Are You A Whore ?

(Rom 2:1)Therefore you are without excuse, O man, everyone who judges; for in that in which you judge another, you condemn yourself, for you who judge do the same things.

(Rom 2:2)But know that the judgment of God is according to truth on those who practice such things.

One of my favorite scenes in Tyler Perry’s movie Meet The Browns is where the one brother starts to go down the line of his late Dad’s women describing them as various types of Ho’s.  When ever we hear the term Whore the first thing that comes to most people’s mind is the image of a prostitute. From a biblical prospective anytime a woman had sex with anyone who was not her husband whether she was compensated or not she was considered to be whoring.  In the Bible the only sex that was permissible for a woman was with her husband or if she were a man’s concubine. Many today feel that there is no such thing as a modern-day concubine but that is a topic we’ll save for another time. One fascinating thing I found the term whoring is found at least 8 times in the Bible but only two of them actually refer to sex the rest actually refer to idol worship. Here is an example (Eze 20:30) Therefore say to the house of Israel, So says the Lord Jehovah: Are you defiled in the same way as your fathers? And do you go whoring after their abominations? God was often upset with the children of Israel because he actually took care and provided for them.  Yet they would often serve other Gods, Idols who were not real. They adopted the worship as well as other practices of strangers and when in captivity the ways of the country they lived in. This angered God then, and still angers him today, because many of us myself included are or have been guilty of whoring.

In the scripture above God looks at us the same way that we look at others. None of us have it all together we all have issues and we need to concentrate on ourselves and leave others alone. Many of us are guilty of whoring in one form or another whether we want to admit it or not we are whores. Some just as the children of Israel have adopted the ways of this world and created idols because everything else in life is more important than God. We are whores in many ways today and often do not realize it here are some examples.

1.We have Parental Whores parents who refuse to parent their children they are more concerned about being their children’s friend than being their parents. They shower their children with gifts and fail to gain their respect, they reward their children’s bad behaviour by giving them anything and everything that they want.

2. We have Emotional Whores these are good people who constantly deal with other people’s emotional problems and drama but never take the time to heal themselves. Everybody dumps on you but when you are going through something no one has time to listen to you and your concerns.

3. We have Work Whores it’s always about work, work, work, you work so much and so hard that you really have no life outside of work and often times what is so sad is that all of your hard work goes unappreciated.

4. We have Creative Whores these are gifted and talented people who don’t have a real life they are always at it when it comes to their passion. There is nothing wrong with putting the time in to perfect your gifts and talents but there has got to be a balance. God who gave you those gifts and talents deserves some quality time along with those who truly love and care for you.

5. We have Count On Me Whores always there when anybody and everybody needs something you give, you give, you give and get nothing in return. God wants us to help and serve each other but there are limits. You can put yourself in the hospital helping everybody else and none of them will call not alone come to the hospital to visit you. Remember Jesus did very few miracles in his home town, he also instructed his disciples to shake the dust off their feet anywhere that they went and were not received God does not want us to wear ourselves out for anybody there is a difference between HELPING and WHORING. 

6. Finally we could go on and on but finally we have The Church Whore these are people who are always in church every time the church is open they are there. Which is the biggest problem they are just they’re taking up space and time. Ask them what the pastor preached about they don’t know, ask them what it really means to be a Christian they don’t know, ask them how they live out their Christianity in their daily life they have no clue. These are people who have no life outside of church they are nothing at home or on the job but they have a major title at church. These are people who are in the way and hindering the progress of their local church. These are people who can’t sing but join the choir, they can’t count but want to be treasurer, they have no people skills but want be over something. You know the type Church Whores stay away from them !!!

Looking back over my life I realize that there have been way too many times when I have been guilty of whoring. I’ve given way too much of my talent, time, and myself to the wrong people. The Bible says that a workman is worthy of decent wages I’ve been grossly under paid many times. Don’t get me wrong we should always help and do for others but there is a big difference between helping and whoring. Helping is APPRECIATEDwhoring isn’t sometimes God wants us to help and we won’t get as much as a Thank You but whoring is an unhealthy lifestyle that only drains and brings us down so ask yourself are you a HELPER or a WHORE Be Encouraged and Blessed Minister Mike.

(Mat 7:6)Do not give that which is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet and turn again and tear you.
