Jer 3:9-17 Part 1, Only Acknowledge Thine Iniquity

[Study Aired January 24, 2021]

Jer 3:9  And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks.
Jer 3:10  And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith the LORD.
Jer 3:11  And the LORD said unto me, The backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah.
Jer 3:12  Go and proclaim these words toward the north, and say, Return, thou backsliding Israel, saith the LORD; and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful, saith the LORD, and I will not keep anger for ever.
Jer 3:13  Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the LORD thy God, and hast scattered thy ways to the strangers under every green tree, and ye have not obeyed my voice, saith the LORD.
Jer 3:14  Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:
Jer 3:15  And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.
Jer 3:16  And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith the LORD, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of the LORD: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more.
Jer 3:17  At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the LORD; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the LORD, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart.

We often read:

1Co 1:26  For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
1Co 1:27  But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
1Co 1:28  And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
1Co 1:29  That no flesh should glory in his presence.
1Co 1:30  But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
1Co 1:31  That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

Because no one of note on the world stage even knows we exist, we think that “the foolish… the weak… the base and the despised are all the result of our calling. Such is not the case, even though it is true that the world considers us to be all those things.

What we are told is that when Christ chose us, He found us in that state. That is His estimation of us, not just this world, but Him also. The Greek reads simply, “He has chosen the foolish of the world.” The English translation “foolish things” is taken from the single Greek word ‘moros’, which is the Greek root of our English word ‘moron’, simply meaning a fool. It is no compliment to be called a moron! Nevertheless, that is who God has chosen to confound the wise of this world. The fact that He can take a moron, and accomplish His plan and purpose through that moron, has the effect of humbling us as well as the wise of this world. Here is Strong’s definition of this Greek word ‘moros’:

Probably form the base of G3466; dull or stupid (as if shut up), that is, heedless(morally) blockhead, (apparently) absurd: – fool (-ish, X -ishness).

Here is how is translated in the King James Version of the scriptures:

Total KJV Occurrences: 13
foolish, 7
Mat 7:26, Mat 25:2-3 (2), Mat 25:8, 1Co 1:27, 2Ti 2:23, Tit 3:9
fools, 3
fool, 2
foolishness, 1

We are all spiritual and physical fools, or we would not qualify to be chosen of the Lord. The world certainly considers us to be the very definition of being a ‘fool’ when they hear words like “Love your enemies… resist not evil… turn to him the other cheek also…“ etc.

To the world it is blasphemy to declare that we are the anointed, the Christ of Christ, even though it is Christ’s Himself who tells us:

Joh 20:21  Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.

We all differ in the details of our “experience of evil” which the Lord has “written in [our] books” before we were born.

Psa 139:16  Thine eyes did see mine unformed substance; And in thy book they were all written, Even the days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was none of them. (ASV)

Ecc 1:13 I applied my heart to inquiring and exploring by wisdom concerning all that is done under the heavens: it is an experience of evil Elohim has given to the sons of humanity to humble them by it. (CLV)

The scriptures reveal that there is one thing we all have in common, and that is the most insidious of all sins. It is the sin of self-righteous pride. The tendency the Lord has placed within all flesh to exalt ourselves, protect our pride, and give ourselves all the credit for what the Lord gives us to do is as natural as breathing.

Yet, if we are granted to believe what the Lord tells us, then we must all admit that the blood of all the prophets from Abel to Zacharias should be required of each of us simply because the Lord brings each of His elect to see and acknowledge our own iniquity and realize that the sins we are actually guilty of committing bear witness to the fact that all other sins mankind has ever committed are within our (my) flesh.

1Jn 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

I have never literally committed murder, yet the scriptures reveal that from the Lord’s perspective I am a murderer, because I am guilty of hating my fellow man at various times:

1Jn 3:15  Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.

You and I are just naturally much too self-righteous to see ourselves as murderers. So what, if we have hated someone. “Even if we hate our perceived enemy at this very moment, what’s the big deal?” we self-righteously ask. After all, it is just natural to hate your enemies, and Moses actually told us to hate our enemies:

Deu 20:16  But of the cities of these people, which the LORD thy God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth:

Mat 5:43  Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
Mat 5:44  But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

The fact that Christian ministers think nothing of urging those in their charge to go to war and “fight for God, family and country” demonstrates how lightly they think of the doctrines of Christ and how lightly they think of their spiritual adultery. The fact that a so-called ‘great man of God’ can say “If you try to burn the American flag next to me, I will whip you if I can” and get a standing ovation for such blasphemous words, shows just how self-righteous we are as we ignore and literally despise Christ admonition to us…“resist not evil”. It is for this reason that the Lord declares:

Jer 3:9  And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks.

“Stones and stocks” are idols of our hearts” (Eze 14:1-9). “Stones and stocks” are all our false doctrines which we make light of as they nullify the doctrines of Christ, and yet we still claim Him as our husband. We are at this time in our experience ‘Christians’ in name only, insisting on eating our own spiritual food and wearing our own spiritual raiment, but calling ourselves ‘Christian’, just as Isaiah predicted of us:

Isa 4:1  And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.

‘Meat’ symbolizes spiritual food, and ‘apparel’ signifies “the righteousness of saints”. “Eat[ing] our own bread and wear[ing] our own apparel” here in Isaiah is the same as “committing adultery with stones and stocks:

Joh 6:57  As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.
Joh 6:58  This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.

Rev 19:8  And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

The fact that it is “seven women” who are saying this is the same as saying:

Jer 3:10  And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith the LORD.
Jer 3:11  And the LORD said unto me, The backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah.

“Seven women” symbolize the complete church, the whole of Israel, “Backsliding Israel and treacherous Judah”, which have both apostatized from their own spiritual Husband.

When the Lord tells us “The backsliding Israel has justified herself more than treacherous Judah” what He is telling us is that we will have that same experience, of feeling and being forsaken both within and outwardly. It is all a work of the Lord for our good. Being those few who are being judged in this age does not exempt us from experiencing being forsaken of the Lord Himself “for a small moment”. The fact is that our being judged in this age necessitates this feeling of being forsaken of all men and by God Himself “because as [Christ] is so are we in this world.

1Jn 4:17  Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgmentbecause as he is, so are we in this world.

Our judgment is taking place at this very moment, and our heavenly Father is turning His back on our flesh as we are learning to die with Christ to our old man. “As He is so are we in this world” (1Jn 4:17). If it happened to Christ as He died, so it will also happen to us as we die with Him:

Isa 54:7  For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.
Isa 54:8  In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the LORD thy Redeemer.

1 Peter 4:17 tells us when we “begin” our “day of judgment” spoken of in 1 John 4:17:

1Pe 4:17  For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

Do we believe that:

Gal 2:20  I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Does being “crucified with Christ” exclude the most painful part of that crucifixion? Does our crucifixion exclude Isaiah 54:7-8? Are those words applicable to Christ alone? I think not! We to must live by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God and feel rejected of God “for a little moment”.

We have all experienced and are experiencing the rejection of the entire world, both secular and religious. At some point while he was in prison at Rome, Paul’s own prophecy of Acts 20 came upon him.

Here is what Paul prophesied to us and to the elders of Ephesus, a city in the Roman province of Asia:

Act 20:17  And from Miletus he sent to Ephesus, and called the elders of the church.
Act 20:18  And when they were come to him, he said unto them, Ye know, from the first day that I came into Asia, after what manner I have been with you at all seasons,
Act 20:19  Serving the Lord with all humility of mind, and with many tears, and temptations, which befell me by the lying in wait of the Jews:
Act 20:20  And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publickly, and from house to house,
Act 20:21  Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
Act 20:22  And now, behold, I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there:
Act 20:23  Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide me.
Act 20:24  But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
Act 20:25  And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more.
Act 20:26  Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men.
Act 20:27  For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.
Act 20:28  Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
Act 20:29  For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
Act 20:30  Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.
Act 20:31  Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.

Saul of Tarsus was zealous for the traditions of the fathers to the extent that he persecuted and wasted the lives of many who had come to know Christ.

Gal 1:13  For ye have heard of my manner of life in time past in the Jews’ religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and made havoc of it:
Gal 1:14  and I advanced in the Jews’ religion beyond many of mine own age among my countrymen, being more exceedingly zealous for the traditions of my fathers.

In that position, Paul was Aholah, the Lord’s wife who first forsook Him and committed adultery with the nations of this world. We all at some time ignore this commandment:

2Ti 2:3  Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
2Ti 2:4  No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life [politics, military service]; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

No soldier can be loyal to his country and the country of His enemy at the same time, and this world is the enemy of our Lord. These words were inspired of our Lord in admonition to you and to me:

Jas 4:4  Ye adulterers and adulteresses, [Aholah and Aholibah] 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.

The rejection of Christ by the Jewish church of His day is typified by the older sister, Aholah. Paul’s rejection by “all they which are in Asia”, and the rejection of the apostle John by Diotrephes and “the seven churches of Asia” is all typified by Aholibah, the younger of the two sisters of Ezekiel 23:

Eze 23:1  The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
Eze 23:2  Son of man, there were two women, the daughters of one mother [“the church in the wilderness” (Aholah) and “grievous wolves among you” (Aholibah)]:
Eze 23:3  And they committed whoredoms in Egypt; they committed whoredoms in their youth: there were their breasts pressed, and there they bruised the teats of their virginity.
Eze 23:4  And the names of them were Aholah the elder, and Aholibah her sister: and they were mine, and they bare sons and daughters. Thus were their names; Samaria is Aholah, [“Jerusalem which now is and is in bondage with her children”, Gal 4:25] the Jewish Christian church… and Jerusalem [Aholibah… the Gentile Christian church which also committed adultery against Christ].
Eze 23:5  And Aholah played the harlot when she was mine; and she doted on her lovers, on the Assyrians her neighbours,
Eze 23:6  Which were clothed with blue, captains and rulers, all of them desirable young men, horsemen riding upon horses.
Eze 23:7  Thus she committed her whoredoms with them, with all them that were the chosen men of Assyria, and with all on whom she doted: with all their idols she defiled herself.
Eze 23:8  Neither left she her whoredoms brought from Egypt: for in her youth they lay with her, and they bruised the breasts of her virginity, and poured their whoredom upon her [We bring the world with us as we come to know Christ].
Eze 23:9  Wherefore I have delivered her into the hand of her lovers, into the hand of the Assyrians, upon whom she doted.
Eze 23:10  These discovered her nakedness: they took her sons and her daughters, and slew her with the sword: and she became famous among women; for they had executed judgment upon her [We willingly give up scripture for lies, and we willingly send our sons and daughters off to physical war].
Eze 23:11  And when her sister Aholibah saw this, she was more corrupt in her inordinate love than she, and in her whoredoms more than her sister in her whoredoms.
Eze 23:12  She doted upon the Assyrians her neighbours, captains and rulers clothed most gorgeously, horsemen riding upon horses, all of them desirable young men.
Eze 23:13  Then I saw that she was defiled, that they took both one way,
Eze 23:14  And that she increased her whoredoms: for when she saw men pourtrayed upon the wall, the images of the Chaldeans pourtrayed with vermilion,
Eze 23:15  Girded with girdles upon their loins, exceeding in dyed attire upon their heads, all of them princes to look to, after the manner of the Babylonians of Chaldea, the land of their nativity:
Eze 23:16  And as soon as she saw them with her eyes, she doted upon them, and sent messengers unto them into Chaldea.
Eze 23:17  And the Babylonians came to her into the bed of love, and they defiled her with their whoredom, and she was polluted with them, and her mind was alienated from them.
Eze 23:18  So she discovered her whoredoms, and discovered her nakedness: then my mind was alienated from her, like as my mind was alienated from her sister.

Paul tells us that “all they in Asia be turned away from me”:

2Ti 1:15  This thou knowest, that all they which are in Asia be turned away from me; of whom are Phygellus and Hermogenes.

It so happens that “all they which are in Asia” would certainly include “the seven churches which are in Asia” to whom John addresses the entire book of Revelation:

Rev 1:4  John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;

While we have no scripture telling us specifically that Paul preached in Laodicea, we do have this:

Col 2:1  For I would that ye knew what great conflict I have for you, and for them at Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh;

Col 4:13  For I bear him record, that he hath a great zeal for you, and them that are in Laodicea, and them in Hierapolis.

Col 4:15  Salute the brethren which are in Laodicea, and Nymphas, and the church which is in his house.
Col 4:16  And when this epistle is read among you, cause that it be read also in the church of the Laodiceans; and that ye likewise read the epistle from Laodicea.

“The epistle from Laodicea” has not been preserved for us to read, but these verses demonstrate that Paul ministered to churches which “[had] not seen [his] face in the flesh”.

When he tells us “all they which be in Asia be turned away from me” that certainly would include the seven churches to whom John addresses the book of Revelation.

John Himself strongly hints at having this very same experience when he tells us of the power exerted over the church by an apostate named Diotrephes:

3Jn 1:9  I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.

Just how advanced was the apostasy of the New Testament church, typified by a ‘harlot’ in Isaiah 1:21, Jeremiah 3:8-11 and Ezekiel 23? The answer is that it was complete in “seven women… the seven churches”:

Isa 4:1  And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.

Seven signifies completion, and the apostasy of the New Testament Church was so complete before the death of the apostles Paul and John that this is what happened to those who even attempted to remain faithful to the apostles of Jesus Christ:

3Jn 1:9  I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not.
3Jn 1:10  Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he doeth, prating against us with malicious words: and not content therewith, neither doth he himself receive the brethren, and forbiddeth them that would, and casteth them out of the church.

Three thousand were added to the church on the day of Pentecost:

Act 2:41  Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. [Three thousand men began dying to their old man on the birth of the New Testament church, while three thousand men physically died on the birth of the “church in the wilderness” (Exo 32:28)].

As a side note, three thousand men lost their physical lives under the law of Moses on the first physical Pentecost in the wilderness:

Exo 32:19  And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the [golden] calf, and the dancing: and Moses’ anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount.

Exo 32:28  And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses: and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men.

Shortly after the birth of the church on the day of Pentecost another five thousand were added in one day:

Act 4:4  Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand.

Within just a couple of decades we read these words concerning the number of converts to the gospel who were still under the law of Moses [Aholah] in Jerusalem:

Act 21:17  And when we were come to Jerusalem, the brethren received us gladly.
Act 21:18  And the day following Paul went in with us unto James; and all the elders were present.
Act 21:19  And when he had saluted them, he declared particularly what things God had wrought among the Gentiles by his ministry.
Act 21:20  And when they heard it, they glorified the Lord, and said unto him, Thou seest, brother, how many thousands of Jews there are which believe; and they are all zealous of the law:

Those “many thousands” of Jewish believers, typified in Ezekiel 23 by ‘Aholah’, fell away from the very Lord who bought them with His own blood, and even the Gentile converts in Asia (typified by ‘Aholibah’), forsook His apostle Paul and cast those sent to them by the apostle John out of the church. That is why the book of Revelation is addressed to “the seven churches of Asia (Rev 1:4).

The Jewish church of Christ’s day is called by the apostle Peter “the church in the wilderness”:

Act 7:38  This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us:

Inasmuch as Judaism preceded the New Testament church, Judaism, which was still in the New Testament church and law keeping, which until this day still in the New Testament church, is the older sister ‘Aholah’, meaning:

אהלהּ    אהלה
‘ohŏlâh  ‘ohŏlâhh
o-hol-aw’, o-hol-aw’
The first form is in form a feminine of H168, but is in fact for the second form; from H168; her tent (that is, idolatrous sanctuary); Oholah, a symbolic name for Samaria: – Aholah.

Many in the apostate New Testament churches think that Judaism and law-keeping is spiritual adultery, and they teach against even reading the Old Testament. They may not realize it as such, but these Christians look down on those who are still under the law as sinners, and exalt themselves above Aholah, the symbol of “the church in the wilderness”. Little do they realize that the Lord Himself tells us that the apostate New Testament church is nothing less than Aholibah, of whom the Lord says:

Jer 3:11  And the LORD said unto me, The backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah.

Ezekiel tells us that backsliding Israel (Samaria) is symbolized by a whore named Aholah, and Judah (Jerusalem) is symbolized by Aholah’s younger sister, Aholibah, who we are told has committed adultery against her husband more than her older sister Aholah.

Jer 3:8  And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.
Jer 3:9  And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks.
Jer 3:10  And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith the LORD.
Jer 3:11  And the LORD said unto me, The backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah.

Moreover, this is what Christ revealed to the apostle Paul concerning these two sisters for our admonition:

Eph 2:11  Wherefore remember, that ye [Gentile Christians] being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands [by ‘Aholah’];
Eph 2:12  That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
Eph 2:13  But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
Eph 2:14  For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
Eph 2:15  Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
Eph 2:16  And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
Eph 2:17  And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
Eph 2:18  For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
Eph 2:19  Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God [have become ‘Aholibah’, who will soon forsake Paul and Christ].

While it defiles the land to return to an adulterous wife, the Lord has provided a means to put us to death and raise us up as a new man who can return to our husband and not defile the land, the place of His abode, the place of His dwelling:

Rom 7:1  Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?
Rom 7:2  For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband.
Rom 7:3  So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.
Rom 7:4  Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
Rom 7:5  For when we were in the flesh [alive “to the law”], the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.
Rom 7:6  But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in [the physically impossible] newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.

If we are “dead to the law through the body of Christ”, how can we possibly fall away from such a wonderful and blessed position to become Aholibah, the younger sister whose whoredoms exceed that of her older sister? We do so through the self-righteous apostasy which leads us to turn the grace of God into lasciviousness:

Jud 1:4  For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

This is where we will stop for today. Next week we will see that “ungodly men, turning the grace of God into lasciviousness are typified by ‘Aholibah’, within us, and as such do not see themselves as “lascivious”.
