For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed. 12The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light. 13Let us walk properly as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in quarreling and jealousy. 14But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.

Sex education has been Satan’s program for sexualizing children at the earliest ages in school.  Sex Ed. preps kids to be sexually abused by adults.  Satan’s plan for the youngest and most vulnerable in our society seems to be either to 1) abort them in pregnancy, 2) murder them as soon as they come out of womb, and 3) sexually abuse those who survive.

An idol is a human crafted icon, representation of something on earth or in Heaven that you believe is endowed with one or more attributes of God. (Exodus 20: 3-7 & 14, Duet. 5: 7-10, Isaiah 44: 12-17 & Jeremiah 10: 3-7, Rom. 1: 18—27).

He becomes hungry, and his strength fails; he drinks no water and is faint. 13The carpenter stretches a line; he marks it out with a pencil. He shapes it with planes and marks it with a compass. He shapes it into the figure of a man, with the beauty of a man, to dwell in a house. 14He cuts down cedars, or he chooses a cypress tree or an oak and lets it grow strong among the trees of the forest. He plants a cedar and the rain nourishes it. 15Then it becomes fuel for a man. He takes a part of it and warms himself; he kindles a fire and bakes bread. Also he makes a god and worships it; he makes it an idol and falls down before it. 16Half of it he burns in the fire. Over the half he eats meat; he roasts it and is satisfied. Also he warms himself and says, “Aha, I am warm, I have seen the fire!” 17And the rest of it he makes into a god, his idol, and falls down to it and worships it. He prays to it and says, “Deliver me, for you are my god!” Jer 10: 3-7 3for the customs of the peoples are vanity. (a = vapor or mist). A tree from the forest is cut down and worked with an axe by the hands of a craftsman. 4They decorate it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so that it cannot move.  5Their idols are like scarecrows in a cucumber field, and they cannot speak; they have to be carried, for they cannot walk. Do not be afraid of them, for they cannot do evil, neither is it in them to do good.” Rom. 1: 18—27 “18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.  24Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. 26For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. In contrast to idols is the living God of The Bible: Jer. 10: 6There is none like you, O LORD; you are great, and your name is great in might. 7Who would not fear you, O King of the nations?

It literally says, “15Do not make a covenant with the[m] …, for when they prostitute themselves to their gods and sacrifice to them, they will invite you, and you will eat their sacrifices;” (I believe this includes taking communion in Catholic ceremonies where transubstantiation has allegedly occurred.)

1John 4: 9-   9In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. 10In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.

Decisions & actions motivated by self — apart from faith, independent from God’s inworking. Thus what is “of the flesh (carnal)” is by definition displeasing to the Lord – even things that seem “respectable!” In short, flesh generally relates to unaided human effort, i.e. decisions (actions) that originate from self or are empowered by self. This is carnal (“of the flesh”) and proceeds out of the untouched (unchanged) part of us – i.e. what is not transformed by God. Often = “My will for God 14But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires explained in verse 13. Provision = forethought, premeditation, advance-knowledge (“forethought”), enabling (allowing for) something to happen. take thought for beforehand, provide for, planning to practice evil. desires passion built on strong feelings (urges). These can be positive or negative, depending on whether the desire is inspired by faith 14But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.
