WE HAVE TURNED THE BIBLE INTO THE BOOGEYMAN CREATING FEAR

Over the years uneducated ministers have turned the Bible into the Boogeyman. What they say is not necessarily what the Bible says but it creates fear. But who cares if something is not true, but repeated over and over in your lifetime as facts. I have not in my life time ever been taught correctly the biblical sexual laws and commandments. Therefore I struggle with the term, "tell the truth shame the devil" now that I know the difference between fear and facts. In this case on the subject of sex surrounding the laws, the devil is feeling really good because the facts are being withheld.

There is a scripture stating, 1 Corinthians 10:23(KJV) 23 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not. So, do you settle for a lie or hold back the truth because either way the devil remains unshamed.

Who should really show shame when preaching about sexual discourses, because when it comes down to the biblical topics surrounding sex the preaching or teaching doesn't meet the standards of telling the truth to shame the devil, because the subject around fornication and adultery are never spoken of in truths but out of fear.

As an example: Adultery of the husband and of the wife, are distinctively different between the two and there are ways technically where they are alike. But the ancient Jewish law where adultery comes from grew out of a patriarchal society, and does not recognize the husband's infidelity to his marriage vows completely wrong but anything the wife does outside the marriage vows is regarded as a private wrong committed against the husband. The biblical husbands can have multiple wives, a wife cannot have multiple husbands. A biblical husband can have sex with a single woman and not commit adultery but a wife cannot. The only thing off limits to a (Jewish) man is sex with a married Jewish woman. Married gentile women have no Mosaic laws to protect them from Jewish men. The Boogeyman philosophy behind sex is that it is all a sin. But that belief is not shaming the devil it is actually shaming you for not telling the truth.
