Impurity Sermon Illustrations

In the national gallery in Stockholm there is a remarkable, almost terrible, painting. A path winds in and out among the rocks along the side of a mountain. Just above the path there is the opening to a cave in the rocks. At the entrance stands what seems at first to be a beautiful woman. It is a woman's head and face, but the head is set on the lithe and sinewy body of a lion. Below this beast with the woman's face are torn robes, and the rocks are splashed with blood. The cold, steel eyes in the beautiful face are turned toward the path, along which may be seen approaching another victim. Whoever painted the picture preached a great sermon. Many a young man would do well to get a copy of that painting and hang it on the wall of his room; and underneath it let him write the words of Paul, "If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy" (I Cor. 3:17).
