#Worldview Report: Beliefs and Behavior of Adult Thinking in Modern Culture

Stephen Phinney | IOM Contributing Author



Seduction is a post-modern term used to depict the Biblical ideation of “lust.” Lust is the portal the enemy of God uses to access the mind. Once it settles into the mind, beliefs are born that reinforce lust. After beliefs are cemented, passions, which create temptations, demand a self-inflicted worldview.


Seduction is most commonly known for its depictive of being drawn in by another through sexual pleasures. While this is true, the organic root of this expression is in our Lord’s usage of the word “temptations.” Temptations are what are placed in front of us to activate lust.

For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. (2 Peter 1:4)


In the above passage, the Greek word used for lust is epithumia. It is a longing for what is forbidden. Also known as concupiscence - a strong sexual desire. The populated word “science” is from scientia - a Latin word associated with the Greek etymology of scene. Both mean a passion for knowledge. However, when you add consupis to its root, you will discover the passion for knowledge is accomplished through sexual desire. Therefore, I am about to prove to you that the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge is directly associated with sexual identification through individualized worldviews.

How is it that knowledge can be related to sexual pleasure?

In the Garden of Eden, the Serpent knew the clear distinction between knowledge and Life. The term used for sexual relations in Hebrew is to know. This is why the word “sex” was not used until Greek culture began to dominate the world through Alexandar the Great in 323 BC.

While the etymology of the word “sex” eroded into the act of to know, initially, it was the study of the differences between males and females. So, why would Satan consider it imperative to shift humanity from Life from the Tree of Life to knowledge of the sexes through the Tree of Knowledge?

It’s a stupid question but a good one.

Satan knew in advance the world would be willing to murder over the issue of individualized views regarding the world. Ho
