Identifying Harlots That Come To Church – Pastoral Introspection

Pastors? Are you examining your mental and spiritual walk before God? Are you having difficulty in your marriage? If your marriage is fine, are you still lusting for Suzy sitting in the front row of the service? Are you in prayer on a regular daily basis for you and not for sermons? Are you avoiding the easy pitfalls of sight lust? Are you falling for women in the house of prayer instead of falling on your knees in love of and for God? Are you avoiding your accountability partner to have that regular meeting to inspect your heart and mind?

IF any of these questions have bothered you, then it is time for introspection.

Introspection means “the examination or observation of one’s own mental and emotional processes:”

For the women, it’s not always the ones in the red dresses that are the harlots.

I am firmly aware that there are pastors that take advantage of emotionally unstable women, but just because women are vulnerable, it doesn’t mean that they have a right to cross the line into sexual sins. Being human is not a good excuse to sin. You just do not throw away God’s righteousness by grace and your personal discipline for immoral sex with any man or woman, let alone, a pastor.

Eternity in hell is too long to think about why you couldn’t discipline yourself.

Note well what Paul said, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”

Paul said in 1 Corinthians 6:15-20 “Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not! Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For “the two,” He says, “shall become one flesh.” But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.

Flee sexual immorality.

Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

Since the Pastor Juan McFarland debacle, it is safe to say that what Pastor Paul Washer said is true.

There are unregenerate people in the pews and the pulpit.

Jude 4 says “For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Instead of repenting of sexual sins, sexual sins is permitted. This is lewdness. And while doing so, they deny the Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ. In other words, they deem their Lordship null and void. Sin is permissible and God is happy with it because that’s who you are. You teach this to the people and they are happy with it too.

These pastors are posing as if they know the Lord but they practice lawlessness.

There are harlots and perverted pastors that say that they love God, claim to even know the Lord, yet, they practice the very sin that Jesus died on the cross for. True conversion takes place when repentance and obedience to the teachings of the commandments of Jesus is employed.

The harlots are in the house of the Lord.

Proverbs 6:26 says, “For by means of a harlot a man is reduced to a crust of bread; and an adulteress will prey upon his precious life.”

Strong’s Concordance defines a harlot as “(highly- fed and therefore wanton); to commit adultery (usually of the female, and less often of simple fornication, rarely of involuntary ravishment); figuratively, to commit idolatry.”

In essence, by a prostitute, because the verse above notes, that “a man is reduced to a piece of bread…”

Why?

A foolish man will spend all he has to have sex with a harlot and will only have enough money left to buy a piece of bread.

The older brother of the prodigal son stated plainly that when the younger son went out, he spent his inheritance on prostitutes.

The local churches across the nation has the doors open for the harlots and the pulpits have some perverted pastors.

So it is not all one sided.

They do not represent the church. They represent sinners that never made a deliberate commitment to the Lord. They are servants of the house of satan. When they come to church, their plan is to find a target and trip them up.

Sanctified pastors must quickly identify the harlots. Married pastors must pay attention. Wives of pastors must doubly pay attention. Everything is not as innocent as one thinks. Every subtle, innocent move is designed to get you to drop your guard. Once your guard is down, they will make their move. By the time you feel the blade, it’s too late.

Then there is the porn and masturbating pastor that never entered into deliverance, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. These are the ones that get into trouble and entertain the next step of acting out.

A female or male body.

1. The dress of a harlot.

Proverbs 6:10 “And there a woman met him, with the attire of a harlot, and a crafty heart.”

There is nothing that is left to the imagination. She could be wearing a simple, but overtly curvaceous dress. Or tight hugging pants. It could be the blouse that is just a bit too revealing or worldly that may cause the eyes to explore the cleavage. It could be the hair. It could be the jewelry. It could be the crossed legs in stilettos on the front pew. It could be a high skirt.

In the OT, the harlots wore items so that they are distinguished.

Harlots are crafty in the heart and plan well in advance what to wear so that it instantaneously catches the prey’s attention. Like mice sniffing for cheese, a man’s eyes will travel to “investigate” because according to Dr. William Struthers, a man is wired for sex. His mind and his eyes are connected. Once he sees what he likes, the mind will further investigate.

How?

Jesus said in Matthew 5:28 “But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”

The next thing that happens is that the preacher is no longer concentrating on God, but as planned, the bait is too much to ignore. As like with all mice that sniffs out its meal, the next step is to eat. Not all women plan to do this but just watch what the unregenerate women wear each week. If you see a serious pattern, it’s an attempt on your life.

2. A crafty heart.

The craftiness of a harlot is found in Proverbs 6:24-25 “To keep you from the evil woman, from the flattering tongue of a seductress. Do not lust after her beauty in your heart, nor let her allure you with her eyelids.”

A pastor must know that for a house harlot, every move is planned.

Their beauty is the bait. The flattery is to disarm you. Her eyelids are accenting her and like Morse Code, they signal sex.

Many pastors, especially married pastors will not see it coming, but the wife does.

That’s why the pastor must learn to run like Joseph and leave his coat in the hand of the harlot.

If Joseph didn’t run when he did, the fate of the nation of Israel would have been jeopardized.

Pastor, if you are having marital problems, solve them quickly. Because it is at this point that the enemy strategically sends the harlot right into the house of worship. The devil sends the harlots even when the marriage is tight.

Pastors, do your “due diligence.”

Do a thorough check up on you walk before God. But you need a set of objective eyes on you that could see if you are not up to par spiritually. It is very easy to mask our lack of personal passion for the Lord. In the pulpit, it is very easy to assume that you have it all together. If you are really honest, you would say that you don’t.

Preaching on fire for God is different than living on fire for God.

3. Learn the art of running.

Genesis 39:11-13 says “But it happened about this time, when Joseph went into the house to do his work, and none of the men of the house was inside, that she caught him by his garment, saying, “ Lie with me.” But he left his garment in her hand, and fled and ran outside. And so it was, when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand and fled outside,”

The real lesson begins with never find yourself in compromising positions.

Had he known not to be left alone, it would not have been necessary for Joseph to run. However, he did the next best thing.

He ran.

The dream God gave you is much bigger than an immoral woman.

Learn well Proverbs 11:22.

“As a ring of gold in a swine’s snout,
So is a lovely woman who lacks discretion.”

When an immoral woman is after you for one thing, just remember this Proverb.

When multiple women are willing to fornicate or commit adultery with their pastor, whether he made sexual advances or you are a temple prostitute, you have been reduced to the gold ring in the snout of a pig and you lack discretion.

So pastor?

Are you in Christ or are you a son of Belial?

 

I Want To Sleep With My Pastor

All across America, there are many women, (Moabite or Jezebel) that seek to sleep with their pastors. We have covered, extensively, the male pastors that “fall from grace” into Secret Sexual Sins in the bedroom without really tapping into the world of sexual immorality on the women’s side.

The issues that face the church today are serious. We do not think that sexual immorality is that big a deal.

If this is what you are thinking, listen to these statistics.

50% of pastors struggle with porn. 49% of evangelical Christians struggle with porn.

Yes, these statistics is directly connected to this subject because if pastors are having a problem with Internet porn (by the way 89% of Internet porn comes from the United States- over 244 million sites with 300 sites added each day). You know pastors and Christians are struggling with self sex, commonly called masturbation. And if the pastors are married, and their marriages isn’t rock solid, a scandal is only a matter of time.

It is important to point out that the situation with the late Dr. Zachary Tims, his sex scandal was a clear violation of the Word of God. There is no question in my mind that when you are having an affair with a stripper, that the idea (based on preponderance) came from the Internet.

For extra measure, this stripper was in Spain. So for a year or more, he would fly to Spain. Perfect cover almost. Eventually, it was exposed and another marriage was destroyed by lust in the heart of a pastor at the hands of a seducing spirit operating in a stripper.

Some of you are already saying “Why are you bringing this up again?”

Because there is no question in my mind that another scandal is about to be brought to light. You do not have to be a prophet to figure it out. The percentages never disappoint. Perhaps you are in a local church and you are watching your pastor being seduced or is seduced already.

This example of a scandal, to date, is what takes place in many of our churches because we are too afraid to deal with exposing and uncovering Secret Sexual Sins. Especially when people and pastors are supposed to be upholding the standard of God’s Word. Not just in the preaching department, but in the “working out your soul salvation with fear and trembling.”

According to Shelley Lubben of The Pink Cross Foundation, “porn stars are prostitutes.”

In fact, according to Shelley Lubben, a former porn star that testified before a Senate Sub-Committee on Pornography, unless you are on the “A” list of porn stars, prostitutes get paid more than low end porn performers because for 16 hours of work, depending upon the kind of production they are doing, the porn stars get paid according to what they are told to do. If they do not do what the producers want them to do, the porn stars do not get paid.

And porn stars are forced to go into prostitution to make more money. It is known that they make much more money for less time “working.”

For 16 hours of work on a porn set, they may walk away with between $350.00 to $500.00, whereas a prostitute may walk away with $1,600.00 or more for only 2 hours of work.

The trade off is disgusting because of STDs, sexual assault or rape, pregnancies, if they occur, usually end in abortion, (allegedly a prostitute aborted Tiger Woods’ baby) and possibly being murdered, let alone get arrested for prostitution.

According to one article called “The Seamless Fabric,” between porn stars, prostitutes, and strippers, and women and teen girls that are human trafficked, predominantly for the sex trade, it is a “seamless fabric.”

In other words, there is no separation or distinction.

This is what I first thought after 10 years of bondage to porn. In ignorance, I thought that these “issues” were separate and that porn was a completely isolated thing.

Why?

It lessened the guilt and shame factor.

Quite the contrary.

For any sexually addicted pastor, the transition from fantasy to reality is just one decision and one female body away.

Women are attracted to powerful men in the pulpit. There is no question about it. However, there must be a call to holiness, discipline, and sanctification from both the women that come to church and the pastors. At the very least, the male pastor must be on guard.

However, this is somewhat discouraging because the male pastor will not see seduction coming. It takes the wife of a male pastor to see the seduction.

When a male pastor is conversing with a female, it may look innocent, and sometimes, it’s about nothing. However, when you see something that is more to it than meets the eye, it is better to play it safe, and talk to your husband about it. If he brushes you and your admonition off, then he is not paying attention. In the back of his mind, he is already looking forward to the next time he will have a conversation with that hot looking parishioner.

Sometimes, the mistress is not that hot looking. Sometimes, it’s the kind of sex they give that hooks a male pastor.

These issues must be addressed because we are seeing pastors fall into sexual sins more rapidly than before. Because of the Internet and because male pastors and women are loose in their living, it is very easy to fall prey to the slick preachers that promise them the world.

There are predators and wanderers in the pulpit but there are, what I call, “passive predators.”

They are called Moabite women or Jezebels, depending upon their objective. Their beauty is their weapon of choice. If you are married to a pastor, wife, you must be on the lookout for these women that desire your husband.

In the world, there’s the Beyonce’s, the Angelina’s, and the Rihanna’s.

They all have one thing in common.

Intentional Sexual Seduction.

Seductive women of the world are influencing the women in the church that play both sides of the fence. Carnal women always fight righteousness to fulfill “connection” needs.

How are these “professional” seductresses influencing carnal Christian women?

Television shows, movies, listening to and watching worldly music and music videos, and the company seductive women in the church keep Monday through Saturday.

What is it that they are learning?

How to tug on a man’s heart to get them to do almost anything when you give them your body.

Sadly, there are many women that knowingly scheme to “trap” men because of a male’s one track mind; thinking with what is below their belt line.

There’s a constant struggle in the church for the minds of God’s people. When people get saved, the Lord gave Paul the answer to why people struggle and can’t get to the next level.

The failure to renew their minds with the Word of God.

When a woman wants to sleep with their pastor, it is a revelation of the fact that they are searching for “connection” by intimacy with “power.” According to the book of Genesis, we see that women are influenced by words. However, it’s not just the words but the way that words are used.

The devil used the serpent for cover and the devil had a way with words to depict God as Someone that was withholding something. Made God out to be the bad Guy. You can’t be against somebody for nothing. The devil gave Eve a reason to be against God. Words and the way the devil used those words gave Eve enough reason to defect.

Now mind you that seduction happens on both sides of the fence. It’s not all women and it is not all men. It is a combination of the two meeting at precisely the right or wrong moment.

An unguarded pastor will drop his guard when beauty approaches him.

The most vulnerable moment of a pastor is after he preaches. It is there that he needs to be guarded by his wife. He is weak physically and emotionally. If the marriage isn’t rock solid, this is the place where the devil will attack.

More later, in part two.
