Sadly, there are a number of people, even lamentably some religious ones, who presume that human-sexuality erotica is [quote] "dirty" [unquote]. They ridicule, condemn, and revile those who seek, find, and enjoy God-given, Christ-created sensuality with malicious and insidious accusations of the sensuously-speaking: [quote] "having their minds in the gutter" [unquote].
Actually, the 'Judge not, lest you be judged' effect applies: such antagonists have their minds in the proverbial gutter!
Psalm 101:5 He who slanders his neighbor secretly I will destroy. The man of haughty looks and arrogant heart I will not endure.
Galatians 2:4 But because of false brethren secretly brought in, who slipped in to spy out our [sexual] freedom which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into [prudish abstinence] bondage --
Galatians 2:5 to them we did not yield submission even for a moment, that the truth of the gospel might be preserved for you.
Concerning such perverse prudes, Scripture reminds us all that:
Genesis 2:25 ....the man and his wife were both naked, and were not ashamed. [And such a statement should give holy persons sacred God-inspired ideas for sensually proceeding not merely for reproduction, but proceeding unabashedly while imaginatively and thoroughly enjoying such sexuality -- without any apprehension or guilt].
Proverbs 5:15 Drink waters out of your own cistern, and running waters out of your own well.
Proverbs 5:16 Should your overflowing spring he scattered abroad as rivers of waters in the streets.
Proverbs 5:17 Let them be only your own, and not strangers with you.
Proverbs 5:18 Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice with the wife of your youth.
Proverbs 5:19 Like the loving deer and pleasant doe, let her breasts satisfy you at all times, and be ravished always with her love.
Song of Solomon 4:16 Awake, north wind, and come, south wind! Blow upon my garden, let its fragrance be wafted abroad. Let my beloved come to his garden, and eat its choicest fruits.
Song of Solomon 5:2 I slept, but my heart was awake. Whoa! my beloved is knocking. "Open to me, my sister, my love,
my dove, my perfect one; for my head is wet with dew, my locks with the drops of the night."
Song of Solomon 7:6 How fair and pleasant you are [NOT some non-married-to-viewers-at-large porn model on the internet, in a girlie magazine, on cable TV, or passing by mopheaded or sleevesless or slacksless or soxless during seasonably warm weather], loved one, delectable maiden!
Song of Solomon 7:7 You are stately as a palm tree, and your breasts [not the boobs of some young and lewd foxy broad] are like its clusters.
Song of Solomon 7:8 I say I will climb the palm tree and lay hold of its branches. Oh, may your breasts be like clusters of the vine, and the scent of your breath like apples,
Song of Solomon 7:9 and your kisses like the best wine that goes down smoothly, gliding over lips and teeth of sleepers.
Song of Solomon 7:10 I am my beloved's, and his desire is for me [NOT for streetwalkers, hookers, vice-coppette decoys, incall or outcall exchange-massage masseuses or escorts, one-night-stand dates, etc.].
Song of Solomon 7:11 Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the fields, and lodge in the villages [sounds like a honeymoon hideaway of newlyweds....instead of blatant in-your-face indecent-exposure warm-weather exhibitionism in front of secretly-ejaculating men-at-large gawking lustfully at a partial-or-high-heeled-nude dance-bar stripper];
Song of Solomon 7:12 let us go out early to the vineyards, and see whether the vines have budded, whether the grape blossoms have opened and the pomegranates are in bloom. There I will give you my love.
Song of Solomon 7:13 The mandrakes give forth fragrance, and over our doors are all choice fruits, new as well as old, which I have laid up for you, my beloved.
[So, WHO - again - has the "dirty mind?"]
Romans 14:13 Then let us no more pass judgment on one another, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother.
Romans 14:14 I know and am persuaded in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself; but it is unclean for any one who thinks it unclean. [that is, "unclean" to the pervert, but not to God nor those with the mind of Christ]
Romans 14:15 If your brother is being injured [by being sexually assaulted, molested, harassed, and abused....visually] by what you eat [or miswear -- especially during seasonably warm weather or for mixed-gender-view sports], you are no longer walking in love. Do not let what you eat [or miswear] cause the ruin of one for whom Christ died.
Romans 14:16 So do not let your good [body] be spoken of as evil [by mis-attiring it].
First Timothy 4:1 But the Spirit expressly says that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to [sex-is-dirty-and-sinful] seducing spirits and teachings of [abstinence-only] demons,
First Timothy 4:2 speaking ["mommy-is-boss guys like to see babbling mopheaded female chatterboxes jawing the news on cable TV"] lies in hypocrisy, being seared in their own [sexually-perverted and guttermind] conscience,
First Timothy 4:3 forbidding to marry [and instead advocating abortion-homicide-murder-based sexual promiscuity instead of being "tied down" to marital "slavery" and "boredom"], saying to abstain from foods [and which cultic religionists do THAT?] which God has created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.
First Timothy 4:4 For every creation of God is good [private parts and viewing such included], and nothing [including private pre-coital marital fellatio] to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving.
First Timothy 4:5 For it is sanctified through the Word of God and prayer.
Titus 1:15 To the pure all things are pure. But to those who are defiled and disbelieving nothing is pure, but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
As previously stated, there are a number of perverted prudes, even lamentably some religious ones, who presume that human-sexuality erotica is [quote] "dirty" [unquote]. They ridicule, condemn, revile and blaspheme those who seek, find, and enjoy God-given sensuality as [quote] "having their minds in the gutter" [unquote].
How should genuine Christian confront or react against such filthy-minded wicked who....by their derision against God-given human nudity, Christ-created human nakedness and clothes-free sexual-responses associates therewith....are in effect sticking their own dirty third finger up to Jesus and in essence thumbing their snotty nose against Him.
Proverbs 14:7 Leave the presence of a fool, for there you do not meet words of knowledge.
Proverbs 20:19 He who goes about gossiping reveals secrets; therefore do not associate with one who speaks foolishly.
Matthew 15:14 Let them alone; they are blind guides. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.
Second Corinthians 6:17 Therefore come out from them, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch nothing unclean; then I will welcome you....
Frequently, those who prudishly presume that sex is sinful and dirty guttertalk and demand complete abstinence are secretly sensual hypocrites themselves who covertly wallow in licentuousness and sexual immorality in secret seclusion:
Ephesians 5:5 For you know this, that no fornicator, or unclean person, or covetous one who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
Ephesians 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the children of disobedience.
Ephesians 5:7 Therefore do not be partakers with them.
Ephesians 5:8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of light
Ephesians 5:9 for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth,
Ephesians 5:10 proving what is acceptable to the Lord.
Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
Ephesians 5:12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret.
Ephesians 5:13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light, for whatever [electromagnetic energy which] makes manifest is [photonic] light.
Second Timothy 3:1 Know this also, that in the last days grievous times will be on us.
Second Timothy 3:2 For men will be self-lovers, money-lovers, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
Second Timothy 3:3 without natural affection, unyielding, false accusers, without self-control, savage, despisers of good,
Second Timothy 3:4 traitors, reckless, puffed up, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
Second Timothy 3:5 having a form of godliness, but denying the power of it; even turn away from these.
Second Timothy 3:6 For of these are those who creep into houses and lead captive silly women loaded with sins, led away with different kinds of lusts,
Second Timothy 3:7 ever learning and never able to come to the full knowledge of the truth.
Second Timothy 3:8 But as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so these also resist the truth, men of corrupt mind, reprobate concerning the faith.
Second Timothy 3:9 But they shall proceed no further. For their foolishness shall be plain to all, as theirs also became.
After a hard day's work, we like to settle down in front of the cable TV, switch it on with our handy-dandy remote control unit (which we would never EVER watch instantaneously-video-scenes-switching porno-terrorism-TV-programming without!), and turn on FOX or CNN to see "the" "news" and the dangerous imposition of piggybacked commercials rife and reeking with eye-catching porno-lunacy, incessantly interspersed within and noxiously interrupting main programming.
If our eyes are promptly attacked by some indecently-hairstyled female anchoress or reporteress arrogantly or seductively blattering away, we (already visually-defiled and thus-somewhat-incurably wounded) immediately switch to C-Span 1 or 2 or 3, or the History channel, or try to find a good hit-man movie...rather than fleeing to some privy location to quasi-relieve ourselves in the shameful pseudo-self-fulfillment of jacking off to flashdrive-saved pics and vids of birthday-suited cutie nudies (and so we sympathize with Old-Testament patriarchs who acquired and maintained their bevys of wives and concubines in expensive harems).
Much consternation has been and continues to be expressed against pornography in print and on screen, whether in magazines, tabloids, newspapers, on TV, and over the internet.
At the same time, production and perusal of porn is a billion-dollar industry for sexually-hungry and erotically-aroused men seeking safe and controllable sensual satisfaction with regulatible images of compliant and voluntarily-denuded girls and women posing for such in their desire for sundry pseudo-benefits. Taking reclusive haven in covert pleasures of gazing at and lusting over totally-bared beauties is conveniently devoid of moody feminist-sexist insubordination, headache-declaring noncooperativeness, menstrual uncleanness, inflicted venereal disease, and financially-depletionary chance of surprise pregnancy accompanied by the embarrassingly prospect of reputational blackmail.
However, not enough negativism has been nor is conveyed against the actual, live-person female humans lasciviously baring themselves for all types and severities of licentuous-imagery porn, such as mopheads polluting high-school yearbooks with indecently-hairstyled photos.
We are all aware of gross forms of illegal indecently-exposed girls and women (infants excepted) ignorantly or deliberately baring or having bared breast(s), buttock(s) and/or crotch to the non-soliciting mixed-gender public. Now-and-then news reports of such lewd conduct in general public view sometimes contain references to consequential law-enforced punishment of arrest and fines against such so-called "daring," temporarily-insane flashers and streakers (though imprisonment is a rarity, and such antisocial public obnoxiousness is almost never eliminated by execution, except on occasion in Middle-Eastern islamic countries).
Even the wearing of thong and string bikinis during summertime on public beaches is sometimes prohibited by law in many places and locations throughout America (with the exception of within nudist and naturist parks, camps, and colonies).
However, less flagrant types of lewd-conduct exhibitionism (under warm-weather or sporting conditions and mandatory-styles circumstances) are sometimes frowned upon and criticized with derisive scorn...even during spring or summer or autumn outdoors (as, for example, wearing way-too-short shorts, nipples-baring low-cut unbuttoned blouses, droopy or pushed-down slacks showing the upper crevice of the buttocks, etc.).
For ultra-fundamentalist Christians, though, even naked arms exposed by sleevesless blouses (see the fashion implications of RSV's and NASV's Second Samuel 13:18), nude legs exposed by shortened skirts or knee-length shorts (see the fashion inferences of RSV's and NASV's Isaiah 47:1-4), and/or baring parts of feet (such as toes and soles) exposed by sockslessness with or without sandals or flip-flops (see the prohibition commanded in RSV's and NASV's Jeremiah 2:25).....are intolerably obscene and repulsively-lurid immodesty!
Especially during cold winter months, worldly and pseudo-spiritual/falsely-"christian" gals (particularly toddlers, teens, and younger women as contrasted with elderly senior citizens) ignorantly, carelessly, selfishly, mindlessly, and/or deliberately sometimes "let their hair down" to silently and subtly flaunt as devilishly-demonic fake "angels" or rebelliously fling around longer-than-mouth-level LOOSE long hair not tied up in a chignon (pug or bun) nor tied in a single back-of-head ponytail....for whatever satanic-glamour doctrines-of-demons irrationalizing excuses). Preening the hair for whatever conscience-striken purpose with the hands into a temporary ponytail to then let it fall down loose again is no substitute for actually tying it with a binder into a back-of-head ponytail.
There are numerous pertinent Scripture verses to describe, condemn and counteract such abnormal and errant sexually-harassing indecency.....such as RSV's and NASV's Numbers 5:18 (relating loosening long hair with suspicion of adultery having been committed), RSV's and NASV's Song of Solomon 7:5 (indicating that such erotic mopheadedness is reserved exclusively for one's own spouse only when alone in private with him), and KJV's/KJ21's/MKJV's/NKJV's First Corinthians 11:14-16 (inferring that it is not the custom of the churches of God to regard loose long hair on a woman as equivalent or sufficient as a prayer-shawl covering nor veil).
Lamentably, the KJV-type Bible translations -- which are generally more accurate (in accord with the inerrant Scrivener/Trinitarian Greek New-Testament Text) than many other modern translations -- are hideously deficient and lacking concerning correct wording congruent with the ben Asher Masoretic Hebrew Text of the Old Testament (edited by Rudolf Kittel with his Biblia Hebraica rendition) pertaining to such vital verses as Numbers 5:18, Second Samuel 13:18, and Song of Solomon 7:5.
Fortunately, comparison with the RSV and NASV reveals such deplorable heretical and non-insignificant discrepancies and corrrects them with true-wording semantics, thus enlightening honest and genuiine Christians as to the real will of God regarding what the Lord in fact considers mandatory modesty against the filthy-immentality, nitpickiness-habitualized, legalism-perpetuated, gutter-mind-obsessive defilement caused by shameful, needless, and senseless general-public-view female-human mopheadedness.
One can be reasonably assured that when viewing non-audience scenes of church mass services in progress on EWTN that one will probably not be visually assaulted with female immodesty...in stark contrast to the immodest puke one most likely would encounter on most other cable channels...but EWTN is usually boring, especially with the overdose of eucharist ritualism, characteristic of much of their programming.
As a last resort, I mute the sound, turn to MSNBC, and relax watching the clown-faced facial antics of short-haired showhost Rachel Maddow. Knowing that the stench of anti-GOP ranting (like putrid diarrhea) is probably emanating from that moving hole under her nose, I am content to merely savor her short-haired modesty -- a refreshing change from the porno-mopheaded chatty-cathys promoted by Sean Hannity, Oreilly, and so on.
Don't get me wrong; I have heard rumors that quite-attractive and intelligently-entertaining brown-eyed-brunette Rachel is a proud lesbian -- the latter defect of which, of course, is thoroughly obnoxious and disgusting (to say the least). With that in mind, I certainly do NOT want to give the false impression that I am puffing a heretically-homosexual pervert:
Proverbs 26:8 Like one who binds the stone in the sling is he who gives honor to a fool.
However, compared to the rancid and despicable appreciation-of-erotica-destroying porno-mopheaded-females visual filth on most of the other news and entertainment cable channels, Rachel is a commendable breath of pure-and-holy-looking fresh air:
Luke 16:8 The master commended the dishonest steward for his shrewdness; for the sons of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own generation than the sons of light.
Admittedly, Rachel Maddow (not Madcow) is not the only female fish in the sea. Yours truly generally likes to be around the following, in descending order:
It is understandable that women (especially younger ones), of whom some man is going to be or already is sexually involved, wear a chignon (pug or bun) or at least a single back-of-head ponytail.....to indicate that they are either searching for heterosexual erotic fulfilment with some eligible man for marriage, or are in the process of either acquiring such or operational active at the present time with some husband....whereas those who have no driving need nor interest in heterosexual endeavors indicate their non-availability by having their hair cut short or in a "permanent:"
Numbers 5:12 (RSV or NASV) Say to the people of Israel, "If any man's wife goes astray and acts unfaithfully against him,
Numbers 5:13 if a man lies with her carnally, and it is hidden from the eyes of her husband, and she is undetected though she has defiled herself, and there is no witness against her, since she was not taken in the act;
Numbers 5:14 and if the spirit of jealousy comes upon him, and he is jealous of his wife who has defiled herself; or if the spirit of jealousy comes upon him, and he is jealous of his wife, though she has not defiled herself;
Numbers 5:15 then the man shall bring his wife to the priest, and bring the offering required of her, a tenth of an ephah of barley meal; he shall pour no oil upon it and put no frankincense on it, for it is a cereal offering of jealousy, a cereal offering of remembrance, bringing iniquity to remembrance.
Numbers 5:16 "And the priest shall bring her near, and set her before the LORD;
Numbers 5:17 and the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel, and take some of the dust that is on the floor of the tabernacle and put it into the water.
Numbers 5:18 And the priest shall set the woman before the LORD, and unbind [i.e. loosen, as the NASV puts it] 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.
Numbers 5:19 Then the priest shall make her take an oath, saying, 'If no man has lain with you, and if you have not turned aside to uncleanness, while you were under your husband's authority, be free from this water of bitterness that brings the curse.
For female humans in the process of becoming or already being heterosexually involved with a husband:
Song of Solomon 7:1 How graceful are your footsteps (not "feet") feet in sandals, royal maiden! Your rounded thighs are like jewels, the work of a master hand.
Song of Solomon 7:2 Your navel is a rounded bowl that never lacks mixed wine. Your belly is a heap of wheat, encircled with lilies.
Song of Solomon 7:3 Your two breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle.
Song of Solomon 7:4 Your neck is like an ivory tower. Your eyes are pools in Heshbon, by the gate of Bathrabbim. Your nose is like a tower of Lebanon, overlooking Damascus.
Song of Solomon 7:5 Your head crowns you like Carmel, and your flowing locks [mopheaded-like LOOSE long hair, longer than mouth-level] are like purple; a king is held captive in the tresses.
So, notice the difference between husband-oriented women compared to husbandless-oriented women:
First Corinthians 11:4 Any man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head,
First Corinthians 11:5 but any woman who prays or prophesies with her head unveiled dishonors her head: it is the same as if her head were shaven.
First Corinthians 11:6 For if a woman will not veil herself, then she should cut off her hair; but if it is disgraceful for a woman to be shorn or shaven [but it is NOT disgraceful for lesbian-oriented Rachel Maddow to have short boyish-like hair, although it is disgraceful for her to be a homogay sodomite type, and it is NOT disgraceful for elderly senior-citizen widows who neither need nor want to re-marry to have shortened hair done up in a "permanent"]....let her wear a veil.
Let's continue on:
First Corinthians 11:10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head, because of the angels.
Clearly, verse 10 is neither an incentive for any women to be bashed on her head with an instrument of iron or rock....nor is it a chauvenistic feminist-sexist inference to have women take charge over men. The phrase "power on her head" means "authority on her head" -- but in the sense that she should have human-male authority over her, as is plainly indicated by:
Isaiah 3:12 My people: children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. Oh my people, your leaders mislead you, and confuse the course of your paths.
Nahum 3:13 Hey, your troops are women around you. The gates of your land are wide open to your foes; fire has devoured your fortresses.
First Timothy 2:12 I allow no woman to teach or to have authority over men; she is to keep silent.
First Timothy 2:13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve;
First Timothy 2:14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.
Deuteronomy 32:42 (RSV) I will make my arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh--with the blood of the slain and the captives, from the long-haired heads of the enemy.
Back to our First Corinthians chapter 11 section:
First Corinthians 11:13 Judge among yourselves: is it right that a woman pray to God unveiled?
First Corinthians 11:14 Does not nature itself teach you that for a man to wear long hair is degrading to him,
First Corinthians 11:15 but if a woman has long hair [let alone her other glorious parts], it is her pride? For her hair is given to her for a covering [keeping in mind what Vance Havner stated, which was: 'There are four stages to the phenomenon of hair: bald, fuzz, is, and was.'].
First Corinthians 11:16 But if anyone wants to be contentious, we have no such custom [of allowing a woman to misregard her LOOSE long hair as a substitute nor adequate for a prayer veil or covering], nor the churches of God.
All this elaboration on the outward is obviously relevant and pertinent, because what is seen on the outside indicates what is present on the inside - even if such non-presentableness is done in ignorance rather than deliberately in defiant rebellion:
Proverbs 17:12 Let a man meet a she-bear robbed of her cubs, rather than a [ignorantly-or-deliberately-seductive] fool in his [or, her] [enticingly-mopheaded/indecent-hairstyled] folly.
First Corinthians 3:1 But I, brethren [sistern], could not address you as spiritual men [women], but as men [women] of the [lasciviously-alluring loose-long-haired or during-warm-weather sleevesless or slacksless or soxless] [sinful-nature] flesh, as [lurid partially-immodest] babes in Christ [IF they even are "in Christ" at all!].
Detailed elaboration on the noteworthiness of Rachel's modest (although boyish) hairstyle can be found by exploring http://sitepalace.com/warmdaysporn and http://computerarium.tripod.com/mopheads.htm plus http://interlinearbibles.tripod.com/segments and http://oldwestdress.tripod.com/coedlook containing pertinent dissertations on hairstyle and other female modesty or lack of it. A few final thoughts.
If the GOP is truly serious about taking over the White House in 2012, they will at least have a fair chance at it by making it abundantly clear (and I cannot overstate strongly enough: ABUNDANTLY clear) that they will:
(1) not only repeal and abolish forced-health-insurance-purchase/forced-preexisting-conditions Obamascare, but ALSO protect and even cherish maintenance of tweakable Social Security and fraud-removing Medicare -- thus contramanding their previous anti-SS rhetoric to the contrary (by both NOT raising the retirement age, but instead lowering it to 60....and re-instating the Cost-of-Living increase for monthly SS checks to seniors as occurred under G.W. Bush until Pelosi and Obama stopped it with their "spending freeze"), and
(2) not suggest, choose, nor appoint a woman to run as VP nor President in the 2012 election (especially in view of their sordid imposition of failed-female, sometimes-mopheaded-like-Michelle-Bachmann/Michelle-Malkin/Ann-Coulter Sarah Palin in 2008).
