The Immoral Church

Prov 5:3-4 For the lips of an immoral woman drip honey, And her mouth is smoother than oil; But in the end she is bitter as wormwood, Sharp as a two-edged sword.

Follow my thoughts on this one.
The word of God is compared to a sword.
The church is compared to a bride, that is, a woman.
Here we have an immoral woman.
Perhaps the analogy is a false church.
Her message is sickeningly sweet and slick.
It tastes good.
It is easily swallowed.
In the end, the message is poisonous.
It is deadly.
Her words are “sharp as a two-edged sword”, which compares it to the word of God.
The analogy is this is a false church with a message that looks and sounds like the word of God.
But there is no genuine repentance or salvation in this message.
The true word of God does not kill you, it gives you life.
It doesn’t give you honey and poison, it gives you the Bread and Living Water.
Be wary of the immoral church.

One thought on “The Immoral Church

  1. Your message brought these verses to my mind. Especially verse 5.
    2 Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3:3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 3:4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
