Solomon gives seven safeguards to secure a sexually pure life and common lies we believe about sexual temptation

Safeguard 1: Embrace the Word as your only hope – 2:1-11, 5:1-6, 6:20-24, 7:1-5

  • Lie: “I can defeat sexual temptation without the power of the Word!”

Safeguard 2: Ponder your proximity – 5:7-14, 6:24-26, 7:6-9

  • Lie: “I can hang around sexual temptation and not fall into sin!”

Safeguard 3: Trust God’s design for sexual fulfillment – 5:15-23

  • Lie: “It’s not a total distortion of God’s design to find sexual fulfillment outside of marriage!”

Safeguard 4: Guard our heart and eyes – 6:25-35

  • Lie: “A few distorted sexual desires and a couple corrupt glances are not a huge deal!”

Safeguard 5: Remember the Naïve – 7:1-27

  • Lie: “I know a lot of people who have fallen into sexual sin, but that won’t be me!”

Safeguard 6: Consider the cost – 2:18-19, 5:7-14, 21-23, 6:27-35, 7:22-27

  • Lie: “I can sin without serious consequences!”

Safeguard 7: Know who to avoid – 2:16-17, 5:3-6, 20, 6:24-26, 7:8-21

  • Lie: “I don’t need the Scriptures to tell me who will make me happy!”
