Self Examination Questions: The Sixth Commandment (part 2)


Salomon Liscovius, from Ev. Luth. Gebets-Schatz 

4.       Haven’t my actions, now and then, been impudent and thoughtless? [thus revealing trust in myself instead of God, and my failure to appreciate my vulnerability to sexual temptation?  Vanity, arrogance, and irresponsibility make a person vulnerable to lust.]

 

5.       Haven’t I often leant my ears to impure conversations, my eyes to look at lewd people, pictures, or other causes of stumbling?  Haven’t I myself given offense to others through suggestive, unseemly words?

 

6.       Have I guarded myself earnestly from all impurity, fornication, and whoring, regardless of what other names they may go by?

 

7.       Have I avoided idleness, gluttony, drunkenness, evil company and slutty or sexually suggestive clothing?
