It is our wisest and our safest course to stand at the farthest distance from sin;
Not to go near the house of the harlot, but to fly from all
appearance of evil.
Keep to a path far from her...do not go near the door of her house!"
Pro 5:8 Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:
The best course to prevent falling into the
pit...is to keep at the greatest distance from the pit.
He who will
be so bold as to attempt to dance upon the brink of the pit-may
find by woeful experience, that it is a righteous thing with God
that he should fall into the pit!
Sin is a plague, yes, the greatest and most infectious plague in the
world; and yet, ah! how few are there that tremble at it, that keep
at a distance from it!
