And what does the Bible say about whores?
Proverbs has a whole section condemning loose women and those who indulge them.
Now, what did Jesus say to Peter in the book of Acts concerning calling “unclean that which the Lord has made clean?”
No, probably not mob connected.
Was issued a lifetime post-Presidential pardon by BJ Clinton.
Which wasn’t needed because she’s clearly “not guilty”
So you believe Ashley Dupre has turned her life to Jesus and is now clean?
Nope. But as a sinner cleansed by the blood of Jesus, I don’t feel qualified to issue blanket condemnations on an anonymous website. When we’re before His throne, we’ll have to account for every word...
Do you believe that no prostitute or “whore” has ever turned her life to Jesus had became clean? That’s what your original post seemed to have implied.
Rachab is not mentioned in the lineage of David given at the end of the book of Ruth. I think St. Matthew is the first to have her marrying an Israelite.
When Judah thinks his widowed daughter-in-law has "played the whore" he is about to have her put to death, until she proves that he is the baby daddy.
Generally it seems that the emphasis is on Israelite women not becoming prostitutes--that is severely punished--but I don't know if there are any real penalties against men for going to prostitutes. Of course the wisdom literature such as Proverbs strongly urges against doing so--but that's different from being stoned or burned to death for an offense.
There are many passages, these I can site.
They shall not take a wife that is a whore, or profane; neither shall they take a woman put away from her husband: for he is holy unto his God. Leviticus 21:7
Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge. Hebrews 13:4
Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10
Do not prostitute thy daughter, to cause her to be a whore; lest the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness. Leviticus 19:29
There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel. Deuteronomy 23:17
For a whore is a deep ditch; and a strange woman is a narrow pit. Proverbs 23:27
For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Ephesians 5:5
For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand. Revelation 19:2
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. Revelation 21:8
A lot of stuff went on in the Old West that was never on Little House on the Prairie. :-))
Prostitution was openly practiced in Denver until after the turn of the 20th Century.
I think when guys see an attractive woman, even if she’s a whore, they somehow equate her attractiveness with “virtue”.
I mean, if she were fugly guys would be screaming guilty and not sugarcoat her whoredom, lol.
It happened all over the country around that time. The "progressive" movement viewed the women as victims who were in need of their help. From what I've read most of the women would rather have been left alone.
From a moral standpoint, why shouldn’t we legalize Prostitution like we did with alcohol?
