ADVICE TO GIRLS AND WOMEN AGAINST IMMORALITY AND OTHER EVILS
The rate at which youths, particularly girls and women, are being lured into immorality and other sinful acts in this age, at the instance of the devil, through wicked or ungodly men, is becoming more and more alarming. Men and women of honour who fear God are becoming more and more apprehensive as to where the world is heading for. It is to help girls and women generally and female students in particular who love to do the will of God so as to enjoy His protection and other blessings, particularly salvation in the end, that we give the following advice or instructions under the direction of the spirit of God.
We hope godly girls and women will heed the instructions - for it was King Solomon of Bible fame who was inspired by God to say: “Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding. Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go; keep her; for she is thy life.” (Proverbs 4:1, 13). He also said: “If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.” – Proverbs 9:12.
Our advice, therefore, is as follows: -
Beware of bad boys and girls who tell lies and who deceive their mates into the hands of wicked people. Do not escort any ill-mannered or ungodly girlfriend or classmate of yours to her boyfriend’s home or to anywhere. It may land you in trouble. It may make ungodly boys or men, by subtle persuasion to defile you or force you by raping you and thereby make you lose your virginity which is treasured by godly parents, guardians, husbands and, above all, God Himself.
Always remember Proverbs 1:10 which says: “My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not”.
The Bible says promotion comes from God. It is a blessing which comes to one as a result of one’s skill or efficiency and devotion to duty. It is a sin to seek for it through bribery or prostitution or by messing up of one’s self with ungodly office bosses or senior officials in one’s business. The Bible says: “For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west; nor from the south. But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.” – Psalm 75:6,7.
Moreover, do not indulge in the use of drugs, such as tobacco and Indian hemp, to make you keep awake and work for very long periods when revising for your examination. Many of such do damage to the body, particularly to the brain, as can be seen in cases of youths who have thereby become mentally deranged.
It is hoped that all women and girls who read this leaflet will be encouraged to do things in the fear of God and maintain their chastity or purity or virginity. Those who have lost their virginity out of ignorance or through the luring and deceit of ungodly friends and wicked men WERE FOOLISH. But they should REPENT AND SHOULD STOP MISUSING THEMSELVES WITH MEN. IF THEY REPENT, GOD AND THEIR GODLY PARENTS OR GUARDIANS WILL HAVE MERCY ON THEM AND FORGIVE THEM, AND GODLY PEOPLE WILL SYMPATHISE WITH THEM. – Psalm 32:5; Job 33:27-30;34:31,32.
Any girl or woman who becomes pregnant through fornication or adultery should not, in order to cover her shame, terminate the pregnancy by aborting the child in her womb. That would be adding sin to sin. That apart, she runs the risk of losing her own precious life and that of the unborn child. Rather, she should send godly or good people who are friends of her parents or guardians to beg them and confess through them her sins and repent. (Proverbs 28:13,14). Godly parents, or guardians and, above all, God Himself and Christ the Lord will forgive if such a girl or woman repents thoroughly. Sinners should imitate David the Psalmist who said: “For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.” (Psalm 38:18) And John the apostle said: “If we confess our sins, he (God) is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” – 1 John 1:9.
The Lord’s Ministry and other elders of the Church, the God’s Kingdom Society are praying for you and others fervently according to the Scriptures. (1 Timothy 2:1-5 etc.) May the Almighty God be with you and others of His children everywhere always. Amen.
