In the Bible, it is one who “mongers” with “whores”; in other words, one who visits prostitutes. But when you rad the literal translation of some of the bible passages referencing “whore-mongers”, you will see that is applies to ANYONE that engages in sexual intercourse outside of marriage. In other words, every women having sex outside of marriage is a “whore”; and every man having sex is a “monger”. I think in today’s vernacular, we would call them “adulterers”, but the Bible has it different!
As I read some of these passages, I find a few interesting points.
- There is no difference if the sex was for “monetary gain” – it is still whore-mongering.
- Sexual Immorality for the purpose of satisfying lust -it is still whore mongering.
- Sex outside of marriage between two consenting partners – it is still whore mongering
So for those who like to quote from the Bible, remember, there is no difference between paying a stranger for sex or being in a dating relationship and have sex. A man having sex with his long-time girlfriend is just as much of a whore-monger as a man who finds prostitutes on the street for sex!
See? You mom told you to read the Bible! Think of the things you missed!
