Fatal Attraction: The Truth About Sexual Temptation

Proverbs 5:1-23

The Bible does not shy away from frank discussions about the strong temptation of illicit sexual relationships. In language that is refreshingly clear and direct, Proverbs 5 shows us a father carefully instructing his son about one of the most neglected but important subjects. In balanced fashion, Solomon warns his son about the dangers associated with giving into sexual temptation, while at the same time extolling the virtues of the mutually satisfying one-flesh relationship between a committed husband and wife.
