widowhood.
20 When Judah sent the kid by his friend the Adullamite, to receive the pledge from the woman's hand, he could not find her.
21 And he asked the men of the place, "Where is the harlot who was at Enaim by the wayside?" And they said, "No harlot has been here."
22 So he returned to Judah, and said, "I have not found her; and also the men of the place said, 'No harlot has been here.'"
23 And Judah replied, "Let her keep the things as her own, lest we be laughed at; you see, I sent this kid, and you could not find her."
24 About three months later Judah was told, "Tamar your daughter-in-law has played the harlot; and moreover she is with child by harlotry." And Judah said, "Bring her out, and let her be burned."
25 As she was being brought out, she sent word to her father-in-law, "By the man to whom these belong, I am with child." And she said, "Mark, I pray you, whose these are, the signet and the cord and the staff."
26 Then Judah acknowledged them and said, "She is more righteous than I, inasmuch as I did not give her to my son Shelah." And he did not lie with her again.
And was not Ruth the Moabitess (in the Hebrew-Jewish geneological line of David and Jesus Christ) a sexual addict, sexual predator, and sex offender engaging in sexual molestation, sexual assault, and sexual abuse according to the following record"
Ruth 3:4 But when he lies down, observe the place where he lies; then, go and uncover his feet and lie down; and he will tell you what to do."
5 And she replied, "All that you say I will do."
6 So she went down to the threshing floor and did just as her mother-in-law had told her.
7 And when Boaz had eaten and drunk, and his heart was merry, he went to lie down at the end of the heap of grain. Then she came softly, and uncovered his feet, and lay down.
8 At midnight the man was startled, and turned over, and hey, a woman lay at his feet!
9 He said, "Who are you?" And she answered, "I am Ruth, your maidservant; spread your robe over your maidservant, for you are next of kin."
10 And he said, "May you be blessed by the LORD, my daughter; you have made this last kindness greater than the first, in that you have not gone after young men, whether poor or rich.
11 And now, my daughter, do not fear, I will do for you all that you ask, for all my fellow townsmen know that you are a woman of worth.
12 And now it is true that I am a near kinsman, yet there is a relative nearer than I.
13 Remain this night, and in the morning, if he will do the part of the next of kin for you, well; let him do it; but if he is not willing to do the part of the next of kin for you, then, as the LORD lives, I will do the part of the next of kin for you. Lie down until the morning."
14 So she lay at his feet until the morning, but arose before one could recognize another; and he said, "Let it not be known that the woman came to the threshing floor."
15 And he said, "Bring the mantle you are wearing and hold it out." So she held it, and he measured out six measures of barley, and laid it upon her; then she went into the city.
Use of only the best, or correct, word is often crucial for avoiding serious misunderstanding having dire consequences. For example, a faithful yet concubine-desiring husband might non-wisely state: "I need a new (or another or a different) woman" -- all of which convey the impression that he wants to first disown and divorce the wife he already has. His frequently-understandable Old-Testament-patriarchs-imitating intention to acquire at least one supplemental concubine (probably a non-State-registered/private-contract common-law one) is best proclaimed with: "I need an additional wife" (using the word wife instead of merely the word woman so that he precludes the potential misconstrual of him wanting to commit adultery with a supplemental or additional woman he is not presently married with (and not "to" -- which "to" would insinuate requiring a third-party officiating negotiator, mediator, judge, or clergy to join them).
Again, it behoooves both the author of this piece, and the readers, to define the terms "addict," "predator," "offender," "sexual harassment," "molestation," "sexual assault," and "sexual abuse," involving supposedly "abnormal" "preoccupation" with "habitually" doing some bodily action in "excess" (what that is and is not) repeatedly, such as being held down by gravity, desiring the presence of sunlight, breathing air, etc. Thus, the words: "abnormal" and "preoccupation" associated with "habitually" and "repeatedly" must be analyzed and elaborated upon.
Clearly, when a woman becomes an addict, she often then affects others as a predator, and becomes an offender -- and the Bible is full of examples of such deviant and reprehensible misbehaviors:
The first case involves the origin of heathen peoples based on incestuous conception:
Genesis 19:30 Now Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the hills with his two daughters, for he was afraid to reside in Zoar; so he dwelt in a cave with his two daughters.
31 And the first-born said to the younger, "Our father is old, and there is not a man on earth to come in to us after the manner of all the earth.
32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve offspring through our father."
33 So they made their father drink wine that night; and the first-born went in, and lay with her father; he did not know when she lay down or when she arose.
34 And on the next day, the first-born said to the younger, "Hey, I lay last night with my father; let us make him drink wine tonight also; then you go in and lie with him, that we may preserve offspring through our father."
35 So they made their father drink wine that night also; and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose.
36 Thus both the daughters of Lot were with child by their father.
37 The first-born bore a son, and called his name Moab; he is the father of the Moabites to this day.
38 The younger also bore a son, and called his name Benammi; he is the father of the Ammonites to this day.
Clearly, the two apparently-non-lesbian non-named daughters of Lot were addicted to situational captivity, plus impatiently-faithless sexual craving, then becoming both sexual predators and sex offenders.
Next case scenario:
Genesis 30:20 Then Leah said, "God has endowed me with a good dowry; now my husband will honor me, because I have borne him six sons"; so she called his name Zebulun.
Genesis 30:21 Afterwards she bore a daughter, and called her name Dinah.
Genesis 34:1 Now Dinah the daughter of Leah, whom she had borne to Jacob, went out to visit the women of the land.....
[ NOTE: What "women of the land?" Canaanites, with their pagan idolatry and practices? How was that a violation and disregard against:
Ruth 2:22 And Naomi said to Ruth, her daughter-in-law, "It is well, my daughter, that you go out with his maidens, lest in another field you be molested."
Proverbs 5:6 she does not take heed to the path of life; her ways wander, and she does not know it.
Proverbs 13:20 He who walks with wise men becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
Titus 2:4 and so train the young women to love their husbands and children,
Titus 2:5 to be sensible, chaste, domestic, kind, and submissive to their husbands, that the word of God may not be discredited.
To wander into the lasciviously-dangerous territory of barbaric Canaanites is NOT being domestic in stark contrast to prudently and safely staying at home! ]
Thus, Dinah - by improper geographical-location proximity - was an addict to explore forbidden places, and became both a sexual predator and sexual offender:
Genesis 34:1 Now Dinah the daughter of Leah, whom she had borne to Jacob, went out to visit the women of the land....
[ Second John 1:9 Any one who goes ahead (into a Canaanite-like strip joint, internet-porn website, or drunken-brawler gang of molester bullyboys) and does not stay in the doctrine of Christ does not have God; he who stays in the doctrine has both the Father and the Son.
10 If any one comes to you [as a pagan-Canaanite-equivalent] and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into the house or give him any greeting;
11 for he who greets him shares his wicked work. ]
Genesis 34:2 and when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, the prince of the land, saw her, he seized her and lay with her and humbled her.
4 So Shechem spoke to his father Hamor, saying, "Get me this maiden for my wife."
5 Now Jacob heard that he had defiled his daughter Dinah; but his sons were with his cattle in the field, so Jacob held his peace until they came.
6 And Hamor the father of Shechem went out to Jacob to speak with him.
7 The sons of Jacob came in from the field when they heard of it; and the men were indignant and very angry, because he had wrought folly in Israel by lying with Jacob's daughter, for such a thing ought not to be done.
8 But Hamor spoke with them, saying, "The soul of my son Shechem longs for your daughter; I beg you, give her to him in marriage.
9 Make marriages with us; give your daughters to us, and take our daughters for yourselves.
10 You shall reside with us; and the land shall be open to you; dwell and trade in it, and get property in it."
[ Second Corinthians 6:14 Do not be mismated with [seasonably-immodest, Canaanite-pagan, homogay, feminist-sexist, abortionist, atheistic, agnostic, nazi or communist, anti-scientifically evolution-mythology] disbelievers. For what partnership have righteousness and iniquity? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? ]
Genesis 34:11 Shechem also said to her father and to her brothers, "Let me find favor in your eyes, and whatever you say to me I will give.
12 Ask of me ever so much as marriage present and gift, and I will give according as you say to me; only give me the maiden to be my wife."
[ Deut 22:28 "If a man meets a virgin who is not betrothed, and seizes her and lies with her, and they are found,
29 then the man who lay with her shall give to the father of the young woman fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife, because he has violated her; he may not put her away all his days. ]
13 The sons of Jacob answered Shechem and his father Hamor deceitfully, because he had defiled their sister Dinah.
14 They said to them, "We cannot do this thing, to give our sister to one who is uncircumcised, for that would be a disgrace to us.
16 Then we will give our daughters to you, and we will take your [Canaanite-idolater pagan] daughters to ourselves, and we will reside with you and become one people.
20 So Hamor and his son Shechem came to the gate of their city and spoke to the men of their city, saying,
21 "These men are friendly with us; let them dwell in the land and trade in it, for hey, the land is large enough for them; let us take their ["crazy-superstitious-belief-in-One-True-God"] daughters in marriage, and let us give them our [Canaanite-idolater pagan] daughters.
22 Only on this condition will the men agree to dwell with us, to become one people: that every male among us be circumcised as they are circumcised.
23 Will not their cattle, their property and all their beasts be ours [Oh, the selfish military-takeover greed!]? Only let us agree with them, and they will reside with us."
25 On the third day, when they were sore, two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, Dinah's brothers, took their swords and came upon the city unawares, and killed all the males.
26 They slew Hamor and his son Shechem with the sword, and took Dinah out of Shechem's house, and went away.
27 And the sons of Jacob came upon the slain, and plundered the city, because their sister had been defiled
What is the punishment for a woman becoming a sex addict, predator, and offender?
Deuteronomy 22:20 But if the thing is true, that the tokens of virginity were not found in the young woman,
21 then they shall bring out the young woman to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her to death with stones, because she has wrought folly in Israel by playing the harlot in her father's house; so you shall purge the evil from the midst of you.
Do not many female-human sex models willingly consent (and even aggressively volunteer!) to being photographed glamour-girl partially-nude and totally-naked as non-forced porn models for their irresponsible laziness to not work hard at a decent job, greed for money, or selfish obsession to get attention.....at the mere non-coercive suggestion of pimps....and therefore become guilty of being sexually-addicted sexual predators and sex offenders?
Deuteronomy 23:17 There shall be no cult prostitute of the daughters of Israel, neither shall there be a cult prostitute of the sons of Israel.
Many of the inferior-gender do not take that to heart, and become sex addicts, sexual predators, and sex offenders:
Proverbs 5:1 My son, be attentive to my wisdom, incline your ear to my understanding;
2 that you may keep discretion, and your lips may guard knowledge.
3 For the lips of a loose woman drip honey, and her speech is smoother than oil;
4 but in the end she is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword.
5 Her feet go down to death; her steps follow the path to Sheol;
6 she does not take heed to the path of life; her ways wander, and she does not know it.
7 And now, sons, listen to me, and do not depart from the words of my mouth.
8 Keep your way far from her, and do not go near the door of her house;
9 lest you give your honor to others and your years to the merciless;
10 lest strangers take their fill of your strength, and your labors go to the house of an alien;
11 and at the end of your life you groan, when your flesh and body are consumed,
12 and you say, "How I hated discipline, and my heart despised reproof!
Proverbs 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp and the teaching a light, and the reproofs of discipline are the way of life,
24 to preserve you from the evil woman, from the smooth tongue of the adventuress.
25 Do not desire her beauty in your heart, and do not let her capture you with her eyelashes;
26 for a harlot may be hired for a loaf of bread, but an adulteress stalks a man's very life.
27 Can a man carry fire in his bosom and his clothes not be burned?
28 Or can one walk upon hot coals and his feet not be scorched?
29 So is he who goes in to his neighbor's wife; none who touches her will go unpunished.
30 Do not men despise a thief if he steals to satisfy his appetite when he is hungry?
31 And if he is caught, he will pay sevenfold; he will give all the goods of his house.
32 He who commits adultery has no sense; he who does it destroys himself.
33 Wounds and dishonor will he get, and his disgrace will not be wiped away.
Proverbs 7:4 Say to wisdom, "You are my sister," and call insight your intimate friend;
5 to preserve you from the loose woman, from the adventuress with her smooth words.
6 For at the window of my house I have looked out through my lattice,
7 and I have seen among the simple, I have perceived among the youths, a young man without sense,
8 passing along the street near her corner, taking the road to her house
9 in the twilight, in the evening, at the time of night and darkness.
10 And wow, a woman meets him, [mis-]dressed as a harlot, wily of heart.
11 She is loud and wayward, her feet do not stay at home;
12 now in the street, now in the market, and at every corner she lies in wait.
13 She seizes him and kisses him, and with impudent face she says to him:
14 "I had to offer sacrifices, and today I have paid my vows;
15 so now I have come out to meet you, to seek you eagerly, and I have found you.
16 I have decked my couch with coverings, colored spreads of Egyptian linen;
17 I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
18 Come, let us take our fill of love till morning; let us delight ourselves with love.
19 For my husband is not at home; he has gone on a long journey;
20 he took a bag of money with him; at full moon he will come home."
21 With much seductive speech she persuades him; with her smooth talk she compels him.
22 All at once he follows her, as an ox goes to the slaughter, or as a stag is caught fast
23 till an arrow pierces its entrails; as a bird rushes into a snare; he does not know that it will cost him his life.
24 And now, sons, listen to me, and be attentive to the words of my mouth.
25 Let not your heart turn aside to her ways, do not stray into her paths;
26 for many a victim has she laid low; yea, all her slain are a mighty host.
27 Her house is the way to Sheol, going down to the chambers of death.
The prophet Ezekiel describes other female-human sex addicts, sexual predators, and sex offenders:
Ezekiel 16:15 But you trusted in your beauty, and played the harlot because of your renown, and lavished your harlotries on any passer-by.
16 You took some of your garments, and made for yourself gaily decked shrines, and on them played the harlot; the like has never been, nor ever shall be.
17 You also took your fair jewels of my gold and of my silver, which I had given you, and made for yourself images of men, and with them played the harlot;
18 and you took your embroidered garments to cover them, and set my oil and my incense before them.
19 Also my bread which I gave you -- I fed you with fine flour and oil and honey -- you set before them for a pleasing aroma, says the Lord GOD.
20 And you took your sons and your daughters, whom you had borne to me, and these you sacrificed to them to be devoured. Were your harlotries so small a matter
21 that you slaughtered my children [by abortion-homicide?] and delivered them up as an offering by fire to them?
24 you built yourself a vaulted chamber [Playboy Mansion?], and made yourself a lofty place in every square [and under the heading of "Massage" and "Escorts" in the Yellow Pages and porn tabloids];
25 at the head of every street you built your lofty place and prostituted your beauty, offering yourself to any passer-by, and multiplying your harlotry.
27 Hey, therefore, I stretched out my hand against you, and diminished your allotted portion, and delivered you to the greed of your enemies, the daughters of the Philistines, who were ashamed of your lewd behavior.
30 How lovesick is your heart, says the Lord GOD, seeing you did all these things, the deeds of a brazen harlot;
31 building your vaulted chamber at the head of every street, and making your lofty place in every square. Yet you were not like a harlot, because you scorned hire.
32 Adulterous wife, who receives strangers instead of her husband!
33 Men give gifts to all harlots; but you gave your gifts to all your lovers, bribing them to come to you from every side for your harlotries.
34 So you were different from other women in your harlotries: none solicited you to play the harlot; and you gave hire, while no hire was given to you; therefore you were different.
35 "Wherefore, harlot, hear the word of the LORD:
36 Thus says the Lord GOD, Because your shame was laid bare and your nakedness uncovered in your harlotries with your lovers, and because of all your idols, and because of the blood of your children that you gave to them,
37 therefore, hey, I will gather all your lovers, with whom you took pleasure, all those you loved and all those you loathed; I will gather them against you from every side, and will uncover your nakedness to them, that they may see all your nakedness.
38 And I will judge you as women who break wedlock and shed [abortion-homicide] blood are judged, and bring upon you the blood of wrath and jealousy.
39 And I will give you into the hand of your lovers, and they shall throw down your vaulted chamber and break down your lofty places; they shall strip you of your clothes and take your fair jewels, and leave you naked and bare.
40 They shall bring up a host against you, and they shall stone you and cut you to pieces with their swords.
41 And they shall burn your houses and execute judgments upon you in the sight of many women; I will make you stop playing the harlot, and you shall also give hire no more.
42 So will I satisfy my fury on you, and my jealousy shall depart from you; I will be calm, and will no more be angry.
Ezekiel 23:2 Son of man, there were two women, the daughters of one mother;
3 they played the harlot in Egypt; they played the harlot in their youth; there their breasts were pressed and their virgin bosoms handled.
7 She bestowed her harlotries upon them, the choicest men of Assyria all of them; and she defiled herself with all the idols of every one on whom she doted.
8 She did not give up her harlotry which she had practiced since her days in Egypt; for in her youth men had lain with her and handled her virgin bosom and poured out their lust upon her.
9 Therefore I delivered her into the hands of her lovers, into the hands of the Assyrians, upon whom she doted.
10 These uncovered her nakedness; they seized her sons and her daughters; and her they slew with the sword; and she became a byword among women, when judgment had been executed upon her.
11 Her sister Oholibah saw this, yet she was more corrupt than she in her doting and in her harlotry, which was worse than that of her sister.
17 And the Babylonians came to her into the bed of love, and they defiled her with their lust; and after she was polluted by them, she turned from them in disgust.
18 When she carried on her harlotry so openly and flaunted her nakedness, I turned in disgust from her, as I had turned from her sister.
19 Yet she increased her harlotry, remembering the days of her youth, when she played the harlot in the land of Egypt
20 and doted upon her paramours there, whose members were like those of asses, and whose issue was like that of horses.
21 Thus you longed for the lewdness of your youth, when the Egyptians handled your bosom and pressed your young breasts.
22 Therefore, Oholibah, thus says the Lord GOD: "Hey, I will rouse against you your lovers from whom you turned in disgust, and I will bring them against you from every side:
25 And I will direct my indignation against you, that they may deal with you in fury. They shall cut off your nose and your ears, and your survivors shall fall by the sword. They shall seize your sons and your daughters, and your survivors shall be devoured by fire."
So, do us guys wonder how the female sex-addict, sexual-predators, and sex-offender friends and masseuses and escorts we have kissed and massaged the nude bodies of are now doing? Where are they now, and what is their present marital status...being that we became one body (or flesh) with them....worse than when a Christian capitalist shakes hands with an atheistic communist, or a Christian capitalist pats the atheistic communist on the back in friendly-gesture greeting?
First Corinthians 6:9 Know you not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor the effeminate/homogay [Gr. malakoi], nor sodomites [Gr. arsenokoitai] [and those of the HRC, GLAAD, etc. are samples],
10 nor thieves [raiding the Social Security Trust Fund for illegal-aliens and voters-bribing pork projects], nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers [Maher and Stewart, Olbermann and Rachel Maddow, among many others, come to mind], nor extortioners shall inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And such were some of you. But you are washed, you are sanctified, you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God. [Redemptive atonement is possible?!]
12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any [so, no addictions to anything!].
13 Food is for the the belly, and the belly for food," but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.
14 And God has both raised up the Lord and will also raise up us by His own power.
15 Know you not that your bodies are the members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them the members of a harlot? God forbid!
16 What? Know you not that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? "For two," said He, "shall be one flesh.
17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit with Him.
18 Flee fornication. Every other sin which a man doeth is outside the body, but he that commits fornication sins against his own body.
19 What? Know you not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you and which ye have from God, and that ye are not your own [in spite of: "Keep Your laws on and not off "my" body," -- but which body actually belongs to Creator Christ!]?
20 For you are bought with a price [pricey then spendy sex slave for God]. Therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's.
How do weaker-gender sex addicts, predators, and offenders abuse and assault non-soliciting male-human victims? Especially during seasonably warm days? Is it not ignoring, disregarding, and disobeying the modest-dress-code inferences plainly revealed in the following Scripture passages?
Numbers 5:18 (RSV and NASV) And the priest shall set the woman before the LORD, and unbind the hair of the woman's head, and place in her hands the cereal offering of remembrance, which is the cereal offering of jealousy. And in his hand the priest shall have the water of bitterness that brings the curse.
Second Samuel 13:14 (RSV and NASV) But he would not listen to her; and being stronger than she, he forced her, and lay with her.
15 Then Amnon hated her with very great hatred; so that the hatred with which he hated her was greater than the love with which he had loved her. And Amnon said to her, "Get up, and get out."
16 But she said to him, "No, my brother; for this wrong in sending me away is greater than the other which you did to me." But he would not listen to her.
17 He called the young man who served him and said, "Put this woman out of my presence, and bolt the door after her."
18 Now she was wearing a FULL-length robe with LONG sleeves [and NO mention whatsoever of it having: "diverse colors"!]; for thus were the virgin daughters of the king traditionally attired. So his servant put her out, and bolted the door after her.
Isaiah 47:1 Come down and sit in the dust, virgin daughter of Babylon; sit on the ground without a throne, daughter of the Chaldeans, for you shall no more be called tender and delicate.
2 Take the millstones and grind meal, put off your veil, strip off your robe, uncover your legs [with shorts or shortened/slitted skirt], pass through the rivers [without frogman-diving-suit swimwear].
3 Your nakedness shall be uncovered, and your shame shall be seen. I will take vengeance [molesting retaliatory "abuse," assault, or rape?], and I will spare no man.
4 Our Redeemer--the LORD of hosts is his name--is the Holy One of Israel.
[ NOTE: "Redeemer?" Ah, there is hope for atonement, through the Holy One of Israel! ]
Jeremiah 2:25 Keep your feet from going unshod [nothing said about wearing out shoe soles!] and your throat from thirst. But you said, 'It is hopeless, for I have loved strangers, and after them I will go.'
First Corinthians 11:14 Does not nature itself teach you that for a man to wear long hair is degrading to him,
15 but if a woman has long hair, it is her pride? For her hair is given to her for a covering.
16 If any one is inclined to be contentious, we recognize no such practice [of allowing a woman to consider her loose long hair as adequate as a public prayer veil or covering], nor do the churches of God.
How do women keep from becoming sex addicts, predators, and sex offenders?
(1) By being dressed modesty when in general mixed-gender public view:
First Timothy 2:5 For there is one God (and He ain't "allah!"], and there is ONE mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus [NOT Mohammed nor Joseph Smith nor any cultic-catholic priest nor Buddha and especially not B. Hussein Obama!],
6 who gave himself as a ransom for all, the testimony to which was borne at the proper time.
7 For this I was appointed a preacher and apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
8 I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling;
9 also that women should adorn themselves modestly and sensibly in decent apparel, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly attire
10 but by good works, as befits women who profess religion.
11 Let a woman learn in silence with all submissiveness.
12 I allow no woman [within or outside of the church, whether in politics, government, schools, law enforcement and the judiciary, banking, corporate leadership, etc.] to teach or to have authority over men; she is to keep silent.
13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve [the initiates of politics, government, schools, church, law enforcement, the judiciary, banking, corporate leadership, etc.];
14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor [so don't put them in charge of National Security!].
15 Yet woman will be saved through bearing children [rather than committing and not performing abortion-homicide], if she continues in faith and love and holiness, with sobriety.
(2) By getting and staying married by age 20 or thereabouts:
Leviticus 27:2 "Say to the people of Israel, When a man makes a special vow of persons to the LORD at your valuation,
3 then your valuation of a male from twenty years old up to sixty years old shall be fifty shekels of silver, according to the shekel of the sanctuary.
4 If the person is a female, your valuation shall be thirty shekels.
5 If the person is from five years old up to twenty years old, your valuation shall be for a male twenty shekels, and for a female ten shekels.
First Timothy 5:14 So I would have younger women [Gr. ne(o)teras, NOT ch(e)ras] (NOT "widows") marry, bear children, manage their households, and give the enemy no cause to revile us.
15 For some have already strayed after Satan.
