Contrary to popular belief, Solomon’s purpose in writing about the strange woman was not to use her as an example for young men to stay away from sexual immorality; there was something much deeper in his words.
We were robbed of learning their true meaning because our cemetery (seminary) – indoctrinated leaders were either unaware or unwilling to teach what Solomon wanted to convey to his son.
Though the book of Proverbs is thousands of years old, “the strange woman” remains an elusive yet powerful force on the world stage, hidden behind generations of deception, sucking any life she can find out of her victims and leaving their carcasses in a trail of blood behind her.
Make no mistake about it, “the strange woman” is alive and well . . . even “on the prowl” today.
Endowed with supernatural wisdom, Solomon once wrote of her:
For she has cast down many wounded, and all who were slain by her were strong men. Her house is the way to hell, descending to the chambers of death.
Identifying and avoiding this slayer of strong men is not a task that is form-fitted for the comfortable. In fact, it’s actually a very lonely road.
It requires facing the facts and calling things what they are. It requires walking away from familiar and popular beliefs that just don’t add up and embracing other unpopular beliefs that do.
Sadly enough, departing from “the strange woman” will cause you to make enemies among those you once held dear.
In fact, it will likely be the most costly decision you will ever have to make in your life.
I close this introduction out with a question to the seeker.
Do you love truth for the sake of truth, or do you love what is comfortable and familiar?
A satisfied soul loathes the honeycomb, but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.
Facing the truth about the strange woman can be a bitter pill, but will you love it?
If you take this dive with me, I believe it will settle a lot of questions and suspicions that you may have, but if you have made a covenant with “the strange woman,” it will require you to swallow “the bitter thing” and make some decisions.
Do you want a challenge in your walk with the Most High? Do you want to dig deep?
