“The Apostle Paul commanded us in 1 Thessalonians 5:22 to “Abstain from all appearance of evil.” Why do these feminists so strongly desire men not to abstain? Not remove or avoid temptation? Is there an ulterior motive here?”
(The Dissenter) In His discourse in Matthew 18, Jesus clearly warned about the temptation to sin and the dire need to resist it at all costs. “Woe to the world for temptations to sin,” Jesus said. He then followed up with the admonishment to remove things from our lives that lead us into temptation:
And if your hand or your foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life crippled or lame than with two hands or two feet to be thrown into the eternal fire. And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into the hell of fire.
Such is the Billy Graham rule. And whatever we want to say about Billy Graham—we certainly do not uphold him as a faithful proclaimer of God’s word to the end—he got one thing right: his rule about men being alone with women.
