Many diverse manifestations of the deviant immentality of Satan's primal lie to naked Eve in the Garden of Eden have occurred, now occur, and will re-occur in the future. They are legion.
One characteristic of the Devils deceptive dishonesty is to communicate misrepresentative, overbroad, half-lie presumptions:
(01)"You will not die."
(02)"Everybody's doing it."
(03)"People will automatically know what is right without reading the Bible and without written laws."
(04)"That evil I saw might have changed for the better by now."
(05)"I can stop before going all the way."
(06)"A little bit of investigation into previously-experienced wickedness will not mean totally getting into it again."
(07)"Just one more drink."
(08)"What and who will it hurt if I do it?"
(09)"The porn I saw might not be there anyone."
(10)"I have to sneak a peek to see how bad it really is now."
(11)"I cannot be popular with my friends if I don't do a little worldly sinning."
(12)"Mainline churches have accepted feminists and homogays as acceptable and forgiven Christians."
(13)"Evolution has been proven over and over, and both fossils and radioactive dating show it's a scientific fact."
(14)"Abortion is a personal medical choice of a woman's right for healthy reproductive freedom."
(15)"All the manuscripts of Scripture do not agree, so you cannot trust any of them."
(16)"All the Bible translations have different wording inferring different meanings, and who says which is correct?"
(17)"Older manuscripts are more reliable than recently-discovered ones."
(18)"Most theological authorities accept traditional commentary explanations for Bible study."
(19)"God is unconditional love, not insensitive hate."
(20)"Guys enjoy seeing gals who are publicly dressed sexy on warm days to get tan, stop sweating, and avoid heatstroke."
(21)"Parts of the Bible were written for an ancient people far away, long ago, and no longer apply."
(22)"We are under grace, not pharisaic law."
(23)"Spanking or slapping children is child abuse."
(24)"Earth is getting critically overpopulated and polluted by fossil fuels causing global warming."
(25)"Old people don't need to be dependent upon Social Security and Medicare; they should learn to invest instead."
(26)"Women are equal to men, have gentler different perspectives, and should receive equal pay for equal work."
(27)"Humans should relocate so that whales and polar bears, liable to become extinct, survive."
(28)"Men need to make way and compensate for battered women."
(29)"Separation of church and state is the law; imposing public-nuisance disturbing-the-peace proselitizing is unlawful."
(30)"To condemn anyone for any legally-protected thing they do in this land of freedom and liberty is a hate crime."
(31)"Scholars disagree on the interpretation of Biblical words."
(32)"There are so many cults who think they are right and everyone else is wrong."
(33)"Harshly applying legalistic out-of-context Scripture verses in cruel intolerance is illegal discrimination."
(34)"Everyone has their own opinion, and no one's is any better than anyone else's."
(35)"What atheists say and peaceful buddhists chant is partly true and psychologically healing."
(36)"Churches are full of mean-spirited nitpicky hypocrites anyway."
(37)"God made people naked in the first place, so why feel guilty and ashamed of displaying the nude human body?"
The above half-lie (not half-"truth") irrationalization and doctrines of demons have been aptly commented upon by wise old Solomon:
Ecclesiastes 7:29 Hey, this alone I found, that God made humans upright, but they have sought out many devices.
It has been said that there is nothing humankind has assembled and operates from God-given resources that cannot be undone.
The most secure locked safes in the world can be unlocked. Maximum-security jails can be broken out of and escaped from. Access-allowing keys can be lost to prevent further access. A specifically-lettered-and-specifically-sequenced BIOS passcode preventing unauthorized access to a computer can be deleted. Vehicles do not stop for red stoplights in funeral-procession caravans headed for the cemetery. Beautiful homes and skyscrapers can be torn down, and other structures rebuilt in their place. Paper money can be burnt out of existence. Marked and engraved coins can be melted down into a puddle of non-identity. Graves can be opened. Married husbands and wives can be divorced. Secured treasures can be pilfered and confiscated. Functioning human bodies can be injured by accident and handicapped by poison.
Anything that humans do can be undone...in contrast to everything which God the Creator has done cannot be altered:
(a) Who can stop the Sun from shining?
(b) Who can stop gravity from working?
(c) Who can prevent light from normally traveling 186,000 mps?
(d) Who can alter the orbit of the nearest star 4 light-years distant?
(e) Who can prevent trees and grass all over Earth from blossoming each spring?
(f) Who can prevent leaves dying and falling down in autumn?
(g) Who can prevent a godly, holy and pure, heterosexual non-homo-effeminate/non-homo-sodomite, rainbow from appearing in a receding rainstorm cloud?
(h) Who can prevent a godly, holy and pure, heterosexual non-homogay/non-homo-transvestite rainbow from appearing in a prism struck by sunlight?
The prophet Elihu, dissertating in the Old-Testament book of Job (pronounced: Johb) gave these examples:
Job 36:22 Hey, God is exalted in His power; who is a teacher like Him?
23 Who has prescribed for Him His way, or who can say, 'You have done wrong'?
24 Remember to extol His work, of which men have sung.
25 All men have looked on it; man ponders it from afar.
26 Hey, God is great, and we know Him not; the number of His years is unsearchable.
27 For He draws up the drops of water, He distils His mist in rain
28 which the skies pour down, and drop upon man abundantly.
29 Can any one understand the spreading of the clouds, the thunderings of His pavilion?
30 Hey, He scatters His lightning about Him, and covers the roots of the sea.
31 For by these He judges peoples; He gives food in abundance.
32 He covers His hands with the lightning, and commands it to strike the mark.
33 Its crashing declares concerning Him, who is jealous with anger against iniquity.
Job 37:1 At this also my heart trembles, and leaps out of its place.
2 Respond to the thunder of His voice and the rumbling that comes from His mouth.
3 Under the whole heaven He lets it go, and His lightning to the corners of the earth.
4 After it His voice roars; He thunders with His majestic voice and He does not restrain the lightnings when His voice is heard.
5 God thunders wondrously with His voice; He does great things which we cannot comprehend.
6 For to the snow He says, 'Fall on the earth'; and to the shower and the rain, 'Be strong.'
7 He seals up the hand of every man, that all men may know His work.
8 Then the beasts go into their lairs, and remain in their dens.
9 From its chamber comes the whirlwind, and cold from the scattering winds.
10 By the breath of God ice is given, and the broad waters are frozen fast.
11 He loads the thick cloud with moisture; the clouds scatter His lightning.
12 They turn round and round by His guidance, to accomplish all that He commands them on the face of the habitable world.
13 Whether for correction, or for His land, or for love, He causes it to happen.
14 Hear this, Job; stop and consider the wondrous works of God.
15 Do you know how God lays His command upon them, and causes the lightning of His cloud to shine?
16 Do you know the balancings of the clouds, the wondrous works of Him who is perfect in knowledge,
17 you whose garments are hot when the earth is still because of the south wind?
18 Can you, like Him, spread out the skies, hard as a molten mirror?
19 Teach us what we shall say to Him; we cannot draw up our case because of darkness.
20 Shall it be told Him that I would speak? Did a man ever wish that he would be swallowed up?
21 And now men cannot look on the light when it is bright in the skies, when the wind has passed and cleared them.
22 Out of the north comes golden splendor; God is clothed with terrifying majesty.
23 The Almighty: we cannot find Him; He is great in power and justice, and abundant righteousness He will not violate.
24 Therefore men fear Him; He does not regard any who are wise in their own conceit.
It behooves humanity to accomodatingly adjust themselves to what and how the Creator has immutably created, terrestially and celestially.
How they are supposed to get vital know-how and knowledge to (in full trustworthy confidence) do that, does not reliably come from differing human opinions nor a confusing plethoria of diversely fickle conjecture, superstition, prejudice, nor random presuppositions....but rather from the entire contents of the canonical Sacred-66-books Judeo-Christian (Old-&-New-Testaments) Holy Bible -- consisting of the inerrant ben Asher Masoretic Hebrew Old-Testament Text AND the equally-infallible Scrivener/Trinitarian Greek New-Testament Text (transliterated and translated into the best of the KJV, Wesley, RSV, NASV, NRSV and other English versions, for English-speaking people).
Such Divinely-inspired written-and-perfectly-preserved absolutes etched and engraved into written alphabet letters comprising commonly-defined-and-universally-understood words and phrases and sentences cannot be overruled nor abrogated by deviously-infidel apostates and heretics, but remains untouchable and out of their destructive reach:
Luke 20:17 And He looked at them and said, What then is this which is written, "The Stone which the builders rejected, the same has become the Head of the corner?
Luke 28:18 Whoever shall fall on that Stone shall be broken, but on whomever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder."
Romans 9:33 as it is written, "Hey, I am laying in Zion a Stone that will make men stumble, a Rock that will make them fall; and he who believes in Him will not be put to shame."
First Peter 2:6 For it stands in scripture: "Hey, I am laying in Zion [listen up, so-called "palestinians"!] a Stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious, and he who believes in Him will not be put to shame."
First Peter 2:7 To you therefore who believe, He is precious, but for those who do not believe, "The very Stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner,"
First Peter 2:8 and "A Stone that will make men stumble, a Rock that will make them fall"; for they stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do.
There are many demented, weirdo, psychiatrically sick and mentally-ill sinful subversives who have tried to maliciously question, ignore, disregard, contradict, ridicule, twist, and blaspheme the precise and exact Word of God (typically regarded as the words contained within aforementioned copies of The Holy Bible in various languages and renditions):
Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all non-godliness and wickedness of humans who by their wickedness suppress the truth.
19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them.
20 Ever since the creation of the world His invisible nature, namely, His eternal power and deity, has been clearly perceived in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse;
21 for although they knew God they did not honor Him as God or give thanks to Him, but they became futile in their thinking and their senseless minds were darkened.
22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools,
23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man or birds or animals or reptiles.
24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves,
25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural,
27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error [like AIDS].
28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a base mind and to improper conduct.
29 They were filled with all manner of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malignity, they are gossips,
30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents,
31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless.
32 Though they know God's decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.
Second Timothy 3:5 ....holding the form of religion but denying the power of it. Avoid such people.
Second Timothy 3:6 For among them are those who make their way into households and capture weak women [sucking up every tidbit of warped cable-TV chitter-chatter crap they can], burdened with sins and swayed by various impulses,
Second Timothy 3:7 who will listen to anybody and can never arrive at a knowledge of the truth.
Second Timothy 3:8 As Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these humans also oppose the truth, humans of corrupt mind and counterfeit faith;
Second Timothy 3:9 but they will not get very far, for their folly will be plain to all, as was that of those two men.
Ephesians 5:7 Therefore do not associate with them...
First Corinthians 15:33 Do not be deceived, evil companionships corrupt good habits.
The homofaggots in now six "Marriage-Equality-Act" States, who defiantly and belligerantly march in local "Gay Pride" parades - exhibiting their deliberately-wayward shame and vile-filth disgusting homosexual orientation.....fool themselves into hallucinating that they have, can, and will overturn, neutralize, change, and invalidate the indestructibly etched-in-proverbial-stone admonitions and implications of:
Leviticus 20:13 If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them.
First Corinthians 6:9 Do you not know that the non-righteous [i.e. sinners] shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate [Gr. malakoi], nor sodomites [Gr. arsenokoitai],
10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And such were some of you [and what part of the word: "were" does one NOT understand?]. But you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
Romans 6:1 What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound?
2 By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it?
11 So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.
12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal bodies, to make you obey their passions.
13 Do not yield your members to sin as instruments of wickedness, but yield yourselves to God as men who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments of righteousness.
14 For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.
15 What then? Are we to sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means!
16 Do you not know that if you yield yourselves to any one as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness?
17 But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed,
18 and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness.
19 I am speaking in human terms, because of your natural limitations. For just as you once yielded your members to impurity and to greater and greater iniquity, so now yield your members to righteousness for sanctification.
20 When you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness.
21 But then what return did you get from the things of which you are now ashamed? The end of those things is death.
22 But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the return you get is sanctification and its end, eternal life.
In stark contrast to defiling and pollutive, semi-indecently-exposed, immodest (subtly or overtly flaunting warm-weather-excused loose-long-haired mopheadedness, sleevesless naked arms, slacksless nude legs, and/or bared open-toes-and-soles with soxless flipflop sandals) and insubordinately-harassive sexist feminists imposing themselves as antagonistic chauvenistic predators, repulsively-queer homogays and homosodomites, absurd evolutionists wallowing in their ridiculous anti-creationist mythology, deceitfully-lying atheists, baby-murdering abortionists and compliant mangled-female-body conspirators, Jew-hating antisemites, and more....are some brave and courageous, faithful, fundamentalist and orthodox, genuine and authentic [Christian] believers who have done, continue to do, and will continue to do....the very opposite:
Proverbs 30:5 Every word of God proves true; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.
Second Corinthians 4:2 We have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways; we refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God's word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.
Galatians 1:11 For I would have you know, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not man's gospel.
Galatians 1:12 For I did not receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through a revelation of Jesus Christ.
First Timothy 6:20 Oh Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge,
First Timothy 6:21 for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards the faith. Grace be with you.
Second Timothy 3:16 All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,
Second Timothy 3:17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
Second Peter 3:15 And think of the patience of our Lord as salvation, as our beloved brother Paul also has written to you according to the wisdom given to him
16 as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to understand, which the non-learned and unstable pervert, as also they do the other Scripture, to their own destruction.
17 Therefore, beloved, knowing beforehand, beware lest being led away with the error of the lawless, you fall from your own stability.
18 But grow in grace and in knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
You might have heard that comment from a pervert or pervertess that "God made us naked, so why should we be ashamed of our bodies?"
God indeed did make us naked, as we are born naked:
Genesis 2:25 And the man and his wife were both naked, and were not ashamed.
Job 1:21 And he said, "Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked shall I return; the LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD."
And perusing the thighs, navel, belly, loose long hair, and breasts body parts described in Song of Solomon is an integral part of commanded romantic matrimonial reproduction-related behavior:
Genesis 9:1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth."
Genesis 9:7 "And you, be fruitful and multiply, bring forth abundantly on the earth and multiply in it."
So heed the "I-Order-You-To-Have-Sex" Creator's command to copulate.....without extinction-causing homosexuality, abortion-homicide, etc.! We "only go around once."
But just as we should not be ashamed of God-sanctioned marital nudity away from private view:
Song of Solomon 2:14 Oh my dove, in the clefts of the rock, in the covert of the cliff, let me see your face, let me hear your voice, for your voice is sweet, and your face is attractive.
...so we should not be ashamed that God not only made for Adam, Eve, and progenie clothes...but also "clothed" them ["Hey, Lord, what in the duce are these strange things for?"]:
Genesis 3:21 And the LORD God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins, and clothed them.
And we ain't talking string bikinis here, nor even thong-shoes, tank tops and shorts.
IF one cannot get the police to arrest and ticket immodest females with seared consciences casually roaming around - indoctrinated by lurid TV talkshow heresies, apostate magazine and newsprint commentaries, and other lurid-libertarian brainwashing...and one cannot dangerously encounter and confront twit bitches ready to spitefully talk back with mindless sassy doctrine-of-demon retorts against righteous correction...the best one can do is to puritanically dress with the modesty prevalent in the 1800s and early 1900s so graciously portrayed by most everyone's great-great-great-great-great grandparents and equivalent, and indigenous for fundamentalist-muslim islamic, amish, and old-order Catholic nuns.
By consistently been dressed modestly as described, the decent and pure-minded make hideous blushing asses out of surrounding harlot-lookalike seducers and immodest enticers -- which will not permanently go unnoticed but instead eventually be commented upon as to why the difference and discrepancy in seasonal attire.
Concise Scriptural answers are readily available, and consequential Holy Writ quoted conveys plain inferences of decency clearly comprehended even by the dullest of idiotic morons:
Romans 15:4 For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that by continuance and by the encouragement of the scriptures we might have hope.
First Timothy 2:8 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 broided hair or gold or pearls or expensive attire
10 but by good works, as befits women who profess religion.
11 Let a woman learn in silence with all submission.
12 I allow no woman to teach or to have authority over men; she is to keep silent.
13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve;
14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.
15 Yet woman will be saved through bearing children, if she continues in faith and love and holiness, with sobriety.
The sexually-irresponsible might query as to "who is hurt" by contemporarily-modern-and-avant-garde NON-old-fashioned public immodestly in general public view within our closely-interdependent society.
First Corinthians 12:14 For the body does not consist of one member but of many.
15 If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body," that would not make it any less a part of the body.
16 And if the ear should say, "Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body," that would not make it any less a part of the body.
17 If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole body were an ear, where would be the sense of smell?
18 But as it is, God arranged the organs in the body, each one of them, as He chose.
19 If all were a single organ, where would the body be?
20 As it is, there are many parts, yet one body.
21 The eye cannot say to the hand, "I have no need of you," nor again the head to the feet, "I have no need of you."
22 On the contrary, the parts of the body which seem to be weaker are indispensable,
23 and those parts of the body which we think less honorable we invest with the greater honor, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty,
24 which our more presentable parts do not require. But God has so composed the body, giving the greater honor to the inferior part,
25 that there may be no discord in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another.
26 If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.
Does a "little bit" (however that is determined or mis-determined) of trancient and anonymous female-human immodesty really and seriously hurt men who are non-reasonably supposed to exercise inordinate and excessive amounts of possibly-harmful-to-their-safety self-control? Aren't a-hundred-or-so-bucks-a-session masseuses and escorts available for the sensually desperate? Are men supposed to become blind so as to not see lust-incited mopheaded, nude-armed, naked-legged, and barefooted lifesized porn-in-motion?
Leviticus 19:14 You shall not curse the deaf or put a stumbling block before the blind, but you shall fear your God: I am the LORD.
Proverbs 17:14 The beginning of [immodest-competition-and-confrontation] strife is like letting out water; so quit before the quarrel breaks out.
Isaiah 42:19 Who is blind but my [avoiding-the-sights-of-immodest-females] servant, or deaf as my [exiting away from non-asked-for titillating female-voice sounds] messenger whom I send? Who is [non-rudely and understandably] blind as my dedicated one, or [non-impolitely and thankfully] blind as the servant of the LORD?
Ezekiel 14:3 "Son of man, these [semi-immodest women] have taken their [lewd warm-weather fashion-and-style] idols into their hearts, and set the stumbling block of their [body-parts-baring] iniquity before [the faces of hapless non-soliciting male victims]; should I let myself be inquired of at all by them?"
Matthew 23:4 [Frigid-yet-immodest, self-righteously-critical, quasi-prudish women who hypocritically condemn men for supposedly having "dirty gutter minds"] bind heavy ["If you don't like it, turn away and don't look at me"] burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with their finger [by going home and re-dressing with chignon or single back-of-head ponytail, long sleeves, full-length skirt or roomy slacks, and socks under sandals].
Romans 14:13 Then let us no more pass judgment on one another, but rather decide never to put a [so-called "sexy" quasi-indecent fashion or style] stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a [red-blooded sensitive-to-visual-erotic-stimulation] brother.
First Corinthians 8:9 Only take care lest this [be dressed however you like, whenever, with whatever, in this free country] liberty of yours somehow become a stumbling block to the weak.
Ephesians 4:22 Put off [strip!] your old nature which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful lusts,
Titus 1:15 To the pure all things are pure, but to the corrupt and disbelieving nothing is pure; their very minds and consciences are corrupted.
Deuteronomy 25:11 When men fight with one another, and the wife of the one draws near to rescue her husband from the hand of him who is beating him, and puts out her hand and seizes him by the private parts,
Deuteronomy 25:12 then you shall cut off her hand; your eye shall have no pity.
Song of Solomon 2:3 As an apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among young men. With great delight I sat in his shadow, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.
Song of Solomon 5:1 I come to my garden, my sister, my bride, I gather my myrrh with my spice, I eat my honeycomb with my honey, I drink my wine with my milk. Eat, friends, and drink: drink deeply, lovers!
Isaiah 66:11 ....that you may suck and be satisfied with her consoling breasts; that you may drink deeply with delight from the abundance of her glory.
