Of the moth and fiery light

FLEE WORLDLINESS
While on the Majestic rig last month: A common sight is that of many colorful moths fliting about the colorful bright light from the hot rig lamps. Alas, in the morning, several of these moths lie flat on the rig floor – all dead. They were undone and consumed by flirtatious attractions that they refused to let go.

For a christian to be attracted to anything that is ungodly, worldly and sinful is a clear and imminent danger. It is like the attraction of a moth towards open flames. The moth gets consumed at the end.
 
“The world is no friend of grace to lead us to Christ”

James 4:4
Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
