Q: Can you elaborate on Proverbs 22:14 about a strange woman being a deep pit?

A: Proverbs 22:14 The mouth of strange women is a deep pit: he that is abhorred of the Lord shall fall therein.

When God abhors a man and wants to punish a man, the man will fall into this deep ditch called the mouth of a strange woman.

Falling into the temptations of a strange woman is punishment for the wickedness that we allow to fester and grow inside our hearts.

YAH sees our hearts and gave us a conscience that we have the ability to keep clean if we desire to honor Him.

Ecclesiastes 7: 26 And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart is snares and nets, and her hands as bands: whoso pleaseth God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be taken by her.

Men that don’t want to please God tend to fall into those traps. Our lust turns into sin, our sin causes us to make bad decisions, then we get lives full of stress and family failure (fornication, adultery, divorce, fatherlessness), and our children suffer.

Our sinful distractions such as pornography and lust are the thieves that rob us of our true productive vision and purposes. When we fail to be real men, our communities suffer as well. Sin is just a bad deal all around.

We need to return to pleasing God and Keeping His Commandments.
