In spiritual terms "whoredom" is worshiping other gods before God. The first sin; the original sin was for a whoring. "The Tree of Life", symbolic of Jesus, was standing there in the midst of the Garden and Eve glanced away from it and stood under "The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil". Why? Because the "grass was greener" she thought, under "the other tree". "The Tree of Life" offered two things: sustenance and hope. "The other tree" offered beauty, pleasure and knowledge. Eve fornicated with the "other tree"; the one in which the serpent lived. She bedded down with other gods, in this case, her god was her "self", because she sought to please her "self". Her own "flesh" was her idol because it's her own senses she sought to gratify.
Because she pleasured herself and didn't die, Adam turned away form God and fornicated with "another god"; his own "self". Thereafter, they remained with God, but became whores to their own flesh. "Doing what is right in their own eyes" is whoredom. Those who mess around with gratification of "the self" ignore the will of God. It's their own flesh to which they bow! Oh, there may be a image of wood, gold, stone or any material there to which they bow, but ultimately they are bowing to their "self". They are "doing what they want to do" without regard to God who says "I am a jealous God". In spite of God's jealousy they go a whoring after other gods!
Leviticus 20:5 Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people. Leviticus 18:21 And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord."Molech was the name of the god of pagan Ammonites. Even Solomon fornicated with Molech. He went a whoring after that religion of the foreign people.

While fathers brought forth their sons, the priests of this god played drums so that the fathers could not hear the pleas of the child as he was placed into the fire which burned in the belly of this false god.
Does that sound familiar? It should! For safety and prosperity even Christians in "The Third Reich" heard the trains coming with the wales of Jews going to their death. It has been said by some that "we just sang a little louder"!
When I think of Molech I think of abortion because parents threw their seed into the fire! I think specifically of the burning of saline abortion, but it applies as well to the destruction of the seed of man in the womb in any fashion. I'm sure Hitler smiles as his "Third Reich" still lives in the hearts of the entire world. Even "Christian" America has gone a whoring with Molech as Hitler participates in the tryst. You, the devil and Molech are an unholy trinity in whoredom if the silent scream of the unborn is muffled by the pat pat pat of drums or by singing a little louder! You whore!
Most of the worship of pagan gods is sex centered. They even had male and female temple prostitutes. Homosexuality was rampant because it's an abomination to God and pagan gods relished in the idea at Jehovah vomiting at their lasciviousness. Abortion, passing your own seed through the fire, is an disgusting to the Lord because of the whoredom associated with it!
Whoredom is not always as blatant as Molech. Going a whoring is not always putting your own seed in the fire. Whoredom can be as "benign" as doing things other people do just because it's trivialized. To what am I referring? Astrology, positive thinking, the balance of forces, the marital arts and other borrowed rituals from pagan gods. Let's take Yoga for instance. "The lie" is commonly said "Yoga is okay. It's not a religion." Neither is throwing a baby into the fire "a religion". It's a pagan ritual just as Yoga is a pagan practice. In doing Yoga you respect "other gods" as you disrespect the One True God! You are a whoring with Vishnu or other Hindu gods.

The serpent beguiled Eve to eat of the forbidden tree. The serpent deceived even Solomon to go a whoring after Molech and the serpent deceives you into bowing to Vishnu. God sheds tears because he is a jealous God! Why keep your spiritual virginity for God? Because you are the bride of Jesus. As brides of this regal bridegroom we must never go a whoring after other gods, even bowing to them in various postures, which by the way, billions of people made it through life without doing Yoga!
What is it that you should do whether it be any "New Age" activity? Quit being the whore. Keep fidelity to God! God smiles with joy when our fidelity is to him and him alone. We must never make God jealous!
