12 then you shall bring her home to your house, and she shall shave her head and pare her nails.
13 And she shall put off her captive's clothes, and shall remain in your house and bewail her father and her mother a full month; after that you may go in to her, and be her husband, and she shall be your wife.

4 they said to Him: "Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery [and boy, did we ever enjoy the XXX sex show as we played with our penises while watching that].
5 Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such. What do you say about her?"
6 This they said to test Him, that they might have some charge to bring against Him [with Roman police nearby guarding everyone's legal civil-and-sometimes-quasi-hedonistic Roman-law rights and right to a trial by jury]. Jesus bent down and wrote with His finger on the ground.
7 And as they continued to ask Him, He stood up and said to them: "Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her."
8 And once more He bent down and wrote with His finger on the ground.
9 But when they heard it, they went away [with their underpants wet with ejaculated semen having watched, and masturbated while gazing at, the aforementioned XXX sex show], one by one, beginning with the eldest, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing in front of Him.

First Corinthians 7:1 [+paraphrase] Now concerning the matters about which you wrote. It is good for a man not to touch a woman [to avoid premature sexual titillation, erection, and messy seminal ejaculation].
2 But because of the temptation to immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband.
3 The husband should give to his wife her copulation rights, and likewise the wife to her husband.
4 For the wife does not sexually rule over her own body, but the husband does; likewise the husband does not rule over his own body, but the wife does.
5 Do not refuse one another's subtle and overt romantic advances and suggestions for erotic sexplay, except perhaps by agreement for a short time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again with mutual denuding and totally-naked exchange massage culminating in genital-penetration/insertion coitus, lest Satan tempt you through lack of self-control.
1. The one addicted to warm-weather publicly-immodest quasi-exhibitionism....or getting drunk with alcohol or narcotics....or smoking.....overeating....or whatever other hang-up....must feel that their addiction is wrong, evil, wicked, inappropriate, unhealthy, despicable, and disgusting -- even in view of St Paul's obviously-needing-qualification statement in First Corinthians chapter 6 that "all things are lawful for me" (including running red stoplights?) which is better rendered: "It is lawful for me to suicidally murder myself because the law and agents thereof cannot arrest, fine, imprison, nor execute me for so doing, so law against such does not apply and is irrelevant." Or: "It is possible for me to do anything possible for me to do without first being stopped by law, which does not mean that the law and their enforcers will not then come after me to retaliate against me if I disobey the law."
2. The one addicted must want to promptly stop their addiction, and not postpone nor delay that stoppage.
3. The one addicted must fervently and repeatedly pray to Christ Jesus to cause them to stop their addiction.
4. The one addicted must have a legitimate substitute or replacement against what addicts and has addicted them, and must - by Scripturally-acceptable means and in practical and logically-workable ways - resolve problems and trouble-causing circumstances related to them which have caused or exacerbated continued enslavement to the addiction.
5. The one addicted must, more and more, and eventually completely (as much as possible), disassociate away from close friends and acquaintances (whether relatives or gang members or business-employee associates or whoever) who exhibit and are enslaved by the same addiction but have expressed absolutely no intention whatsoever to do what it takes to stop their addiction.
6. The one addicted must fear God rather than fear humans and worldly human negativisms coming from them (such as demonic critical or sarcastic remarks, discriminatory shunning or quarantine or isolation or other types of satanic exclusion and defamation, financial deprivation, etc.) which deviant and worldly humans can, would, and will impose against the one wanting to break free from the addiction. In their place, one must associate with non-worldly saint-status-desiring Christian friends who are themselves in the process of breaking free from addiction, or have already done so as much as they have, and inwardly desire to keep on doing.
7. The one addicted must have a traumatic experience, or shocking experience of some type, pertaining to something very important or dear to him or her for them to finally stop being addicted to what they are addicted to.
