  • 1 John 2:15-17
    Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
     
  • Colossians 3:5
    Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.
     
  • James 1:13-15
    Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am tempted by God"; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.
     
  • Matthew 5:27-30
    "You have heard that it was said to those of old, 'You shall not commit adultery.' But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.
     
  • Romans 13:13-14

  • James 4:4

  • Mark 7:20-23
    And He said, "What comes out of a man, that defiles a man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile a man."
     
  • Romans 8:7
    Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.
     
  • 1 Corinthians 9:24-27
    Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown. Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air. But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.
     
  • Ephesians 5:3-5
    But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

  • Isaiah 56:11-12
    Yes, they are greedy dogs

    Who cannot understand;
    They all look to their own way,
    Every one for his own gain,
    From his own territory.

But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness.

  • Proverbs 7:6-27
    For at the window of my house
    I looked through my lattice,
    And saw among the simple,
    I perceived among the youths,
    A young man devoid of understanding,
    Passing along the street near her corner;
    And he took the path to her house
    In the twilight, in the evening,
    In the black and dark night.
    And there a woman met him,
    With the attire of a harlot, and a crafty heart.
    She was loud and rebellious,
    Her feet would not stay at home.
    At times she was outside, at times in the open square,
    Lurking at every corner.
    So she caught him and kissed him;
    With an impudent face she said to him:
    " I have peace offerings with me;
    Today I have paid my vows.
    So I came out to meet you,
    Diligently to seek your face,
    And I have found you.
    I have spread my bed with tapestry,
    Colored coverings of Egyptian linen.
    I have perfumed my bed
    With myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
    Come, let us take our fill of love until morning;
    Let us delight ourselves with love.
    For my husband is not at home;
    He has gone on a long journey;
    He has taken a bag of money with him,
    And will come home on the appointed day."
    With her enticing speech she caused him to yield,
    With her flattering lips she seduced him.
    Immediately he went after her, as an ox goes to the slaughter,
    Or as a fool to the correction of the stocks,
    Till an arrow struck his liver.
    As a bird hastens to the snare,
    He did not know it would cost his life.
    Now therefore, listen to me, my children;
    Pay attention to the words of my mouth:
    Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways,
    Do not stray into her paths;
    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.
     
  • Proverbs 16:25
