Prostitution, from Moses (as) through Muhammad (s), received severe punishment. The Bible has 100 references to whoredom. Some of the most highly regarded prophets such as Ezekiel, Isaiah, and Jeremiah rebuked the people for degeneracy into whoredom.
Depending upon the translation of various religious texts, terms such as fornication, harlotry, adultery, and whoredom tend to be used interchangeably, but the intent is clear, sex is to be limited to the spouse.
Why this scriptural concern for chaste and virtuous single women, and loyal wives? Why do most cultures throughout the world hold marital fidelity in high esteem and harlotry in low esteem? Why do the males of many species of mammals choose to mate with the least promiscuous females?
These questions can be answered when the purpose of universal and human existence becomes understood. Universal activity consists of the propagation and preservation of the species. Mating rituals and customs reflect the objective of propagating and preserving the species. Males seek to mate with chaste females who exhibit the characteristics that would lead to nurturing motherhood. Females seek to mate with the males who would most likely provide them with a secure environment in which to bring forth life and nurture it.
Whenever a society forgets its primary objective and instead lives a life of self-indulgence, male authority and morals decline, and whoredom flourishes. From Sodom and Gomorrah, through Israel at the time of its conquest by the Babylonians, through Ancient Greece and Rome, until the present time, there has never been a society that survived whoredom. Ever!
For the purpose of survival societies and religions tend to suppress sexual promiscuousness and promote chastity and marital fidelity. Most species of animals do it instinctively. The propagation and preservation of the species is a serious undertaking; life literally depends upon it. The training and activity of all peoples has always been based upon their contribution to the survival of the family unit.
In Western society many consider the family to be an obsolete form of societal structure. Education has become vocational in nature and bears no relationship to preparing youth for the propagation and preservation of the species. A race consciousness does not exist; it has been supplanted by a ME consciousness.
Westernized governments and atheistic groups expend considerable effort in eliminating the authority of the male and weakening the family structure. Sura 8:36 explained this process clearly and succinctly in the words, “The unbelievers expend their riches in debarring others form the path of God.”
Indeed, at every turn we see efforts expended to destroy the natural relationship of men and women and reduce them to automaton workers and insatiable consumers. College campuses serve as spawning grounds for all sorts of influences that denigrate the feminine characteristics that served to nurture humankind through the ages. Grade schools teach alternative sexual lifestyles and how to do it. Educational institutions in the aggregate provide training facilities for whoredom and sexual debauchery.
All that we see happening in the world today has been prophesized. As Solomon said, “There is nothing new under the Sun.” Truth always remains truth; it never becomes ancient or modern. The truth is that whoredom destroys society. Those men who understand the truth and do nothing will be held accountable.
