(Pro 5:23 KJV) He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.
As I continue looking for specific acts of unrighteousness I see a literal and a figurative focus in this verse. The literal warning has to do with adultery. It is clear that Solomon is passing on the word of the Lord about sexual sin.
The figurative point is that false wisdom is the strange woman that is trying to seduce God’s people into committing spiritual adultery. In Proverbs we see constant reference to the force of anti-wisdom trying to turn our heads, telling us we don’t need to be bound by God’s hang-ups, saying there is a way of compromise. As this verse points out, that is the way of death.
So? Our modern culture is all about watering down the standards of God. He makes it very clear what He expects. As always, the choice is ours.
