Should I see a prostitute?
I am 37. I live in a shared house where we can’t have a partner. I live on a low pension fund and my social worker has suggested seeing a sex worker so I can experience it at least once. Being a Christian, I have mixed feelings as I know I won’t have a girlfriend ever because of the shared house but I also have reservations.
I wonder, at times, just what is being taught in so-called Christian religions these days.
"Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? May it never be!" (I Corinthians 6:15).
I assume that you have chosen to live in the group home because you can afford it and not because you don't have other options, though they might be less desirable. It doesn't mean you can't choose to date a woman and get married. True, you can't bring a woman into your group home, but that is only proper because an unmarried woman should not be with an unmarried man in his room.
The fundamental flaw is the belief that all people have the right to experience sex at least once. That is not what God said. Sex is a right of married couples but it is forbidden to single people. "Marriage is to be held in honor among all, and the marriage bed is to be undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge" (Hebrews 13:4).
Decisions are not to be made based on your desires because that is how Satan tricks us into sinning (James 1:13-16). Decisions cannot be made based on what other people say because many people are not following God. It is far too easy to follow other people into hell. The only way to make good moral choices is to obey what God has said.
"By this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments. The one who says, "I have come to know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; but whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked" (I John 2:3-6).
